Haha fair enough, although nationalism and sports beats hooliganism and sports :p Round ball means Pom, I reckon, in Oz! Always hard work that, some of my ex-RAF buddies are over there flying various things, the banter rarely stops.
Anyway, back to topic. Keep up the good work, look forward to seeing it :D
The sad thing about the FMG lack of contact is that he is still backing many many KS himself, I noticed his name in the very recent Scarlet Heroes RPG KS Patrons list.
Ironically this KS was fulfilled within a couple of weeks of finishing ;)
He has pretty much backed every RPG Kickstarter that has come out that I know of if you check his KS name from the Throne of Knight page.
I'm no expert but:
Ah good point, however sometimes the pre-orders don't show PDF or bundle even if there will be eventually, like for Kobold's Dark Deeds in Freeport. As in maybe there will be a bundle coming?
However a fellow Kiwi who was in the KS raves about this game so I really want to check it out and this is the first place I've seen it listed, they don;t even have it on their website.
The lovely dry heat of the middle east, often around 50 degrees (in modern measures) was more than bearable, although I kept getting shot at by some of the inhabitants which wasn't as good! Whereas my sojourn to Shaw AFB Sth Carolina, with it's massive afternoon thunderstorms, was even less pleasant. At least I didn't get shot at, though we did get yelled at for walking to the pub (at the side of the road, no 'sidewalk' just grass) which was weird!
But deserts over jungles any day. Being Air Force tho, I prefer hotels :p

Yeah that sounds perfect, really you can just say in the Barakus kickstarter something like "any currently available FGG products can be added to your KS reward, to save shipping. We will give you the option to add any products in your KS Survey, the price of the items and the extra shipping costs (if any) will be required by Paypal (or whatever) prior to shipping your pledge and any extras"
How does that work? Basically it will be a bit of juggling in your pledge orders but will encourage people to pick up extra bits. I know I like to get all my missing FGG stuff with my KS rewards, you might have noticed :D

After playing through a bit of this with my boys, just a tester of the excellent Scarlet Heroes ruleset, ...
<digression>for those that don't know it allows you to play old school modules with a single PC by beefing them up, it is a very clever system and the PCs are not so powerful that the don't have to know how to run and/or negotiate. Glass cannons describes them well. With an 8 and 10 year old the power of the PCs allows me to play in FGG modules without being arrested for child abuse!</digression>
... I showed them the Holy Grail sketch of the Brave Sir Robin song. That is now the parties theme song.
"running away and buggering off, brave brave brave Sir Dragor"
Discretion is the better part of valour in OS games. For FGG modules rat-bastard cunning is the better part of cleverness, too :)
Yeah I am a biiiiiiiiig fan of the NG JG stuff. I only have PDFs I have picked up of the older stuff, I don't think much physical made it to NZ! So any JG stuff that I can get over here is a bonus.
For those who don't know JG have released an updated/cleaned up Caverns of Thracia, and it is an excellent PDF.
Yeah I have no desire, ever, to have a rushed product just to get it on time. As a big Battlefield PC Gamer as well and RPGer that is what we got with the latest game in the franchise, a great game ruined by bugs. Looking at my gaming stats the game crashes 1/4 of the times I play it!
So keeping people informed and improving the product is the way ahead. maybe a KS email for those who don;t come here or the FGG forum would be in order.
"Matt is buried in the Cyclopean Deeps, and we like him there"
I would like to thank the web crew at Paizo for the latest update which keeps turning off focus... otherwise I would have missed all these great FGG threads!
Sorry to sidetrack the thread again but to answer a question above, I loved the Ecology of articles. Some fiction and then awesome ideas, with maybe some crunch for a monster type is really useful. Look to the the 13th Age Bestiaries (official and Kobold) for a great way to give verisimilitude, depth and adventure hooks in a monster book. They've taken the ToHC extras and ran with it so well.
And, on another note, Bill mentioned a FGG kickstarter starting next week on the City State of the Invincible Overlord Kickstarter comments. I wonder what...
"we are running one starting next week for our next hardcover--JG and DF can post on it--I have no burn about that. I fact--I'll probably endorse both. Its a small community. We need to support each other!"
Bill stole the top reward on that KS ~ now adding Dwarf Lord to his many titles! :p
