    Okay, the cover is 99.9% finished, I just have a problem with the lighting on Thrin's breastplate (so I came online to check some armour images) and then its done. Say 10 minutes to complete, 10 more for scanning (2 parts) and maybe 30-40 minutes on photoshop piecing the two halves together and making sure there are no obvious join marks.
    99.9% finished, but you still have 50-60 minutes until it's done. Does that mean it took 850 hours to draw in the first place?

    In any case, I'm glad you're progressing.

    So...how soon after pre-ordering is available will advanced copies be sent to editors, et al? I'm asking purely for intellectual curiosity, of course.

    I told Christian Janke I hoped it would come before my birthday (October). I've been disappointed with that same guess in the past, but this could be the year.

    Are we going to have a race to see who can pre-order first?

    Hey all!

    Okay pre-ordering is now available, and everything should be working fine.

    http://www.enworld.org/shop/index.ph...ublisher_id=84

    http://shop.enworld.org/index.php?pr...ortalsHandbook

    I should note that there are no previews or contents pages up yet (so if you click on those you will only get the cover), but I will attend to the previews in a few days or so.

    Playtest documents will be sorted in a few days time.

    Let me know what you think of the cover in terms of layout and illustration.

    Maybe I missed something... I know I pre-ordered, but I get nothing when I click download. Is that what's supposed to happen, or is something wrong? Does pre-order mean 'pre-pay', i.e. pay now, but wait for the product?

    That's how I read things, at the store and here in the thread. This seems basically to be a way to raise cash to get the product out the door. We'll be able to download it as soon as something is actually loaded into the "slot" the GameStore is holding for the file. I, myself, got a transaction error to my chagrin; I emailed the store about it and will hopefully get things sorted out soon.

    Cover's very nice BTW- what's the dragon he's going after, is that Apep (or an amazing Apep-like substance)?

    Beta Release goes on sale at ENWorld. The Beta release will include all the text, the finished cover and hopefully close to one quarter of the interior illustrations.
    I got confused by this. I thought this was the Beta release, since it just went on sale. Oh well... I've waited what? 4 years? I can wait another week or so.

    Yes, hence the discount for pre-ordering.

    As soon as I upload the text file, you will get that, then when I update that with the full art pdf you will get that too.

    However, I don't want to deceive anyone here. So remember...

    All you get for pre-ordering is a discount!

    So if thats not palatable for anyone, just wait for a few weeks.

    Oh, that's fine. Like I said, I got confused by your website.
    Godspeed, UK.

    Never say never, but I'll need time to mull it over.

    Thats Apep, the Egyptian Snake-Deity of Fire.

    I was trying to make Apep cobra-like, but because I already had the shapes in place, I needed his head coming up and then down slightly. For the life of me I just could not get the cobra 'hood' shape of the head to work well at all at that angle.

    The fiery breath I am seeing as half divine (hence the partial writhing serpent look), half fire.

    I wanted the overall painting to be dominated by red/orange/yellow. Both Grimoire and Chronicle use the same design but the paintings will be primarily Green (Grimoire) and Blue/Purple (Chronicle).

    I still think I must have subconsciously been channeling the cover art for the original D&D Immortals Boxed Set.

    When the period of testing is finished and errors are corrected, I actually think I will spend the extra cash to get Ascension printed... First time I am doing this with an RPGPDF. Looking forward to the crunchy stuff now.

    Regretfully I'm also getting an error at checkout.

    I'll see if I can't get something worked out.

    Hey Eń matey!

    hope you are keeping well? How was your time in California...a bit hotter than you are used to I suspect?

    Noticed you have been a bit more active lately, and over at the WotC boards too.

    When I have some money I plan on doing this myself.
