Fear in the New Year

lfneJason L Blair27 December 2011

Season Two of Campfire Tales wrapped up last week with the release of #6: Old Man Winter. That brings the total number of products in the Nightmare Edition line to eight. I’m pretty proud of that. LFNE went a year after its release without additional material until the first Campfire Tales episode launched in October 2010. While I wasn’t able to pump out the 12 episodes I’d initially planned, I was able to readjust for the stutter in my workflow and publish half of them in about a year’s time along with the first full-sized supplement as well.

I ramped up my writing on all fronts this past year, contributing to other game lines and a very exciting video game project, and I look to continuing the trend in 2012. As some of you might know, I’ll be dedicating a good chunk of the first quarter to my new project Streets of Bedlam but Little Fears is a long-time love of mine and I have no intention of leaving it in the cold. On the contrary, I have some big plans for the property.

Last March, I revealed some information about a multi-part supplement called The Seven Kings. I’ve also dropped some hints about Book 3 here and there. I’d still love to do both next year but won’t commit to a time frame just yet. I’ll keep you all posted.

One thing I do want to announce now is that I’ll be releasing a summer season of Campfire Tales. The three episodes will be set in the hottest months which gives me a good excuse to finally release one of my personal favorite episodes, “Camp Howling Wolf.” I look forward to the change in season and I hope you like it as well.

Other plans for Little Fears exist, some more feasible than others, but I’ll hold tight on those yet. One promise at a time.

I want to thank you all for your support, your kind words, and helping to spread the word. I hope you had a wonderful year and an even better one awaits you in 2012.

    I’m excited to see what 2012 will bring us.

    What is going to be the main focus for 2012? The 7 kings supplement, Book 3, Campfire tales?

    I can’t wait to see what comes!

  2. Jason L Blair Says:

    For right now, the only definite is the summer run of Campfire Tales. I’m focusing on Streets of Bedlam currently and have some other potential irons in the fire so I won’t have a view of the rest of 2012 for a few months yet probably.

    Let it be said that I am looking forward to all of these. The Campfire Tales are wonderful (in fact, my friends and I are playing a campaign right now that consists of all the Campfire Tales strung together), Among the Missing was easily one of the best RPG supplements I’ve ever read (and so I look forward to book 3!), and I am extremely interested to see where you go with the Seven Kings in the Nightmare Edition setting.

    Between the first edition and LFNE, the tone is a lot more hopeful. The first edition was very sort of . . . Call of Cthulhu with children, for lack of a better description. It had the feel of general hopelessness–that at least half the party was going to die horribly by the end of it all. LFNE, at the very least, offers the opportunity to survive. Or, at the very least, it has the feel of it.

    In fact, given that at least one of the Kings was rewritten into the LFNE setting to be something completely different, I can only assume that you’re rewriting these characters from scratch. This piques my interest even more.

    Thank you for the kind words! I’m especially proud of Among the Missing and I hope Book 3 lives up to its quality.

    Three of the old Kings made it into LFNE (Bogeyman, Baba Yaga, and Titania) but that won’t matter; The Seven Kings will present the old Kings in a very different light.
