Countdown to More Mayhem: Sneak Peak #3


Definition: [n] a notable achievement; "he performed a great deed"; "the book was her finest effort"
Synonyms: deed, effort, exploit

Yeah, it's been 8 years since you incorporated that word to your Dungeons and Dragons game, and it spread out to many other OGL games, more than 50% of the whole d20 material in the world contains a chapter or section dedicated to Feats. Hell, there's even whole books with only feats.

These cannot be classified as the equivalent of advantages or qualities in other RPGs, as the definition implies these are sometimes mind-boggling, rule-bending, argument fodder abilities that in the right hands can build the perfect character or wreak havoc and despair around a gaming table. In some games you can guess or identify what will be the new advantages or qualities that will show up in the next book, you just see what hasn't been covered yet. However, d20 has reached a different scope, you can never expect what possibilities a new book might bring with its feat variety, some times it's even scary.

Well, Even More Magic & Mayhem... Let's begin with that "Even More", you bet it's more! In fact this book has so many new options and varieties that any pathological rules addicted scavenger will feel satisfied. So you can understand what I mean here is some of the feats you will see in EMM&M:

Amplify Curse, Cold-blooded Killer, Dual Blessings, Gouge, Hamstring, Improved Industrious Haste, Improved Tricks, Judgement, Moonkin Form, Runic Engineer, Shred.

And these are just the names, some will stare in awe, some won't see what the words actually mean. What you need to know is this... There are MORE. And you won't be disappointed.
Even More Magic and Mayhem is due before June 2008. And when I say before it can be in May or three weeks from now. Who knows? Like feats, expect the unexpected.

P.S. funny WotC chose this word... "synonim: exploit". Naaaah....

Hi, gang!

Just letting everyone know that I'm still alive and in one piece. My computer broke down quite some time ago, and I had to wait for the money to get a new one. Unfortunately, I've lost all the material I was working on for my site. The good news is that I'm going to revamp the site and get back to work as soon as possible.

On to my question ...

"Even More Magic and Mayhem is due before June 2008."

I know enough to expect delays with an undertaking like this book ... but the kid in me craves more World of Warcraft RPG Goodness (tm)!

Any word (no matter how tentative) on a release date?
