Amethyst Evolutions - My first look at something awesome
Dias Ex Machina, was nice enough to send me an advanced copy of one of the chapters from the upcoming Amethyst Evolutions. I can't exactly show off the chapter itself, but he did give me permission to talk about it. I have not yet had time enough to print the chapter out, lay on the floor, and then play in all the pages, but that is pretty much the extent of how amazing the chapter was. Chapter 2 of the book brings several new interpretations of the older races, some new races (including the Kodiaks, which I showed off in one of my earlier sneak peak photos from the book) as well as the thing that I wanted the most... ORGANIZATIONS. I thought the organizations in the first book were awesome, but I wanted more. These are awesome as well, and I STILL WANT MORE!!! I think I might have to beg Chris to do a book full of just organizations at some point. It's like giving your adventuring group a nice big club to be a part of. If you hadn't seen the cover to the book yet, it has been up on the Dias Ex Machina site since the end of March, but I haven't had a chance to throw it up here on the site yet. He said they are getting pretty close to completing it, so I am very much looking forward to reviewing it and bringing you all of the juicy Amethyst details when they finally come out.
