After consulting with the legendary shipping master of Black Blade Publishing, +Jon Hershberger, Tony and I have set postage rates for The Twisting Stair #1 as follows:

All prices are in United States Dollars (USD), and we may need to change them with issue #2 (which will probably be bigger than the 16 pages in issue #1), or if I go to the post office and find that our due diligence didn't quite pan out for some reason.

If you have already placed an order or inquiry, Allan will send you a final total using the above guidelines tomorrow.

New orders can be placed by sending $4 per issue and using the above postage guidelines to calculate postage due. You can submit payment via Black Blade Publishing's Paypal account (we'll eventually set up TTS with its own Paypal account) and send payment to tacojohndm@yahoo.com. If you would like to buy more than 2 copies of The Twisting Stair #1, you'll have to request a postage quote by emailing thetwistingstair@gmail.com, then Tony or Allan will get back to you.

FYI, if you're ordering just copies of TTS, Allan will ship those orders; if you're ordering copies of TTS as well as other Black Blade Publishing books, then Jon is happy to combine shipping for those orders.

If you have any questions, please post them here, or via the Google+ community at https://plus.google.com/u/0/communities/106374654367308480302 or the Facebook Page at https://www.facebook.com/The-Twisting-Stair-188990931592220/ or email us at thetwistingstair@gmail.com.

Thanks!

"It basically forced/tricked my brain into designing imaginative content. It has both suggestive detail (in the layout) and corresponding lack of detail that I cannot resist mentally filling in. Why does a portcullis block the long room right off the starting nexus, and why is there an alternate route into it? What would a row of small semicircular alcoves be used for, in an area cut off from all other areas, except by way of secret doors? And most overtly: What kind of space would fill the geomorph areas? Even if I do not actually key this map (and I am getting close), it still inspired my brain to create some set-pieces I can use in some other dungeon."
