African-flavored fantasy adventure gaming
Why is Kevin Crawford
(Sine Nomine Publishing on RPG Now
) so awesome? After reading An Echo Resounding
I get the itch to return to my Wilderlands of High Fantasy
map (pretty big
) and give it the Sine Nomine
treatment. I also liked what he said on the Jennisodes
as he was talking about running a sandbox and publishing supplements that help others run sandboxes.
I backed his Spears of the Dawn with $8 on Kickstarter. I really like this part:
- To encourage this, all art used in Spears of the Dawn will be released into the public domain upon its publication. You are encouraged to use it for your own commercial or noncommercial products. – Kevin Crawford
I started looking around the Sine Nomine website and noticed Other Dust. A post-apocalyptic old school game? I’m thinking Mutant Future and Gamma World. Have you tried it? I just read the review on Grognardia. I guess I could justify the $19.90 price tag for the PDF as a sort of donation for the free Stars Without Number.
Then again, when will I ever have the time to play all of it? And yet, I can’t shake the feeling that I’d love to have all his products as hardcovers in my bookshelf.
Update: My review of Spears of the Dawn.
