The preview articles continue over at the FAR WEST website. Today's entry features an overview of the combat system!
The article features another new piece by Rick Hershey, which I've included below. Well, OK, it's about half of a piece -- a close-up of a larger image which will appear in the book.
Back to work. I've still got a bunch to do -- and later this week, I'm headed to my oldest daughter's graduation from college, which means I'll be spending time with my laptop in the back of a van as it heads across country! No distance, nor discomfort, nor parental duty shall stay this rider from my appointed task!
