I've got a new book out.  It's... um... different:

 

Hammer on Stone: Poetry of the Dwarves

 

Yes, all the verse you can stand about war, drinking, mining, and ancestor worship all in one place. It's out on Lulu now and will be available at the Paizo store after Gen Con.

 

It's also available in PDF.

 

I hope some of you will check it out!

Thanks! I shared it with one of the contributors over at GeekDad and he said that it made him want to roll up a dwarf Bard for his next game!

 

Still trying to figure out how many copies to print up for sale at GenCon. It's kind of weird sell.

He's not the only one.

 

You know that when I run the Giantslayer adventure path it's going to be for an All Dwarf Party, right? :).

Oh absolutely. However, it's going to be after Shattered Star (which is currently nearing the end of book 4). Shattered Star is unfortunately on hold due to one of the players getting a new job which is making it difficult to arrange session times and another successfully getting his wife pregnant. I'm not expecting to be able to run a session any time soon. I joked that we'd best give it about two years. That might actually end up being a rather more serious prediction than I originally intended.

You might be amused to know that I vastly underestimated the demand for Dwarven Poetry at Gen Con 2015. The book sold out less than halfway through the convention!!

 

Still available on lulu though. :)

So the assignment was to write a sonnet in iambic pentameter form.
Three stanzas, four lines apiece, ten syllables per line, and a romantic couplet to top it off.

Without further ado:

Onward, my Dwarves go out to strike the earth,
at this embark the dire wolves are wary.
Throughout the winter we must build our hearth,
because terrifying embarks are quite scary.

Skeletal groundhogs are a fearsome sight,
to my poor Dwarves awash with crippling fear.
If you would like to cure some Dwarven fright,
then nothing is as good as Dwarven beer.

But alas, I digress, one thing is best,
for tantrum spiral or berserk grandma.
It will solve all your problems ‘pon request,
use careful application of magma.

If a Dwarf should want to have a lil’ fun,
then please, I beseech you, run now; just run.


Thoughts? :) I've seen some excellent DF poetry threads before.
