Don’t forget the 4th new book for $13 <Hand of Asgard>

It took me a few minutes to figure out why I had kicked the extra $$ into the pledge. I knew there was a reason...

And yeah, that World map is cool, too :)

Update #29 for Nordlond Sagas is up.

It's a bit of a status update, so ok, that's boring. But Hand of Asgard and Nordlondr Folk are starting to have their art flow in at friendly rates . . . and HoA in particular is going to be PRETTY.

There's a full-page preview of one of the pages at the update as well: The Lawgiver. Yeah, that's Totally Not Tyr. Really.

If you missed the campaign...pre-orders are open.

For Hand of Asgard, in all cases but one I have final art; for that I have rough-color (though it's still VERY good even if the artist calls it rough).

I thought I'd share an art preview. If you like it, you can pre-order the book on Backerkit!

Who is the Lord of Warding based on?

He must be able to hear them from persons who actually believe them...he must know them in their most plausible and persuasive form.”

The god Lord of Warding is based on Heimdall. The image shown is a Cleric of Warding casting "Warding Dismissal," one of the new Holy abilities.

The fact that all of this art is customized to the book is glorious.

In fairness . . . I have re-used six images from other books of mine. Dragon Heresy was 288 pages long and chock full of art. Some of which GURPSy folks have seen, some of which they have not. The cover, the Allfather, the Fates, the Lawgiver, Mischief, Queen of the World, The Snow Queen, and the Valkyrie are all bespoke images for this book.

Every image on the interior for Nordlondr Folk is bespoke for the book...and they're REALLY fun.

I will have to see what wordcount and layout allow for the adventures.

These adventures would have used the real names of the Norse gods but they have excellent intellectual property rights lawyers so we are stuck with vague generic names for the gods instead.

Tyr's lawyers are, indeed, hard to beat!

Personally, though, I like the generic nature of DFRPG material. It's easy enough to swap the names back. I often change many of the names in published material anyway to fit my own game worlds.

It's even possible to search-and-replace the text in a PDF so that you can have the names reflect whatever you want.
