Crossroads Region Gazetteer Update

Just a quick update on what we are working on...

From the forum:

The Crossroads Region Gazetteer... yes, still at it. Day in day out, penciling, inking, editing, layout... on and on...

This gazetteer is going to be at least 412 pages and the biggest project I have ever been involved with in my entire life... and may I say that I hope I am never faced with such a massive tome again...other than a novel that is.

The Crossroads Region is a very densely populated area, with a lot of conflicting factions, independent and nomadic communities. Other regions are sparsely populated and more inhospitable, and will lead to much smaller source books.

Still, I am enjoying the process and think this is going to be one hell of a sourcebook.

Here is a quick photo from what I was just inking before I made this post. It's for the full page spread to Heroes and Outlaws of the region. The near naked woman, which I need to fix, is actually a digital being...

More updates soon:

As for the actual update, we are looking at at least another month before we get all the interior art inks done and inserted in the layout and the last edit back. Working double time on this, and sadly neglecting my social media outlets!

Danger:: Spikebacks in the area

Hi Wastelanders,

 If you haven't already heard, we've got a new free Creature of the Apocalypse for ya...

The size of a grizzly bear, the vaguely humanoid Spikeback is a genetically engineered bio-weapon of old - which has evolved.

Now, exhibiting an occasional cybernetic implant or mutation, they move about the wastes of The Mutant Epoch in packs, and gorge on the flesh of other living things. Bad tempered, ravenous and cruel, this freaky creature of the apocalypse is our third nasty in this series.
