About this project

99bfee61aecfe529edc3ec392843dbce_origina

The forest is a place of mystery and danger, where the wild things are lurking in the shadowed underbrush with hungry eyes, but also where the fair folk flit and fly through sun-dappled glades. From Grimm's fairy tales to Tolkien's lovely Lothlorien, menacing Mirkwood, and forlorn Fangorn, there are few places for adventure more iconic than among the tall trees and verdant vales of the forest!

In that spirit, Legendary Games is pleased to present a new hardback adventure accessory for the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game and 5E, the Forest Kingdom Campaign Compendium! Step under the shadowed boughs of the forest realm to find a wild world of magic, mystery, monsters, and more! From the misty boreal taiga of the cold northern reaches to wondrous glades of enchanting fey beauty, you'll find this book an encyclopedic resource for running your campaign, including:

- Two complete wilderness adventures: the savage barbarian epic Cold Mountain and a deadly fey pursuit in Horns of the Hunted!

- Over 50 new spells and magic items, from bloodspear and call woodland beings to the scout's spyglass, plow of the abundant harvest, and staff of the fey queen! 

- Three dozen new character options, including new sorcerer bloodlines, cavalier orders, feats, archetypes, and more, from Feral Companion and Silent Shade of the Umbral Wood to the fey hunter ranger and darkwolf druid!

- Over 30 new fey and forest monsters, from the boreal wight and stromkarl nixie to the mighty chernobog

- Eight ready-to-play pregenerated characters with detailed histories and personalities, perfect as allies, rivals, or playable PCs!

- Rich and immersive rules for fey-themed haunts and integrating fey into the campaign from personal relationships to world-altering faerie rumors, ripples, and ruptures that turn the natural world of mortals upside down!

The Forest Kingdom Campaign Compendium starts by combining the entire River Kings product line from Legendary Games into a single volume, edited and polished and many available in print for the first time, including all of the following products:

Beasts of Legend: Boreal Bestiary

Beasts of Legend: Coldwood Codex

Cold Mountain

Conquering Heroes: Pregenerated Characters

Faerie Mysteries

Faerie Passions

Horns of the Hunted

Legendary Villains: Dark Druids

Treasury of the Kingdom

These fantastic supplements by all-star authors like Jason Nelson, Matt Goodall, Tim Hitchcock, Neil Spicer, Todd Stewart, Russ Taylor, Alistair J. Rigg, Clinton J. Boomer, Julian Neale, N. Jolly, Tom Phillips, and Linda Zayas-Palmer are classics from Legendary Games and with them alone we could create a hardcover compilation of around 240 pages! All of the above material is complete and ready to go for both Pathfinder and 5th Edition! 

That would make a pretty cool book on its own, but we also have some amazing brand-new bonus content we have ready for our stretch goals below, which might well push this book over 300 pages! Almost all writing and art for these bonus goals is already complete, and even if we don't quite hit our stretch goals, these products still will be completed and will be available for purchase separately, but if we hit those goals all of his great bonus content will be included in the compilation and backers will be able to download the individual PDFs after the Kickstarter ends!

I find it interesting that the hardback is only $20 more than the PDF and it comes with the PDF.  me thinks they are trying to get their publishing numbers up for the print run. 

 

Doesn't look bad but I am not in the market for another campaign right now.  I wish them luck!

The problem with all the 5e sourcebooks (I dunno about Pathfinder) is that it's only good for homebrew. I'd consider buying something if it was AL legal, but if not, it effectively becomes useless - I have a ton of stuff I could convert without much effort, but seeing as I no longer have an actual gaming group, I play mostly organized stuff. I'd be interested in more stuff if there was a way around that.

As someone with a publishing background, I don't really have an issue with the price of the PDF. The cost to make it is exactly the same as the cost of a print book minus the paper and physical casing (cover). That's likely less than 20$, so you're probably getting a discount from the cost even if it doesn't seem like it.

      First time making an opening post for one of these, so if I do it wrong I'm sorry.

      Legendary Dragons: A 5e Supplement
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/782735675/legendary-dragons-a-5th-edition-supplement?ref=user_menu
       
      Red dragons, black dragons, green dragons, gold dragons. They are great, but we’ve seen them before.  What makes a dragon unique among all others of its kin? What is its history, what are its motivations, and most importantly, what makes it legendary? Legendary Dragons answers all this and much, much more!
      Jetpack7 aims to bring back the mystery to Dragons and to make an "ordinary" Dragon encounter... extraordinary!
      12 New Unique Legendary Dragons with Stretch Goals of up to 20 Dragons! We’re cooking up content for your 5th Edition game! You’ll not only have brand new Legendary Dragons and their lore to throw at your players, but some new monsters, too!
      New Dragons New Wyverns New Drakes New Hydras Not only will GMs and Players get 12+ Legendary Dragons (with the option for up to 20), we have some other dragon-related goodies that we are planning:
      New Kobolds New Dragon Races New Lairs Dragon Cults Dragon Riders Dragon Hunters Dragon Hunting Factions Dragon Hunting & Monster Hunting Economies New spell components you can only get by hunting Dragons Enhance existing spells with your new Dragon spell components Dragon hoard Items Dragon Tactics and how to use Dragons effectively in your game! Aerial Combat Options And much, much more… Legendary Dragons is estimated to be at least 100+ pages.
      We also teamed up with some of the best 5E writers in the biz!

      In Legendary Dragons, you can bet on seeing many full-color, full-page, high-quality art pieces produced with the same care and attention as our other supplements.

      Hi all, 
       
      I feel a bit bad that this is my first post here on Reaper Forum advertising a kickstarter. I used to go by the Moniker Kaybee or Kaybee81 (can't remember) but as I'm known as beefcake on other fora I thought it best to go by the same name everywhere. Anyway here is a link to some STL files for purchase.


      The Wizard's Tower contains stackable tower sections to create your own unique Wizard's Tower. 
      Files have been scaled for 28mm miniatures but, as with all 3d printable files, you have the ability to scale them up or down to suit your gaming needs.
      The initial reward consists of 7 different modular tower pieces and a ladder. All of which have been created on Blender, run through a repair tool, to check for any non-manifold parts and other errors, and printed.

      [li]Tower roof[/li]
      [li]Single window tower section[/li]
      [li]Tower section with door[/li]
      [li]Tower bridge (2 bridge sections link together)[/li]
      [li]Double window tower section[/li]
      [li]Windowless tower section[/li]
      [li]Tower base[/li]
      [li]and a ladder[/li]

      [/li]
      [/list] All for NZD $10 (roughly USD $6.80)
       
      The tower pieces can be oriented in almost any direction to provide a different look each time you game.
