[Q&A] Ben Baker (Melting Point Publishing)
Click on the above link to read the recent interview i had with Dan over at the Hardboiled GMshoe.
He runs a really great community site that i urge you to check out.
He also interviews various figures from the gaming industry every few days.
If you’re into roleplaying, GMing and/or writing games then you really need to be a part of this vibrant community.

One of the great things about the Kickstarter is that it’s allowed me to meet other publishers in the Savage Worlds community.
A particularly enjoyable setting is Devil’s Run RPG by Red Scar.
Take a look at them – they’ve created a fun filled post-apocalyptic adventure-filled setting based on the popular board game of the same name.
Our first Kickstarter is growing well, we are currently at 42% of our funding goal.
I recently spoke to Dan of Gumshoe GM fame, and I’ve another interview arranged for 2 days’ time – so watch out for some links to those in the coming days.
Our first ever Kickstarter has been active for a few days now and we are already 27% of the way toward hitting our funding target!
Don’t forget to spread the word about us to help us unlock more stretch goals.
You can find our Kickstarter here:
It’s been an exciting few weeks for us here at Melting Point Publishing.
The culmination of which is that our first ever Kickstarter just went live – check it out here.
It’s a great opportunity to pick up our already published adventure, Still Life and Death, at a HUGE discount.
But theres more – everyone who pledges at the New Adventures Bundle level will receive a copy of every book we unlock during the Kickstarter – for only £10!
That means it’s in the interest of every backer to help spread the word about our Kickstarter – after all, the more stretch goals we hit, the more books you receive for the same fantastic price.

Our 8 PCs ready for use in Still Life and Death or any other Savage Worlds adventure is ready for download.
It’s a ‘pay what you like’ product on DriveThruRPG, meaning you can download it for free if you want.

We’re helping out those Games Masters in a rush with a product that should be ready in the next couple of weeks.
One of our soon to be released adventures is set in a fantasy world of intrigue, magic, and warfare – all you need is to add characters, and off you go.
But what about Games Masters who haven’t the time to pregen characters, or don’t want to spend a session with everyone arguing over who’s going to be the healer?
To help get you all playing as soon as possible, we will be releasing a huge array of eighteen (!) characters to choose from as playable characters.
Each will come with their own fully written character sheet, including all stats and even a cheat sheet section for how to use their abilities.
Each also comes with a section describing their background, their appearance, and how to roleplay them. Each is rounded off with an accompanying picture.
The characters range from a human barbarian, to multiple types of wizard, and from dour dwarfs to acrobatic elves. There’s even two lizard men, a Rakashan, a half-orc and two half-folk!
You’re free to use them in any campaign you like, but you might get a few odd looks if you play a wizened wizard wondering around a deep space ice hauler!
Expect to see our first product available in the store, and other well known sites, in the very near future.
Here is the front cover!
We had a great time at the UK Games Expo!
If you’re visiting this site in the next couple of days or weeks then dollars-to-doughnuts you heard about us via one of the fliers we distributed around the expo.
Thank you for taking the time to check us out, our product range is going live any day now, and as a thank you we will be offering it at an introductory discount – sign up to The Melting Point to be kept up to date on when this happens so you can make the most of this time sensitive offer.
I hope we meet you all again at next year’s expo – and you can expect us to have a larger presence next time 🙂
