Also, you should all buy 2+ copies of OBAM each and tell Jake how fantastic it is and that he should get me to write more books

If its half as good as you keep teasing us it is, I will.  Heck I have to do something to keep my 2 copies of the core book company.

Heh.. actually, I only ever said that I thought it was fantastic, which is hardly surprising since I wrote it (well, most of it).

Is it really any good? You'll all have to be the judge of that. I fucking hope so. I can't wait for/am deadly afraid of the eventual consensus when you guys finally see it. :-)

I wasn't sure I was going to buy it, but after looking at some of the artwork and hearing some of the cool stuff that's in there...well now I just have to buy it.  I really can't wait to try the pack rules out on some players.

Hey, I'm a senechal for the riddle of steel, and this is the first time visiting this forum. Does anybody know when the "Of Beasts and Men", and "Sorcery and the Fey" is supposed to be out? I can't seem to find any info. Gen Info: I love the system and so do my players.

Uh..  try reading this thread and it'll tell you about OBAM anyway :-)

SATF has been delayed for a while, and is likely to come out in two separate parts next year.

OBAM: June 3rd. SATF...got me. TFOB will be out sooner, though. This year (fall mabye?), if I have my way (which I never do...).

Ah damn, sorry, my bad. When I said "try reading this thread" I though you had posted in the OBAM thread, not the general progress report thread.

What can I say, I'm an idiot. :-)

Welcome to the forum. Don't take my example as gospel, most of the folk around here are not as thick as me...

I can't speak for anyone else, but I'm actually rather thin. And I imagine Jake's got a fairly athletic build as well, being a swordsman and all.

...err, and welcome to the Forum.

Thanks for the info Jake. I'll wait as patiently as humanly possible or as a two year old with ADD.

Anything we can do about that


TROS is already doing pretty well. Unfortunately, it's doing pretty well for an RPG (an Indie RPG at that) and the RPG industry has sucked since the mid 80's boom. The D20 thing has re-energised the industry a bit, but what it has really allowed is a lot of publishers to peddle a lot of crap (which would otherwise have never seen the light of day) which sells really well because it has the D20 logo on it. There's going to be a backlash, and soon. It's also not doing a lot for non D20 stuff. That's all IMO of course.


For what it's worth, I stopped playing RPGs for years (since I was a kid) and was re-introduced through D&D 3e.  After research for a bit and reading the QS and the boards here, I went out and bought TROS today because I've been looking for something to address some of the numerous shortcomings of d20.  I know, anecdotally, that other people came back to gaming through 3e as well.  Perhaps d20 does serve as a "gateway drug" to at least a small number of people?

Well, if that's the case then hopefully they don't waste too much time/money on 3e before they learn about the wide world of actually really good RPG's out there (not only TROS, but TROS certainly included).

And welcome to the forum.

Thanks for the welcome Brian.  I'm going to get back to reading the book now.  The next phase in my evil plan is to convert the rest of the gaming group...  ;)
