Only 5 left - Advanced Adventures Compendium Three

Thought I should let everyone know that there are only 5 copies of AA Compendium Three left. So if you want to make a purchase, you should probably do it quickly. I have plenty of copies of One and Two, so no worries there.

Castle Map in Progress (III)

I've now got all the levels in the castle finished. I need to go back and touch up a few of the stairs and add in all the windows. It ended up being 5 levels tall. All in all, I think it's a good map and I'm pleased with it. I think it will present a significant challenge to a party just from a design perspective.

Advanced Adventures Compendium THREE (hardback version) On Sale!

So I just got the book shipment back from NTRPG Con (lotta fun, btw) and I'm putting all our Advanced Adventures Compendiums (One, Two, & Three) up for sale at the Expeditious Retreat Press website.

Note that Compendium Three won't be officially available until about mid-year of 2014 (perhaps even later) and I had just made a short run for NTRPG Con. Compendium Three contains AA#30 which hasn't even been released yet as an individual module.

Oh, and to sweeten the pot, all of them are on sale for only $40 instead of the normal $50. ...and Malevolent & Benign (hardback) is on sale for $30 (normal $40).

Go buy some, ok? You won't regret it. They're pretty damn good, IMO (and I'm not biased at all...).

Castle Map in Progress (II)

Been plugging away at the map and it's starting to take shape. I suspect it's going to have two or three more levels before it's done. I've got in many of the arrow slits and several doors, but the levels are not finished yet.

A Castle Map in Progress

I'm working on a castle map and so far I'm pleased with it overall. I've got a lot of detailing to do, but I think the general style is very presentable with high utility. The funny thing about making this map so far is that it's probably taken me as much time thinking about it as doing it. Oh well, future maps will go much faster. This place is very defensible... woe unto those that attempt to breach it.

Just Purchased an Advanced Adventure Manuscript!

Pleased to say that I've just purchased an Advanced Adventures manuscript from none other that Stuart Marshall, one of the prime forces behind the creation of OSRIC! He had an idea that dovetailed nicely into an idea I had, so we're going to be sharing an author credit sometime in the future (probably early next year). I'm anticipating the many player deaths that will inevitably result from exploring the Halls of Lidless Shabbath and what lies beyond those halls.

I'm still looking for more AA manuscripts!

Working from a La-Z-Boy

So Suzi's traveling for her Nurse Practitioner clinicals and she secured a house for us via her preceptor's employer. So now I'm sitting in a strange house, working from a chair much more comfy than my normal chair. I'm streaming Screaming for Vengeance via Youtube (own the album so feel fine about it) and about to read through a manuscript I received via e-mail yesterday.

Somewhere along the line, the future became the present....

It's hard to describe this weird temporal mix I'm in. Modern communications, music from the early 80's, reading a manuscript for a game from the late 70's.

(and if you don't have this album for some unknown reason, go buy it)

The Lost Keys of Solitude Free PDF!

So a Facebook friend of mine posted just a second ago about being kind and creative and it inspired me to put up one of the Advanced Adventures that Suzi Yee and I wrote up for free PDF download. Don't know how long it will be free, but enjoy!

Back from NTRPG Con

Got in on the old flying iron bird last night from NTRPG con and after a 12 hour rest I am ready to face the world. Had a lot of fun meeting everyone, talking business, and playing in a few games.

I think the highlight was when I sat down at a table with Frank Mentzer and Greg Gillespie and a gentleman I didn't know. They were talking about publishing and Frank got up for a prior engagement after a few minutes of conversation. The gentleman I didn't know was talking about how he had submitted some art for a project that hasn't seen the light of day and and I politely asked, "Oh, you're an artist?"

He simply showed me his name badge (which was turned around) - Erol Otus.

Yeah, that's how I met Erol Otus. "Oh, you're an artist?"

Ha! :-)

Now, to fulfill some outstanding orders and get back into the flow of day-to-day work. Everything that was ordered while we were gone will go out tomorrow.

And awaaaaay we go!

Flying out to NTRPG con today and this popped into my head. Hopefully, my flight we be uneventful. I'm going to be out of contact until late Sunday, June 9. If you need me, call me.

Out of Touch, Out of Mind

I've been silent for a while now because, believe it or not, I've actually taken almost two weeks off from working (by that I mean no more than an hour or so a day). Suzi's finally starting her Nurse Practitioner clinicals and we're traveling for that, so I'll probably be posting a bit less than normal, but we'll see.

Other than that, not much new here. Looking forwards to NTRPG con on Thursday.
