Dying Earth KS

Many of you may already know about this & I certainly don't want to distract you from the KS here, but FYI Goodman Games' KS for The Dying Earth boxed set & modules is also currently running and may be of interest to folks here.  It's written for DCC, but conversions to Hyperborea aren't that hard.  From their preview videos, it's looking pretty cool.  I've backed it and the KS here so I'm putting my money where my mouth is.  They also recently released an Empire of the East supplement, which ties into Fred Saberhagen's trilogy.  So there's lots of Appendix N gaming goodness to be had out there these days.

Re: Dying Earth KS

Thanks, I saw it and checked it out: much as I love Vance and his logodexterity, I don't think I could replicate it at a table, on the fly...as usual for KS like this, I'll wait in the wings, and act with all appropriate alacrity. https://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/happy.png

Re: Dying Earth KS

Yeah, I'm going a bit crazy with Kickstarters lately.  The best thing about this one is that it's looking like we'll have our stuff in a few months.  The DCC one has a projected September 2022 delivery date.

Re: Dying Earth KS

Big Vance fan, so I pledged this one too. I don't have the DCC rules, but I imagine I can pillage some cool material for my Hyperborea games.

Re: Dying Earth KS

I'm back and forth on DCC.  It's got a cool vibe and I really like a few of their tweaks and incorporate them into my other OSR games.  But it can be a bit clunky at the table as there are tons of charts & tables that can slow things down.  On the bright side, you can buy the paperback version of their rules for around $20.  But, as I said, I think it's easy enough to pillage from there and port it to Hyperborea.
