Do you have a kickstarter link or is that in the works?

Are these modules going to be released separately, or as one package? Will the front of each module indicate the levels or is that just a particular design choice?

Are there any plans for a LV 1-3 adventure? I apologize if you've already released one. If you have, do you have plans to reprint using the new design/templates?

Btw.. can I say the signage on your modules looks fantastic and the designs look great? Well done! I've been following your work, the (newish) boxset, etc. with great interest.

Hello s-to-s-g,

No link yet, coming soon!

They will be printed at the same time, and there will be a package deal in the KS if you buy all three. I might indicate the levels on the back covers. I don't feel confined to follow the choices of past layout designs.

Are there any plans for a LV 1-3 adventure? I apologize if you've already released one. If you have, do you have plans to reprint using the new design/templates?


I've got one already, Rats in the Walls. I'm sure there will be more i the future. It's out of print right now. It will be printed again. I haven't thought about its layout; I'm too busy with the current project.

Btw.. can I say the signage on your modules looks fantastic and the designs look great? Well done! I've been following your work, the (newish) boxset, etc. with great interest.


Thanks for the kind words!

Cheers,
Jeff T.

I am a masochist and I do both styles so far but I COMPLETELY agree with not feeling confined to past styles. So much of what is available from small press publishers has grown better and more polished than the originals to which we are nostalgically attached. I am thrilled to make the retro styles when I print the first batch but enjoy the flexibility of modern design software when creating the second.

I am, of course, excited for this Kickstarter.

Looking good, Jeff!

I'm also looking forward to playing Forgotten Fane of the Coiled Goddess at NTX this year =)

Did I miss the Kickstarter for the AS&SH new modules?  I thought it was supposed to go up early this year.

Nope. Ghul's been getting as much done as possible ahead of time and, I think, hoping to launch in the next few weeks.

Here's a link to what could be considered the official thread.

My friends,

The new Kickstarter campaign is now live! 

Image

HYPERBOREA ADVENTURE THREE-PACK

The award-nominated role-playing game, Astonishing Swordsmen & Sorcerers of Hyperboreaâ„¢ is back with three new, exciting adventures! 

Ghost Ship of the Desert Dunesâ„¢ (Talanian)
Forgotten Fane of the Coiled Goddessâ„¢ (Salvador)
Beneath the Cometâ„¢ (Ball)

Each of these sword-and-sorcery adventure modules is site-based, fleshing out some small portion of the Hyperborea setting and providing classic, memorable adventure material. These adventures are designed for the AS&SHâ„¢ game, but they are suitable for use with the traditional editions of the world's most popular RPG, as well as its modern simulacra, such as OSRICâ„¢ and Swords & Wizardryâ„¢.

Physically, each module will be saddle-stitched, range from approximately 44 to 56 pages, and measure 8.5 x 11 inches. Each will feature full-colour, card stock covers, and sharp, black & white interiours.

Good stuff! I have played two of these so far and enjoyed them both. Also, I think the art looks fantastic as well. Kudos to your artists.  :D

I'm in!

Good luck with the project, sure looks like a winner :)


I draw the line at collecting... D&D Towels.

Did we need: Jade Magi Sewer Crawl

Shoulda been: ".. from Pangreenia to Floratopolis, from mystical Treeonia of spectral Forests to Schruborial dimensions."  - The Forests of Leng

Jeff, how much of the writing, editing, art and layout is finished at this point?

In my opinion, this is how an RPG kickstarter should launch... kudos Jeff :)

From KS:

The writing, editing, cover art, interiour art, maps, and cover design are all complete. Once this Kickstarter funds, the only tasks to complete will be layout, printing, and shipping.

Stretch goals are another concern. Of course, the idea is to create stretch goals that provide incentive for additional funding, but it is easy to fall into the trap of dreaming up stretch goals that are difficult, costly, or time-consuming to produce. To this end, I've come up with modest, reasonable stretch goals.
