A shame about this poor fellow who, like many others starting out in the adventuring field, made the fatal error of underestimating his somewhat ridiculous-looking opponents. Another preview for GM Games' Starter Adventures.

The Perils of First Level

Yes, the big strong guy in the armor stands a good chance of getting killed dead by the destitute goblin armed only with a stick.  Another preview from Tim Shorts' Starter Adventures.

Pencils and Inks (and ghosts)

Today's post shows a pencil drawing before it is utterly annihilated (except for this digital relic) by the final inking stage. The illustration is from Dennis Sustare's Tourist Traps module from this year's North Texas RPGcon and depicts a pair of ghosts, a tragically slain cleric and a perhaps thankfully deceased actor (note his fake armor and scenery-chewing emoting).

Child of the Raven Gods

Here's the cover image from RPG legend Dennis Sustare's new module, premiering at this weekend's North Texas RPGcon.
In other news, Tim Shorts of Gothridge Manor honored Underworld Ink with his coveted Newbie Blogger Award.

And there was great rejoicing!
I love that the award is represented by a dead knight. He was probably a newbie. Thanks Tim!
