Re: AFS 5 - a call out for writers/submissions

This looks really amazing. I'm hoping AFS 1-4 will be back in print soon as i'm looking to order all of them.

Thanks a lot amigos for the orders. AFS 5 pre -orders and current orders should start shipping within the next 7 days. I hope you enjoy the issue.

Issues 1-4 I hope to re-print and have back available this coming Fall. I am out of the covers for them and other things at the moment

Re: AFS 5 - a call out for writers/submissions

Scaly, if it is OK with you, I have two more subclasses in the works, and I would love to use AFS as the testing ground for them. One is a hunter class (fighter subclass) and the other is a seer (cleric subclass). Ideally, when we go to hardcover with AS&SH, I'd like to include these two classes as well as the cryromancer (magician subclass) and purloiner (thief subclass) as seen in previous AFS issues.

That would be awesome Jeff! I am already looking fwd to some other cool stuff for AFS 6 also that I think you will like from a British game author whose work I know you like. Hopefully he'll end up submitting something as discussed anyways. Sometimes you never knowhttp://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/nerdy.png


Also - AFS 5 is starting to ship starting tomorrow in batches. I am finally at the stage to be producing magazines this evening and addressing envelopes. I will keep shipping them in batches for the next week or so probably. I do have a large handful of stock if anyone new orders. The initial 20 signed/numbered ones have been gone for awhile. Thanks!

Re: AFS 5 - a call out for writers/submissions

More sub-classes are always welcome!
I talked with Scott briefly and am hoping to have an adventure ready for AFS #6.

Scott, I finally got a chance to read AFS 5 yesterday; it arrived while we were traveling. Nice work! The interview in particular is fantastic and fascinating, and the "D&D" adventure is really well made. Thanks for your work!

Thanks for the feedback Handy. Yeah I think there are some good bits in there, and that interview is enlightening. Ken St Andre seems to tell it like it is/was.
I might do another interview for AFS 6 as I think it breaks things up a little
