Adventurer's Backpack

Hi guys, sorry if this question has been asked to death, but I have been away from the forums for a long time and now find myself out of the loop. What is the status of the Adventurer's Backpack? I missed out on the kickstarter but hope it hits retail soon.

Re: Welcome to The Portal!

I have been away from gaming for some time (went back to college full time while working 50 hours a week at my job....yeah I know, it's a death wish). So it is sad to come back and see a cool thing like the portal (which I was going to try today) and read that it is floundering. It sounds like such ...

Re: Conan Adventures in an Age Undreamed Of pdf released

I was too late to back the Modiphius kickstarter, but I have been tempted to take the plunge and buy the pdf. The artwork looks amazing and I am intrigued by the mechanics.

Re: AA as the ruleset for fantasy INSTEAD of C&C?

When I look at tweaking C&C rules, I view AA like an extension of the CKG. The CKG offers a lot of ways to tinker under the hood and modify what you want. I look at AA that way for my C&C game. My buddy Jason put a lot of golden nuggets in AA that are fun ports over to my C&C game. It's Amazing (pun...

Re: Miniatures murder roleplay.

The whole miniatures debate really depends on the style of play. I agree that miniatures detract from the minds eye theatre thing that story driven narrative creates. My brother collects the Dwarven Forge sets and has some elaborate terrain. When we play using those fantastic sets it is fun for sure...

Re: Crusader: List of Adventures and Encounters

Nice list! Thanks for sharing. I think it would be cool to see a Crusader Adventure Compendium, with all those in one book. Heck, TLG could do a saddlestitched book of just John Wrights compiled Crusader Adventures and I would buy it.

As to the interior style, will it match the PH? By that I mean, have the same cool parchment border colors and gloss pages. It would be odd to have the pages white, I think, when sitting open next to the other books. And I noticed that larger font size wasn't mentioned, so I assume it will remain th...
