Beyond here lie dragons

Road map to 2005 Gods & Monsters

Jerry Stratton, December 4, 2004

Okay, so I’m not at GenCon today. No free t-shirt yet, sorry. Instead I’m sitting here in my apartment reading about the Vikings and about swashbucklers, and outlining what needs to be done before the 2005 edition of Gods & Monsters goes to press.

  • A new and unique pantheon for the Haikiutl (in Highland, a society across the Great Mountains to the west), for the Divine Lore book.
  • A decision on whether or not to include Training Points in the main rules.
  • Finalize the armor section in Arcane Lore.
  • Finalize the changes to the skills listing in Arcane Lore.

There will of course also be a few new spells, new spirits, and new creatures at various intervals.

You can also look forward to seeing one more new adventure in 2005, a bit stranger than the others, “The Valley of the Blue Sun”, and, if I can get the fonts working right, a sourcebook for the world of Highland.

In the meantime, I recommend reading Lovecraft’s “The Dream Quest of Unknown Kadath” if you haven’t read it yet.
