I'm working on a Savage Worlds project using One Monk Miniatures art (and hopefully figures). It's going to be an free introductory adventure that showcases the system and world. I've been approved for licensing so now it's time to put-up-or-shut-up
Here are some samples I'm putting together for the cards. This will currently use the SWEX rules but I'm planning that once Showdown comes out I'll be combining rpg and miniature scenarios that can affect each other as the outcomes happen, i.e. kinda like the old Vor campaign rules or the Warhammer decision tree stuff.
I think it's going to be so cool to see my figures on these stat cards! Thanks for posting the previews, I know there a few Savage Worlds players here. Hopefully I can keep you stocked with clipart as I get more figure sets done. JIM

Here's a link to the WIP pdf of the cards for the first encounter - they are not fully laid out yet (some cleanup on the stats and some margin adjustments) but you can get the feel of what I'm working on.

Progress is slow but sure - I'm not only working on the scenario but also on the campaign guide (which will use a large portion of One Monk art). I present - the Midland Troll page from the Bestiary section. I don't know if each monster will get it's own page but I may have some dedicated to my favorite beasties.

Getting back into the swing of things this weekend (although I am recovering from a night out of NTN Trivia and a few pitchers of Arrogant Bastard that my friends took me out for!).
I'm working on the pregens for the initial adventure release. These will be my "iconics" just like D&D or Paizo uses for their adventures. These full page sheets may be modified for a more printer friendly and compact format (like 3 to a page with a front and back) instead of the full page but here's my WIP of a female ranger:
Also in the works is a proposal to Skeleton Key Games to utilize their e-Adventure Tiles sets as art in the game and then links to the suggested files used in the adventure. This way it keeps me working on the adventure instead of making maps
This is a sample of an encounter map in the adventure to show setup and map key info - it's just a test so it's pretty basic right now. Note that the tokens used in the images are for layout and will not be included in the product.

All looking great and very glad to see this in motion. With the Character sheet is there a chance of getting rid of the skills that don't have a value in it? This would shorten the sheet a number of line. I know at the moment that it's there for easy reference but it's bulky as it is.
Maybe adding in a skills reference sheet print out for a handout?

Jim: I actually do too many ranges for just one person, but I'm a bit mental.

I've got the pregen format down now to a 1/3 page so I can fit all 6 on two pages. All 6 will be done shortly and I've got to give a sample of what I'm doing with the maps over to Skeleton Key so I can get approved. The image below has been shrunk down for viewing purposes.
As it stands this product (free) can be used as an intro to Savage Worlds or the beginning of the Realms of Eldrath campaign. The final product will contain
- 6 pregens - 6 spell cards (each Arcane Background will have it's own spell list based off the OOB Savage Worlds spells but with custom trappings) - 2 item cards (magic items found during the encounter) - The encounter background and setup

It's tough going - I'm still in a funk but things are starting to get back to normal - including work.
I look to Jim as inspiration because he's just a machine and it make's me feel like a turd on how slowly I'm getting this together.
I'm really a novice when it comes to the technologies behind putting together everything - added to the fact that I'm a SW noob and still feeling my way through the rules (frequently referring to published products and web posts).
Enough rambling - I'm getting there though.
On the campaign front I'm finally putting together a product line-up and then a schedule behind it.
First up is the freebie - a 1 page encounter/adventure starter that'll have the pregens and associated materials.
After that I'm mulling over an actual campaign primer or maybe I'll follow Paizo's example and have part adventure/part campaign primer like they have in their Adventure Path series.
I'm working with some old friends of mine on some of the campaign/storyline material but we'll see how that works out.

In short - yes. I got sucked into a project at work, got side-tracked by WoW (evil it is), and volunteered for a 'zine project (only doing the technical side I swear - www.draconismag.com ), and then I was distracted by the shiny Pathfinder Compatibility Open License - which I may yet get approved for so One Monk art will be in a Pathfinder product of my design.
That being said - I'm selling off a large part of my gaming collection so:
1) I can pay off some GenCon debt yet from last year. 2) Limit my distractions:)
Look for 3 releases by the end of May in PDF (either on paizo.com or rpgnow/drivethru) and print on demand at Lulu.com.

Toman: yes. though the kids need to be reminded to put them away when they are done. I've come home from work and they are all watching tv while the bikes are sitting in the front lawn. kids

Toman: the bikes now go in the fenced back yard now. after nine years never had an issue with bikes, we did end up with an extra scooter last summer that no one could identify. I think because it was kind of a piece of junk

Vermin King: The family down the street from me has lost four bikes this year.

cowboyleland: Apparently bike theft is rife. Covid makes people want to bike instead of bus so it is a sellers market in the bike world. :/

Toman: bummer. my sons bike is missing, my twin girls bikes are still in the yard but his isn't. guess I need to go bike shopping today.
