Re: HYPERBOREA ADVENTURE THREE-PACK KICKSTARTER IS NOW LIVE!

Man, I hate busy weeks...finally got to look at these, even though I got them back on Tuesday...sooo awesome,  both in feel and content, and had a great coke randomly appear out of my fridge when I was looking at these for the first time.  So cheers to all of you adventurers out there  

After getting through the first module, which again was very exciting, I flipped to the back cover and noticed the numbering, which I forgot was even being done for some reason, and saw that I got #10!!!  Pretty stoked I must admit.   But now that I saw that, I did not want to open the others and remembered we were also supposed to get PDF codes I thought.  I was looking through my email and couldn't find any email regarding the issuance of these toward my personal account.  I saw the kickstarter notice that they should have been sent out a long while ago.  Did anyone else not get their download codes?  Or could I request through here to have some sent my way?  Am I mistaken and that I might not have got the PDFs also with my pledge level?  Just checking in on this particular item.  Thanks in advance!  My group is getting super excited to play through these!

Great pic, WebwayDrifter. Check your junk/spam folder for an email from RPGNow/Drivethru. The generated codes came through their service, which sometimes gets identified as junk mail. Let me know if you don't have them, and I'll take care of it. Cheers! --Jeff T.

I got mine and wow, there are so many horror stories about Kickstarters for RPGs but boy Mr. Talanian really delivered. This was my first rpg related KS and I'm very glad I backed it. Super high quality with the perfect heavy stock for the covers. The cover art makes the books seem much larger than adventures of the same size to me. Again much thanks for these awesome adventures to all involved, the writers and artists!

Thank you! I'm delighted to hear how happy you are with the modules, SGM. It's these kinds of messages that keep me going! I truly appreciate it. More to come!

Re: HYPERBOREA ADVENTURE THREE-PACK KICKSTARTER IS NOW LIVE!

I received mine this weekend.  These are quite simply some of the best products to come out of the OSR in terms of presentation.  Ghost Ship and Forgotten Fane are also some of the best-written (modesty forbids me to comment on Beneath the Comet...) http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/wink.png

Arrived on the left coast today. Now to make painful unshrinking choices and dig in.Very nice looking covers and packaging job.

Glad to hear folks are receiving them safe and sound. Still have over 130 packages to mail. Some days I knock off 15, other days I knock off 10, and then there are days that I get 0 done. C'est la vie!

Got mine yesterday, and they are amazing.  Incredible quality.

Ghul-- exactly what kind of paper is that?  I'd like to buy by the reem if possible.

Just received mine, safe and sound...I'm assuming my enjoyment of Hadon of Ancient Opar will treble now that I'm using my AS&SH "Ghostship" bookmark.

Possibly the coolest and craziest thing that's ever happened in all the times I've run that adventure! Well, besides the first time I ran it with my home group and TPKd them before they even made it to the main part of the adventure!

I have Hadon of Ancient Opar on my bedside stand with the "Fane" bookmark in mine.....very strange.

Humility aside you can easily include "Beneath the Comet" with the other two in terms of quality.

Re: HYPERBOREA ADVENTURE THREE-PACK KICKSTARTER IS NOW LIVE!

Got mine yesterday, too! My group is almost halfway through Ghost Ship already, so that PDF has been getting plenty of use, but it's great to have the physical modules. I love reading modules. I read the other two last night while the baseball was on. Great work, you guys. Really stellar.

The corners of all three of mine got kind of banged up in the shipping, curse the postal gods. But as we always say around the table, magic items are for using. And these will get used! Can't wait until the PCs are up to tackling the other two adventures. If only they would stop dying . . .

Re: HYPERBOREA ADVENTURE THREE-PACK KICKSTARTER IS NOW LIVE!

Out of curiosity, are the bookmarks inside the shrinkwrapped modules?

That's right, Steve.

Wow, that's the first I've heard of that! Those boxes are pretty sturdy, so I'm surprised. Maybe they found out you're a Yankees fan?
