    Played DnD in late 70s, then Traveller, Universe. Life took away from gaming for a few decades. Returned to RQ6 and a voracious exploration of what's happened since 80s.

    Pathfinder, prepping for some RQ6.

  2. Word.
  3. I'm glad there are still signs of life. I look forward to seeing the fruits of your labor.
  4. You must have an old RQ6 pdf, sir. My pdf of RQ6 2nd Ed is 38.2 MB. Mythras interactive pdf is 37.4 MB. In contrast, my Mindjammer pdf is 203.8 MB. So, there's some perspective. I'm looking forward to looking at the printed book!
  5. I just bought the pdf from DTRPG. So, I gather no break/credit towards the physical book when it is released. Bummer.
  6. I want TDM to maintain their current focus and not seek such IP-hooked projects unless they happen upon one that really trips their collective triggers. They have carved a nice niche out and I think nurturing it will serve them best. And, I cant think of an IP that would make sense to me. Dune pops to mind, but then I imagine what a herculean project that would be (if it could (or should) be done). No. Eschew such entanglements for the time being. Yes. Wait. I am so slow. Black Sails. Put forth a setting for Starz' Black Sails series. That would rock.
  7. It would appear not.
  8. That's what I find, too. I'd not realized there were no illustrations. Of course, I only recently obtained the '81 edition. I've had the '77 edition. I understand this the current state of RPG books requires lots of art. I've come to hold the opinion that one should forgo art if one can't get GOOD EVOCATIVE MOOD GENERATING art like that which was achieved in the Astonishing Swordsmen and Sorcerers of Hyperborea rules. I like that the '81 books don't have illustrations.
  9. Thank you, Loz!
  10. Well, when I ordered my copy from the TDM store ( a day or three ago), the most expensive shipping (~$35 for overnight UPS, if I recall correctly) was added by default. I was able to choose a less costly option, but there WAS a moment of "Holy Shit!" when I saw shipping almost as much as the cost of the book. I live in the U.S. If you all can look into changing the way shipping is added to new orders at first click, I think you will do your patrons a service.
  11. Thank you for sharing your progress. I am looking forward to having the final fruit of your labor. I like a bit of white space to allow the page to feel less claustrophobic and to make room for the odd note.
  12. I recommend The Design Mechanism's excellent Mythras (formerly RQ6) rules as a replacement for Magic World.
  13. This is cool. I look forward to seeing what you come up with.
