Inevitability will pay a visit on Wednesday.

I will provide more info than you ever wanted or needed at that time but until then I figured everyone needed to see the ad with our spokes-model selling Lesser Gnome RPGs.

I find the ads with her in them are most effective. Nothing says authentic old-school like a women half most of our ages wearing a handsome logo t-shirt.

At least that is what Bad Mike told me.

I backed this today, only 3 days left. Slumbering Ursine Dunes by Hydra Collective — Kickstarter

This is a campaign setting and adventures product from the creator of the Hill Cantons blog - Chris Kutalik.

I have played in this campaign via google + and skype and Chris is a talented writer and old school gaming enthusiast. He recently attended NTX PRGCON and ran this at the CON.

After keeping my nose out of Kickstarters for a while, I've been dragged back in.  I managed to grab one of Thom's collector/player levels before they were all gone.  I also backed Slumbering Ursine Dunes.  And when I backed that one, it showed a link to this:

De Horrore Cosmico - Six Scenarios for Cthulhu Invictus. by Oscar Rios — Kickstarter

Cthulhu in Roman times . . . what could be better than that?  Only 14 hours to go if you're interested.

Greetings all,

Lesser Gnome, my company, has launched its second Kickstarter project Death & Taxes. It is a box set adventure for old-school systems. It was written referencing the Labyrinth Lord system but it is designed to be as system neutral as possible. It will also be available in hardcover, interactive PDF and an old-school module version in order to have an affordable option for everyone. There is a miniatures only option as well.

Death & Taxes is Lesser Gnome's stand-alone follow-up box set to Whisper & Venom. It was nominated for an ENnie, for those of you who are into that sort of thing. Twice! (we didn't win, Monte Cook & Paizo beat us :) ) It was also delivered on time and with all components as promised in its Kickstarter project.

The project page is here- http://kck.st/1rhgFJG

Death & Taxes is an adventure for 4-7 players using characters level 4-6. Although designed for classic rules, the ultimate goal is to create total conversions of the game for popular modern systems while retaining old-school sensibilities.  We did this last time very successfully with a well-received Pathfinder conversion.

At the funding level of $8000 (we are 78% there already with 30+ days to go) Death & Taxes includes-

Image

Once the initial funding goal for project is reached all options are on the table. It is easier to show you what I mean using our last Kickstarter finish as an example-

Image

More written content, more quality art, many more custom made figurines (I would love to make all 25+ that are already planned encounters) are waiting to be unlocked. Truly massive maps (by Alyssa Faden who did the regional maps for Whisper & Venom) are planned. Other options include encounter cards and other physical items that enhance actual game play (Coins are an example).

Here are the early stretch goals that show the already in production figurines-

Image

We want to make the most deluxe box available for fans of old-school RPGs that is built on a foundation of solid writing and design. The purpose is to have non-linear adventure locations with morally serious adversaries. Well-developed monstrosities exist but are not integral to the experience. The entire product can be played through focusing on political machinations or on with more traditional play experiences without missing out on any material.

Examples of our work, including fully playable excerpts, of our previous work can be found in non-watermarked PDF format here-

Images of the already completed sculpts for the stretch goals can be seen at -http://lessergnome.com/dtminis/.

I wanted to also give a thanks to those of you who already pledged. Early pledges mean a great deal to the projects overall trajectory and final numbers. Your early support make it that much more likely we can do a box set like Whisper & Venom again. It is a huge deal to us and especially to me personally that you contributed early and generously.

Thanks,

Zach

Zach,

So, the $30 retro option isn't avaialble unless you back at the $200 level?  This means it's not available as a stand alone option although it is listed in the Backer Pledge Level section?

*** 3rd Update *** - The project is nearly 50% funded!   Hopefully, a few more Acaeumites will consider backing it... if the project meets goal, I do plan on sending a few down to NTRPGCon for the auctions.

Thanks!
