[Drop Dead Studios] Greater Rogue Glory mini-Kickstarter


Product Discussion


1 person marked this as a favorite.

Through a bizarre sequence of events including our layout lady wishing to redo her work, freelancers popping up at the exact right time, and other factors coming together, we're getting the chance to do something I hadn't though we'd get to do for years: Expand and update our first book, Rogue Glory.

We're running an 11-day kickstarter dedicated to raising funds quickly, after which we send freelancers to work updating and expanding the book get some artists to do some original pieces, and get it out to everyone by Christmas.

Rogue Glory was a book all about the Pathfinder Rogue, including new abilities, rewrites of the Stealth and trap rules, new archetyes, new magic items, new feats and rogue talents, and everything else possible, all related to the rogue. While the mechanics are great, the book itself is black and white and riddled with first-time publisher mistakes. The mechanics are also a few years out of date with everything that's been happening in the Pathfinder world.

This isn't an update to Rogue Glory; we're going to be discontinuing that product and replacing it with this one, which will have a higher price point to reflect its expanded status. If you already own Rogue Glory you can get the upgrade for only $5 with a special tier. Otherwise, please come and check it out.

Sounds good. Will this be about the Unchained Rogue?

The Kickstarter has 3 days left in it, and we're still shy by about 1,600. It won't take much of a final push to get us over that amount.

The update will make it compatible with the unchained rogue as well as the core rogue, yes.


My pledge wasn't much, but I'm in too. Really hope it makes it. {crosses fingers and toes}


Ack! Only 66 hours left and still not fully funded. :(

I still think it can get there!
For anyone interested/on the fence have at look at Endzeitgeist's very thorough and informative review of the original edition of Rogue Glory:

Unfortunately it looks like the kickstarter won't make it. What a shame. :(


Posted about it again, hopefully generating some interest.


48 hours to go, still not there. Dang it. :)

I was really looking forward to see what new stuff they'd come up with for the unchained rogue (and maybe even the unchained ninja, or DDS' own unchained ninja).


Yeah, but no response re unchained rogue, so...

They said it was for both rogues:

Was there something(s) specific you wanted to see in the updated book?


I hate the fact that the Real to Dollar conversion is atrocious right now...


Just $1300 to go to be fully funded and less than 28 hours to do it in.

I dropped in a bit. This one got hidden on the forums bad, I didn't see it until just now.


~4 hours to go, still not there. Dang it. :)


Sigh...$1000 short. :(

Was really looking forward to getting this pdf updated.


Me too. Still, they had 48 backers in just 11 days. I don't know DDS' financial budget/breakdown on what they'd planned for GRG, but I'm hopeful that enough interest was demonstrated to warrant going through with the project (and that the final book would be profitable enough to recoup their investments).

So thos is a book that is intended to make rogues in pathfinder better?

Check out the original, it's an awesome book for PF Rogues and expanding their available options and tricks.

I very much hope this gets made, even if it doesn't have a great art budget and isn't quite as big. Either that, you try again and made it a full month kickstarter.
