Strahd Loves, Man Kills Reprinted and the Final Printing of Dirge of Urazya

Firstly, a huge thank you to everyone who bought a copy of the first issue of Strahd Loves, Man Kills or promoted it on social media. With your help I was able to sell out my print run in a week--which makes it the fastest selling project I've done to date! That encouragement will keep me going; more on that below.

If you missed out on grabbing a copy of SLMK, have no fear: it has been reprinted and is ready to ship! If you want a copy, you can find it here on my Big Cartel page.

Secondly, my Dirge of Urazya zine has also been reprinted. I had hoped to do another run of it sooner, but then the pandemic happened. If you want a copy of Dirge of Urazya, it is available here, but be forewarned if you were thinking of waiting: this is likely the final print run of that zine. Once it's gone, it's probably gone for good.

Thirdly, some news: the reception of Strahd Loves, Man Kills has been so rewarding that it is officially becoming a quarterly publication. There is more Ravenloft to come. 

In fact, can you keep a secret? The second and third issues of Strahd Loves, Man Kills are already written. Here's a taste of what will be in the second issue:

  • A Gothic wild-west themed take on the domain of Nova Vaasa
  • Dandy and inquisitor backgrounds
  • Advice on running Candlekeep Mysteries as a Ravenloft campaign
  • Seven classic factions from Ravenloft's past updated with a fresh coat of shadowy paint
  • Two nonplayer characters: the horrific artist Donesta Sangino and the doomed gunslinger Elleri Ban'Ethyn
  • Ideas for making gunslinging characters of your own
  • A bibliography of body horror inspirations
The second issue will drop in early October, just in time for it to make it to your doorstep by Halloween.
