Free Game of the Week - The World Between For Fictive Hack
Yeah, I know I just put up a Free Game of the Week the other day, but that one is long out of print and I assume that anyone that might have been interested in Powers & Perils grabbed it over the weekend.
This one is a keeper. This one will make you lose sleep, as you try to read it in as few sessions as possible. This one is a hack of a hack.
What do you get when you mix Old School Hack with the Gothic setting of The World Between? You get the blessings of Kirin Robinson (OSH) and Jack Shear (TWB) and make something that's even greater than it's already pretty damn good parts - The World Between for Fictive Hack by Andrew Shields.
It's a big book. I've got it on my Nexus for reading in bed and it's fighting my reread of AD&D for my spare time at the moment. I am very much enjoying my trip through it, to the point that I'm considering getting the softcover through Lulu.
I'll review it when I reach the end and I see if it accomplishes the melding of Old School Hack with the Gothic setting of The World Between as well as it expects to. I'll be very surprised if it doesn't. I'd read the originals, but then I'd never finish reading. ;)
