Announcement: Into the Borderlands Now Available for Pre-Order! (Goodman Games)


Original post at Goodman Games
You’ve been asking about it. You’ve been reading about it. You’ve heard a lot about it.
And now you can pre-order it. 
Original Adventures Reincarnated: Into the Borderlands is now available for pre-order! This 384-page hardcover reprints the classic Dungeons and Dragons modules B1: In Search of the Unknown and B2: The Keep on the Borderlands, in both their original format and updated for Fifth Edition Dungeons and Dragons. And there is even a full-color 16-page cover gallery insert! 
The expected release date for Into the Borderlands is May, but we are hoping (cross your fingers!) to have some early-release copies available at Gary Con in March! 
Inside this book you will find high-quality scans from multiple printings of the original first edition adventure modules, plus commentary by such gaming luminaries as Luke Gygax and Mike Mearls. Full fifth edition conversions of both adventures are included, as well as brand new additional adventure locations to further expand and develop the Borderlands. This is a fully playable mini-campaign to start off your new fifth edition adventures, with a distinct old-school vibe.
$49.99. I think I need this.

  1. I was excited about it. Now I see it's not a module, it's a coffee table book and I find my excitement has waned considerably. On the fence...

  2. How on earth do they expand two modules of about 60 pages of total content into 384 pages? I'd need a lot more info on what's being added before buying.

  3. The FAQ gives more info on what's on the other 300+ pages.

    I definitely want to read through this. My only critique is that I'd love to have seen some DCC RPG elements (but I assume it's easy to convert). And, that I could care less to see any Mike Mearls commentary.

  4. I'm psyched, because all that extra content is exactly what I'm interested in reading. The actual 5e conversions are very secondary. I'll wait until it's out though, and pass on the pre-order cash grab.

  5. I like to just see a small module of the 5th ver.

  7. One for the collectors and nostalgists rather than for use at the game table.A shame.
