Greetings, and firstly apologies for not having been more prolific this week with the posts. I have had some interesting ideas but I'm notoriously over-critical of my own stuff and I haven't been able to convince myself that they're blogworthy. Maybe next week.
Anyway, on to the business of the day. Art. Have I found any? Hoo-boy, you bet I have. Today's artist is a games illustrator and fellow Brit, Pete Amachree. He turns out some pretty cool stuff, much of which can certainly spark an idea or two in a DM's mind. I found quite often - back when I was a much younger Grognard - that the images on the covers of the old White Dwarfs (that's before issue 70 or so) would get my mind thinking 'How can I use that in a dungeon?'. I hope these pictures set off something similar.
Temple of the Medusa - now come on, who's just written the entire dungeon in their mind?
Who knows what lies beyond the Gate?
You want post-apocalyptic art? We've got that.
More post-apocalyptic here. What weird mutants lurk in the water?
It's bleak, it's icy, you bet it will do nicely, Giant Hall, Giant Hall...
If you go down to the woods today...
Clash of the Titans? Pah! Now this is epic...
Well, I'm just off to roll some dice for SNFC which, with any luck will be up tomorrow. Sunday may well see me getting some gaming in with Junior Grognard, off across the river again in search of treasure (it's about time they actually found some!)
