We switched to a mashup of Astonishing Swordsman & Sorcerors of Hyperborea and Labyrinth Lord, since they've finally come out with a combined book for that.
That sounds kinda awesome. Where is it?

Re: Aergraith's Sunday C&C: "Heroes and Scoundrels of Xylh"

Details are on Discord. It's Swords and Wizardry, around 5th level to start, in the Lost Lands.
As for Penny's game, I'm not sure when she'll have another installment ready.

Re: Deluxe Tunnels & Trolls Bundle of Holding

It's probably a great game for chat because of the roll-a-million-dice-and-compare combat. Spells and missiles are counted separately IIRC, and now there is "spite damage" so you need to see how each die landed, but definitely faster than the D&D pattycake.

Adventurer's Backpack

I got my print books today for Adventurer's Backpack. The B&W flipbook (PHB/ABP) is great. I always love the flipbooks because they are in B&W.

Well, for $100, you are getting digest versions of seven of the normal-sized books; that isn't a bad deal. I know less about their OD&D-like books.

Re: Kickstarter - Digest, etc.

It's kind of a neat idea. I am not sure my eyes could take it, and I have multiples of many of the books by now. If my eyes were better and I didn't own anything yet I'd surely consider it. I do like the black and white; if it's crisp that's a selling point. What I'd really like is a hardcover case-...

Re: What gaming stuff are you reading?

The system itself ... is different. If I played it or ran it, it would take some getting used to. The player does ALL of the rolling of dice. It is all roll against the challenge set by the DM. Everything, both attack (roll & beat the opponent's defense rating) and defense (roll and get above the o...

I think the problem is trickier than that. I am pretty sure Sieg is now DMMike, and probably because of some kind of login problem that made him make a new account. Maybe a moderator could give him access to the old account to change it. DMMike/Sieg uses a screen reader, so I wonder if that played i...
