Mission: Highly Improbable
« on: March 25, 2012, 02:38:36 PM »
Did Mission: Highly Improbable ever get published. I realized that I never actually saw that book. I noticed it isn't referenced in the Master Index. Yet it appears in many online book stores- none in which actually have it.

Unfortunately, it was never released. The creators (our friends) ended up opening up a very successful game store in the UK, Fanboy 3.

Sniped by Alex - I was gonna say that it's not in my collection (which has every other book).

You just gotta love the 1st Edition artwork, don't you?  2.0 had some cool stuff, but the Artwork from the Silver and Shadowforce Archer lines was absolutely superb.

Her work was the best. What are the chances of her doing the covers for Third Edition books?

I want you to know we read this. I also want you to know that this is the only reply I can offer.

Take that as you will.

I'll take that as not a no. (also not a yes, but more importantly- not a no)

I feel like quoting Lloyd Christmas.

Either way, I'm sure 3rd will have smashing art - just based on the stuff in Fantasy Craft and Adventure Companion (the latter of which Veronica V Jones did the cover for - which bodes well, in my totally uninformed opinion).  If that style and quality continues, I'll be a happy camper.

I did particularly love her cover for Dark Inheritance (the Powered by Spycraft version, which is all I have - just in case others are different).  Really makes me wanna run 10k Bullets + Spellbound.

The d20 Modern version's cover is less appealing. The picture is not bad, strictly speaking, but it's quite sketchy and doesn't have the power of Veronica Jones' work.
