Re: HYPERBOREA: Beasts and Cannibals

Yes, we are live! I've been sending batches all morning, but now DriveThru keeps crashing on me just as I go to send the final batch out -- to the people who wrote, edited, and illustrated these modules!

I'll have a more formal Kickstarter Update shortly...

Re: HYPERBOREA: Beasts and Cannibals

I wasn't expecting my pdfs this early, this is a pleasant surprise! Reading my copies now. 

I'd love to see more North Wind adventures inspired by the fiction of C.A.S., H.P.L., and R.E.H.

Re: HYPERBOREA: Beasts and Cannibals

Well these are fantastic looking.  I put my AS&SH campaign on hold a couple months ago, but this is gonna require getting the band back together.  We left off with the party trying to get to Yithorium, but I think they're gonna find things in Xambaala pretty intriguing.

AARRG! Tortured again! Swore from the very beginning never to read the pdfs first....but it's getting harder with every module release!

Yeah, you can say there are a few things going on there... ;)

Re: HYPERBOREA: Beasts and Cannibals

Ghul, the pdf for Xambaala has some mistakes with the bookmarks. There is no bookmark for Part IV, the levels of the Warlord's Palace are under the Anthropophagi Camp in Part III, and the appendices and OGL are under Part III as well.

Aside from that, this was a fun read, great art and maps, and I'm really looking forward to running it soon.

Re: HYPERBOREA: Beasts and Cannibals

Hi under_score,

I'm not seeing any of that from this end. What PDF reader do you use?

Cheers,
Jeff T.

I tried it with both Adobe Acrobat and Sumatra and it's the same in both. I can shoot you a screenshot of what I'm seeing if it helps

I made the same vow and have managed to keep it so far. We'll see how it goes this time...

I just checked my pdf (in Adobe Reader) and I see the same issue that under_score reports.

Re: HYPERBOREA: Beasts and Cannibals

Hey, folks... your friendly neighbourhood editor here. I can confirm that there seem to be issues with the bookmarking in both modules downloaded from DriveThru/RPGNow. I tested every bookmark in both modules over the weekend, before Jeff uploaded them, and they worked fine. They must have been corrupted in the upload/download process with DriveThru/RPGNow. Jeff will investigate and try re-uploading the files tomorrow. Please stand by.

This is something that is happening on the DriveThru / RPG Now side of things. My local files are perfect. When I upload them to DriveThru / RPGNow, the bookmarks appear to corrupt. I have not heard back from them. The ball is in their court at this point.

Re: HYPERBOREA: Beasts and Cannibals

I just heard back that they are on the case. Apparently, they utilize their own PDF flattening process that can sometimes mess with PDFs that bookmark objects. In our case, most of our bookmarks point to a line of text, but in some instances the bookmarks point to an object (a map, for instance). Apparently this can be a source of trouble.  Hopefully we'll have it resolved today, and I do apologize for any inconveniences that this has caused.
