Re: Introduction Thread

Hey. I'm Matteus. I have always loved Robert E. Howard's Conan stories. My love for Sword and Sorcery fiction eventually led me to D&D. I was introduced to the game during the 4e period with Pathfinder 1e. I played a lot of 5e until I found out about B/X and OSE (which I think are far superior). I had also developed an interest in the Greyhawk setting because it was the most "Sword and Sorcery" of the standard TSR settings. 

When I heard about Hyperborea, I thought it might be something I'd enjoy based on my fondness for Howard Sword and Sorcery fiction. I'm glad I did check it out. What I love about this setting, (beyond it's pulpy goodness), is that it is just detailed enough. There is lots of room to expand, explore, develop, and "make it your own". There isn't a "expanded universe" of lore you might run afoul of. There are whole sections of the map which are yours to do with as you will. That's awesome. 

I wish I'd heard about it during the kickstarter! But, at least I've put in the order for the 3e bundle. In the meantime, the PDFs will do! Great to be here.

Re: Introduction Thread

Welcome good Matteus!! You have hit on my favorite thing about the game. There is "just enough" leaving lots of room for the ref to fill in. Great to have ya!

And sweat at the daily round,
While in my soul forever
The drums of Pictdom sound?”

Re: Introduction Thread

Hello! Gort is the name of a DCC gong farmer character I played once. He got unceremoniously struck down by a cleaver-wielding hairy half-man.
I'm new to Hyperborea and am really looking forward to playing it!
