Nope, this is from James's Subscribers' Letter which has posted a letter from Robert Bledsaw II.

Do you know for what system/edition(s)?

Any idea if the Tegel product is the one that Melan worked up for Necromancer that never got published?

Too bad there is no announcemnt on the JG web site.  Has Bob Bledsaw, III given up on Web Master duties at their (relatively) new site?

Speaking only from the Subscribers' Letter.

Doesn't say what system.
Do not think this is Melan's work (would still love to see that work though)
Doesn't say anything about the Judges Guild website.

Sort of reserved on any finer detail as I wonder if this news was to have been released.  Course says nothing in the letter to keep this amidst Subscribers and those in the know.  I'll let James or Bob comment further if they wish.

Did James mention a projected release date for these?
I know he has been saying that sales are slow so he is having a cash flow issue that is even slowing down his ability to ship items.

Won't say what #1304 is, and don't know what # Sea Kings will be. Have been allowed to post these images from Bob himself marking them as teasers since they may change.
There will be official announcements on the Judges Guild sites soon. All four of these products may not be offered POD, but will at least be done in PDF.

:D  :D  :D

Oh I could just fall to pieces.  So what edition?  Does it matter?  I will take it.  But, I would prefer Pathfinder/3.5.

How about just in OD&D format?  Actually, the system matters little.  Judges Guild's generic system was just as impossible to decode as any other alternate system.

What I can't figure out is why not print on demand?

Night of the Living Rumps.

I was hoping for a spelling error of some sort.  Hard to think of a worse name.  :?

Well it is a work in progress.  I am sure nothing will be finalized for a while yet so there is still hope that it will be available from Lulu when it is released.  It is a bit odd not to go down the POD route when it seems like just about everyone is doing it nowadays.

As for the title....the Rumps lived in Tegel.  And apparently they all become undead when they die.  So there you go.  :roll:

I have to think POD will be option.  JG is selling PDF on DTRPG.  As Necromancer Games fans know, we are still waiting to hear when DTRPG will have their POD option up and running for NG's last three releases.

Put me down for a full set of PDFs on the day of release.

True, for old-timers revision does not matter that much.  I convert just about anything on the fly anymore.  Well, NPC's  must be done before hand if they are crazy customized.  If not, I match up something out of Ultimate NPC's.  I love that resource.  I wish there were more.  But in any case, I would like to see this material released with more to follow, regardless of edition/format.

I have brought this up before over on the NG boards, but why cant we have the 3.5 material that was ready for the press over at NG released?  If all but the art was complete, I have all the art I need.  I would like to see what they did with Tegel Manor.   Does Bob control that?

Sorry to hijack. Never been to the NG boards. By why in NG no longer publishing? Is it lack of writing? Lack of money? Lack of interest? Lack of sales? Lack of conviction? Or what?

Yes....all of the above.

NG stopped the presses with the annnouncement of the 4e release.  NG waited for the OGL at the open to 4e and as it dragged on, it just lost steam.  Clark does not even post there anymore.  NG posted the last three projects at DTRPG as PDF's.  There is speculation, but thats about it.

That raises the question, is their IP up for sale? Does the ownership of NG product remain with NG or are they owned and shared among titled authors? It is product that should be published and I see no reason why it can't be published as-is provided the d20 symbol and OGL Statement are altered.

Unfortunate.  Necromancer published, IMHO, some of the best D20 items available.  Rappan Athuk, Tomb of Abysthor, City of Brass, Necropolis, CSIO and of course, the Wilderlands box set.  I just grabbed The Lost City of Barakus the other day and although I have only read through a bit of it, I have pretty much decided it was a good pickup (for $10 doesnt hurt either  :) .)
