The Complete Vivimancer: Update

Just a quick update to say that the first proofreading round on The Complete Vivimancer is now complete!

I have a few alterations to make to the text, based on the proofreaders' feedback, and when that's done I'll be sending the book off to the editor. Layout looks like it might be a month or so away, which means that I'm looking pretty well on schedule for a winter release.

Many thanks to Noah Stevens, Art Braune and Sándor Gebei for their invaluable assistance and advice!

The Complete Vivimancer: Finished Draft!

For those who are following the progress of my new book: good news! I have just put the finishing touches on the draft.

This means that the writing is basically finished. The text is now going to start its (hopefully not too perilous) journey through the land of proofreading, via the forest of editing, with the eventual goal of reaching the mountains of layout and the palace of pristine perfection which is known to mortal men as "".

At this stage we have:
  • 83 pages, A5/digest size (including 2 pages OGL).
  • Over 130 new* spells.
  • 40 new magic items.
  • 2 appendices (psionic powers & mutations).
  • Guidelines for laboratory construction and the keeping of experimental subjects.

* New spells as compared to those in the standard Labyrinth Lord rule books. Compared to Theorems & Thaumaturgy, I think I have about 70 new spells.
