For my birthday I got several of FGG's major projects such as Slumbering Tsar and Rappan Athuk.  Even with a quick skim I caught several interestingly amusing things, and am compiling a list of examples in this thread as I read along.

I can't read this as I play in Rappan currently, but perhaps my DM +Carl Niclas will find it amusing!

Sundered Kingdoms PDFs arrived in my mailbox from the Kickstarter this afternoon. Soooo much work to do. Soooo much temptation to read about nefarious cults instead.

Has anyone here run Tomb of Abysthor (S&W) from Stoneheart Valley for a bunch of level 1 and 2 PCs? In that case - how did it work out? I've been doing some reading and it's a tough one, even the first levels. I was thinking of offering some other adventures at first, letting them rise to levels 2-3 before ToA. I run this with Blood & Treasure, so the characters are a bit tougher than S&W Complete, but still. I'm not into balancing and all that but here I see a TPK at once and that's not fun for anyone. Or...;)

Yeah, ToA is rather tough for level one characters and even tough for level twos. As others have posted, WA and CoF are best to run as a lead in to it.

I'm pretty excited.  Last Friday, using the daily deal BOGO, I purchased Sword of Air and Rappan Athuk S&W hardcovers as a birthday present for myself.  This means I have all the hardcovers they've put out for S&W.

Anyway, the awesome part is that they shipped on Saturday.  This means I'll actually have them just in time to open the box on my birthday.  I expected a larger delay in shipping based on previous experience - it's like they knew! ;)

Nice, I've been quite pleased with both of them.  I bought RA a couple of years ago, and just got SoA a few weeks ago. Good stuff!

About this community

Who We Are We consist of old grognard gamers, including a brilliant layout guy, and a cartographer who was not even a gamer when we recruited him. We have more than a few writing credits to our name, and have decided after dealing with publishers, printers and middlemen to head off on our own and make some books. We have developed friendships with, and worked with the best and most famous writers in the industry. We are the real deal. Who We Aren't We won't fill your players coffers with millions of gold pieces and powerful magic items either, at least not without great efforts. Our encounters won't be "balanced" to make sure no one dies, and a 3rd level monster may or may not have 50.2 gp (like its supposed to in certain rule books). Death will be frequent, but fair, and players who fail to use their heads will surely lose them. After all, Tsathogga's special attack is "eats 1d6 adventurers per round". Adventurers taste like chicken....errrr, flies.

Can anyone recommend some cool FGG adventure(s) for level 1-2 characters? My players need to beef up some before I throw them into Tomb of Abysthor or Barakus...

That's good to know, I've been wondering how player strength grows with difficulty in Stoneheart.

Does anyone have any advice for running a group through Rappan Athuk?  I'll be doing it in a play by post format, but any kind of advice will be helpful.  What is a good level to start PCs out as?

Sorry Jenn, was not meaning to get into edition wars. Any system anyone wants to play is fine with me:)  Any progress on your game?

Lore question:

Reading the timeline in the Sundered Kingdoms I saw this:
"Arvonliet killed by the Three Gods, cast into Ginnungagap as Orcus;". 

Does that mean Orcus was Arvonliet?

Also, who are the "3 gods"?

I have a few things for both systems, RA being one of them but I after spending over two years doing Tsar already and only being half way through, I think this is a one time event for me!

Hey Frog God are you not doing daily deals anymore? Haven't gotten an email in a while.

This is my first Google post where I'm not replying to someone else, so I apologize if this is placed incorrectly. Has everybody else stopped receiving Frog God Deal of the Day emails? I received them daily from their inception, but a couple weeks ago--just after the Portalist deal--they stopped coming.

The main reason I'm asking is because the most recent Frog God newsletter mentioned deals this week. I don't want to miss anything from the Frogs!

I need help from a Rappan Athuk (S&W) expert. I have the huge main book. What other books are add-ons/expansions for it? I don't want to buy anything that is already in the main book. Thanks in advance.

Rappan Athuk Expansions are the only "expansions". There are tie-ins to Rappan Athuk from Cyclopean Deeps (in that you can get to RA from areas of the CD) and The Slumbering Tsar Saga (in that their history is tied together). But those two books aren't essential in any way.

Our Hero Lab files for RA are thanks to Karen Lockwood and Erica Balsley (have to give credit where credit is due).
