I'm in the midst of layout for the first XPG booklet, and I'm pleased with how it's coming along. To whet your appetite, here's Paul Gallagher's masterful take on Crom, a god of northern barbarian types. You may have heard of him before.

James Mishler wrote up the stats and some great text for this entry. I feel that these guys (Paul, James and Crom) add a lot of flavor and nerdy interest to a booklet that is chock full of interesting nerdy flavors. If Cthulhu and Arioch deserved the D&D treatment back in DEITIES & DEMI-GODS, surely this famous barbarian patron is long overdue for the same.

If someone was inclined to write up a decent treatment for Mitra (the Hyborian version), I wouldn't mind seeing him in a later volume of XPG. Contact me and we can discuss the particulars.


  1. I'd love to see an update of Set as well. You can always use the Deities and Demigods version, but I think one specifically in line with REH's setting would be nice to have alongside Mitra.

  2. Crom! That is some sweet illo.
