Eureka is Now at the Printer

From the Engine Publishing blog:

As of 10:36 pm Mountain, just a couple of minutes ago, Eureka has been sent to the printer and a proof will shortly be headed back to me.

Holy shit, this feels weird.

It still doesn’t feel real, and likely won’t until I’m holding a copy in my hands, but Gnome Stew’s book, Eureka: 501 Adventure Plots to Inspire Game Masters, is real.

Nineteen awesome people poured their hearts into this book, and, having just finished reviewing the master PDF one final time, it shows. To everyone who helped make Eureka a reality: THANK YOU.

Working on this book over the past year has been an amazing experience. Despite it’s paucity of hot gnome-on-gnome woodcuts (don’t be coy, we know how you found this site), we hope you like it.

Having seen the PDF that is at the printers, you are going to be blown away. I am reading it now.

Alea iacta est!! (The die has been cast!)

We won’t know what will happen for a while, but this is a huge moment for those of us who have been working on this book.

Whatever does happen, this has been an amazing experience so far, and I’m both honored and proud to be a part of this collaboration.

OK, back to writing more GMing articles…

Go away! I’m reading Eureka! I have no time to post comments!

There’s so much in here that makes me want to run games, that it’s kind of like Viagra for RPGs.

@Kurt “Telas” Schneider – Speaking of the phrase, I’ve been nursing an idea for a little while…

@Matthew J. Neagley – “Viagra for RPGs,” I like that. ;-)

It was exciting to write and interesting to read, even searching for flaws. It’s been an adventure– a good one, with great obstacles overcome– and soon we get to share the dragon’s hoard of words with the rest of the world.

If I buy a copy of this at Gen Con, I expect to get many gnome signatures. :D
