Congratulations to Steven for really being a Vrock solid designer throughout the competition. To Pedro and Matt, it's been one helluva run gentlemen.

I can't wait to see Tears at Bitter Manor come November!

I thought that the slight delay in this blog appearing might be a name change. Really like the new name, definitely looking forward to playing the module.

Congratulations Steven!

As a fellow Okie freelancer, hats off to you from the OKC metro. I just got back from a business outing to Claremore myself. :P

At the end of all things, my only goal will be to have killed more PCs than Hitcock. Remember the safe word, my friend.

I gotta disagree with James Jacobs on this but I think the original title for the module was better. The new one seems a little too cryptic and too spoilerish. Also the old title is the central element to the plot while the new name is just one piece of the adventure. It's about as badly named as The Cyphermage Dilemma.

Congrats!

These Superstar modules are always a treat, and I'm sure this one is going to keep with that tradition. :)

Congratulations good sir. In honor of your winning, the Book of Beasts: Monsters of the River Nations will be on sale all next week.

Congrats, Steven. BTW, i hate the name change and see it as a bad sign of things to come. I just hope they don't change your awesome idea so much as to make it something completely different than what the fans of rpg superstar voted for.

Congrats on the win.

November is such an ambitious date seeing as how the previous RPG Superstar's module kept getting pushed back and will be over a year if it actually hits the May 22nd release date. That module is only 32 pages and this one is supposedly 64. You really have your work cut out for you or failing that, someone at Paizo might.

I read the announcement and immediately thought Arrested Development.
