Yesterday I bragged about my Mythoard haul. What I didn't tell you is I also got a copy of The Ruins of Haunted Hill written by Patrick Bird and illustrated +Fred Dailey. They created 50 copies Ruins of Haunted Hill for Save vs. Hunger Convention, to donate to a food bank. Love that.
I believe it was Fred who put out the word that he had a couple copies left and asked if there were any takers. Adventure. Zine! Fun. I raised my virtual hand quickly and high. I may have even said "ohh, ohh" a couple of times. All they asked is to donate a fiver to a local food bank. Since I do what I do for work I have a lot of interaction with my food bank, not only did I donate I got them two volunteers for the next couple of months.
I haven't had a chance to read through it yet. So I can't write about the adventure itself. However I have flipped through it and I'm now a huge fan of Fred Dailey's artwork. Many of his pictures are breaking out of their framework giving the picture more depth, just like the cover above.
I wanted to thank Fred and Patrick for the adventure and its made me think of acting on a charity I would like to work with.
