Re: Introduction Thread

I suppose I should introduce myself as well! 
I'm Michael. We came across AS&SH at Gary Con V and I've been playing in ChrisJ's on and off again campaign since we discovered it. I straight up love the system. Well, mancrushing on it is more like it but I suppose I should really keep that to myself.. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/blooper.png

Anyways, some on this board should recognize me from playing with me at Gary Con over the years. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/happy.png

Welcome aboard, Michael! We have a pretty nice, relaxed group of folks here, so you should be right at home.

Re: Introduction Thread

Good Day,

I'm André. To be honest I forgot how ran into AS&SH but I've had my boxsed 1st edition copy for quite some time now and really love it. A bit sad that I missed out on the 2nd Ed. KS, but hey at least I can preorder it.

I,m in my early 40s and been gaming since grade 8 or 9, so like most people in my generation I cut my tooth on AD&D and Call of Cthulhu for which AS&SH is awesome to bring element of both together.

Now. Well I'm slowly completing my collection of magazines (gaving some issues with AFS Magazine as it is quite hard to find second hand) as well as getting the new 2nd edition material.

Welcome aboard, André! Hyperborea's popularity has been growing by leaps and bounds in the past year and the long-awaited 2E hardback arrives this summer, so you're coming into the community at a great time. Please let us know if there's anything we can do to help. This forum has a pretty good crew.

I'll keep this in mind. At the moment I'm slowly going around the forum, seeing what was posted and get a general feel of the place so to speak.

Aside from that it's really getting my library up to date with the new material (DrivethruRPG is my friend here) and getting my grubby little paw on the missing AFS magazines, but I doubt anyone here would want to part with their copies (understandably so too). But hey I might get lucky and should be more active in a bit.

Re: Introduction Thread

Hey, everyone. I've been lurking so long I forgot I had an account. My name is Tim and I'm from Rhode Island. I started gaming in '89 with Mentzer Basic and then moved on to 2E. After playing lots of different games and systems, my heart has settled on DCC and AS&SH which I run on alternate weeks. Now that I'm retired from the Army, I'm practicing my writing to hopefully publish some adventures of my own. I've had the pleasure of meeting some of you in person at various cons, and I'm glad that this forum is active. When I'm not playing AS&SH, I'm reading it or thinking about it.

DCC + AS&SH = Love

Re: Introduction Thread

Been lurkin', thought I'd join! http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/wink.png

Been playing D&D and similar, on and off, since '79. Love AS&SH for many reasons, but mainly because it reflects my tastes in reading - there's just something about the Olde Tales that resonates with me.

Welcome aboard!  I agree that the style and flavor of the game reflects the "old ways".
