Kingmaker 10th Anniversary Campaign Begins!

Tuesday, May 7, 2019

Nearly a decade ago, the Kingmaker Adventure Path helped lead the way with an open-ended "sandbox" style adventure that encouraged exploration and conquest in a rugged wilderness. Its open-world narrative and kingdom-building elements gave players and Game Masters unparalleled freedom to explore and shape the world with their heroic actions. It has become one of the best-selling and most beloved campaigns in Pathfinder's history.

Today, we are proud to announce the Kingmaker 10th Anniversary crowdfunding campaign has begun with our friends at Game On Tabletop! You can see all the details now at KingmakerCampaign.com. Explore the books, the Add-Ons, and the Level-Ups. Help us build a bigger, better, more immersive Kingmaker campaign.

Together, we'll take your new kingdom—and the Kingmaker campaign—to new heights of power!

Make your pledge on Game On Tabletop!

I wouldn't count it out. There are lots of people waiting to the end of the campaign to pledge, specifically because of how GameOnTableTop charges upfront. I'd be willing to bet we'll hit the $400k

And that's fair. We're pointing out that buying the 1E bestiary alone isn't going to be worth it, and trying to prevent him from spending hours complaining about being ripped off in the future because it's not what he wanted.

Fixed that for polite conversation.

I'm well aware a Bestiary won't include encounters, but it will include new monsters, maybe NPCs, and I presume a consolidation of the individual AP monsters. That's quite useful. More useful alone than needing to pick through a P2E campaign to locate the added encounters.

So I still say count me in for a 1E KM Bestiary.

The 1E Bestiary also will include updated versions of characters that already existed in the original KM AP, but were only using Core Rulebook rules. So the Old Beldame will likely be restatted as a witch, Baron Drelev as a swashbuckler, and so on. Equipment might likewise be tailored to incorporate new magic items from Ultimate Equipment and later books. Exactly how many NPCs will get those kind of updates is yet to be determined, but there will be a fair amount of them.


SWWWWWWWWWWWEEEEEEEEEEEEEET!


Booooooooooooooooooooooooo

That is awesome to see and might convince me to get the 1E Bestiary to go with my original soft covers.

Changing Irovetti to a Magus or something would also be amazing!

I think king works better as bard, but that might be because our pc party's king is battle herald :p

Anyway, I really need to get dat 1e bestiary as pdf, so hopefully its available after campaign

When I ran Kingmaker in my home game, I restatted him as a single-classed bard with the Arcane Duelist archetype. He was quite a holy terror for the PCs but they finally put him down.

Pretty sure I posted the stats here at Paizo.com, though I have no idea where. You could probably find it if you search "Jason Nelson Irovetti Arcane Duelist."

It took more searching than you might think, but I found it here.

By the by, now that the Kingmaker GameOnTabletop campaign has ended, anyone interested in the kingdom-building and conquest sides of Kingmaker definitely should check out the Ultimate Kingdoms Kickstarter from Legendary Games, compiling some of our best-loved (and best-selling!) books of all time in the Ultimate line, including several on Endzeitgeist's Top Ten of the Year lists when they debuted! We wrote the official kingdom rules and mass combat chapter in Ultimate Campaign and we just kept on creating more awesome stuff for expanding your campaign, and now we're putting it all together for you! You can get Ultimate Kingdoms for either Pathfinder or 5E, or both if you like!

You can follow news and updates on the Kickstarter right here on the message boards at Paizo.com, and send us your comments or questions.

Check out the latest update here, with our first stretch goal already in the bag with AD&D legend Allen Hammack and the Heralds' Guild, plus details on the next stretch goals coming, including the troop template and sample troops conversions, new cover art, and our next celebrity guest, the stupendous Stephen Radney-MacFarland!

Will there be an update/newsletter/missive of some type to keep backers informed of the progress of the Kingmaker 10th Anniversary crowdfunding... weekly, monthly, quarterly?

Hi all,

We've posted a new thread in the Kingmaker Adventure Path discussion forum to ask people about specific encounters, creatures, and NPCs they experienced during either playing or GMing the original Kingmaker AP that were in their feeling way too easy, way too hard, or otherwise boring, anticlimactic, tedious, or just generally un-fun. If you've got experiences or thoughts to share on the original adventures head on over and let us know when, where, and why!

Thanks!

I received a late pledge post card with my Tomorrow Must Burn adventure path.

When these books hit retail, will they be there own separate subscription? Or would they be included under the Adventure path subscription?

I would like to make sure that if I buy them during the late pledge that I won't then get a second copy as a subscription.

Just as the Rise of the Runelords and Curse of the Crimson Throne Hardcover compilations, the Kingmaker Hardcover will (pretty much guaranteed) not be part of any subscription.

Will I be able to buy a copy if I don't pledge.

Nothing personal, I don't do kickstarters.

They confirmed (on GameOnTabletop) that the hardcover and additional books will be available for purchase through normal distributor channels, but some items will be exclusive:
The kingdom management screen, Kingmaker hero-point tokens, and Kingmaker Dice IIRC.

[EDIT:]I just looked again, I did miss the special edition leatherette versions of the Kingmaker hardcover and companion guide, and the slipcase will be exclusives as well.

They will not be a separate subscription offer, and we don't have any plans to include them as part of existing subscriptions.

Can you please define "exclusive items" regarding this? Is that the pawns, 5e bestiary, 1e bestiary, and flip mats?
