I found out about Pepper & Carrot because of this RPG Kickstarter. It’s a great comic by David Revoy, that’s not only funded by patrons but is open-source and permissive. That’s to say you can use it for your own projects, even make money from them, if you give credit.
That seems to be what indie game developer Xacur is doing with Witchcraft: Magic of Hereva. There’s a Kickstarter to raise only MX$ 5,000 and, with 9 days still to pledge, there’s MX$ 31, 500 or so in the pot! You can follow progress on the campaign page.
It takes a pledge of MX$ 210 (about £9) to get a PDF of the RPG. There are no plans to go to paper, not at this stage.
This is a D&D 5e powered RPG which introduces the Witches of Hereva class and some sub-classes to support it.
The name Xacur might be familiar if you’re prone to keeping an eye on DM’s Guild best sellers. Xacur’s The Cursed Mountain adventure is a Copper Best Seller and The Book of Many Eyes – Beholders for 5e did even better, getting Silver status.
One of the great advantages in picking Pepper & Carrot as a charming world for this RPG is access to art. David Revoy makes plenty available and its all lovely.
