The Future of Amazing Adventures

Post by Jason Vey »

Because the Trolls are always looking ahead, I had a great virtual meeting with Steve yesterday during which we talked about some upcoming work for me, including the forthcoming Abyss Walker campaign setting for C&C, Brimstone and the Borderhounds (which is in editing), a short story for the Storyteller's Dictionary anthology (which will feature the Brotherhood of William St. John from Amazing Adventures), and future AA materials.

Forthcoming for AA (with no set date yet--these are just in the early stages of planning, so don't start calling them "vaporware" just yet!)

* Basic / Quick Start Rules module - akin to the Shadows of the Green Sky C&C pack.

* Two new standalone adventure modules - these and the above are first on the plate.

* The First Genre Book expansion for AA, tentatively titled Swashbuckling Stories.

So lest you think the recent re-release was a "one and done," oh, no, folks...I have plans. I have big plans!

Good!

My KS package arrived today, and I am really liking what I am seeing, so want to see more.
Since its 20,000 I suggest "Captain Nemo" as his title. Beyond the obvious connection, he is one who sails on his own terms and ignores those he doesn't agree with...confident in his journey and goals.

AA is looking really good, Tree. No doubt.

Glad to hear that there is some cool stuff on the horizon. I should have backed the kickstart (wish I had done so) but there were too many other drains on my finances at the time. My loss. :oops:

AA is a great game. I played a lot of it a while back, then it got lost on my bookshelf when I got caught up in the whole 5E D&D thing.

I did recently find copies of the new Companion and monster book at a local game store, which got me inspired to track down other stuff. (My AA collection is from the original pre-order or kickstart or whatever it was back then. I have several player's guides, a paperback rulebook, and so on.) Reading the companion reminded me how much I like the C&C/AA rules sets more than 5E and got me fired up enough to order a copy of the hardback rulebook, GM screen, and the two modules that are out already. Basically, I think I ordered a copy of whatever had been released since my last go-around with the game and my collection is (hopefully) pretty much complete.

Can't wait to go back into the world of Amazing Adventures! 8-)

A bit odd quoting myself, but...

An awesome game store in Mount Prospect IL has Amazing Adventures stuff. There I realized that there are two versions of the Red God module -- one with the full three-part adventure and one with only the first part in it.

I now own both... :|
