Jim Fireprincess Made me Get Up Early



So I got up at 6:30 today so I could get my Grindhouse Edition/Vornheim order in and hopefully be one of the first 100, so I could get the free extra rulebook. I don't normally get up until more like 8:30, so this is definitely a testament to the good job Jim Fireprincess has done in building the anticipation around these new releases. The offer of a free extra rulebook is what got me to order the thing from his store and pay shipping from Europe rather than just waiting until Troll & Toad got it or something. You see, my players are cheap fuckers, and never buy anything except for perhaps some minis once in a while. I like the idea of having a separate rulebook for them so they can keep their grubby little hands off my shit.

While I was there, I got the LotFP fighter t-shirt and the flailceratops t-shirt too, because they are just awesome. Luckily, my birthday is on Tuesday, so this is my birthday present.

I just spent some time flipping through the Grindhouse PDF, and all I can say is WOW! It's a big improvement over the first iteration from a layout perspective, and the art is just AWESOME. I didn't even buy it because of the art (or hype about it). After seeing the art, some of which literally made me put my hand over my mouth and gasp out loud, I feel a lot better about having just dropped $120 on this stuff.

So here's to wishing great success to James Raggi IV! I know he poured his heart and soul into these products, and it shows. Now give us more adventures!!!!!!
