I'm ready to back it just for the map. Looks great!

Oh, man, "Endy to Indy" is a great tagline. I'll spread the word a bit more, maybe throw it in the next newsletter.

Will I be able to purchase a hardcover copy through paypal anywhere? It'd have to ship to Germany.

Yes, you can buy via PayPal using a special code in BackerKit. I can set that up.... Soon?

One bit of advice: unless you are using the Realms or Ravenloft setting, my advice would be to publish on DriveThruRPG, Paizo, Open Gaming Store, and Tabletop Library under the OGL.

You preserve your ability to use your book elsewhere (like in print, or in non-DMs Guild releases like adventure), and you get a much higher royalty than DM's Guild offers.

For free cover art.... Dover Press is your friend. You could also commission new art from an artist just starting in their career; check DeviantArt for artist galleries.

What a great list of projects! Thanks for shining a spotlight on our card game, and all these great RPG projects!

They are charming folks over at Wizards! It was very kind of them to invite me.

As a related topic: I really, really wish that Paizo staff had a podcast. They're at least as entertaining (possibly more!), and it would be great to hear them speaking about their favorite projects and campaigns and triumphs.

The Exchange Contributor; Publisher, Kobold Press; RPG Superstar Judge

And we don't. All the spells in Deep Magic are Open.

The Exchange Contributor; Publisher, Kobold Press; RPG Superstar Judge

Currently not planned. Though if I had to pick, I think we'd avoid the semi-precious stones (save those for drakes), and do diamond and maybe jade.

However, we have plans to do psionic variants if/when those rules become official, and plan to add more art to the PDF if/when we hit the Gold sales level.

Thank you for the review, Malwing!

The Exchange Contributor; Publisher, Kobold Press; RPG Superstar Judge

Not to my knowledge, no.

The Exchange Contributor; Publisher, Kobold Press; RPG Superstar Judge

I love that this course exists (and likewise Christina's class). Curious to hear how it turns out.

Very happy to announce that the Southlands Campaign Setting has been chosen as one of the Top 10 Releases of 2015 by Endzeitgeist!

#7: Southlands Campaign Setting by Kobold Press

One of the most beautiful books I’ve ever read, Southlands is a thoroughly
inspired, brilliant and creative campaign setting that breathes the glorious spirit of Midgard, that takes a bow to real world mythology and that feels concise, almost novel-like in its superbly evocative prose. Southlands is absolutely superb in every way.

The details are available in Pathways #57 (free download at DriveThru, doesn't seem to be here on Paizo yet).

And we made the Top 10 Downloads in the Paizo newsletter!

As a further supplement to the adventure, and a thanks to everyone who has picked it up, we've also released a free map of the Arbonesse region over on the Kobold store.

The Exchange Contributor; Publisher, Kobold Press; RPG Superstar Judge

Thank you for that review Mine All Mine!

The Exchange Contributor; Publisher, Kobold Press; RPG Superstar Judge

Hurray for the Wrath of the River King shoutout!

Boo for the typo in "provies"!

The Exchange Contributor; Publisher, Kobold Press; RPG Superstar Judge

That is a wonderful idea! I'll ask about it, and I suspect the answer will be yes.

The Exchange Contributor; Publisher, Kobold Press; RPG Superstar Judge

2 people marked this as a favorite.

Yep, they've been a favorite of mine since they first appeared in (gulp) 1980.

This version also includes Sardior and 5 named individual gem dragons of the Realms, plus some neat lore and stats for the Sardorian golems.

@Liz/Person in the know - Is the print/pdf option going to be added?

Yes, the print option is available at Kobold Press and at Amazon.

Thank you for the review, Corerue!

And agree with you Adam, both Marc and the artists did an amazing job on the graphics.

In addition, an overland detail map of the whole Arbonesse Forest is coming together, and should be available by the end of the month.

It's a good fit for Kingmaker in tone and theme, but it's not written with Mythic tiers in mind. Though in my experience, it's probably easier to ramp up a power level than it is to ramp it down.

Would this fit into the Kingmaker AP?

Yes, this is a very good fit for the Kingmaker AP.

For what it's worth, there's a third Southlands adventure in the works right now as well. It's a lot of fun to design.

And for an unofficial, proto-Southlands adventure, The Forgotten King's Tomb is also set in the South.

The nice thing about doing good work is when people notice. :)

Congrats on going 4 in a row, Marc!

Those leather editions are a complete STEAL at $160 or $170. They cost significantly more than that to make...

