As someone who has been to the singles bars on that side of Aylesbury, I just want to assure you that the wizard knew what he was talking about!

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

Fellows,

I am delighted to inform you that our Kickstarter campaign, the 
Hyperborea Adventure Three-Pack, was successfully funded inside of three days! We then went on to quickly achieve our first stretch goal: maps on the inside covers. Now, we are looking to meet the next stretch goal: additional art by illustrators Johnathan Bingham and Del Teigeler!

As I write this, 17 days remain for this Kickstarter. That includes our $50 "Best Buy"option, of which there are 56 left of 240. This reward includes all three adventures, Ghost Ship of the Desert DunesForgotten Fane of the Coiled Goddess, and Beneath the Comet, each signed and numbered, as well as complimentary PDFs of each adventure (will be sold separately after KS campaign is over).

Fellows, if you have pledged your support for this project, you have my gratitude and appreciation. This project could not happen without your support, so thank you. If you have not pledged your support, thank you for your consideration!

Lastly, I'd like to share with you a few fantastic photographs of some original art pieces that will be featured in the adventure modules of this project. Johnathan Bingham and Del Teigeler have done an amazing job capturing the spirit of the Hyperborea setting, and I can't say enough about their work ethic, professionalism, and talent. If you are interested in acquiring an original piece from one of these gentlemen, check out the upper tier reward levels for this project. Note that the cover art (by Charles Lang, Val Semeiks, and Peter Mullen) was also available, but these pieces are now sold out; likewise all the illustrations by AS&SH cartographer, Glynn Seal.

Cheers,
Jeff Talanian

Seems inevitable with 17 days left.

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

I wanted to take this opportunity to say my thanks as well. Jeff took a leap of faith as one of the first publishers to look at my artwork for a project this size. I really appreciate all the support and look forward to illustrating a few more for him in the coming days. Lets rally the men-at-arms and get us over the hump of $17,500. 

Thanks for all the kind words from everyone here on the forums as well, they are much appreciated and humbling.

Your art is worthy of the praise.  Thanks for taking the time to do the illustrations!  The one you did of the <redacted> crouched on the <redacted> was exactly what I had in mind. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/love.png

Welcome, John!

I've said it elsewhere, but you and Del have provided some fantastic pieces and I am anxiously awaiting the final products. They are going to be beautiful! Thanks for your work guys, job well done!

My favorite so far is the winged ape.

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

Thanks guys!  Daisey had a lot of fun coloring the cover piece as well.  I'm looking forward to doing more art as well.  AS&SoH is a great canvas to work on from an artistic perspective and I'm incredibly grateful to be a part of it and to all of you who are playing it and supporting it!

Cheers,

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

Jeff should kickstart a GM screen with a full art cover on it. That would be awesome! I also back the adventure three-pack, it look very promising.

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

I pledged at 150$ just now instead of 50$. I could not resist getting a piece of artwork!  It's being proccesed right now.

*edit* Now at 250$, I think I'm going crazy!

Thanks for your support! http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/happy.png

If I'd been single (or interested in quickly becoming single) I would have pledged a grand to get the sweet Peter Mullen cover art for Beneath the Comet.  But that dog wasn't going to hunt under the circumstances. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/grin.png

Glad to see that someone had the good taste to pick it up.  It deserves to be framed and hung on somebody's wall. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/smile.png
