Hi all,

I was watching the latest TEGG video on YouTube and it sounds like Ed's newest Realms books should be hitting the DMsGuild soon. :)

Provided I spelled things right (sounded like tomes as opposed to tombs to me!), the titles mentioned were:

Adventures:
At the Sign of the Drowned Dragon
The Haunted Tomes of Derlusk
Rattle the Sabre and Shake the Spear [Champion of Ormpur - Clinton Cronk]
New Story:
The Book that Talked Back - Companion Tale

I'm stoked. One thing I did notice on the website was: "We are not looking at producing ...<snip> regional sourcebooks/guidebooks at this time." Anyone know if this means no accompanying Volo's Guide?

Ed's last Mirt story, All Things Through the Bright Flames was so packed with info it's almost a guide itself, considering how much lore you can mine from it, but I was curious if anyone can confirm if Volo is still a go.

Hoping we see these all on the dmsguild soon! Me wants. :)

Ran the Haunted Tomes of Derlusk a few times last weekend at Gamehole Con in Madison, WI. Loads of fun and kept players entertained for 4 hours at a stretch. Of course, Derlusk being a bibliophile's dream didn't hurt....but I may've said too much....

Lore within the lore maybe? :) Can't wait to get ahold of them!

Hmm odd. So is this Ed's new directionů. to publish future Realms fiction digitally via the DMSGuild, and no longer printing paperbacks through physical or online book stores? (e.g. Barns & Noble, Amazon, Daltons, etc). Just being curious, not that I really prefer the latter method over the other.

It's that or nothing. Far as I can tell, the peeps in charge of WotC have pretty much told the old guard to go get bent. It's up to them what gets published after all. As such, I'm just glad Ed is able to get something out to us, no matter the form.
