Fear the Ferg!
Cover
Mike Ferguson, the man who brought you the Emerald Cobra, has a new module coming out! No word on the release date, but September/October is a good bet. Meanwhile, check out Mike's musings on his blog. He has good insights on game design and is happy to share.

That, and the dog beat me to the title. Horned Lords are just so darn cool. *shakes fist in mock fury*

Oh, sweet! Cover art at last!

Heh. I'd seen the cover artwork, but not the layout.

It's so ... pink. : )

All I know is that I wrote a Dungeon Crawl Classic adventure that has artwork by Jeff Dee. Awesome. That's been a dream of mine ever since I bought "White Plume Mountain" at Tiny Tots Hobbies some 20 years ago - the orange one with the cool Jeff Dee cover.

Not sure what that says about my dreams, but it's pretty cool nonetheless.

BTW, thanks for the props, H-Man. Gotta get back to updating my own blog on a more semi-regular basis.

And I was lamenting that my first solo publication was yellow. I feel better now... ;)

But seriously, it's amazing how these things take on a new life when in book form. I bet my own modules are ten times cooler when given the oldschool art covers and interior black and white drawings.

While we're on the topic of Mike Ferugson....Mike, are you going to be at GenCon? I seem to have missed the questions/answer at some point previous.

Oh hey, on a slightly different note, there's a review of HS' Into the Wilds over at rpg.net.

The author does an admiral job of wringing some originality...

I'm sorry, but that just made me laugh... ;)

It's so hard to get it across to reviewers that the modules are "Dungeon Crawl Classics."

They are supposed to be "just" dungeons. That's the point of the series.

It would be like me complaining about all the references to dragons in The Hobbit.

All things being equal, it's a good review. Mr. Roberson even took the time to get in touch with me before publishing it --- very cool on his part.

No, I agree, it's a good review. I just wonder what the difference between an "admiral" job and a "general" job would be. ;)

Hehehe. Do'h!

At least I'm not the only one with typos.

Marce!

Get back to writing, darnit!
