CHANGE OF PLANS!

Due to a recent announcement, my Gaslamp/Gothic/Weird Western theme is temporarily semi-suspended.  I plan on releasing a mixture of more monsters as well as some player options, (possible) alternate rules and magical items.  I’ll release what I have in a few days before this train goes from steam to lightning.  That’s right, Eberron content!  Also, I say semi-suspended because Eberron kinda channels that gaslamp setting sensibility in a few ways.

Wizards gave the A-OK to drop their news early, so I figured I’d help share the fun.  In short, I’ve been contacted by Wizards of the Coast to help craft their latest product, a world-related expansion book as well as tie-in adventure.  While I can’t say too much, all I can say is that Spelljammer is indeed confirmed.  On top of that, I’m helping the write the sections on it.  As for plot, it will be an overarching multiverse story, akin to the previous modules… but on a much grander scale.  I’m not allowed to disclose further on that though.
