I'm trying to understand something. The following products from Frog God, shown on the store, can they really be bought in PDF format?

* Bill Webb's Book of Dirty Tricks
* The Lost City of Barakus - Player's Guide
* The Lost Lands: Stoneheart Valley
* The Lost Lands: Sword of Air
* The Lost Lands: The Lost City of Barakus

I tried searching on the internet for a review of these, but it seems that they are not really released yet, at least in electronic format. Seems like only the backers are receiving the books.

Am i wrong?

Thank you all

Hi everyone! I tried contacting Frog God from the website, posted on their Facebook page, asked around on RPG.net... i will now try here.

Can someone kindly give me more information about the new Lost City Of Barakus? I would like to run it with Dungeon World, but i cannot find any information about it - even the official store page is empty.
Specifically:
* What's the general opinion about the new edition? Is it a worthy expasion and improvement over the originial?
* Is the material still presented with all the stats isolated at the back of the book? This is wonderful for facilitating conversion
* Is the PDF on the store really up for sale? The fact that the product page has no description whatsoever troubles me
* What is the content of the Player's Guide? Is it just some pages extracted from the main PDF, or does it have new and useful content?

Sadly i was not a backer of the kickstarter, so i cannot se all the backer-only posts. Can somebody please give me his opinion of this new release, so that i can make an informed decision?

Thank you all in advance for your time!

FYI some of the FGG folks have been at PaizoCon this weekend so they may not be quick to answer things on the internet until tomorrow.

Are there any timelines or chronologies for the Lost Lands available or that others have created and would be willing to share?

Thanks, Skeeter! I really liked how Bard's Gate handled it in a non-campaign specific manner should we want to run things elsewhere. But I'd love more crunch along the lines of the old Wilderlands chronology spanning rises and falls for Lost Lands. Looking forward to the next KS.

Just tried to use my code for the Dunes of Desolation and the store is telling me that the code is invalid or expired.

Just came back from NTRPGCon and  had a great time! Thanks Bill and the whole Frog pond! Played in Jillian's Game, Skeeter's Game, Bill's game and even a 2E game with Zeb Cook running! Met a lot of cool people and just really had a lot of fun!

Perhaps the Frog Gods would like to address this point.
 
MCMLXXV has no map scale. Why give us rate of travel if the map could cover 48 feet and ten inches for all anyone knows? Is there supposed to be some kind of scale? I mean, doing a wilderness adventure without scale is just bizarre. How hard is it to draw a bar with a number?
Yes, I can do this myself. But I don't produce commercial modules.

A great read for folks not familiar with how to improvise an old school crawl.

If you're a fan of D&D 3.5 or d20 games, and would like to support a site which helps ensure the openness of d20 gaming, please check out the D&D 3.5 products (MOST FROM FROG GOD GAMES!) we've recently added to shop.d20pfsrd.com. There's a lot of awesomeness here!

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.
 
I've been entering Stoneheart Valley into Realm Works and just finished adding the dungeon locations for all nine levels to the storyboard.  Here are the three different views Realm Works can show of how the rooms/levels are interconnected. Thought some folks might be interested....

Also does anyone know if the One Night Stand or Saturday Night Special series are going to continue? Or are they at an end?

So, reading up on Rappan Athuk more closely now in preperation to play and noticed the "Equivalent Dungeon Level". Is that the "recommended" average level of the party?

note: S&W version

this was confirmed in Dallas, speaking with one of the potential authors. Reme like the bundle of paper.

I've been going over my old copy of Tomb of Abysthor and it mentioned Wrath of Orcus as a product a couple of times.  Was that ever created?

I kind of figured the path from ToA was RA anyway.

Anybody else having a problem with the frog god's website?  I get a message saying that my ip has been banned.  I can't imagine that I pissed off someone there as I don't think I've ever even posted on their forums.

That makes sense. A lot of companies block the site as it is a game company anyway.

so I've been running Rappan Athuk for a my gaming group over 6 months now.  They party played a little around the Mouth of Doom, then went to the Cloister of the Frog God.  They spent quite some time there, clearing it out (and getting a few PCs gated to the elemental plane of water, gulp!).  

finally, they decided to go to Rappan Athuk itself... so they took the 20 mile tunnel from the 2nd level of the Cloister which leads to level 4A of the dungeon., bypassing all sorts of stuff.

so they explored 4A a while, eventually encountering a handful of basilisks.  one PC gets stoned, but the other figure out to paint him in basilisk blood to unfreeze him.  Coated in blood, the player decides to have his character wash off in the stream that crosses the level.  One failed swim check later, he's on his way downstream to level 9A!

the rest of party decides to follow him, so they're now all there on 9A and start exploring.  almost encountered a purple worm, but zigged when it zagged, but then bumped into a part of goblins.  but they were just on patrol and the party didn't immediately attack, so after a stand-off, the party retreats, on their way back to the stairs back to level 7A.

how totally backwards is this party going through the dungeon?!?

they're high enough level that their sorcerer has teleport, so as long as they can get to a safe spot together, they can get out, until they get to some of the magic blocking areas, then they're in trouble,
since the party came in the back door (and said so to the goblins), they're telling them to leave by way of the stairs to 7A.  of course the 48 gargoyles are still there waiting to have some fun.  we'll see who survives next week. :)
