I also have a strong urge to use ASSH for more high fantasy campaign settings and have been pondering which rule-set to pinch demi-humans from.

Labyrinth Lord and Swords and Wizardry both seem a bit too basic and lacking in flavour for my taste. The other system I considered is Adventures Dark & Deep.
I'm loath to introduce something that might upset the rules-balance of ASSH.

Any chance of high fantasy optional supplement Jeffrey? http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/wink.png

The Mighty Tome arrived on these shores last week and was hastened without delay to my abode. Truly, a gorgeous book. The lay-out and writing are top notch. I look forward to perusing it's pages.

Cheers Jeff!  #229

That's a lot of failed thieves!

Welcome to Hyperborea, heh!

*Ulp* I'm a long way from Faerun. I should have thought twice about stepping through that portal in Waterdeep. The glowing red sun enticed me... http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/smile.png

I feel like a street party is in order to celebrate the opening of the kickstarter. Sadly, I don't know anyone else on the road who will be willing to dress up as a barbarian or a cthuloid monster and join in with me. I'll just have to party on my own!

No, it's more of a mix and match approach in which every character class will now have two illustrations associated with it. Each will be presented by a different pairing; Bingham and Teigeler are being introduced, and we are retaining most of the Baggley class pictures.

So, for each of the character classes, you will see the following artist combinations:

- Baggley / Bingham
- Baggley / Teigeler
- Bingham / Teigeler

Three artists, three distinct styles. It's going to be excellent. 

Awesome. Thanks for the info! 21st is marked on my calendar now http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/smile.png

Welcome!

I wanted to ask if the black and white character class portraits by Baggley as featured on the 'about' page of this site are going to be present in the 2nd Edition? I'm very fond of them!

I think he intends to keep the vast majority of the art from the 1st Edition, including the class portraits, while adding a bunch from the new artists, including those who have contributed to the last four modules.
