Bluffside Update!!!

Post by Hal G »

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.

Really looking forward to this, Hal.
Since its 20,000 I suggest "Captain Nemo" as his title. Beyond the obvious connection, he is one who sails on his own terms and ignores those he doesn't agree with...confident in his journey and goals.

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.

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!
