Re: AFS 6 - Upcoming

Thanks HH! I look fwd to reading those

Great Lestrade, I printed up and read the adventure you submitted awhile ago. I like it quite a bit. A nice change up from a standard dungeon with a cool setting and background. I am going to edit some of it, I will email you some thoughts on that

If you wanted to submit a short piece I think it would be cool to include:
some rolled up  interesting NPCs that were of variant classes that Ghul/Jeff has made:
ie.
A Cryomancer
A Purloiner
can't quite recall if there were others

Just a suggestion if you are up to it. Thanks as always

Re: AFS 6 - Upcoming

I am not sure which issues or zines the Cryomancer or Purloiner appeared in, but i could write an npc for one of them. I have 3 issues AFS, 2 Gygax, all of fight on, etc.

Re: AFS 6 - Upcoming

*Update -  Stardate November 11 2014*

Got quite a bit of editing work done the other eve. Things taking shape and still hoping for a Thanksgiving-ish end of month release. Cover art and some other art all set.

This will be a last call for submissions (within next 7 days or so) if Ghul or grodog or anyone else has anything, thanks!

Scaly, what would you think about compiling the random enc. tables for AS&SH from this thread:
http://hyperborea.boardhost.com/viewtopic.php?id=166
into an article? Ghul, me, Ynas Midgard, and Great_Lestrade have some pieces there. You have permission to use mine (Gal Hills).

And if you had time, maybe the folks about could come up with a couple more to add to it: Khromarium, Spiral Mountain Array, Hyperborean Sea, Plateau of Leng are some possibilities. Any interest?

Cool! I reference that in my Gal Hills random-enc. table.

I could be talked into compiling and editing, if we can get everyone's permission. It would most likely have to be for the next issue though, I'm crazy with work right now.

Re: AFS 6 - Upcoming

Looks potentially cool, but would realistically at this stage have to wait for a future issue.

The page count for AFS 6 is looking pretty strong/full already (still holding out hope for Jeff's variant class though as that would be awesome and I'm sure well likedhttp://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/happy.png
).

Three complete adventures will be in AFS 6, all of which I like a lot and could make for fun multi-session gaming - so this issue should be well worth the meager price tag when I get it out (Two are written for AS&SH, one is written for B/X)

Re: AFS 6 - Upcoming

When will you begin taking orders, Scaley? Or did I miss it already?

Re: AFS 6 - Upcoming

Wrath of the Sea God Khulk-Xu is much better than the original title - The Bath house.

Re: AFS 6 - Upcoming

This is looking like a really useful installment of AFS. Can't wait to see that Huntsman, new classes are always welcome!

Re: AFS 6 - Upcoming

Firing up the gas lamp...doing some editing & layout this eve. Hope to put this up for pre-order within a week from now.

Got the covers back today. My cell phone camera is terrible, but you can at least see what the issue will look like. It is actually sort of a forest green color but that didn't come out well in the pic. (Looks better in person)
