Kickstarter - The Mystery at Port Greely (OSR)

What can I say about The Mystery at Port Greely? It's written by +Jeff Talanian and inspired by H.P. Lovecraft. If that isn't an awesome combination of OSR goodness, I don't know what is.

See the cover above? The stuff nightmares are made of. Good nightmares I hope, but nightmares none the less.

Did I mention the Kickstarter funded in a day?

That 20 bucks gets you a signed and numbered copy as well as a PDF version?

That higher levels allow you to snag original art?

For now I'm in for 20, which is a steal...
The award-nominated role-playing game, Astonishing Swordsmen & Sorcerers of Hyperborea™ is back with a brand new, exciting adventure, written by the game's creator, Jeffrey Talanian. 
This sword-and-sorcery adventure module is site-based, fleshing out a small portion of the Hyperborea setting and providing classic, memorable adventure material. 
The Mystery at Port Greely is designed for the AS&SH™ game, but it is suitable for use with the traditional editions of the world's most popular RPG, as well as its modern simulacra, such as OSRIC™ and Swords & Wizardry™. 
Physically, this module will be saddle-stitched, ranging from approximately 32 to 40 pages, and measuring 8.5 x 11 inches. It will feature a full-colour, card stock cover, and sharp, black & white interiours on durable paper.


  1. Me too, I'm in. Love AS&SH now that I finally got my hands on a copy, plus the other three modules are great, too.

  2. Wow! My art at Tenkars Tavern...Does that mean I can finally tell my mom I made it? Thanks for the boost Eric! I've read the adventure and it is packed with great stuff! Thanks for all the support

    1. Del, when you have a break in your schedule drop me a message and let me know your rates for a banner or two (this blog and Tenkar's Taproom - a beer blog that is re-kicking off next month)

  3. Just want to say, I played one of the playtests that Jeff ran at NorTex back in 2013 (that's how long this adventure's been percolating - it isn't something that was dashed off in a vacuum), and it is a great adventure. And all of Jeff's adventure's production quality is absolutely top notch.

  4. This looks very tempting, even if it just for the t-shirt:-)
    Unfortunately, pledging for print products from Europe is getting pretty prohibitive, especially with projects like this from small publishers that don't have some kind of 'EU friendly' deal.

  5. Erik, I appreciate the kind words and the plug I hope you enjoy the adventure as much as I enjoyed developing it!

    Jeff T.
