Breaking the Camel’s back and sending it to Master for dinner

Posted by Newt Newport (Creator)

Hail to ye oh Glorious Backers and Curious Onlookers!

This month’s update sees both me and artist slaving away at words and pictures respectively. I’ve been blasting though the new content for the Adventurers Book, taking the occasional dark trip to visit the new setting information in the Crypt Keepers Guide. I’m aiming to have the first draft done before I’m on holiday at the end of the month, so the proofers can have their wicked way with it while I’m away. David meanwhile is busy inking the first wave of art, the replacement pieces for the existing art, and has sent me four completed pieces which I attach below for your enjoyment.

I’d like to extend a big thank you to all the Patrons of the Arts and Conquerors who sent me suggestions for Art and Rules last month. There’s lots of good stuff there which I’m going to have fun adding to the book.

So a rather sparse update here, since we are at that stage were it's heads down and  getting on with the work.

Note next update will be mid-August, when I’ve returned from the adventure that is the Great Family Summer Holiday!

Happy gaming

      Wow! The artwork is gorgeously grotesque in the beauty of stark black and white ink. :-O

      Hope, the same treatment will be meted out to Mamba, in his ghostly incarnation.

      Agreed, the art looks great!

      Dear Dr,
      I shall collect information about add-ons in the Backers Survey when I'm nearer to release in Sept.

      Yes the art is giving me goosebumps as well :)

      Mr. Newport, I have a quick question for you: Will there be a Pledge Manager of some sort for those backers who pledged more than the cost of the PDF in order to get some of the add-on adventures? Thank you.

      The artwork looks fantastic - I cannot wait to see the finished book.
