Post Amazing Adventures Support
Hey, everyone, I just wanted to touch base with everyone to give you some preliminary thoughts on what we're going to be doing to support AA.

Amazing Adventures will be aggressively supported. Steve, Davis, and I had some great discussions at Gen Con about directions that we want to go with the game. I don't want to give any specific details right now, because I don't want to reveal something planned, have it not come to fruition, and be accused of creating vaporware.

Suffice it to say, however, that there is one sourcebook concretely planned already, and I have a few others nebulous in my brain that are taking shape. We are planning a series of adventure modules for the game, which will hopefully span the gamut of pulp styles from horror to sci-fi to action-adventure.

In addition, Steve has asked me to begin generating downloadable content for the game, which will consist of what I'm calling "mini modules;" these will encompass encounter areas, short adventures, and even some rules clarifications, expansions, and new rules. I'm not sure what he plans for the pricing structure for these as yet but I can't imagine they'll be that expensive.

I will also be making a concerted effort to increase my face time here at the forums so I can be present to answer questions, address criticism, etc. I've been kind of on a hiatus from message forums in general over the past couple years, but with the advent of this game, I need to make a return.

I think, though I am not certain of this, that Steve wants to set up an AA section of the TLG website where all of the content and product will be collected in one place. I generally create "support" sites for games with which I'm involved, so I'll probably have something like that available relatively soon (as soon as I get a chance to breathe from my forthcoming day job change).

I am currently correcting errata for the first print--isn't there always errata? So far nothing major; a few copy-editing fixes but nothing that'll make the game problematic to use. Once I finish going through it I'll post a thread containing all errata, and try to get a document to Pete to format and put up for download. Till then, if anyone finds any, by all means keep track of it, but I'd ask that you wait for the thread to go up before you post anything, so we don't end up doubling-up on Errata.

Here's to hoping Amazing Adventures becomes almost as popular as C&C!

Thanks for the update Jason. Cant wait to see what you come up with for mini modules. Also a source book would be great.

Nice to get some hints of support. I can't wait for this to arrive in the mail. I saw copies at GenCon but didn't want to spoil the fun of the first-read. Having some small-module style support for AA will be a definite bonus.

Dammit, Marv, I wish I'd known you were there! I was hanging out at the TLG booth on and off all weekend! Would've been nice to meet up face to face!

Well I'm planning to run a demo or two at my FLGS sometime next month, so I'll do a little bit for the cause.

Same here. I stopped by briefly when I got to the con around 10 AM on Thursday to briefly check in and say "howdy" to Steve, then wandered by again around 1 PM to buy a new PH and droll over (but not touch) Amazing Adventures and spent about a half hour chatting with Steve before trekking back to Chicago. We probably were standing feet from each other at some point, each having no idea who the other was. :(

I gave Steve hell about wearing but not selling those cool TLG t-shirts with the spiffy new logo. Maybe by next year I'll have one of those and will look more obvious. Or, we'll try to set up a meeting time in advance.
