It's Here!


The first proof copy of A Curious Volume of Forgotten Lore (that's the softcover in the picture; apologies for the flash glare-- it's a hasty picture). One formatting issue needs to be fixed (that's why we do proofs), but the books should be ready for purchase very soon now!

That looks awesome, Joe! Congratulations :)

Cool!

Don't worry about the glare, looks like it comes from the wizard's staff. ;)

Glad's artwork, great as always.

Joseph Bloch said...

You got that right. Glad's artwork makes the book come alive. It's so evocative of the old school aesthetic, I'm thrilled that I was able to get him for the art.

Congrats, Joe! So where will we be able to buy them from, besides a few web sites I've seen? Would any friendly neighborhood game shops carry them, or special order them if asked nicely?

Joseph Bloch said...

At the moment, it's going to be exclusive to RPGNow.com and its associated sites.

I hope to get this and the full three-volume set into stores next year, though. If sales are strong enough, that'll really help.

Looks good! Did you correct the 'Septagram' entry on page 70?

A Hexagram is a six pointed star (aka the Seal of Solomon) while a Septagram is a seven pointed star.

I sent a message via the Kickstarter but I don't know if you got it or not.

That's a whole bunch of 1E behind that baby.

Hamlet said...

Awesome. Can't wait to get my copy.

So, when do we see the kickstarter for the three volume set? And the important question, can we have an option to have it printed "ye olde style" like the original hardback books were?

Joseph Bloch said...

Pat: Yes, that got fixed.

FF: In more ways than one. ;-)

Hamlet: Yes, there will be both softcover and hardcover versions available.

As far as the three-volume set, that's next on the schedule, hopefully this year since the books themselves are already done. I'm still deciding whether or not to do a Kickstarter for them.
