Wayward Kickstarters - Myth & Magic Player's Guide - Available on Lulu - $9.99


Truth to tell, the whole Myth & Magic Player's Guide Kickstarter experience has soured me on what is otherwise a damn good presentation of 2e. I really expected anthrax or urine to accompany my copy of the Player's Guide, and I know I only got my copy because Tom hoped it would shut me up.

I'll admit I stopped reading the comments at the Kickstarter page with any regularity after July or so, as it was obvious that Tom had withdrawn himself to avoid dealing with his irate supporters.

  4. Not even worth a print copy at this point. Second edition deserves better representation. This is not that game.

  6. Ahhh Tom Ryan, my favorite shyster lawyer! I'm glad that this is available in such a way that he won't profit from it.
    If only his GMG would ever get posted in such a way...
