Kan't Stop the KoP (Preview)

It should come as a surprise to no one that N. Jolly's Kineticists of Porphyra and Kineticists of Porphyra II have been extremely well-recieved.

Needless to say N. Jolly is working on the third volume as we speak and he sent over some preview content.

Sound-The Field of Blue Echoes
Value: 2,500 GP
To a vibrokineticist, each and every sound is different and unique, telling a story of its origin as well as its departure from the world.  In a rare few places, there exist a flower that captures all of these sounds, drawing them from the earth and into its petals, creating a symphony of unique sounds never heard before.  It is in this place where the power of sound is at its strongest, a place vibrokineticist search for without fail to master the secrets of mimicking such tones.

Upon finding a field of Blue Echoes, those who wish to gain their power must sit among the flowers for one hour, spending this time speaking their name over and over again.  This gives the flowers enough time to absorb this sound, drawing it into themselves and robbing the person of their name until it can be recovered.  A single flower will draw in the name of each person involved among the hundreds that make up the field.

After their name has been lost, those involved must make five successful DC 20 perception checks among the flowers within the next 2 minutes or have their name lost forever, suffering 4 points of charisma drain as well as losing any memory of what their name was.  This charisma drain can only be healed by a wish or miracle spell, although their name cannot be recovered by mortal means.  Those who manage to find the flower with their name gain a +4 competence bonus to all sound based perception checks.  Kineticist who possess the sound element also gain access to the following utility wild talent:

Sound Mimicry
Element sound; Level 3; Type utility (Sp); Burn 0
You can recreate any sound you have heard, including the voices of others as well as increasing the DC of all sound utility wild talents you possess by 1.

And a tristalt blast I know people have been wanting forever (at least as long as tristalt was a thing)

Hellfire Blast
Element(s) fire and void; Type composite blast (Sp); Level --; Burn 3
Prerequisite(s) blue flame blast and negative blast or void blast and fire blast
Blast Type: energy; Damage fire and negative

You burn your opponent with the flames of hell. Increase the damage die of this blast by 1 and treat it as though the improved burning infusion was applied to it, dealing both fire and negative energy damage. 
If you are waiting, and waiting for the next KoP release perhaps you would be interested in N. Jolly's Chi Warrior or his Eternal Mage.

Modern Horror - Flash Fiction

For a current project, I am seeking a number of submissions of modern horror flash fiction to open each of the chapters in our new horror rpg 4Saken.

This is what I am looking for:

  • Genre: All stories should easily be recognizable as horror stories in a modern setting. I am not looking for urban fantasy stories masquerading as horror stories.
  • Story Length: All stories should be from 700-800 words as that is what I can comfortably fit on a page of layout. 
  • Payment: Payment for accepted stories will be $15 US paid via paypal within 5 days of acceptance of the story.
  • Submission: Authors may only make one submission at a time to this project. Submissions should be sent to with the subject line: 4Saken Story. The file should be in .rtf format.
I will review each entry within 48 hours and reply with a rejection or acceptance at that time via email.
