NOD #4 On the Horizon
I'm about 75% complete with writing the fourth issue of my non-award winning gaming magazine. Articles will be ...
- Eastern Venatia - sandbox with 200+ encounter areas
- Gods of the Golden Sea - a pantheon of deities inspired by the Thracians, Dacians and other assorted -acians
- Medieval Bestiary - a couple dozen monsters based on medieval folklore
- Phantastes - a couple more chapters of the classic fantasy story by George MacDonald
I'm also including two medium-sized dungeon crawls - The Ruins of Timulus and the Pleasure Palace of Izrigul, both located in the Eastern Venatia sandbox.
I'm hoping to get this thing out by Sept 2 before I take a mini-vacation to the land of my ancestors - Ottumwa IA. Should probably clock in at 110-120 pages.

I've always loved that painting, nice choice.ReplyDelete
Consider me one guaranteed sale - still working my way through issues one to three.ReplyDelete
Is Mystery Men still going to be in there, as that tickled a particular fancy of mine (what with me liking them super-heroes and all!)?
Any plans to put all the books together into one big megabook?ReplyDelete
Very pretty - I'll be buying!ReplyDelete
I think Mystery Men will have to wait until #5 - the city-state issues usually need more articles. However, since you requested it, I'll post it on the blog over the weekend with one request - does anyone know where I can find some public domain superhero art - just a single, simple B&W image I can use to illustrate the article?ReplyDelete
Megabook - I might have plans for that, yes. I'm thinking about doing some yearbooks to collect articles for players and referees, so a megabook covering an entire region is not out of the question. Time will tell - right now I'm focused on producing three more issues of NOD this year and publishing the basic version of PARS FORTUNA.
Here's a site for public domain superheroesReplyDelete
there might be something there (says the man who doesn't have the brain to figure public domain/OGL/GSL/creative commons etc)
Oh, and thank you (in advance) for the blog post :-)ReplyDelete
Acrobatic Flea - thank you sir! That wiki hits the spot. I might go ahead and convert some of those public domain heroes using my little system - heck, one image I just found might just be the cover of NOD #5!ReplyDelete
