Quick Note - My EOS Adventure cover design mark2

This is my second cover for the Edge of Space adventure I am working on.



  1. Looks cool. The emptiness (if you can call it that) gives me an impression of loneliness and starry seriousness - like a stark, Kubrick-esque film with plenty of cosmic terror and paranoia thrown in for good measure.

    If it's supposed to be a space opera or action-packed adventure, then I'd suggest a little more something on the cover art.


  2. Thanks and it actually is a action-packed space marine adventure so it has gone through a number of changes. I plan to post the final cover tomorrow and hopefully the maps will be done tomorrow or end of the weeknd for a Monday release.

  3. May I give a remark?
    The picture is good. The headline is pretty decent.
    However, I'd like to have anything that visually speaks of 'adventure'. My first thought is, to frame the sky as seen thru a ship's window. Or over its hull.
    Also, from my 8 yrs experience in layout, the bottom text seems too similar to the headline. Leaves impression, that the artist didn't bother to figure out something new, so the same blurred letters were used.
    Did you study the best examples?
    Then, your cover is VERY similar to one of my favourite RPG books, Stars Without Number. Is it intentional? If not, then it's another reason to add something to the design.
    And note, that in graphic design sometimes the simple elements work better than the fancy ones. I'm referring to the blurred outlines of letters by that.

    1. People may always remark +Guntis Veiskats, and I happy they do!
      If you'd like, take a look at this post ( with a redesigned cover which was made with feedback very similar to yours.

      Also ... you know of any "Stars without Numbers" games going on, I've been wanting to try the system out.

The Robathen's Coin Parts 1 -3

A long time ago I released a short story on drivethrufiction called "The Rabathen's Coin - An Arame Tale" that was meant to be the start of a series staring a mysterious thief named Arame.  Well, five years later and I have sold maybe six copies.  With that in mind I figured I might as well break it up into two or three parts and post in on the blog.

Thoughts are welcome as I am always interested in what others think of my original works.

The stench of rotten fish, sweat, mildewed wood and the ocean rose up from the black waters of the harbor in a visible mist that hung over the free trade city of Wickend adding to the already strong reek of human filth and cheap ale. The setting sun, unable to pierce the vile mist, washed over the crumbling buildings that lined the twisting streets of the Old District. From open doors and windows came the sounds of life, true life, of men laughing and boasting, of women flirting and dealing in their trades. To an outsider, the Old Distr…

I am starting to see a theme evolving here ... and it wasn't even planned.  Enjoy, and feedback is always welcomed!

Magic Item - Arcane Gauntlet

Arcane Gauntlets are small devices of leather and copper fitted to the wearer's primary hand and feature a small, thin gem imbued with pure arcane energies affixed to the palm. As a standard action the wearer of an Arcane Gauntlet may release its energies up to four times in a single encounter safely, and up to eight times if the wearer is willing to endure the burning residual heat from sustained use of the device.  If an Arcane Gauntlet is used to its maximum effect (eight times) it is inoperable until such a time as its wearer takes a long rest.
