Just started my AS&SH campaign. We're 3 sessions in so far.

Sadly, only one small Con on my radar for this year: TridentCon near Baltimore in October, I believe. That's a good one because James Spahn usually attends and runs some WhiteStar. I might run an AS&SH game. And another guy I know runs Stonehell (using C&C) which is a pretty good megadungeon.

2018 should see me return to Garycon though!
 

Will definitely make it to Trident Con this year and will hopefully bring several of my gaming group.
 

Sweet! I forget, where do you live? I tried to get some of my regular group to go last year but everyone bailed. It was all good though, had a blast anyway.

Down near Salisbury.  We missed last year as school became a problem.  Will be free of those chains and there in full force!!

Great news, Jeff! How many were made in total? And now that you are a confirmed success http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/stoned.png
, are you preparing your manse in Tahiti? Or do you prefer a location closer to Kthulu?

About 1,150 all sold from my home office, no distribution! ;)

Probably a castle in Wales. ;)
 

Beaumaris is a fine fixer-upper!!

Well, I got offered free flop space at a condo downtown, so I think I'll be going.  Will probably join you in running an on-grid game, Morgan.

Free downtown are terms unheard of for Gen Con congrats!  When were you hoping to run?

One small highlight from our very first AS&SH game last Saturday - playing Rats in The Walls, the PCs were in the basement of the tavern and discovered the secret trap door. They looked at it, Eric's barbarian grabbed the edge and with a loud roar did our first Extraordinary Feat of Strength LIKE A BOSS! Flipped that heavy flagstone like a tiddly-wink! Applause all around.

That's the stuff they remember forever!

I was wrangled into running a couple games for the Exile Games folks (Hollow Earth Expedition) and was wondering if any of the esteemed fellows on this board would be attending?  Lige are you running again this year?  I would potentially run some ASSH but wanted to coordinate with others.

I printed out play copies from the pdf's and had them spiral-bound at Staples (as a bonus, they're larger and easier to read).  No one else is laying a finger on any part of my boxed set. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/lol.png

Ditto.  If they get beat up a little then so be it.  I have couple extra PHB's at the table as well.  As was pointed out i can read them without specs so win!

The 2nd ed will get some special treatment like a wrapping it in the skin of a shaved yeti.....

The Gods seem to be indifferent to good and evil.  Thamagorga (sp?) is the only evil god and must go out of his way to bring suffering and misery.  

Law for me is order and resistance to change.  Chaos is dis-order and constant change.  Artemis would have similar worship practices the world over with expected outcomes for expected behaviors. Xathoqqua worship on the other hand would be different based on the local practices with relatively capricious reactions to the behavior of his worshipers. 

I think good and evil is determined by humans and their cultural beliefs.  Do the Hyperborean gods care how the people treat each other? Only in so much as it impacts their agenda.

This is the way I handle it anyway.  Your way will be equally as valid.

Better get these adventures written....Everything with a Hyperborea tag has sold out.  I think this was a help for folks to find the games.

I also have a couple games with waiting list folks.  Not sure how to handle this for fairness sake but that's the least of my worries right now.
