Swords of Central Genertela


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Latest. Needs a little more work... May be room for one more...

Hmm, the sketch does need a few changes but... it is also larger than anticipated as it drives the chapter over another page, so I am going to have to eject something else. Maybe I should remove the horns from the headdress...

Men of the West now has a color wrap-around cover by Mark Smylie. https://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/325525/Men-of-the-West?src=hottest_filtered?affiliate_id=2310005  

Will just leave this here...

In happier times, this would have made me delighted and astonished, so I will share it here.

Well, the shaman has been reworked today, the formatting altered to make everything fit, an index generated, so here it is, sans front and back cover. Now just to get approval and do another round of proofreading.

There are other things I could have sketched, but I don't want this to turn into a monster like Armies and Enemies, and I am presently out of material/ideas for more text.

Not certain what my next project will be - there's insufficient seed material for a similar book on the east of Genertela.

Thank you for the comments. 

Now about half way through the first pass through of proofreading, and realised I needed an illustration... (I had unashamedly used an existing piece from Armies & Enemies but realised it didn't fit.)

Ooh, love his shield and greaves, and the spiral on the breastplate - and the torc is a lovely addition too!

Thank you. Trying to show that 1st Age Orlanthi weren't the same as those of the 3rd Age. Wanted to show both a level of sophistication and less developed armor.

Latest.

Not sure about the 'magic effect.' May rework.

And I did...

This is the final sketch for my current project unless chapters grow during the second pass of proofreading, so it may be the final one, as I don't have any other projects planned.

Martin, I just want to say thank you so much for taking the time to put together these amazing, informative books with such excellent and detailed art. I personally cannot wait for MotW to hit shelves.

Am going to put in an order for preview hardcopies in an hour or so. And ordered.

With the index, it works out at 182 pages plus covers.

Tomorrow I will create the PDF for DriveThruRPG.

I did consider Fonrit, but that may not be viable topic at present.

You could do the Dwarf armies of Slon! 😉  Ready to bring their vast army of dinosaur hsunchen and strange tech across the world!

Am now between projects.

Take the deep dive -- an exploration of the Triolini.  Ludochs, malasps, murthdryami!  At the very least it'll be a an opportunity to put your stamp on what the Waertagi look like, and an excuse to draw mermaid boobs.

!i!

I'd buy Fonrit! Also Armies of Darkness, a guide to warfare in Uzdom across Glorantha from ancient Dagori Inkarth to sophisticated Blue Moon Plateau and barbarian Tarmo...

There's not really much I could add beyond what is in the Guide and the Different Worlds article. Whilst I use Chaosium material (with permission prior to publication) there's not a great deal I could add to dwarves.

You don't HAVE to do anything!  😅 But if you're looking for ideas... maybe something specifically for the Wastes? I know you had Praxians and some horsefolk in the Central Genertela book, though, so there might not be much left.

Well, I do. For the past eight years I was the carer for a parent, for the last three, intensively so, usually at their home for twelve or so hours a day and on call outside that. It is no coincidence that this coincides with the work on Armies & Enemies of Dragon Pass, as it kept me busy and distracted when there wasn't a need to do anything - though I was there for 'emergencies' which became increasingly common. I could sit with the laptop or sketching pad ready. I had started work on Men of the West a few weeks before they suddenly died, and resumed work on it to help with the black pit a few months later. I am now clearing their home, and my own, because I'd promised I would look after their garden and pets, but can't work on this continuously, so am deliberating another project.

Again, there's the issue that available official material would be tricky to expand on.

There has been an official work on the Uz in the works for some time, so like Kralorela it is not viable.

Am pondering northern Pamaltela...

Pictures of hsunchen riding dinosaurs, of course!  🙂  And dinosaurs pulling great dwarf contraptions!

And would fit right in with something that spans across northern Pamaltela.
