Well. the Kickstarter for Crypts & Things remastered is live! I admit this one of my favorite retro-clones games. Here’s my rant on the first edition of the game.
First. it’s based around Swords & Wizardry and if you’ve hung around this blog long enough you that I’m a big fan. It also uses many of the Sword & Sorcery house rules from Akratic Wizardry. Also, it’s Swords & Sorcery. In formative years, I was much more into Fritz Leiber and Robert E. Howard than I was Tolkien. I just liked those stories better and the genre better. Heck, Sword & Sorcery deserves a lot more love than its gotten.
And lastly, in a fit of shameless self promotion, I continue working working on my first RPG product (The World of Skarynth) which just happens to be for Crypts & Things primarily. Heck, it was almost “done” then the Kickstarter came along. But no problems. It will just make things better.
So I’m behind this one 100%. It’s a rules system that is full of awesome sauce. It’s a genre that I’m much more passionate about than the usual elves, dwarves, and halflings. So I like it, I love it, I backed it. Just check it out and if you are so inclined back it too.
It’s evening time so I figured things are calming down a bit. Time to do some shameless self promotion. Like you’ve probably already figured out, I like Swords & Wizardry. So much so that I’m will to throw a whole bunch of time and some money into publishing some stuff for it. Most of my thoughts are over on Magic Pig Media but I’ve to post more news and updates here about what I have planned.
I know that’s a lot of projects for a little one-man show. It’s enough to keep me busy for well over the next year and yes I’ve scribbled out notes on my calendar. Heck, I’m already trying to find a 2014 calendar to schedule things. I know better than to announce any rough release dates, things have already gone crazy a couple times. Wish me luck and I’ll keep ranting about these as they get closer to completion.
