And we are LIVE!!!



From the kobolds who brought you Empire of the Ghouls comes a brand-new dungeon-delving adventure, Scarlet Citadel for 5th Edition, launching on Kickstarter today!


Written by tabletop RPG luminary Steve Winter, Scarlet Citadel includes a sprawling adventure for 5th Edition in the classic style for 10 levels of play, fully compatible with the fifth edition of the world's oldest roleplaying game.


Original traps and new monsters lurk in the citadel's depths, as do magical mysteries and nefarious plots. Malevolent creatures spin shadowy webs, enchant foul magics, and summon forth dark gods. In Scarlet Citadel for 5th Edition, players will face harrowing foes, meet curious allies, and unearth the ancient treasures and secrets that lie scattered everywhere!


Along with this massive adventure, this Kickstarter project includes the Scarlet Citadel Map Folio. These ten beautiful, full-color, fold-out battle maps by cartographer Jon Pintar depict all levels of the dungeon and are perfect for tabletop RPG miniatures. Plus, the folio includes several smaller overlay maps that allow Game Masters to easily depict traps, hazards, and other unique features in the dungeon!

We're at about 128 pages or 144 pages right now (depending on edits and layout), with plans to add at least one more chapter and possibly 4 more chapters via stretch goals!

So if I wanted the PDF and the map pack I’d be looking at a $59 pledge, plus whatever shipping later for the maps?

I mentioned that one aspect of the Scarlet Citadel would be especially interesting to my fellow Reaper fans ...


The Scarlet Citadel Map Folio contains (at least!) 10 exquisite, full-color battle maps measuring 24 inches by 36 inches when unfolded, each overlaid with a grid of 1-inch squares perfect for miniatures!


In addition to the battle maps, we’re producing several 8-inch-by-10-inch overlay maps that can be placed atop the battle maps to depict unique traps, hazards, or other features of the dungeon. Take a look at the graphic below to see how they’ll work.

        It is 2159 and you are living on an Earth frozen by a man-made Ice Age. You are a member of the 4 man resupply crew arriving for your first day on the job at the World Exit Research Station. You’ll be joining one of the many research projects taking humanity to the stars.
      You are going to save the world, but not the way you expected to!
      Neo-Morphosis: Infestation is a Sci-Fi fast-paced fully co-operative survival game for 1-4 players. In this game, you and your colleagues must preserve the integrity of the research station from the alien creatures that overrun it while completing scenario objectives.  In campaign mode, you play through several connected scenarios while attempting to reach the truck located at the other side of the research station and escape from the creatures that infested it.

      Not as great as the first one so far. More expensive for less models. Not too fond of the buildings. The bosses seem lacking as well, though I like the water myrmidon. Some of the stretch goal unlocks haven't been shown yet, so it might look better once they do that.
