Alyeskan Tales is now out and listed as Pay What You Want on the OneBookShelf network of sites.


It contains three short stories and is intended to help promote Utherwald's forthcoming Frozen Skies setting for the Savage Worlds system. So every purchase not only helps Utherwald to grow but also to help get Frozen Skies out that little bit quicker.

The print version of Alyeskan Tales is still in the works, expect to see it in the next few weeks.

Time to get the ball rolling properly, I'm trying to produce a Pulp Adventure setting for the Savage Worlds system called Frozen Skies. Money is proving to be the biggest hurdle in getting it finished, so I've opted to give GoFundMe a shot in hopes of being able to get the final product out.

Yes the GoFundMe campaign has been up for a week already as I figure out how everything works as part of a 'soft opening' as it were, but a big thank you to Steven Mortimore for his generous donation. But now I really need to push this if it is to go anywhere, so I ask that people at least share this even if they don't decide to donate.

Other than promote this heavily the plan is to have a new piece of artwork done for every £100 raised, mainly as a sign that everyone's help is nudging Frozen Skies ever closer to being finished. In the next week or so I hope to be able to have up either concept art or finished artwork.

Thanks for your time in at least reading this.

Small update, just mainly showing what all the donations will be spent on.

This is a Work In Progress picture of one of the many NPCs that will appear in Frozen Skies when it is completed.

Stock ordered and fees paid so that Utherwald can put in an appearance at this year's Diceni event. There will be copies of Alyeskan Tales available for purchase along with free copies of a Frozen Skies one sheet adventure for the Savage Worlds system.

Also a reminder about our GoFundMe campaign to help get Frozen Skies funded and thus released, feel free to check out or share gofundme.com/utherwald

Another small update, the project funded picture is nearing completion as you can see here. Further donations would help pay for further artwork to be done, though a big thank you to donors so far.

Tis Utherwald Wednesday Again! (Hm, may need to rethink that name...)

This week is a look at the territory of New Gwentia, the heart of the Commonwealth in Alyeska.

Though if there is anything you'd like to see or know more about then by all means just ask.

Version 1.2 of the Frozen Skies Setting Rules has been uploaded, now includes starting cash and some weapons. For general gear it's suggested you use either Deadlands Noir (if you have it) or what would be appropriate for a 1930s era setting.

*City of the Wulf is a new project thats currently pending, it is intended to be a source book that covers the city of Point Fenris located in the Wulflands. It is a city under siege with the Wulvers at its gates and even more sinister forces lurking within.

New month, new post time.

In this latest offering from the Press we take a brief look at Darmonica's long-lost masters of technology, the Ancient Terrans. There are also suggestions how to include them in your own games.

Some of the Frozen Skies artwork is now up on DeviantART, the artist has given their full permission for the art pieces to be sold as prints. Money from each print sold will go towards funding Frozen Skies and getting the book completed.

Time And Time Again!

Mark your calenders for a brief overview of the...ugh...Darmonican Calender, glimpse at how the flow of time is marked and a little bit of a history lesson thrown in for good measure.
