Joseph Bloch is one of those rarities in the OSR side of the RPG biz.
He has a blog (nothing new there), has a retro clone (also nothing new) and he runs some Kickstarters to get his product to the presses. Also nothing new.
What Joseph and BRW games DOES do that is noteworthy is how quickly he gets his Kickstarters done.
The rewards for the Adventures Dark and Deep Players Manual shipped more than a month early.
And now the rewards for Adventures Dark and Deep Bestiary are shipping now, about 6 months early.
That is great, then add in the fact that Adventures Dark & Deep is also a fun game and worth the money then you have the recipe for a very happy fan base.
I want to spend some time this week talking about all the products Joe and BRW has to offer.
A Curious Volume of Forgotten Lore
Adventures Dark and Deep Players Manual
Adventures Dark and Deep Game Masters Toolkit
Adventures Dark and Deep Bestiary
Darker Paths 1: The Necromancer
Darker Paths 2: The Witch
Adventures Dark & Deep is built on the premise of "What If". In this case, "What if Gary Gygax had still been with TSR and produced 2nd Edition AD&D?"
Joe has spent a lot of time coming through Dragon magazine articles, interviews and then taking all of that and making some logical assumptions about the game. You get something that might have been the 2nd Edition game of a parallel universe.
So join me this week as we go over this game.
