    My DM is very into Matt Colville, so I intentionally avoid it so that he can use ideas and mechanics that I'm not already fully steeped in.

    Yea I totally agree. Hard pass.

    In my homebrew campaign my players have been building a little fiefdom with a keep and small town plus named NPCs since level 5. Saw the followers thing when they were about level 9 and paid for it thinking at worst I could just steal the good parts and port it over to my campaign.

    Found that it was so entrenched in it's own rules for how MC envisioned strongholds that I could barely use any of it. Seriously disappointed in it. Wasnt a big MC fan before and now solidly in the camp of "meh"

    Man, I'm sorry you guys had that experience. I found it really added a great dimension to my games. What were you running into problems with? Maybe I missed something.

    IMO he has a very specific idea of how to run a campaign that I hate. I didn't buy his last offering because I watched his video and didn't like the magical buffs idea for one example. It's fine that he plays the way he does. It's fine that thousands or even millions of players like his style. I dont belong at his table and his style of gaming doesn't belong at mine.

    Exclamation Path of the Wilds Kickstarter ends soon! Help us make this project a reality!

    The Kickstarter for Path of the Wilds, Ascension Game's new book for Pathfinder 1st edition, is ending soon! CLICK HERE to support the project!


    Call up those high-level clerics, because we're in need of a miracle! The project still has a long way to go, and we need your help now more than ever. With your generosity and the aid of your tabletop group, we can make this project come to life.

    You might be thinking, "Well, with how much is left before reaching the goal, should I even back the project?" To which I say, Kickstarter projects only charge you if the goal is met. If you are interested in Path of the Wilds, even if you think the project might not make its funding goal, please consider backing! If everyone that was hesitant to back the project for fear of the goal not being met actually did back the project, we'd hit our funding goal in no time at all. Every bit helps!

    There's a playtest document you can read on Google Docs, or you can download directly from DriveThruRPG, Paizo.com, or the Ascension Games store if you'd like to look at the content before backing.

    If you missed any of our updates, you can check them out on the Ascension Games website:


    Thank you for your continued support!

    The latest thing that I've backed.

    Thorn: City of Kings

    Spoiler: Description
    Show

    Thorn is an ancient city-state, a great city-state, a towering testament to centuries of rule. It is also the last city-state of its kind. Pharaohs and senators come and go. Dynasties fade. But power and wealth remain constants in the city-state of Thorn. People come from throughout the Empire to gaze upon Thorn’s perfectly etched stone walls and the mosaics of the gods, to hear great celebrities perform, to behold the excitement of the chariot races, and to witness the Pharaoh herself.

    Today, a new Pharaoh reigns over the city-state, replacing a disgraced leader hidden in exile, who drove Thorn to the edge of ruin. Although the new Pharaoh intends to return the great city to the splendor of its golden age, this past year has seen obstruction from the Senate, resulting in societal decline. People live in poverty, Thorn’s borders shrink, and the military flounders, all while foreign missionaries lure the Kisharan faithful away from the old gods.

    For the common citizen of Thorn, the passing days are measured in strife as the city-state struggles to recover from the misguided rule of a selfish Pharaoh. The wealthy of Thorn rise above such suffering, insulated in equal measure by both money and power, though they face their own trials as they struggle to hold onto such things. Life in Thorn is currently comfortable for no one.

    In a constant state of flux, Thorn itself is eternal — it has weathered political upheaval, natural disasters, wars, and more. And when the dust clears again, it will remain. So long as the people believe this, there is little need to correct its drifting course.

    Thorn is a place of power and status, and both have a way of keeping a tower stable.

    Or knock is all down like a house of cards.

    “The Pharaoh is dead. Long live the eternal state of Thorn. Usher in the living gods.”

    Thorn is a complex city, filled with numerous paths to adventure. And as clichéd as that sounds, the hope is this is not just another fantasy roleplaying game. Thorn exists during the tumultuous Late Bronze Age, when civilizations are on the precipice of collapse and all the great cities of the world are about to crumble into oblivion. All at once.

