Excellent work, and welcome to the forums and the Hellfrost!
Did not actually expect to have to shell out as much as $50 for content that was previously free…
Does the atlas actually contain content from all the 52 region guides + more?
Not quite. The Atlas contains all the gazetteer material from the Region Guides. The various religious material (festivals and minor gods) formed part of Matters of Faith, while the monsters were added into Expansion 1 and 2.
We certainly hope so! I’m literally just sending the files to the printer for proofing now!
Just a quick addition to Enno’s comments. You can recruit new hirelings, but they are not siege engineers, war mages, Knights Hrafn, or other military specialists. They help run the Resource, but they don’t go adventuring.
Mail it to me and I can sick it in the official freebie section.
There are certainly no plans for a LOF Atlas (as in there is nothing in the schedule), but we haven’t said a definite no. The cartography takes a huge amount of time and we have two staff wages to support. Unless a Kickstarter covers the true cost in time for the maps and adding new material, we can’t take away time from products that pay the bills.
We’ve got some special things planned for 2018 – our 10th anniversary – though!!
Yep, poisons are included. Poisons will use the rules from SWD with regard the effects, though.
No freebie. They’re different settings with different trade dress, so if the first book sells we’ll consider LOF as a separate product.
Many, many changes to herbalism now. No standard remedies, for instance, but rather each herb has its own listing. Means I can have more variety. So some herbs might grant a +2 but others only have +1, for instance, while others have unique abilities.
Every herb will have some sort of flavor text – I think it adds to the background. For instance…
Although the armies of the Liche-Priest enjoyed great success, they were eventually driven back into what is now the Liche Lands of Old. It is said that as their necromantically-empowered corpses fell on the soil of the Barrowdales, a great many evil spirits were awakened.
Grave weed grows only on barrows and cairns still containing sleeping dead, those who failed or refused to answer the Liche-Priest’s call to arms. It is thus of some comfort for explorers to find corpse blossom, for they know that whoever lies beneath their feet is not an undead.September 20, 2017 at 11:54 pm in reply to: Anyone know how to get tracking number for shipped items? #8764
