I am at capacity for new godlings! If you're a contributor to the original project begun by James M of Grognardia AND we haven't talked yet, then send me a line. If we've communicated and I know that you've got a godling on the way -- no worries, just send it when it's complete.
And the big news:
I am now in possession of ALL the original material -- thanks especially to PETER GIFFORD.
Peter [aka Universal Head] was working with James for some time on this project and completed a 150-page draft of PETTY GODS. He is a professional graphic designer -- one responsible for a little site you may have heard about:
Peter contacted James with the offer of doing the layout for Petty Gods in October last year; spent about a month laying out a 150 page book which just needed a final editorial pass before completion and publication; then James dropped off the map.
His blog is called Headless Hollow. As Universal Head, he's known among boardgamers for doing hundreds of quality rules summaries and the graphic design for several games (eg. Tales of the Arabian Nights, Ninjato, Aztlan).
I would like to release Peter's draft here on Gorgonmilk, with his permission. Would you guys be interested in seeing the Original Petty Gods book?
I've just been informed that Chris Huth recently lost his home. Hopefully he'll be back on his feet soon.
Let's talk about the frontispiece on PETTY GODS' title page. It's going to be circular a la [art by Trampier]:
The front and back covers of this book -- by Thomas Denmark and Paul Ballard respectively -- are embedded in a primordial forest haunted by weird gods and ruins. I'd like to pull that theme to the frontispiece as well. If you're up to the challenge and have ideas, contact me:
