  1. The City that Dripped Blood An Adventure for Fifth Edition and Swords & Wizardry! Frog God Games is proud to announce The City that Dripped Blood, the first in a four part series centered in and around the city Temelpa. This mid-level adventure is written by D & D Legend Steve Winter, whose credits include over 30 years of best selling games, adventures, and supplements for some of the most popular RPG companies in the industry. He has played a part in many of the most beloved titles from Star Frontiers to the Fifth Edition rule books. He was a contributor most recently to the Frog God Games' Quests of Doom 4 series. Steve's incredible legacy and experience in the RPG world makes The City that Dripped Blood a perfect Indiegogo project debut title. Overview Temelpa, an ancient walled city on a forgotten trade route, thought to be abandoned ages ago, and now, the adventurers find themselves besieged within. Unable to leave their refuge, the adventurers will quickly discover the city is inhabited, not deserted as initially believed, by an ancient society. They will soon be embroiled in the affairs of a twisted caste system built on servitude and cannibalism and headed by an inter-dimensional vampiric overlord. This open-ended adventure allows the GM to unleash an array of unique monsters, factional power struggles, and intriguing plots upon the characters as they fight and scheme to stay alive, entrapped in a hostile city where they are viewed as useful pawns or a tasty exotic meal. Can the characters hold out until the siege is broken and escape with their lives? Will they champion the cause of the downtrodden and upend the social order? Or will they be the main course for the next cannibalistic feast? Welcome to the City! The Adventure The City That Dripped Blood - available in either Fifth Edition or Swords & Wizardry versions, is an adventure for mid-level characters inside you will find- New creatures and new variants NPC Cultists and unusual citizens are spread across various districts and factions. All under the shadow of the two ziggurats which stand menacing guard over the decrepit. desert city where the player characters begin. Options for and potential hooks are provided, but the design lends itself to modifications, GM tailored for their ongoing campaigns. The Tiny Print Run Why Indiegogo? Frog God Games is testing a new approach with the launch of this project- almost the inverse of how we design our crowdfunding projects on Kickstarter. We call it the 'Tiny Print Run'. Thus, Indiegogo projects by Frog God Games will- Be short in duration Be limited to a single title Have options priced between $5-$30 Have simple fulfillment process that does not use Backerkit Since 2012 our crowdfunding approach has been extravagant in every way. Ambitious with massive page counts, plus numerous add-on options and stretch goals. All supporting a primary title itself as many as 990 pages. This has resulted in Kickstarter's with memorable pledge rewards that include top-quality hardcover books with sometimes dozens of stretch goal bonuses and add-on extras. These are awesome AND they are expensive. Is Frog God Games giving up on Kickstarter? No. Far from it, in fact these smaller projects are happening in response to the feedback we have heard from both fans and 'almost' fans alike. We hear the request for less expensive options for our projects and products all the time. A second frequent desire expressed to us, whether at conventions, on social media or in email, is for a larger selection of smaller, faster-paced adventures that can be completed in 2-3 sessions and not necessitate a full two year campaign. Additionally, Frog God Games has grown in both sales and audience awareness. This opportunity will give us the additional resources to invest in the very best books in all of our formats. Thus we have launched the first of, what we hope are frequent, 'Tiny Print Run' campaigns on Indiegogo. Project Reward With the wishes of the fans in mind, this and future Indiegogo projects will fund standalone projects that are both affordable and fun. This project, as well future Tiny Print Run projects, is narrowly focused. This meansThe City that Dripped Blood will only have two reward options- 1. A softcover, full-color copy of The City that Dripped Blood which is at least 24 pages long and includes the PDF version or 2. The City that Dripped Blood in PDF There will be no paid add-on options and all additional funds raised focus on making the highest quality module the funding can buy. Supporters will select a rules system when they make the reward selection. For City that Dripped Blood that is a choice between Fifth Edition or Swords & Wizardry (other systems or system agnostic content is possible with future projects). As of the project launch The City that Dripped Blood manuscript is complete for Fifth Edition. It is currently being edited and converted to Swords & Wizardry. The module will be published, what is unknown is how much we raise to improve this release for everyone. What more supporters will mean for the project The level of quality we want to bring to The City of Dripped Blood is, at a minimum, similar softcover releases from larger companies. An example of this is a Wizards of the Coast Adventurer's League softcover. We have the potential to do even better and that is what 18 days will be focused on. The best way surpass our quality goal for every supporter (PDF only and/or Print and PDF) is- Commission more art from top artists Create more cartography pieces/offer more mapping resources Create PDF player handouts like creature cards or treasure maps Other options that are cutting edge and unique which only funding makes possible The first and most important is to invest in top-quality, custom color art beginning with the cover. At Frog God we have a dedicated gentleman named Casey Christofferson whose job it is to procure great art. His only constraint is his budget, which is were supporters like you come in. The biggest milestone will be upgrading from a planned half-page illustration to a full-page color cover by a top artist similar to the examples above. After we have enough funding for the cover we will add additional internal art pieces (possibly full page). Softcover Specific Goals The best paper we can afford. Glossy durable pages that showcase the art as it deserves. A thick, glossy cover stock Maps/charts/tables reprinted on the interior covers for reference (duplex cover printing) Signed copies and a few really special options if the funding really takes off NOTE ON AVAILABILITY: The softcover is likely to be a single print run. The number of units we print will be determined by how many supporters choose the The City of Dripped Blood softcover. We have no plans to offer the softcover for general sale after this project ends, so this is the best way to guarantee a copy for yourself in print. Shipping and Distribution Shipping is simple for those who select the a softcover copy of The City of Dripped Blood. Softcover Shipping $5 shipping fee will be added upon checkout for supporters in the United States. $15 shipping fee will be added upon checkout for supporters in the European Union, Australia, New Zealand and Canada. The PDF that comes with the softcover option will be fulfilled as outlined below. PDF Distribution The digital copies will be fulfilled using the Frog God Games Website. There will be no pledge manager so once the book or PDF is ready we will fulfill using contact information from Indiegogo. Link to project!
  2. Well I'm in. Looks like I'm getting the S&W version this time around.

    I have not received mine either.

    Rappan Athik 5th ed!

    We can only hope. Although, I'd expect Icebound, or an updated ToH, to be KS'ed first to gauge interest.

    Rappan Athik 5th ed!

    I've been ruining Northland Saga for over a year now, and the book still looks nearly new. This despite, playing (almost) once a week, and some admittedly casual abuse from use. Heck, my copy of the PF Tome of Horrors Complete looks equally as good, despite getting it way back when it was first published. It's seen even more usage over the years. I can't say the same for my copy of the PF Core book, It shows far more damage even though it's not even half as thick as either book. Books from Frog God may not be indestructible, but they come awfully close to it.
  6. I love the ships, and I'd use them, but I just can't afford to in on this one. Esp since I'd want several.

    Rappan Athik 5th ed!

    For my self, I'm in it for the PF update book. Although I am wondering how hard it'd be to convert 5ed to pathfinder form some of the stretch goal adventurers. Also I'd like an Art book. I don't normal go for Art books, I'd make an exception in this case. I asked, but their answer was "we'll see"

    Rappan Athik 5th ed!

    Link Ladies and Gentlemen, Boys and Girls! Gamers of all ages! Going down? Frog God Games is proud to present Rappan Athuk, THE DUNGEON OF GRAVES! The Granddaddy of all Megadungeons is back for Fifth Edition! Mock-up hardcover with actual cover design. Characters will test their mettle against puzzles, tricks, and traps a-plenty; test their grit and steel against monsters and foes lurking around every corner; and at the end of it all awaits the Big Daddy himself, Orcus. These are truly adventures worth winning. — “I once killed a man, just to watch him die” – a Man in Black — “Hold my goblet” – Orcus Interior mockup with actual pages from Rappan Athuk for Fifth Edition. Rappan Athuk is back for Fifth Edition. Not just back though, it is reloaded with all kinds of new extras including: All new, full color artwork Three new levels of the Dungeon itself Three new Wilderness locations, including a three-level castle A new three-level satellite dungeon A sea-cave of terrible shark-men! A Kickstarter exclusive level released from the Vault of Tsathogga! Updated color maps, available as separate PSD files for online play, are included for all levels Scores of NPCs and Monsters, dozens of Magic Items and Spells, and the legendary Dung Monster await you! Art comparison between 2012 and new edition. Weighing in at over 500 pages, Rappan Athuk for Fifth Edition is an instant classic in the Mega-Dungeon genre, featuring 100+ keyed and color mapped areas with over 56 dungeon levels, several satellite dungeons (almost 20 additional levels!), the village of Zelkor's Ferry, 22 wilderness areas (ways to die before you ever reach the dungeon) and seemingly countless groups of bandits and monsters that prey on those fortunate enough to escape the halls and caves of Rappan Athuk with treasure in hand! With decades of playtesting and use in campaigns across the globe, the Dungeon of Graves can be a foundation of any campaign or eviscerated into pieces and blended into any campaign! Map comparison between the two editions. Once upon a time, there was an idea—an idea formulated by Gary Gygax and Dave Arneson in 1974 and published in a little paperback book called Underworld Adventures. The idea was simple: it is a lot of fun to go into a dungeon and kill evil monsters. Why is the dungeon there? No one knows. Why do the monsters usually fight rather than talk? We aren’t really sure. Why are there 16 trolls in a cave with a jug of alchemy? No one cares. What do all the monsters eat? We don’t know that either (although “adventurer” probably tops the list). And we don’t have to know these things. This isn’t an ecology experiment, it’s a dungeon—the quintessential setting for pure swords and sorcery adventuring. This adventure pays homage to that original idea. True, there are opportunities for role playing, but most of this module is dedicated to “roll playing.” Hopefully, while exploring the halls of Rappan Athuk, you will recall the thrill of discovery, the terror in your heart when you fought your first skeleton, the joy of rolling your first natural 20, and the despair you felt when that 1 came up for your poison save. This module, Rappan Athuk—The Dungeon of Graves, is nothing more and nothing less than a good, old–fashioned, First Edition dungeon crawl updated for the 5th Edition Roleplaying Game. Very difficult, it should strike fear into the hearts of the most stalwart adventurers. It offers an abundance of traps, tricks, and monsters. We hope that you find this module as fun and exciting as those thousands of players who have ventured into (and not as often out of) the endless caverns and mazes of Rappan Athuk—The Dungeon of Graves. Rappan Athuk is a difficult dungeon. Even the upper dungeon levels should not be attempted by a party of less than six mid-level characters. Only truly veteran players should attempt this dungeon with lower level characters. In light of this, we added the satellite dungeons, including Bill's very first work (from 1977), Tunnels of Terror! This 9-area dungeon was used as the introduction to his campaign and led his players to Rappan Athuk through play.

    Makes me start thinking of getting a 3d Printer.

    Freya's Wrath: Dark Age & Fantasy 28mm Shieldmaidens

    I find this one very tempting, esp since I'm playing a Viking flavoured campain. I'll have to hit the remind button, and then see what I can afford.

    RPG Tablecloth II – An Innovative Battleground

    I finally broke down and pledged for two. Currently I'm eye-balling the Forsaken Sea, and Barren Wilderness. Oddly enough, they should be the right size for my dinning room table.

    GNL Mats by GameNightLife

    Me too. The only thing holding me back is that I really wanted the 1.25" mats, but 1" mats won't kill me. It's a hard choice either way.
  14. While I'm tempted, all I want are the city tiles. I think I'll have to wait for the retail launch.

    Tome of Horrors: Reborn for Fifth Edition

    Any time. I'm in this for the table top Tokens my self. However, if they get the cards unlocked I may go for that as well.
