Peter has been working closely with Troll Lord Games and his art already graces the cover of the Castles & Crusades Players Handbook, the C&C Collector's Box and is set to grace the covers of the C&C Monsters and Treasure and C&C Castle Keepers Guide. You can view more of Peter's art at his own Raven Childe webpage.

Outstanding cover art by Peter Bradley.
