McNabb Games and MGR
As many who have followed our progress may have noticed, McNabb Games has went from a simple self publishing content creator to a full fledged store front with publishing options available to everyone. As of February of 2017 McNabb Games has opened it’s first brick and mortar location which has lead us to undergo a few changes. To begin with I understand that having a storefront and a publishing house tied into one name brand and one site can become a bit confusing. That is why we are going to make McNabb Games focus on being our physical and digital storefront. At McNabb Games you can purchase all of our content as well as content from other creators both online and in our store. Our publishing, graphic design, and digital content creating will be done under the Label MGR or McNabbs Game Resources in an attempt to create a somewhat clear distinction between our store front and our publishing/manufacturing firm.
Over at CreatureAWeek.com our weekly creature feature has been a fun project for us all, and has offered opportunities for local artists as well as some veterans in the hobby to showcase their abilities. Unfortunately due to the high operating costs and the time required (since it is a labor of love and generates very low revenue) will be changed to a subscription based service. The prices will be for 1 year subscriptions and will include 52 ecologies which will all be made available with stats compatible with Morgalad Fantasy RPG, Pathfinder and 5E by years end. After the fiscal year has closed we will make that years ecologies available for purchase on a creature by creature basis. That being said the best way to see new creatures as they are released is to purchase the yearly subscription which is actually half the cost as if you were to purchase the ecologies individually.
Morgalad Fantasy RPG
We realized our first fantasy RPG, Morgalad, thanks to a successfully funded Kickstarter that made it’s rounds in late 2014- early 2015. Since then we have made the starter book available for free to download via www.morgalad.com and a core rulebook available for purchase via the same site, drivethrurpg, tabletop library, Amazon, Kindle, Noble Knight, and other platforms. This year I am happy to announce the release of our first major expansion. This summer will be the release of our first in a 3 part adventure series titled, “The Scouts of Whitefall”. All three adventures will be released as separate modules in both print and PDF format, also a new expansion will be released to accompany those adventures titled “The Heroes of Lore”. Heroes of Lore will include 4 new professions, 25 more levels to expand upon the core levels, 50+ unique new abilities, and 30+ new creatures as well as the introduction of creature templates (ie half-breeds, werewolves, etc.)
Orc Office Party
In 2016 we were fortunate enough to experience our second fully funded Kickstarter project, Orc Office Party. Orc Office Party is a simple turn by turn elimination game where players attempt to slack off without being fired. We had some trouble with shipping as the month immediately following our funding prices at the USPS increased and rather than charge our backers an additional cost we had to make the decision to delay shipment and cover the costs ourselves. This was no easy task as we make very little to no profit off our crowdfunded games and make them merely for the joy of creating new games for our community. We encountered further logistics problems when current political endeavors caused conflict or changes with customs to certain countries but after much trial and error, I am proud to announce that all of our international and domestic orders have been shipped and are on the way to their respective owners.
Yet again I want to take this time to thank all of our supporters wether you have supported us through McNabb Games, through our various Kickstarter projects, or through creature a week and our other content distribution channels. Thank you for helping us grow. I hope to someday soon make this my full time job so that I can tailor our company and its many outlets to fit the needs of this amazing gaming community that has welcomed us with open arms.
Thank you ~John R.L. McNabb
