In case you don't then here is the review that is almost as famous as the game itself.
But I have to hand it to Raven c.s. McCracken. He keeps right going and his love for his magnum opus is apparent. Enough that he is currently $3,000 over the goal.
Read the Kickstarter page. Everything you need to know about how this game will turn out is there.
In other news.
There is also a new Castles & Crusades book coming out, Castles & Crusades Codex Celtarum.
I have some mixed feelings about this one.
On one hand it looks fantastic. It reads like it will be a ton of fun and I know it will be a top notch book. I also love Celtic myth and I have wanted to have an old schoolish style D&D Celtic game for years.
Which brings me to the other hand. That was what I was going for in my game Éire.
Éire was going to be produced by Elf Lair Games, but Jason (rightfully so) does not want to make any product that might compete with Troll Lord. I get that. I have things I could do myself that I don't because I don't want to step of the toes of other designers I am friends with or companies I have relationships with.
One of those companies is Cubicle 7. While I have never worked for the company, I have worked with most of their employees on one game or another over the years. They are also producing their own Celtic themed game.
I like both Troll Lords and C7 I know they will make great games and I look forward to them. There is of course room for all these games in the market, including mine, but desire to get it out there is less.
My goal when putting out something isn't very market driven, it is "me" driven. I put out the stuff I want to play. I think others will like it too, but that isn't what fuels my fires. Codex Celtarum is very, very likely to scratch the D&D-as-a-Celt-Game itch I have.
I have known about this one for a while really. Some of Éire made it into The Witch and Eldritch Witchery in fact. So if I do choose to resurrect Éire it might take a different form. But who knows.
In any case I am looking forward to Codex Celtarum and plan on supporting Troll Lords in this.
