The Manor, Issue #7 is on Sale
I am really happy to announce that the seventh issue of The Manor is now on sale. I had a TON of help with this issue.
+Jim Magnusson who did this fantastic cover and contributed a batch of interior art. The guy draws crazy fast and crazy good. As soon as I saw this guy I knew I had my cover.
+Jarrod Shaw who came in out of no where, I think I spoke to him for about 5 minutes before I put him to work. He did a couple pieces of interior art for me. Don't go no where Jarrod, I'll be pinging you again.
+Chris C. poor guy has to game with me and then I put him to work. Chris has been in past issues of The Manor and this time that's his boy on the cover. He's collected a batch of nasty mirrors to put into your game. They will freak your players out.
+Johua De Santo submitted an interesting take on a Skinwalker class. A very cool old school class to add to your game. It has a nature/Native American vibe. It an easily fit into any ruleset.
+Boric Glanduum has added a article I'm very fond of. He's potion dealer harkens to the snake oil salesman. And I like that the potions can only be guaranteed for mostly fresh. I like it when magical items are not cut and dry. I like it when there is a little risk involved. Oh, and Boric has been bitten by the zine bug also. Heh, I warned him it would happen.
+j garrison allowed me to print a creepy adventure of his. I can't explain it, but when I read it, even though it is a fantasy adventure, I could see it be a sci-fi adventure. Plus, he did the art that is included in his adventure. I am always jealous when I see folks who and draw and write.
+Simon Forster, master map maker, has created a micro-adventure! It is cool! I was so glad when Simon asked if he could submit anything. I said how fast do you want your yes. I love the idea he weaved in, in such a small space.
+Ken H another one who suffers to game with me on Mondays. Ken returns to The Manor once again with a very cool Haiku featuring the mind flayer.
So you can see there is a lot of great stuff in this issue. I packed a ton of it in the 24 pages.
I'll update the bundle package to include Issue #7 sometime this weekend. I'll also check through the PDF version and put it up on RPGNow and Lulu this weekend also.
Just a note for Manor subscribers, thanks a ton for your support. This is the last issue of your subscription. You guys really helped prop up this zine in the beginning and I just want to say I appreciated your trust in me to getting it completed. Thanks!
