Needs a review. I suggest sending EZG a copy.
Or perhaps at least post a few tidbits as preview. The blurb is a bit unspecific...
Copying from the ToN thread:
Truth be told, the 1st book looks to have a better description. Mine's got 15 side-trek scenarios instead of 17 though. It's got thugs, a minotaur, undead, constructs, a succubus, doppelgangers, fey, a dragon, etc, but not all at once.
That helps a bit.
Ask the guys at the acaeum, there are a few d20 collectors there, and a few threads on DCC on their forums.
Apparently dcc3.5 is a rarity and worth quite a lot (>500$)! Do congrats, you lucked out.
Also there's a dcc51 up on eBay right now. I'm watching it to see what it's worth too... I'm guessing $50-75.
If you sell them make sure to post a link to the auction on the acaeum marketplace forum. Or you could advertise there and make a deal without the horrendous eBay fees...
I would also like the series to be continued, but I would like there to be a little bit more content to the encounters. At present it is only 2 statblocks , one item and a bit of history text and 2 small encounter ideas.
I would really have liked a description and map of granny's house for example. And a bit more guidance on how the encounters would play out. Also a bit more ecology/history on the wolf would have been nice. Is he a custom built monster ? I'd really have liked his mechanical build to be more clearly derived from a standard monster.
Unless you already sent EZG a copy I think I'll send him one for a more indepth review and constructive criticism, as I'd really like this line to go on.
Berselius, are you aware of Everyman Gamings Leadership Handbook? Might be worth a look...
Well there are several 3pp offerings:
There's The Red Dragon Inn: Guide to Inns and Taverns (Pathfinder RPG) by SlugFest Games the makers ot the Red Dragon Inn. The free preview Appetizer for it has drinking rules.
Also NNW's Scourge: The Deluxe Guide to Disease and Poison (PFRPG) PDF (sadly lacking reviews)
The Ebon Shroud
North of Tarkshorn Vale, beyond the giant infested Britlebone Mountains, night reigns eternal. Deep in the icy holocaust of the Ebon Shroud the cold kills all but the most stubborn of beasts, and true immortals rule a landscape of frozen nightmares from castles of blood and ice. These elder vampires have held the Ebon Shroud in their jaundiced fist since time immemorial, quelling the last of the wolf lords in a Silver Eclipse long ago. The living are little more than cattle to feed their hunger and toys to satisfy their dark whims.
The only threat to their power is the smoking citadel of Bhaarel, whose smoke-spewing basalt spire rose from the glacial expanse fifty years ago. Just as the rivers of hot fiendish blood that pour through the Black City's stony veins defy the hoarfrost and howling wind, so too does this hell-spat stronghold defy the vampires of the Ebon Shroud.
Long have the civilized races south of the Brittlebone Mountains avoided the scrutiny of both these dread powers, and most who dwell in Tarkshorn Vale know nothing of the ominous powers roiling in the sun-scorned reaches to the north. But now the darkness is on the move. The Ebon Shroud rolls southward swallowing everything in its path, as implacable as the deathless masters who ride with it.
The Ebon Shroud is a 130+ page mega-adventure for 12th to 20th level characters, brought to you by the twisted fever dreams of Richard Pett and Nicolas Logue. Using an exciting and entirely non-linear plot web format The Ebon Shroud allows you and your players to venture into a realm of darkness and adventure in any way you see fit. You are humanity's last hope for survival. How will you face the darkness?
They did it in 2E: Forgotten Realms: FR7 Hall of Heroes, Villains Lorebook, and for Ravenloft Champions of the Mists. And i liked it. Though of course those stats could often be imporved a lot and not necesarrily only from an optimization standpoint.
Paul Kemp had an article in Dragon mag showing stats for Erevis Cale, though I like the improved stats by Tom Costa posted in this thread way better, and Paul Kemp who chimed in in the thread did like them too.
But then the protagonists of the novels were written into the history of the campaign setting. Paizo rarely mentions them in the settting products if at all, keeping the fiction separate from the RPG history canon.
Maybe you should all run a Stat up my characters contest like Dave Gross did . Maybe compile the best 3 entries into a netbook or special edition of Wayfinder ?
Also there's How to Host a Dungeon "a solo game of dungeon creation where you build a dungeon through its history from the dawn of time. [...] When you complete your game, you have a dungeon history and map suitable for a dungeon crawling role-playing game or just your own enjoyment."
A google image search for dwarven dungeon turns up lots of nice maps.
His amazon author profile is interesting:
Michael LaBossiere is a guy from Maine who went to school in Ohio and ended up a philosophy professor in Florida.
While acquiring his doctorate in philosophy at Ohio State University, he earned his ramen noodle money by writing for GDW, TSR, R. Talsorian Games, and Chaosium. After graduate school, he became a philosophy professor at Florida A&M University. His first philosophy book, What Don't You Know?, was published in 2008. He continues to write philosophy and gaming material. He is also a blogger, but these days who isn't?
When not writing, he enjoys running, gaming and the martial arts. Thanks to a quadriceps tendon tear in 2009, he was out of running for a while, but returned to the trails and wrote a book about it, Of Tendon & Trail.
