I had a nice surprise in the post yesterday–the first proof copies of the Thingonomicon! Behold:
Shortly available in both softcover and hardback. (It’s ages since Raging Swan Press did a hardcover) The Thingonomicon collates almost 200 pages of 20 Things-style lists ready for use in your game!
As an experiment, we went with higher quality paper for these books and it looks (and feels) really nice.
Hopefully, I won’t find any problems during my proofing of the proofs!
Last night, we restarted my Adventures in Shadow campaign set primarily in the city of Languard and the benighted, shadowy halls of Gloamhold. It’s been a long time since I’ve lurked in the deep shadows behind my GM’s screen and I had a ball.
As you may have noticed, 2019 is hurtling toward us. This means it’s time for some sustained and furious plotting at Raging Swan Press’s Planar HQ.
My Adventures in Shadow campaign will soon be re-starting. I can’t get back into the action. After all, Gloamhold represents–essentially–my perfect campaign: Conan vas. Cthulhu in a Megadungeon!
As regular readers know, Matt Morrow does a lot of art for Raging Swan Press (as for me, his style almost perfectly encapsulates my beloved old-school feel). Check out what he just sent me—bathe in its awesome old-school goodness!
Next month, we are restarting my Adventures in Shadow campaign, set in Gloamhold. (Hooray!) The campaign is going be much more of a sandbox campaign than we’ve recently run, and this presents a minor problem for me as I love to be super prepared for the game. So I thought I’d ask you, how do you prepare for a sandbox game?
Help me prepare my game, by leaving your advice in comments in the below.
If you’ve been following my blog, you’ll know September is my 30,000-word adventure month, in that my plan is to write a 30,000-word adventure from scratch by the end of the month. Well, I’ve got some exciting news!
At the end of last week, I blogged about the Forsaken Demesne of the Demon’s Cultists and my September 30,000-word challenge. Loads of people asked be kept apprised of my progress and so without further ado, I give you my first update!
September seems to be a month full of gaming and writing goodness for me. It’s going to be an awesome month!
