Snakes, I Hate Snakes!

Friday, January 28, 2011

I've been in the gaming industry for a decade now and I still get a smile on my face when new product arrives from the printer and I get to thumb through it for the first time. This week was a banner week as I got preview copies of Flip-Mat Village Square, the new Pathfinder Tales novel Plague of Shadows from sword and sorcery master Howard Andrew Jones, and the theme for this week's wallpaper: "Sanctum of the Serpent God," part 6 of the Serpent Skull Adventure Path. This awesome piece showcases

Spoiler:

Vyr-Azul, the High Priest of Ydersius, the insidious villain of Serpent Skull who plans to restore his god and usher in a new Age of Serpents. You'll finally meet him at the heart of the serpent-god's sanctum, and the fate of Golarion hangs in the balance!

That cover brings back memories of Governor Schwarzenegger's Conan.

And the Animated GI Joe Movie as well.

COBRA !

Man, am I old.

Silver Crusade

That is the second happiest snake I have ever seen.

Does anyone else get an erroer message when they click on the Widescreen link?

Sorry

Yes the wide-screen link is broken.


Thank ye, Hyrum!

Prithee, Baron, what meanest thou by coupling such youthful ensamples as these with the hoary rime of time which frosteth the brows of Methusalehs?

That's some mighty nice hair Merisiel's got going there.

Yep, not working for me either. I'll ask Ross to look at it when I get into the office.

Hyrum.


Hmm. Can we ask for spoiler tag in today's entry?

Specifically: villain's name, general plot details.
We're living in Google Age, and I'd prefer that such information did not appear among search results for "Serpent's Skull".

Seconded, the AP is now probably ruined for me.

I've been assiduously avoiding the AP, passing each volume to my friend who is going to GM it and only reading the AP fiction. I have shut the AP forum so that I can only glance at the titles.

Then I take my daily trip to the blog and BAM! Villain and plot!

Please change the blog asap so that it doesn't spoil anyone else's enjoyment.


Hey everyone,

The wallpaper is the cover of the AP and the info is taken from the back of the book, which you could easily come up in any Google search.

Hyrum.

Sincerely Argh then.

As long as Serpent's Skull not a part Google Books program, there is a high chance that keeping the information on the back of the book and not on a front page of a prominent website may be desirable.

Hyrum, for the sake of my players being able to browse Paizo website, please...

I've just asked Ross to amend this blog post to put in a spoiler alert or button or something.


Could we please get the wide version of the wallpaper linked up?

The spoiler button has been added. And the Wide Wallpaper has been linked.


Thanks, Ross!


Many thanks, Ross and Hyrum.
