That is one HEAVY boxed set! I have yet to sit down and read through it. I Want to, but too many things on my plate. Heck, I haven't even been proof reading Victorious.

I really need some sort of alert on my smartphone for really cool gaming releases.

Thanks for sharing this, TheMetal1 and Tree!

EDIT: Forgot to ask, what version is better/easier to use with C&C: Swords & Wizardry or Pathfinder? I'd lean towards S&W myself (less bloat) but wanted to hear this group's answers.
Go to the Frog God Games website and sign up for their e-mail where they send out daily deals on their PDF's, as well as Necromancer Games PDF's. For example, todays deal is Lost City of Barakus for $9.00.

We only have the two books to review but I'll probably pick up the box in Dallas in June. Zach's stuff is always classy.

I'm hoping to get through Savage Worlds Deluxe today. Then, I need to spend some time with the Amazing Adventures books I bought in the sale a few weeks back.

Clavis' Ghastly Affair ~ it's fabulous. Excellent writing, presentation of the gothic atmosphere of the times and tremendous detail (not necessarily gameplay) to help GMs run the game.

I also like Mike Stewart's Victorious, but have only looked at the Quickstart. I hope to read the full version tomorrow.

Love this time period and hope to run or play in a game.

Thats something I've been noticing about Victorious and Ghastly affair, as well as a few other PRG's I own for that "period", roughly. Great cross over potential with the Cthulhu mythos. :twisted:

Do you mean the 2E era version, or their 3E version? Either way, I think the setting info is pretty much the same. Just they give a lot more with their 3E explosion.

I got the 3E version. I remember seeing it when it first came out years ago, but don't recall much about the setting. I figured it might be good to get some intel on the world for our game. $ 11.99/including shipping; maps were included. Not a bad deal.

Oh, its an awesome setting book! I was just curious since you've mentioned having a storage box of your old gaming stuff. So now I know, it didn't come out of your box of old gaming stuff.

When did pdf's arrive for Victorious? Perhaps I've overlooked an e-mail.

Pretty sure it was a few months ago, now. At least two.

Edit: December 23rd is when I announced the Beta release in the Victorious forum.

Frog God Games' Borderland Provinces series (Adventures in the Borderland Provinces, Borderland Provinces Gazetteer, Player's Guide, Journey Generator, Rogues of Remballo). Just freshly released with that new book smell! Love it.

My RPG Collection in digital format. Namely, the file folders and such as I try to trim it to a size that will fit the SD card on my new tablet. I prefer dead tree versions of my gaming collection, but it's nice having the digital versions for reading on the go, etc. I guess it's not so much "reading" in the "taking it in" sense as much as the "seek, move, organize" fashion, but... it's a technicality until I get the folders and files looking the way I want for quick finding and reading.

Full and complete version of Victorious!

Excellent RPG. Our online group is going to play this next after our current game.

Looking forward to it.

We are? Looking forward to it! Be nice to play a campaign of some length rather than just play test scenarios.

Thank you! I'm working on getting the hard-copy versions out soon!

Hehe . . . Penny and I have been PM'ing, 'cause I thought she was going to run the game and she thought I was going to run the game.
Mebbe we'll get Aergraith to GM!

However it turns out, Tree - you are invited to join the game. I know you were a play tester, so hopefully it will still be fun to play in this game.
