About Time
All right. Enough of your grumbling! You wanted Jeff LaSala in print? So be it!

What? You say that that's not enough? You want his first published gaming release to be a hard cover?

You drive a hard bargain, dear reader. Alas, you know that I have a spine of cardboard and will cave to any reader's demands. That's what comes from being a desperate hack.

So be it. I present you with Jeff's first release, in hardcover:

Available in May: The Adventure Begins!
Goodman Games

Seriously, along with Jeff there are a host of great d20 writers included in this anthology of low-level adventures. Notables include:

Bret Boyd, Michael Ferguson, Andrew Hind, Phillip Larwood, Brendan LaSalle, Jason Little, Rob Manning, Greg Oppedisano, Adrian Pommier, George Strayton, Michael Tresca, Dieter Zimmerman ... and yours truly.

Vanity leads me to mention that the cover illustration is by Roslof and highlights one of my adventures. Isn't that Carly Simon singing in the background?

And speaking of vanity...

Everybody Knows Owlbears Rule
Goodman Games' Owlbear
This miniature was ostensibly created for use with Legacy, but even I’m not so arrogant to claim that that’s why you should buy it. The truth of the matter is that our secret Owlbear Overlords forced me to write an owlbear into the module, just so that a miniature would be eventually be produced, ultimately leading to Harley writing “Reign of Beaked Lords,” an original RPG allowing players to take the role of owlbear overlords carefully guiding the evolution of humanity.

You think Chuck Norris is cool? That boy ain’t got nuthin’ on an owlbear.

But strangely, even owlbears kowtow to the mighty dragon turtles.

I’ve said too much.

Yeah, Grimmy...it's all settled into a nasty sore throat, but, hey, tylenol and chicken soup should take care of that. Thanks for asking. :)

It's an owl, and it's a bear. With the strengths of each, and the weaknesses of none!!! What's not to love?

I think your next module, Harley, should be "Invasion of the Owlbears." And you should indeed have an NPC monk / ranger named "Charles Narlis." No one would EVER see that one coming. ;)

Cheers

Yes, you HAVE said too much, foolish Mr. Stroh. You have dared to reveal the existence of Project World Maul.

For too long, we owlbears have been underestimated. First with our humorous depiction in the first Monster Manual. Even 3rd Edition D&D lists our Intelligence as a mere 2. Well, no more.

The end of humanity as masters of this world has come to an end. The Reign of Feather and Beak is nigh!

Thank you.
