UnFurnished Dungeon #1 – The Merrimack Mine

July 25, 2015

MerrimackMine coverIt seems it has taken much longer than it should have to get the first UnFurnished Dungeon completed.  There has been (and still is) a lot of format experimentation going on.  But, among the others, there is now a version making its way through the OBS approval system (though it probably won’t be greenlighted in time for their Christmas In July sale).

[UPDATE: It’s now available here:  http://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/153705/Merrimack-Mine-UnFurnished-Dungeon-1 ]

Part of what we’re experimenting with is different printing formats. For the OBS version, it is formatted as a 7.5″ x 9.25″ page.  That qualifies it as a small item, rather than a large one, and makes it less expensive to print.  It’s also going to be just black & white interior.  The PDF is the same size, so most people who get that and print it out are going to have wide margins all the way around.

There have been other sizes explored, as well, including 5.5″ x 8.5″ (classic white box/digest size), full 8.5″ x 11″ (standard letter), and a fold-out 3.5″ x 8.5″ that could be mailed in a standard business envelope (that we would distribute directly, and that might be even cheaper to produce and to mail, at least domestically).

Because this is still an experiment, I’m looking to get some feedback on this version, So, if you’re interested in this idea, and you’re willing to write a few lines about what you think are the good and the bad points in it, I’ll send you a copy of the PDF (either emailing it directly, or sending you a promotional copy from OBS).  I’m not going to do this forever; I was thinking I would cap it after a handful, though it may take a while before this gets to that point.  (Neither I nor Antherwyck House Games have all that much of a following, so it could be a while.  But I also don’t mind if you spread the word about this, either.)

The UnFurnished Dungeons were going to be a Patreon benefit, as well (and that’s still part of the plan).  I haven’t done much more to update the Patreon site recently, though I’ve seen that they are making some improvements to the systems there.  If you are interested in gtting this as a Patreon supporter, I’ll make sure you get a copy, too.