Thank you for the review, EZG!

It's great to see so many people checking it out. Awaiting more reviews!

The Exchange Contributor; Publisher, Kobold Press; RPG Superstar Judge

The Hero Lab files for the Southlands are available, containing all the new races, feats, spells, bloodlines and archetypes from the campaign setting to get your Southlands heroes working in Hero Lab. Huge congrats to Karen and the whole digital team, including the QA testers at Lone Wolf, who made this possible!

Assuming you already use Hero Lab, you can get them from Lone Wolf here.

Thank you all for an awesome round of birthday wishes! Very much appreciated, and hey, someone gave me a Leap Day this year as well. :)

The Exchange Contributor; Publisher, Kobold Press; RPG Superstar Judge

Yep, the hardcover plus PDF is available as a pre-order.

Better yet, according to Backerkit you will not be charged until it ships!

Not that soon, I don't think. Still in playtest, but April is not out of the question.

Trickster Feats is definitely in the idea mill now! Seems like there could be some fun options down that path.

Trickster definitely found a way to join the party. Thanks for the nod, Paizo Store!

Posted new file with a small correction to a table.

The Exchange Contributor; Publisher, Kobold Press; RPG Superstar Judge

5th Edition Midgard is relatively new to 5E support (since August 2015), but it has a steady stream of releases coming in the next few months to a year.

Migard currently has the core hardcover setting book, a Southlands expansion book in high detail with downloadable map, two books of heroic races and backgrounds, and (as of this writing) 4 adventures.

I'll agree with Norman that it's really tough to see any support for Greyhawk in the last 10 years or so. Which doesn't mean it isn't an awesome setting (because it is), but it certainly is possible to run through the canonical materials.

Marc has been working on some others. They're not ready yet.

The Exchange Contributor; Publisher, Kobold Press; RPG Superstar Judge

The other four are kitsune, wereshark, suli, and ratfolk.

Neat! I agree it does tilt a bit to weekly PDF releases, and I notice it only goes back to October 2014, but it's still great to see this.

I'd agree with Jason and Rite Publisher that the Kickstarter numbers are a whole different thing (and likely outweigh the PDF sales by a good amount). Kickstarter has certainly changed the industry, but it's good to see the Paizo newsletter mined for data too.

Thanks for compiling this, Distant Scholar.

Man, I wish there was more on the Shadow Fey, they're a riot, still the rest of the book is fantastic, to the point where I've bought it even though I own half the advanced races options.

Out of interest, is there any chance of us getting more shadow fey information in the future?

Yes, indeed! The shadow fey have a way of showing up whether they are wanted or not, and there are plans to bring them back as part of a Spring adventure and a Fall release.

The Exchange Contributor; Publisher, Kobold Press; RPG Superstar Judge

No, it assumes that the party has fought the Cult of the Dragon several times (completed Hoard of the Dragon Queen), but has not yet faced Tiamat.

EDIT TO ADD: It is also, of course, playable as a standalone encounter in the Realms, though it requires some familiarity with Hoard of the Dragon Queen.

The Exchange Contributor; Publisher, Kobold Press; RPG Superstar Judge

Paizo has the PDF and the page previews in hand. Not sure when they will post them; that's up to them!

The Exchange Contributor; Publisher, Kobold Press; RPG Superstar Judge

14 pages including the cover, so too small for a print-on-demand release this time.

Definitely something worth using for larger books, though.

The Exchange Contributor; Publisher, Kobold Press; RPG Superstar Judge

Getting some crazy great reviews as well for giant-centric side trek.

I can't wait to get this book. Do you know if the Character Codex will every get a physical copy option?

Um... Maaaaaybe? It was meant primarily as a PDF companion to the hardcover, but we could probably spin up a POD version in the next month or two.

The Exchange Contributor; Publisher, Kobold Press; RPG Superstar Judge

Thank you, Lord Mhoram! We went a little crazy on the feedback/development/editing cycle this time around, because we wanted this to just shine shine shine.

There's also a Character Codex PDF coming soon, with 25 sample characters showing off the new options in convenient NPC form.

Shipping notices haven't gone out, but the first wave packages have. (The shipper hasn't been able to upload a key tracking # spreadsheet, so it's entirely possible that your book will arrive before your confirmation.)

Combined shipping is definitely the way to go for overseas shipping!

Print + PDF bundle available here!

A bundle will be available on Paizo whenever all the elements come together, sometime next week.

@Axial, looks like PDF to backers very soon. We're shipping the print books to backers this weekend.
