Evil DM Productions (EDMP)



Con on the Cob
I had made plans to attend Con on the Cobb in Ohio. Well of course the surgery prevented that from happening. Since EDMP had already paid for table space, Chris agreed to man the table and take down emails for a free gift for stopping by. My fear was that the poor guy would be just sitting there doing nothing. Well that turned out not to be the case. Chris was able to show off his artwork including several pieces that he’s working on for the “Lost World of Hador”. He also had to state several time that he was not The Evil DM. Chris was also able to network and Schmooze with industry folks and all in all he reported having a good time. The folks who signed up for the “free gift” received a free PDF copy of Legends of Steel-Savage Worlds.

Legends of Steel
Speaking of Legends of Steel, in March we released the Savage Worlds Edition, Followed by the Broadsword Edition, And most recently the Barbarians of Lemuria Edition. Each version so far has garnered good reviews, including a great one on Amazon. LoS has been featured on “The Games the thing” podcast and on the “Game Geeks” You Tube show. We received a few dings for layout issues, but as far as the content, it’s all been positive. We are continuing our efforts to make LoS available to as many gaming systems as possible. The New Year should see the release of the ZeFRS edition of Legends of Steel and a Legends of Steel supplement for the new edition of the Basic Action Game System.

Partnerships
In recent months EDMP has been able to form creative partnerships with other companies, most notably Beyond Belief Games –creators of the Barbarians of Lemuria (BoL)RPG, and Basic Action Games- Developers of the Basic Action Super Heroes (BASH) line of RPG products. Since EDMP focuses on support products and campaign resources, rather than system creation, We believe these partnerships will enable our products reach a larger market as we assist and support existing RPG product lines Such as the BoL and BASH RPG engines in addition to continuing our support for the Savage World’s and 1PG systems.

GenCon
With the success of Legends of Steel and several other products in various stages of completion, We have decided to look into making a showing as a company at the 2010 GenCon. Our goal is to have several different products for sale at the convention as well as unveiling at least one product that weekend.
