I know, because my advanced copies arrived earlier this week. I like to think that I have been pretty even-keeled through this whole process, but man, having these things in my hands prompted such a rush of emotions. Even now, a couple days later, every time I see them sitting on the chair in the corner of my office, its just about all I can do to keep from falling over.
HOLY CRAP THE BOOK IS REAL! Legit: it is entirely different to hold it in your hands. The digital files don’t do it justice, the photos either. I can not wait for y’all to see this thing and crack it open.
Go on, go pre-order this thing to make sure you get a copy on October 10, especially if you want that deluxe edition, because that was printed in limited quantities. Oh man, the custom end papers in that look so goooooooooood.
Pre-order the regular edition here.
And save those receipts! If you send me your paid pre-order notice, I will send you a free copy of the Lost Chapters companion zine (it’s also coming out in October).
Oh, what, you want more pictures? (click to embiggen in a new tab)

The deluxe edition endpapers look great.
They were a late addition and I kinda forgot they were there!
So much I could say about this but I LOVE LOVE LOVE how the illustration for the 1970s echoes Trampier’s immortal player-facing illustration for the Dungeon Master’s Screen!!!!!!!!!! *explodey head emoji*
That was definitely a touchstone in our early conversations!
