We’ve been lucky enough to have an exclusive preview of Good Brother Studios’ Legends of the MetaVerse 5e already. Now, the Kickstarter campaign is live.
The standard edition of the 350+ page hardcover has cover art by comic book heroes Jae Lee and June Chung. Exclusive to Kickstarter is a variant edition with this year’s Eisner Award-winner Mike Allred and Laura Allred. The variant edition is all art, no title, nothing, just a stunning monster v hero illustration. You can see how close they are to the $30,000 target or just jump in a pledge at the project page.
The superhero RPG takes the rule system that powers D&D and applies it to superheroes. You don’t need any fantasy game experience, though, as the basics are free and accessible to all.
Legends of the MetaVerse adds 10 classes, 32 subclasses, origin stories, secret identities, powers, more powers and then more powers, 80 rogues for villains and enhanced combat rules.
Legends of the MetaVerse is a superhero tabletop RPG based on the 5th edition of the world’s most popular role-playing game. The 350+ page Core Rulebook will contain everything you need to start playing, including rules for creating your favorite superhero, a Rogues Gallery of 80 notorious ne’er-do-wells, a guide to Neo Amsterdam: City of Tomorrow, a map of the myriad strange worlds that make up the MetaVerse, and iconic items specially selected to supplement any superpower.
A pledge of $25 will get you all the stretch goals and a PDF copy of those 350+ pages.
Stepping up to $40 gets you a digital copy of the introductory adventure as well.
The hardcover ships only to the States at the $60 tier, but it comes with the previously unlocked digital assets. At $70, that becomes the variant cover. In both instances, you still have shipping to pay.
There are higher tiers, adding in art and adventure prints, and they go all the way up to $300. The art in Legends of the MetaVerse looks incredible. People will back the project for it.
Sadly, though, the physical rewards are all restricted to the States. I suspect we’ll need commercial success and a logistics partner to see the physical book reach international markets. For US backers, that makes the variant cover, the Kickstarter exclusive, even more attractive.
The estimated fulfilment date is July 2022. If you can’t wait, you can download the text from Good Brother Studios today.
