Title: Horrors of War
Post by: PirateLawyer on October 01, 2014, 12:21:56 AM
So, who ended up pledging for an online game run by Scott Glancy from the kickstarter? We'll need to get organized for when those games are set up.

I'm in! Cannot wait to die in historically correct fashion or bite it from something from beyond!

In. We will all likely die, possibly multiple times, in highly historic fashion.

Answered the survey. I'm on PST. How about you two? We might have to talk with Glancy to see about logistics of being in the same group.

I'm hoping this gets scheduled sometime in November. Would prefer to play something that hasn't been previously released as an actual play.

Has anyone received an e-mail from Glancy regarding setting up these games?

I really wanted some Horrors of War actual play/sneak peek pdf for Christmas. Alas.

I might be talking to myself, but I wish ASG would post an update to Kickstarter about this book.

I expected the project to run well behind schedule, but an update would appease the masses methinks.

Still looking forward to the online game, whenever that might be.

Having been around for some of the Pagan Publishing run of the Unspeakable Oath I knew going in that I needed to be very unattached to schedule. I fully suspect delivery will occur at some point and the product will be very good otherwise I would not have backed but I try to have no expectations as to when.

Amen, brother. Only reason I posted again here was that some of the entitled masses over at the Kickstarter page were getting a bit frisky, and I figured posting here might get back to ASG through back channels, which it may have well have done, thanks to Ross. When I posted over there telling people to calm down, I got the expected caterwauling from the usual suspects.

We are currently tunneling our way into Adam Scott Glancy's house.  We are averaging four feet a day.  When we break through we will assault and retrieve the Horrors of War books for ourselves.  At night we listen for the sounds of counter-tunneling coming from Glancy's home office.  Sam says he sometimes hears whispers in between the scratching.

If there was a like button on these forums this would get the big thumbs up.

Now, I know there are less guns & cats in the Pagan Publishing bunker than there were a few months ago, but you really ought to consider the world of pain that you will be entering if you go through with your ill-conceived plan.

I agree, less do not mean a total absence of cats or guns.

Remember Ken Hite's anecdote about Pagan Haus, "It's like a frat house for serial killers."

I have to say, the conduct of this project has been sorely lacking. I compare this to Red Markets and Caleb deserves huge credit for clear communication and transparency; Glancy, not so much. I know I'll eventually enjoy the final product, and probably even the online game I pledged for whenever that actually gets organized, but I know my respect for ASG's professionalism has taken a hit. Just admit to those that funded the book about the elephant in the room: real life - whether it be family issues, writer's block, other projects - *cough Delta Green cough* - has gotten in the way of delivering the book.

I wouldn't say this over on Kickstarter where some are filing complaints to the FBI and demanding refunds, but I guess I needed to vent a little in this little online corner of our hobby.

Well that was a brave update. Best of luck to ASG and hopefully down the road the project gets back on the rails.

Yeah, that was pretty brave of him to share. I have much respect for ASG, and I kind of know where he is coming from.
