Recounts of the adventures of Sir Bedwin, Knight of the Yellow Rose, are common minstrel fair, but this collection is an elegant affair suitable for the landed class. This book contains all 2,564 trochaic tetrameter stanzas of Bedwin’s encounter with the Azure Dragon, the powerful lord of the Berwint valley, in which Bedwin’s faithfulness is tested through a series of challenges. Bedwin is found lacking, but the mighty Azure Dragon takes pity upon him for he is but a frail human, sending him back to the grand table of King Niall with the mighty Blue Shield of Camonbret as a reminder that forgiveness is a high virtue.

New Frontier - Donald Fagan (Music)

There are few songs that I consider perfect. This is one of them. It is what it is so beautifully. Worth a listen if you've never heard it, and another run if you have.
Well I can't wait 'til I move to the city
'Til I finally make up my mind
To learn design and study overseas

Advanced Adventures #33: The Halls of Lidless Shabbath

Glad to say I've started the lay out for AA#33. This one's a real challenging module for characters of 12th-15th level. I should get to the commisioning art phase soon. I'm really looking forward to this one coming out. The top levels were written by none other than Stuart Marshall, and I rounded out the module with the bottom levels. Some really, really PC-unfriendly stuff here.... :-)

Rolled into a yard-tall, ivory scroll tube, the worn charcoal rubbing of a giant map etched into an ancient monolith hints that travel between worlds was once easy. More enticingly, the map pinpoints the entrance to the eldritch pathway. The crude rubbing shows nothing but the location of the ancient and legendary dungeon known as the Halls of Lidless Shabbath!

Tome of Tomes

What do you get when an elf puts the soul of a dwarven master smith into a book?

The Dwarven Smith
Author: High Lord Orgol Inglorion
Race: Elf
Dimensions: 6x5x1
Weight: 1 lbs.
Materials: Dwarf-skin-bound, woodboard, parchment
Rarity: Unique
Fields of Study: Physical universe, supernatural & unusual
Special Knowledge Categories: Chemistry, dweomercraeft
Value: 2,550 gp

This thoroughly evil book contains the spirit of the sacrificed dwarven master smith Telkar. Anyone reading and studying this tome for 1 month gains his smithing knowledge as long as the book is within 100 ft. Only a single creature can master the book at a time. The production of this work started the 4th Averine war between the elves and the dwarves, resulting in the fall of Orgol and house Inglorion. The Dwarven Smith, however, was not recovered and vanished into legend.
