The Ultramodern publisher will now bring to life three settings. They are Paradise, dungeon-crawling inside an alien mega-structure, Conestoga, mecha battles for control over a massive spacecraft and Torus, a steampunk and magical, occult conflict within a post-apocalyptic world.
Each world uses D&D 5e system and adds something new.
Paradise adds 3 new races, 5 new backgrounds, 1 new class and a spellcasting system based on talismans.
Conestoga adds 3 new races, 7 new backgrounds, a new weapon construction system and 40 new power armours with upgrades.
Torus adds 3 new races, 6 new backgrounds, 1 new class, a new inscription-based enchantment system and a new spellcasting system based on playing cards.
Affinity was part of a previous UltraModern Kickstarter that Dias Ex Machina ran and then expanded, making the pledge tiers a little more complicated than usual. Some are only available to backers of that specific campaign who want to upgrade.
We’ll just look at the “fresh start” tiers below.
A pledge of CA$ 13 (about £8) will get you a digital monochrome edition of one of the Affinity PDFs and a print-on-demand coupon. An upgrade to CA$ 18 makes that a full-colour edition.
A pledge of CA$ 31 (£18 thereabouts) gets you all three settings in monochrome and early access. The upgrade to colour takes the pledge to CA$ 43.
One colour hardback takes a CA$ 49 pledge that comes with accompanying PDFs. The set of three colour books costs CA$ 125.
Digital-only backers are expected to receive their rewards, with the usual Kickstarter risks, in October. The hardbacks are expected later and in February 2022.
