Just curious, does anyone know if they will add this race to the Hero Lab software as a PC race and or update the Lizardfolk NPC race with the stat's in this one?
We've done 5 sets of Hero Lab files so far. It's certainly possible that the Kobold crew will generate HL files for the Advanced Races series as well (Not right away, but it's on the list).
Could not be prouder of this series by RPG Superstar Mike Welham! It starts off with a shout to a very traditional style giant, the thursir, who is keen on working at the forge and making armor and weapons for his larger kin.
The thursir might not be much bigger than ogres, but they are smarter, more skilled, and more interesting in every way. Check them out!
I clearly should have checked in on this thread sooner. Questions submitted on the KoboldPress.com site get answered faster, FWIW.
Is there any rules on what can be submitted? Does it have to be something brand new, or a conversion of something from a previous edition/other system?
Great question, and yes, it must be something new. Any conversion from another edition or other game systems will be disqualified.

Since you are doing this, does that mean that WotC has finally released some sort of OGL/GSL/etc?
WotC has not released any sort of open license that I am aware of. I think that news would be all over the net.
Can affidavit be in digital form?
A digital document has legal status in the United States, which is where we're holding our contest, so we'll accept it. We are not accepting paper submissions of any kind.
Thanks for the interest, and I'll check back again tomorrow.
Time to celebrate the best in new, upcoming talent for a new edition of D&D!
Kobold Press has launched a 5th Edition D&D monster contest. Entries are due February 23, prizes and payment are awarded for the winner and the winning monster will be illustrated and shared with 5th Edition gamers.
Advanced Races: Ravenfolk did just get an update recently, and they make good scoundrel-villains as well as good PCs.
Gearforged is an excellent option, for a fairly high-powered campaign (they get a lot of good immunities). Kobold Press is working on updating Advanced Races: Gearforged to include scaling power levels, in case your game is not high on the starting power level.
Thanks! It's the first time ever for a Kobold Press book at the Escapist.
We had an amazing group of designers, backers, and artists. The book is up against a Paizo title in the same category (so I don't think we'll win the category), and yet it is great that people noticed just how well this book turned out.
Print version is available at the Kobold Press store right now, and I imagine it will be live here at Paizo soon.
And if you happen to be in the Seattle area, we're doing a book launch/signing at the University of Washington Bookstore tonight at 7 PM. I'll be there with Chris Pramas, Rob Heinsoo, Jeff Grubb, Steve Winter, and others.
Been working on the major Southlands pantheons for a while, and they are starting to gel. At least, the desert section and the Nurians.
Horus and Aten are on the list for Nurian Imajaghan; elsewhere it might be less well-known figures like Ogun or Xevioso. In the deep deserts, though, it is Yemaja, goddess of waters, who stands as a favorite of paladin imajaghan in the Southlands.
There 960 backers, and the rewards include an amazing set of player options, campaign books, and adventures. It will make your desert adventures shine, and inspire some great new characters. )Not to mention all the monsters and demonic cults to inspire GMs!)
There's just EIGHT (8) hours left.
After that, you've missed out on the latest goods from Paizo staffers like Owen Stephens, Stephen Radney-MacFarland, Adam Daigle, and RPG Superstars like Steve Helt, Mike Welham, and Jason Nelson.
The secret reward is a very small one, but I think it's also very cool.
And yes, I think those scrolls should be written on discarded snake skin. I'm sure the art director will find it simple to show that in snake-textured graphics. There's a Photoshop plugin for snakeskin, right? :)
And yes, LOTS of good stuff at 1,001 backers, including material by Paizo's own Owen Stephens, and RPG Superstar Steve Helt, and more.
Hey Justmebd, you're right, the exclusive is a backer-only item. Southlands backers can upgrade to the rewards that include it at any time. But it's not a standalone.
Ten Arabian Nights is available in PDF as part of the $48 Digital Complete package (which is currently 13 books total, including the 3 big ones). The same book is available in print at a lot of tiers, starting with the $101 tier.
You are correct that the Ten Arabian Nights print book is not listed in the add-ons, and there's no tier that is just the hardcover and the adventures. The demand for print-only definitely exists, but it's small, so I try to just provide one or two print-only options.
Jinn-Blooded is the $39 option for the hardcover without any digital materials etc (and shipped to any US address). My advice would be stick with that, and see whether the Arabian Nights fits your budget in a month or two, when the survey goes out.
All three items at the $80,000 now unlocked and added to the rewards for backers! And we have an introduction coming from Jeff Grubb, the designer of Al-Qadim. And we're accepting monster submissions from backers.
The three latest additions include:
1) Blue Turbans: Martial Traditions of the Southlands for Fighters, Rangers, and Paladins
If we find a few more backers, the printed poster map gets bound into the back of the book as well.
Helpful tip, Egon:
