The Crossroads Region Gazetteer update:: Coming in Days!

So, while aiming for an October 30th release, we may need to bump it a week and half to accommodate our distributor, which is a smart move.At any rate, I can't believe this mammoth book is almost ready to go to press and pdf. I've been at this day after day for many months and am eager to see it on the shelves and onto game tables. Here is the slightly updated cover and following blurb.
   Will McAusland

Adventure and Exploration await!

Grab your gasmask, your knee pads, crossbow and blade! Suit up into your junk armor and survival packs and get ready to dive into a world of high adventure. Welcome to the Crossroads Region!
It is the year 2364. The Tainted Sea continues to recede, exposing patches of the former megalopolis of Los Angeles. Few areas in the brutal world of The Mutant Epoch are so densely populated nor so embroiled in factional warfare as The Crossroads Region. Here, your heroes will explore old war zones, ruined cityscapes, reef-locked relic ships, stinking bogs and toxic bomb craters. Seek the bounty on the dreaded outlaw-cannibal Appro-Mortica, recharge your power cells at Array, avoid the deviant hunters of the Holy Purist Empire, and dodge the Mutant Supremacists of Aberratia as your dig team travels forest road. At the end of the day, you and your comrades can wash away the grave dust of the ancients with a pint of beer in the bars and saloons of dozens of towns. But even in the scrap and concrete confines of human settlements, keep one eye open, as the abode of men can easily be as deadly as the post-apocalyptic wilderness.
The Crossroads Region Gazetteer is the first official setting for The Mutant Epoch role playing game and contains the sprawling city of Overpass, the purist capital of Pure Hub City, the Aberrationist capital of Newburg, along with thirty one other factional and independent communities.

Herein, the fortified excavator’s town of Pitford resides, as well as the village of Walsave from the Mall of Doom adventure. Several upcoming TME adventures are also set in this region. Designed to connect with other upcoming gazetteers, this territory sits directly above uncharted zones meant to be created by the game master. No further settings will be published which document the areas south of the Crossroads Region, and instead future books will only describe areas, north, east and west. 

Finally, below is a screen version of the map of Leperhold. As the name implies, this sad place is leper colony in the most southern edge of the region.
