The Tower of Frikkin' Death

Now that 2013 has arrived, Spawn of Endra and I have been talking about our next publishing project, the adventure module The Tower of Death. 

As I mentioned late last summer, the module is completely drafted, clocking in at just under 20 pages at present. It is my hope to keep it about that page count, or maybe even to trim some fat out of the prose on the next (hopefully final) revision pass. The Tower of Death has also been playtested, both by some of my "home" (Skype) group players as well as two different groups at OSRCon 2011 (see report here). Now the project merely awaits a final revision pass (my job), artwork (ideally, a cover by Johnathan and Daisey Bingham and interior art by Kelvin Green), cartography (by Spawn of Endra), and layout (also by Spawn).

In other words, not much has changed since my last lengthy update about the project, we're just now finally entering the final phases. The aim is to release the module at a reasonable price point in both pdf and POD formats by the end of 2013.

  1. Wow, not until the end of 2013 - holy long time, Batman. Not that I have ANY room to talk. I'm just now in the midst of really really drafting a bake book.

    Cheers and boogie boogie.

    1. Yes, I always like to say that "you can't rush greatness," which is really just my excuse phrase for being a slow and deliberate worker.

    1. Wonderful!! Spawn and I need to confer one more time -- I just sent him the manuscript quite recently -- and then I'll be in touch about the kinds of illos we think we might be looking for.
