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.
