Just sent an e-mail to Bill to find out for you.

Mike, this is a FANTASTIC adventure. I think you hit it out of the park. This is the AP I've been waiting for ever since I first read Expedition to Barrier Peaks 30 years ago, and it has not disappointed. However, I think you have done an excellent job in particular of capturing the weird horror of the Dominion of the Black and Lovecraft elements...and still making them feel different from each other. I just wanted to chime in and add my kudos. Did I mention I really like it. :-)

Hey Greg, just so y'all know- some folks are trippin' over in the 'comments' section for the Quests of Doom KS... I guess they never heard of using e-mail.

Thanks Changing Man. I'll ping Bill.

Pathfinder Creative Director, Frog God Games

Of course, we do! ;-)

I wasn't aware of us saying that before and can't imagine why we would, but I've forwarded this thread to Bill so he can give the official business response instead of my wild guesses. :-)

Pathfinder Creative Director, Frog God Games

I'll let Bill know about the questions I can't answer so he can chime in, but I can answer that when you buy a hardcover from us you always get the pdf for free. I honestly can't think of a single example where that hasn't been true, but I know it's true for this.

I have a question for the Necromantic Frogs related to the Quests of Doom KS & Backerkit:

I wasn't able (due to lack of funds) to add on the Book of Lost Spells during the KS, but I see I can do that now via Backerkit. Would there be any way to also toss in a hardcopy of Stoneheart Valley to my 'order', and have these all shipped together (to save on postage)?

I'm positive there is. Shoot Bill an e-mail and he can tell you how to do it.

This. They are mostly but not all demon lords. There are some other...things mixed in, including some gods, but I don't want to give away of my secretses. :-) But, yeah, mostly demon lords, several of which can be found in TOHC.

Baphomet, Dagon, Fraz-Urb Luu, Jubilex, Kostchie, Orcus, Pazuzu, Tsathogga.

Oinodaemon.

Hel. Set. Tiamat. Ereshkegal/Nergal.

That is if I were to pick from the Necromancer Game sourcebooks I've got and that my memory is right that Hel is in that original NG gods pdf and that Ereshkegal/Nergal are in the Mesopotamian adventures one along with Tiamt.

I may need to check if ToH4 had any demon lords.

Servitors like Mastiphal, Sonechard, Vepar, and Beluiri I do not expect to have cults of their own outside of those of their masters.

A bunch of the demon lords exist on Golarion so there is some crossover potential for Paizo APs like Reign of Winter and Wrath of the Righteous even though bestial Baphomet

is a different take than lean maze insane Baphomet.

I really want someone to run with Fraz-Urb Luu though in all his illusionary glory.

I think you're going to be very happy, Voadam.

I think those are the main ones (all I can remember off the top of my head anyway). Basically everything between Endhome and the Forlorn Mountains. It also includes a complete history of the region going back thousands of years plus a description of all the local ethnic groups.

It also includes a chapter of write-ups on 13 evil cults plus gives some information on a few more. Not gonna' tell which cults they are though. ;-)
(However, Orcus and Tsathogga are a good bet for two of them, just 'cause).

I'm real interested in this gazetteer. All 13 are demon lords from TOH? Demon lords plus other fiend lords (archdevils), or demon lords and other fiend lords and evil gods (Set)?

When is the kickstarter slated for?

Sorry, I had announced it elsewhere but didn't realize that I hadn't here. Wasn't actually trying to keep it a secret. :-) The complete lineup for Cults of the Sundered Kingdoms AP is:

Beasts Among Us
Morrick Mansion
Shades of Yellow
Aberrations
Vengeance in the Hollow Hills
Crystal Skull

Goes from levels 3-12+ (I'd guess 14th or 15th if the players clear out Crystal Skull)

Any chance of a compiled Splinters of Faith at some point? I think it's a very under-rated set of adventures, and it pretty easily forms a loose trilogy with Slumbering Tsar and Rappan Athuk.

Edit: and I'd love to see some more Saturday Night Specials or One Night Stands. I know that the big epic adventures you guys do tend to generate the most buzz, but I'm just as much of a fan of some of the shorter works as well. While I'm aware that it existed before FGG (even with a much better cover), Spire of Iron and Crystal is one of my favorite adventures you guys have published.

Kthulhu, sorry I didn't see this before now. There is definitely a chance for a compiled Splinters at some point, though it'll probably be awhile yet. And you say under-rated, but Splinters was actually one of our best sellers early on, so it seemed pretty well appreciated. It just kind of quietly kept selling and selling. That said, I get what you mean. It never had a ton of buzz around it which made its excellent sales that much cooler. But, yeah, we like it a lot and will likely give it a bigger treatment at some time in the future. It came up in a conference call we had today in fact.

ONS and SNS are on hiatus for the time being. Despite being some really cool small adventures, many by noted authors in the industry, they have never sold very well. One of the reasons we're doing the big Northlands Saga Complete book is because the awesome little adventures Kenneth Spencer was writing for us (we released 4 of them), never amounted to much in sales. He had all this material but basically wasn't getting paid much of anything to write it. So we're rebooting that with a HUGE book to encompass ALL of his original material and we'll Kickstart it to make sure we've got the necessary funding to make it go and actually put some money in Ken's pocket for all his hard work.