    But somehow, Thorn endures.

    Players take on the role of adventurers trying to escape the hardship of life outside Thorn, and make a living for themselves inside the walls of the world’s greatest city. Here, power is those brave enough to take it, but also maintain it, while cultists and demons tear at the very foundation of the city.
    It is one thing to suspend your disbelief. It is another thing entirely to hang it by the neck until dead.

    Verisimilitude -- n, the appearance or semblance of truth, likelihood, or probability.

    The concern is not realism in speculative fiction, but rather the sense that a setting or story could be real, fostered by internal consistency and coherence.

    Forgot to post a note about this:

    https://www.kickstarter.com/projects...16/description

    The 16th book of Schlock Mercenary has three days left on the Kickstarter, and is $1500 away from the stretch goal that unlocks a Planet Mercenary adventure PDF.

    Default 1668 Chipboard Monster Tokens from Game Mash KickStarter!

    https://www.kickstarter.com/projects...monster-tokens

    Help us get this Kickstarter off the ground. This forum has done it before so lets do it again!

    You're going to get 1668 high quality, pre-punched chipboard tokens. They are 1/2-inch, 1-inch, 2-inch and 3-inch tokens.

    This set of tokens will retail for $499. You can get them for $250. One and done. You'll never need another token.

    These same tokens (if magnetic) would cost you over $1200 on our gamemash.com website.

    Thank you for everything you have done for us, our families, our friends and our games.

    Hero Forge has a new kickstarter for color prints. Looks pretty cool, and they've already unlocked a lot of extra options.

    That said, I don't know that I'll back it. I don't think I do enough TTRPGing to really want to spend $40 for each mini. It's fun to play with, sure, and I'd love them to add hippo heads for Giff, but I just can't justify the cost.

    Imagine a Hogwarts analogue, wherein wizards learn their craft at a school of magic. Where that magic is ubiquitous and commonplace – brooms sweeping floors, flying carpet taxis, that sort of thing. And above all, where magic is truly wondrous, with impossible citadels and floating cities and the like.

    Such a society could do great things. Great, but also terrible.

    Evergarde is an RPG supplement targeted to 5E, but also supports older editions and OSR (Old School Renaissance) games. In Evergarde, magic is commonplace and wonderful, and juxtaposed against the gritty and dour tone of a post-apocalyptic world.

    It’s basically Harry Potter meets Fallout.

    For more information, check out the Kickstarter. Thanks for looking!

    Hi everyone!

    I'd just like to share my project Storybox!, a collection of 8 unique one-shot style TTRPGs. We managed to hit 100% funding in 8 hours and 300% in the first 24 - I've been blown away by the reception and thought some folks here might like to see it. I can't post a link because I made a new account to escape my deadname, but it's easily findable.
    I'm really excited to finally put these games out to the world!

    The Kickstarter for an upcoming supplement, Filling in the Blanks, is now live. It is a guide for populating maps with features and lairs for fantasy role-playing campaigns. While written for use with OSR-style games, with a focus on generating areas of interest for use in hexcrawl or sandbox-style games, it can easily be adapted to any version of D&D.

    The document has already been written and copy edited, and I've commissioned an artist to produce illustrations for it, so we're pretty close to having everything ready to go.

    https://www.kickstarter.com/projects...pulating-hexes

    6.28.20 The Kickstarter has funded completely, and as a reward I'm adding some stretch goals. For every 200.00 past my original goal I'll be including a brand new 6-mile hex in pdf form.

    7.5.20 With 19 days remaining we're 51.00 short of tripling our original goal for the Filling in the Blanks Kickstarter, a guide to populating maps for fantasy gaming. I've added some stretch goals for more art and some bonus hexes.

