Tales of the Old Margreve 5e by Kobold Press

Recommended Posts

Forests in fantasy roleplaying games are dark places, full of secrets. With this project, we bring the Old Margreve to the 5th Edition of the world's most popular RPG. The Margreve is an ancient, enchanted forest that defends itself from those who come to cut its timber, poach its creatures, or steal its magic. Within its borders the Old Ways are strong, the word of the druids carries great weight, and griffons, dragons, and stranger creatures nest and hunt, undisturbed by humans, dwarves, or other lordlings.  

Until your adventuring party shows up. Then things get really interesting.

The Margreve Kickstarter offers three main elements: 

1) the Tales of the Old Margreve adventure campaign hardcover for the GM, with adventures from levels 1 to 10

2) a Margreve Player's Guide softcover book of new player options, including new races, druid and ranger subclasses and tools, backgrounds, and forest-themed spells.

3) (if unlocked) a set of thick cardboard standups, the Margreve Pawns, which are similar to those created for Tome of Beastsand the Creature Codex. Here is a small sample of what that would look like; we anticipate producing 150 to 200 pawns (depending on stretch goals).

Together with some book-expanding stretch goals, this project provides new deep-forest character options and a full sequence of adventures to draw adventurers into the wilderness and keep them on their toes.

 

WHY KICKSTART THIS?

Initially we debated this as a softcover adventure collection, but we soon realized that it was large enough and compelling enough to make into a hardcover volume playable in 5th Edition fantasy campaigns, together with a player supplement. Why not go big?

Kobold Press is doing something a little different with its digital offerings this time. We're putting our effort into the two print books, and possibly a custom set of pawns—and digitally, full sets of virtual tabletop (VTT) files. That means that we'll have the Old Margreve adventures and source material available on Roll20 and on Fantasy Grounds shortly after the hardcover and softcover volumes ship. 

With terrific map management, full suites of digital tokens, pre-set monster stats, and more, virtual tabletops make it easier than ever to just sit down and play. The VTT packages for the Old Margreve will be extensive and include everything provided in the print edition—plus the flexibility and speed of online play. We're partnering directly with Roll20 and Fantasy Gournds, two of the leading VTT companies, to make these digital versions complete and powerful.

 

Contributors

The designers on this project include lead designer Matt Corley plus contributing designers Dan Dillon, Jon Sawatsky, James Introcaso, and Wolfgang Baur

They build on earlier Margreve work by Richard Pett, Ben McFarland, Tim & Eileen Connors, Dan Voyce, Michael Furlanetto, Wolfgang Baur, and others.

Shipping costs from the US to anywhere outside North America have risen sharply in recent years, so we are once again partnering with groups in Canada, in the EU, and likely in Australia (depending on the volume of backers there), and if so then Kobold Press will pay customs and import duties for those packages. 

Our best guess for those Canada-friendly and EU-friendly costs right now are roughly $22 shipping for Canada and roughly $30-and-a-bit for shipping to the EU. We do not have an Australia estimate yet.

To calculate shipping to your location from the US, you can use the US Postal Service calculator and assume a Medium size flat rate box:  https://postcalc.usps.com/

The Pathfinder version of The Old Margreve is excellent - and really fun to spring on nine and ten year old players. :devil:

 

I've run with the setting twice - once with kids, once with grown ups.

Just passed $50K, which unlocked not one but TWO Stretch Goals!
 
Even better, the next Stretch Goal is pretty darn cool: 
Decades ago, when the game of D&D was young, a man named Dennis Sustare created a class that lives on to this day: the Druid. Indeed, Gary Gygax was not the creator of the druid class, but we have good news. Dennis Sustare has agreed to join us in creating brand-new spells, items, and even a new subclass for the 5th edition druid. New druid material by the guy who created the class for D&D? Only the mystical forest can hold such wonders.
 
We want to make this happen, but we can only do it with your support. Help us break through to this mind-bogglingly cool stretch goal!

 

850 backers and counting!!

$55 Stretch Goal reached!! Dennis Sustare, creator of the original Druid class, is creating brand-new spells, items, and even a new subclass for the 5th edition druid.

 

Learn more from the man himself!

Backed this for the main book. I could definitely use this for a game idea I have planned for the future.

      About this project
      The Secret of Innsmouth. Act Three: Metamorphosis!
      This campaign features new sculpts that will, if the campaign is successful, join the existing Mythos range of 28mm scale white metal miniatures from Blind Beggar Miniatures..
      Whereas the first two Acts demonstrated the first stages of transformation into the Hybrid, this sequel features the final stages of the Metamorphosis from Hybrids into full blown Deep Ones.
      This campaign will allow for the Hybrids released in Acts One and Two, and the Dark Clergy, to be added to your Pledge if you choose to. .
      Alongside the Deep Ones and Hybrids there is also the chance to get your hands on the human populace of Innsmouth. These could represent the 'untainted' members of the population or, alternatively, Government Agents or Investigators who are attempting to eliminate this activity in this cursed coastal region.
      Act Three: The Deep Ones of Innsmouth.
       
       
       
       
      As you can see from the pictures above, the transformation from Hybrid to Deep One moves slowly through various stages. The process of metamorphosis means the loss of their more 'human-like' features that are still in existence in the earlier Hybrid phases. These features begin to disappear as they gradually take on the semblance of the creatures of Dagon and become Deep Ones and take to the water. 
      As Deep Ones age they continue to grow and become much larger and bulkier as they reach Ancient One status.

      Because it’s never too early for Christmas themed kickstarters...

      Skirmish game and miniatures for a post apocalyptic world.

      Mini selection is a little confusing and I’m unsure if individual minis can be ordered separately... but I’m pretty sure I saw Dastardly and Muttley in there along with Penelope Pitstop, so this has my attention.
       
      Plus giant mutant ants and scorpions. Damn dirty apes on horseback. Motorcycle gangs and a cast of dozens.

      Just a backer, not associated with BSG otherwise, but thought that people might be interested in this for samurai goodness:
