    City of Aldis - New book?

    I recently noticed there are links on Amazon and other sites indicating a new setting book for the City of Aldis is allegedly coming out this month. Doubtful it will be so soon, but has GR said anything about it? Couldn't find anything on their website.

    Well, it was mentioned in the Ronin Round Table about this years releases back in Feb, and IIRC its been mentioned in a few Blue Rose specific Ronin round tables since:

    Hello there!

    Yes, we are in the final stages of work on the City of Aldis sourcebook, likely releasing in Q3 or Q4 of this year. It's a great book, full of characters and locations for the capital of Aldis. I'll give a quick summary of its contents here:
    Introduction, introducing the city
    Life in Aldis, looking at what life in the city is like, including things like healthcare, public works, and education.
    History, detailing the history of the city, from its founding through the era of the Sorcerer Kings, to the founding of the Kingdom.
    High Ward, detailing the High Ward of the city, including characters, locations, and tons of story seeds.
    Lake Ward, as above
    Middle Ward, as above
    Lower Ward, as above
    Outer Ward, as above
    Lands Around Aldis, describing the lands for a day or two's ride around the city, including important locations and characters
    People of Aldis, where we compile all the major NPC stat blocks, plus present some useful "stock" NPC stat blocks
    Character Options, with some new Talents, Specialties, Arcana (and Arcana Knacks), as well as introducing the rhy-rat for play
    Narrating, talking about how to run city-focused campaigns, and how they differ from more standard fantasy "trekking" stories
    The Case of the Rhydan Swine, an adventure set in the city of Aldis
    • And a set of Appendices, including a "sights around Aldis" set that uses the Royal Road, a multiple page list of names, divided among Aldin/Kernish, Jarzoni, and Roamer names, plus a system for quickly generating NPCs using the Royal Road!

    Excited! I'm going to have to figure out how to delay my group from going into Aldis.

    I look forward to the character options, and page list of names especially.

    I hope for no delays.
