2017 in Review - The Tavern, Continual Light and You

I must say, 2017 was one hell of a ride.

In no particular order: we launched a Discord Server (now with over 300 members), published our first small publications (Pocket Creatures 1 and 2), released Swords & Wizardry Continual Light as a Limited Beta, then a Revised Beta, followed by a PDF release on OneBookShelf (and a Copper Ranking on RPGNow) and a Print release on Amazon.

Ran a nice handful of sessions of SWCL at my FLGS and had a blast.

All together, Swords & Wizardry Continual Light has sold over 1k copies - 852 in PDF and 192 in print - and that doesn't include the 50 signed copies brought to GameHole Con and the 6 proof copies. All since mid October. That success lies firmly in your hands.

The Tavern's Facebook Community hit over 2k members before it was 2 years old. Yep, you guessed it. You again.

2018 promises to be even more awesome. Details will come soon enough. Its enough to keep me busy and excited in the coming year. I hope you'll share the excitement with me.

Thanks to everyone that reads, comments, listens to the weekly Tavern Chats, pipes in to the chats, drops into the Facebook community - each and every one of you has literally made my year. I feared that retiring from my regular employment would leave my sense of community with a bit of a hole, but that hasn't been the case at all. I couldn't ask for a more welcoming, kinder community to be a part of.

Thank you. Thank you all.

  1. Erik,

    Congrats on a great year and love the community you're building :) Really looking forward to next year as well.

    But, because I can, one word of un-requested advice. DO NOT forget to actually game and have some fun w/ this hobby. The last thing we need is for your to burn out on us.

  2. Three cheers for the Tavernkeeper!
    Hurray, hurray, hurray!!!
    Keep up the great work!
