CAH Goings-On

There is a lot of great stuff going on in the wacky world of Cartoon Action Hour these days!  We've all been working hard to keep the momentum of the hardcopy book going.

Metal Wars
Work on the official Transbots Series Book has gotten underway.  We're all very excited about this book and we feel it's going to be an extremely useful sourcebook for CAH fans.  Not only will it contain all the stuff you'd expect to see in a Series Book (character write-ups, background, a mini-comic and so on), it will also feature a more elaborate version of the Giant Transforming Robot rules (with plenty of examples).

Darkness Unleashed
Darkness Unleashed is entering the production phase now.  The last of the artwork is coming in and Kevin Perinne (who did a lot of work for Wizkids) is handling the layout for what promises to be a highly visual book.  Everything is on schedule, thankfully.

After These Messages issue 1
Conversely, the premiere issue of After These Messages is a bit behind schedule.  Okay, quite a bit behind schedule.  But rest assured, Jared Brown has finished the preliminary layout and it's being sent to us as we speak.  With any luck, it will be available in a week or so.  Fortunately, it's going to be worth the wait, as it has turned out larger than we had originally figured -- well over 30 pages, in fact.

Cartoon Action Network
This is the working title for a project we're all very primed about.  Tentatively set to hit the stores in Fall 2003, Cartoon Action Network will be one part player's guide and one part GM's guide!  Best of all, it will feature the work of Mr. Sam Chupp of White Wolf fame!  He's handling the GM section and it's going to be an extraordinary section indeed!

I'm sure you're wanting to know what's going to be in this book.  And while I don't want to spoil all the surprises, I'll let a few tidbits leak out to satiate your appetite -- new SA modifiers, optional uses for Stunt Points, more combat options, rules for chases, advice for running post-modern series and so much more.  Cartoon Action Network will be the ultimate CAH companion!

Project: Skull Gulch
The second issue of After These Messages will feature the ready-to-run series guide for the popular CAH series, Outlaws of Skull Gulch.   Furthermore, there will be two other Skull Gulch articles within that issue:  "Shootin' Irons and Other Goodies" (a slew of weapons and gear) and "Wanted Dead or Alive" (stats for some of the most notorious polecats in the New West).

Each subsequent issue will feature several more articles for the Outlaws of Skull Gulch.  The advantage to this will be a constantly evolving series.  

We view Outlaws of Skull Gulch as an interactive series, where the fans can contribute by writing articles for it.  Furthermore, we are working on "Outlaws of Skull Gulch: the Movie", a full-length episode that will be played at various conventions.  After a yet-to-be-determined number of events, we will compile the results and use them to shape Season Two.  Will certain characters die?  Will Governor Plaxx tighten his despotic grip?  Will the outlaws finally free the New West from his rule?  Only you can decide!
