London-based Roll & Play apparently don’t want to take it easy in the run-up to the festive season as they’ve launched a sprint of a Kickstarter campaign to fun a set of GM resources.
The Game Master’s Christmas Essentials offers a festive flair to any fantasy game, with random tables, monsters, quests and even audio. It also promises to be out in time for Christmas. It’s funded, and you can jump on the brief campaign via the pitch page.
As you might expect, the deliverables are purely digital and not titanic volumes of work. The Essentials offering is a 24-paged ebook or a printer optimised one.
Inside are winter festival name generators, naughty NPCs and nice ones, quests, locations, folklore and even holiday-themed critical hits. No, really, they even show some examples of the latter.
The perfect gift for your GM, tabletop RPG-loving friend or family member, or simply to treat yourself this holiday season!
Backers who join the campaign at £6 get access to the pledge manager, an acknowledgement in the book, the festive campaign builder PDF and the Christmas Essentials ebook.
Stepping up to £25 adds in the printer-optimised version of essentials, three winter monsters, three festive races, five quick start profiles, three virtual tabletop battle maps with a festive theme, three festive tabletop tracks and 12 days of Christmas Magic items.
It’s as simple as that.
There’s a sampler of the audio files and links to the composer’s Spotify.
The estimated delivery is December this year. An important caveat is that version one of the ebook won’t have thank you names in it. That ruins that approach as a gift idea, but I presume Roll & Play Press have everything ready to go and simply can’t take a step back to update files if deadlines are to be met. Kickstarter backers aren’t always quick about filling in their details.
