@Barnett1967- Thanks for the remarks. Glad you liked this one. There are a few more that I am quite proud of that Jeff has yet to release that I think everyone will like. Thanks again.

Jeff-

Are there any differences between the 2e version of the Purloiner, Huntsman, and Cryomancer, and the versions found in AFS?

Yes—they've been edited. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/wink.png


The huntsman in particular will have undergone significant revision when published in Second Edition. Consider if you will the original drafts of the cavalier and barbarian in DRAGON® compared with the final published versions in Unearthed Arcana.

Is it weird that I'm actually more interested in 2E because of the new layout and another editing process than the new content itself? :D

Re: Astonishing Swordsmen & Sorcerers of Hyperborea 2nd Edition

Ghul - I note from your latest Kickstarter post that one can order an additional map. 

​However, having looked at the Kickstarter page and worked my way through the 'manage your bid' thing, I can't see where these maps are listed or how to include further add-ons.

​Maybe I'm being a bit dull and these things should be obvious, but could you give a pointer as to how one goes about including add-ons to an existing bid.  Thanks!

I think you're having the problem Jeff discussed in this update:

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1806106772/astonishing-swordsmen-and-sorcerers-of-hyperborea-0/posts/1720524

It's not your fault - just pointlessly idiotic web design on the part of Kickstarter.

As for including add-ons, just raise your bid.  Jeff will sort out what you want when the campaign ends. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/smile.png

4 Days, 4 Daemons! Russ Nicholson Art!

That is the title of our newest Kickstarter update!

Check out the amazing art by the man best known for illustrating the Fiend Folio and Fighting Fantasy!

As we work our way closer to the final hours of the AS&SH 2E Kickstarter campaign, I would like to thank you for your generosity and support. It's very gratifying to know that traditional tabletop gaming with a strong sword-and-sorcery vibe is something that resonates with so many gamers.

We are approaching our final stretch goal--a second satin bookmark in the AS&SH 2E hardback.

We are nearly 400% funded! Pledge with confidence!

Re: Astonishing Swordsmen & Sorcerers of Hyperborea 2nd Edition

Hello,

We've now gone under 40 hours remaining for the AS&SH 2E Kickstarter campaign, and we are over 400% funded!  In today's update, I address those fine gamers who maybe have been watching from afar, but are on the fence on whether to pledge their support or not.

Many thanks, fellows!
