Buncha small update-like things to share:
Fist off, interesting post from Serenity star Nathan Fillion over at the official Browncoat forums (You have to register, but that’s how we found out about nifty stuff like the advanced screenings, so it’s worth it). Seems he was trying to buy a copy of the new Serenity comic book for his Mom, and some mouth-breather Simpsons-Comic-Store-Guy-stereotype tried to charge him 20 bucks for it. Yes, the comic is much hotter than Dark Horse was expecting (I didn’t get a copy, I’ve got it on back-order, and Dark Horse is having to do a second printing), but attempting to charge 20 bucks for a brand-new comic is pretty much typical of what I hate most about the fan-based industries. This asshole didn’t realize who he was talking to, either, and now he’s got Browncoats crawling up his ass. Serves him right.
Second: My company, Adamant Entertainment, just kicked off our officially-licensed support of Atlas Games’ NORTHERN CROWN D20 setting of colonial-period North American fantasy. We’ve released The Caves of Chisca, a full-length adventure, for FREE. You need to register at RPGNow, but there’s no charge, so check it out.
Third (related to second): There are two Livejournals of note with regards to NORTHERN CROWN. One is the design blog of the creator, Doug Anderson, at
Fourth: I finished reading Star Trek: Vangard – Harbinger, and I really enjoyed it. I’ll definitely be picking up the other books in the series when they’re released. The author created some great new characters, whom I’m actually interested in reading more about (which is, bluntly, a rarity in licensed fiction), and the over-arcing plot threads are intriguing. Good stuff.
