Rough Sketch of the Ancient United States Map for Barbarians of the Ruined Earth

Good day everyone!

I hope you are well and safe.

We are getting every closer to Barbarians of the Ruined Earth being complete! There five illos still coming in.  I’ve asked Angie if she’d be keen to do an illo for the back of the book and she was, so she started sketching that out last night.

With Barbarians coming to a close, Matt Hildebrand has begun working on the layout for Slave Mines of Vindicus the Terrible so I can get to commissioning art for that (yay!).

One of the stretch goals we hit in the kickstarter was a 18″ by 24″ poster map of the ruined United States.  Kelvin and I had a couple of chit chats and he came up with a great design and I went to work populating it.

I’ve gotten all the names nailed out (you can find them below the illo), now I’m gonna come up with some descriptive sentences for each, like I did for the Western Sands plot point area in the book.

I just wanted to share this.  I’m looking forward to seeing where my brain takes me on this one:)

Be well.

I am a History major attending a community college until I can get more financial aid and attend a four year school. I am living in NJ with my girlfriend who is currently wrapping up on obtaining her PhD in Toxicology. I love Star Wars, Role-playing, video games, working out, reading, writing, and hanging with my girlfriend, dog (Perfect), and two kittens (Birch and Brambles). My main focus on this site will be my discussion of Role-playing games and ideas and hopefully contribute something worth a damn.

    Well, I already knew I was getting a copy, but that just seals the deal right there
