Kickstarter - Hyperborea Adventure Three-Pack in Hand
There is something about in print gaming products. I love PDFs for the portability and the "read on my phone while in some random bathroom" readability but the collector in me adores print. Well, maybe "adore" is the wrong word, especially when dealing with the manliness of the Hyperborea adventures three pack, but screw it, it fits.
The adventures range from 48 to 56 pages in length and the inside covers are used for maps. Hard to get much more old school than that.
As you can see, even Ashley was excited by the latest additions to the gaming collection. She knows how to roll dice, if only she knew how to read them. Ah well.
Oh, and there are three bookmarks that aren't pictured. I guess I'll need to read more books ;)
I haven't had the chance to digest any of these properly, but they are well laid out and the art is damn good. I'm disappointed in myself for not opting to support the Kickstarter at a level that included a piece of original art. I think my first week of retirement next year will be 12 hours a day of reading gaming material. These three will be on the top of that list if I don't get to them sooner.
Estimated delivery was September and they arrived mid October. That's on time in my book :)
