It's high time TLG revisited the horror genre, or at least an apocalyptic game. We had our brief foray into horror with Tainted Lands, which was fun, but short-lived and unsupported. The horror genre is much maligned because, like fantasy, there is so much bad horror material out there, both in gaming and in film and tv. But, when it's done right, it is done right and it leaves an echo in the mind.
Busy year, as we wrap up the Gaxmoor Kickstarter...thank you everyone for supporting and pledging, it ended with a crazy bang...and plunge on into finishing the CKG and other projects we are looking forward to all manner of stuff: Brimstone, Abyss Walker, Adventurers Backpack and so on.
Stay with us friends. It's only just getting good!
So here is the schedule of events. All final edits go in tomorrow. A copy will be sent to Steve Ege for proofing over the weekend. All KS backers will receive this copy as well. This is out last chance to find mistakes, so if you find something, please let us know and we'll get it fixed. Once it goes to the printers, we will not make any changes to the book until the 3rd printing.
Early next week, or midweek at the latest, the Castle Keepers Guide goes to the printers.
All too much other news. Players Guide to Aihrde wraps up in the next week. Its at edting. Harvest of Oaths should have a new release tomorrow, but might be trumped by CKG work. Amazing Adventures Companion is in layout. Once it is finished all three of those books will go to press.
And lastly, the Lost City of Gaxmoor begins its final week over at KS!
In the meantime, be sure to check out the Lost City of Gaxmoor on Kickstarter. We've already hit the goal to retool this sucker and and staring down the hall at a secret door. No doubt filled with all manner of goodies.
In Aihrde news, Steve is looking at an overhaul of the maps of the Mortality of Green. They are all over the place in style and rendition. First up is the 'Drew's Hollow", the tavern and Inn that lies just north of the Mistbane and south of the Lake of Nunt (for Harvest of Oaths Part 4). That goes to the mappers today. But area maps as well.
Now kick off your week with Jaguar Paw's escape from the movie Apocalypto! A fantastic film.
A quick note for the weekend. Don't miss out on the Lost City of Gaxmoor for Castles & Crusades on Kickstarter. Be sure to have a look and pledge or spread the word.
As we work on the Players Guide to Aihrde (hammering out the racial classes now), it seems a good time to introduce an new artist that has joined us here in the Troll Dens. Zoe DeVos is a young lady introduced to the Troll Lord at Gencon by Tom Tullis of Fat Dragon Games. Her sketch book was amazing and he hired her on the spot.
Here, from the Codex, is her rendition of the Val Eahrakun Let, the Hart, the god of hope and new beginnings, consort of Tefnut. Enjoy! It seems a fitting subject and a fitting piece for the occasion!
