Re: StarSiege Relaunch

I can answer a few questions here. I'm writing the re-launch of StarSiege, though it's not on the release schedule yet (just trying to get ahead of things where I can). It will be brought in line with AA/C&C and as of now, the plan is that it will be released under the AA line as "Amazing Adventure...

Re: Worst fantasy movie ...

Worst has to be Cave Dwellers/Ator movies.

Good ones? The Ralph Bakshi "Trilogy" of animated films: Wizards (1977), The Lord of the Rings (1978), & Fire and Ice (1983).

Thanks, LD.

Re: Fortress of the Three (New HH Adventure Mod)

I just went through the new modules on the TLG Store site and noticed this.

They will probably return to the city at some point and maybe I can run this new adv...

Re: Frog God Games' ~ Bard's Gate!

I agree with Tree's assessment. I would really like a copy, but that's a big asking price -- even for the PDF. I've been thinking over getting the original from Noble Knight and then getting the PDF later. I'm in on the KS at $1. I doubt I will increase my pledge because I don't have much spare coin.
