Beyond the Ice-Fall Play Reports!

Hi All,

The excellent Acep Hale over at The Monstrous Pig is sharing play reports of my Swords & Wizardry White Box scenario, Beyond the Ice-Fall! Follow his "murder hobbits" as they explore the wintry region of the Skallafjord and seek out the missing sea-captain, Hallstan the Wayfarer!

Beyond the Ice-Fall is a Nordic-themed adventure with good dose of pseudo-historical influence, a heaping handful of mythology, and the mighty thews of Howardian Sword & Sorcery! I'm putting the adventure on a 20% off Sale until the end of July, grab it at RPGNow!

Maps, Art, & Eldritch Tales News

Just wanted to post a quick update to inform you all about the goings-on with Eldritch Tales! I have been periodically posting brief bits of information on G+, some of which I will recap here since I know that not everyone catches those posts.

Most importantly - progress is great and is nearing completion! All art is officially complete, including my own. The only thing remaining to complete is the final map of "Lovecraft Country," which I am personally grinding out in my spare time. I hope to have it done within the next two weeks. Here is a look at a portion of the completed Arkham map:

Pre-layout prep of the manuscript is done. Tom Novosel is still working on a few design bits but the work he has done has been absolutely stellar. Every new test page he sends just blows me away and I think you will all be happy with how this book will appeal to the eye. A while ago I mentioned somewhere that I had come to the decision to hire a proper layout professional, rather than doing it myself. Best choice I've made in this project.
