Here's the link to Rappan Athuk on the Paizo blog.

Frog God Games

Rappan Athuk!
Notice the encyclopedic style stitch binding with fabric bookmark.

P.S. Thank you Liz for posting this picture!

Frog God Games

Please note that it would be a temporal impossibility for the kickstarter supporters for Rappan Athuk to be the first to get Rappan Athuk; as it was in fact published before, twice. Granted it wasn't as large as this particular addition, and certainly not done in two different game systems. In fact, due to the extra time we took to check the Swords & Wizardry version, we were unable to get that out to GenCon. Frankly, we would have liked to have both versions available for purchase there, but it was just not doable with the time and resources we had at our disposal. I've been assured from Chuck that the S&W version is indeed at the printers now. The biggest delay has been the dice, which we are still waiting to recieve.

I want to make it clear, however, that the purpose of this kickstarter was never for the pledge supporters to be the first to get this book. In fact I am 100% certain it was to "help to fuel the production of Rappan Athuk for both the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game system and the Swords & Wizardry rules." Because "we hope to be able to raise enough funds to distribute this book to brick and mortar game stores!" It is a shame that some misunderstood this statement.

I personally have contributed to several kickstarters, some more than 9 months ago, and I have yet to receive the hard copies. In some cases the products promised have not even been completed yet. You see, that is the purpose of most kickstarters, to fund the production of the game. I am pretty proud of the fact that we are delivering on a promise sooner than most. Waiting on delivery of kickstarters is an exercise in patience, this I know.

Anyway! $491 away from colouring books in the S&W Kickstarter!

(Maybe a frog should start a new thread in case people who don't get the newsletter/visit the website/read this thread etc. can find out about it?)

We have a thread in the proper place for 0E compatible Swords and Wizardry.

P.S. Thanks to Kthulhu for starting the thread.

Frog God Games

Thanks Liz!

Frog God Games

We hit over $15k, Erol Otus for cover art!!

Frog God Games

On the S&W kickstarter, we hit the $15,000 bonus level. Erol Otus does the cover art on both the S&W Rulebook and Monster book!

When I see more of this beauty, I'll let you know.

It is a hex crawl in the traditions of Judge's Guild Wilderlands of High Fantasy and other old school hex crawls.

It is literally chock full of adventure encounters in a true sandbox, rather than a single adventure. Essentially it is a map with labeled hexes and text that describes what is encountered within various hexes, including backstory, monster descriptions, stat blocks, and the like.

These are really weighty in terms of content. They generally take me at least twice as long to edit as a regular adventure does.

If you are interested in seeing exactly what I mean, I highly recommend plunking down $5 for a pdf.

Shattered Empire old school Hex Crawl for PFRPG!

Thanks again Liz!

Frog God Games

Welcome to the Pirate Coast: 0E edition

Thanks Liz!

Frog God Games

One of two new 0E Hex Crawls!

Thanks Liz!

Frog God Games

A low level 0E adventure from FGG!

Of course players may want to create several backup characters, just in case...

Thanks for getting this up Liz.

Frog God Games

Pirate Coast is up!

(Liz is awesome!)

Frog God Games

And here's the PFRPG Castle Baldemar!

(A six pack of thanks to Liz!)

Frog God Games

Castle Baldemar lives!

Thank you Liz!

Frog God Games

We are live!

Thanks Liz!

Frog God Games

ONS 4: Dread Saecaroth and SNS 2: Castle Baldemar's Dungeon should be available here soon. I'll send a note to the Frog God and ask when.

I am going to purchase this product because of this excerpt. FGG should thank you for the marketing.
To avoid confusion: My comment wasn't excerpted from the text, but was inspired by the character. Reading that monstrous NPC gave me several ideas about how I can use him!

I know that I personally love feedback like that. To see how puchasers can immediately own the NPC, module, or campaign and make it their own helps us to keep providing material that gamers want.

Frog God Games

If things go the way we are working towards, you will not only be able to purchase this from Paizo's website, but also from various game and book stores.

And yes, the Kickstarter only special goodies remain only for those who pledged their support.

Frog God Games

I am never sure who is responsible for correcting ad copy. I'd reach in and flick out the offending "solve" if I could.

Incidentally, nicely done Maesters Logue and Agresta. This was a very entertaining module to edit. I especially liked the reactions of the cat.

Frog God Games

Yes, more Pathfinder rulebooks are utilized beyond the Core. The volume is referenced accordingly.

Frog God Games

Congratulations to Richard Pett, Mike Kortes and Greg and the entire Open Design crew. Good luck!

For those who wish to record their PCs deaths, we at Frog God Games have set up an Obituary page on our website. Be warned, there are spoilers!

Here's the Link

Only a few of the upper end backers should have recieved a survey as yet.
It may take a bit to get this straightened out. The Kickstarter Survey process is far from efficient and Blonde Frog is trying to work with them to get it operational. Bear with us.

Also, this is a holiday for most folks in the US.

Grr meant to make a pledge last week but was busy with work. *Question* If we didn't participate in the kickstarter, is there still a way to get a hardcopy? I clicked on Rappan Athuk under products on the froggod page but it only leads to the kickstarter page.

You will be able to purchase a hardcopy by the time these books have returned from the printer. So expect August. I cannot say for certain if preorders will be made available after the kickstarter deadline.

Frog God Games

Frog God subscribers have had access to the individual chapters for a while, but not the compiled book pdf. That only became available last week.

