 A marathon is 26 miles, and 385 yards of hell! Now it's time to test your mettle. Lloyd Metcalf and Ric Martens bring you Marathon of Heroes!

Fighter, Magic user, Cleric, Thief. These are the four compass points and cornerstones of tabletop role playing games. Each with strengths and weaknesses that make them mortal, but also makes them HEROES!

 Here you may test your heroes, let them shine, and hone your party into a well-oiled machine. Here you will need to call back to the halcyon days when no one character could win, it took a team... a team of HEROES.

The great dragon Vatrastrom sleeps on a bed of treasure at the heart of a volcano surrounded by wicked minions. 

Miles away, Lord Fez gathers a group of adventurers to request their aid in ending the red menace. 

Before these brave heroes confront the dragon, they must first prepare by facing challenges that hone their skills as individuals and as a team.

Many have attempted confronting Vatrastrom, but none have lived to claim the great prize of the wyrm’s hoard. Will your champions be the ones to complete the Marathon of Heroes?

Marathon of Heroes is a 36-38 page adventure module for the Fifth Edition of the world's favorite roleplaying game for 4-6 Level 5 characters based in the Lands of Lunacy setting from Fail Squad Games. It can be played in any setting with minimal adjustment. Marathon of Heroes is intended to be played over multiple sessions (Typically 4) but may run longer if used with "interlude" side quests.

      I’ve backed their previous two Kickstarters and their stuff, while a bit simplistic, is quite excellent. Made in USA with all the minimal carbon footprint, etc.

      Hi, we're Crow Land Publishing, and here's our first book, Wickerpunk. A supplement book for Dungeons and Dragons 5th Edition, with application for all fantasy and horror games, such as Pathfinder, Call Of Cthulhu and even superhero games, like Champions. It will be 275 pages.
      Folk horror – horror and supernatural fiction that relies on elements of the past, folklore, superstition, the dreadful majesty of nature, the darkest urges of old religion. And old gods. Where the landscape itself is a symbol of fear and dark majesty. 

Heroic fantasy – a dream of blades and magic, a dream of defiance of the dark powers of the world, where we can be our truest ideals of our self. 

And when these genres collide – we have Wickerpunk.  A genre in which the ancient and natural world of the Wyld meets the imperialist world of Industry.
      If you like film such as Gawain and the Green Knight, Dragonslayer and The VVitch, you'll like our book.
      If you like games such as Maiden of Sker, Greedfall, and Hellblade, you’ll like our book. 

If you like anime such as Princess Mononoke, The Ancient Magus’ Bride and Faery Gone, you’ll like our book.
      If you like TV shows such as The Witcher, Game of Thrones, (especially the White Walkers stuff!) and the classic 1980s Robin of Sherwood, you’ll like our book. 
      If you like novels such as The Mists of Avalon, The Dark Is Rising and The Broken Sword, you’ll like our book. 
      Wickerpunk is a sourcebook that instructs GMs and players alike on what wickerpunk looks like in a game of D&D or any fantasy roleplaying game.

      If you're a fan of the weird west, take at look at the Doomtown card game. New cards are in the set, and the KS will have promos and whatnot for the more hardcore fans. The base set has enough cards for multiplayer play, as well as tournament. The base set will also be available retail.
       
      "Back Doomtown: Weird West Edition in the first 24 hours to receive 2x Faster on the Draw promos! Everyone will have access to additional promos in the pledge manager!"
      Deputies are a keyword, most often found in the Law Dog faction.

      Story
       The unique miniature as a gift to all who back us in the first 12 hours once the campaign is live! (Starter Box+)
      It's time to add a new page to the Signum chronicle!
      Meet the Scarlet Forest Clan - a brand new faction for the skirmish wargame with miniatures "Legends for Signum".
      The Cataclysm hit the Eastern islands really hard. After earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, and tsunamis, which enough shocked the island inhabitants, bunches of muggers from the continent struck the lands. As a result of this terrifying period, the Shogun power has been weakened, and the clans themselves started internecine wars.
      But some looked beyond their own ambitions. Being a wise, standing out race, Kitsune have always considered themselves the chosen of the gods and the keepers of ancient knowledge. The sorceress princess, the new chosen one of the goddess Amaterasu is now willing to reunite the country again, calm the nature spirits, and fight back greedy foreigners. Every day more and more warriors, inspired by her message, decide to join the side of Princess Fumiko and the whole world will feel the power of swords and the secret magic of Kitsune very soon.
      Go ahead and join the battle thus creating your own legend in "Legends of Signum".
      We introduce a completely new side in the never-ending series of fantasy conflicts of the Signum World. The starter set "Kitsune Clan of the Scarlet Forest" includes 4 highly detailed resin miniatures of characters plus a set of support cards and game components - everything you need to immerse in the fantasy clash in the skirmish wargame "Legends of Signum".
