|Don't they look lovely?|
Having made my final amendments to the new edition of Welcome To Knight City introductory booklet for my planned Tuesday Knights' superhero RPG campaign, I pulled the trigger and ordered multiple copies from Lulu.
They arrived the other day and I must say, although they are my own work, I'm very impressed with how they turned out.
Hopefully, the Tuesday Knights will like them as well, and take the time to read through the short booklet, hopefully finding inspiration to create a unique and original Amazing Heroes character for whenever the campaign gets underway.
I've shown a PDF of the interior text to a couple of friends online and got back positive, and encouraging, feedback, which does good things for my confidence.
This week also saw the release to Kickstarter backers - and the general public - of the hardback print edition of my chosen game system Amazing Heroes (so I ordered myself a couple of copies, one for me and one for 'the table').
As to developments with my campaign setting, Knight City, since the announcement of the passing of Sean 'The Gentry' Gentry, publisher of HeroPress Comics, in mid-April, the only in-universe article has been a historical piece about the capture of wartime villain Doctor Satan.
I'm rather chuffed with how this article shaped up, as it blends real world events - the crimes of serial killer Dr Marcel Petiot - with a very old HeroPress creation, Le Défenseur, to come up with a Wild Cards-style 'alternate reality' story.
Please consider taking a peruse at the Knight City campaign blog, even though it is still very much a work-in-progress.
As I believe I said the other day, while the campaign hasn't really got going yet (although my godson Alec has already created a character), the world will continue to move on, more articles will be published (detailing the world and its history), more details will be added to the city etc
I want Knight City to feel like a living, breathing metropolis, that's too big for any one person to know every part of, but players - and other visitors - are encouraged to explore. And even, maybe, add to.
