Part 3: The Last Five Years and Beyond Starting the new year in 2017, I prepared to work on what I would call Chapter III of the module.

Re: Hearkenwold

Part 2: Early Stages of Development Looking back at the actual construction of the module, the IceBlink engine has undergone many changes and versions over the past decade. Hearkenwold was started before we even had a tilemap maker, and when tile and token sizes were 50 x 50. Without many art assets...

Re: Slowdive's Little Daily Blog

slowdive, I was able to watch yesterday's stream of Raventhal a few hours afterward. It was great to see the 3D view in the iceblink basic version. Looked like a lot of fun with the fans following along.

I imagine that's how an NPC might say the name, trying to make it sound spooky for dramatic effect:

"Beware the Glooomwood!"
