Website UP -- Excerpts -- Prize -- Worlds Page

Yes, I buckled down for about 10 hours and updated my website. My webmistress is questioning all this work and the cost effectiveness. But I do like to offer a lot of content for people roaming around my site and my worlds.

In any event there is a SMALL TEASER for Heart Change (note right now it says Cut Scene but it IS in the book. I'll see if I can fix it myself). It comes from chapter 4, I think.

There is also a CUT scene from ECHOES IN THE DARK. Both are under READS.

The WORLDS page has a color topographical map of northern Lladrana to the Dark's Nest.

Free Your Artist brings you a quote from Dr. Seuss this month, and the monthly divination is biorhythms.

The contest is for a postcard that is now discontinued of Nene Thomas's work. It's not up there right now (should be soon), but is above.

May you enjoy your own company today.

I like the website. It's easy to navigate to different areas. BTW, those are some awesome maps. What do you use to design them?

Marina, thanks, I have lots of Fams in this book so a couple are barely onstage, Beadle has his own scenes.

Dave, the worlds themselves are by Fractile Terrains (somewhere in this blog, under Celta, or maybe on my website, is a comparison to my drawn Celta and how I modified a "world" to become like it). The rest are Campaign Cartographer add ons. Both Campaign Cartographer and Fractile Terrains software are done by Pro Fantasy which can be found at profantasy.com

I thought they looked familiar. I picked those up from ProFantasy last year and have played with them a bit. I didn't want to guess wrong, in case there are other great mapping tools out there. Anyways, great maps.
