The Near Future of Little Fears

lfneJason L Blair17 September 2012

Hey everyone,

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.

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.

Big March Announcement #3: VIIK

lfneJason L Blair30 March 2011

Reactions to Little Fears Nightmare Edition have been overwhelmingly positive. I was (and still am) truly humbled by how warmly folks received the new edition. But, as fans will with any new version or reimagining, people had questions about some of the changes. Why Belief instead of Innocence? Why the change in tone? Why a new system?

All good questions, but folks asked one question more than any other: Why did you get rid of the Seven Kings?

I had my reasons, which I’ve stated elsewhere, and I stand by the decision to keep them out of the main book. They are of another time, another tone, another idea, another Little Fears. They didn’t have a place in the Nightmare Edition.

Despite what I’ve said over the past eighteen months since the new version’s release, it appears my whim was only a suggestion to them. I should have seen it coming. I should have known the Kings would not stay silent forever.

It seems those cantankerous tyrants have busted their way out of the old edition and into the new.

Seven kids gone missing at the same time from seven different places. Authorities believe it was the work of professionals. But you have a different idea.

Everyone’s heard the stories about them but no one’s ever seen them. Far as anyone knows, they are just a rumor. A twisted take on an already twisted reality.

Story goes there are monsters older than Closetland. Or as old as anyway. They each had their own part of it, and they ruled over their terrible lands and did terrible things. They were the meanest of the monsters.

No one knows what happened or why they went away. But the story goes, those monsters, they want to come back.

And maybe, just maybe, they have.

LITTLE FEARS NIGHTMARE EDITION
THE SEVEN KINGS.

Introducing Little Fears Nightmare Edition: The Seven Kings: a seven-part journey into the parts of Closetland you thought were closed forever.

More details at a later date.
