Castle of the Mad Archmage May Bonus Release Now Available!

Happy Birthday!

That is, it being my birthday, I hereby present a special bonus May release of Castle of the Mad Archmage. This release introduces Level 6A - The Sub-Labyrinth, and serves as the main point of connection between Levels 6 and 7.

This release also presents the debut of Steve Rubin as proofreader for the work, and I've incorporated his many corrections, inconsistencies, and so forth. Some of the maps also bear the marks of his eagle eyes and tireless zest for detail. He also suggested adding a bit to the overview of the dungeons, and the work as a whole is much better for his contribution. Thanks, Steve.

Here are also corrected versions of the poster maps for Levels 3 and 5, and anew poster for Level 6, for your edification.

Next up, as you can see over to the right, is Level 7: Crypts. This is turning into a really fun level to write, but it's going to take some time to do it right, so this two-fer in May might end up being balanced by no June release. We'll have to see.

Enjoy, and please keep sending in the feedback. It really is appreciated.

PS: I am not sure why the thumbnails of the cover won't upload properly. They should be a cream color, but they insist on uploading as the purple May cover. I'll keep plugging away at it, but the download link itself seems to be pointing to the right place.
