Hey everyone, it’s been a while since I posted but I wanted you all to know I have some pretty cool Little Fears projects in the works. I need to finish up the first supplement for Streets of Bedlam, as well as a major project that crossed my lap recently, but there will be new releases for Little Fears Nightmare Edition starting around summer.
Small update but there it is. I’ll post more info as I can!

As you may have noticed, the summer season of Campfire Tales stalled with just one entry out the door. As summer ends soon (at least in this hemisphere), I’ve decided to shelve the rest of this season. With a full-time job and a lot of stuff due out for Streets of Bedlam still, I need to trim down my commitments and focus on where I want to steer my creative future. Part of that is pulling back from Little Fears as a line of game products.
But not from Little Fears.
I’ve long wanted to do more with Little Fears. I love the world, the fiction, and I think it has great potential. Back in 2001, it kickstarted my career. In 2009, it gave me direction and purpose as I entered a new turn in my path as a writer. Now, in 2012, I want to take it to the next level. I have a lot of ideas, and I will be announcing them soon, but know that I want more from Little Fears. It’s time to take the closet door off its hinges.
You all have been amazing with your support of the game line. I hope this next phase of Little Fears excites you as well.
As for the game line, this new focus leaves two announced LFNE products in limbo. I still want to do Book 3 and The Seven Kings but both will require a sizable time and money investment that I can’t commit to right now. But they are most certainly not forgotten.
That’s where things are at. It’s time for me to direct my attention toward doing the stuff I’ve wanted to do with Little Fears for years now. Thank you all for your understanding and support.

To everyone who ordered Little Fears dice, I have submitted the order to get that ball rolling. I hope to have them on-hand inside the month but I’ll let you all know if there are any delays. I’ll keep the pre-order going until Campfire Tales #7 releases (still looking like Wednesday from here) so you still have some time to get your orders in and get a free episode along with it.
If you ordered books along with the dice, I’ve been waiting until the dice order was done to ship them out. If you absolutely can’t wait (and I understand if you can’t), send me an email at email@example.com. Feel free to CC my main address as well (firstname.lastname@example.org) if the matter is urgent.
As you might know I’m in the middle of an out-of-state move that has thrown all manner of monkeywrenches into my gears. Some things have slipped but I’m trying my best to catch up. I have a handful of orders that need shipped, for instance. I have them packed up and ready to go. I plan to stop by the post office tomorrow and get all not-including-dice orders out then.
I’m headed back to Madison this weekend where I’ll grab all the Little Fears stock so I have it at the new place and can ship everything out more quickly. Once everything is settled with the move, and the summer season of Campfire Tales, and the Streets of Bedlam products I still need to refine and get out, I aim to get something pretty special started for Little Fears. But more on that later.

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.

Hey Little Fears fans! Campfire Tales #6 is still slated for release next week but after that I’ll be focusing on a new RPG project for a bit, my upcoming gritty neo-noir crime setting Streets of Bedlam: A Savage World of Crime + Corruption.
I launched the Kickstarter for it last week and the response has been amazing. Early supporters of the game will get credit, can get listed as an NPC in the book, get some Kickstarter-exclusive archetypes, influence future supplements, or even immortalize themselves as major players in the world of Streets of Bedlam!
I hope you check out the new project. I’m posting previews on StreetsOfBedlam.com. Two of the game Archetypes are already up (Monster and Valkyrie). Future updates will reveal more Archetypes, new rules, and more.
If this sounds up your alley, I would really appreciate your support!
