I got mine 2013 one last night.
Nice big box from Noble Knight Games. What's inside?
OOOO a Game in a Red Box!
Nice thick spiral bound books and dice that I have to color in! No crayon though.
The Witch class looks awesome.
Lots of character sheets!
And a big hex map of the lands beyond the North Wind.
Cool back of the box.
Looks great with my other boxed games.
And I saved some space for it on my OSR/Clone shelf.
So far I am far, far more pleased with this game than I have a right to be! In fact I like it even more than the when I reviewed the PDF back in March. I think it is because I have been spending most of my summer and fall reading the Pulp/Appendix N classics. I was always a fan of Lovecraft and Clark Ashton Smith, but I have been reading Edgar Rice Burroughs (John Carter,Pellucidar) and Robert E. Howard.
This game is called "Weird Tales: The RPG" in the Forward, I think that is very, very apt. And since Weird Tales is my new current favorite thing to read, I really enjoy this.
I talked before about wanting to add a Hyborea/Hyperboria to my own world/playing and this
Astonishing Swordsmen & Sorcerers of Hyperborea covers a lot of the same ground as Adventurer, Conquer, King. But the ground in AS&SH is older, colder and has the foot prints of unnamed horrors.
Among other things this game is one of the best I have seen that mix the Lovecraftian Horrors and classic "AD&D" demons together into a believable whole.
Expect me to be going on (and on and on) about this game in the future.
