Warsaw, Poland reports to Hyperborea! Hi everybody!

The books came last week, we had one awesome session so far and I've never played 1st edition of AS&SoH so I'm green when it comes to Hyberborea. But I've been DM-ing for 20 years now, mostly various edition of D&D. We've found 5th Edition of D&D to be badly designed and unrewarding and started looking for alternatives within OD&D and then I found AS&SoH. Since I've been great fan of Howard, Loveraft and Wagner, I loved the concept and we've ordered the books.

They came last week, we had our first game on Friday and it was an absolute blast. The setting, the classes, the touch - I think it is something I was waiting for the 20 years of gaming.

Welcome to the fora, this is a fine group of folks who have similar tastes and backgrounds. Your namesake can be found in Swampgate, too, in the starting adventure of the 2e big book.

Re: Introduction Thread

Howdy folks!

My name is Adam and I'm mostly known for running DCC RPG, the Metal Gods of Ur-Hadad zine for DCC and the Drink Spin Run podcast (kind of on hiatus right now, future uncertain), but I've been a fan of ASSH since I discovered it. I've run it a few times before for online and con groups, but I'm finally gearing up to run a campaign for some new-to-me players. A few months ago, I'd have skimmed the ASSH G+ group for inspiration for that campaign, but man do times change and I'm here instead and happy to be!

Welcome, this is a most congenial lot of AS&SH fans!

Re: Introduction Thread

Discovered this game after listening to some OSR podcasts and hearing it so highly recommended. This game is right down my ally. I love the art, the feel, the sword and sorcery vibe, the cthulhoid backdrop.

Looking forward to talking about this great game and maybe meeting some of y’all at the table, or when I quit making excuses for missing NTX RPG Con....

Re: Introduction Thread

Hey all, glad to be joining this group.  I'm a recurring character on the Tales from Hyperborea podcast. Just getting acquainted with all of the great content on here.  You have created such a rich world! The most exciting part for me though is how much more remains to be discovered!

Re: Introduction Thread

Welcome JustJames!! I just started that podcast today! Fun stuff. I'm only through the trailer and part of the first episode. But I dig the theme music, kind of Ladyhawk-ish with some Stranger Things in it. :D Dig the cool come of the DM (his voice reminds me of Seth Godin) and interesting voice of Hawker (?). I've only seen the podcast though, is there a website somewhere too?
Thanks, be well and be welcome!

Re: Introduction Thread

Hey all, Crawdad here.  After a long hiatus from RPGs, I wanted to do something different than LOTR inspired games and backed the Kickstarter for 2e.  I love this game!  I just need a group to play this with!  Anyhoo, wanted to drop in and say hi.
