FOUR Kickstarters I recently became aware of.
1. My favorite Wargame of all time is back with a Vengeance, that's right, Mutant Chronicles based WarZone is back with WarZone Resurrection!! Using 3D graphics to produce the new miniatures, so far the models are gorgeous!!! Cybertronic has always been my favorite..,
Green Ronin is making a new MEGA version of the Freeport campaign setting, a FIVE HUNDRED AND TWELVE page book!! Check it out!
Avast ye, mates! I have a tale to tell. It's a story of pirates, thieves, merchants, sailors, swashbucklers, cultists, and the place they call home: Freeport: The City of Adventure!
At GenCon 2000 the Third Edition D&D Player’s Handbook debuted and launched the d20 era. On that day, WotC had no adventures or support material to sell, but thanks to a new-fangled thing called the Open Game License there was something else you could buy that day: a 32-page module called Death in Freeport from a young company called Green Ronin Publishing. We and Atlas Games were the only companies at GenCon to make the leap of faith required and see if D&D players would buy from third party publishers. And did they ever! Death in Freeport was huge hit, and two further modules followed quickly. That was the beginning of Freeport: The City of Adventure, and little did we know what a long life it would have.
Over the years there have been many Freeport books, and the city’s design made it easy to use in nearly any fantasy campaign setting. These last few years we've been concentrating on licensed games like Dragon Age and A Song of Ice and Fire Roleplaying, but Freeport was never far from our thoughts. We know there are tons of Freeport fans out there and we know that many of them graduated from Third Edition D&D to Paizo’s Pathfinder RPG. Thanks to the rise of Kickstarter, we now have a way of doing a new Freeport book the way we want to and that’s what this campaign is about.
We want to do a new edition of Freeport: The City of Adventure sourcebook that is bigger, meatier, and sexier than ever before. Our goal is for a 512-page full color hardback, with new locations, new NPCs, and a brand new adventure for low-level characters. The book will include full stats for the Pathfinder RPG, though it will also be easily usable with other games. Player-oriented rules support like classes, prestige classes, feats, and spells will also be available in a Player’s Guide to Freeport PDF. Is this a lot of work? Damn right it is, but we’re getting a little help from our friends: Fiery Dragon! If you were around during d20’s heyday, Fiery Dragon needs no introduction. They burst onto to the scene with NeMoran’s Vault and went on to join Swords & Sorcery Studio and to publish Iron Heroes. We've made a deal with our good friends at FD to help us on Freeport: The City of Adventure Third Edition. They will put the book together under the guidance of Freeport creator Chris Pramas. They've done some great adventures over the years, so we’re excited to see what they can do with Freeport!
Our goal for this Kickstarter is high at $50,000 but there are good reasons for that. For one thing, we’re going to be commissioning an enormous amount of brand new color art and a new cover painting. For another, printing a 512-page hardback is not a cheap undertaking. We've always had to do Freeport on a strict budget before. This time we want it to be the total package!
So strap on your cutlass and get ready to cast off for Freeport: The City of Adventure! We need a big crew to make this happen, so spread the word like a drunk sailor in dockside bar!
Oh man, sexy WWII Cthulhu in Savage Worlds!!! In addition, they did some collaboration to create a Crossover with Interface Zero. Great addition if you like Rippers, Realms of Cthulhu, Day after Ragnarok or Weird War II...
The last bit of interesting goodness. The Guys from Adventure-a-week bring forth Rise of the Drow Adventure Path.
