isFriday has a Kickstarter for a campaign setting compatible with 5e and the Core Fantasy Roleplaying rules from Kobold Press’s Project Black Flag.
The Vineyard RPG explores the baddies with a queer undead mob campaign guide. It’s a Forward Fund Kickstarter, which means it passes some of the funding on, and a Project We Love from the team there, but it also has a target of $50,000 to hit in about three weeks. You can find out more on the pitch page.
Sexy villains, gross and mysterious villains and nine in total, the heart of The Vineyard project are the baddies.
Each villain comes with a bio, stat block, lair, some dialogue samples, and plot hooks to weave them into the drama in your game, and each is accompanied by gorgeous art.
In the setting, the Vineyard is a fantasy corporation that’s the public-facing aspect of a new Undead God of Secrets. Terrifying undead powers come from signing a contract, and the guide seems like a hustle culture take on gothic horror.
Guide your players to join the undead corporation, fight them, or destroy everything in their path on their way to mutual destruction. Shape the City as your table picks a side in the political struggle between the living, the undead, or the never-sated magical darkness of the Rot below. Our book is a resource for all GMs who want to spend less time prepping and more time terrifying your players.
Backers at $40 get the PDF edition of The Vineyard, about £33. Then, at $50, the digital edition is a virtual tabletop module for either Foundry VTT or Roll20.
There’s worldwide shipping available for backers at $65 who unlock the Vineyard hardcover as a reward.
After that, there are bundles, with $80, offering both the PDF and a VTT module or the PDF, hardcover and the Alchemy RPG module.
$100 unlocks all four; one VTT, one PDF, one hardcover and Alchemy,
The highest tiers are retailer options; one shopkeeper paid $500 to secure 11 copies.
isFriday estimates a delivery date of around April 2024.
