Over 900% of Kickstarter goal reached!
And boom goes the dynamite, and another threshold goal goes down. Less that $900 until the next threshold goal and with that we add custom icons and crest for the NeoExodus campaign setting empires and various powerful and influential organizations. After we reach that goal we go for the $12K threshold goal of NeoExodus Mythic PDF chapter written by Alex Augunas. With all these rewards you can see, nothing about this setting is typical and I never wanted it to be. As always, thank you again for all your support. Only 5 days left, what wonders can we make happen.

13 days and only $68 to our next threshold of Dragon Lords
We are so close that we can taste it. Less for $70 from reaching the Dragon Lords of NeoExodus and our final goal the the 1st grouping of stretch goals. Once we reach this goal, we will move on to the 2nd grouping of threshold that has even more amazing rewards including our Mythic NeoExodus sourcebook and Psionic NeoExodus sourcebook. So many great rewards coming soon.
14 days and $12,500 more dollars is what we are looking to do.
This is simple and to the point. We only have 14 day to make the crazy amount of $20,000 and you know what? We are going to hit this crazy goal. The reason why is that we know fans WANT to see this campaign book. So tell your friend that the most original campaign setting for Pathfinder to come in years needs their help. We can’t do this with out you. As always, thanks for your support!
Introducing the Sidekick (Archetype)
Some vigilantes don't work alone. They fight their battles with a stalwart companion at their side, a person who shares their convictions and studiously trains under the vigilante's tutelage. Perhaps one day this young person will rise up to replace her mentor. Perhaps she will move on to take the fight to another locale. Whatever the case, the sidekick battles with and learns from another vigilante, whether an older NPC or another player character.
A new Archetype for use with the Pathfinder Role Playing Game Open Playest of the new Base Class, The Vigilante. Download the Sidekick (Archetype) Playtest Here and tell us what you think!
Less than $250 until Dragon Lords - Apocalypse Dragon and Infinity Dragon
We are SO close to this one!!! Let see what we can do to push this one over the mark. Tell every Pathfinder player and GM you know about this going on and how they can help. Let’s crush this threshold so we can start with the next round of threshold goals! As always, thanks for your support!

You might want to check out the Machinesmith. Best of all you can see it here for free.
Have you seen the all new list of threshold rewards for our Kickstarter? With names like Eric Hindley, Alex Augunas, Lance Red, and Juan Diego Dianderas working on this new artwork, Mythic & Psionics rules for Pathfinder RPG fans how could we go wrong?
And now you have Conflict Dragons. Four more all new, EVIL and incredibly dangerous dragons to add to you game. Armageddon, Fury, Holocaust and Wrath dragons from NeoExodus are going to redefine what you think the word "dragon" should be. The next threshold goal that is coming is the counterpoint to the Conflict Dragons: The Stellar Dragons. Gravity, Nebula, Solar and Supernova dragons are just waiting in teh wings to reach this level. And best of all after all that awesome dragon reward, the next threshold will be the return to NeoExodus, one of the greatest 3PP and Paizo Game Designers:
As always, thanks for all of the support on this kickstarter!
Will this all be compiled with the two machinesmith expansions for a print run or is this part of the new NeoExodus book?
The full Updated Machinesmith will be in the upcoming NeoExodus Campaign Setting update. The two expansions will be updated in each PDF. So if you own in already you will be getting a free update.
So we reached our $4,000 threshold goal level and with that another iconic for NeoExodus. Now we work on our next threshold goal: Conflict Dragons. Conflict Dragons are the two words together that sound fantastic. And we want them to be just as awesome as you think the will be. Just wait until you see their breath weapons in action. These are going to bring back the feel of fear and dread when you see a dragon. Let's make this happen!
One Week in and almost at 400% of our goal!!!
What can I say, we are looking great after a week. But not to get cocky, we still are a little under $200 to our next threshold goal. The Malefactor for NeoExodus is going to be a remarkable addition to the game. And after that we go into serious mode trying to reach out next threshold goal: four Conflict Dragons of NeoExodus! So tell everyone you know to support this kickstarter and help us make this an even more impressive kickstarter then planned. As always, thanks for your support!
I'm a backer on this and did so without a second thought. I want to see how far down the rabbit hole this one goes. In many ways I consider this to be the Pathfinder equivalent of Eberron and I loved Eberron for the shifter race.
The closest think I have ever don for shifter was Lykian in Obsidian Apocalypse and they fir perfectly there.
But if I run Neo-Exodus now it will be with a group of races I created using the Fursona series in place of the shifters, the androids are a good stand in for the warforged although I don't see a good replacement for the changelings, something akin to a playable version of the doppelgangers, yet.
I would love to do a changelings race of NeoExodus and dopplegangers do fit the bill very well. I would have to think it over.
They do exist in the setting in the Arman Protectorate. I guess we will need to stat up a few things in the very near future.
A bestiary- As a GM you can never have enough monsters.
Working on that now.
