Nice! Bought, downloaded and will read tomorrow :) Then I'll post more.

Also, I had some questions in the Isle of Stone thread that I hope will be answered ;)

Hope the reply covered most of your points ;)

I've finally read through Depths of Winter and once again I must say it's both a great idea and great execution.

I liked the optional encounters and the freedom given to the players when it comes to actual planning. I agree with the other reviewer that it can easily end in TPK, and I think that realization of the danger might help the players be more careful and resourceful. I liked the pregens a lot, too. Great job!

I actually went back and put up short reviews for Depths, as well as Wolves and Isle on DTRPG.

As always looking forward to new material :)

I must second Pete's thanks. This makes it all worthwhile :)

Picked this up recently and really enjoy it. I think the setting is worthy of more Renaissance-based historical (fantasy) adventuring.

Thanks, Vorax. Roger is working hard on another adventure for the setting now :)

Cool!

Rogue Games have done some great material for a colonial American setting for their Colonial Gothic RPG, but so far have only produced one book for the French and Indian War. Precis Intermedia did a nice Colonial Era supplement for their Coyote Trail RPG. The guys at Sixtystone Press are currently at work on colonial setting material for Call of Cthulhu. Have you thought of chiming in and doing some kind of mini sourcebook for this setting?
