Welcome!

Welcome to the Official AS&SH Discussion Forums! It has been five years since North Wind Adventures introduced Charnel Crypt of the Sightless Serpent at Gary Con I. If you are reading this message, I hope you've arrived because you have an interest in the AS&SH game, the inspirational materials from which it is derived, or other forms of traditional (or "old school") tabletop gaming. 

My name is Jeff Talanian, otherwise known as "Ghul" at various forums and messageboards, and HYPERBOREA is a pastiche—my own poutpourri of original and advanced Gygaxian fantasy gaming that is heavily inspired by sword-and-sorcery and weird fantasy fictional materials, including but not limited to the works of Robert E. Howard, H.P. Lovecraft, and Clark Ashton Smith. Happy gaming! 

—Jeff Talanian (March, 2014)

And sweat at the daily round,
While in my soul forever
The drums of Pictdom sound?”

Excellent. Great to see you fine gentlemen aboard. How does the color scheme look on your phone / laptop / whatever-device-you-are-using?

Re: Welcome!

I'm using whatever scheme is the default and it looks fine to me. Seems easy enough to read.

Re: Welcome!

I'm on my Droid and both versions look fine to me. The full desktop version looks just like most other forums, the mobile version looks to be set up differently from others but looks easy to navigate.

Yeah, I tried it on my phone, and it looks pretty good. Hi, Bill!

Re: Welcome!

It looks very good Jeff. Is there a way to auto subscribe to threads I post in? I think I missed that somewhere.
Be well everyone!

Re: Welcome!

Yeah there's also something when you used the advanced posting about emailing when there are new posts.
It'll take me a minute, I'm a social worker, not a PbbbTtttt guy. ;)

That's OK! I'm happy to have you around, and I appreciate that you picked up the PDF.

Cheers,
