I wrote a book based on my Obsidian Portal Campaign: Lodestar

Well, more based in the same world. It's super nerdy and dorky and I think it would be right up most of the site's alley. Especially if you enjoyed my campaign, Lodestar. Or if you like Fritz Leiber's work. Or if you're into off-kilter unpretentious fantasy fiction.

The book is called Spell/Sword, and you check it out on "Amazon":http://www.amazon.com/Spell-Sword-G-Derek-Adams/dp/0615782760/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1365454558&sr=8-1&keywords=Spell%2FSword or at my writing site: http://spell-sword.com/.

I'm self-publishing, so I've got to toot my own horn --- I feel awkward gumming up the official forums with my shameless self-promotion, but there it is. This is a book based on a Pathfinder campaign, and only my experiences writing the campaign here on OP gave me the courage to try to write it in the first place. For better or worse, OP is my book's womb.

Look, I'm a huge dork. And I wrote this book for huge dorks. I have a sneaking suspicion that most of you know the nobility of that title, and would really enjoy the book. Or at least hate it in a noble fashion.

Thank you for taking a peek! If anyone has a particle of interest, I'll be happy to expound more on the book's appeal --- but I don't want to overstep your good will any further.

    Sommerset - nothing wrong with a shameless plug especially since you are sharing an awesome creation.

    Thanks, Leonidas! I'm certainly hoping for awesome, but I'll settle for entertaining.

    Hey Sommerset

    Very Cool! I admire the effort it must take to transform a whole campaign into a novel. Well done!

    Ha - well a small part of a villain's backstory into a novel. Lodestar is waaaaay too sprawling to cram between just one pair of covers. Thanks for the support!

    Anyone that hasn't check out the book yet, should. I have read it and have written a brief review. "You can check it out here":http://notthesingularity.com/2540/spellsword-an-rpg-comes-to-life/
    very enjoyable.
