[Now Available] The Incompleat Olden Lands

By James Mishler with Jodi Moran-Mishler

Nine years late and more than a few details short, here finally is the Incompleat Olden Lands, the gazetteer of my first new world.
Boy howdy, did I learn a few things NOT to do with building worlds with this one. Lessons that were still not learned for a time; took a while for the lesson to take, so to speak. Biggest lesson – start small, not big! Too much, too many details, too many things to juggle in the design and development eventually bogs you down and burns you out.
I got a good bit along with this one. Maybe three-fifths of the way, perhaps somewhat more, from a glance. Some sections are mostly done; other sections are skeletal, and some are in-between.
The Incompleat Olden Lands includes the following sections, some more complete than others:
Humans of the Olden Lands (Complete)
Demi-Humans of the Olden Lands (Complete)
Humanoids of the Olden Lands (Complete)
Languages of the Olden Lands (Complete)
Political Divisions of the Olden Lands (Various levels of completion)
Geography of the Olden Lands (Various levels of completion)
Complete Monster List by Area (Complete)
Complete Resource List by Type (Complete)
Coinage by Realm (Complete)
Titles and Order of Precedence (Very Incomplete)
Gods of the Olden Lands (Incomplete List Only)
114 pages (108 containing material), $5.00

[NOW AVAILABLE] Limited-edition, limited-run copies of James Mishler Games Books

Gary Con XIV has come and gone, and it took me most of two weeks to recover from four days. Whew, what a show!

While it was a busy show, I still have copies of the five special print products I printed for Gary Con. 

These are now for sale, US sales and shipping only.

Each book is priced as listed below. A full set -- one of each book, five books total -- costs $70, including shipping. Shipping is in a medium-sized flat rate box via USPS Priority Mail (tracked and insured for $50).

Books will be shipped bagged and boarded, and with bubble wrap and/or packing peanuts in the box.

If you are only ordering one or two, they can fit in a USPS Priority Mail flat rate envelope; shipping then costs an additional $5 above the total for the one or two books.

The five special, limited-edition, limited-run print products are as follows:

Barbarian, Demi-God, Dragonborn includes the PDFs of the Barbarian Class, the Demi-God Race, and Dragonborn. $10.

Ghosts – The Incorporeal Undead includes the entire manuscript from the PDF. $20.

Hercynian Grimoire #1 (Vol. 1, No. 1) includes the entire manuscript from the PDF. $15.

Myrkridder, Ogres, & Vampires includes the PDFs of Myrkridder – The Demonic Dead, Ogres of the Olden Lands, and Vampires of the Olden Lands. $15.

Quick Start Race & Class Guide includes the entire manuscript from the PDF. $10.

Other than a full-cover cover, these are all in black & white, with no new art or other fancy bits.

There were ever only 41 of each of these printed. The first prints, to test the print, are my personal copies; the first of the 40-print run went to my wife, Jodi, as has always been the case with all my print products; and the second went to Dan Proctor of Goblinoid Games. 

These will NEVER AGAIN be reprinted in this format; in fact, except maybe for Ghosts, they are likely to never be reprinted in ANY format, though I cannot promise that.
