Anyone play Amazing Adventures???

Jason Vey (Grey Elf) wrote a pulp RPG called Amazing Adventures a few years ago that uses the Castles & Crusades SIEGE engine that got published in 2012. There is now a kickstarter to get the game in hardcover. It's a pulp era (Indy Jones, Doc Savage, The Mummy, etc), and while I have played a bunch of those, I have never found "The One!" the works best with my GM style.

I've read the reviews on RPG.net and it sounds compelling, but I am not completely sold yet.

If you've played Amazing Adventures, I would LOVE to hear the pros and cons of this pulp RPG versus the rest of the lot.

Just for comparison, I loved Adventure! as a player (not as a GM though), didn't grok to Spirit of the Century, didn't enjoy Pulp D20, and felt the original Indiana Jones RPG was hit & miss. I do like C&C and I own the original core books, but rarely have played it (S&W:WB is my go-to D&D).

Also, if you have any links to Actual Play reports, that would rock!

Thank you in advance!

Sorry. I can tell you about my opinions of alt of other pulp games, including Cortex+ hack, but I don't know anything about Amazing Adventures.

I haven't played it, but reading through it, it looks very nicely done, as long as you're interested in playing classic D&D style rules in a pulp setting - classes, levels, etc. I believe it's been well received, but you might want to check the TLG forums for more opinions.

Hey, all, I don't often post here anymore, but when someone summons me, I appear. Like Hastur. Or Nyarlathotep.

Anyway, Spinachcat, I tried to answer some of your specific questions over at TheRPGSite, but they seemed a bit more publisher-centric than game-centric. Here's an article I did about the kickstarter for Bleeding Cool. Hopefully it can answer some questions about what it is, how it plays, what the revision will contain, etc.

Today is the last day for the kickstarter. If you haven't checked it out yet, I hope you will. This is a nice system and the stretch goals are pretty good.
