Getting closer and closer to the release of the first Edge of Eventide adventure, I've posted up a preview of some of the rules you can expect to get with each character.

Not only will each PC include a backstory, personality, and motivation, each will also have unique rules elements designed specifically for this campaign and for that character. In this first preview, I am showing off the elven subrace that is used by Leylinia, the elven cleric in the group. Called the Cenasar, these elves have a deep tie to the seasonal changes of the world around them, gaining abilities and resistances depending on the season.

You can download a FREE PDF that gives you all the racial traits of the Cenasar right HERE.

Enjoy!


Hey there all,

Just want to let everybody know that I have put a Pirate Loot Bundle on sale for the Holidays! The Admiral's Bundle contains the Base Game and the 6-Player Expansion deck for just $19.99.

It is only on sale here at Paizo, so get it while it lasts!

Happy Holidays from the Maze!

Over the weekend, I added a new Patron level called the "Gift of Eventide" which allows you to have all of the PDFs for the campaign (adventure, PCs, and all background PDFs) sent to another person as a gift when each adventure is released!

Happy Holidays Everybody


Today the first piece of full color art for one of the PCs was revealed! Take a look at Karwyn, the tough dwarven mercenary!

I could not be happier with Lance Red's work on these characters. They are truly amazing and he worked really hard to capture the feel and spirit of each PC.


A lot of great developments on the project in the last week. Check out the first draft of the map of Aubenglade, the location of the first adventure in the arc!

Supporters also got a look at some of the finished character art!


Thank you Valcrist! That was a good summary of my campaign and I have shared it on social media. I like the 3D model, but it is a bit off from the actual symbol (which you can see unobstructed on the banner of my facebook page).

Thanks for helping to share my project!

Good idea! I will be sure to include some basic combat tactics for each PC.


So, I've been asking this on a few sites, but just realizes I forgot to post this here...

So, I am trying to source as much data as I can for the Edge of Eventide campaign and its characters, and I don't want to get caught in the trap of only listening to sources that are already sold on a concept. To that end, I thought I would as a few questions of the crowd here to make sure I've got my bases covered.

So, the campaign that I am developing comes with the characters provided, each one with a backstory, personality, secrets, and goals. I am currently trying to work out what I should include in each character dossier that will be given to the players. So far, I have the following:

Stat Block
Illustration
History
Family
Personality
Relationships (with the other PCs)
Secrets and Goals
New Rules

So.. here is the question. Is that too much? Not enough? Is there anything I am obviously missing? I realize that playing a pregenerated character is not everyone's cup of tea, but assuming that you were playing, is that enough?


1 person marked this as a favorite.

Yeah, I am thinking about making another video that distills down some of the points I made in that interview, as they really help to get across what I am trying to do with this campaign.

In any case, welcome aboard and thanks for your support!


Story brief has been posted for backers at the GM level and above, giving them a look at the backstory and a blurb for the first adventure.

Meanwhile, backers at the Eventide Lord level (EL) have gotten a look at my process for creating the narrative and a deeper synopsis of the first couple adventures.

If you are a supporter, make sure to check the posts tab frequently!

Late last night we hit our first goal for the Edge of Eventide fundraising campaign on Patreon! This first goal ensures that the campaign will go forward and the writing is already underway!

Look for character briefs and a story brief for GMs in the coming days!


2 people marked this as a favorite.

It is my plan that the adventure will assume 6 PCs, and be balanced with that assumption.

It will also, of course, include notes on how to adjust it for fewer PCs.


1 person marked this as a favorite.

Absolutely!

The characters might be of a slightly different level, but they will be balanced with each other.

And I hope folks enjoyed the podcast. It was a blast to do. If you missed it, it's on YouTube at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8gwgYO7VUFU


Will be going on live with the folks at the Know Direction podcast here at 5:30pm PST (in just 20 minutes). Feel free to drop in and here me talk all about the campaign!

Glad to have you aboard! We are closing in on the halfway mark to the first goal and I just posted a status update for all of the supporters with a good look at Valtirus, the wizard of the group!

Oceanshieldwolf,

That 40K stretch goal is a big one for me and every little bit gets us closer to that expansion! At 30K, not only do we unlock 6 bonus cards for backers, but we also reveal the section faction in that deck!

Hey there all,

Minotaur Games got it start doing PDFs compatible with Pathfinder, but we want our game company to offer a wider array of products. Just two weeks ago, I launched a Kickstarter to fund a game called Pirate Loot! Its a fast-paced card game of treasure and treachery for 2 to 4 players. As of this moment, it is already well past funding, but I need your help to reach some of those Loot-filled stretch goals!

So. I am running a challenge this weekend! If you can help Pirate Loot crush its $30K stretch goal (only about $3,300 to go) by midnight (PST) on Sunday September 7th, I will make ALL of my previous Minotaur Games PDFs available FOR FREE until the end of the Pirate Loot Kickstarter! That's $25 in PDFs for free, for EVERYBODY!

Check out the Pirate Loot Kickstarter HERE!

Plenty of room to join our crew! Welcome Aboard!
