Hump-day Hildebrandt... His Backpack's Got Jets...

Well, last week was hectic.  You may have noticed the lack of any writing.  I noticed the lack of most things that relax me.  The holiday added extra things to my "to do" list, on top of the unrelenting busy season at the real job.  If those weren't enough, my child was ill the entire week.  I didn't get any writing or gaming time in whatsoever and the regular game was cancelled.  That said, I have gotten some offline work completed this week and I'm almost ready to roll out the first "I Give a Fluff."  Having written that, some other travesty is going to pop up and prevent it.  Anyway, enjoy Boba Fett delivering Han Solo to Jaba.

Hump-day Hildebrandt - Cap

Well, unfortunately for the blog, work continues to run late and hellish.  That said, I've also been pushing myself on getting work done on my dungeon/mega dungeon "Treacherous Caverns of the Brigand King."  I'll get a full post up about that when things settle down on the work front a bit.  Until then, I celebrate the release of "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" with this piece by Greg Hildebrandt.

Hump-day Hildebrandt: The Grimm Side of Things

I've been really busy at the real job, plus writing some stuff.  I might get a chance to share this weekend.  Here's a Tim Hildebrandt pencil sketch straight out of the Brothers Grimm.

R.I.P. Tramp

We keep losing the originators. One of the artists that helped define what D&D is has passed away.  +Charles Akins has confirmed the death of Dave Trampier.  It is very unfortunate, as he was about to re-enter the hobby after years away from it.

City State Kickstarter and Shaking Off the Plague

You may have noticed that I blogged not one thing last week.  Not even a Hump-day Hildebrandt post.  I was sick in a terrible way last week.  I only went to work on Monday and was laid up until Saturday night.  The combination of meds I was given made for some interesting hallucinations though. Anyhoo... I couldn't bring myself to sit up and type or work, but I did get in two full seasons of the "X-files" (which may or may not have contributed to the hallucinations.)   Anyway, I'm up and running again.  This weekend I will be running my "once a month" game at Warriors 3 Comics & Games in Wayne.  I'm very excited about that.   We should be able to get the characters through the "intro to old school" adventure and in to Saltmarsh to begin the "U" series this week!  I also think that I'll be able to get my normal Friday C&C game in the Lost Lands going again this week, so I have lots of gaming goodness happening here.  

Late this week or early next week I promise that you will see that "I Give A Fluff" piece that I promised.  Illness postponed that one a bit.

By the way, you probably already know but Judges Guild has launched a Kickstarter to reprint City State of the Invincible Overlord!  Go ahead, click it and pledge.  I did.  I'm in for a hardcover when it's all done.  Did I mention that the maps are being redone by +Rob Conley?  Pretty awesome.  You'll notice in that picture that it says "Pathfinder compatible" but also says "Universal Fantasy Supplement."  I was curious so I went to the source and asked what was up.  Well, this baby's coming in two flavors, kind of like a Frog God product.  You can get it in Original Recipe or Extra Crunchy.  That is to say, you can get it with the original stats that were in it when it first came out (for the OSR folks) or you can buy it stated up for Pathfinder.  The choice will be given once it funds.

Well, that's all folks.

Good night, Wesley.  Sleep well.  I'll most likely kill you in the morning.

Movie Night... Mazes & Monsters

Sorry folks, I've caught something fierce.  I tried to get some of my new fluff piece done, but I'm working at a snails pace with how I feel.  So, instead, let's watch Mazes & Monsters.
