General Discussion » How many hours do you game a week? » 2/04/2022 3:56 pm

3 to 4 on average. sometimes it scales to 6-8 in a week and at maximum i would say 9-12.

General Discussion » Your top/fave Hyperborea modules » 1/28/2022 7:26 pm

i have GMed the 1/3 of the "Rats in the Walls and other Perils" and then it "derailed" to my players exploring the River Oceanus in a Major Campaign and now we are gonna start "Anthropophagi of Xambala" on my channel.
i have all adventures that North Wind has on DriveThruRPG but i had the most fun playing "Rats in the Walls", even though it was only 1/3.  "Anthropophagi of Xambala" as i read it i find it an even better. so i'm going with these two.

i like the boldness of this project.

 

Hyperborea » Banks, bankers, and banking » 11/01/2021 11:22 am

i also have a form of bank in Khromarium. Is mostly the local treasury that have a building to store for short term and a huge treasured ship in the middle of the harbor for long term storage. lots of treasure guards and cooperation with the local city guard.

it works as simple as possible (i don't try to have real economy).

in the main Bank Building they store it (Gold, Gems, Artifacts etc) and when you want to access it or take something, they take a small fee (1%) each time you want to move it or take something from it, so a 1000GP withdrawal could give the Bank a 10GP fee but the fee is 5% from the Treasure Ship and then the also have a 1% tax once per year to guard it so for 1000GP for ten years would be 100GP.

the more you have and the more you store the more the bank takes from you.

Literary Inspirations » Ranking Appendix N Authors » 9/30/2021 6:32 pm

i have read mostly HP Lovecraft, RE Howard and i'm currently reading CA Smith and i agree with those 3.

i haven't managed to read Tolkien. It's too slow pacing for me, but he is a great influence to many writers.

Rules Discussion » What Is Star Metal? » 7/13/2021 10:08 am

By Crom!!!

by Starmetal was Conan's Sword in the 90's animation. It "killed" Snake-Men and send them on an other plane.

This game has so many sword and sorcery references and i'm still finding them 4 years later.

Hi demetrisathanasopoulos and welcome to the board. It is always a pleasure to meet another fan of my favorite fantasy setting. I am excited about 3E as well and my players have been eager to get back to Hyperborea.

We've been playing Jeffrey McKinney's weird fantasy Carcosa setting in the meantime using the B/X rules but I my players' hearts belong in Hyperborea. They've told me as much. My plan is wrap up the current campaign and start a new one in Hyperborea once 3E drops.  

nice to meat you all

awesome, you do that. all rpgs are great but we are drown to some in a special way. Hypeborea is that for me.

my groug we will just upgrade the rules when the times comes. i might give them an XP bonus when we do.

One of my groups are in the Lemurian Remnant and pondered trying to destroying one of those obelisks.

Players have such silly ideas :-)

i have spread misinformation about them. that they are like the black towers of Khromarium.
they will lose their ship crew from madness and be stranded there.

well that is a good subject for an other thread. we have derailed a little. this thread is about the changes of 3e.