Gear- A whole book of weapons and armor specific to Neo-Exodus like a compilation of a lot of the little pdfs in one print or pdf compendium.
We will have to see about this one.
A book on the faiths of Neo-Exodus
Also something we will have to look into.
$600 from Brian Berg and Total Party Kill Game Iconic AWESOMENESS
So as you can see that the NeoExodus Campaign Setting Update for Pathfinder RPG kickstarter is going VERY WELL and I just want to thank everyone for their support of making this a success. One of the cool things about doing a kickstarter is being able to go to friends and ask them to become a threshold goals for it. Since I am very much into supporting and exposing 3PP to as many Pathfinder fans as I can, I got in touch with Brian Berg at Total Party Kill Games and asked his if he would like to create an iconic for NeoExodus based on his highly successful Malefactor class.
He was kind enough to agree and now being only $600 away from reaching this goal and making it happen! I am even MORE excited! Nothing is cooler than letting designers you like and know play with their “toys” in your sandbox” and so I can only imaging what he is going to come up with. But before we get all that coolness we have to hit this next threshold, so help get the word out. Tell your friends, Hell tell your enemies that we are only $600 away from reaching this goal and we need your help. Let spread this like wildfire! We can do this with your help. As always, thanks for your support!
Don’t you know the next threshold goal is a new Malefactor iconic for NeoExodus: A House Divided from the from Total Party Kill Games mastermind himself, Brian Berg? So why haven’t you become a donor yet? Tomorrow is Friday Payday from some of you, so don’t miss out and support this kickstarter!
It is going to be $30 for shipping.
Personally, I was not a big fan of the traditional dragons. To me they were just big lizards, virtually flying dinosaurs. The NeoExodus dragon at their core are more "elemental" and primordial over traditional "organic". The conflict based dragons appear as if they were made of of metal or stone. the stellar dragons appear to be made out of solid color light. For me, if I cam creating a monsters it should be competently unique and different from things currently in use. I mean how many different type of elves, dwarves, trolls, etc. do you need before they become boring?
Any chance you could shuffle the reward tiers to make just buying the color book an option? I don't really want two copies, even to gift the b/w to someone else. I do find it very odd that there is no option for just a color book - I have never gone to buy something, found it bundled with something I don't want, and after being told I could "gift it (the thing I don't want) to someone else" gone ahead and made the purchase. It seems counter-intuitive, sales-marketing wise. I get that somewhere in the logistics and cost-benefit analysis it makes sense for you guys, but not for me as the consumer.
We have been of the mind set of "This and that" instead of "either or". I want to give people MORE that what they might expect. If we did offer just a full color soft cover version it's donor level would be $60. For just $10 you could get a color AND B&W version, we think that is a better deal over all and feels like a better value to the donors. I feel, way too often too many option are given and is over confusing. We stuck with 4 choices for donors which I think is a fair amount.
Anyway, nice to see the KS trucking along...
Thanks we really have some fun stuff planned at the higher threshold levels.
* Any chance for some stretch goals to increase the page count or more Neo-Exodus crunch? Iconics are completely uninteresting to me, regardless of "names" attached to them.
Since we listen to our fanbase, we decided to move around a few our upcoming threshold rewards and add some all new one. So swing by our kickstarter website at 7 PM EST to see the changes and show you support by donating.
Actually based on the question you stated, it isn't. One the area of races I planned for each race to be able to replace the "feel" of a standard core race with out have to be that specific race. While the NeoExodus race may look different and unique from other fantasy races, at their core they are traditional fantasy races.
1st Threshold Goal Reached - Next $3,000 and more artwork
We are moving like a rocket!!! Reaching our 1st threshold goal in less than 48 hours of starting this kickstarter! I can’t wait to see the awesome creation that Dreamscarred Press will come up for the Aegis iconic for NeoExodus, but you know it is going to be good. Next is $3,000 threshold goal with even more artwork added to this book. As always thank you for your support!!!
NeoExodus has a lot of influences in it creation and development, many of them are not from traditional fantasy sources like typical generic D&D campaign settings folks in the gaming community know and many have said they are tired of playing in. I think anyone who tries NeoExodus can see where is does have some traditional fantasy ideas and influence, but understands that it is not beholden to them as “sacred cows” of fantasy.
We have said it from the beginning, “NeoExodus is a fantasy love letter to Babylon 5”. In addition, we have been inspired by fandom and niche things like CrossGen Comics’ series Negation, Scion and Sojourn; Marvel Comics’ Ultimate Fantastic Four and Ultimates; DC Comics’ series 100 Bullets, Global Frequency, Planetary and Watchmen; the George R. R. Martin’s book series Song of Fire and Ice and TV series Game of Thrones; David Morrell’s Brotherhood of the Rose, Covenant of the Flame and Fraternity of the Stone books; and even Wizards of the Coast’s campaign setting Eberron. Plus much more gave rise to NeoExodus.
