Webcomics maestro Howard Tayler is doing the illustrations for the next book from Tracy Hickman, XDM:  Xtreme Dungeon Mastery, which will be released at Gen Con Indy in August, according to a post on Tayler’s blog.


The book, which Hickman co-wrote with his son, “The Amazing Curtis,” will be published by Tayler, using his experience from self-publishing collections of his Webcomics, Schlock Mercenary. 


XDM will help develop game master skills to the next level.  Hickman co-created Ravenloft and DragonLance for Dungeons and Dragons.
