First, I am pleased to announce another artist is on board to provide additional illustrations for HOW. Below is a sample first sketch from Urric and I think after seeing his work on deviant art you'll be as excited as I am to see what else he does!
In addition some other emails have asked about plans and progress with this project, and I though maybe others might be curious too:
1) Heroes & Other Worlds will be the core rules set.
2) Blades & Black Magic is a Sword & Sorcery setting/variant using the HOW rules as their basis.
3) I do plan on doing a programmed "life or death" adventure
4) Once HOW is out, I'd like to solicit player ideas, adventures, equipment, spell or magic item additions to be included in a free downloadable quarterly zine. By fans for fans!
So in a nutshell that's where we stand. Any questions? Ask 'em if you got 'em!
