Ok, dear readers: the good news is that Dark Albion is almost done! As proof of that, we've now gotten to where we're talking covers and preparing to send out the print proof for final revision.
But, we've hit a slight snag of sorts: we can't decide which cover image to use! That's where you come in. Here are three potential covers for Dark Albion: The Rose War:
1) The old-timey cover. This one is the one most in line with our interior art, which consists of medieval art for the most part:
2) The "choosing the roses" cover. This is one of my favorite pieces of art, and is of course directly connected to the theme of the "war of the roses". On the other hand, it may not be sufficiently action-focused. What do you think?
3) Original artwork by Dominique Crouzet. Dom made his own cover, depicting a battle-scene. This would be the most OSR-like of choices, I would think. But of course, it lacks some of the classy 'artsyness' of the other two.
So tell us: which one do you like best? 1, 2, or 3? Give us your vote in the comments. We'll be tallying up the count to see what the overall impression of our public might be. And whatever gets the most popular support will be what we go with.