As for ONS and SNS, we're weighing options on those things. Some of the older ones will likely get incorporated into larger works at some point. Of the many unpublished adventures that we have (we never printed them due to the low sales), we're looking at ways to incorporate them into larger projects as well so that they can see the light of day and not go unnoticed below the radar.

An example of how we will incorporate previous stuff in larger works is our upcoming Cults of the Sundered Kingdoms. It will include an update of three old Necromancer Games adventures along with three brand new adventures that incorporate them into a cohesive adventure path plus an exhaustive gazetteer of the region that was introduced with the region map we published with Barakus. The whole thing is something over 300,000 words, so it's going to be a BIG book with a lot of cool stuff in it that details a nice chunk of the Lost Lands campaign setting.

Looking forward to Fields of Blood.

I wonder if a Tome of Horror V is on the horizon for next year. Not enough big monster books. ;-)

Tome of Horrors 5 is in the cards but probably not next year. Unfortunately, despite the clamor we receive for big monster books, TOH4 did not sell all that well. So we'll probably put some space in between the monster book releases to avoid any kind of market fatigue. We're just not big enough to sustain losses on very many books before it starts to hit our production capabilities. In the meantime, we've still got a lot of Tome of Horrors 4 available. ;-) Probably a couple of years before we do Tome 5 unless demand suddenly picks up dramatically.

Been reading through Dunes of Desolation. Awesome job Tom. The amount of material and detail is fantastic. This puts Glades and Dead Man's Chest to shame. It was amusing to see a creature that can neuter your character. ;-)

Also the art for the monsters was well done. I notice some FGG products get monster art and some don't.

When the next book coming out?

Hi lastgrasp. As Tom mentioned, Fields of Blood is currently in development. I would guess it will be released somewhere in the time frame of our upcoming Cults of the Sundered Kingdoms KS much as Dunes of Desolation came out with our Barakus KS (I think, it was either that or the Sword of Air KS, can't remember which one). Anyway, early 2015 is the right idea.

As much as i would love to back it my money is tight at the mo. I'm saving it for the Northlands Saga. Is there any news on this Bill? I thought I heard it mentioned that it might be a fall kickstarter? or has this now gone on to next years schedule now?

Hi Simon,

Our next KS is going to be Cults of the Sundered Kingdoms. However, we've got to get our current Kickstarters fulfilled before we start our next. Northlands should be early in 2015. It's going to be big though. The last couple adventures in the Northlands AP are still being written, but the first 9 adventures in it are done as is the campaign guide. I'm glad you're excited about, cuz it's going to be pretty cool. :-)

Also, consider that he isn't really doing anything wrong. His presence stabilizes and protects The Camp. It's like killing a town's mayor just because he's evil or a hobgoblin or something.

Well, two-thirds of it were actually co-written by a combination of the Rand Corporation, the Queen of England, and the Bilderberg Conference. So there's that. Not sure what to do about the extra third now, though.

"The Lost Lands" (although I am hardpressed to find a world guide per se)

Peace.

Dave N.

Hi Dave! that's because we haven't released the world guide yet. We've approached it by releasing a number of adventures and regional maps to let folks start piecing it (and their old Necromancer Games adventures) together into a cohesive whole while we reveal things a chunk at a time, showing connections between points A and B that they never knew existed or had only been hinted at in older products. The world guide is actually scheduled for 2015 with several products releasing more big chunks and the adventures set in them between now and then.

I'm glad you thought of us, though, and hope you'll stick around for when the world guide is released and the big picture is finally revealed.

Greg

P.S. Just as an FYI, we're not just trying to be coy and tease people along by doing it this way. It's just that we're not only releasing new products but tying together about 50 or so old Necromancer Games products into a cohesive whole. The rough stitching has been done (we know what everything looks like and how it all fits together) and much of the world guide is written or at least in note form, it just takes a lot of work to write up how all the pieces fit together and keep our new products moving at the same time. So we're just moving kinda' slow.

Glad you're liking them, Gerald. The Dunes adventures are all courtesy of Tom Knauss and the development work of John Ling. We're in the final development stages on his next environments book for a Plains environment called Fields of Blood. And it's got another trio of Tom Knauss classics in it. As you can probably tell, at Frog God we love adventures. :-)

Pathfinder Creative Director, Frog God Games

What Chuck said. We had already commissioned the six additional adventures and wanted to produce them. If a stretch goal isn't reached and hasn't been written, we probably will not generally go ahead and produce it, because it becomes a financial risk at that point. But in this case we had to go ahead and get all of them done before all the writers got busy on other projects, so we had the stuff done and didn't want it to go to waste.

