We here at Daemoneye Publishing would like to thank the officers of the Davis Roleplaying Activities and Gaming Organizational Network (DRAGON) club at the University of California, Davis for allowing us to act as unofficial sponsors of DRAGON New Member Night 2016. Not only did we have a great time but turnout for the event was extraordinary. Thank you all for attending.

News Update 12-12-2015 - Pre-Generic Winter Solstice Related Holiday Sale 2015

It's that time of year again!

All Daemoneye Publishing products purchased through Lulu are 10% off until the 25th of December. Furthermore, the minimum contributions necessary to receive a PDF copy of The Lycanthrope Club: Book I, The Lycanthrope Club: Book II and the Universal Decay: Dead Stars Rule Book are reduced to 1.00 USD, 2.00 USD, and 3.00 USD, respectively. This will also be in effect until the 25th.

News Update 08-01-2015 - The Universal Decay: Dead Stars Rule Book is now available in PDF!

Because of the success of our contributor reward model with The Lycanthrope Club we've decided to make the full PDF of the Universal Decay: Dead Stars Rule Book (DSRB) available to those who contribute at least 5.00 USD to the project. What do you get in return? Over 360 pages of nerdcore goodness. There's a detailed, modular technology system that let's you design everything from spears to starships, multiple alien races and rules for creating your own, a space travel and star system creation guide based on real physics, pages and pages of original artwork, rules on incorporating psionics, magic, superpowers and other extraordinary elements into you game...I could go on and on.

As a special bonus, until the 8th of August 2015 those who contribute at least 5.00 USD to the Universal Decay: Dead Stars project will ALSO receive a PDF of the full-color edition of The Lycanthrope Club: Book II That's right. Five measly dollars gets you a complete roleplaying game system AND the full-color edition of the second novel in The Lycanthrope Club series.

News Update 07-05-2015 - The Lycanthrope Club: Book II now available!

The long anticipated second installment of The Lycanthrope Club series is finally available! Check it out!

Because the book has been delayed so long (sorry!) we've decided to make digital versions of The Lycanthrope Club: Book II available immediately. You can receive a PDF copy of the full color edition by contributing at least 3.00 USD to project via PayPal. This version of the book will include all the color illustrations, production sketches and two exclusive bonus short stories - First Night, and A Nurse in Wolf's Clothing parts I and II. A free for download PDF edition featuring the main story and all of the illustrations in greyscale will be available approximately one week from now.

Print copies - both full color and black and white - will be available sometime over the next month. Owing to the proofing and reviewing process we cannot say for certain when they'll be done. Once they are up on Lulu they should be available on Amazon a month or so later. Sorry, but preparing books for general distribution takes time.

The art was done by Leonardo "Lobo Leo" A. Vidal Fernandez, Jean Harrell and Dirk I. Tiede. The cover art was drawn by Ashley Vanstone.

Thanks for all your support!

Happy New Year!

Daemoneye Publishing is looking for new blood! One of our goals for 2014 is to expand our product library and network of freelance artists and writers, so if you are or know someone who might be interested in joining our creative team, contact us.

Please note we are not looking for employees. What we want are talented, reliable individuals interested in contributing to our Universal Decay table-top RPG system (link) and its various settings – Dead Stars, Dragonfire, Cape and Hammer – on a commission and/or royalty basis. We’d also welcome those who want to collaborate to develop their own ideas, settings or stories, possibly using our Universal Decay game engine, possibly not. If you have a cool concept and want to collaborate on, email us and pitch it!

Last, we here at Daemoneye Publishing are considering breaking into computer game development. Very ambitious, I know, but if we can assemble the required resources and talent I think it’s worth a shot. Nothing big – maybe an Android platform game, something accessible and easy to develop for. We already have several programmers but what we really need are artists – 2D artists, 3D artists, animators, etc. This is a long term goal and we certainly aren’t expecting professional or even hobbyist digital artists to join our team just for the fun of it, but I think it’s worthwhile to put some feelers out and see if we can make any new contacts for when the time comes. Again, email us if you are or know anyone who might be interested.

That is all.

News Update 03-29-2012 - Looking for editors for the DSRB

Daemoneye Publishing needs volunteer editors for the Dead Stars Rulebook

For those of you not familiar with Universal Decay: Dead Stars, it's a science-fiction horror roleplaying game based on the d20 system, and Daemoneye Publishing's flagship product. We need people relatively unfamiliar with the Universal Decay system (and d20 in general) to read through the main rule book, checking for spelling and grammatical errors, confusing language, overt rule contradictions or inconsistencies and so on. Fair warning: it's a massive tome, but even a partial edit would be helpful. We can't offer applicants anything other than editor credit and an advance digital copy of the finished book. If interested contact or

News Update 03-21-2012 - Daemoneye Forum is Live!

Greetings newcomers!

The Daemoneye Publishing forum is up and running! You can access it using the link above or just click here There still may be some kinks to work out, so if you experience any trouble please contact contact the forum admin.

As you may know, many of our products are free for download. However, that doesn't mean they don't cost anything to develop! In addition to many, MANY hours spent writing and playtesting, much of the art you see in our books is commissioned, which can cost quite a bit. If you like a particular book or project and want to support it, send a couple bucks our way by clicking on the "support" button next to the product. You won't receive anything besides the knowledge you helped Daemoneye Publishing continue to bring you the stuff you love.

Finally, another artist has been found to do the illustrations for The Lycanthrope Club: Book I - Dirk I. Tiede, illustrator and author of the webcomic Paradigm Shift. We look foward to working with Mr. Tiede.
