Second Edition AS&SH Hardbacks Have Arrived!

Fellows, it is with great pleasure that I announce the arrival of the hardbacks. Now I must beg your patience as we begin the process of fulfillment. Also, I'm afraid it's too late for me to add gnomes to the game. Maybe in Third Edition. :|

Jeff - it's gorgeous!

...and gnomes would've really upset game balance.

Beautiful!

So, when are you going to launch the Kickstarter for 3rd Edition?
/wink/

Re: Second Edition AS&SH Hardbacks Have Arrived!

What does it say when that binding is so sexy you can't focus on the fantastic art?

Re: Second Edition AS&SH Hardbacks Have Arrived!

Wow. Just, wow. @.@
And you were right; the semi-transparent text boxes in the class descriptions didn't make the text hard to read!

In 5 weeks. It has already rendered 2nd Edition obsolete. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/lol.png

Jeff - staring at these 2E hardback images has me entranced.  I now must do my best to grab one of the precious few overstock blue foiled versions.  Will those appear on DriveThruRPG sometime after the standard hardbacks?

No rush; happy to wear out the PDF for years to come if I must.

We use DriveThru / RPGNow only for PDFs. They could never achieve the sort of quality you are seeing in the above pictures; nor could they include a 32 x 40-inch map! When the dust settles, there may be some blue foil editions for sale on our web site, www.hyperborea.tv. Thank you for your interest!

Re: Second Edition AS&SH Hardbacks Have Arrived!

Excellent!  I'd prefer you get all my cash in any case.

Re: Second Edition AS&SH Hardbacks Have Arrived!

The quality looks unsurpassed, not that I am surprised by that, cannot wait to hold a copy... of course, I will need one of those Val Semeiks tome stands due to its enormity!

The artwork really pops, so proud of this thing I cannot express!
