Wow, I look good in this Rats in the Walls shirt!

Thanks again for the great Kickstarter, Jeff!

My books were waiting for me when arrived home from a trip this weekend.

They made a splash at Eli's AS&SH game last night - clearly the difference between surviving and my other characters that have died at Eli's hands.  There's power in the player folio!  Put it between yourself and the DM to shield their malevolent intent.

Well Jeff, that backfired on us... I thought we built in the nerf'd powers into the players folio...

Mine arrived sunday! great packaging as per usual. Thanks again Jeff for the stuff. My mother sad she is putting her taxes in the player's folio.... hopefully her taxes are not nerf'd!

D'oh! Del's #1 fan: Mom! :-)

Re: HYPERBOREA: Players' Manual, Referee's Screen, and more!

It took all of an hour for one of my players (a young-un) to spill his water on one of the PM's...fortunately it was mere water, and what's a game without battle-worn manuals? It was a complete coincidence that his character ending up dying later that night, truly.https://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/devious.png

I brought two books to my regular Tuesday night group, just so we would have a few extra copies on the table for anyone who wanted a quick reference, or for anyone who didn't have a book of their own. Within 30 minutes, one of my players spilled his beer on both copies. It's inevitable. These guys can't have nice things.

And yet, we keep trying: all had a good time, which is all I ask.

And sweat at the daily round,
While in my soul forever
The drums of Pictdom sound?”

Just like the MAP –– you have to have CANVAS players manuals!
