This project is to develop, print and playtest a new Campaign Setting and System Supplement that is compatible with D&D 3.5/Pathfinder.
What is this project?
This project has two separate parts:
First, we plan to develop, playtest, and release our own D20 system supplement (TBR 20). Second, we intend to also release an entirely new Campaign Setting. The setting and system will be included together in one place, but our intention is to make the setting easily usable with the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game, D&D 3.5, or our new TBR 20 system.
Once the development and playtesting has been finished, we intend to make both the rule system and the Campaign Setting available for free in PDF form. In addition, both will be available for purchase as a soft cover book.
About the System:
The TBR 20 system is intended to build upon the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game rules to support more cinematic and epic feeling game play.
Features of the TBR 20 system
· Custom Class Creation
· New Injury System
· Weapon Groups
· Separate Rules for Villains and Minions
· Background System
About the Campaign Setting:
The Campaign Setting is set on Sael, a continent devastated by centuries of war. Four great wars threaten to uproot every nation. It is time for heroes to save the day.
Features of the Campaign Setting:
· History of the Continent Sael
· Information on the Races of Sael
· Information of the Nations of Sael
· Details on the Great Wars that are tearing Seal apart
Where is the money going?
Out of the thousand dollars we are asking for, about 10% ($100) will go to paying fees for Kickstarter and for the credit card processing. Another 30% ($300) will be used to purchase the books being offered as rewards for backers. The rest of the money will be used to get maps professionally created and to host the rules once we release them as PDF.
· 10% Fees
· 30% Rewards
· 10% Web Hosting
· 50% Maps and Art
If additional funds are donated, we will use them to secure more artwork and get started on the next installments for the Campaign Setting.
Who are we?
Troll Baked Goods is a brand new business operating in Springfield, Missouri. This is our first project, and if it is successful we have much more planned for the future.
We are gamers, plain and simple. We want to make great games for our fellow gamers.
Part of this project’s goal is to successfully playtest the TBR 20 system supplement. Anyone who backs at least $5 toward our project will be able to receive and participate in our play testing scenarios and will be able to give feedback on the system. In addition all play testers that wish to be acknowledged in the PDF and Book will be.
Remember, you can change the amount you wish to donate at any time. Kickstarter even allows you to withdraw a pledge if you need to. So if you’re on the fence, you have nothing to lose by offering a $5 pledge and glancing through the play test scenario. Below you will find dates by which we hope to update certain parts of the drive, we will make more information available as we can:
· Playtest Phase 1 Release: March 31st
In addition, we will constantly be adding information on the continent of Sael and the system in the updates section. Some of the smaller bits will be viewable to everyone, but $1 will get you access to the backer only updates where we will be including most of the setting information.
Have a question? If the info above doesn't help, you can ask the project creator directly.
