I'll check on that the best I can (oddly I don't have login access to the site).

For now PM me with your e-mail and I'll get back to you.

Hello? Did someone mention my name?

Excellent Idea! Will Skies be out in enough time by the deadline?


Studio 2 are saying it will be in stock on May 12th :)


I saw one copy in my FLGS yesterday

I got mine last Friday and it is sweet (although it does have a little of that "curled cover" syndrome)!

So, Mr. Blewer, any tidbits that got left out that would make good fodder for Shark Bytes?

I'm just asking!

Could you clarify that a bit? At first, it sounded like you want to have a list of powers for each spellcaster. But that's already done in the setting book, so I'm guessing I've misunderstood.

If he means a list of trappings for those spells... Well, I have one of those right here.

Coming to a website near you, very soon!

Actually, What I would like to do is the Skies version of the Arcane Powers from DL:R.

Of course if you want to provide that for Shark Bytes, I certainly wouldn't turn it down!

Actually we are going to offer something similar, but more, very soon (mid June) as a freebie, so if you could hold off on doing that, I would be very appreciable :)

No problem! Good to know my instincts are on the money, so to speak.

Hey, Chief...there was talk of doing some interviews. You got anyone for that yet? I was thinking of wrangling a few of those "10 Questions" articles from the luminaries.

Also, put me down for a Savage Tale that can be dropped into just about any fantasy setting.

Good to hear from you! No one's stepped up to the plate yet for an interview, so go for it.

Just a quickie question. Ifn I were to do some maps for inclusion with the adventure I'm writing - do ya'll have a format you'd prefer? Size restrictions?

Normally I do maps for online play using Fantasy Grounds (I usually use a 50px=1" scale), but I can do larger/smaller as needed.

Thanks much!

Any typical format (jpeg, gif, bmp) would be fine. I could take postscript in a pinch, but I'd rather not.

Although, I can reduce it, if you want to provide both hi-res and lo-res (72 dpi) versions, I'll have one to put in the issue and the hi-res version would be a supplementary download.

Hey all,

Several of you have asked for a reminder of the upcoming Shark Bytes Deadline.

Here it is! If possible, I'd like to get all the articles in as finished a form as possible in a week and a half.

Thank you all for such great contributions!

Perhaps some of the best edges from Savagepedia might be used for Edge of Reason? I note there's no contributor listed currently, it would be great filler.

I would need to track down each of the original authors to get their permission. I'm a little time crunched right now. Would someone like to do that?

Easy as pie. Almost all of them have the creator's name at the end of the Edge (Atypical being the only edge I can see that didn't have it). So, someone who is not me should be assigned to pick a few really good edges, then the owners can be PMed or posted up here, or whatever.
