Latest Updates from Our Project:

August Update!
14 days ago – Mon, Aug 07, 2017 at 09:58:00 PM

Beloved cabal,

Where does the time go? We are fast approaching Gen Con, which celebrates 50 years this year. You can expect to find Atlas Games and Unknown Armies at the show, booth number 1401 in the dealer hall. Not only is the Deluxe Set and loose copies of Books One, Two, and Three on our Gen Con supply list, but renowned designer Greg Stolze is running sessions at the show. If you're one of those fine attendees, do please let us know how it goes.

Update Bullet List

  • Books Four and Five approach the layout stage and are on target for delivery to you in October. That's our current planned delivery window, pending any more hurdles. We're looking forward to having them in your feverish, grasping virtual hands.
  • The Campaign Starter Kits are coming together in production as well, and should begin a staggered delivery some time after Books Four and Five.
  • We're moving ahead on the tutorial videos, which are being scripted this summer for filming later in the year.
  • The PDF reference tools should manifest in the late fall, as they're depending on Books Four and Five as well.

That's it from this update. We hope you enjoy the rest of August no matter where you are or what the weather is like!

Ascending now,

This time with a link!

In the version of the universe that was yesterday, there was a link attached to the big ENNIES AWARDS logo that would have taken all of you delightful people to the Ennies awards voting page.

Alas, moments after I posted it, the universe rebooted as it is known to do, and now that link doesn't exist. So here's the link. We suggest you visit the voting page before the Invisible Clergy fills up again to 333 and we lose even this one.

That's the link, right there. We thank you in advance for your consideration and hope to see many of you at the 50th Gen Con this year in Indianapolis!

ENnie Awards and Updates!

Beloved cabal,

The Ennie Awards at GenCon 2017

We are tremendously proud to have been given two nominations in this year's slate of ENnie awards: Best Production Values and Best Writing, both for the Unknown Armies Deluxe Set. The voting is now open and we would, of course, be thrilled to have your vote for UA3 in these two categories. Click on the big logo below to do that!

Production Update

We're still hard at work on Book Four and Book Five, as well as the Campaign Starter Kits. We're hoping to get these into your digital downloads folders before the fall winds come blowing into Saint Paul. The CSKs are going to end up being staggered releases, rather than all at once, because of the need to work on each of them more or less one at a time. We can't wait for you to see all of this great new content.

Tell me have you seen the Yellow Sign?

Beloved cabal,

Here's where we are at with Unknown Armies production!

Book Four and Book Five

These delightful volumes have come a fair way since we shared them with you, in that we've gone through and incorporated a lot of suggested fixes, dealt with some problems, and they're in the final editing stages. I would love to tell you that they're ready to go out this month, but that's not true, so I won't. However, they are still on track for release in the next couple months, so that's something to look forward to.

Campaign Starter Kits

Wow, what a tremendous amount of feedback we got on these things. So much so that, together with a full-on Stolze developer pass, I've been busily going through each of the seven kits with an eye to making them even more helpful and even more fun. Rather than release them all at once, we'll stagger their release out as they are completed, but I foresee these being distributed to you all before the year is out.


Have you seen what's already available at the Statosphere? There's a lot of decidedly messed-up content being posted and we're hoping it continues to grow! If you're still not sure about contributing to the Statosphere, take a look and see what others have done, For only a few dollars, some of these products are packed with ideas and horrors to inspire and delight.

The Yellow King RPG Kickstarter

Speaking of inspired horror...

As a fan of sophisticated, disturbing horror RPGs packaged in beautiful slipcases that double as GM screens (hmmm…) we thought you might want to hear about the latest from friend-of-Atlas Robin D. Laws.

The campaign for The Yellow King Roleplaying Game has already blasted through four realities' worth of stretch goals. Swoop in and reap the benefits!

Until next time....

Stay awake. Go to sleep. Sow the wind. Reap the whirlwind.

The Statosphere has been Opened!

Beloved, the rituals are finally complete.

Begun during the Kickstarter campaign with a backer stretch goal, we are thrilled to announce that the partnership with OneBookShelf to launch a creator community for third-party Unknown Armies content is now actualized.

To explore this new venture and see what's already available, simply follow this link. We've recruited two adepts already for the opening, Tim Dedopulos and WJ MacGuffin, and you can see their first efforts on the site. I hope you consider adding these to your collection and giving this new publishing opportunity a go for yourself!

All the best,
--Cam and the UA3 production crew
