New Website!

Still under heavy construction, but for the eyes of you alone, fellows, the most distinguished of gamers:

http://www.hyperborea.tv/

Cheers,

Re: New Website!

Wow, very nice, Ghul! That looks good: slick and professional.

I, for one, would like to thank the good people of Tuvalu for their hosting generosity. Perhaps a Hyperborean people can be named for them in their honor!

We already have! I like to think of them as the future Atlanteans! 😉

Looks good!  The new adventures sound cool. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/wink.png

Re: New Website!

Fantastic!  Site looks great Jeff, and I have shared it with my group. The covers look awesome! Cheers for Mullen!

Re: New Website!

Yes, that Mullen cover is a knockout.  It perfectly captures the spirit of the adventure too. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/lol.png

Both of the others are great as well.  The Fane cover is awesome in color. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/love.png

Re: New Website!

Man, that looks so good! I especially like the font and covers of the new adventures. Like you say, it's still under construction, but it looks very professional already

Re: New Website!

Out of curiosity, why .tv, Jeff? 

The site looks good so far, although I would suggest freezing your top page header so that it remains in place as you scroll down through the rest of the site.  Are you planning to have a section for published products, or will they all be listed on the home page?

Re: New Website!

Art and covers look great, Jeff! Looking forward to playing or running these adventures, as the case may be. Thanks to you, BA23 and joseph for your work on them!

I was just gawking at the covers again. Must say, I'm really looking forward to reading your module Ben!

Re: New Website!

I like the new site a lot! The Kickstarter page is very colorful and pops right at you! The "about" page describing the classes with sample pics draws the new folks in well.

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

Thank you!  I'm really looking forward to reading yours as well. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/smile.png

(I already read Jeff's because I made a map for it.  It's his best adventure to date.) http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/love.png

Re: New Website!

Thanks, Ben!
No doubt, I'm reading through Ghost Ship now, a little at a time and it is excellent!

I liked it. the .com, .net, and .org were not avaialble for "Hyperborea" and .tv was the easiest sounding to me, and it's been growing in popularity over the last few years. I like it because it rolls off the tongue easily, it is easy to remember, and it is fast to type. And I want to save the good people of Tuvalu before the ocean drinks them like a cup of Atlantis. ;)

Work in progress. There will be a products page, yes. Thanks, Allan!

Very kind of you to say! I'm always very critical of my own stuff, but I know lots of people are like that.

Re: New Website!

impressed.

one suggestion. On the KS page, either put a link to the KS very obviously, or note that it is not running yet but will be soon.
