Dragonwars of Trayth- RPG- Tabletop Game (Canceled)
This project is to raise money for the publishing of this RPG adventure series with a stretch goal of funding the Gygaxian RPG Museum.
Each Module and Book in this campaign series will cost about $1,500 to bring to print vs. the usual 5k similar projects ask for each book. That's 25 Modules and 4 core books. By printing them all at once we save on printing costs so that we do not have to ask for more money to complete the series and we assure the entire adventure is produced.
Take a look at the story and see why ERNIE GYGAX says;
"A story driven adventure in a Tolkien-esque style...that makes me go for it more, dragons make it even better."
Veterans of the game have said;
"The most addicting and exciting adventure played in the last decade" ...Trevor S. (30yr RPG gaming veteran)
We listened to what the players and game masters have said they wanted in an adventure and applied it to the series. Take a look and you will see the high quality, attention to detail, and play-ability of the series.

Many in the gaming world owe their thanks to the creator of Dungeons and Dragons. Modern Gaming, even video games, would not be what they are today if it had not been for the creative efforts of the RPG celebrities who created the modern Role Playing Games.
We have located two potential sites in Lake Geneva,WI that would be excellent locations for the museum. The center of the Role Playing world would once again be where it all started. Neither of the locations are cheap but both would provide a place to collect and display personal collections and rare items relating to Role Playing Game history.
The RPG museum would contain galleries of unique items showing the creation process and evolution of the games. Not just Dungeons and Dragons but all genre of RPG’s would be memorialized in a way both educational and fun.The rich history of the games would be preserved for future generations.
As Ernie Gygax said “If we don’t do something to preserve it now its going to die off soon. Old school gamers are dying every day.”
The museum would be supervised by a board of directors which would include James Ward, Ernie Gygax, and other gaming and business professionals to ensure accuracy and quality for attendees.
The RPG Hall of Fame would have sections to memorialize its best designers, players, and artists. A full section for the best characters and stories behind them. The epic quests that no author would think of but our DICE and collaboration of minds experienced in the many hours of playing .
There will be something for everyone to appreciate: the players, GM’s, authors, artists, larpers, and designers.
Many of us owe our livelihoods and hour and hours of entertainment to RPG’s which all started with Ernies father. That creation spawned many more versions of RPG’s that millions of players enjoy every day.
The museum would host special events such as seminars with RPG authors and artists, theatrical re-enactments of epic scenes from the best RPG modules, and have a free gaming hall open every day for a chance to interact and play our favorite RPG games.
RPG’s are more than just a game. It a social experience unlike any other ever created in gaming. It allows people to think creatively, and cooperatively interact with each other to achieve a goal. It teaches us organizational skills, motivates kids to read, write, and use math. Also, develop the problem solving skills we use all our lives in many ways.
In the realm of our adventures we can be who we want to be without shame or ridicule and be equals on the playing field. The idea for a game system that allows a 7 year old kid to play a powerful wizard all began and grew from the RPG original designers in Lake Geneva, WI.
Support this Kickstarter to help make the dreams of many of us come true, to preserve our favorite games history for future generations.
Risks and challenges
The biggest challenge is our stretch goal, its a large amount but it can be done with your help.
The next challenge will be the building renovation to turn it into a museum. We have a team of experienced designers that have volunteered to help with that phase of the stretch goal.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