We're glad you added it and like that we did that. We want to get as much as we can into the hands of our fans. The more you guys buy, the more new stuff we can do. From just trying to get Slumbering Tsar into print when we started out initially, we've actually managed to cobble together a considerable amount of a game world, and we aim to keep going with it as long as you guys are interested in Lost Lands products. Thanks! :-)

Finished reviewing Ed Greenwood's adventure for Giants and Dragons over the weekend. I won't spoil it by telling you what it's about (hint: there are lots of smurfs), but it was very reminiscent to me of the early FR type of encounters. It particularly reminded me of the feel of the side encounters that were included in the original Undermountain boxed set (i.e. the encounters that took place outside Undermountain).

Anyway, in regards to some folks asking for more information about where the various adventures will be located in the Lost Lands, I thought I'd start out with this one.

"Emeralds of Highfang" takes place in the Forlorn Mountains. For those of you familiar with some old Necromancer products and/or our recent Sinnar Coast Region map that was released with Barakus, you'll recognize the Forlorn Mountains as being the mountain range north of the Domain of Hawkmoon and west of the Duchy of Southvale. Of note, the Forlorn Mountains are known for their central region that is referred to as The Giantlands..not that that would have anything to do with THIS adventure or anything... :-)

Darkholme, she's referring to the Lost Lands setting where all of our adventures are located. You can check us out here for more info if you're interested. We do all of them for Pathfinder rules and Swords & Wizardry rules (a different book for each version) and have now branched out into 5e through Necromancer Games.

So out of curiosity, will the Hawkmoon adventures and area be out any time soon? And yes I pledged, on this one not the other one!

We've got some stuff before it to do, but it's tentatively being looked at to start development for late 2015/early 2016. It's going to take some work both because it's a lot of material (What Evil Lurks, Lamentation of Thieves, Bonegarden, Elemental Moon, and "Them Bones" from Raise the Dead, plus, honestly, a lot of the stuff from Dead Man's Chest ties directly to it) and because its going to be a strong tie-in the Razor Coast, so there's going to be a/some bridging adventure(s). We'll have to do some sorting and figuring, plus see what interest if any Lance has on revisiting his earlier material, so it'll be awhile yet.

What level are the adventures? Are they tied together in any way or are they just standalone?

Just as an FYI for later on this fall, our next book release will be Cults of the Sundered Kingdoms which include not only a gazetteer of a good portion of the Sinnar Coast region (the poster map with the prior Barakus KS) but also an AP for levels 4-13.

It'll include updates of the three classic Necro adventures Morrick Mansion, Aberrations, and Crystal Skull (a less-known gem) as well as the addition of the three new adventures Beasts Among Us, Shades of Yellow, and Vengeance in the Hollow Hills. The gazetteer will feature the regions/kingdoms/areas that make up the Sundered Kingdoms and consist of:
The Matagost Peninsula
Ramthion Island
The Duchy of Southvale
Old Burgundia
Lowport
The District of Sunderland
Kildren Point
The Wildlands
The Giantlands

Basically everything south of Endhome and north of Hawkmoon (and east of the Trader's Road).

It will also include a chapter detailing the 13 demonic cults that have great influence in the entire area.

But that is a another story...

Greetings all, the Big Frog just poked me out of my usual stupor to point out a new Kickstarter that Frog God has just...kickstarted.

A new Kickstarter?!?! you say. Didn't you guys just finish one yesterday? Well, yes, thank you for asking, we did. Actually it's the fault of that KS that we're having this KS. Personally I blame 5e (Ooohhhh, edition-warring! Bring on the flames and trolls and flaming trolls!). No seriously, it's the other KS's fault, and it was a success.

See in that KS as Necromancer Games entered the world of 5e (with the blessing of all the Frogs-That-Be), the KS included a book of up to 18 adventures called Quests of Doom. It included conversions of the old Necromancer Games 3.0 classics Demons and Devils and Liches and Vampires (6 adventures altogether written by Bill, Casey Christofferson, and Clark Peterson) plus up to another 12 all new adventures. We got folks like Steve Winter, Ed Greenwood, Jim Ward, Casey Christofferson, Skip Williams, Michael Curtis, Matt Finch, Jim Collura, and some schlub named Bill Webb to write them. The KS was a success but 6 of the new adventures didn't get unlocked as stretch goals. The problem was that we went ahead and had all of the new adventures written with nothing to do with them.

Our problem becomes your good news, though. During the course of the KS we had sent a survey to all Froggie fans and asked if there was any interest in converting those old adventures along with the new adventures to PF and/or Swords & Wizardry. The answer was a resounding YES!!

So that brings us here. We're taking all 18 of the adventures and dishing them up in a mega-adventure book called Quests of Doom with versions for Pathfinder and Swords & Wizardry (yes, I know technically there are only 12 new adventures and 6 updates, but they're new to PF and S&W, gimme a break). We're still working out the logistics of getting those last six adventures to the new 5e fans, but that's not part of this PF and S&W KS.

That's where we are. I will be doing development on all the adventures to make sure that they fit seamlessly into our Lost Lands campaign setting, and all 18 will be a canon part of that setting.

So head on over to the Kickstarter and be the first* to Kickstart this Kickstarter in its Kickstarting!

*You will probably not actually be able to be the first.

Hi Matrix,
