The Horn Cover image complete

Well, I'm not going to lie. This isn't what I was looking for when I did the commission. But one of the downfalls of the person I use  is that it is a once an done process (justifies his cheap price). The image doesn't affect "Under the Horn" at all, but it may affect the follow-up 2-page adventure "Into the Horn" that I've just started outlining.

Thoughts?


As for "Under the Horn". I may be done tonight/tomorrow depending on whether or not my wife takes an extra shift at the hospital.

    1. More of a small fantasy village instead of the glowing skyscapers. I have re-written a small part of the adventure to reflect the cover. I think it may work out for the best in the end as a slight Sci-Fantasy twist to the entire series might be fun.

  2. There's something really cool about actual art instead of all the cyber photo-masturbation-shop you get with digital effects.

    What notes did you give the artist prior? Did he provide you with a sketch before diving in? Acrylic, I assume? Also, I'd be interested in knowing the price. Although, I understand if you'd rather not say.

    1. No sketch or thumbnail unfortunately. From what I told him: " A giant horn/tusk with a full moon partially obsured behind it. Below the horn, in its shadow, is a small fantasy town. If you can I would like the POV to be from the street of the town, looking up toward the horn.


      The price was $25.00. A little more than the previous Lighthouse piece for "Lights over Innsfjord".

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.



I.
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.
Arcane Gauntlet- Rare Magical Item - Requires Atunement - Ranged Magical Weapon - Range 60/120ft - One Target, Hit 6 (1d6 + 2) Arcane Damage - Special After 4 uses the Gauntlet inflicts 2 Arcane damage on its wearer during every use in an encounter, on the 8th such use the wearer incurs 1d6 damage from the gauntlet's use.
