Bringing some class to NUELOW Games

One of the first releases in the NUELOW Games fiction line was my "remaster" of John Kendrick Bangs' fabulous tales of the Associated Shades of Hades, "Houseboat on the River Styx". We felt the fact we could say "Look! It's Shakespeare!" lent a touch of class to an outfit that otherwise specializes in offerings featuring supermodels beating each other up, and mockery of current political and pop cultural events.

But, seeing that I'm desperate to be respected and taken seriously as a writer, critic, and game designer, I'm once again trying to infuse a little class into the NUELOW Games line-up. I'm returning to the Shakespeare/Houseboat well.

Here's the cover for the next release for the "ROLF!: The Rollplaying Game of Big Dumb Fighters". Shakespeare and other Houseboat characters make a return, and Edward de Vere, Earl of Oxford, is added to the mix. There will also be a very special guest star, a newcomer to the Houseboat crew. Can you spot him in the picture?
