HYPERBOREA PLAYERS’ MANUAL

The Hyperborea Players’ Manual compiles Volumes I, II, and III of Astonishing Swordsmen & Sorcerers of Hyperborea, as originally presented in the AS&SH 2E hardback. The milieux of AS&SH are inspired by the fantastic literature of Robert E. Howard, H.P. Lovecraft, and Clark Ashton Smith. AS&SH rules and conventions are informed by the original 1974 fantasy wargame and miniatures campaign rules as conceived by E. Gary Gygax and Dave Arneson.

The Hyperborea Players’ Manual contains all the information that you need to play AS&SH, including character creation, spells, and adventure and combat rules. You can play a fighter, magician, cleric, or thief, or one of their many subclasses:barbarian, berserker, cataphract, huntsman, paladin, ranger, or warlock; cryomancer, illusionist, necromancer, pyromancer, or witch; druid, monk, priest, runegraver, or shaman; assassin, bard, legerdemainist, purloiner, or scout. Character races include Amazons, Atlanteans, Esquimaux, Hyperboreans, Ixians, Kelts, Kimmerians, Picts, and several lost or moribund racial derivations, plus a variety of admixtures.

Printed on heavy card stock with a matte finish, this screen will be durable enough to withstand the rigours of regular use. Its landscape orientation will allow the referee to see and reach over the screen whilst concealing notes from players’ prying eyes. The Hyperborea Referee’s Screen is a fantastic resource for novice and advanced referees alike, facilitating smoother game play and improved game immersion. Spend less time leafing through rule books, and game on!

RATS IN THE WALLS AND OTHER PERILS

Rats in the Walls and Other Perils will feature the classic Astonishing Swordsmen & Sorcerers of Hyperborea adventure, “Rats in the Walls”, by Jeffrey P. Talanian. This adventure, originally published in 2014 as a special “swag bag” giveaway at Gary Con VI, was inspired by the eponymous story by H.P. Lovecraft. This revised and lightly expanded version will bring that title up to date with our current catalogue of adventure modules.

Rats in the Walls and Other Perils also will include two more short adventures: Chainsaw’s “The Brazen Bull”, and “The Lamia’s Heart”, by Jeffrey P. Talanian. (An early draft of the latter was published in the AFS fanzine.) Edited by David Prata, all three adventures are set in the dismal City-State of Khromarium and designed for from four to six characters of 1st or 2nd level. Like our popular adventure module The Anthropophagi of Xambaala™, we think you will find this to be a great AS&SH campaign starter. It contains just enough mystery and danger to whet the appetites of your players, introducing them to the weird world of sword-and-sorcery role-playing in the City-State of Khromarium.

  • “Rats in the Walls”: A dockside tavern in Khromarium is plagued by rats of a most unusual breed. These abominable rodents have ruined the tavern keeper’s business and his life. The man is desperate, and he offers a substantial reward for the elimination of his horrific problem. 
  • “The Brazen Bull”: Whilst traversing one of the seedier neighbourhoods of Khromarium, your party are solicited by a greasy-haired Pict. He offers to sell you a sheaf of magical lotus that allows one to see the future or to brew potions that empower the imbiber with sorcery. He beckons you to follow him into a dilapidated building....
  • “The Lamia’s Heart”: Your party are contracted by the nascent master of an unsanctioned thieves’ guild. To earn his favour, you must steal a singular gem from the mansion of a prominent merchant. Purloining this gem, however, may raise the ire of the city’s official thieves’ guild; notwithstanding, the reward is significant.

Rats in the Walls and Other Perils will measure 8½ × 11 inches and is estimated to be 40 pages long. It will have a thick, gatefold cover that contains maps and a ship’s deck plans. This module will feature cover art by Mike Tenebrae. Interior illustrations are by Ian Baggley, Johnathan Bingham, Mick Fernette, Diogo Nogueira, Glynn Seal, Jason Sholtis, Mike Tenebrae, and Del Teigeler. Cartography is by Andreas Claren and Glynn Seal.

STRETCH GOALS

We have come up with some modest stretch goals for this Kickstarter campaign. More may be added while the project is live.

  •   $27,500 = Rats Bookmark. ***UNLOCKED*** Every Rats in the Walls and Other Perils print customer receives a free 2 x 6-inch card stock bookmark inserted in each module. This bookmark will feature the Mike Tenebrae cover art seen above.
  •   $30,000 = Iconic Characters PDF. ***UNLOCKED*** Every backer receives a PDF of seven iconic characters (barbarian, cataphract, huntsman, paladin, cryomancer, runegraver, and purloiner), developed by David Prata, Jeffrey Talanian, and Del Teigeler. These characters (usable as PCs or NPCs) will be fully pre-generated, presented at low, middle, and high levels. Each will be illustrated by Mr. Teigeler as both a full figure and profile bust. These seven characters are also featured on the cover of the Hyperborea Player Character Folder.
  •   $32,500 = Hyperborea Players' Manual Bookmark. ***UNLOCKED*** Every Hyperborea Players' Manual print customer receives a free 2 x 9-inch card stock bookmark inserted in each book. This bookmark will feature the Val Semeiks cover art seen above.
  •   $35,000 = More art. ***UNLOCKED*** Additional art commissioned for Rats in the Walls and Other Perils

ADD-ONS!  

