Ali Ribelli Edizioni is a thoroughly well-established Italian publisher with hundreds of titles and international distribution deals. Imagine if they did RPGs too.
With “La Notte Eterna”, Ali Ribelli Edizioni is doing 5e, and the Kickstarter community seems to love being doomed. There are still three weeks to fund, and the €4K funding goal is now a distant memory as more than €25K has been pledged. You can join in or watch the numbers tick up on the project page.
La Notte Eterna will be available in both English and Italian.
Want a flavour? There’s a free to download quickstart for the epic-fantasy and all-consuming darkness.
The rules bring in 15 subclasses, roles like the Chosen of Darkness, North Wolf, Storm Herald and Infernal Acolyte. There are 4 new backgrounds: Meteor Hunter, Seafarer, Bloody Bolt and Archivist.
There are also 3 new races, 50 new magic items and 7 new mechanics. A lot? You bet. The book will be over 400 pages, and it won’t be alone.
The Kickstarter also funds Heroes & Creatures and The Song of Nebvarasa, which is an extension full of gods and legendary monsters.
The sun has been swallowed up by darkness and the world of Neir has plunged into an eternal night. The ancient mortal realms have been wiped away by hordes of undead, and a harsher and crueler order has risen from their ashes. In these devastated lands, brave adventurers defy unknown terrors with powerful new weapons that glow in the darkness, calling upon the power of True Magic and summoning heroes of old to fight beside them. Will you be the star that shines in the night or the freezing darkness that smothers the flames?
The core rules, a bonus book and a poster – all in PDF, digital stretch goals and access to the pledge manager unlock at €25 (about £23).
At €60, the hardcover core rules and STL files for minis are added.
The physical goodies grow again at €85 with the print edition of the poster and the When Angels Cry bonus book added, but there’s also a PDF of a second bonus book and a new PDF poster.
Hardcovers of the core rules, Heroes 7 creatures, the GM screen, posters, and the first bonus book unlock at €140, and the campaign tops out a few tiers later at €300. There’s plenty on offer!
Whether you plunge into the darkness or tip a toe, you’ll have to wait until February for the estimated delivery date. However, you might want to move to back more swiftly than that, as there are limited edition tiers too.
