Frog God Games Acquires Necromancer Games

Got this announcement in my email today:
Frog God Games announced today that they are acquiring Necromancer Games, the award-winning publishing house known for Necropolis, Rappan Athuk, City of Brass, Tomb of Abysthor, Crucible of Freya, Tome of Horrors, and many other famous titles. The purchase of Necromancer Games considerably increases Frog God Games’ influence in the tabletop gaming industry. 

Frog God Games will re-animate several of Necromancer Games’ products in the future to provide its customers with revised and expanded products for a variety of tabletop editions.

Yet More Greyhawk Heraldry

I needed to take a writing break, so in my idle moments I put together some more heraldic devices from the World of Greyhawk. As before, these are done using the superb Coat of Arms Design Studio Pro by Inkwell Ideas (there's a free demo version available on their website, but it's not at all "crippleware"), with a touch-up here and there in GIMP. They come out as .png files, so they should scale great (within reason); you should click to embiggen and then save the resulting image, if you so desire. As before, it's just a hodgepodge of nations with no real theme other than I liked the designs. So without further ado, I give you...

Fief of Ahlissa

(An interesting note about this one; for some reason Ahlissa has three cannonballs in its design. While that's not all unusual in historical Medieval heraldry, it doesn't make a lick of sense in a fantasy world where black powder isn't supposed to work...)
