Rumbles About Astonishing Swordsmen and Sorcerers of Hyberborea's "The Mystery at Port Greely" & Other AS&SH Adventures

So its 2016 and we're already seeing new material rumors for Astonishing Swordsmen and Sorcerers of Hyperborea. Everyone is excited about the release of Slave Lord series from Wizards of the Coast. I'm far more excited to see information coming out about Port Greely which is partially based on HP Lovecraft's Shadow over Innesmouth along with AS&SH author's twisted imaginations. There's brand new information on the AS&SH hard back as well; " What a fantastic milestone, and a nice way to ring in the new year. 2016 is going to be a great year for AS&SH. We will publish the hardcover edition of the game, with new classes, spells, monsters, and magic items; also, clarifications, errata cleaned up, and more! (Complete compatibility with boxed set edition, though.)

We've also got new adventures in the pipeline, including "The Mystery at Port Greely" (Talanian), "The Beasts of Kraggoth Manor" (Callahan), "The Anthropophagi of Xamboola" (Walden), and "The Sea-Wolf's Daughter" (Talanian). Happy New Year, fellows. I leave you with this fantastic illustration by Del Teigeler, one of several he is illustrating for "The Mystery at Port Greely."

So here's what's going on with the AS&SH  Adventure ,"The Mystery at Port Greely"

Until recently, the peculiar village of Port Greely was renowned as one of the most prolific exporters of crustaceans in the realm. Then, about three years ago, the Greely lobstermen severed all ties with outside partners. Subsequent attempts at renegotiation were shunned. More recently, a small group of Fishmongers’ Guild representatives from the City-State of Khromarium has gone missing in Port Greely, and answers have been less than forthcoming. At present, the guild seeks answers. They want to know what became of their representatives, and they wish to reestablish their lucrative partnership with the Port Greely lobstermen. Your party has been contracted to help resolve the mystery at Port Greely.
