The last two weeks have been spent updating artwork from the original FAL books. This update was done to make the original books look more like the upcoming books in style and tone. Over 50 pieces of new artwork have been created to replace original works found in the Core Rules, Creatures Vol 1, Companion Rules, and Tales of Awesome. Still to be updated are the maps of FAL. The main maps of the continents are being redrawn to reflect the map style that came to be prominent in the FAL adventures. I am still on the fence about keeping detailed hex maps or not. The original continent maps were small and hard to read. These are being replaced to show more detail and offer numbered locations that correspond to map descriptions.
The decision to update the artwork came alongside some errata fixes and some rule updates. Two of the big rules fixes were simplifying XP and leveling and siege weapons and TNs. While nothing has specifically changed concerning these rules, they have been made more clear and direct. Other changes include proofreading errors and grammar.
Anyway. So, here are a couple examples of old and new artwork from the original books (old stuff is on the left and new is on the right).
