Bluffside is Returning
Bluffside: City on the Edge, the popular d20-system sandbox-style city originally published by Mystic Eye Games a number of years ago is returning - this time for Castles & Crusades. Hal Greenberg spills the beans here: "I will get you the formal PR when I get it, but we are converting Bluffside to Castles and Crusades for Troll Lords. We are adding 12 new Places of Interest and some other neat stuff. this is a small project we are doing with just a 3 man crew from our end. We are hoping to have more Bluffside later this year, it will be adding some of the people we have talked to and some we have not yet. More news on Bluffie C&C edition, later this week and more info on the other stuff later in the year."

Troll Lord Games Press Release - Bluffside: City on the Edge
TLG Press Release
June 11, 2012
Legendary Bluffside: City on the Edge Joins Castles & Crusades!
TLG is proud to announce the return of a classic of the d20 era! Bluffside: City on the Edge!
Bluffside: City on the Edge, first released in 2001, quickly took the RPG community by storm! A brilliantly compact city setting Bluffside brought a world of useful, fun information to table tops everywhere. TLG has worked out a deal with our old friends Hal Greenberg and Doug Herring to publish a full print version of Bluffside City on the Edge for Castles & Crusades.
"Bluffside was my favorite d20 publication, barring Living Fantasy by Gary Gygax," remarked Stephen Chenault of TLG. This setting rolled out the print shop doors and landed right on my gaming table. It merged perfectly with Aihrde as presented in our own Codex of Aihrde (Erde at the time). Davis and I are both stoked see this classic join the ever growing list of Castles & Crusades titles."
Bluffside: City on the Edge Civilization is still picking up the pieces following an asteroid strike two hundred thousand years ago. The epicenter? Bluffside. Only 208 years after its rediscovery, Bluffside is a boom town boasting the most precious metal in the known world - adamantine. From the ancient ruins of Sem La Vah, to the vast Undercity, to the floating port of Sordadon, Bluffside: City on the Edge promises to become the home port for thousands of adventurers. Used as a stand alone city, or combined with other sourcebooks, thereby creating a modular world one great area at a time.
We are lining up cover artist Jason Walton of Myriad Studios to bring the City on the Edge back to life!
Hal Greenberg had this to say, "We (Doug and I) have taken a step back from game design for a while, what better way to come back then bring back one of our favorite projects for Castles and Crusades. We will be re-stating all of your old favorites and adding 12 new Places of Interest as well as designing 2 new NPC tables for their wealth and general reaction to your players for a quick and easy guide to make GMing in this city less stressful, easy and fun, which highlights some of the great features of C&C. We can not wait to hear the thoughts of the C&C fanbase once they get this giant city in their hands. For those that do not remember Bluffiside contains: new creatures, new races, dozens of new items and over 100 NPC's for the city to bring your campaign to life."
Hal Greenberg's own ground-breaking company Thunderhead Games originally published Bluffside: City on the Edge. In 2002 Thunderhead merged with Mystic Eye Games owned and operated by Doug Herring. Both veterans of the d20 wars bring all their flair and magic back to the gaming table.

That's great news. I tried to purchase the original Bluffside from a local bookstore. They said they had it in stock and would hold it for me, but when I showed up it was gone. It hadn't been sold; they suspected employee theft--because it was supposedly that much in demand.

The guys have set up a killer cover artist, so it will have the same stuff inside (that fits for C&C of course) and adding some new Places of Interest with the style and formatting of Troll Lords other quality books, I am very excited.
