In Other News....
We've decided to leap frog over
larger books and release issues of
Excavator Monthly Magazine on or
about the 15th of each month. Our
goal then is to have issue one
available August 15th. This of
course slows the releases of larger
books, but feel that the content
injection of TME content into our
growing fan base will be well
received, and bring attention and
new gamers to The Mutant Epoch RPG
In The Pipes
mentioned above, we will be proceeding with
the monthly magazine at once. Nevertheless,
the layout for the full version of
Pitford: Gateway to the Ruins is done
and we have commenced interior
illustrations, of which there will be 111,
with the full confirmed page count of 188.
Scheduled release date late September 2011.
Society of Excavator members who purchase
The Mall of Doom, we've added a Game
Masterís only Downloads page for the
adventure. Here you can find either
individual PDF pages of the maps, player
handouts, new relics NPCs and new creature
contained in the adventure book, also
available is a handy all -in one PDF
containing all these documents for free
download. While owners of the PDF can
simply print off pages as needed, those of
you with the print version may not want to
cut up their book, so can log in and grab
PDFs as needed, especially the
map, which has a hex grid on it so the GM
and players can draw it.

from New Zealand, Dean's art is as good as
it comes, and a treasure trove of ideas for
game masters! Check out his robots and
soldiers, not to mention the Greek hoplites.
Looking at his work inspires me to step up

Music for Gaming
music to set the mood for your The Mutant
Epoch or other RPG sessions? Here are a few
of my favorites available for free on
Grooveshark.com. What I love about
Grooveshark is you don't need to download
anything, or buy an album before you've
fallen in love with it. I am a huge fan of
soundtracks, partly because there are no
lyrics, since somebody singing draws my
attention away from the often technical or
word based work I have before me.
The first selection is the Hans Zimmer
soundtrack to one of my favorite movies:
Black Hawk Down, followed by
the move with Mel Gibson in it called
We Were Soldiers, followed by
my favorite, Invincible. I've
heard a few tracks from Invincible in
previews for upcoming film, and am not sure
what Invincible is from, but suspect it was
a computer game. If anybody out there on the
list knows, please let me know.
short issue this time around, but we wanted
to let everybody know that
The Mall of Doom was available
now and that we were busy on the magazine.
