Honestly I don't have that much of an expendable income. This is the first RPG that I am actually going to play (tomorrow in fact). I own lots of RPG books that I have accumulated over the years that I have perused but never sat down to play. But for some reason BBF stood out for me. I stumbled across it a few days ago while browsing DriveThruRPG's top 20 Indie products listing.
I read the product description and it caught my attention. I immediately Googled up some reviews and was very impressed with what people were saying. I had $10 bucks in my pocket and took the plunge. I read the book cover to cover the next day and unlike just about every other product I have come across over the last four years, of on again off again pen and paper romancing, I felt compelled to play it. I had my wife read the book yesterday, we bought materials to build out own battle mat today, and tomorrow we are going to run Maidens of Moordoth.
I read that you will be releasing Trouble at Karam's Claim on Nov 12th along with the Keranak Kingdoms setting book. I also read you have some spell cards in the works for a DTRPG release. My wife gets paid tomorrow and I'll be setting some money aside to buy all three of these products. I guarantee you that if you release additional BBF P&P cards that I will snatch those up as well. I don't know what it is about this product but it has my complete attention.
Beyond reading every post made at these forums and tracking new ones daily, I'm compiling a list of all the player submitted content others are sharing. I hope that I have some affinity for the game once I get the ball rolling and will be able to make my own contributions. I am really digging the feel of a concerted community effort with bettering this game. It feels like it has future, a bright future full of both crunchy and fluffy goodness. I look forward to watching the game evolve and being a part of that process.
Keep up the great work and please, PLEASE, keep those new products rolling out. My income may be limited when it comes to recreational expenses, but both my wife and I are committed to supporting your hard work and future community contributions. I have found a winner in BareBones Fantasy. Coming from somebody like me, that is not a statement that should be taken lightly. Viva La BBF!
