We have the copies of NotBS in hand!  I think they turned out nice.  The first chance to get a copy is at the Acaeum Members Dinner on Wednesday night.  I will bring a small stack of bagged/boarded copies pulled straight from the case.  The initial public release is at the OSR booth at Gen Con when it opens Thursday morning.  They will be available for sale to the world at diecastgames.com early Friday morning.

I believe Jeff Easley will be at the Dark Sword Miniatures booth and Diesel will be in the art show area if you want to get your copies signed.

Here are a few (fuzzy) pics of the module to give you an idea of what it looks like:

Looks good!

Caption under the cover art reads:  Hello Boys, I'm lost ...can you help me??

Answer:  Well hell yes we can help you!!!

A challenge for the rest of my Acaeum brothers to add a caption for the cover art.

Oh... my God! This place if hellishly hot!

How can you boys stand to be in all that horrid metal armor with that blazing fireball right behind us?

Hey there stud.... i'm having heat flashes. I need a fire hose to cool me down!

I guess that I will have to wait until Friday as well ... *sigh* ... I hope that we can purchase more than one copy at a time. What is the initial print run of this module, please?  :D

Thank you - Paul

Shawn and Devon,

Thanks for hooking me up with my copy of the NotBS - read it on the plane home Sunday.  I especially like Allen's anti-paladin "side adventure".  :-)

Also, picked up the red copy at the OSR booth.  

Thanks again,

~throwi
