Minor update and some pimping...

Ok, so I sent off 4 stats to the proof readers. I got the vehicle write up done, as well as a headquarters for another villain. Just need to write up some minions for various other bad guys, and all the stats are done.

I finally settled on a cover idea, and finalized that concept with the artist. It is going to emulate an old Justice League cover from the Keith Giffen era.

The artist whose art I am using agreed to do the vehicle and hq for me, at a very reasonable price. So, I thought I'd pimp his own work. Darrel Miller is an artist. He did all the art for the rpg Supers!, but Simon Washburne (who also wrote Barbarians of Lemuria, a great Sword & Sorcery style fantasy rpg). Darrel does his own Supers! related releases, and is the most prolific supporter of the game.

All the art I'm using came from clip art packs he released of art from his Public Domain Supers line. Each one of these (14 in total as of today) feature heroes and villains from the Golden Age of Comics, all of whom exist in the Public Domain. He also has 3 adventures for Supers!, one of which is free on the Beyond Belief Games site. He also has clip art packs with all the art from Public Domain Supers, for people to use with their own projects (like I am). Check out his RPGNow product page here

Also, Aldo Regaldo, known as aka Dragonfly on many forums, has released his first product, The Freedom Ring, for both Supers! and BASH! The Freedom Ring is a super hero team dating back to the Golden Age, and besides being an interesting group of heroes, is very ethnically diverse. The book also features one villain (the aquatic Skana), and the follow up, The Iron Gauntlet, will be nothing but foes from the same universe as The Freedom Ring. You can check out TGI (Aldo's "company") on RPGNow here

Last, but far from least, is HAZARD Studio, run by Walt Robillard. HAZARD runs all the rpg material for Zenith Comics currently, as well as his own Type Casting products, written by Ben Norman, the BASH guru. Walt is also an artist himself, and also does layout work. He did the layout for Adversaries: The Triad for me. Check out HAZARD Studio on RPGNow here

So that's all for now. More to come....
