I'm very sad to learn about Aaron Allton's passing, yesterday, February 27th. Aaron was a long-time and trusted contributor to the Mystara product line as well as the author of many other works. I'd like to take a moment to salute his achievements.
Blood and Dr. McQuark, The
Champions (5th Edition)
Story "In Stranger Skies" is with the editor. She says she's enjoying Mama Goo's linguistic peculiarities.
"Mama Goo, she speaka like de fellfolk. Mama Goo, she cut off de chicken 'ead an' read de blood. Now she know de Great Spirit put Mama Goo on de big canoe in de sky. But de Great Spirit, she no' say why. An' Mama Goo, now she like de lilla' cap'n. Him great warrior."
Done writing the world and races overview. Honestly, it would help if the book were at least twice the intended size. So much to say, so little space. . .
Almost done with Gods, Gate Keeper, and World Soul. Don't ask. I'm not telling what this really is until the book comes out. Patience, grasshopper.
Art Order for internal illos is with John Dollar
Ben Wootten is working on cover art sketches
Ed Greenwood is working on the City of Glorathon
Thorfinn Tait is plugging ahead on cartography (I'm jumping up and down until he sends me new updates).
Tomorrow: Lego Game movie break (though I'll be still working from 06:00 until noon)
Day After: start with Chapter 3 -- Planet Calidar Overview (History, Geography, Secrets of Calidar such as Seitha, Dread Lands, etc.) All this stuff is probably headed to the editor ahead of schedule.
Proceeding at about 1,500 to 2,000 words a day. It's crazy cold outside. Maybe that's a good thing.
