Advanced Labyrinth Lord is finally on Kickstarter

He's been thinking about it for years, but too busy with his Pacesetter stuff and monkey-RPG. But he finally went with it

After a day, it's funded.

Unlike the AEC companion, which was an add on to the basic Labyinrth Lord rules (mimicking the Basic and Expert set) that provided 1e AD&D options like AD&D classes and races not as classes, this will be one simple coherent product for $30 in hardcover.  

Correction (thanks to James Mishler for pointing this out), it's $30 plus the cost of printing and shipping from DTRPG. So probably closer to $50 (figure 15 for printing and another $5 for shipping, which might still be lowballing) and maybe a better deal to just buy the 1e books on ebay.

The Kickstarter is also offering a hardback version of Realms of Crawling Chaos, his book on Lovecraftian D&D (which is for both regular and advanced LL). I reviewed it ages ago and am too tired from work to link to it, but it's solid, though not spectacular. Probably wouldn't pay the $25 for it, and again, it's plus probably another $10-15 buch, so probably $40 or so.

I participated in one of his previous Kickstarters (for Starships & Spacemen 2e) and it went well. When I couldn't use the DTRPG link (because back then it didn't work with my crappy ISP, the book marking would go in an endless loop), he emailed me a copy. And the print version was nice (though at $40 and 88 pages, a little pricey, this is much better deal all around)
