Some more Castle of the Mad Archmage News

We've made a lot of progress on Castle of the Mad Archmage™, and I wanted to give everyone a quick update. We're still right on track for a February release (maybe earlier). There are only five pieces of art still outstanding, and the manuscript should be coming back from the editor any time now. The map book is done and MAN does it help having the maps in their own booklet. I ran a session of CotMA yesterday (down in the crypts and lesser caverns) and it made a HUGE difference. I think that's going to be one of the best features of the published version.

Although the first publication will be made using the Adventures Dark and Deep™ rules (which means, of course, that it will be usable with just about any 1E-compatible OSR rules set), the keen-eyed among you might have noticed that call for Pathfinder conversion experts that was posted not too long ago. That is because Castle of the Mad Archmage™ will also be published in a Pathfinder version later this year.

I don't have any details in when it'll be available - I'm still sifting through the responses to find just the right person who can do it justice - but it will happen one way or the other.

This is all good news Joseph!
I personally am interested in both a Pathfinder and an AD&D (or ADD;) version.

Will CotMA be published POD? I hope it will because that will make it much cheaper to order from Europe - as shipping from the States is prohibitively expensive - and danish customs on top of that...

Hmm ok, i just reread your earlier announcement and it makes it perfectly clear that it will be released POD just like the Adventures Dark and Deeps books, YEAH! :)
