What's a Thesaurus without a Dictionary?

When we first conceived the Storyteller's Thesaurus it wasn't with just one book in mind. There was always a companion book, the Storyteller's Dictionary. Both books together were conceptualized to help the writer or game designer reference the language they need, quickly and easily.

Now that the ST is complete and shipped, it's time to begin work on the Dictionary and to do this, we've moved the project to Kickstarter, to get this ball rolling.

Like the Thesaurus, the Storyteller's Dictionary is specifically designed for writers, teachers, game designers, students and anyone who enjoys the creative output of fantasy, science fiction or horror tales! Broken up by subject matter, the Dictionary allows the end user quick reference material for the many challenges of writing and designing. From herbs to castles, from nebulae to pole arms, the Dictionary is a must have.

No Birds at Sunup

It's cold enough here that the birds are sleeping in late... well, except one young dove that enjoys sitting in the bird feeder while she eats. All this wintery weather reminds us of the importance of fire, so take note of Tom Hank's excitement when he finally manages it in Castaway, today's movie moment.

In the meantime we need to gear up for Adventure! We are re-releasing a TLG classic: Towers of Adventure! This originally came out as a box set, but it sold out some years back. We've revised it into one compact book and you can scoop it up even now.

To celebrate its return to the fold we're launching a limited sale on ALL C&C adventures! For the week scoop up your favorite adventure at 50% off!!! From the class A1 Assault on Blacktooth Ridge to the more modern Giant's Wrath. Get em all!! Simply use the code: ADV50 at checkout!


Before the Moot!

Friday last you should have received a copy of the Amazing Adventures Manual of Monsters. This is a beta version, like all our first wave digital material, so please have a gander at it and let us know if we missed anything. We are now awaiting the Companion and the Temple of the Red God to wrap up this project.

We've had a great deal of snow down here in the Natural State (that's Arkansas for those not in know) and we are just now digging ourselves out from under it. Its caused a bit of interruption in the work flow, so once we get our heads screwed back on we'll give you a round of updates about this, that and the other.

I do know that my character, Ferenc, was brutally slain on night one of TrollMoot 3! It was horrid... though lots of fun. Something like the first guy in the helmet...

Swords on the Rooftop

The most modern movie adaptation of the Three Musketeers starred Milla Jovovich and some other people, its a crazy wild ride, but fun to watch. You can see a little sword play in today's movie clip. Also look for a new crossword later this week, we completely forgot about that new feature for the site.

Victorious or what we like to call simply, Vicky. It's coming to a Kickstarter near you, soon. So be on the lookout and get ready to plunge into the steampunk milieu Siege Engine style. We may end up bundling a revised Tainted Lands and a Star Siege 2nd Edition (this one will be a new edition as it will alter the rules from the first, and we may change the name) in with Vicky as well.

This week look to the Darkenfold and part 2 of Harvest of Oaths for those who backed the Aihrde Kickstarter. And news from the CKG: the editor has asked for two more weeks and we've given him the extra time, its important to us to bring the CKG into line with the other two books.

Here's a little cosmos from the world of Aihrde . . .
