Fellows,

I'm happy to announce we have achieved our $6000 fundraising goal for the Astonishing Swordsmen & Sorcerers of Hyperborea Kickstarter Campaign. This will allow us to go to print early this year as planned, so thank you for the support, fellows! I am so very grateful for all the well wishes and pledges of support from my gaming peers.

Cheers,
Jeff T.

PS: If anyone is still interested in pledging, the fundraiser has 12 days remaining.

Post a link when the PDF goes online if you're using a reseller, and let us know if the hardcopy comes with a complimentary PDF. I'd be most inclined to go with a hardcopy, buy would prefer not to have to then shell out for a digital copy to go with it. Can't wait to see the first reviews of this, especially if they come from the playtesters who have already got through the learning curve. Ian Baggley's artwork is right on the button. Would like a sneek peek at the cartography.

I'd be all into it, if finances allowed it. All the best.

Thank you, mbassoc! Nothing is concrete yet as pertains to which PDF resellers we will use. Do folks here have preferences? Yes, the idea is that the $50 print copy of the game will include a complimentary PDF. And yes, Ian's art continues to amaze me. He is a unique talent, and I'm fortunate to have him on this project.

Here is a small snapshot that shows some of the cartography as rendered by Andreas Claren:

Yes, I think 4 as of this time. It was a good question for the FAQ at the bottom of the page. :)

Yes. That is the rate for just the fundraiser. When the fundraiser is over, normal shipping rates to the UK and elsewhere overseas will apply. Thanks for asking!

And thank you very kindly to the rest of you kind folks who have pledged from France, Italy and everywhere else! It is very much appreciated.

Cheers,
Jeff Talanian

You're probably the only person I know who could have spotted the error.

*g* Who said it was an error? *looks up latitude/hex size appendix*

(I don't recall that even JG went there, but am happy to be corrected! :))

Over $8600 now, congrats! Just setting up my $55 payment, looking forward to a copy in the future and the additional free pdf will be a massive bonus for me too! Thanks
