Edge of the world, Ma!

Okay, so I have some good news and some bad news. The bad news (I always do bad news first) - well, it's not too bad. I have a lot of work to do on the Frankenstein book app over the next month or so, and it's not going to leave much time for blogging, so posts will be less frequent for a while.

If you get withdrawal symptoms, you can always go look at some old posts; we've got hundreds. (Here's one of my favorites to get you started.) And if you were given some book tokens by Auntie and want some ideas what to do with them: eyes right, my friend. It's that simple.

Okay, so the good news is that Fabled Lands LLP has prepared a little Christmas present and you can pick it up here. It's just for a few days, though. If the link doesn't work, I'm afraid you missed Santa and he's gone back to the North Pole till next year. Or maybe he's gone to the South Pole this year. Tekeli-li.

Happy Christmas from me, Jamie, Tim and Franklin. God rest ye merry, good and worthy wights.

  1. I think Santa is getting senile, he gave us the same present last year although in a different format (.xps file). Still, thank you for the gift Dave, a Word doc is much more flexible and will allow us to add illustrations and a nice cover before printing this treasure then adding it to our collections.

    I hope you and yours have a wonderful Christmas and New Year.

    Dave Macauley :-)

  2. I'm afraid that's because Santa's elves (me and Jamie) didn't get the all-new present ready in time, David. It was supposed to be a new Dragon Warriors adventure in gamebook form, but our Frankenstein's monster proved to be too demanding. Well, next year I promise something different :-)

  3. Happy Christmas to you, Dave and the others !
    I was about to wish you inspiration for the Frankenstein book app, but I suddenly realise that, if my wish would come true, this would mean for you nights full of nightmares à la Lovecraft... ;-)


  4. Happy Christmas, Olivier. And rest assured, I thrive on nightmares :-)

  5. Thanks Dave!

    On my Santa wishlist for next year: FL7 :-)

  6. Merry Christmas! Thanks for the gamebook, I missed it last year.

  7. Thanks for the gift, Dave
    Merry Christmas to your family and friends(a bit late...) from Chile (in the middle of a hot summer)


  8. Pretty short window of oppurtuntiy there...

  9. That's Christmas for you; all that preparation and it's over in a trice. To make up a bit, next year we'll have the Legend scenario that I meant to post this year. You'll have to remind me.
