Bad Juju sent from Lulu - Petty God of Printing

In his infinite wisdom Lulu, the God of all things black and white(with a bit of red), has cast out the Oubliette Issues 5-8 Compilation.  If you own a copy, hide it well before the Inquisition finds you.

Put another way, after happily printing and selling over 100 copies, Lulu has decided that he doesn't like the PDF file, and wants me to take a look at it.  I'm hoping I can fix it quickly, but if it requires hours of swearing and weeping over the computer keyboard, it may be some time before it's back up.  The good news is that I have a stash of print copies, so if anyone is desperate for a copy, I'm sure I can sort something out.

Final Symbol/Icon/Key Card Design

I've now finished the design for my Symbol cards, which will also be doubling up as business cards.  The images below are the proofs that I signed off this morning.  The other extras for the PoGI kickstarter are all ready to go, and I plan to fire off orders for them as soon as the Kickstarter funds are transferred on Monday.

Last Few Hours of the PoGI Kickstarter

As I type this there's just 3 hours left until the end of Pad of Geomorphic Intent Kickstarter.  The seventh stretch goal has now been met and funding is sitting at £2,348 which towers above the original £150 goal.  The picture below shows what backers get at the 8 pad level, which costs just £5 for UK backers, and £11 for Overseas backers.  The bottom image shows the add-ons that are available to backers.

Guess the Dungeon #26

This is the last dungeon in this series as the Kickstarter that it is promoting ends tomorrow.

For the last dungeon I have a portion of a building taken from an adventure.  It is quite likely that more copies of this adventure exist in print than any other adventure written.

And here's my last geomorph for a while.  I may pick up drawing these again on a weekly basis as eventually, when I've got 100 of them done, I'd like to release them as a low cost PDF.

Please Take One of My Business Cards

I've not had time to do any maps today as I've been working on a Map Icon card.  This was on of the Stretch Goals in the PoGI Kickstarter and I'm so pleased with it, that I think I'll actually use these as real business cards (just need to remember to put my name, email and web address on the back).

The back will also have faded versions of all the symbols, with a text key to say what they all represent.  All backers ordering two pads or more via the Kickstarter will get one of these (backers ordering 8 pads get 2).  The main idea behind them is to allow symbols to be traced by putting the card under the map sheet.

Guess the Dungeon #25

Here's today's map which offers both the traditional top-down and a side view, but where is it taken from?

And here's my map of a bridge over a chasm.

Guess the Dungeon #24

As the PoGI Kickstarter enters the last few days, there's just four more of these to go.

Can you name the dungeon that the map portion below is taken from?

And for my map I have a double sheet Throne Room.

Guess the Dungeon #23

Here's another difficult map portion to identify.

And below is my fourth geomorph featuring an underground waterway, along with a photo of all four together.

Guess the Dungeon #22

Here's today's map.  Can you name the source?

For mine I've done another sewer map.  I'll add a fourth tomorrow and post an image of how all four might be used together.

Original Petty Gods PDF

Gorgonmilk has posted a download link for the Original Petty Gods.  The PDF has been released by Peter Gifford who was responsible for its design and layout.  I'm so glad to see this released, and I will certainly get a copy of it printed and bound to enjoy while waiting for Gorgonmilk's expanded edition.
