They announced it at the Live Reading at Origins and today is the day. :) The HackMaster GameMaster's Guide is available for pre-order. This is the book I'm most excited about! Like the PHB and the Hacklopedia of Beasts, a copy of the pre-release PDF is available for download immediately even though the book isn't finished yet.
It's fun getting a look behind the scenes as a book develops, but I've also got to give the guys credit for letting us watch them work. Some days it is really tough to write. Some days I can't come up with a paragraph to post on the blog, let alone thousands of words of a book. Having a bunch of eager fans looking over the work-in-progress helps them make a better product, but it's a lot of stress. I avoided a lot of the discussion threads about the PHB and HOB because the number of comments made my head spin...and I wasn't the one doing the creating. The guys at Kenzer & Company are some of the nicest people I've ever met. They really care about this product and THIS book is very special. Be sweet to them in the comment threads. :) Princess requests it. :)