We will have several exciting add-ons to offer. Add-ons will be managed through BackerKit after the campaign is over. 

***It is not necessary to increase your Kickstarter pledge for add-ons!*** 

This can be done through Backerkit after this campaign is over. Also, note that add-ons increase shipping fees, which will be billed through Backerkit afterwards. The following items are amongst those that will be included as add-ons:

Each of the four products offered in this Kickstarter also will be offered as BackerKit add-ons: 

  • Hyperborea Players' Manual
  •  Hyperborea Player Character Folder (+ 10 booklet-style, goldenrod character sheets)
  • Hyperborea Referee's Screen
  •  Rats in the Walls and Other Perils 

So, if you want a combination of items that do not comprise a pledge level, you can purchase what you would like through BackerKit. For example, if you want one Hyperborea Players' Manual and three Hyperborea Player Character Folders, you can pledge for the PLAYERS' BUNDLE and then use BackerKit to order the extra two folders.

We also are introducing a special add-on with this campaign: A frightening Rats in the Walls and Other Perils T-shirt, featuring the art of Mike Tenebrae. This dark chocolate Hanes ComfortSoft® Tagless T-shirt will cost $25.00 and will be available in all sizes.

Again, all add-ons will be handled through BackerKit when the campaign is over. At that point, you can pick your add-ons, select shirt size, and so forth.

FULFILMENT

Fulfilment for digital rewards (PDFs) is handled by OBS (DriveThruRPG / RPGNOW). If you do not have an account with DriveThruRPG or RPGNOW, then please start one. When we collect survey information, we will ask you for the email address associated with that account.

Fulfilment for physical rewards is handled in-house by North Wind Adventures. We do not use third parties for the fulfilment of physical rewards. 

SHIPPING

At North Wind Adventures, we employ the finest shipping techniques. We enclose items in bubblewrap, and we use boxes to ship, not envelopes. Please note that shipping fees will be billed through BackerKit after the campaign is over. 

***Please do not increase your pledge to account for shipping!*** 

This will be managed after the campaign is over. The following fees are estimated based on projected size and weight of each pledge item. Note that if you purchase any add-ons, shipping fees increase accordingly. Current estimates are as follows:

SHIPPING ESTIMATES 

  •  Player Character Folder = $6 USA, $18 Canada, $25 Rest of the World
  •  Referee's Screen = $6 USA, $18 Canada, $25 Rest of the World
  •  Rats in the Walls and Other Perils = $6 USA, $18 Canada, $25 Rest of the World
  •  Players' Manual = $7 USA, $38 Canada, $50 Rest of the World
  •  Players' Bundle = $7 USA, $42 Canada, $60 Rest of the World
  •  Referee's Bundle = $6 USA, $25 Canada, $35 Rest of the World
  •  All-in Bundle = $7 USA, $45 Canada, $63 Rest of the World
  •  "Excelsior!" Bundle = $8 USA, $60 Canada, $85 Rest of the World
  •  Retail Bundle = $10 USA, $75 Canada, $100 Rest of the World
  •  Original Art + All-In Bundle = $7 USA, $45 Canada, $63 Rest of the World

Again, these are estimates: educated guesses based on the projected size and weight of each item. These prices are subject to change. 

HOW CAN YOU HELP?

Besides the obvious (pledging!), you can help this campaign thrive! Please share this Kickstarter campaign at your favorite social media platforms (Facebook, G+, Instagram, MeWe, Twitter, blogs, forums, etc.). Tell your gaming pals, tell your gaming group, tell your FLGS! Every little bit helps, and it is immensely appreciated. North Wind Adventures is a small, family-run business located in a small town in New Hampshire. We continue to strive to produce high-quality gaming materials with top-notch production values.

Risks and challenges

Every Kickstarter project faces potential setbacks that can slow or even halt production. To mitigate the possibility of setbacks, I've taken several steps to ensure a positive outcome: The writing is done, and the cover art is mostly done. Most of the interior art and maps is finished, and editing is underway. Once this Kickstarter funds, we will have layout, printing, and fulfilment to manage.

Stretch goals are another concern. Of course, the idea is to create stretch goals that provide incentive for additional funding, but it is easy to fall into the trap of dreaming up stretch goals that are difficult, costly, and/or time-consuming to produce. To this end, I've come up with modest, reasonable stretch goals.
