You people are awesome. I thought I'd have just a few orders at first. I should have this sooner. :D

I do want to hear what you think of it when it ships, all the good stuff, but especially the bad so I know what to fix for the next one. (or at least what we'll agree to disagree on. :p)

Probably. While I liked his stuff (especially his Monster Manual II work more than modules, really), if I was going to go for a real HE WAS THERE kind of guy, Erol Otus would be the man. Someone I know knows him (well, has hired him for album cover work) so I've sent little feelers out to see if this would be feasible.

I'd have two more pre-orders? :D

I've just spoken with our printer and he expects Pod-Caverns of the Sinister Shroom to be finished soon. So *cross fingers* those of you who have pre-ordered should have the module in a few weeks.

Thanks Joseph.  How'd you do on preorders (if you're willing to share)?

We had around 40 pre-orders. I had hoped for more, but as neither the publisher, author nor artists have any history related to TSR, I view that as not a bad number. I expect this to tic up as the quality of the material becomes apparent.

Received my copy yesterday! Haven't had a chance to read through it yet, but definitely like the layout - definitely reminiscent of the good ole days!  :D

I'm not a reviewer, but I'll definitely put in my two cents worth when I've gone through it. The cover is a good start though! Easy on the eyes!

That's really cool! I like the list at the bottom: "1 grain of folly..." Heh. Isn't that the best stuff in life? :)

Well got my 2 copies of The Pod Caverns, though have yet to read it. Should it be any good, I shall put in an order for the 2nd in the series and others to come after.
