Yes, even Ashely notices the ass on the cover of The Islands of Purple-Haunted Putrescence
. Admittedly, it is hard to miss. Not quite what I would choose for the cover of a gaming product, but so long as the stuff between the covers is good.
I got my copy in the mail yesterday and will be part of my vacation reading (amongst many others). Technically, it arrived on the last day of June and it was estimated for July, so yes, Holy Shit, this is actually a Kickstarter that released EARLY!
The PDF of The Islands of Purple-Haunted Putrescence
is available at DriveThru and RPGNow.
Yeah, interesting choice for a cover. Not likely to make my "read in public" pile of books. :-\ReplyDelete
You could read it at the porno theater while waiting for the feature to start.Delete
That might just be the best suggestion ever for when to read Purple in public!Delete
I believe the cover is an homage to Taarna and Heavy Metal. (She's wearing the same outfit, and I believe that's the same sword.) So it's more than just an ass-shot, but rather a gonzo fantasy callback.ReplyDelete
"Less inclusive and welcoming than most modern books. An inelegant cover from a less civilized age."ReplyDelete
I'm glad it arrived safely... and that Ashely has something nice to stare at. ;)ReplyDelete
Happy vacation reading!
Wow, Eric. Your cat is a perv.ReplyDelete
