Fal-Con Less than a Week Away

Posted by Labyrinthian in , ,


Middletown CT will soon play host to Fal-Con.  I'll be running a` Hackmaster Basic game at the convention based on the 1985 film, The Goonies.  It may seem a bit odd, but as we pointed out on one of our top 10 lists, this movie is teeming with with great gaming ideas!

If you are in the area you should come check out Fal-Con, and maybe ever stop by the table and say hello.  For those who want to give HMB a try and/or love the Goonies make sure you sign up.  There will be tricks, traps, treasure maps, and a good time had by all! 

Speaking of treasure maps, here is a look at Black Rob's Treasure Map that takes center stage early in the adventure.  There are two version I am deciding on before having it printed.  One has fold lines while the other just has curling and aging effects.  Let me know which you like better.

First up is the version with the agged folding lines.


And Here is the one without.  I think I'm leaning toward this one.

Update:


Notable improvement by overlaying a parchment texture.  Gives the map a more worn and aged feel.

Hello, Labyrinthian.

I am please writing to you to ask how I can have the permission to use of your image ‘Black Rob’s Treasure map’ for a commercial use.
I am working on publishing a book in Korean Language and I am hunting an antique treasure map for an image of the book.
‘Black Rob’s Treasure Map is an absolutely great work. I feel like to quest with it at a first glance.

Please kindly guide me to proceed how to have the clearance process to receive the permission from you.

If you have any question about the book, please do not hesitate to contact me at this email.
