The bad news first: The first PG booklet will not be ready till Sept/Nov. I'm still waiting for some key pieces of art (and hopefully writing) that will make this Petty Gods volume complete.
If you've still got a PG assignment in the works, put the final polish on that bad boy!

The good news is that I get to collaborate with Gavin Norman of The City of Iron blog. We're working on an iconic Monster-Haunted Forest Wilderness Adventure/Hexcrawl/Saturday Night Special/Drag n' Drop Into Your Home Campaign micro-setting called Wormwood. The format is decidedly Carcosa-esque in terms of structure, with much of the book devoted to (approx.) 200 hex descriptions. The rest will be comprised of
- New monsters and monster types (goat-men, magically anthropomorphosed animals [many of them psychotic], IOUN-wielding snails of unusual size)
- New magical forces and objects (ley lines, summer stones, plinths)
- New spells (Gavin excels here!)
- New (petty) gods -- Atanuwe the Nag-Lord, Big Chook, and others
- Several dungeons
- Several monster lairs
Here's a sneak preview of the map. It's not the final version -- note the lack of roadways and trails. That swamp texture owes its existence to Rob Conley btw.
