Something I just noticed

There's more stock art than ever on RPG now, but over the last few weeks I've noticed fewer and fewer actual gaming releases. I know I'm buying the art, and doing stuff with it, but is anybody else? I'm worried the RPG market is stagnating a bit, which is probaly natural as people focus on Gen Con and the Pathfinder release.

Anyway, I'm working on some stuff right now.... Black Tokyo II and the Bastian sourcebook. The Bastain sourcebook is turning out to be really fun. I enjoy detailing new cultures and playing junior anthropologist, which makes world books like this rewarding to do. Plus, there's something exhilirating at designing a religion around a mostly forgotten pagan diety. It makes me feel like I'm reclaiming something, polishing up an old divine concept, and putting my own unique stamp on it. It's almost an act of worship, strange as that sounds.

Anyway, look for both soon, as well as some shorter releases as soon as I send 'em to Mark.

I hope your still planning on releasing Freeform Anthromorphica soon. I'll be getting my copy of Pathfinder thursday and your product was something I was really hoping to use with it.

Actually, I've got the draft of Freeform Anthropmorphica on deck. It's about 80% there, but it just needs some more love and attention. I'm putting the finishing touches on a cybernetics armory source book right now, and after I'm done with that, probably by this weekend, I'm going to dive back into FA and finish her off.

Thanks for the info. I was disappointed with the Anthropomorphic rules in the back of WotC's Savage Species, I'm hoping your version is more akin to what Palladium did with their After the Bomb product.
