Getting into Freelance Game Design

First – this came in the mail the other day, and it is awesome. Go buy one!

Watch this – around 38:00 or so – to see how you do it, apparently.

While I do talk really fast, I’ve never even considered myself ‘high-energy’! 

I do have a lot of insight on how to get into this, and if you haven’t been reading Meta Thursdays, now is a good time to think about doing so.

Afterward, if you’ve got any specific questions, please ask me!

I’m a big fan of collaboration and not such a shark, so any and all queries are welcome. Send them along to mike.myler.adventures (at), just holler at me on facebook (or twitter)!

Thanks for stopping by my website. Tell your friends about me, it or the AaWBlog! ^_^




Publisher Stampede!

Several new members are joining the increasingly large cast of folks that I’m working with:

Amora Games already has the first draft of A Fisherman’s Bounty.

Tricky Owlbear Publishing is due The King’s Trail.

Stormbunny Studios just worked out a deal for Frigid Reflections, set in their Rhune: Dawn of Twilight campaign setting.

I’m working out a deal on an incredible adventure path with my boys at and I sent out the contract this morning for another upcoming tome with them (I won’t say what it is, but I will say where it is – the Underworld of Aventyr.)

While all of these are extremely cool and I encourage you to follow their progress, the thing I am most excited about (well, aside from that adventure path, maybe) is the Dragon Tiger Ox: Pathfinder Wuxia Kickstarter by Little Red Goblin Games.

I’ve seen the artwork (holy f#&~%@^ s#@%!!), I’ve looked around at what they’re putting together and moreover, I talked them into including me as a stretch goal. I’ll be writing up Legendary Weapons, one of which will be posted here next week so you can see what it is I’ll be bringing to that project.


On top of that, reviews for The Mysterious Peaks of Baranthar are starting to come in, and they are excellent. $4 to horrify and shock your players – go get it.
We can only imagine what the remainder of this month has in store; stay tuned to see the Spear of Tempest Legendary Weapon next week!

The Mysterious Peaks of Baranthar and an Open Call for Artists!

The latest module in the Grualroth’s Rot adventure series, The Mysterious Peaks of Baranthar, is now available for $4 on, and the d20pfsrdstore! The enigma behind this leg of the journey is guaranteed to shock and horrify your PCs once they reach the distant summit of the notorious, snow-swept mountain range!


I’m also excited to announce an Open Call for artists. If you’ve got the chops for illustrating the bizarre and beautiful, send me to your portfolio or contact me with some sample images. You will be responsible for the cover, drawing landscapes, bestiary entries and action scenes (some black and white, some color).

The chosen artist will be privy to 33% of all profits from the venture and will be responsible for the vast majority (all save two images) of Bandit King Grogth Bloodfang, the next module in the Grualroth’s Rot adventure series (and possibly additional work on subsequent products)!
