A Totally Sweet Announcement

July 27, 2011

Okay, after lots of hard work and about a bazillion revisions, I am totally excited to show you all…

by Patrick Tsao 2011

…our new logo! Patrick made us yet another amazing piece. I’ll be working over the next few weeks to redesign the site to incorporate its badassness.

What’s that? You’re screaming for T-shirts and coffee mugs? An iPhone case? Oh, calm down, calm down. You can have an iPhone case. There, there. And a wall clock. (And if you have any other desires, feel free to email me with suggestions, steph at astroarcane dot com!) I am told that it is possible to obtain 20% off $50+ with the code “TA0727″ but you will have to tell me if it works! I suspect from the code it’s for today only.

An Interactive Adventure

July 18, 2011

Hello space fantasy enthusiasts, I have posted the first short piece of a new adventure, “The Violet Skies of Pa’Rill.” This story, unlike previous ones, is not given to you all in one piece. Instead, it pays homage to the fine tradition of Choose Your Own Adventure novels, letting you decide what Shaula will do at every turn of the story. Don’t worry, there are plenty of gruesome death options for you to avoid or seek out, as you desire!

I will be writing only one story path at a time, and I will be using this blog post to keep track of where we are. To put in your vote for what happens next, leave us a comment on the relevant Facebook post or tweet @Astroarcane with the tag #violetskies. I won’t be taking votes by way of private messaging/email/etc, only stuff posted to FB or Twitter.

UPDATE: I will be updating on Tuesdays and Thursdays, with occasional bonus pages if I have the time. :)

I hope this is as fun for you as it is for me!

Patrick Tsao did an incredible portrait of our favorite space wizard getting ready to fry some monsters. It’s up on the Characters page.

Thanks Pat! It looks awesome!

The Start of a New Adventure!

February 17, 2011

Greetings Wizards,

The first chapter of an exciting new story, “The Dead Ferryman”, has been posted.

Milo and Shaula find themselves entangled in a murder investigation on the rural planet of Phaeton.  Wizards just never seem to catch a break…

Read, enjoy, and let us know what you think!


Hooray, A New Adventure!

February 16, 2011

This story is called “What They Seem“, and it was spurred by a random prompt given to me by a writing group I just became a part of. I think the prompt was “a polished stone, a threatening note, a dream.” From that, came this (in a week, mind you. One week to spew out 11,000+ words!).

Okay, editing took a lot longer than that. Still, I’m pleased with this one.

Tell your friends! Leave comments! Etc, etc.
