It's thread discussions like these that got me into this kickstarter in the first place. I've never played/run any FGG or Necromancer Games material ever. I've always homebrewed and my current setting is closer to Midgard by Kobold but my players were getting bored with both my style and the "dark fairy tale" kind of theme. They're all old school gamers so I decided to homebrew my first megadungeon in years.
In researching I inevitably came upon RA. I am also old in the gaming hobby and RA started pulling those primal chords in my memory. Unfortunately I didn't have the dough to grab a copy but I found myself continuing to search ALL of FGG's stuff with that same heady mix of nostalgia and inspiration.
Then fortunes for my family changed a little over a month ago. The first thing I did was start evaluating my initial frog purchase. At the same time I caught sight of this upcoming kickstarter. Hearing you guys in this thread and others going on about FGG, reading about their stuff for months and now having the opportunity to buy into the material myself; its really psyching me up for my games!
I don't know if I'll end up purchasing the whole lost lands setting, but I know I'm saving a little from each paycheck to pad my kickstarter contribution for that big huge book of old school madness called Rappan Athuk. That and Barakus alone will probably be enough for half a decade of gaming.
TL/DR. Bottom line: I think in me you've got a convert FGG. If I'm ever out west or at one of the bigger cons I'd love to meet some of the Frogs in person, if nothing else than just to shake one of your hands and thank you for re-igniting that fire that smolders in all gamers for epic adventure.
