Geek Native will find a lot of time for Johnn Four of Roleplaying Tips.com. Four has contributed hugely to the online RPG community and written many books. His first Kickstarter, The Demonplague, asks for just CA$2,500 and its very close to making that target. At the time of writing there are two weeks still on the clock and you can follow progress at this campaign page.
Pledge tiers are interesting as CA$12 gets you the first part of the series in PDF. I guess this is the toe in the water stage… but that assumes you’re interested enough to back the Kickstarter but not fully sold on the whole concept. Hmm. I guess that explains why, right now, there are zero backers at that level. Step up to CA$30 and you get all four parts of The Demonplague campaign in PDFS (on-screen and printer friendly) and other goodies – including immediate access to the finish drafts.
GM? Need some material straight away that your players haven’t seen? The CA$30 (which is about £17) seems to be the one for you.
As you might expect from a Johnn Four product The Demonplague has been carefully thought about from a GM point of view. New GMs should benefit from the initial simple structure of a classic linear game that carefuly evolves into more complex and better styles. On other hand, veteran GMS are not shackled and can launch straight into the best of the hexcrawl and sandbox.
There are four parts of this;
- The Demonplague Part I: The Frozen Necromancer
- The Demonplague Part II: The Winter Drui’d Legacy
- The Demonplague Part III: Icefall
- The Demonplague Part IV: Xancrown’s Prison
I’m not a backer. I’ve not read the finished drafts but I can see a certain theme coming out in those names. That chilly connection is reflected in the art too.
This is an epic campaign that’ll take characters from 1st to 20th level. It offers 27 NPCs, flly written up, a fully-stocked village and 21 new monsters for D&D 5e. There’s even a 12 hour video which lets you look behind the scenes.
