Here's another example, the Kingdom of Nithia which was part of the Hollow World series for Mystara. The cover to the right was the one they ended up using, but it is interesting to see the cover on the right having a different color hue and only a single statue. I almost like the idea of using this one for a fan created HW sourcebook for Hutaaka.
What do you guys think of the alternate cover?

Now is your chance. A group who call themselves the United Geeks of Gaming are
hosting an event in Minnesota:
"A special event at the Source Comics and Games. Blackmoor game, the game that started it all! Guest Game Master Robert Meyer hosting a game that is the first and longest running Fantasy RPG! Bring pencil, paper, and 2 six sided dice! 🎲 United Geeks of Gaming has a day for role playing games! "
Robert Meyer played Robert the Bald, a powerful Wizard in Dave Arneson's campaign, and has DMed several Blackmoor games for the original group since Dave passed away. The Source is the gaming store where Dave ran many of his games.

Last year was an incredible year for Dave Arneson Day. This year we also have many things in store for you. Many people are reporting that they will be running games today. Others are posting blog articles or posting on the different forums where Blackmoor and Dave Arneson are being discussed. There is a Renessance Fair happening not to far from Dave Arneson's home in Minnesota today and we hope they might make some announcement regarding the day. Over at the Comeback Inn, Season 4 of the MMRPG (Free D&D adventures!) is about to be released.
