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

This is very exciting! I expected to make the goal, but not this early. It's very encouraging, and I truly appreciate all the support and encouragement.

The campaign now has more backers, as well as a larger total, than the Kickstarter for the boxed set had!  A testimony to Jeff's deserved reputation for quality and integrity. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/smile.png

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

Awesome! Glad it made the pledge goal. This Friday I will be throwing in my money once I get a couple more coppers in my pouch. Art looks great. Wish I could throw down for a print.

Plus, I think adventures are a product that probably tends to interest mainly referees and collectors, whereas the boxed set interested players as well. So, I suspect the hardback second print could generate an even stronger response. We'll see!

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

Good point!  The hardcover campaign should be even more popular.

I know I want one. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/love.png

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

I think there is in general a strong and growing demand for quality old school rpg products with a strong sense of character and good artistic direction. Coupled with the fact that much of the OSR seems to be winding down its publication rate if anything i suspect that future projects will be even more successful.

It's been almost 2 years since I backed my last kickstarter.

No doubt, BA23 is spot on. North Wind products have made an impression on followers of the OSR, deservedly so. Few can match the production quality, artistic value and creativity. I wasn't around for the original boxed set KS, so I'm very excited to see how the hardcover does!

I hadn't actually watched the video until last night. I assured Ms. Haversack that Jeff's accent is "Hyperborean."

Accent!?! What are you talking about? He doesn't have an accent!http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/tongue.png

Like this?

“I dun’t keer what folks think—ef Lavinny’s boy looked like his pa, he wouldn’t look like nothin’ ye expeck. Ye needn’t think the only folks is the folks hereabaouts. Lavinny’s read some, an’ has seed some things the most o’ ye only tell abaout.

You know, that really doesn't sound that different from "backwoods West Virginia elder gods cultist"*.  Maybe Lovecraft was onto something when he suggested a widespread conspiracy! http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/shocked.png


* - As I am painfully aware, assuming the cast of Buckwild counts as "elder god cultists"**.

** - They totally do.

Yeah, yet another "book" with re-treaded rangers, monks, and thief-acrbats, for <insert OSR system> has gotten plain old boring.

Ha! Yeah, some of Lovecraft's dialogue could be painful to read.

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

My favorite part is that Wizard Whateley describes Yog Sothoth as "as good a husband as you can find this side of Aylesbury".  It's the last four words that really sell it.  Too funny! http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/smile.png
