Updates!

Hello! It's been awhile. Hope you guys are still here.

We would firstly like to apologize for the lack of updates. As we mentioned before, things usually get real hectic for us from June onwards, but we didn't expect our full-time jobs to get in the way of publishing this much! We want to provide more material for the Buan Campaign Setting at the soonest possible time, but I admit that our progress has been terribly slow these days. And like many other fans of D&D 4E, we're watching out the Essentials line with bated breath. The Internet is rife with speculation on what it exactly means for the game, and we believe that it's best to release something after a major WotC release instead of before, to prevent too many updates to our products after people have started buying them.

Speaking of updates, however, I'm sure youre all familiar with the latest update from WotC. In it they made a bunch of rules changes (including the reworking of Magic Missile to mirror it's classic form), and the most important change for publishers like us are the new guidelines for monster design. We've taken a look at the new damage values, and decided to mix it with our own design principles. As such, we are pleased to announce that we have updated the monsters in both Tikbalang: Guardians of Kalikasan and Asuang: Shapechanging Horrors to reflect the latest updates.

In addition, since we were messing around with the tikbalang statblocks anyway, we decided to update them to the new format, making these tikbalangs easier to read during combat.

We also took the time to fix some minor grammatical errors that you, our readers, have pointed out. We would want to thank you for helping us increase the quality of our product, and we hope to hope to continuously hear from you as we churn out more material.

That's all for today. Keep in touch!
