We have been having a lot of fun in the workshop as we are putting the finishing touches on some elaborate room sets and props. I must say that we are really happy with the results we have seen. Also, we are filming a short teaser video today that will highlight all the fun you can have playing the first 2020 module entitled "S1 - Weird Magic". Watch out next week for a big announcement tied to this video and module.

CHANGE OF PLANS: Due to the very busy schedule of Patrick Rothfuss (and his desire to contribute much to the creation process), the proposed adventure based in his literary world will not be done in 2020. Instead, we will present "S1 - Weird Magic" which tasks the players with sneaking into the tower of an evil sage who long ago recovered the wreckage of an alien spacecraft. This is in addition to "S2 - Darkhold Keep" (haunted adventure) and "S3 - Tomb of Terror" (old school homage).

The piece about the upcoming S1 announcement has me immediately guessing TD will be showing it off at a new convention. Before or after Origins though?

Also, slightly surprised not to see a mention of the tokens being on their way across the ocean, as it would seem they should be en route if delivery is happening before Christmas?

Personally, I like that the "S" tag is used for the adventures - keeping in line with Tomb of Horrors original "S1."

Maybe Jeff just really liked the Nintendo Entertainment System? :)

Or maybe there is a longer word he's spelling out...

Hmmm, some echoes of Dungeon of the Mad Mage. Mad Wizard with a tower. Spelljamming ship. Spelljammer helm.
