Sinopa Publishing in 2019

Cover for 47 Furious Tails, Issue One
Artist : Alexia Veldhuisen

This year will see the beginning of Sinopa Publishing's third year in operation.  So far 2019 has treated us very well, and seen the successful crowdfunding of our first comic book!  47 Furious Tails, Issue One was funded through the support of 172 generous backers.  You can check out the campaign page HERE.

This year will see many new and exciting projects as we continue to develop our children's books, comic books and several different role playing game titles.  W.S. Quinton continues to release material through his page on Drip, with all original art work each and every month.  You can check out that page (as well as subscribe for content) HERE.

What's coming this year:

47 Furious Tails, Issue One ~ released to KickStarter backers in May 2019!  If you missed the KickStarter campaign, don't worry.  We'll be making the book available for digital download as well as making a limited number of print copies for sale.  As with all projects, KickStarter backers will have their books shipped before we make them available elsewhere.  Art by: Alexia Veldhuisen

Sinopa Assemble! ~ This eagerly anticipated anthology features seven short comic stories packed into one 56 page release.  This project will be crowdfunded in the coming months, so don't miss your chance to get your copy through the campaign (signed by all contributing artists/writers).  Campaign proceeds will fund the print run, backer fulfillment and will produce copies for the contributors as well as covering production costs (such as ISBN and Bar codes, paying our editor, etc.).


Tarot Adventures, Book Three:  Death comes to Glenfallow ~

No one ever said that being a hero would be easy!

Released under the Open Game License published in the System Reference Document 5.1 (SRD5.1) this adventure is designed for use with the world's most popular tabletop role playing game.   A powerful foe has set her sights upon Glenfallow.  Now death walks the land and horrors confront your heroes at every turn.  Can you survive and save the day when Death comes to Glenfallow?

Designed to be a deadly to difficult adventure for characters of third to sixth level.

Second Post: What we've done and what we're doing

Happy New Year, 2018!

This year promises a lot of new projects from us.

Sinopa Publishing is still a young company, but we've got a lot of cool ideas, have access to very talented artists, and have finished 2017 with two adventures published.

A quick synopsis of projects for 2018:

Tarot Adventures, Book Two:  Comet over Echo Rock

Funded through KickStarter and containing all original art, this second installment in the Tarot Adventures opens a number of possibilities for player characters.  Deadly danger and unique reward opportunities await within this daring adventure.
Cover Art by: Brian Lee

The next installment of the Tarot Series was fully funded through Kickstarter on February 10th!!  Backer rewards should ship out in (or before) April of 2018.

This adventure is designed for characters of 2nd through 4th level and is intended to be a difficult to deadly level challenge.

Luther's Revenge (Postponed until 2019)
The vampire Luther makes his debut in print as he seeks revenge for the destruction of his vampire bride.  This book brings a host of encounters, story lead-ins, plot hooks, and the final show down with a powerful vampire.  Written for higher level player characters, this book brings a series of challenges to your table, designed to be incorporated over several play sessions.  Art for this book will be commissioned upon success of the crowdfunding effort, with art created by talented professionals.  This book will contain more of the original art Sinopa Publishing LLC is rapidly becoming known for.


***********************
47 Furious Tails, Issue One
The flagship comic book launch of Sinopa Publishing LLC, with amazing art by Kubert School Alumnus, Alexia Veldhuisen.  This comic book will see a crowdfunding campaign launched in January of 2019.  This telling of the Ako incident uses anthropomorphic animal characters such as samurai foxes, squirrels, and rabbits.  Backers will have amazing opportunities for unique rewards.

**********************************
Tarot Adventures, Books Three: Death comes to Glenfallow
In development and packed with features to provide a thoroughly immersive experience.  This project will see its art funded through KickStarter as well and will feature a newly illustrated regional map.  We will be continuing to develop the Tarot Adventures, releasing the series of Twenty-two (22) adventures through the course of the story that unfolds.

Experience the adventure as the tapestry of fate is woven anew in this epic series of adventures.

**********************************

Other projects in development include children's books, comic books, our original role-playing game title (still in development, we want it to be incredible), and a card game.  It is possible some of these projects may see release in 2018, while others will be seeing a 2019 release.  Follow Sinopa Publishing LLC on Facebook to keep in touch with our coming releases.


Re-opening the Sinopa Publishing LLC Merchandise store ~ We have developed a small catalog of merchandise which is available through Society6.

We continue to research suppliers of quality merchandise to include in the store.  The store was briefly open in 2017, under a different vendor, but quality problems led to it being closed while quality problems were addressed.  We intend to include art prints, posters, clothing, and other interesting items for your enjoyment.  Product development will mirror Sinopa Publishing LLC titles.

Thank you for making 2017 a fantastic first year.  We look forward to bringing cool things to the world this year and hope you'll enjoy them.
