That’s been the word of the day all week for me.
I can’t say what exactly I’m doing for Fantasy Flight Games or Frog God Games, but my input in the former has been well received and playtesting for the latter was awesome. Oftentimes I’m way too lenient on my players but tonight I took them to the brink of destruction and it was fantastic (I won’t get into details until I’m told that I can, but I scared the bejeezus out of them from the start and got them to panic).
Rise of the Drow is coming along nicely, as are the prologues and epilogues.
My queue is full and I’ve got to get back to it, but my layout man says that The Mysterious Peaks of Baranthar will be all done by some point this week! That will without a doubt give you a fine idea of how dark it gets; all that is being self-published for a very good reason. 😉
The past two weeks (and the remainder of this week) have been dominated with working on Rise of the Drow, which is perilously close to being finished (as far as the words are concerned) and is right on schedule for release in March 2014.
I strongly encourage you to grab a copy now, while they last. For my part, there’s a brand new kind of magic item, a unique new material, several new creatures and I probably wrote a third or more of the Fungi Forest section (it is quite vast and hard to quantify).
If I ever have a gamemaster tell me we’re walking in there, I’m going to re-train immediately. Living through it, certainly, will be key – the trick is making that happen.
In other news, I’m working on something for Fantasy Flight Games. It is too awesome for mere words to describe, so I’ll simply refrain from trying. It’s going to be incredible though, I promise (although I couldn’t say anything at all specific about it, even if I wanted to).
What I CAN talk about is The Mysterious Peaks of Baranthar, which is right around the corner. Neil Myler, my competent layout guy, is hard at work finishing the maps and putting together an image for the Slopes of Madness encounter. The final draft of the text got into his inbox a few days ago and I suspect we’ll be seeing it made into a beautiful PDF soon.
During GenCon, Neil and I sat down and worked out a logo for the self-publishing imprint. Let me know what you think!
I’m sitting here in a puddle of joyous tears (the kind sort). Read this.
Dear Master Jedi,
This is an open letter of deep appreciation to you. I hope that somehow it finds its way to your computer screen.
You are an actor, and a damn funny one to boot. You’re really skilled at working with the unpredictably of kids and turning it into entertainment. I really hope that when you auditioned for and won this gig, that you’ve been as pleased with your job as your audiences have been with your performance. I also hope that this leads to bigger and better things, if that’s what you choose. You’re a supremely decent man and I’m ever in your debt for how you helped me out Tuesday, June 4th at the end of the last show of the day.
You see, during the months of planning for our Disneyworld trip, I found out about the Jedi Training Academy in Hollywood Studios…
