Now 90% funded and only a week gone. Fabulous, and THANK YOU!
I was interviewed by Ol' Man Grognard (Glen Hallstrom) the other day, and we talked about the Great Lunden project. Listen to the awesome Radio Grognard podcast episode here.
As mentioned in the last update, the short story is now complete and ready for editing. I've tentatively got it into layout ready too :). Richard has done a magnificent job.
Dourgul's House (Bileward)
The hook-nosed, wart-goblin, Dourgul is a legend amongst the wart goblins. Having saved King Oculon III from a mortal wound delivered by a Gaulandian spy who had infiltrated the Royal Court, Dourgul slipped away from this life, and into wart-goblin folklore. As a reward for saving Oculon’s life, the king posthumously awarded the courageous goblin with The Oculon Cross, the highest medal of honour that can be awarded to Havenfolk. Additionally, an inner ward was handed over to wart goblinkind, which they named Bileward.
Today, the ward is filled with varying businesses and dwellings owned and operated by civilised and educated wart goblins. The ward is primarily known for the middium and gloomium forges and workshops, found here due to the ability of wart-goblin smiths to work these materials to a very high standard, much to the frustration of the human metalsmiths of Blackgate. The gloomium forges run under strict licenses and produce small amounts of goods, usually under commission from the queen herself. This work is secretive, and the wart goblins take their security very seriously.
I packaged and sent out all the ENnie 2019 submissions this week. The Midderlands Expanded (Setting), Murder Knights of Corvendark (Adventure), and Midderzine Issue #1 (Supplement) are all out there.
I would also expect that this project to be entered into the 2020 ENnies! Keep an eye on the submissions and awards process here: http://www.ennie-awards.com/blog/
