Thank you for the shout-out Paizo!
The Underworld Races & Classes Kickstarter is spelunking into the depths of the Underworld funding within the first hour and already unlocking lots of stretch and backer goals.
The Underworld Races & Classes tome for 5th Edition and the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game (two separate books) includes devious drow, deep mining svirfneblin, psychedelic funglets, beautiful, semi-crystalline colliatur and more: a total of 14 new races and over 25 classes clocking in at 250+ pages!
Authors of the newly revised Underworld Races & Classes tome include Thilo Graf AKA Endzeitgeist (Advanced Races Compendium by Kobold Press, Laying Waste by TPK Games, Strange Magic by Interjection Games), Stephen Rowe (Advanced Races Compendium, Paizo: Pathfinder Player Companions: Paths of the Righteous, Healer's Handbook, and Haunted Heroes Handbook), Chris Harris (Tome of Beasts, Advanced Races), Mike Myler (ENnie winning AaWBlog!, Hypercorps 2099 by Legendary Games, Veranthea Codex by Rogue Genius Games), and Jonathan G. Nelson (AAW Games owner/publisher and author on Rise of the Drow, Snow White, and Alagoran's Gem).
Best of all: The book is written, playtested and ready to go - it is literally finished and ready for layout! The text is all done and this campaign is all about getting you the best-looking, most gorgeous book you can ask for!
Instead of lining up additional races & classes as stretch goals we're giving you everything up front, straight out of the gates!
