Hey everyone! I am still alive, and well, even though life has been demanding and kept me away from the site for quite a while now, but I do drop by once in a while, read a few posts and work with a few things Midnight on the background. I wanted to let you know a few things as I got a little more time with the computer right now.

First the long awaited, long delayed and forever promised Tome of Sorrows volume 2. It is still in the works, I know, it is taking longer than forever, 2nd edition of the setting came, 4th edition has been announced and is just around the corner and this thing is still in the works. thing is, I haven't dropped it out of my schedule and am nearing the end of it, I hope to have it sooner than you are thinking at this time. No more promises, but I have picked a few things to do and selected some to drop for the first release, leaving them for the community to help after it is out.

Second, I know the site needs the remaining 50 articles that are pending, and I also had a few offers of old content sent to me as PMs, I will get to those once the Tome is out, so just keep it coming, don't hold back, any new work is not placed on this queue but is dealt with right away instead. Additionally, I am considering on reviewing all "staff" positions on the site, to reflect the current state (this means moderation, administration and anything else one can do behind the scenes on the site). Right now it looks like I am the one doing most of that stuff.

Other than that, I would like to thank everyone who is keeping this community alive, the PMs and e-mails sent to me and all, I miss all the old folks, and meeting the newcomers, reading your posts and debating ideas is something I miss and plan to come back to. So keep the community around for me okay. I am Gming a slow Midnight game right now, using the Unisystem rules (cinematic or light version, found in Buffy or Angel, with changes), and plan to share my ideas and thoughts with you guys soon enough.

May the Shadow be with you all, my friends!

We still love you Nif even if the articles and Tome vol 2 take a while longer to come out.  The old ATS crowd never truly goes away, we just lurk in the Shadows.

Seems like Tome of Sorrows 2 is our very our Duke Nukem Forever... or maybe Grimm will be a better comparison since Grimm did come out eventually. mrgreen

Nice to see you around Nif Smiley

Just because I worked a lot on it on these last three days, I present you the cover of the 2nd volume of the Tome of Sorrows: The Shadow Ascendant!

Nif,

Outstanding.  It will be great to see some of the old content gathered together in one place.  Love the cover and title.

Yeah, the cover is made with Dain's borders, the Midnight logo I took from the 2nd edition pdf, the image is from thatpdf as well and the title, well I am keeping Ashrem's choice, for old time's sake. Smiley

I took about 4 hours to do both the cover and the back cover yesterday.

That image, whether as stand-alone piece or serving as a 'MIDNIGHT Motivational Poster' ala http://www.againsttheshadow.org/index.php?topic=969.0 is the most symbolic piece of art outta all the ones in this setting.  Its the quintessential MIDNIGHT spokesperson.  The painting is saying, "Hey, this is what the world is about.  Get used to it, or die trying."

It should have been the cover of the core book and is an excellent choice for ToS2.  Nice job.

Well, I may not be a good artist myself but at least I can appreciate good art done by others. Cool

You gotta see this baby guys, it really is looking wonderful! (you guys do know you can see a larger image than the one shown, right? I made it a link now, just click on the image shown. The borders will probably be different though. Smiley
