Crypts & Things cover

Ok so the cover I’ve been showing for Crypts & Things has merely been a placeholder.

Here’s the real deal, drawn by the very talented Jon Hodgson

Bonus points if you can nail who the inspiration behind the axe wielding barbarian is (and no its not a certain Mr Conan πŸ˜‰ ).

  1. It certainly is a thing of beauty. Well done Newt and Jon.

  2. John Adams says:

    Sweet! I am ready to see the inside as well. πŸ™‚

  3. Kerry Harrison says:

    SlΓ‘ine maybe?

  4. I would say it looks like Kull fighting some degenerate serpent men.
    By that axe he RULES!

  5. Sean Wills says:

    I like that, a change to the dark colour palette of most OSR rulebooks.

    What size is the book ?

    • Newt says:

      US Letter i.e. 8 x 11.

      I went all proportional representation on the poll I had about the size.

      Sorry anyone who voted manbag US Trade paperback, but THIS IS D&D not Indie πŸ˜‰

  6. Jack Colby says:

    Can’t wait for this to be released… looks great!

  7. Sir Timothy Of Kent says:

    Looks stunning – like everyone else I’m very excited to get this in my hands (and then unleash it on my players!)

  8. Malakor says:

    Any idea what your pricing is going to be yet? I really want to get this when it’s ready, either in print or pdf, possibly both

  9. Shane Mangus says:

    WOW! You are pulling out all the stops, Newt! This project just keeps getting better and better.

  10. Brutorz Bill says:

    Really cool! Very much looking forward to this!

  11. sean wills says:

    Will it be available in hardback ?

  12. Gordon Richards says:

    Very cool. Really looking forward to getting my mitts on this.

  13. Awesome cover! Congratulations!

  14. Jim Pacek says:

    Awesome! Looking forward to it!

  15. MoRich says:

    Terrific timing — I’m prepping an old school flavored, swords & sorcery style game, and the task of hacking 4E to suit my needs was looking insurmountable. This looks like just the thing. I know everyone is asking, but WHEN!?! And will it be immediately available in PDF, or only in print?


  16. Austin Hatcher says:

    Awesomeness! When? I must have this!

  17. Curt says:

    So, there’s only a week or so left of September. Are we actually going to see the book this month?

  18. Akrasia says:

    Excellent cover!
    (And, by eldritch coincidence, I just recently read that ‘Kull’ collection!)
