It's been a while since I posted about Tom and the Mythical Magical Mystery known as Myth & Magic. It's actually two Kickstarters - one for the Player's Guide (which i backed) and one for the Gamemaster's Guide (which i didn't back - so, no access to updates on that side.)
So, what's new? Here's part of the Feb 4th, 2015 update (hot on the heels of the April 2014 update.)
Now, I know the guys at NTRPG Con got one copy shipped to them just prior to the 2014 Con that June. The problem is they paid for four copies. As of June 2015 the rest of their copies still hadn't shown.
But hey, we know the copies exist, right? We have a picture of the book from March 4th, 2013 and I actually received my copy (after Tom posted my shipping info in the Kickstarter comments section - bad Tom, very bad) and it didn't come with the expected anthrax or cat piss. It's actually a nice looking book that's well laid and would probably be a fun clone to play if it didn't come with all of the attached drama.
Folks are still waiting on their copies over two years later.
Now, there's an interesting tidbit in the comments section of the Player's Guide referencing the latest update for the Gamemaster's Guide (where Tom couldn't find the time to make an update for nearly 15 months, but graced the backers with the latest news on July 16th of this year.)
BTW, you can grab a copy of the M&M Player's Guide for $9.99 in softcover at Lulu.
Jim Holloway, RIP - As many of you no doubt already know, the artist Jim Holloway passed away just over a week ago (on June 28th). Joseph Goodman has a brief essay on Holloway...
