Cha'alt WebComic - Under Fuchsia Ska'ai


While I would love a feature film, followed by a sequel, prequel, and subsequent blockbuster movie trilogy... or even a TV series (animated or live-action, I'm not picky).  For the moment, I'm happy to be working on a humble, yet supra-awesome webcomic for my beloved Cha'alt.

For those who don't know, Cha'alt is an eldritch, gonzo, science-fantasy, post-apocalyptic campaign setting.  Interested in the gorgeous hardcover trilogy?  It's a reward tier for backing Advanced Game Mastering Like A Fucking Boss.

Anyways, Under Fuchsia Ska'ai is a webcomic drawn by Jae Tanaka (follow him @TanakaOSR and me at @VengerSatanis) and written by yours truly.  On the right is a promo to whet your appetite...

The plan is to create one page (not just a panel) of adventure each month.  To do any more than that requires funds.  I'm not sure where the money will come from... maybe crowdfunding, paywall, or RPG magazine / website that already gets a lot of traffic and is looking for more, perhaps some independent comic-book company will pick it up, or it's entirely possible that Dan Harmon will decide to put his considerable weight (only kidding, hoss) into a post-Rick and Morty spinoff show ensconced in the Cha'alt multiverse?

Yeah, I don't know how we're going to subsidize this thing, let alone monetize it.  All I know is that I want this thing to exist, so I'm going to fund it until a way presents itself.  

The first full-page should drop February 12th.  It's in production right now, and looking cool.  Can't wait for you to read it and see where this all leads...



p.s. Don't forget about VENGER CON II: Electric Boogaloo this July in Madison, WI.  It's going to be a legendary time playing old-school, OSR, and traditional RPGs all weekend long!

  3. Just dropping a note here....

    Grats on the colloboration with the Red Room! I havent picked up EPIC yet but Im betting its good!

    1. Thanks! Yeah, several pokers in the fire. Stuff is happening.

  4. An RPG magazine, you say?🤔
    Go on..
    Instead of a magazine entitled "Dragon," perhaps "Wormsign?" It's a song title, but I don't see a publication with that name. Not even a Dune fanzine. Weird. Maybe you could crowdfund individual issues like Knock! and other OSR publications.
    Came across this:
    Obviously Cha'alt. Was this yours or fiction based on someone else's campaign?
    I'm still finishing up my Jam contribution. It evolved a bit, grew tentacles and swallowed up some other ideas along the way. It's like a big ol' Katamari Damacy thingie.

    1. I would LOVE for someone else to organize and publish either a Cha'alt or Kort'thalis Publishing zine because I'm just too busy with everything else to create and manage that, too.

      Yep, that Prince of Nothing blog post is when he played in a few of my Cha'alt one-shots.

  6. Make it a Cha'altiverse/general OSR/things we're not ashamed for liking/tips and tricks for GMs thingie and I'd help out. I'd love if it was something printed that I could hold in my hands and make primate sounds over.
    "Oh, cool! A mini-dungeon!"
    I miss old school Dragon articles and the last of Polyhedron when they were doing minigames like the Pulp Heroes d20 game. Paizo did a pretty good job with Dragon and Dungeon when they had the licensing agreement.
    There are some good OSR publications that have come down the pike, but they aren't published frequently.