It was both the lairs and the list of monsters by terrain that once existed on our site. Hopefully Blonde and the Frog God can locate them. Failing that, I am sure that Chuck still has them. We'll get them back up. Meanwhile here's a handy map to our waiting room... Map

What is the planned release order for all of the RA stuff? Is RA releasing at GenCon? Sooner (hopefully not later)? I'm hoping you guys get all possible pdfs (at least RA full and the Players Guide) uploaded to the Bytes Interactive site prior to you all heading to GenCon, where I'm assuming the dead tree version will be available. I can live without the paper copy shipping to me for a (little) while, but I'd really love to get access to the pdfs as soon as you guys can make them available to the Kickstarter contributors.

This question might seem a little premature, but we're only like 6 weeks away from GenCon and July is gonna be here and gone before we know it, so I thought I'd throw it out there...

Our plan was to try to have it ready for GenCon. Chuck is working on it furiously. *cracks whip* :-)

We will not be attending GenCon as a company. Greg was planning on going, but something else came up. Though I do believe Soulstealer - I mean Blonde Frog will attend. She won't be selling our books.

If we get the book out in time, I think that Paizo will be selling it at their booth. Also there is another booth that sells old school game materials and has sold our books at GenCon in the past.

I shudder to ask, what its S&W's kickstarter?
I think it is for a deluxe version of the Complete Rules. But I may be wrong.

BK is correct. I believe that one won't be up till this fall.

There will be some nice strech goals for this one, but it won't be nearly as pricey as Rappan Athuk.

Sword and Wizardry players know that it takes far fewer words and pages for the rules. We should have some nice art for this one! I can't wait to see it.

The more I play and run S&W the more I like it. For the nostalgic or those who want to try out the truely old school feel of DnD from the 70's, S&W brings back that game. There are others out there, but IMO this is by far the best written version. I am biased of course, now that I've met the writer in person. Matt Finch is a gentleman, possibly even beating Greg Vaughan. But don't tell Greg that. :-)

Frog God Games

I am not Greg, but I can answer some of your questions.
We had a cadre of conversion experts and converted our own versions. There are some that Paizo, for example, later converted for their Bestiaries that turned out slightly different than ours. I like it as it gives home game designers multiple choices to use for their own encounter designs.

As for the source of monsters that is as accurate as possible. There really is no room for error in citing sources. I am not personally familiar with the Creature Collection books, but I would tend to side with the experts in the titles of the books.

But we made it so that you did not have to go back and purchase out-of-print books. Everything you need to run the monster in question is in the book.

Still can't see the full PDF in my downloads here on Paizo. =\

Liz said in another thread that they will send out an email when it is available.

Frog God Games

We left the "salad" typo in Tome of Horrors Complete for nostalgia. :-)

Frog God Games

We have many customers in Canada and the only difficulty they seemed to have was the relative slowness. Our customers come from all over the world. In fact, a fellow in Malaysia just reported that his Slumbering Tsar copy arrived. (See the Slumbering Tsar thread)

Just to clarify, the dice given out for the 1000 backers are the same ones that are being given out for the $250+ pledges at the $120,000 stretch goal?

Correct, and those already getting a set of dice (or more than one) will be getting one more set. As the bonus goal indicates, all at the $20 pledge level and above get this if we reach 1000 pledges.

5k is both conventions

Whoops, thanks Dragnmoon.

The 3k pledge levels send you to a single convention, either NTRPG in Dallas or PaizoCon in Seattle (2013). You still get a healthy number of signed and numbered hardcovers, not leather-bound as I understand it.

In fact it looks as if the 30 extreme limited edition leather-bound books are all taken!

Frog God Games

The maps on the downloads link of the Slumbering Tsar products page have been there a while. We have player maps in the book that are duplicates of the DM maps with the numbers and such removed. They will also be found in the full pdf, once we can get that uploaded to the A+ Download site.

Here is the direct link to the stand alone player map of The Desolation. I am not sure if Greg's old link lead directly to it when he first linked it, but Blonde Frog has been moving things around on our website.

We are currently working on a Player Maps download for all. I'm not sure how it will be distributed but Greg has said that we have no intention of adding to the cost.

Is there any word on this download yet? I'm itching to get some of the PC friendly maps to my table without having to leave my book out.

The Bytes Interactive A+ Downloads person was still on vacation last I heard. The player maps, already in the hardcover book, will be included along with the remainder of The Slumbering Tsar Saga (with the exception of the bonus chapter). If you ordered from Paizo, I believe the pdf will be available from them some time afterwards, but they would know better than I.

Hmm... If we subscribed via froggodgames (and got the pdfs as they were released) will we get the large compiled pdf uploaded to bytes interactive?

And the whole thing? FANTASTIC :) ~ thank you for a very fun adventure.

We are waiting for the Bytes Interactive, A+ Downloads person to come back from vacation so it can be uploaded. Chuck has informed us the file's been sent.

Frog God Games

I think that the hardcover available at Paizo includes the bonus chapter. It just isn't signed or numbered.

Okay. Where would you like us to post, should we find anything? More eyes, more quality.

Here's an ideal location so that we spot it and don't clutter up Paizo's boards with them.

Frog God Games

I'd like to take the time to thank all of those persons who have pledged into our Rappan Athuk Kickstarter. The Frog God and his minion Blonde Frog (aka Soulstealer Frog) are even now attempting to come up with yet another stretch goal. We have blown past all others screamingly fast. We love you guys!

If you want the uncensored picture of the animated statue, I believe you can still see it on the Swords & Wizardry version of the module.

Quick question. I've been reading about these new and improved pdf maps. I've bought this thing chapter by chapter in its entirety and I wonder if updated versions of these pdfs will become available to those of us who bought the book this way.

Because I still spent a lot of money...

An excellent question which I will attempt to remember to bring up when I see the rest of the gang of frogs at Dallas this weekend. And if you are planning to be present at the North Texas RPG Con as well, you could ask them in person!
