+Milton Murphy, I could only find one of the two errors (the other is a missing comma), and have corrected it in this version.

Thanks for the 11th hour fix.

Hi all,

A quick update...I'm doing one more pass on the whole document. As soon as I'm finished with this 436 page beast, it'll be released. I mentioned something about a snazzy cover in my last update, but if we don't have something by the time my final pass is done then we'll go with what we got.

I'm pinging a few folks on release channels (my initial thoughts are DTRPG) so if there's any suggestions, comment here.

And pretty much that's it. Looking forward to getting this wrapped and getting onto the urban setting.

Cheers,
MM

Hi all,

A few updates...

...Jed and Ian are working on some refinements (working around Real Life stuff) to the (awesome) map.

...There are a few items to finish up for the content release and Jed is working on those. This includes a punch-list of small changes and the larger question about the a "cover design". I'd like to have something that looks nice in case someone chooses to have it printed on demand but I'm not going to let this hold us up too much longer.

...Speaking of which, if you haven't had a chance to check out the latest version of the Eilean Dubh document check it out (link below.) In particular to ogling its Role Playing Goodness, you can do a few reads of your sections and let us know if you see anything. We're not going to aim for "perfect" before releasing, but this is the time to report anything you see that needs to be fixed.

...Lastly, we're at 221 members! Welcome to all the folks who've joined since I last sent out my welcome message (https://plus.google.com/u/0/+MiltonMurphy/posts/TPzzNmkaJch)

Getting closer! As always please let me know if you have any questions, comments, etc.

Regards,
MM

A long overdue update but with an exciting something to show. As you know I long wanted to have some version of The Black Isle map that was a bit more "spiffy" than the hex map we've been working off of. +Jed McClure and an artist friend of his, +ian christy , have made that come to pass! Feast your eyes on the result. I think it's glorious and it will become a part of the release document. Ian's portfolio site is http://www.scruffcheek.com/ and I encourage folks to check him out.

Speaking of the document, the latest beta draft has been posted to the beta draft folder. I further encourage everyone to review it because we're getting into the homestretch now, somewhat after the stated release but Life Happens (tm). Link to the beta folder is below.

This version has some editing and foreward material by myself and +Erik Tenkar

Report anything that needs to be corrected or looked at and, as always, comments or questions welcome.

Cheers,
MM

I'm new to the group but we are publishing adventures for the Tenkar's Tavern Crate. I would be more than happy if you'd consider them for inclusion in your project.

I am also producing hex tiles for the crate. I do print runs every six months and am happy to produce hex tiles that could be used for your settings. I already have dungeon tiles. My next print run will be jungle tiles and pyramid tiles. If you have suggestions for tiles that would complement your campaign maps just let me know. I also have an online hex viewer tool where I could implement a custom map at www.Hex20.com.

I am also delivering a full plaster cast Tenkar's Tavern terrain kit in the next crate. If you need buildings designed for your scenarios we are happy to create companion terrain kits for you.

Eilean Dubh has a restaurant...

In the course of working on my Tenkar's Landing contribution, I created a class that probably adds little value for most people but was a lot of fun to make. (It's a part of the entry for Hex 22.12.) I posted the class on my blog today and figured I'd share here in case others are interested...

Time marches on and June 4th has come and gone. Still, we're almost there. Jed's polishing and others are submitting the last few update. To remind, we expanded the timeline a bit because we had a flurry of new/revised content coming in and I declared this to be "A Good Thing" (tm). Look for the penultimate release to hit the drop box soon.

As always, let me know if you have questions.

Your humble Catherder-in-Cheif

We have new members and so my periodic "Welcome!"

To those who are relatively new members, no matter how you found this place, welcome to the group! See the pinned comments (that always appear at the top of the community) for more information and don't hesitate to ask questions if you have them. In brief, we are working on a gazetteer of sorts to bring life to the island of Eilean Dubh (the Black Isle) home and hearth to the bustling city of Tenkar's Landing (and its surroundings.) This is a crowd-sourced project and the first book is close to being finished. There are others planned for the future once this one is out the door and there will be more information forthcoming in a few weeks. Please let me know if you have questions and, again, Welcome!
