First Artist Announcement

Kevin Mayle will be doing the cover of the as-yet unnamed wilderness adventure to be included in the LotFP Weird Fantasy Role-Playing box set.

He's done the coloring job for LotFP's Insect Shrine of Goblin Hill cover (as yet unreleased, planned to be the first thing after the box set now), multiple color pieces for Fight On!, and many homages to old TSR art pieces, including the once-controversial Holmes cover "cover."

This cover art will of course be full-color.

The adventure itself will be a maritime adventure with a pirate theme, introducing basic elements of wilderness adventuring and of course having the touch of surreality that's a LotFP trademark.

There will be more copies of the adventure printed for those that may want it without getting the full box.

Truth be told, the reason it'll be a maritime adventure is because I'm just going to cut and paste certain maritime OGL rules into my manuscript, and I don't know if anyone has ever used them, whether in their current form or their original incarnation in the 1981 box. If the adventure uses them, I have to playtest the rules in order to run the adventure before it sees print. Convenient, eh? :D
