I just received an email from Frog God Games, they have put a 5E/PF/S&W booklet called Chuck's Dragons up for sale here. The proceeds of this will go to help Chuck Wright, a Gulf War vet. For those that didn't know Chuck Wright is FGG's layout guy, and has recently had surgery due to complications with diabetes. Sadly this resulted in amputation of one of his lower legs. A GoFundMe Campaign was set up to help him with housing etc whilst he recovered, but FGG has also made this special release "collection of six dragon based short adventures" with proceeds going to Chuck.
I've not picked it up yet, as I'll combine it with other items due to shipping costs to NZ. But if you want to help a fellow gamer, veteran and also get your hands on more FGG awesomeness, here's your chance
Yup I'm in the humongous FGG shelf (though all in storage atm due to house move) too. Every Necromancer and FGG product, most (apart from the last few releases, just got too much) in all rules versions. I also have a pile-o Kobold as well.
I'm missing my big shelves of books, PDFs just not the same feel (though great at the table!)
Nice one! I'm sure the efforts that you put in on here and others sites (esp) made a big difference. Hopefully there is some new FGG supporters birthed in the KS, along with the horror that will crawl forth soon!
If it is worth saying it is worth saying twice (or more) ;-)
"I am so keen on this. As a total Necromancer Games/ Frog God Games fan, something this far out of left field (for FGG) is exciting. Like Razor Coast (which I backed when it was first put out) this it's different from most of FGG output, the fact that we have this wide array of gaming is great. Razor Coast was genius, with is sandbox AP. I hope to see something that will excite me whilst turning my stomach (and making me wait impatiently for my kids to reach an older age!) here. Please get on board, I'd love a 5E physical copy but the fluff shown so far is such quality that I'll get any rules set.
Yeah there is already tons of 3P 5E stuff, just not official. I'm M1.9P and Sqn Cdr Flashheart :D
The post was written by ENW's owner, Morrus. Because, bnasically, every time a thread came up about a new 3P 5E product people would go 'oh is there licencing?' and/or 'taht's got to be illegal'. But it is neither, no licencing or any 5E specific OGL nor is it illegal. Big names such as Frog God Games (necromancer Games), Kobold Press, Legendary and Goodman Games have put out 5E stuff.
So hopefully this'll get the 5E treatment as well, but (either way) I'm in with leather bells on!
Yeah 242$ for veteran and all the add ons so far I think!

Ooh I see that. I'm just waiting to be able to order print and get the bundle. Sadly I missed the KS due to lack of funding at the time
And once again we see the awesome FGG customer service, what appeared in my downloads? A copy of SoA (both versions) and the map. THANKS FROGGIES! I have a couple of hundred burning a hole in my pocket for the print versions once they are in the store :D
Mmm might even be the font size, it was just next to the Campaign Guide (which has smaller font) and the comparison makes the larger text look more pixelated.
It also looks fine on my better resolution/PPI Surface Pro 3. I normally read PDFs on that but was taking a sneak peek on my desktop - never again! Carry on, nothing to see here! Sorry :D
To me the rules complexity starts at around the level of the PF Beginner Box, which is ideal. I like the more complex PF but at the table, and with my players, this is better. Pick up the free basic rules PDF (which has everything you need for the core 4 classes and races) if you want to see how it works. It plays really well at the table.
"Every time a "D&D" RPG comes at a certain point, it answers with introducing Tech, and that's usually close to the end of it. Dark Sun/Spelljammer AD&D, Eberron D&D ..."
Not quite, for example Original D&D Vol 2 Monsters & Treasure mentions Robots and Androids. Sci Fi has been in from the beginning as, when D&D started, there was no Sci Fi - Fantasy split, it was all just fantasy.
However I am not a big fan of overt Sci Fi in my fantasy, but my kids who I game with love it. They also don't have an internal Sci Fi/Fantasy divide in their heads yet, just pure imagination.
