The Manaverse Podcast: Magic: the Gathering Business / Game Store Entrepreneurship / LGS Professionals

Jess Carrier is the featured guest on the Manaverse Podcast today. Jess is the Head of Marketing and Events at Noble Knight Games in Wisconsin and we're going to dig into my favourite topic, which as you probably know by now, is marketing. We're going to discuss her experience jumping in as the head of marketing at Noble Knight, some of the trends we've been seeing over the past year, content creation, social media, and a ton of different marketing strategies that Jess is using to grow Noble Knight Games right now. Questions Give us a little background on the Noble Knight story and how you became the head of marketing. What kinds of marketing did Noble Knight do in the past? What are you focused on now? What kinds of campaigns have you seen drive the best results? How did you measure the success? Was there any marketing strategy that really underperformed? Thinking from the perspective of a smaller game store owner, maybe someone just starting out, what kinds of marketing do you think they should focus on? When it comes to marketing, what's the most important thing to keep in mind? What's in store for the Noble Knight in the future? What does success in marketing look like for you? Where can people find out more or connect with you?

If you would receive a salary for a year and a reasonable budget for support (e.g. art, layout, tech support, audio equipment),  what gaming-related project would you work on for a year? What are you curious about right now? What is something that is true about gaming that almost no one agrees with you on? There have been some cool releases in the past few years based on settings established in other media.  What are some other IPs that are ripe for a ttrpg adaptation? What episode(s) of MUP are you the most proud of? We wish Jon the greatest of luck and success in his next adventures. Goodbye and goodnight Jon!

The Campus Crier is where we keep all the mythos related news and info for the podcast, this episode was recorded on January 28th, 2021. Delta Green: Black Sites collects Delta Green operations that were previously published only in PDF or in standalone paperback modules. They lock bystanders and Agents alike in unlit rooms with the cosmic terrors of the unnatural. Unwanted survivors rise from death or slumber into the nightmarish life of humanity. The Black Sites hardcover is available for preorder, and will ship in February. Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman are officially returning to the Dragonlance franchise. Weis recently announced that she and her writing partner, Hickman, will be writing a new trilogy set to follow their classic fantasy novels with Del Rey Books, with the first installment to tentatively hit stores late 2021. Murph saw on Reddit that painter Francois Baranger, who’s been illustrating the Lovecraft books being published by Free League Press, is currently finishing a secret project related to “The Call of Cthulhu,” (by which we assume the story, not the roleplaying game), and then he’ll be working on The Dunwich Horror which should be released in 2022.  DEATH IN SPACE is an upcoming science-fiction tabletop roleplaying game, where players take the roles of explorers and laborers looking for their next big score. Inspired by the gritty science fiction of films like Prospect and Outland, Death in Space takes you to a Universe where technology is rusty and broken and society is harsh and desperate. And although there is something lurking out there, man is still the greatest enemy. In terms of rules, the main influences are the rules-light games of the indie and OSR scene. Chaosium welcomed two new employees, Simeon Cogswell and Matt Ryan. Simeon will be their in-house layout artist and graphic designer, and Matt will be their in-house cartographer. Congratulations to them both!  Blue Fox Comics, a UK based comic book publisher, recently published The Mountains of Madness, a graphic novel that is a sequel to Lovecraft’s story, At the Mountains of Madness.  Sponsor We want to thank Noble Knight Games for returning to sponsor our show.

If you are a fan of this community, please consider donating or purchasing something from their online store. Every little bit helps.  Jon discovered a fan made online comic book, Batman: Eldritch. As the name implies, it blends Batman and the Cthulhu Mythos. It’s a fairly short read. The story’s not bad and the art is pretty cool looking. Very evocative for the subject matter. Check it out.  The Malleus Monstrorum hardcover two-volume slipcase is now available from the Chaosium website! This is a beast, (pun intended)! Chaosium also released a short YouTube video that displays the new slipcase edition of this immense bestiary.  It looks like a production company, Full Moon, is looking to create a television series called Miskatonic U which will center around the university and the town of Arkham, Massachusetts. According to a Screen Rant article, it will be structured like the Stephen King series, Castle Rock. So far, there’s no indication on when this series would launch or who would be carrying it.  Sponsor We want to thank Noble Knight Games for returning to sponsor our show.

