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.
I think you have missed what expert rules are, it applies to the character level not amount of crunchy rules. From the Basic (PC levels 1~3) and, Expert (level 4~14) Sets of 'classic' or 'basic' D&D (aka B/X or BECMI.
So people are asking for another box/book that is the same as the beginner box but going from level 6 to higher. Same awesome production values, same clever layout and same neat art set up. Same paired down rules too!
Not that it would happen unless a 3PP does it, which is possible under the OGL. But it would need a kickstarter or something to make it cool enough IMO.
Yeah me too, it'll have to be stop sub, buy on Amazon, re-up sub after. Hopefully we can start with the add-on set.
I am really really wary of 3rd party crunch -modules, settings etc I have loads, but after the d20 "glut-o-crap" (TM) I have not brought any 3rd party crunch, which is sad 'cos I have tones of pre 3E stuff that is great too.
So reading EZG's reviews I am going to bite the bullet and pick up the print./PDF bundle some time next year. It's all on your heads Kobolds!
Yeah on normal books I am not that bothered by a bit of dining, cos they are for use. My box was literally the same size as the books, with only a token bit of bubble wrap. The Paizo corners mentioned above or a total wrap in bubble wrap (so it goes all around) would be better and possibly worth paying a bit more for. It just depends on how much more it would be!
Obviously FGG should take a hit for us weird foreign types ;)

I am 100% on for this sort of pledge still, especially when you consider the shipping and labelling

If it truly is just the books than we can mark it as so. The minute we add the mini or ships, etc we have to label it correctly. We cannot lie to customs as it is a very serious offense. However we will make sure the pledges with only books are labeled that way.
