Engine Publishing and the 19 Contributors to Eureka: 501 Adventure Plots

Posted By Martin Ralya On April 15, 2010 @ 12:51 am In Gnome Gnews | 4 Comments

Yesterday, I launched the website for Engine Publishing, the company that will be publishing our first book, Eureka: 501 Adventure Plots to Inspire Game Masters. (Engine also has a Facebook page.)

You can read a bit more about the company there, but what I’d really like to share with you are the bios for our 19-strong creative team.

These awesome folks are the reason Eureka features great writing, artwork, editing and proofreading, and graphic design. To say that they rock is a serious understatement. They rock harder than a 30-gnome orgy in a van with a wolf airbrushed on the side. Our thanks to each and every freelancer who has worked with us to make Eureka a reality.

In Eureka news, our publication date is approaching. There’s still plenty of finishing work to do, but as soon as we have a finalized publication date we’ll start taking preorders.

We cannot WAIT for you to see this book, and we’ll have a nice big sample available around the time preorders open.

Now I have to go through the rest of my day with the imagined visual of a 30 gnome orgy in my head. THANKS!

Exciting times at the stew!
Looking forward to checking it out.

30 gnomes…dang! Hey, add an ogre and it would look like a wresting match from the eighties with Andre The Giant wresting a mob of… um… er..little folk!

I can’t believe you told everyone about that special night. I thought that was just between the 30 of us… :~(

@Kurt “Telas” Schneider – Actually Kurt, it was more like you were between the 29 of us. >:)

Great to see the Engine Publishing site up and running! I can’t wait until the book is out in print!

@longtooth – We aim to please! Actually, there really wasn’t much room to aim in that van…

@Kurt “Telas” Schneider – Should I also tell them that I’m pretty sure there was a dirty halfling in there somewhere?

@Patrick Benson – Amen to that! It’s been a long and interesting ride. :-)