This edition was collected on December 1st, 2020. Chaosium has released a new set of jigsaw puzzles over on their Redbubble store. The different puzzles include much of the iconic art from the company’s run and includes many Call of Cthulhu and Runquest images. A number that are from the Berlin sourcebook that look really cool. The first Apocthulhu book is available in POD! Keeper Dave got his contributor copy and it’s huge and colorful and lovely in many apocalyptic shapes and sizes.  You can get Free League’s At the Mountains of Madness from their store now! It's a beautifully illustrated book, Keeper Jon already has a copy and can attest to it. Some news from Niels Hobbs and the Lovecraft Arts and Sciences Council that is pretty worrying for any of us that is hoping for a Necronomicon 2021. Niels has sent out an email and started a GoFundMe page to help cover expenses that have been incurred due to a lack of business because of COVID-19. He is asking for $30,000 in donations to help pay for rent, payroll, insurance, etc. Personally I have no issue helping them out and if I’m honest I feel a little bit guilty that I haven’t bought more stuff from their online store in the past. As of recording he has raised roughly 1/3 of the total in about 12 hours. I really hope that this helps Niels out, and that this allows for the massive undertaking that is the planning for a conference like Necronomicon to proceed in the future. Personally, I can’t imagine not going to Providence next year. It would seriously impact me if I was unable to go.  MUP Patreon If you haven’t heard yet, we have redesigned our Patreon and so far   the feedback has been all positive!

This edition was collected on November 20th, 2020. Paradox brings Vampire: The Masquerade tabletop game development back in-house, the company announced Thursday. This comes after Paradox yanked the product line from the then White Wolf company after many Alt-Right and LGBTQ+ worries arose from the 2018 Vampire 5th ed release. Paradox admitted to having little or no oversight of Whitewolf and gave the product line to Modiphius to develop. In the last two years Modiphius only released one product, Fall of London, in that time which tried to change game mechanics and mythology. So Paradox is now managing Vampire the Masquerade in house under the World of Darkness brand.  Chaosium is releasing the Alone Against The Tide PDF just in time for Thanksgiving for even more solo horror adventures. The PDF is less than $7. There’s not just one but TWO Symbaroum Bundles of Holding. Symbaroum is Free League’s dark fantasy setting, and the bundles are for sourcebooks for the SYMBAROUM dark-fantasy tabletop roleplaying game, as well as all the Symbaroum Settings a GM needs for adventure in the primeval forest of Davokar.  Mike Diamond and the Old Ways Podcast are going to the Orient, specifically the Horror on the Orient Express. Mike shared a teaser video with us that will be available by the time this episode is released.  Our friend Bret Kramer at Sentinel Hill Press has released Miskatonic Country Scenarios - A Keeper’s Guide. You can get it on DriveThru for $5. It looks like Wizards of the Coast is being sued again this time by Gale Force 9 for failing to approve products already agreed to be released. This is basically the same case as the Dragonlance suit from a few months ago.  Bayt-al-Azif #3 is out! It’s got a number of new scenarios, including 1920s, modern and 1960s; an interview with the Great Old One Sandy Petersen himself; as well as an article by friend of the show Dean Engelhardt. At 124 pages for $8 on DTRPG, it’s well worth the purchase price. It has articles and scenarios by a whole bunch of new authors, and I think it’s a great way to hook up with some fresh new content at a very reasonable price.  MUP Patreon If you haven’t heard yet, we have redesigned our Patreon and so far   the feedback has been all positive!

It was great! I was able to determine that Roll20 only allows you to roll 18 dice at a time, so my attempted 90d6 roll had to be done in chunks. Then I also ran a game of Troika! for some of my Wednesday Group. And it was soo much fun! Troika! is an rpg that was apparently created by putting a magic-mushroom eating Lewis Carrol and William Burroughs on junk in the middle of the Surrealist Exhibition in Birmingham and asking them to create an RPG setting. It’s fantastic. Dave - I am waist deep in play-testing my super secret Cthulhu game, and that’s going great.

