      I knew it was happening, but... That author list... Holy Crap.

      Any more writers and you'd have give them sub-chapters. I'm interested in seeing how they dealt with the science fantasy in the mechanics section.

      I don't know if I'll get to play it, but I will definitely read it for entertainment.

      Half the names didn't ring any bells. Why are some of those holy crap names?

      And no Ed Greenwood? Does he charge too much? Usually is he in this sort of thing. Or he is outdated?

      Fourteen authors for a 96 page book seems a lot - I wonder if they all worked directly on it or if some of the credits are mechanics sections originally from other products?

      Oh it's an adventure series rather than a campaign setting, that probably explains it.

      Holy crap. That is an all-star line-up. 96-pages is pretty short for a setting product.

      Leonard Balsera - Evil Hat Productions, Dresden Files RPG, Spirit of the Century
      Logan Bonner - Tons of WotC and Paizo writing credits
      Matt Forbeck - Eberron Novels, Marvel Comics stuff, too much to name for 25 years
      Will Hindmarch - Tons of White Wolf, Atlas Games, and Fantasy Flight Games writing credits
      Nicole Lindroos & Chris Pramas - owners of Green Ronin Publishing, the company who's publishing this (also heavy duty authors themselves)
      Robert J. Schwalb Warhammer FRP, WotC, bunch of other weiting credits
      Mike Selinker - RPG writer and creator of the Pathfinder Adventure Card game that's super hot right now

      So, yeah, Holy Crap.

      Actually Ray Winniger was the name that stood out to me. His Dungeoncraft articles in Dragon Magazine influenced my games and settings as much as any other single D&D book/source.
      Great to see him involved again (or well, at least since I have seen his name on products - I am sure he has been doing something).

      Sorry - once I was toward the bottom of the list I started running out of steam describing accomplishments.

      I agree about that author list, Henry; it blew me away! Ray Winniger also did a lot of editing work for various companies and, as noted, his Dungeoncraft articles are considered classics by a lot of people.

      No wonder Project: Dark is ten months overdue. I'm pretty patient, but it's difficult to see Hindmarch doing all sorts of other projects when he took a hefty chunk of Kickstarter money and has, until now, failed to deliver.

      Pretty sure it says 144 pages up there, or was it edited?

      The Fantasy AGE book is 144. The Titan's Grave is 96.

      I'm intrigued with Fantasy Age's system. It looks like the right number of crunch for my group.

      The book is largely focused on the adventures from the show and the aspects of the setting that enable them. It's not a comprehensive worldbook, though that could come afterward. The authors credited for the material in the book also contributed material for the filming of the Ashes of Valkana web show, some of which either isn't included in the episodes or didn't get filmed at all for logistical reasons (there were about four hours of gameplay filmed for each of the 40 minute episodes) so it'll be new and "bonus" material even if people have seen the series.

      Yes, you're right. Reading Comprehension Fail on my part.
