As I have posted before, I have been working on a book about Battle Gaming (Belegarth, Dagorhir, Amtgard, Darkon). The first printing is now available.

http://www.amazon.com/Battle-Gaming-New-American-Sport/dp/0984483403

I look forward to seeing what people think of it.

That's Lizard of Mordor on the cover. Good photo of him. I'd know that helm anywhere.

Embara,

I here you. My lawyer advised me against it. His arguments included: too many different standards, too much DRM churn, too easy to share on torrent. He advised to put out paper first and watch the ebook market to see how it plays out with the arival of the new iPad competitors. So it is still on my radar, but I have alot going on. I really have not had the time to investigate the options fully.

But your inquiry has me thinking about it again.

Actually that is Jake who has a similar helmet. Both are members of the Army or Mordor. The helmet is the defacto standard of the Army of Mordor. There are a few nice pictures of Lizard in the book. The book has quite a few Mordor pictures since that is my realm.

I said what I thought about the rules and the general idea behind the book before, when he asked.
Now it's about the dudes art and business, both. So congrats on getting published. That's cool for anybody.
