Words from the Wise (Guys)

An Editorial Rant


To the forty-fourth issue of The Guild Companion.

Module Progress Report

As promised in last month's editorial, this issue sees the start of our serialization of The Collector, a hybrid d20-Rolemaster campaign module. We'd appreciate your feedback on this product in the Guild Companion Modules forum as it will help us to improve the development of future modules.

City of Archendurn

will go on sale as soon as our ecommerce site becomes operational. Our webmasters are, even as I write, tweaking and testing the configuration of the system. We'll post an announcement as soon as we're ready.

Aaron is still busy writing up Dun Cru, the followup adventure module to City of Archendurn, but hopes to be submitting a manuscript in the next month or so. I'm looking forward to seeing it.

Dragonmeet 2002

I will be attending Dragonmeet 2002 in London on Saturday 30th November (see the press release in this issue and their website at I will be donning my GM's hat and running two game sessions this year.

The first game will be "Pearls Beyond Price", a Run out the Guns! scenario for six players, with intrepid pirates risking their lives against hurricanes, hostile natives, Spanish warships and more in search of fame and fortune. This game will run from about 10.30am to 2.30pm - the starting time is very approximate and will depend on how quickly the convention opens and players can assemble. Characters will be pregenerated in advance.

The second game will be "Beneath the Veil", a variant Spacemaster scenario using pregenerated characters for six players, and will run from 3pm to 6pm. (The Spacemaster rules have been adapted into an Adventure Kit format for convention gaming.) The year is 1935. The place is Venus. The problem is that a British spaceship carrying the Prince of Wales has crashed somewhere in the steaming and monster-infested jungles beyond the frontier settlement of Port Aphrodite. Is it an accident or enemy action by the Nazis or the mysterious Venusians?

Farewell (for now ...)

Our next issue will appear in November, but until then ...

Keep gaming and have fun!
