'Role playing, not rule-playing'.  Well done, Thom!

Received today and I'm very pleased.  The first print was a super bonus thank you!  

Will there be scenerios to follow?


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

Dave,

Thank you! (and you're welcome)

I've been asked by several people if I plan to print any of the current adventures on my site - the super-ambiguous answer is, "maybe".  I've tried a print of "Crypt of Mandazed" on Lulu, and the cover is reversed (I hope to fix it by end of day tomorrow).  I've contemplated printing all of my current adventures in one book, much like I did all the guidelines in the All-in-One Guide.  I have 3 adventures nearly finished: "In Defense of Thuil", "The Evil Within", and "Walking Dead in to Umfall" - I'd like to get those done before considering anything else.

Staged and ready to be written is my twelve plus level B/X adventure that I'm hoping to launch this year as a KS.  It will be digest sized and likely come in a plain white box.  I have 4 artists lined up for work, just need to finish the aforementioned adventures for TSRS first.  Note that this boxed set will be for B/X and not my system - to commemorate the 40th anniversary as well as finally print an adventure for B/X, something I've always wanted to do.  I'll likely adapt the adventure to my system in 2015.

You can always check my website for details on new downloads, which are still free of charge.  [ throwigames.com ]

Thanks!

Blackmoor,

My pleasure, and thanks for backing the All-in-One Guide.

I hope more people follow our methodology:  write, illustrate, and edit the work before going live with the project!  For example, here's a project from Sine Nomine just down the road from me in New Haven CT (okay, not literally down the road, but CT is pretty small):  Scarlet Heroes RPG by Kevin Crawford — Kickstarter - he's launching the project with the work already completed.

Thanks again!

Thom (throwi)

I've backed all of their Kickstarters so far, and have been really happy with both the quality and delivery time.  There are also options to get books from the earlier Kickstarters as well.

Thank you!

I got Throwi's a couple of days ago and feel honored to be named as a peer of his in your post. My only complaint about Throwi's is its sealed and I hand to open it. Now I need to get another.

Hi All,

It's been a long time since I didn't post any update for Grimtooth 3.0, the new French opus of Grimtooth Traps and I'm glad to announce that all the texts are done.
There is only few illustrations to finish (from Earl Geier, and Emmanuel Roudier).
I hope that the books will be released in march.
It is still available for sale on narrativiste editions store.

For those are interested, here is an illustration for one of the numerous unpublished traps. This one will be published in Casus Belli magazine (issue #9).

For those JG fans, a preview of CSIO KS:

City State of the Invincible Overlord by Judges Guild — Kickstarter

A high goal?  Anyone think that they'll hit that?

Not sure if they would get there or not, but there are a lot of us that would be supporting it. They would definitely get some funds from me but how much, it depends on how the final break downs are configured.

I think I would mainly be supporting it to help support the company to be honest though. I have the original, I have the Mayfair remake, I have the Necromancer Games remake, so why not another "re-imagining" from the original company?

I would think that this will be in similar quality to the Necromancer book. A broader question would be, should JG be going down the physical product quality route, or get back to their beginnings and get out decent quality but "cheap" physical products?

The original set was sold for $9.00 if I remember correctly. Necromancers copy was $35 I think. The cheapest this time around (for physical copy) is either $75 or $100. Would they sell more if they put out a lesser "quality" physical product but at a cheaper price point? Not sure either way...just throwing it out into the aether ;-)

It was a preview page - the project owner might have pulled it down to retool it.  it was working earlier.
