Buy My Books! (If You Want! Again!)

I have two(ish) new adventure books out from Lamentations of the Flame Princess!

You can get them here.

GREEN MESSIAH is about the benefits of both adoption and a vegetarian diet, and maybe a little bit about religion too. It's inspired by Superman, Swamp Thing, The Colour Out of Space, and my childhood stomping grounds in rural Sussex. Rural Sussex is weird.

TERROR IN THE STREETS is a missing persons mystery set against the backdrop of 1630 Paris and the Day of the Dupes, when Cardinal Richelieu and Marie de'Medici, the king's mother, struggled for influence over Louis XIII and therefore, control of France. Yes, there are musketeers!

(Terror in the Streets used to be called Terror in the Shadows and it's not a massively interesting story but I may tell it one day.)

TERROR IN THE STREETS is also available as a fancy pants boxed set containing the main adventure, a second book of adventures, an A3 map of Paris, handouts, props, and a custom six-sided die. It's our homage to the big silly boxed sets TSR put out in the 80s and 90s. It's expensive, so we wanted to put lots of fun stuff in the box to make it worth the cost.

As soon as I get my author copies, I'll post some pictures of the books and box here. If you're confident you want to buy before then, then click away, my friends!

Road Trippy

Here's one final piece -- for now -- from Comes Chaos.

This is for the travel chapter, and is supposed to depict a landscape corrupted and twisted by the influence of big-C Chaos. The previous picture was my first attempt at the image, but it was too close to the action and didn't get the idea across of a journey through a tainted land. I'm not sure this one does either, but it's closer!

(Pun not intended.)

It's also a bit of an homage to a classic piece of Warhammer art, given that the project as a whole has a Warhammer flavour. As I worked on the image it drifted further from the original and I suspect it's unidentifiable to anyone who doesn't know already. I will be impressed if anyone spots it!

Comes Chaos is available in pdf now from JB's blog. A print version is on its way and JB will announce when that's ready to go.

Kebab Night

Here's another piece from Comes Chaos, which is available now in pdf from Running Beagle:

I didn't like this one at first, but I sent it over for inclusion anyway, and it turns out I was wrong because it made it into the book! I've grown more attached to the picture now, which is the opposite of what tends to happen when I draw.

A print version of Comes Chaos will be available soon; keep an eye on JB's blog for updates on that.

Oh! Don't You Tell Me It's Tough!

And another for Running Beagle!

I couldn't find a good paint splatter image, so I ended up making my own and scanning that, which all seems a bit low-fi and analogue, but it was fun chucking paint around in the name of "art".

Edit: The book is available now! It's called Comes Chaos and you can get it here.
