Twelve Days

Twelve days from now, Æternal Legends — my modern fantasy roleplaying game — comes out. It seems only a couple of hours ago that we had a month to go. The real bugger is that we can't offer pre-orders yet. The other real bugger is that apart from the readers of a couple of livejournals, nobody really knows about the game. I must be honest, I'm a bit scared that nobody's actually going to buy the game.

It'd be fantastic if everyone reading who doesn't think it's a silly idea could spread the word. Mention the game to friends and other gamers. Sell them on it. Convince them to download the free preview and give the teasers a look. Because we can't offer pre-release copies, it's hard to get local game stores to buy in to the game, but if you can convince people you know to check it out, that'd be fantastic.

A primer as to our target audience (if you've not been reading along): Anyone who likes at least two of
  • Changeling: The Dreaming
  • The 10th Kingdom
  • the novels of Mary Gentle
  • The Princess Bride
  • Harry Potter
  • autopope's Hidden Familynovels
  • Kung Fu Hustle
  • the Fables comics
  • the novels of Charles de Lint
  • Neverwhere
  • the comics of Grant Morrison
  • the comics of Alan Moore
will probably get a kick out of Æternal Legends.

RPG.net's policy on self-promotion is murky at the best of times, but if people could include so much as a link in their signatures that'd be incredibly cool. I'm worried about going there just to promote my own game because I've not really posted there before — I don't want people to ignore my posts because I just shill my own wares.

Full "how to buy" information will come on the 24th of August. The book will be offered as print-on-demand or PDF through lulu.com

Until then, links to either http://www.mobunited.com or http://mobunited.livejournal.com/tag/aeternal+legends would be appreciated.