    8.26.20 And the pdf is live and available for sale! https://www.drivethrurpg.com/product...-in-the-Blanks

    Currently I am backing Guide to Kroma: A Fantasy Travel Guide. It aims to provide a small-scale introduction to a new fantasy campaign setting they are creating, along with a simple rule system for one-shots in their setting.

    I'm not familiar with any previous TTRPG project either of the authors have done, but they are each known for their webcomics Inhibit and Recoil, both of which I enjoy. Inhibit in particular has good world-building and a reasonably consistent set of rules for how powers work, so I'm pretty confident they can do a good job with the fluff of an RPG setting at least. Also, there was a Kickstarter for Inhibit book 1, which fulfilled in a timely manner.

    Whether the rules for their demo one-shot system will be any good is not something I can predict. Hopefully they're good, but that isn't really why I'm backing.

    Ladies, Gentlemen, Either or Neither, I would like to offer you Monsters of Murka: Restaurants & Retail, produced by Action Fiction.

    The Monster of Murka setting won awards on DriveThruRPG for it's hilarious parody/satire setting as well as just being a lot of damn good fun. Restaurants & Retail is their first expansion, detailing the hyper-capitalist culture that has turned the once-beautiful land of Murka into a nightmare of evil brands and monstrous enemies. (Did I mention it's satire?)

    Visit Flavour Town and meet the Flavour Saviour himself, Sir Guillaume Fierre! Get lost - and find unbeatable bargains! - in the endless labyrinth of Walmoria! Take a trip out to Midwesteros and spend some coin at the legendary Hall of Murka! Curses! Memes! Tasteful semi-nudity!

    ~*~

    Disclaimer!

    This setting is especially close to my heart because... I helped to write it!
    The AF team put out the call earlier this year for a motley band of writer/adventurers and they somehow ended up with me writing for the Walmoria dungeon. If you ever play the game and get run over by a Draggin' Wagon, fall afoul of the Exidoors or get consumed by It Which Clerks In The Darkness then I want you to know... I'm not sorry.

    With the exception of the 3 founding members, the AF writing team are almost exclusively first-timers at both professional writing and TTRPG development, so you're helping us cut our teeth and get an accredited product on our resumes. I promise, you wouldn't know from reading what we've done - Murka is completely insane, but it's distilled insanity and I really hope that you join us in enjoying it.

    The first Kickstarter for Sengai Jidai: The Age of A Thousand Realities is now live! 100 years ago, the reality shapers of the Oni Rebellion destroyed the ASHIKAGA supercomputer and shattered the consensus reality that governed Japan. Now there are a thousand different worlds across the land, from the cyberpunk dystopia of the Oda to the oath-bound samurai of the Azai, and even stranger worlds than these. In the Starter Kit you'll get four unique archetypes: the psychic shrine guardians of the Kanbe, Asakura artists who can bring their creations to life, Tendai monks who realize their bodies are not real, and thus can reshape or even abandon them, and the witches of the Matsudaira, who soar through the air on their flying brooms. These come with three new skills that can be used in any Fate game: Art, ESP, and Witchcraft.

    You'll also get a starting town, Kawagoe, that lies along the Tokkaido road and the sea. The town is full of the NPCs and locations you might find in anime from the 90s, like Sailor Moon or Serial Experiments: Lain. This is the setting for a new adventure for FATE, "The Unquiet Earth," where your characters must react to save citizens from a natural disaster and then fight off a kaiju attack.

    People who back early can take advantage of an early bird special to get their print copy of the Starter Kit for 75% of the normal price. You can sign up here to back the project.

    Also, as new stretch goals are unlocked, the book gets more valuable for the same price. Up to three new characters will be introduced, including a cyborg, a samurai, and a ninja. You'll also get more NPCs and locations, as well as two new adventures: "A Fistful of Yen," featuring criminals fighting over turf in the aftermath of the disaster, and "Avalanche," where tensions come to a head between the Oda and those who believe the kami are harmed by the pollution produced in the Oda shipyards. So back early, then tell all your friends to support the project!
