Volume One of Beyond the Morning Mountains has recently passed 100,000 words! There’s been plenty of good progress as this first part of your journey to Liust nears completion; including a few new illustrations (preview of the dangerous Bathouk shown above) and the creation of a new wrap-around cover design for this ongoing gamebook series. My revised word count of 110,000 is also likely to be exceeded before the adventure is finished, so there really is a wealth of included content – and therefore gameplay options – for all Quahnarren adventurers to discover.
A preview teaser showing some of the recently completed illustrations for Volume One of my Beyond the Morning Mountains gamebook. I’ve decided to increase the amount of full-page images in the book (hopefully around 35), so there’s many more scenes still to capture.
Progress on Beyond the Morning Mountains, Volume One continues to go very well, including the recent creation and design of a Creature Compendium insert, which details all of the creatures, monsters and spirits that the player may encounter during the first volume of their journey south – including many new adversaries not already featured on this site.
I’ve also been busily writing some of the bonus material and completing numerous new illustrations (which I’ll likely preview here sometime soon) and have also started the final page layout, which includes a few adjustments from the formatting previously seen in the free preview edition released earlier this year.
Tales of Quahnarren is a long-term work in progress that will continue to naturally evolve as new ideas and developments become part of this fantasy world-building project.
This site has been developed to bring together all of the various components created so far into one themed location, as previously new content was only featured on my blog, which was not dedicated to the project itself. Initially posted is all of the currently existing content, together with some new creature and spirit descriptions, notes on the history of Quahnarren, plus a detailed map showing major features of the landmass and all of the significant human settlements.
Enjoy the site and forever keep your imagination active!
