The Lost Mountain Saga by Free League Publishing
  • SYSTEM: Vaesen - Nordic Horror Roleplaying
  • PRODUCT TYPE: hardcover adventures supplement
  • RETAIL PRICE: $39.99
  • DESCRIPTION: An epic campaign of five mysteries. Mysterious accidents plague the Swedish mining town of Falun, and a pious man takes it upon himself to get to the bottom of the problem via the PCs. The PCs hear alarming reports that the Asylum in Upsala is getting overcrowded due to an unexplained uptick in admitted patients. An island off the coast of northern Norway is in distress, and the authorities hire the PCs to discover the truth. The ancient spring celebration of Valborg is close, but within the surrounding forests of the celebration, secrets are waiting to be uncovered. An ancient stone has been discovered in the dark caves of the Abisko region in the north of Sweden. Exploitation soon begins with little regard for potential risks or consequences and the PCs are pulled into the middle of the mess. Written by actor and podcaster Ellinor Dilorenzo and based on her original podcast with the same name but expanded and modified for official RPG release.

Project Bayern by Mongoose Publishing
  • SYSTEM: Traveller 2300AD
  • PRODUCT TYPE: box set of four softcover books and a poster map
  • RETAIL PRICE: 99.99
  • DESCRIPTION: In four softcover books, this box set contains all the data needed to run an ongoing campaign of adventures based around the monumental voyage of the Bayern. The starship Bayern leaves human space to cross more than 450 light-years of unexplored territory before reaching the Pleiades star cluster in the constellation of Taurus. Details on the ship and its auxiliary vessels are included, background information on the Astronomischen Rechen-lnstitut, biographical information on the flight crew and heads of the scientific team which can be used as ready-made PCs or NPCs. A section on the Pleiades provides astrophysical information on the star cluster which have long been a source of wonder and inspiration to humans who observed them in the fall and winter skies of Earth. A giant poster map depicts the many decks of the Bayern on one side and a star chart of the Pleiades on the other. I have this massive box and the two sets of rules needed to run it. It is an entire in depth campaign of scientific discovery and exciting but dangerous exploration.

Is the Commandroids game to the official Transformers RPG what GoBots are to the Transformers themselves? ;)

I have the Transformers RPG from Renegade . . . haven't played it yet . . . but it seems like a fun game and system. Plus it already has several supplements out already.
 

I'm glad Commandroids is getting a printing. Played it years back at a convention. The price made me check the page count, which turns out to be pretty robust. Not an immediate pick up but could definitely end up on my Xmas list.

Not every NPC or building is fleshed out. There are plenty of blanks in Harn stuff.
Oh. I thought that one of the selling points was that every building was detailed.

This Kickstarter page is vaguer than I remember on how many buildings have their locks and contents of their room spelled out. The main Columbia Games website also seems to mostly exist for people who already known Harn, because pages like this aren't terribly helpful.

There is a lot of development, but it still allows GM freedom to make it their own. I agree that we website is in desperate need of improvement, but they are a small family business. I use this link to look at products.

Harn interview

This might help some, but yes the level of detail is hard to completely explain in a short web page.
