What's on the boil?

There's an awful lot of stuff going on for us at the moment.

Some of it- like new game stuff- we can't tell you about just yet, but there's more than enough stuff on the boil that we can talk about...

The second part of the 'Paths of the Damned' trilogy- Spires of Altdorf- has just hit the shelves. Pleasingly, it seems to be well received by the fans. For the most part this seems to be down to David Chart's excellent writing, and the feedback we got from the forums after the first part- Ashes of Middenheim- came out.

Meanwhile, we were able to bring that something extra to Gamesday by releasing a couple of copies of 'Karak Azgal: Adventures of the Dragons Crag' a month ahead of time. It was printed in Germany, so it's reached us well ahead of time. Hopefully, we'll be able to do something similar by previewing 'Realms of Sorcery' at UK GenCon.

The final part of the 'Paths of the Damned' has just moved into 'extra proofing' before we send it off to print-so if 'Realms of Sorcery' doesn't manage to slay the dread typo beast, then 'Forges of Nuln' surely will...

Further out, David Chart has struck gold again with our Bretonnia supplement 'Knights of the Grail' which we're using to help us in our current playtest adventure- 'Barony of the Damned' Frogs, pigs and men dressed as women abound...

meanwhile, the
rodent saga continues, as does the Black Industries adventure competition- which we chose the second stage entrants for this morning. Looks like it's going to be a close race that one- still, it's bound to be a winner with time strapped GM's out there.

Phew, with all that going on, it's a wonder we have time to write up things on this blog!

We'll leave you with our favorite quote from 'Forges of Nuln'

"None can say whether the name Eyk's End was intended to honour the sturdy burger family of that name, or whether the street name was coined due to some perceived resemblance between one of the city's foremost citizens and the disfigured gargoyle baring its orange buttocks from the large townhouse on the corner"
