Re: The Mystery at Port Greely!

Just picked up "The Mystery at Port Greely" from the printer! Now to start autographing the 300 S&N copies. Next, I will insert bookmarks, start the shrink-wrapping process, and send out invoices for shipping. Then packaging and shipping begins! All is going well. This Kickstarter campaign remains on schedule!  http://i67.tinypic.com/5cdjr5.jpg

Re: The Mystery at Port Greely!

Excellent. Before I did anything else, I had to get the orders that included original art out of the home office (currently the basement until my true office is finished [unfinished walk-up attic]). Paranoid that something bad could happen, I had to ship them straight away! Now I'm elbows deep in getting all the other orders ready. As you fellows know, I'm a nut with the bubble wrap, and also I am using adjustable boxes, not envelopes, to ship these orders. So, it's a process, but it's underway!

Re: The Mystery at Port Greely!

The book looks great! Thanks to all of you who purchased my original art. I hope they inspire some great gaming sessions in your home groups. I am extremely humbled and delighted to have been a part of this process.

Right now I am hard at work on the hardcover of the game, and have some really nice pieces finished. In total there will be ten class pics by me to supplement other artists work, and a ton of monster illos.

Again thank you all for your support. Well back to the drawing board... The ink is drying!

Re: The Mystery at Port Greely!

Thanks Morgan....The line work in the hardcover will be just as detailed. And hopefully my style will have improved a bit.

New From North Wind Adventures!

HYPERBOREA: The Mystery at Port Greely is now available for purchase at www.hyperborea.tv

+ + + + + + + + + + + +
Until about three years ago, the peculiar town of Port Greely was renowned as a prolific exporter of crustaceans. Then the Greely lobstermen severed all ties with outside partners. Subsequent attempts at renegotiation were shunned.

More recently, a small group of Fishmongers’ Guild representatives from the City-State of Khromarium has gone missing in Port Greely, and answers have been less than forthcoming. At present, the Guild seeks answers. It wants to know what became of its representatives, and it wishes to re-establish its lucrative partnership with the Port Greely lobstermen. Your party have been contracted to help resolve The Mystery at Port Greely.

Re: The Mystery at Port Greely!

I got mine yesterday - everything looks great!  My wife wore her shirt to work today. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/smile.png

I honestly don't know if this or Ghost Ship is Jeff's best adventure yet.  We'll call it a tie. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/wink.png

I'm not in any way denigrating Port Greely, but Ghost Ship still gets my vote.

Far too kind! Pictures of the lovely couple in their shirts, or it never happened!