The book is a setting and bestiary for the “green-hued dark-fantasy” based on middle England. Edwin did the 5e conversion for the setting and Ennie Award winning artist, Glynn Seal is the primary author, artist, and layout artist. I’ve seen the 11 page teaser PDF and it looks really quite cool. You can get a PDF for $25, $35 for a POD softcover, and $45 will get you a hardback with an amazing fold out map. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/necromancergames/midderlands-setting-and-bestiary-for-fifth-edition/description There is a PDF “taster” available here: https://1drv.ms/b/s!Asryxq7YIiBZhtYMcbTPSbPWDiKf9Q?e=0fsfef Good Friend of Jackson Elias and all round awesome guy Paul Fricker has a new scenario for Call of Cthulhu out in the Miskatonic Repository called Full Fathom Five, a reference to Shakespeare’s Ariel’s song. It is set on board a whaling ship in the Pacific ocean in 1847 and involves a series of deaths or murders on board. Some of our own illustrious members, past and present, have played this as playtesters including Keepers Dan & Chad, Editor Max and a whole slew of other people we know and love. It looks really fantastic, so go and check it out. You can get the PDF at DriveThru for $6.99 Mork Bork and the Swedish Kartel are releasing an LP! Putrescence Regnant is billed an “ear-shattering, rot reeking bog crawl for Mork Borg.” A little more info was leaked with the cryptic announcement at the Mork Borg Discord server of which we have a screenshot in the show notes. Cyberpunk Red, Mike Pondsmith’s iconic dystopian sci-fi RPG, finally has a release date and a price point! Cyberpunk Red will come in at $60 for the physical book and $30 for the PDF, and should come out on November 19th and Nov 14th for the digital. Thanks to a data dump at the R. Talorisian website, we know the book has 457 pages and 211,000 words and 143 individual pieces of art! Murph is excited about this one. Brett Kramer’s Sentinel Hill Press has finally re-released The Dare, that fantastic CoC scenario that we all love, and updated it for 7th edition! You can pick it up at DTRPG for $14.99, and that price will be discounted from the eventual price of a physical book that is also coming out soon! Congrats to Brett for getting this all wrapped up! Sunken the gm-less RPG using Trophy Dark, of which I am a backer, is at the printers! I’m really excited about this and can’t wait to have this book in hand, because the PDF was absolutely gorgeous. Arkham Relic Hunt from Squamous Studios, something else that Dave and Murph have backed, is about to ship out within days of this recording. Children of Fear, a new Call of Cthulhu campaign set in classic 1920s mentioned way back in 2019 is finally getting some updates from Chaosium! Lynne Hardy’s campaign across Asia will come out early 2021 and is 416 pages long. The cover was released through all of their social media outlets.  A DG hack of Cthulhu Dark called Cthulhu Deep Green has been released on DTRPG and it looks really quite cool. The latest scenario that was just released and is called The Linear Men. You can get both of these from DTRPG and both have a POD option that at the time of recording was $12 & $15 each, so a pretty good deal. And I’m a sucker for Cthulhu Dark clones and so I’ve already bought Deep Green and it is pretty awesome.

A double meat episode! First off, Stu gives an overview of Keith Herber's series of Lovecraft Country sourcebooks for Call of Cthulhu: Arkham Unveiled, Return to Dunwich, Kingport: City in the Mists and Escape from Innsmouth. They are an important piece in the puzzle of how to present large regions in a way that is helpful and engaging for roleplaying games. Second, Hambone is a-glow for the new Dungeons & Dragons adventure compilation, Ghosts of Saltmarsh, which reprints a number of classic D&D scenarios, including the U-series: Sinister Secret of Salt Marsh, Danger at Dunwater and The Final Enemy. Surprising no one, Stu is less enthusiastic. Don't let that grump stop you, though. Ghosts of Saltmarsh is for sale now at our sponsor, Noble Knight Games. From May 27 to June 15, use the promo code CLASSICS, in store or online, to get $5 off purchases of $25 or more!

We start off this week with Monarch, a set collecting game about sisters vying for the throne. It has very lovely art. We also announce our partnership with Noble Knight Games. You can use the coupon code NOBLEVINTAGE online or in-store to get $5 off any purchase of $25 or more. Offer expires May 12, so get on that! The main event is Skyrealms of Jorune, a very strange RPG from the 80s, created by Andrew Leker with gorgeous illustrations by Miles Teves. It is weird and wild and I bet if you are a certain age, you for sure remember the advertisements for it in Dragon Magazine. We also talk about weird dice and the lost art of paste-up work in the age before digital layout for publishing. This one goes places, folks. We wrap up with a chat about the games that never grabbed us and the games we never want to play again. Let us know which games you hate! Drop us a line at the email below!
