As the follow-up to The Trolls of Mistwood continues on its plodding development, I thought I'd take some time to focus on some developments.
For the most part, my writing is completed and I'm just waiting on my co-writer, Daniel J. Bishop, to deliver his part. The snippets I have received make me anxious to read the finished adventure. When you are the only writer you don't want to second guess how your writing will be received but as a co-writer, I get excited just by the unexpected developments Daniel is adding. I'm very eager to read what's to come.
In terms of art, there have been some exciting developments. One of them is the official addition of Del Teigeler to the Curse Team. Here is a sample of the map Del is working on for the adventure:
Brian has taken a step back from adventure creation and I was lucky enough to have had his original maps to develop into the setting of this adventure. The fun aspect for me is we take a familiar environment and corrupt it.
My illustrating is coming along and the great thing about having Daniel sharing some of his ideas is he inspires scary sh!t to draw. This is a picture of me trying to sleep and Daniel putting scary sh!t in my mind.
This adventure is going to be huge and IMO awesome. I'm considering launching this adventure as a Kickstarter so I can include some extra goodies in terms of art books, monster ecology guides and so on. The last thing I want to do is crowd fund something that I wouldn't myself invest in. Anyone who has advice on doing or not doing this, I'm all ears.
