This really isn’t what I had planned on happening! I had intended on writing up a blog last weekend, but several factors prevented this from happening. First, I went to the Edmonton Comic and Entertainment Expo on Saturday.

Secondly, I had to write up my usual New Mutant Monday entries and I was so tired and so damn busy on Sunday I barely had any time to write up two of them.

Following is the sixth chapter of "Colossus of Ylourgne," a 1934 novella by author Clark Ashton Smith that is set in his land of Averoigne, a dark fantasy version of a medieval province in southern France. This engaging and lurid story has influenced role-playing game development more than many people might expect, both credited and uncredited. This story has two more chapters and we will post another every week or so. We hope you enjoy it! And if you have not already, you can read Chapter 1: Flight of the NecromancerChapter 2: Gathering of the Dead, or Chapter 3: Testimony of the Monks, Chapter 4: Going Forth of Gaspard du Nord, or Chapter 5: Horror of Ylourgne

Time for the usual update. If there is one positive aspect to being unemployed, it is the fact I’ve been able to put so much work into my projects over the past six weeks. I am pleased to announce I have finished with the first round of edits, cuts and additions to the three mutation books!

I might even make a forth, this one containing all the material I cut from the other three. I can easily add a hundred or more new mutations as well, as I am using my vast library of source books for inspiration.

Following is the fourth chapter of "Colossus of Ylourgne," a 1934 novella by author Clark Ashton Smith that is set in his land of Averoigne, a dark fantasy version of a medieval province in southern France. This engaging and lurid story has influenced role-playing game development more than many people might expect, both credited and uncredited. This story has three more chapters and we will post another every week or so. We hope you enjoy it!

I’m pleased to say the re-write and reformatting of the Physical and Mental mutation books are complete! The next book for me to work on is the plant mutation book, and it’s tiny compared to the other two, being only 60 pages in length.

I did say it was going to be significantly smaller.

Following is the third chapter of "Colossus of Ylourgne," a 1934 novella by author Clark Ashton Smith that is set in his land of Averoigne, a dark fantasy version of a medieval province in southern France. This engaging and lurid story has influenced role-playing game development more than many people might expect, both credited and uncredited, and inspired images like the one by artist Ian Llanas that appears here. This story has five more chapters and we will post another every week or so. We hope you enjoy it! And if you have not already, you can read "Chapter 1: Flight of the Necromancer" or Chapter 2: Gathering of the Dead
