Razor Coast Releases for Swords & Wizardry!



Have you followed the history of the Razor Coast getting published? No? Google it ;)

In all seriousness, if Frog God hadn't picked up the ball and run with it, this probably never would have happened and folks that had preordered years ago would still be SOL.

Now, the Razor Coast was written for Pathfinder and we certainly wouldn't have a Swords & Wizardry version if it wasn't for the Frogs. Their habit of producing a Pathfinder and Swords & Wizardry version of pretty much all that they do is pretty damn awesome.

I didn't support the Kickstarter, as the added third party goodies were almost universally for Pathfinder, so the S&W version wasn't as good a deal. Sad but true. The PDFs, however, just released over at RPGNow last night.

Razor Coast is a 400+ page swashbuckling campaign for Swords and Wizardry.

Heart of the Razor adds four more adventures and the Freebooter's Guide adds races, spells, a gazetteer and more.

I just downloaded Heart of the Razor and the Freebooter's Guide. I'll try to say more about them after I give them a closer look but a quick glance at the Freebooter's Guide gives me the impression of a lot of campaign goodness for 10 bucks.

  1. It was Nick Logues Friend Louis Agresta who originally picked nup the pieces. He offered refunds for the original backers and brokered the deal with the Frogs. He also did most of the development of RC.

    One Advice: The Core Book of Razor Coast is not only gorgeous to behold but also a stellar sandbox-adventure path mashup.
    Look at that review, it gets the product better than I could: http://paizo.com/products/btpy8yfs?Razor-Coast

  3. Erik, I'm curious to read your take on the S&W RC main book itself. There's a steep buy-in for the hardback version -- S&W version is 100 pgs shorter than the pathfinder version (per rpgnow) but the same price.

    1. Dave, for the moment I'm looking at the two releases I have reviewer comps for. I don't have a comp for the main book, so these are going to have to really sell me on the setting for me to step up for at least 40 bucks...

      Time. Need more time ;)
