    Thanks, Gary. The whole thing sounds great. I look forward to its publication (as with the Hall of Many Panes).

    I had hoped that the Hall of Many Panes would be hitting the shops soon, but the Trolls inform me that the art for the cover has not come in, so it looks like the launch of the boxed campaign-sized module will be winter-spring 2004. Such is the life of a game designer :rolleyes:

    Cheers,
    Gary

    About the only good thing I can say about that is that perhaps my finances will have recovered enough to afford it then.

    But of course, if it came out now, I'd find the money.

    I'm so looking forward to the HoMP. How long did it take your group to complete it, Gary?

    Cheers!

    Heh, Merric

    They took about 50 weeks to get through the whole of the module, and they generally played very expertly, so as to manage to get through some scenarios in an evening's play that I thought would take at least twice that. On balancem though, any veteran group should be able to manage it in 40-60 sessions of 3-4 hours playing time.

    Cheers,
    Gary

    Hi Col_Pladoh mate!

    I hope you and the family are keeping well?

    Any update on those 'hush hush' secret Graphic Novel adaptations of a certain Rogues adventures? Or is it still too early to talk about them?

    Hey Gary

    How hard do you find it to keep a solid game going and work on so many different projects? I mean, I barely have a once a week game going on over here with my job and stuff!

    Yeah, this is partly an excuse to say Hi somewhere else, but I am honestly curious, too

    Gary---

    Thanks for the extensive update on the Castle project. Do you plan to include the Black Reservoir in it? BTW, I finally put the story of that Castle Greyhawk exploration episode up on my site at http://www.greyhawkonline.com/grodog...eservoir1.html

    Argh!

    A sore subject that.

    Because of the poor market for comics, there is now a question of the project going forward

    I have a query into the licensee, but no response yet--just sent it on Monday. It has brought me to wonder about our not incluiding a "print or pay" clause in the contract, though, ala films. Option money being small, the publisher has no real incentive to go forward in many cases without such a requirement.

    If this goes into the dumper I will be most sad. Keep your fingers crossed that we can find a way for it to happen despite the bad market conditions.

    Cheers,
    Gary
