I have been slacking on updating the site, as we do, mostly just due to lack of any time or motivation to be working on Lostorum stuff. Digging back in now after a fantastic weekend at Archon at the Gateway Convention Center.
Collective Unconcscious Productions ran a table selling all sorts of fun, steampunk-y gadgets and costume props for what I am hoping was a reasonable price for some fun toys and accessories. Over the coming weeks I’ll be adding a page for the crafting side of all this and posting some pics of sold products as well as new stuff as we build it.
We wanted to personally thank the Staff and Volunteers who worked Archon to make this all possible, and a huge thanks to everyone who stopped by to oggle (or occasionally even buy!) our random stuff.
“Turning Junk into Punk” is the idea, and I wasn’t sure it would work, but it so very much did and we sincerely appreciate it.
Thanks to everyone for making this a great Archon and a great first-time event for Collective Unconscious Productions.
Don’t worry, we’ll have a shorter name for this next year – this site is kind of a clearing house for all of my creative endeavors.Read More
The blog will update you on every aspect of the Lostorum universe. This include role-playing books, games, electronic and .pdf documents, artwork, maps, and short stories, as well as samples from upcoming products. You can participate in the blog as well. Show us artwork depicting your vision of the Lostorum setting and characters. If it meets our standards, we will purchase it from you and display it on the blog for everyone to see.Read More
This will be the first in our series of Lostorum books. It establishes the Lostorum campaign setting, covering the major races, regions, and features of the setting and world; its people and history. This book will cover the basic information that players and gamemasters will need to play in the Lostorum setting.
This is a work in progress, as of this writing we have over one hundred pages of the base setting book completed. We will shortly begin to commission artwork – maps and character art, and artwork describing the unique creatures and settings of LostorumRead More
Our first short story is up! Come learn about the Airships of Lostorum, the Great War, and check out the illustration by Devin Night!
(I cannot, for the moment, figure out how to get the link to display properly. Have tried every iteration of “a href” I can think of, but the link will simply not display AT ALL if I try to use target / title tags…
So here is the link to the page – I’ll get the links all working correctly ASAP.)
Steampunk Fantasy in a Savage World
Get involved in a setting that melds the magic and monsters of fantasy role playing with the slick retro-high-tech gadgets of steampunk. Collective Unconscious Productions is hard at work producing our first publications – the Lostorum Campaign Setting – Age of Aether core setting book, and the first novel, which tells the story of the birth of Lostorum’s first democratic nation, the Commonalities of Oordmar.Read More
New site is up and running! I want to give special thanks to Custom A. Designs for the absolutely fantastic redesign. So much better than the old site. Not that many saw it
So, what are we doing here?
Well, I’m working, and squeezing in what writing and crafting and such as possible. This site, at the moment, is just a dream of a dream, but work is progressing.
We have some new artwork for Lostorum to post soon – Devin Night once again came through, and has given life to the Airships of Lostorum. I will also be “publishing” the first of my short stories here Soon(TM).
In other news, we (myself and my good friend) will be running a table at Archon this year, selling and showcasing a variety of our craft and cosplay work. Nearly every weekend we are crafting new stuff –
hats, goggles, jetpacks, and toy guns made awesome thus far, with more to come. I’ll be setting up a page to showcase those here, again, “Soon(TM)”
If you happen across the site, and like Steampunk, like to Cosplay… I’d love to hear from you! We have some very neat ideas and we will need a lot of talented writers, artists, designers, cosplayers, or
creative sorts of all types.
Welcome to Lostorum, a unique fantasy setting for tabletop roleplaying games and upcoming works of fantasy fiction. While all has been done before, in some fashion, it is my hope that you find within these pages something different, and unique enough to move beyond the typical tropes of Fantasy Role-Playing.
Lostorum is a savage world in the midst of a burgeoning industrial revolution, where magic is becoming more and more rare, but still affects the lives of even the simplest folk. Wizards, sorcerers, and artificers – secretive and mysterious all – fight alongside musketeers and gunslingers from atop reptilian mounts or mechanical war machines. Men, and the beastly races, delve into the buried secrets of an ancient past, and alternately work together to tame, or compete for the possession of, primordial lands. Industrialized cities house millions of souls, rails are laid for steam trains, and airships powered by Aether prowl the skies, or bombard their enemies with cannons and fire. It is a world of War, and the intrigues of wealthy entrepreneurs and power-hungry empires; of mad scientists and genius inventors.Read More
