Preview of the front cover. In a day or two I will be updating the file on DriveThruRPG.

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...

This slim illustrated booklet explores the use of the mighty war elephants of Fonrit, one of the regions of the southern continent of Pamaltela.

It explores the diet and training of the feared shovel-tusker elephants, and their use on campaign and when deployed in battle.

Men of the Sea?  You did some great ships - perhaps expand on that including Gloranthan naval combat, black galleys, more on Wolf Pirates,...?

I have considered this but there are many ships in 'Men of the West'. I have pretty much exhausted the material I have on Wolf Pirates!

Might seem a little silly/strange, but just a guide to the clothing/fashion of different cultures and how they've changed over the years?

That'd be really interesting!

Hell, throw in stuff like everyday tools that aren't going to be covered under weaponry and the like? Stuff like adzes, hand-quarns, grain flails, etc. and maybe badges of office, like batons, etc. 

PURELY thinking out loud, Helsdon, not to pester. :)

At present I am attempting to think up a new project.

I'd love to see you tackle something based around architecture, from big structures (buildings in Boldhome, the Paps, Glamour, Nochet, whatever) to small ones (Pent huts, Lunar outposts, wahtever).

Amazing! How was the process of working with such a famous artist?

Very easy. I gave him PDFs of the books, a few bits of art direction, and then minor comments on the roughs.

Wow! I love Smylie's Artesia comics, so cool seeing his work with yours! :D

I started following his Patreon account where he is sharing chapters in his latest novel about Artesia's brother and material for his next Artesia Known World sourcebook. Mark is a long term Glorantha fan.

Oh damn, how'd that happen? Artesia is awesome and Smylie can really draw cool knights.

Nice!

It is, yes.

See these for his latest publications:

Beautiful! Two thoughts (ok, let's call them fantasies) immediately came to my mind. An Armies of Dragon Pass cover by Smylie... and an Artesia RPG powered by RQ...

Gotta calm down now...

Which may happen, but the art isn't cheap.

Yes, for sure.

Yes, I have it and I like it. I think I read somewhere he was thinking about a new edition or a new system. RQ (remove the runes, add the arcana) would be a good fit for it, methink.

Trying to resolve a composition - if I can't sketch it, I can't describe it. And, embarrassingly, in these doodles, I forgot that the Daughter's Road is a two tier viaduct...
