I really liked the art for (I think his name was Figment?) he was that imaginary guy. I would think any new art for him would be awesome.

Yes, I like that art. and if the intention is to add new art, re-do many or all of the old characters and then add some extra. I'd be down with that and support a kickstarter. I might even want a T-shirt along with the book and pdf.

As far as 25 seperate 'books'. I like the idea of having a two volume set, but I thought you guys might do the Fires of War book too and would that be an additional book or two?

I enjoyed these books from 1e and own the 2e pdf's, but a new 3e set of books would be great.

You're welcome Alex. I'm really looking forward to seeing all of the finished work.

The art for this product looks fantastic! I'm in for at least the pdf. I really like the open design format that allows GMs to easily adapt the characters to their games.

I'm hoping Aaron will post a few more pieces of artwork after the new year, as I really want to see what character designs Alex has come up with.

He's been waiting on me - I'm a bit behind as I've had seemingly chronic computer problems plus some coloring issues (not computer related), but I'll have a TON of art to Aaron in the next few days, so after the New Year sounds right for new art.
Cheers, Alex

Hopefully you get all your computer issues resolved. Just out of curiosity, which letter of the alphabet are you up to, as it seems you've been going in alphabetical order.

And a bit more info on Algernon FIles and a second product, from Aaron's blog.

The Official Handbook of Blah, Blah, Blah…
Posted on January 23, 2014

Almost forgot, I do have a couple of pieces of news I can report – format and an additional product.

After a lot of discussion (and I do mean a lot), we’ve decided to go the route of individual volumes numbering between 12 to 20 entries each, depending on how the layout shakes out. This makes the scheme manageable (I have about 230 entries planned out numbering over 400 characters all told), so that will keep things flowing over the next few years reliably at nice quarterly chunks in the slightly less than 50 pages each range. Affordable, digestible, and a sane amount of work. More discussion there once we have a finalized layout.

Also, we’re putting together a small product tentatively called Juvenile Injustice (JI) to coincide with the release from Green Ronin of a 3e version of Hero High. JI will include three sections, covering

[1] How to run teen villains (written by the inestimable Jack Norris…go on, try to estimable him…I dare ya)

[2] The Winters Academy for the Exceptional Student (written by me with some additional student body provided by a few brave volunteers – more word later as stuff rolls in)

and

[3] The Seven Sins (a newbie team of villains who all recently graduated the Winters Academy together)

As usual, as I have news to throw at ya about any of this, I’ll run here and air all the dirty laundry. You’re welcome.

Here's the latest from Aaron's blog.


News Break
Posted on March 6, 2014

Okay. I have an update. Yay.

Draft is finished and in the hands of the editor. Check.

Art is finished and in. Well, except for the cover. Check.

Now, on to post-editing and then to layout.

I continue to think highly of Jon, James and others who have gone through the Other-Than-Writing stuff on theses before. Sheesh. You’re never done.


Personally, I can't wait to see the final product.
