My requests for significant NPCs:

The Captain of the Guard?

Nicodemus?

Lord Azzur?

That pirate legend from Titan whose name escapes me at the moment?

The guildmasters of the Thieves' Guild?

The actual head of the Thieves' Guild (it's Mrs Pipe, isn't it)?

Hister Brey, Executioner?

Mr Alden, thief for hire?

Dietrich Zuvembar?

Madame Star (she seriously can't have a skill of 10)?

I'd definitely like Lord Azzur to have a campaign set around him with some kind of re-vamping of the maps for the the castle including the grounds. I had the idea that the adventurers could start imprisoned in the castle and had to escape, but a lot of the time I had to design the maps myself and I had no idea what kind of stats Azzur had and what traditions he held in what to do with prisoners etc. :P

Those NPC's will certainly feature, and there will be a lot more info on the castle etc. I doubt there will be a campaign or adventure as such, but there will be adventure hooks and ideas.

Looks like progress is being made on the Heroes Companion. How is Blacksand getting on?

Did you think about adding a conversion for AFF of the gamebook "The City of Thieves" (see also viewtopic.php?f=13&t=370)?

Are the small adventures set in Port Blacksand from the Dungeoneer and Blacksand! incorporated?
And how about the City of Thieves and Midnight Rogue?

Or is it a more descriptive book / gazzetteer, like Titan?

The writing of the main manuscript should be finished tomorrow (hurrah), and the book will contain:

Sailing rules
Blackpowder weapons
Naval Sorcery
Random Settlement generation

A detailed guide to Blacksand:
History
Organisations
Districts

Also, adventure hooks, a new Blacksand map etc

The adventure is not included, but we plan to revise and re-release the complete campaign at a later date.

Ooh gunpowder! Vereh nice for simple fire-arms. ;) Details of districts will be extremely useful to me. Also will there be detailed maps of Azzur's palace perhaps??? :D :D :D
