Here I take a look at one of FGG's Lost Lore sourcebooks, detailing a new base class themed around making portals.

As I work my way through Rappan Athuk and Expansion Volume 1, I have arrived at another stumbling block. In Level 3D, Section 1: The Tunnels of Terror, it refers to the fact that  Area 3D-7 leads to Level 4C, Section 1, and a secret door near 3D-21 leads to level 4C. Also the map to section 1 has a passage coming off of 3D-7 that says it goes to level 3, Section 3.

Neither level 3, Section 3, nor level 4C seem to exist. Am I missing something?

They are also offering the below sale on their FGG site:

The Black Friday sale was a huge success! While venturing deep into the warehouse dungeon we found two epic titles that we somehow still had in stock, so we decided to put them up for sale!

Any chance FGG will do an official rules set for Fantasy Grounds 2 (VTT)?

There's a discussion of using RealmWorks for GMs running games in the Lost Lands going in the FGG forums. Come provide feedback and if you are a RealmWorks user, your experiences.

For backers of the newest Kickstarter, The Boarderland Provinces, I'm wondering what system people are going to choose.

Quick question, maybe +Matt Finch could answer.  In the 5e conversion of Spire of Iron and Crystal, was it intended for the power level of some of the creatures to go up that drastically, or was there an error in conversion?  Speaking of things like the Oozeanderthals going from 3HD (original) to 12HD.  It's easy enough for me to adjust it back down, but I was curious if it was intentional.

Is there a map in existence that shows the entirety of the Froggy continent? Akados, sinnar coast, razor coast etc with the areas between them laid out so they can be  easily visualized?

Rm 3A-10 in Rapan Athuk -"The Gatehouse"  has portals to " a small grove 5 miles from Fairhill",  I found that eventually on the Akados map, and "to an oasis between the two statues of the Numenorean gods, approximately 400 miles to the south in the southern desert" and I cannot find a southern desert anywhere. That should be on the Sinnar Coast map, but I see no deserts, southern or otherwise. 400 miles south would put it ~ 200 - 250 miles west of Endhome.

Can anyone help clear up my confusion?

Ahhh, so that location went north. Thanks, Chuck (and Greg).

Beware the dwarves of Clan Craenog on that plateau. They got bent out of shape over some guy from Libynos a few millenia ago and haven't dropped their grudge.

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.

Seems like I'm not the only one interested in a S&W Ruleset for Fantasy Grounds 2...
 
I'm currently in the process of learning how to build a ruleset in Fantasy Grounds (partially to help me fullfill my $100 backer promise, partially for fun) and it got me thinking:  Why doesn't Frog God release an official, VTT ruleset for FG? Given that the majority of us play online in some capacity it would be a wonderful venue for their products. Smite Works is even very helpful with aiding companies in setting up rulesets/modules/libraries (See Kobold Press 5e stuff and Thule 5e Kickstarter).

If I was them and was going to "support" any VTT it wouldn't be FG, it would be roll20 because it's the most popular. I say that as someone that doesn't use either (I use MapTools).

That said there are probably existing frameworks in Roll20 that already support the mechanics of S&W... I know there is a Basic D&D Framework for maptools that will.

I picked up Black Monastery, Tomb of Horrors 4 and Cyclopean Deeps 1 & 2 during the Holiday Sale (all Swords & Wizardry versions). All good stuff and was glad a second chance at the Black Monastery.  Really liked the story behind the development and the overall story arch. 

In regards to Cyclopean Deeps, anyone running it (or perhaps has run it) that would like to share their thoughts and experiences?  Looks pretty intense.  If I run it it will likely be with Castles & Crusades.

Got the package in yesterday. Excellent stuff! Reading thru Cyclopean Deeps 1 and really hope to get a chance to run this. I've alluded to it a few times in my game now I can add a lot more detail. Just have to figure out how to get the players there.

I just received an email with an offer of the Black Monastery. Does anyone know if the print includes the pdf. The way the email states it they are separate.

I've got all the Tome of Horrors Complete (SW), Tome of Horrors 4 (SW) and Matt Finch's S&W Monster Book. Are there critters in the FGG Monstrosities book that I'm still missing?

Thanks! I'll likely get it because I'm a FGG completist. I'll backburner it so I can pick up some of the other goodies first.

This is more a public service announcement I noticed on Drive-Thru RPG/RPGNow.  Don't worry, the OSR products haven't been taken off the website en masse.  The rules system search tag has been removed as a category and under related products.  So things like Sword of Air are now just "D&D/D20."

Regarding FGG products, this affected some of the Swords & Wizardry books such as Sword of Air.
