Preview: Dolmenwood Campaign Map

Anyone who's been following the growth of the Dolmenwood campaign setting over the last five years (yep, it's really five years!) is no doubt familiar with the referee's map of the setting. This map was created in the very early days of Dolmenwood — before the first issue of the Wormskin zine, in fact — and has served as the only map of the setting since then. As part of the development of the upcoming Dolmenwood Player's Book and Dolmenwood Campaign Book, I knew that I'd be needing a new map. In the five years since the original map was created, Dolmenwood...

The Dolmenwood Logo Unveiled

Following the recent announcements about all of the exciting Dolmenwood products coming up this year (the Dolmenwood Player's Book and the Dolmenwood Campaign Book), I have another exciting development to share! I just received the final design of the Dolmenwood logo, created by Tim Hastings (Mindkillerink)! This is the logo which will grace the covers of the hardcover Dolmenwood books. I don't have cover art for the books just yet, so I can't share a preview of how the logo will look on the covers, but here it is in the context of the work-in-progress title page for the play test...

Dolmenwood Campaign Book Now to be Accompanied by Dolmenwood Player's Book

Anyone who's been following the development of the Dolmenwood setting over the last few years has doubtless heard of the plans for the upcoming Dolmenwood Campaign Book. Today I have a major announcement on that topic... There Will Now be Two Books, Published as a Set!
