The pledge target for the next version of Into the Odd was met within moments of the Kickstarter launching.
The rules-light, flavourful, tabletop RPG of industrial horror with cosmic weird woven in. You can read more, see the latest total or pledge from the pitch page.
McDowall, known for Electric Bastionland, has teamed up with the graphic design talents of Johan Nohr, known for MORK BORG and Free League, who did very well this year’s ENnies (and last year, and the year before…) for distribution.
Into the Odd is McDowall’s game, Free League are logistic partners.
The game is a remastered version rather than a new edition with rules updates. It’s a tweak on what’s gone before, visually enhanced and written known that it’ll be printed.
Bastion is the only city that matters. In its industrial age, it sits as the smoke-shrouded hub of mankind, surrounded by a world of lurking horrors and cosmic interference. The Underground spreads beneath our feet and the stars loom above.
You are an Explorer, braving places too far for maps and too old for records. Your expeditions touch the bizarre, wondrous, and horrific. You search for riches, but also Arcana, mysterious devices with unnatural powers.
The original was published in 2014 and is superseded by this version.
A digital copy is available as a reward with a pledge of just £14.
The printed copy becomes available as a deliverable with pledges of £28; those come with PDF copies as well.
That’s it for the pledges. Chris and the team have kept it that simple. Shipping costs are added afterwards. There’s an additional £7.50 being needed for the UK, £11 for the EU, £8.50 for the USA and £14 for Canada.
Unfortunately, Brazil, Belarus, Russia, Ukraine, Kazakhstan and Afghanistan are out of scope for physical copy shipping.
Fulfilment for the digital edition is due in January, and the hardback is expected later in April.
