Time & again I see reminders today that the Kickstarter for Jeffrey Talanian's Hyperborea Otherworldly Tales modules is winding down with only four days to go. So if you wanna get in on the action then by all means dive into that Astonishing Swordsmen & Sorcerers of Hyperborea rpg second rpg kickstarter goodness edition action. These various blog posts & whatnot don't actually get into the modules at all. Let's start with the Lost Treasure of Atlantis right outta the gate; "The Lost Treasure of Atlantis, by , is an adventure in designed for from four to six characters of 6th through 8th level." This statement tells me volumes of information from the fact that this is a mid range adventure perfect for more experienced adventurers on the world of Hyperborea.
"In the far reaches of Hyperborea’s Crab Archipelago lies a small, mountainous island known as Crystal Point. Passing sailors recently have witnessed a crimson glow in Crystal Point’s waters and beams of russet light shining up from its steep cliffs. Too, unusually frequent lightning storms in the area have torn the sky in blinding flashes, shattering the air with their awesome sound. The seedy wharf taverns of Khromarium and elsewhere buzz with these strange tales—some even speculate that Crystal Point may hold the lost treasure of Atlantis! "
Knowing the influences of AS&SH as I do I'd say that there is a high probability that this module is going to have a huge influence of Clark Ashton Smith & Robert J Howard within.
If "The Lost Treasure of Atlantis, by , is going to continue in the wake of other AS&SH modules of the past then we'll see even more details added into the world & setting of Hyperborea. And we may get some of the answers that AS&SH dungeon masters have been seeking about the fate of Atlantis & its relics in the game.
