Hmm, this package is suspiciously book-shaped!

What could be inside? Why, it’s the printer’s proof for Masks: 1,000 Memorable NPCs for Any Roleplaying Game!

Look at the spine on this beast! It’s gigantic!

Here’s a two-page spread featuring the artwork of Chris Reach:

…and another featuring the artwork of Avery Liell-Kok:

For good measure, how does Masks stack up (hah!) against our first book, Eureka: 501 Adventure Plots to Inspire Game Masters, and the D&D 4e Player’s Handbook?

I was too sick to post these yesterday, when the proof arrived, but I’m more or less better now and I had to share. Despite having done this once before, and having seen the love that was poured into this book over the past 10 months, part of me still went “Hey, this is a real book!” when I first opened the package.

Preorders open July 5th. w00t!
