The Questing Beast is now available!

Instead of Print-on-demand, I opted to desktop publish the game. It is a 32-page book, comb bound with a silver metallic motif on a red cover. I'm including 5 hand-stencilled dice with every copy.

Special thanks to Paganini for his incredible editorial support and thanks to The Forge for providing the ultimate sounding-board any game designer could hope for!

Holy wow.
HAND-STENCILLED dice?

One question though:  How many sides are these dice?  Or is the surprise part of the advertisement?

I don't want to build people up over the dice so I'll describe them.

Ingredients: Standard cubes of wood (craft secion of any large department store), a stencil with some nice roses and thorns and leaves and stuff, red and black brush pens.

Process: Found the roses that would fit the dice, stencilled them. In place of a one, there is a red rose. In place of the six, there is a black rose. All other sides are blank. Hard to work on such a small surface, btw.

Just thought I'd toss them in as a bonus so you could use them for (drum roll please...) Bonus Dice!

My copy came!  And it's sweet!  And the dice are cool!  And the cover design is simple and beautiful - James, it's hand-stencilled, right?

Yeah, hand-stencilled. Some were done by my wife, Dawna, some were done by me. But the design is hers. I like it!
