well its just so cool - its something i have wanted to see for ages. i will get another one at some point when i can afford to do so - ultra skint atm, but once rob gives the thumbs up that its all a go cos hes passed the point where things are good, i will get another then (for reading & playing purposes)

i think its great to see ppl putting their money where the mouth is....v.important to show support for a rule system from yesteryear.

There have been updates to the site.

Jason Braun artwork (Color) for Tower of Blood and his pencil sketches for those in the series.

Some more links will be posted soon for the RJK "About".

A sample of the module, the "Barrow Wight" with pict will be up as well by tomorrow or thursday at the latest.

We are also posting a link to the RJK interview so that folks can find it faster rather than digging through forum posts.

Lorne Marshall of Greyfoxe Studios is proceeding at a good pace on reproducing my World of Kalibruhn map and we should have that posted, with commentary soon.  The rendering looks absolutely fantastic, so I am waiting with great anticipation on the final... :)

Lance Hawvermale has taken upon the
mantle of primary editor for the Cairn of the Skeleton King project.  Many of you might be familiar with his work as he has been playing games for aeaons and involved in the RPG industry as writer, designer and editor during that time.  Allan Grohe will also assist with the final proofs from printer when these come available.

Peter Bradley notes that he will be finishing the maps tonight.  They are all rendered in blue Old School colors and look quite nice.

More to follow...

Rob Kuntz

PS--You guys are great, btw, and if I work my "magic" a second time it will be because of everyone efforting this, not just me.  BTW Al, I read your "Most Chaotic Moment" in RPG and LOL!  I will  be creating a forum at PPP after that and yours will be the first post, hopefully with more to follow.  It had me laughing for quite a spell.  :)

I want to add to this discussion.....

I am purchasing this product because I want to support Rob personally...both because he is an Acaeum member and because he is keeping the old battle standard flying.  

I would like Cairn of the Skeleton King even better if it was set up for 3.5 Edition.

Yes, but unless they sell very well, I think, they will be limited to PDF. At least that's what Rob wrote when he posted about the "D20 Editor" job being filled.

There's always to possibility of selling the d20 rights to Goodman Games or Paizo. And if it's done on the back of good1E sales, You'd be in a fairly strong negotiating position.


This week I've been mostly eating . . . minestrone soup.

 I could be wrong, but I was under the impression it was going to be sometime in July. I hope so, as I have some copies on order! :) Can't wait!

Per our chat earlier in the week, Rob was going to finish writing the ms. this week, then it was going to be edited while he haggled with the printer.  I'd expect it wouldn't be avaliable until GenCon-ish or so, assuming that the printer takes 2-3 weeks to print and ship, after which Rob will need to mail out the books.

edit:  That said, Rob hasn't stated a date, so you'll still have to wait awhile.  My dates above are speculative.

Let Rob have the ring, I'll take the Bracers.

Hey, I got it -- let's push him into sending out computer printout pre-pubs to those of us who preordered (in addition to our paid copies of course)! Maybe if we just chip in to cover the cost of the paper and ink cartridges...
