    Hello everyone! I'm happy to announce that Relics by Rild will be publishing the new issue of the official SotA comic book, Shroud of the Avatar: New Beginnings. Issue #1 is complete and I am moving to print soon. We are selling 4 pages of ad space this time 'round. This space is perfect for advertising your guild, town, organization, store or vendor! There are also 'personal size ads' for only $25 each. Take this opportunity to reach a bigger audience and enshrine your SotA legacy in a collectible print item that will be treasured for years to come.

    This is Issue #1 (the premiere Issue #0 is available here). One of our favorite community artists, Indi Martin (Patreon, Etsy, Kickstarter, Gina Harwood Novels) is the artist, William Billman wrote the first two, and Indi is in the process of selecting a writer for Issue #2.

    Sizes, pricing, and availability are as follows. Please contact Rild at ben@relicsbyrild.com to reserve your ad space, or if you have any questions. All this information is available on my site here.

    PLEASE NOTE: Dimensions are for 300 dpi and must be followed exactly.

    Yay! Super excited for people to be able to put their mark on the issue! Point of order, though, William Billman wrote #1 (and #0), while #2 will see a change in writer/s, but that's still very early. :)

    Would you consider an "RP ad" space? :) Ah the things I would do if I had the money to spend..

    I would imagine that anything goes as long as it's relatively SotA-related? I don't know if Rild has any stricter guidelines he's going by, but I would guess it wouldn't be a problem.

    Of course.. I'm just daring to hope for the possibility of a modest free space that isn't necessarily self promoting. Something that's just for color.

    Thought.. contest for 1 space per issue? Not necessarily a big one. I suppose that might be a bit much.. I mean printing these doesn't come free after all there needs to be a profit involved. I just think it'd be awesomely cool to have more community and RP related stuff in the mix. :)

    A promotional contest for space is definitely a consideration, and I'm open to ideas down the road.
    For this initial printing I just want to get it to press and make sure it comes out right.
    The this model works and is popular, we might offer more space or other content in the future - one consideration is we didn't want to fill the book with too many ads compared to the actual comic, so we limited it to 4 pages (2 front 2 back).

    Just realized I didn't include the dimensions of the comic - these are standard modern comic size which is 6.625 x 10.25 inches, or 16.827 x 26.035 cm.
