You DO get what you pay for. This is a beautiful book. I would recommend getting the hard copy and the pdf. That way you don't beat up the book. Well done gentlemen. If we purchase the book from Northwinds is their a discount for the pdf?
Also can we just buy the pdf map? I purchased a physical copy of this book from Northwinds. It plays handily at the table, even should you port the system to another setting. I think the developers of the world's oldest roleplaying game would be proud of this interpretation of their legacy. I would love to see more third party support for this iteration of old-school rules: alternate settings, modules, et al. The physical copy is really quite a gorgeous book.
Very much worth the price of entry. I just bought the PDF and I'm really interested in the physical copy, but how can I know if they will send to my country? Please allow two to three weeks for delivery in the USA and Canada. Orders delivered to the rest of the world can take up to four weeks, or up to six weeks for Australia and New Zealand and elsewhere.
Jeff T, I will be at Gary Con, will there be any copies available for sale there? Just got the PDF. Reading through it and I would buy a physical book in a heartbeat. Love the art, the feel, the feelings it evokes. Looks like you can still pre-order the hardcover over on the publisher's home page. I am also waiting to buy a POD copy of this book with a reasonable price. I had a private chat with the author, and he said there won't be any for the foreseeable future.
You can still pre-order a physical copy over on the publisher's home page. It's just too big, and they don't offer the POD function for maps that size If you are in the US, that's all fine. If you don't, the shipping is likely going to cost more than the book, and that for many people including myself means not getting the book. Indeed, my eyes watered at the shipping charges. They are, yes, more than the book itself. North Wind Adventures have no control over the cost of shipping; the only thing they could have done differently is make a smaller book, and eliminate the pull-out map.
That would only make a very small minority of their potential audience happy, though, and the compromises necessary really wouldn't be worth their while. Timothy B. I will be reviewing [ Grahame H. I ordered both the PDF and the print version from the author's site, so I'll comment mostly on the print version. Aaron M. Absolutely love the mechanics and classes this game brings to the OSR table, but cannot get over how ugly the new character art by JLB is.
Why Jeff felt the need to add full page art of the worst illustrations I've [ This is probably one of the most lengthy and in depth works in the OSR, and definitely belongs right next to the Rules Cyclopedia in terms of indexes of rules.
The clever usage of subclasses means that the game can have a wide range of parties w [ I adore this game.

Astonishing Swordsmen & Sorcerers of Hyperborea
Every item in our inventory has been inspected, very strictly graded, and bagged for its protection. Shrink Wrapped. Still in the original factory shrink wrap, with condition visible through shrink noted. For example, "SW NM " means shrink wrapped in near-mint condition. Near Mint. Like new with only the slightest wear, many times indistinguishable from a Mint item. Close to perfect, very collectible.
Participants include one referee and one or more players. The referee prepares and presents the adventure material, including the circumstances, challenges, quests, and mysteries faced, and the players create player characters PCs , including fighters , magicians , clerics , and thieves. Hyperborea is in a perpetual state of decay, populated by disharmonious men, hostile monsters, and weird, alien beings. Hyperborea is an adaptable campaign setting that can be used independently or in conjunction with other milieux, published or homebrewed; indeed, Hyperborea might be just beyond the North Wind of any campaign setting.
