I'm honestly happy he is writing again. I did take a look on the Blue Hall of Illumination and was surprised to see him on the podcast and behind the Excellent Travelling Volume zine, and always wondered why he wasn't putting up articles on grognardia anymore. And was just surprised as everyone else when my blog feed showed a new article.Mork Borg even got JMal to revive Grognardia after how long (?) of a break to post a review. I wonder if this means he'll return to semi-regular posting again.
I'm not so sure. First comments at one of the other forums was some butt hurt about the infamous kickstarter and how his first post should have been some kind of apology. I can totally get why he'd be gun shy with opening the site for comments.James went on an eight year hiatus. Too bad he doesn't allow new comments. I don't think there would be many people slagging him.
Yeah just waiting for it to show up on Amazon.ca again so I can get it without paying crazy extra for shipping. I showed it to my wife who isn't really a gamer, and she was impressed by the style.Don't think, just buy the hard copy. I buy vanishingly few books in hard copy, but I've never had any reason to regret shelling out for MB. Just do it!
I find the monsters, dungeons, tools, etc. more engaging than the system. Nothing the matter with the system though.Yeah just waiting for it to show up on Amazon.ca again so I can get it without paying crazy extra for shipping.

For what it's worth, I don't really care too much about the system itself (I've got so many OSR-inspired games, like Black Hack, White Hack, Into the Odd etc...) but because it is so EASY to use with those other systems, it is on my radar.
Well, there’s a location that strongly reminds me of a themed Candlemass album called King of the Grey Islands...I was into doom metal back in the day: does anyone know how the game connects to doom metal (is it in the aesthetics or is there some other tie in to it?)
I haven't played the game yet, but I've mined it for ideas (both thematically and practically, using the provided random tables).Has anyone here played, and have a review of it?
I personally don't have any OSR in my RPG collection but something about this calls to me, even though I'm not a metal fan.
