HYPERBOREA ADVENTURE THREE-PACK KICKSTARTER IS NOW LIVE!

My friends,

The new Kickstarter campaign is now live! 

http://i408.photobucket.com/albums/pp161/ghul576/hyp-adv-3pack_zpsn4wigvcf.jpg


HYPERBOREA ADVENTURE THREE-PACK

The award-nominated role-playing game, Astonishing Swordsmen & Sorcerers of Hyperborea™ is back with three new, exciting adventures! 

Ghost Ship of the Desert Dunes™ (Talanian)
Forgotten Fane of the Coiled Goddess™ (Salvador)
Beneath the Comet™ (Ball)

Each of these sword-and-sorcery adventure modules is site-based, fleshing out some small portion of the Hyperborea setting and providing classic, memorable adventure material. These adventures are designed for the AS&SH™ game, but they are suitable for use with the traditional editions of the world's most popular RPG, as well as its modern simulacra, such as OSRIC™ and Swords & Wizardry™.

Physically, each module will be saddle-stitched, range from approximately 44 to 56 pages, and measure 8.5 x 11 inches. Each will feature full-colour, card stock covers, and sharp, black & white interiours.

Re: HYPERBOREA ADVENTURE THREE-PACK KICKSTARTER IS NOW LIVE!

I'm in! Also, Jeff, I was wondering - how much of the writing, editing, art and layout is finished at this point?

Edit: He said all the writing, editing and art has been completed - so only layout and printing remains. Nice.

I have thrown precious sequins your way Jeff: while I don't require a Perciplex as one of the treasures, surely there's a Pectoral Skybreak Spatterlight in one of the modules?

Why, Rhialto, for twenty terces I phrase the answer in clear and actionable language; for ten I use the language of cant, which occasionally admits of ambiguity; for five, I speak a parable which you must interpret as you will; and for one terce, I babble in an unknown tongue.

Broke through the $10k mark ($10,461; 75%) in the first 26 hours. Not bad! Surely a nice testament to the appeal of what you guys have created.

Splendid!
'I am more inclined to punish Hurtiancz for his crassness,' said Ildefonse. 'But now he simulates a swinish stupidity to escape my anger.'
'Absolute falsity!' roared Hurtiancz. 'I simulate nothing!'
Ildefonse shrugged. 'For all his deficiencies as polemicist and magician, Hurtiancz at least is candid.'
