[Kobold Press] Southlands


Legacy of Fire

Liberty's Edge

Hey everyone! I figured people running or plaing in Legacy of Fire would be interested: Kobold Press recently launched its Southlands Kickstarter ...

Adventure beneath the pitiless sun! New monsters, new magic, and realms inspired by the Arabian Nights, Egypt, & pulp adventure tales!

Lost empires! Cursed tombs! Dinosaurs and djinn! A Pathfinder RPG compatible sourcebook for adventures in the deserts and deep jungle.

The wealth of material contained within would be an absolute gold mine for folks playing this AP!!!!

You can find more info here

Hey everyone, quick update!

In its first week, Southlands has funded 12 stretch goals so far, including six expansions to the core book, as well as five PDF extras (Gnolls, Aasimar, Jinnborn, Emerald Tablet, Hand of Nakresh), and one additional adventure for Eight Arabian Nights (Tomb of the Elephant God)

And, there's plenty more to come during the coming weeks! If you are an Al Qadim fan, you owe it to yourself to jump over and check out the Southlands Kickstarter today :)

And Amber Scott (who I think did some of her first Paizo items for Legacy of Fire) is also writing an adventure for Southlands.

Just confirmed that this weekend, really happy to have her aboard!

$57,000 goal reached!

Next up, the Red Portal opens and then, when we reach $60K, we get brand new full page art by Al-Qadim artist Fred Fields!!!

Oh, and let's not forget Ishadia, land of the Aasimar ...

The Southlands book keeps getting bigger and better! Only 9 days remain ... :)

OUTSTANDING!! "Dark Markets, A Guide to Katapesh" is STILL one of my all time favorite game books.

Yep, agreed, Amber rocks.

The Southlands Kickstarter has unlocked a HUGE number of stretch goals so far and there are still plenty of awesome goals to be revealed ... including some positively amazing ones! )

We are also only 14 backers away from hitting 700 Backers, which unlocks an awesome Southlands poster map!

And, with only 7 days left, things are going to to get even more exciting, so be sure to spread the word and, if you haven't gotten involved yet ... what are you waiting for!?!?!?!? :)

Enter the Southlands Now!

Learn lots more by checking out the latest update:
Southlands Update 16

Liberty's Edge

OK - only a few days left, so it's the home stretch! Less than $800 to go to add Necrology of the Mummy by Mr. Richard Pett to the Southlands Core book AND add Advanced Races: Werelion to the growing pile of bobus PDFs!

Oh, and only about 40 additional backers to unlock the custom Southlands set of dice.

Update 17.

And speaking of dice:

What is it with you and curses? It's like you're not happy without a good curse.

"This is cursed! That is cursed!"

Pfft. :P

This is it! Speak now or forever hold your peace. You don't have to go home but you can't stay here! :) Bottom of the ninth, two outs and bases loaded! Tie score, 30 seconds left and Landon's about to take the penalty kick!

Today - Friday - is the FINAL DAY for the Southlands Kickstarter!!!!

More than 920 backers have signed up for their ticket to the Southlands, and have unlocked a metric ton of cool stretch goals — more than 40, at last count!

The core Southlands hard cover book has become a weighty tome because it now has more than 20 additions to the text and graphics!

And that's not even mentioning the second book, the Southlands Bestiary ... or the Ten Arabian Nights collection of adventures, or the 11 PDF extras, or the set of limited edition custom dice ... you get the idea :)

Now we’re down to the final day and our very last stretch goals. About five crazy things happen if we can reach 1,001 backers, including a really big one which I don't think has been revealed yet. We can get there, but only with your help. Every new backer, even one who just pledges $1 gets up closer to that magical 1,001 number!

Tell your players, your GM, or your friends online about this project today, because it's all over tonight!

8 Hours Left! After that, the extras disappear and those who failed to back the Southlands can only weep bitter tears.

Don't weep bitter tears. Grab it while it's as hot as the City of Brass!
