Masks Sneak Peek: Unboxing the First Copy

Posted By Martin Ralya On June 30, 2011 @ 12:13 am In Gnome Gnews | 7 Comments

Hmm, this package is suspiciously book-shaped!

What could be inside? Why, it’s the printer’s proof for Masks: 1,000 Memorable NPCs for Any Roleplaying Game!

Look at the spine on this beast! It’s gigantic!

Here’s a two-page spread featuring the artwork of Chris Reach:

…and another featuring the artwork of Avery Liell-Kok:

For good measure, how does Masks stack up (hah!) against our first book, Eureka: 501 Adventure Plots to Inspire Game Masters, and the D&D 4e Player’s Handbook?

I was too sick to post these yesterday, when the proof arrived, but I’m more or less better now and I had to share. Despite having done this once before, and having seen the love that was poured into this book over the past 10 months, part of me still went “Hey, this is a real book!” when I first opened the package.

Preorders open July 5th. w00t!

I’ve got to give a huge shout out to all of the artists who made this book look phenomenal. There is so much quality art in here that it is amazing, and it is all thanks to Andrew McIntosh, Avery Liell-Kok, Christopher Reach, Matt Morrow, and Peter Szmer.
