Following the successful crowdfunding of Folklore – Tales of These Isles, a book of illustrated folk tales by Hannah Mosley, and one particular copy reaching Tom Kremer, we now have FOLKLORE – The Wild Hunt on Kickstarter.
Tom Kremer is a creative director and DM, so has partnered up with Hannah to turn these stories and art, plus some new material, into a whimsical bestiary of friends and foes for D&D’s 5e. It looks gorgeous, has already hit funding goals and is still taking backers.
As the funding goal is long clear, Hannah and Tom should now push on with 200 pages of D&D-okay folk horror and whimsy, an odd mix but quite British.
In particular, The Wild Hunt offers up;
- 110 of Hannah’s illustrations
- More than 80 creatures (and we’re told these range from the fluffy and friendly to the fearsome and fiendish)
- 90+ statblocks (from CR 1/4 to CR 15)
- More than two playable races
- More than two quick tales encounters
- Boons, Banes and Powers for each creature
- Lore inspired by UK and Celtic tales
- Printed on uncoated 100gm quality paper, on a Heidelberg SM XL106 High-Quality Litho Printing, in hardcover with a gloss laminated cover
Curious? There’s a free-to-download 24-page sample.
Backers can support the storytime nerd and cryptid wrangler for any amount of cash or sharing the campaign around, and for £17, there’s a digital download of FOLKLORE – The Wild Hunt as a reward.
At £33, the hardcover book is added, and despite these fairies now coming from Brexit Britain, the team are offering worldwide shipping.
This blogger is wrestling with Wild Hunt temptation and eying up the £43 tier, which adds postcards (10) too. At £45, there are no postcards but a poster instead.
Next, a big jump to £533 to get a custom illustration. If that sounds a lot, the £333 tier for a hand-sized tattoo option has sold out.
Tom and Hannah estimate a delivery around November for the physical goodies and October for the digital download.
