Well, the Year of New Editions has now tied in with one of my absolute favorite movies (I’ve read the book, but it was a looooong time ago. The movie, however, I’ll watch once every couple months). For those that don’t know of The Adventures of Baron Munchausen, I’m truly sorry, for you are missing out on one of the greatest adventure tales of all time. For those that do know of it, you’ll be happy to know that a 3rd edition of the roleplaying game will be out later this year.
In the game, players recount their most fantastic adventures (that are entirely true, of course, no matter how fanciful they may seem. The Baron and his cohorts never lie). This version contains three versions of the game. The first is where you play the game in the “classic sense,” talking about your adventures across the globe in the Baron’s time. The second, you travel to the time of Es-Sindibad in order to recount your tales. The third flings you farther afield, letting you tell tales in places such as R’lyeh and galaxies far, far away.
The new edition will be available in the 4th quarter of this year.
Editor’s note: You really should go read the whole article. It’s masterfully done in the fine art of the original The Adventures of Baron Munchausen.
