I have still failed to locate a ACKs book due to Amazon being sold out and I have printed out the PDFs of the ACKs book twice and a copy of the players companion.
Anyway it is my birthday next month (36) and it looks like the new version of D&D is not for me and I am trying to work out what I want. Currently running a Castles and Crusades game and it looks like I am going to be playing some combination of C&C, ACKs, 1st ed and Pathfinder over the next year or so.
Are there any adventures printed for ACKs yet and where can I get cheap international shipping for a real copy as I do not really want to pay $60 for a copy of ACKs and Amazon no longer offers free shipping to New Zealand on orders over $125.
You could also do worse than picking up a few classic D&D .pdfs off D&DClassics; In Search of the Unknown, Keep on the Borderlands, The Lost City, and Horror on the Hill are all pretty good starting modules, and dead easy to convert to ACKS (most of it doesn’t really need conversion).
& Magazine (www.and-mag.com) usually has a mini-adventure that can be converted easily. Dyson Logos (http://rpgcharacters.wordpress.com/) is a mapmaker whose work often gets turned into one-page dungeon crawls, although Dyson’s Delve is an 11 floor dungeon that I’m still wanting to run a party through (I also like Goblin Gully and Fortress on the Ironflow).
he had a sale and i bought both of his delve books. i liked the idea of keying my own adventures, but i found his pre-written ones to be pretty good as well. I also got all of his dodecahedron magazines, which had great adventures too, but some of them are available elsewhere/in the delve books. They’re PWYW though, so if you’re not sure you can just download them first to see if it’s a duplicate of something you might already have.
Believe me, no one is more excited (and terrified as the author) for it to come out. I don’t have a date other than ‘this year’ and ‘when the Kickstarters are finished’. I really wish I knew more, but at least the K’s are almost done!
