Have a question about Maze of the Blue Medusa? A continually-updated FAQ is below…

Where do I buy a copy? http://satyr.press. The hardcover is completely sold out everywhere. Buy the PDF: http://gum.co/motbm-pdf.

Is the book sold on DrivethruRPG? Yep! http://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/195785/Maze-of-the-Blue-Medusa--Deluxe-PDF and http://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/195783/Maze-of-the-Blue-Medusa--Simple-PDF

What's the book look like? It's a 7.5" wide by 9" tall smyth sewn (for long-lasting durability) hardcover, and features: 288 full-color pages; full-color endpapers featuring tables, maps, and art; foil stamping on the front cover and spine; hand-tipped debossed images on the front and back covers; a jet black cover cloth; FSC-certified interior paper stock; and a bookmark ribbon. It was printed in Canada by Friesens.

Will I be able to read the simple PDF on my tablet? Yep: if you buy the PDFs, you can download PDFs in two formats: one with the book's spreads as its pages, and the other with its single pages as its pages.

What's the Deluxe PDF, exactly? A PDF version of the Maze that's hyperlinked throughout for maximum ease-of-use and speed-of-exploration. It's basically the PDF made for GMs and thorough explorers. It's available now at http://satyr.press.

Is it compatible with my favorite system? The Maze is system-agnostic, so you can run it easily with oldschool D&D, 5th Edition, DCC, The Black Hack, Labyrinth Lord, LotFP, Swords & Wizardry, etc… More info right here: https://plus.google.com/+MatthewSchmeerMFA/posts/LDru3ZrSidv

I don't know… Is the book getting good reviews? It's the most acclaimed big dungeon ever published: http://dndwithpornstars.blogspot.com/2016/07/in-case-you-havent-heard.html

Will you reprint the book? Nope! Not in the foreseeable future.

Is the book available in French? Funny you ask—YES. Black Book Editions (http://www.black-book-editions.fr/) is working on a translation now.

Does the book have a trailer? Of course: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BTru2-bZdI8

Again, folks: thank you so much for your curiosity and support. And if you want a hardcover copy, I recommend you get on it sooner rather than later.

I love the Black Hack, and it's back.

Two things.

1. I got paid to write the narrative content for a tabletop miniatures wargame that's on Kickstarter. You can read my bits here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/jgfranzen/immortal-kings/description

2. Remember the Bondye Reparatè from the Maze of the Blue Medusa? It's really weird, but they've been showing up at my door. Like, I'll be making a sandwich, and I'll turn around and see a horrible grandmother face but then there'll be some cigars and a note on my front porch. Will keep you updated. #MotBM

I'm selling Kingdom Death: Monster, the 1.5 rulebook, and all the original expansions. Got it all at Gencon for $1200, selling for $700. Caveat: you've gotta pick it all up from Santa Fe, New Mexico. If you're interested or know someone who might be, message me!

The French edition of Maze of the Blue Medusa is nearly done, say the French at Black Book Editions. Get ready to frappez des choses avec votre hache, or whatever! #MotBM

Good game-related news coming soon. In the meantime, keep rolling.

After I got home from GenCon, I remembered that I'd donated a copy of Maze of the Blue Medusa to a small press to auction off. They're doing that now. It's the last unused copy available to purchase, and all the money goes to a great small literary publishing co. Auction goes live at midnight: http://www.thecupboardpamphlet.org/maze-of-the-blue-medusa

I forgot we made the best dungeon book, then I saw this and remembered.

Just ran D&D for six 7th and 8th graders. They were more generous to each other than every group of adults with which I've played.