Here is part one of the unique elements for NeoExodus:
NeoExodus is a world full of magic. NeoExodus is a world that has advanced by mastery of arcane magic which may be counterintuitive to the classic fantasy and medieval times. Magic is very pervasive in the world of NeoExodus from the instantaneous point-topoint travel via the Nexus Gateway to sentient, freewilled arcane constructs (called Arcane Intelligences). From arcane and eldritch powered skyships and siege weaponry to even commonplace magic casters using their skills to provide many basic provisions and necessities to major cities and even some small towns. The progressive nature of magic has transformed the world so that it feels quite “modern”.
NeoExodus is a world built upon epic adventures, heroic quests and valiant expeditions into the unknown. Through the use of magical and nonmagical means, heroic adventurers can gain access to larger realms of excitement and discoveries which in turn will introduce them to new and interesting challenges to confront and monsters to combat. From exotic locations to unusual surroundings, the challenges of Exodus should pull heroes across the lands of many nations and countries to the entire world. Each area of Exodus is unique and stunning from the tropical rain forest and jungle of the Wyldlands of Bal to the frigid and dangerous peaks in the mountains of Nas. Exodus is truly a world of invigorating exploration and exhilarating action.
NeoExodus is setting of unified empires and nations with their own sovereign rights, power and issues. While each nation or empire - Arman Protectorate, Caneus Empire, the Dominion and the Reis Confederacy - has joined and believes in the unity of the Imperial Alliance, old adversaries and bitter rivalries cause much turmoil in this world. Many of these nations and empires have had long term conflicts with each other that still influence the decisions of the modern day. Other influence groups like the Sanguine Covenant and Section Omega can be felt in the backrooms and dark alleys of any of these nations and empires. All of this in addition to such global threats as the Janus Horde, the Quicksilver Virus pandemic and even a criminal terrorist organization like the Folding Circle threatens to destabilize this fragile peace.
NeoExodus is a world that is rarely at peace for long. Throughout its troubled history, wars and murder were never far away. NeoExodus is always on the brink of war or conflict of some type. With so many different cultures and races working together, there are issues that often will be raised between them. These conflicts might be based on nationality, religious beliefs or even racial issues and these prejudices are deeply propagated in various arenas of daily life. The formation of the Imperial Alliance has done much to help with the understanding of different points of views and now individuals find ways to exist and thrive in this world of Exodus.
In the next update we are going to finish up the ique elements for NeoExodus. And as always, thanks for your support!
$2,000 Threshold Goal – New Iconic (Aegis from Dreamscarred Press
Before I started this kickstarter, I sent out messages to several of the 3PP that I knew asking them for help on some threshold goals I wanted to do. One of the first to respond was Dreamscarred Press. LPJ Design and Dreamscarred Press has had a LONG relationship with NeoExodus going back to the Secret Societies of NeoExodus: Section Omega source book which they were kind enough to write for us. So it only made sense to see if they would do us another favor and do an iconic class for NeoExodus. One of my favorite classes from Dreamscarred Press was that of the Aegis.
And with that I wanted a version for NeoExodus. So after a few message back and forth we all agreed. So when we reach our goal of $2,000 we will unlock this this threshold goal. Help us make this dream come true with your support of this kickstarter!
I'm thinking that once some of the art is covered, the book should get MOAR MONSTERS!!! But maybe that's just me...
We have 17 monsters. I would not mind going to 40 monsters. But, that is all about what they fans want and if we get the funding.
If we're talking monsters à la Chanting Queen/Cyrix? Yes! I'd also be excited to see more info on quickslavers and similar, often hinted-at, but never detailed societies/entities.
As of right now we have NINE organizations with write ups and a section labeled "The Truth". So you have to wonder about that one.
That could eat up a lot of page count. Expanding the NE bestiary by another half dozen or so nasty beasties though...
Honestly, we are at about 200 page right now and I will be willing to go all the way to 400 pages if we can make an AWESOME campaign setting.
Speaking of details on certain entities though, there is a piece in the works that provides a lot of information on the [redacted] that might interest you. ;-)
Are you taking about the thing that you are working on OR the thing that I am work on?
@Louis: Why does the $75 pledge level include a softcover in b/w AND a softcover in color? I'd prefer a lower pledge level for ONLY the softcover in color, especially as there is already a $40 pledge tier for just the softcover in b/w.
The only way to get the color copy WITHOUT the B&W copy is at the $100 which is a hard cover version. We like for those who want a color copy to get a B&W to use "regularly" and keep the color one in great shape if they like. You can always sell the B&W copy when you get it to a friend, local gaming store or even gift to a friend.
* Any chance for some stretch goals to increase the page count or more Neo-Exodus crunch? Iconics are completely uninteresting to me, regardless of "names" attached to them.
Since the main focus of this kickstarter was to get more artwork for our book, that is what we have focused on. We will be adding crunch to the higher levels, but that is after we have added the amount of artwork we wanted to cover.
Congrats on funding so quickly!
