Re: Astonishing Swordsmen & Sorcerers of Hyperborea 2nd Edition

This's awesome~

I backed only about an hour ago, and was pleasantly surprised everything was almost met! I do believe I'm going to have to contribute more for a 2nd book and that canvas map.

I'm also thankful the massive DDoS attack going on right now isn't currently affecting Kickstarter. Tsathoggua is watching out for you, Jeff. :-D

Been gunning for the Satin Bookmark - it's a small thing but very handy.  Glad to know that will be included. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/grin.png

As of right now, you have 326 backers.  You had 184 for the boxed set.  Impressive.

Truly a testament to the outstanding quality, from physical to lexical, and eliding into the mystical with the pitch-perfect art.

Fast-forward to Jeff lighting cigars with $100 bills outside the bar in the Grand Geneva, while we ogle the women that only Dan dares to speak with...http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/grin.png

Jeff "sounds like the kind of guy who deserves a... parade!
 
Yeah! I think this guy should be dressed in royal robes and be marched through the whole city on the King's horse and maybe wear one of His crowns....
 
And one of the most noble princes should lead this man through the streets, proclaiming, 'This is a really neat guy! The King really likes him! He's brave and has rugged good looks!'"

Ooh, almost to the Rogue's Gallery stretch goal. I do hope a certain Yoon'Deh-hunted sorcerer makes an overdue appearance. :-)

Ia, Xathoqqua! Ia, Ghul!
