The Origins of the Lost Lands

For almost 20 years, glimpses into the world of the Lost Lands have been revealed in the publications of Frog God Games and Necromancer Games. The Lost Lands contain locations now legendary in the annals of roleplaying, from the depths of the massive dungeons of Rappan Athuk, to the city of Bard’s Gate, the Desolation of Tsar, the Blight, the demon-tainted Sundered Lands, the chaotic tumult of the Borderland Provinces, and the fabled Northlands. These publications offered hints of the sweeping scope, deep history, and epic grandeur of the Lost Lands.  But only hints.

For well over a decade, a Lost Lands campaign world has been our customers' most requested project...

...and the time of the Lost Lands has now arrived!

The Primary Reward

Over 42 years in the making, this is the definitive guide to the world of the Lost Lands!

This massive volume includes the history of the Lost Lands, a wealth of detailed maps, cultural information about its nations and peoples, and a huge gazetteer containing descriptions of the world's countries, cities, waterways and geography. For the first time, readers can explore the length and breadth of the great continent of Akados, including regions never before described, and far Libynos, home of the Desert Kingdoms and many ancient cultures alien to the folk of Akados.

The book weighs in at approximately 700 pages in full color, with maps by award-winning cartographers and beautiful, original artwork to place you directly into the world itself in all its glory and terror.

Entirely system-neutral, the guide can be used with any game system you choose.

The Lost Lands are the setting for a tremendous array of over 150 individual adventures and sourcebooks already published by Frog God Games and Necromancer Games, many providing statistics in multiple game systems. All of this material is available to provide an almost inexhaustible resource of ready-made adventures and epic quests! Future Frog God Games products set in the Lost Lands will be built into the ever-growing canon finally revealed in this volume.

A small sample of some of these already-existing adventures include Rappan Athuk, Sword of Air, Slumbering Tsar, Bard's Gate, Necropolis, Cyclopean Deeps, The Borderland Provinces, The Blight, and Cults of the Sundered Kingdoms.

Authors of adventures which have, over two decades, explored the Lost Lands include Clark Peterson, Ed Greenwood, Bill Webb, Gary Gygax, Matt Finch, Jim Ward, Morten Braten, Jeff Harkness, John Stater, Bill Kenower, Nate Paul, Dennis Sustare, and Alex Kammer.

700 pages of setting goodness.

And in case of an intruder, I can hurl the book at 'em and likely knock 'em out. Plus the book will be none the worse - the Frog Gods do a really good job about binding their books.

 

While I'm not sure my Frog God shelf can take the weight, I'll likely back this one.

 

As for the huge price to ship overseas, they state in the Kickstarter that due to the increase rate of damage to the books when sent to overseas addresses, they will be double-boxing the books, as well as insuring the books.  They offer a 100% resend policy, so they've got to make the money somewhere, and that somewhere is in the shipping.

Sounds really cool, I have a lot of the Frog God modules already so I probably would have gone in on this if it wasn’t for the UK shipping. Which there’s no excuse for- they must be shipping these individually from the US for that price to be accurate, get a UK/EU hub and then we’ll talk.

The most expensive box I've ever tried to ship overseas was via UPS and initially quoted at $1300.  We decided the customer didn't need their sample that quickly and used overseas freight to get the price down in the $800 range. 

 

- The product sample was a super fluffy material so it was a big box that had such little weight anyone could pick it up.

I am seriously considering backing this.  If I was to run a 5E campaign I would set it in the lost lands.  Its expensive though, but I did just get a bonus check from work (and sadly a huge unexpected tax bill too).

Holy crap, I have to give them credit for thinking outside the box - the $75,000 stretch goal was opening up the setting to third parties. A free license - also allowing people to expand on any Frog God products in the setting that are older than 18 months.

 

So, if I decided that Rappan Athuck really needs ten more levels, for example.... ::P:

 

And that stretch goal has already been left in the dust.

      As I eagerly await the arrival of my Bones 4 order... A Kickstarter to put all your Reaper minis to use!!!
       
       
      It all started with wanting a good old-fashioned dungeon crawl, but in an easy to play board game that had flexibility in exploration and was challenging. I had a multitude of minis, so did not need to spend extra money on the available board games that included all of those minis and pieces to the point of the game costing hundreds of dollars and bloated rules to where picking up a casual game with friends was nearly impossible. Why was there not a role-playing board game with easy to understand rules, super quick to set up and unlimited flexibility to make my own campaigns, use my own minis and even print the material, board, terrain and furniture as needed?
      Welcome to Cavern Quest Warriors – the RPG board game where you choose one of six characters with unique abilities on a quest in search of adventure and treasure. Choose a Warrior/Fighter, Barbarian/Berserker, Cleric/Monk, Rogue/Thief, Wizard/Magic-User or an Archer/Ranger. All games pieces are designed to be printed on either paper or simple card stock (e.g. 110 lb. index) – just print what you need along with the basic rules, special cards and campaign module that includes the floor plan, creature stat panel, individual room/floor tiles and use your own minis to embark on a quest with your friends. The Cavern Master will guide the play for maximum challenge and enjoyment for the characters along with movement and battle for all creatures, keeping it enjoyable for everyone. Each campaign module gives the Cavern Master complete instructions on how to guide the players through each room and what creatures and events they will encounter. While this concept is not entirely new, the method and delivery concept are. By providing all documents electronically, you save money by printing yourself - no need to spend hundreds of dollars to get what ends up being an enormous board game.
       
      The basic rules are quick and easy to learn, yet always challenging and allow for character expansion in all abilities through experience gained. The magic system is unique to ensure a varied and changing set of magic skills as wizards progress. New players can jump in at any time and at any level, with our set skill system for characters – no need to start at the bottom!
       
      KS pledges start at $12. Check out our Kickstarter live now: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/mdsw/cavern-quest-warriors

      OK, Heroes Super Chibi Villains is now live! You can head over to Kickstarter via this link to check it out.
       
      http://tinyurl.com/y22q93kj
       
      This Kickstarter is very special to us. It’s the first time we will be focusing on the evil side of the Super Chibi universe and it’s the first time that 95% of the character was designed and drawn by Brian “Natakue” Saunders himself.
      We are also doing something different this time around to test interest. We have included a digital pledge this time around for the .stl files of the minis. This is for those of you out there who want to print your own minis. We know 3d printing Is an ever-growing market and well, we want to see if Super Chibi can be one of the items people want to print on their personal printers. You can also print these files from any company or retailer who provides printings services. Just to name a few there is Impact Miniatures, Shapeways and much more. Right now this is a Kickstarter only deal but if there is interest we will look into making this a standard pledge in all the upcoming Kickstarters and possibility adding this option to our online store.
       
      So with that said we want to say thank you for supporting us and we will see you at the end of the Kickstarter.
