That's a lot of failed thieves!

That's a gorgeous pic and I want to learn the story behind it.

*Ulp* I'm a long way from Faerun. I should have thought twice about stepping through that portal in Waterdeep. The glowing red sun enticed me... http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/smile.png

Things are happening fast.  It's 12.30pm (UK time) and already 78% backed (assuming my interpretation of the Kickstarter widget is correct).  That's five hours since I was last on which was before the project went live.  Amazing!

Re: Astonishing Swordsmen & Sorcerers of Hyperborea 2nd Edition

Damn! $170 to go, and I just got to work! Freaking fantastic. This really ups the laying-eggs-in-characters-brains ante for all of us!

Re: Astonishing Swordsmen & Sorcerers of Hyperborea 2nd Edition

I think Jeff broke Kickstarter...I keep getting a "Resolving host..." spinning wheel of frustration. But at last count: 91 backers, $169 to go.http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/happy.png

It made it! Holy crap, that has to be a (disc-shaped, suspended in the Black Gulf, lost in the nighted gulfs of time) land speed record!

Question, though: for add-ons: Add on the $ now or during the pledge-manager phase?
