Bluffside Update!!!

Hey guys just wanted you to know we are all digging in and revamping Bluffside to be a classic city for your C&C campaign.

Here is some updates from one of the authors Warren Bailey:

Still reworking The Wizard District to incorporate C&C rules for magic use. Got a plan and finalizing it so it should be good to go soon. New POI"s are: The Boarding House (a large living area for newbies in the district), Mouse's General Merchandise (a general store that sells a little bit of everything), Alton's Alterations and Clothing (a place to have clothes made or altered), Hats & More (a head wear shop that's a front for a small smuggling ring) & a small farmer's market/shop that sells exotic fruits/vegetables.

Thanks for reading.

We are talking to Jason Walton about the new cover on this bad boy. He has a few projects in hand to tackle first, but we should be on it around Gencon time frame.

Sounds fantastic, Hal! And I really like Jason's work, so it sounds like it's going to be totally sweet. At least in my opinion. :P

I never saw this back in the day, but I remember Stephen talking about it awhile back. Sounds cool, and I hope it's available before October. Would love to sell this at the Troll booth during Archon. Can't wait to see it.

Wait - I think I saw a movie or TV show about this. Isn't this Bluffside the Vampire Slayer?

There. THAT'S the proper response to a really bad pun! Bennett Cerf stated that the goal of the pun is to reach such a level of wretchedness as to cause people to flee, holding their noses and screaming "PEEEEEYUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU!!!"

We brought in two more writers and with the passion and experience in C&C they bring, I am nothing short of confidant on how great this book will be. I am not giving out names yet since I have not heard from them if they want to be known.
I am shooting for a finished draft by 11/1, have playtesting till mid-January, then send it off to the trolls.
That is your update folks!

For those unfamiliar here is a review. Even mentions that Bluffside could easily be dropped into Erde with very little work.

This is going to be a huge setting book for C&C. In fact, it will be the largest setting for C&C (in page count) until the updated Code of Aihrde is released. I'm very much looking forward to see the finished product.

I am a little worried at how big it is, I hope they have a good layout person :o

If Peter Bradley is going to be doing the layout on this, your worries should be less. He's good. Now, I just hope TLG goes for the bigger page count! We need ALL that material in there!
