Interesting. How much did that run you, if you don't mind me asking?

A b&w print with spiral binding was just under $20 US with taxes.

Judge Dredd The Mega City One Archives Volume 1 The Justice Department and WH3E's The Adventurers Toolkit were waiting on me when I got home from Ohio.

Rigon,

I have been thinking of doing the same thing. Did you also have them print the covers? Did they have you sign anything?

I have dug out all of my old Greyhawk stuff to prepare and run my group through the rest of Bowbe's Haunted Highlands, which I have located in the southern Shield Lands. Thus, a new Greyhawk campaign begins (C&C style). I have even dusted off the old White Plume Mountain module just in case they wonder up that way.

Tree, I had the covers printed but in b&w also and no I didn't have to sign anything. Not sure if I had to, but then again, I didn't ask.

Very cool. Be sure to share your experiences in "The Crusades" forums here!

The new cover is just plain awesome! I'm probably going to go ahead and pick up a couple of hardbacks at Lulu in the next few weeks. One for me, and one for my son for when he gets between the ages of 5 and 7. Mythmere deserves a serious round of applause or putting this baby together.

Dark Heresy, The Radical's Handbook, and Creatures Anathema. All of these books part of the Dark Heresy (Warhammer 40K RPG) line from Fantasy Flight Games. Simply the best.

I just flipped through it over the weekend and liked it a lot. I'm going to read through it in depth and play around with it the next couple of days. I'll let you know!

Dragon Age RPG boxed set. Thanks to BD, I couldn't resist getting it, and must say he speaks the TRUTH. Can't wait to run this.

I don't have very deep familiarity with either the comic or the rpg, but from first glance I think you could run a Harvesters game with the same feel/flavor very easily. Just with more options- more races and more classes. Though I guess if you wanted to go with just mice and just rangers or knights you could very closely recreate the Mouse Guard game (minus the turn mechanics).
