Happy (belated) 2014, Bedlamites!
Things have been quiet around here for a while so I wanted to give you all an update as to where things stand in the world of SoB.
All Kickstarter packages have been sent out. You should have received yours in mid-December at the latest (speaking to you international folks) so no shipments should be lagging. If you have not received yours, please let me know!
Sounds of Bedlam
Work continues on the soundtrack to SoB. I hope to have an update on that soon with a release early this year.
Okay, first and foremost, I’ve reached out to the Kickstarter backers who opted to influence a future scenarios. I’ve gotten most of the responses in and I’ll be working on them throughout the winter and spring. My hope is to have a half-dozen 6k word scenarios out through end of Summer. That might be a bit aggressive but I am making these a priority. The current list is:
“A Priest + A Rabbi Walk Into a Bar”
Two members of the clergy are found dead on the floor of Durbin’s Bar + Grill. The scene was obviously set up to look like they offed each other but some key clues point the trigger finger in another direction.
“Live Nude Girls”
The ladies of Bricktown have enjoyed relative peace since Queenie ascended the throne. But somebody in town has taken some fungirls hostage and is using them as leverage to get something from the head Valkyrie. Something she’s not eager to part with.
“This Town is Gonna Kill Me”
One year ago, a well-meaning citizen talked a mild-mannered accountant out of throwing himself off the roof of his apartment building. When that same citizen goes missing, the accountant looks for help in finding the man–not knowing just how many people wanted his savior to disappear for good.
“The Devils from Dublin”
When word comes down that a couple brothers are in town looking to collect the debts due to their dear, departed father, the authorities launch a manhunt. But the truth is the brothers are looking for more than money, they’re after a high-ranking member of the Bedlam aristocracy and are more than willing to murder their way to them.
“The Ol’ Karaoke Landmine”
Mr. Muramoto’s new club is the hottest thing to hit Bedford in a long time. But when the mob families discover the Yakuza is backing the man’s venture–and using it to nab businesses that used to ally with the Mafia–the family heads threaten all-out war. If the situation can’t be resolved, the entire city is gonna burn.
“Canary in a Coal Mine”
A stoolie for the mob is found bobbing in the drink one hot summer night. His body is marked with warning to other would-be squealers. The next day, a key witness for a multi-year organized crime op reverses her testimony. A prosecutor on the rise isn’t about to let this stall his career, and he decides to enact his own plan to get the mafia to ease off his witness.
Secret Project Chingon
I currently have a writer working on the first big SoB supplement which I’m really excited about. I’ll have more details about this as it nears completion.
Alright, that’s where everything’s at! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday and a great start to the new year.
