As the "final" due date approacheth for art and text (June 30, aka tomorrow), your humble editor doth transition from optimist to not-quite-cynical realist. It's very obvious that everything will not make it in overnight -- and currently that means about 40% of the project is still waiting to be realized.
But do not despair! While this (inevitable) delay means it will take a bit longer for PETTY GODS to become a big ol' hardcover book that you can nestle among your manuals and handbooks, I think I can slake your thirst for weird godlets with a little somethin' somethin'.
Originally I wanted to layout the big book and rush it off to the proofers, then eventually get around to breaking PG up into ODD-sized booklet format. Now that things are what they are, it makes sense to do the reverse and start publishing the material I have at hand.
And that's just what I'm up to presently. The first booklet will contain about forty deities, including the work of TSR veterans Erol Otus and James Ward. Here's what the cover looks like:
All the XPG booklets -- I'm thinking we may have six or so -- will be in black and white with some red here and there. I'll do my best to have this up for download soon! Btw that's Matt Schmeer's Tonya on the front cover as depicted by Andrew Walter.
