hmm this might a regular feature.
Ok so next is a busy, busy week for me.
I am going to post a bunch of "The Best Blogs You Are Not Reading" posts. I may not though be able to adequately respond to responses or even properly promote the posts.
I am also unsure whether I'll have a White Dwarf Wednesday ready to go at all either. Yeah, it's going to be that kind of week.
In other news the new D&D Next playtest packet is out. People seem to like it. I have not read it yet myself.
So let me get this all straight WotC is A.) distributing their playtest material for free for anyone to play with and they are updating based on the feedback they are getting. B.) selling PDFs again and C.) have the reprints in physical stores for people to buy. Oh and every so often Dragon features material for older editions. It sounds like they are listening to their customers.
Eldritch Witchery Update / Elf Lair Games Update
Ok so. Yeah. I am way late on Eldritch Witchery. It was due out at the same time as the Witch, but needed some additional editing. In talks with Jason Vey (head Elf at Elf Lair Games) we decided to merge in a couple of other products with EW that fit. My celtic themed Old School game based on Spellcraft & Swordplay is for the most part dead in the water. I know. I am saddened by it too, but Jason did not want to be in a position of competing with Troll Lords who publishes his Amazing Adventures game. I can't say that I blame him. Besides, the Codex Celtarum looks fantastic. Éire will see the light of day, someday, but not as a Spellcraft & Swordplay book. The materials though that went into it have been folded into EW rather nicely. The other book I was working on was a book on demons and devils for Old School games. But since that project started we have had a number of good monster books come out. So that is also being folded in and the Warlock class in EW is getting a nice boost because of it. I am editing down some things too to make sure this is not going to be a 300 page book. Some of that will appear here on the blog.
A to Z Blogfest
I am doing demons. Should be fun. I have 100s or so to talk about, so the trick narrowing it down to just 26.
What pushed Demons up over Vampires? Easy. I found a "Q" demon before a "Q" vampire.
