We’ve been quiet about our upcoming second book, Masks, for too long — it’s time to share another preview!
This is actually a two-parter. First, the sexiest part: the cover. It really needs no further introduction — we think it’s gorgeous, and we hope you do, too!
You’ll also notice that our original title has been changed — not “Masks,” but the tagline. The full title of the book is now Masks: 1,000 Memorable NPCs for Any Roleplaying Game.
We think that packs a lot more useful info into the same space: “Memorable” because Masks features so much more than just a brief description of each NPC — these characters will really stand out for your players — and “Any Roleplaying Game” because this is a truly universal supplement. I can’t think of an RPG that couldn’t make use of Masks.
On the progress front, the book is written, all of the artwork is done, the layout template is done, and editing and proofreading should be wrapping up in June. We’re shooting to open preorders in July, and have the book available at GenCon.
June will also bring samples of the text, including NPCs from all three broad genres: fantasy, sci-fi, and modern. Stay tuned!
One more credit to Darren…
Darren is also the guy who did the Eureka PDF, and if you loved just how amazingly useful the PDF was in terms of hyperlinks, bookmarks, etc…that is who is responsible for that as well.
Definitely looking forward to pre-ordering this. July can’t come soon enough!
Looks great! Can’t wait to preorder it!
