Smithson Thus Far... ·


Ah, the first Narbonic roleplaying game. I was so jazzed when I got this. I had never done any gaming; it's the one nerd thing I haven't gotten into. Recently, I've done a couple of campaigns run by my friend Jason Thompson (one Call of Cthulhu and one d20-based pirate game, for the curious).

I spent a lot of time on the cover illustration, which is based on the cover of the Amber Diceless Roleplaying Game, the system Jude and Brian used:

I really like that I included a tiny little screaming Scott McCloud, a nod to Andrew's guest week. In the lowest box, I accidentally left off Madblood's moustache, making him look kind of Amish.

So It Begins (soitbegins) says: Wow. Neat.

...say, anyone want a mint? :)
Metal Fatigue (metalfatigue) says:
Tsk. No mention of the artist of the original cover?

(It's Michael William Kaluta.)

Leon Arnott (l) says: Now, this? This is all kinds of neat that the previous Sundays have oftentimes been depriving us of. I mean, look at it: a beaker of eyeballs in one hand and a mug of self-heating Narbonicoffee in the other, surrounded by her sprites and with a snarling beast at her feet!

And, most importantly, it's a rare face-on shot of Helen! Golly, even I have been underestimating the majestic girth of her hair.
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

Much-belated Big Freakin' (tm) Gun watch ... is that the same gun Mell used to fight the gerbils?  I'll give her the benefit of the doubt.  Official count is now 5.

Never argue with a heavily-armed woman.  Words to live by.  And not die by.
