It Came from the Stars Campaign Guide
The stars are here! The It Came from the Stars Campaign Guide is now at the printer and will soon plummet to earth. The Kickstarter-funded patron project was a wonderful success. Many backers gave their lives… er… talents and helped make this project truly take off. Thanks go to those backers for their great effort.
But the limited edition print run still has copies unclaimed. While supplies last, if you would like one of these hardcover, prestige color, numbered, and signed copies, preorder now. All preorders will also automatically receive PDFs of the Campaign Guide and the Extras and a copy of the Hero Lab data sets.
This edition will not be available anywhere else. There will, however, be a less expensive Print on Demand (POD) softcover edition available at all the usual places once this edition sells out.

Hey writers! We intentionally left one or two slots open in an upcoming anthology of fey tales to try to catch some unexpected talent. Want to submit something for it? Zombie Sky Press is open to submissions as of August 9.
The Requirements: Email your stories to firstname.lastname@example.org. Stories must be attachments on the email and in .doc, .docx, or .rtf format. No more than two submissions per person. No simultaneous submissions or reprints. We want 3000-5000 word stories about the fey. We will automatically reject any manuscript that doesn’t meet these requirements. The deadline for short story submissions is October 1, 2012.
The Details: This is an anthology of dark fantasy tales of the fey. Your story should involve fey in some way. The anthology is tied to The Faerie Ring product line published by Zombie Sky Press.
Moral ambiguity and emotional intensity are encouraged. We ARE looking for interesting characters, intense emotion, fanciful locations, frightful and fantastic (or gritty) stories. We are NOT looking for fables or retellings of classic fairy tales. We are also NOT looking for cliche RPG themes (such as parties of armor-clad adventurers storming the evil castle). No modernity or real world history or religions. But adapting elements of mythology and folklore is welcome.
This is a fantasy shared world (but it’s so broad and open that most things fantasy have a place). Just about any fantasy story can happen here, somewhere. Though in many ways it’s a traditional fantasy setting, you’re encouraged to go a little nuts. Bring on the flying castles, stolen babies, purchased memories, goblin markets, whatever. A little weird and over-the-top is fine (and even encouraged). Make it fantastic. And tend toward dark.
You are also not restricted to European flavors of fey (though they are certainly welcome). For instance, an Arabian-themed fantasy tale featuring peri or an Asian-themed tale featuring kitsune are welcome. (Our definition of the fey is a bit broader than some.)
We pay 5¢ per word for fiction.
We look forward to reading your word offerings!

We got so busy working on wonderful new shiny products that we forgot to make public updates for It Came from the Stars. Well, we are nearing completion! Most of the content is in, and we’ve started posting completed sections to patrons, such as adventures from Richard Pett and Colin McComb. Stay tuned for ore news!
The funding for It Came from the Stars sailed past 100% and is climbing. The first stretch goal to increase the page count is absolutely within reach!
But there’s only 13 hours left before funding is stopped. Take the plunge, and join us for a wondrous, terrifying, groovy ride!
Looks like our planet’s on course to survive another year, but a new year of unknown terrors is right around the corner. It Came from the Stars, your primer for the end of the world, is nearly 75% funded!
To ring in the new year, anyone that makes a new pledge to this project or upgrades an existing pledge (from 12/30 until close on 1/2) will receive a PDF of their choice from the Zombie Sky Press catalog for FREE. Even if we don’t meet the final goal! If (WHEN!) we do meet our goal, EVERY backer will get this benefit and ONE lucky, random backer will receive ZSP’s entire back catalog of PDFs.
Additionally, there’s a brand new backer level at $100 that gets you a 2012 Digital Pass, entitling you to FREE copies of EVERY PDF we put out in 2012! Those pledging (or already pledged for) more than $100 receive this as well.
Watch out, the stars are sneaking up behind you!

Brand new art from Roxxy Goetz of the astreid–fierce and brutal hunters! One of the new creatures being designed for It Came from the Stars.
The Astreid: Bold. Proud. Intense. Brutal. The astreid are hunters. These fey scour the stars, relentlessly chasing their prey. As dryads are connected to the woodlands and nereids to the sea, astreids are at one with the starry vastness above.
Unforgiving, like the dark expanse in which they thrive, they lead with a passion geared toward action. And usually violence. They are hunters, and their range is all they see.
If such a space nymph targets you, you best be getting your affairs in order.
