Those of you who know me know my general fortune with computers - ie, not particularly good. Recently I experienced another hard drive crash and the electronic version of ET was lost. Fortunately I had printed it out, so very little was actually lost, just needs to be typed back into the computer. Since I do not currently have a functioning computer at home, this will be at work so the progress will be a bit slower than I want. At any rate, the revised schedule should be final playtesting through late November, and then a release for Christmas.
Sorry for the delay, and thanks to all of you for your continued support. I promise this adventure will be worth the wait! Be prepared for a Christmas of serpent dreams, caprian plotting, froggy death, and elder madness...

Hey, that is a good idea, Marc. I may have that technological ability. It is good to re-type it, though, as I am picking up on spelling errors that Spellcheck missed or let slide by. The pace will pick up as george is sending me an older laptop he has, so I can get the baility to write at home again, not just at work.

OK, friends, just to let you know that the adventure is in playtesting now. I am still doing a little bit of writing, and tinkering, but it's 99.5% done.
This adventure is a little different from the last ones I have written. Raid On Cygnosa, and to a lesser extent The Dark Vale, were mini-campaigns, with opportunity to take small breaks and aquire new skills/spells as play progressed. This is pretty much one long fight, with a few breaks for possible rests, so it should proceed at a more frantic pace hopefully, despite no enforced time constraints. This may change a bit as playtesting unfolds, but this is the general idea.
Bret, Hope it's not too late, but I'm still typing up my notes from my run through "Emerald Twilight." It's a pretty awesome adventure and some challenging ideas and new foes are in there. I should be able to get them sent to you tonight, or if you like I can give you a call and discuss.

Hey, glad you are enjoying it! It is a change of pace from previous ones I have done, trying to make it all one extended combat rather than a mini-campaign.
Definitely not too late, would love to see what your thoughts are. You can send it by email or call, either one. Got some excellent feedback from your reprobate brother, will be incorporating it the next few days.
I am hoping to send the completed manuscript to George on Friday. The cover should be done then. Over the weekend, hopefully George can get to the printer, and we begin mailing them on Monday or Tuesday, so Christmas can be saved!

Well, evidently this won't be under the tree this year! Everything is done, we are just having a little more difficult time getting it printed and ready to ship than we had anticipated. Not sure if George will announce this for sale before Christmas or not, but you guys should have it around the first of the year.

Hey, another week and no Emerald Twilight? What gives?
Hello, my friends. This should be the last update before ET is out. Surprisingly, the holidays have narrowed our time. I know George has had many relatives with him the past two weeks, and has been unable to do the last bit of magic to get it printed. So, no ET for 2010.
The good news is it should be ready by the first (or, if everything goes wrong, the second) week in January.
I have been trying to figure out how you can paste pictures in this body of text - I would like to give you guys a sneak preview of the cover to ET. If anyone knows how, let me know? I do not have it as a separate file to attach, instead David sent it to me in the body of an email.
At any rate, the feedback from playtesters has been very positive, so I am eager for you all to get it and perish in steaming jungles!
