I'm a tremendous fan of the world of Legend - the setting for both the Dragon Warriors RPG (seriously, grab the pdf of the core rules - it is PWYW, so get it free, read the setting material, and then come back and pay for it - or buy the PoD) and the Blood Sword gamebooks. So I was pleased to see that Dave Morris is Kickstarting a new edition of book five of the Blood Sword series 'The Walls of Spyte'. As Dave says on his blog:
"The Kickstarter is for a limited edition full-colour hardcover. That's going to be a genuine collector's edition, as it will only be available to backers of the Kickstarter. The paperback will go on sale as soon as all the hardcover copies have gone out to backers. So if you just want a paperback copy of The Walls of Spyte, you don't need to back the Kickstarter, you just need to wait a few months."
Importantly, it *is* a new, improved edition of the book; Dave Morris describes his dissatisfaction with the original version here. Now, I'm not one for hardback gamebooks - though this is very tempting, and I would love to see this project hit its stretch goal of £6000 which is an omnibus edition of the Blood Sword gamebooks using something more akin to the system in the Fabled Lands books.
I’m keen to see this come to pass. Bloodsword was a favourite growing up.ReplyDelete
