Hello,

    Thank you for taking the time to read about my project.  Blackbyrne Publishing has been in business since 2009 and produced adventures compatible with the 4th Edition Dungeons & Dragons and Pathfinder RPG games. The adventures released so far are set in a world of my own creation, Braugh (pronounced "brow"), specifically the continent of Thallorand. The world is not ruled by kings, but self-proclaimed Lords and their decedents.  Plagued by years of war and Orc invasion, Thallorand is just now beginning to rise up and dust itself off and "excavation" work is cropping up all over the continent keeping the adventurers busy and well paid. 

    The books will include new monsters and unique settings for a Game Master, and a new class and new race for the players.  While most of the work is done by me, the writing creating, editing, typesetting and cartography, I have no artistic ability for drawing and painting. This is where Kickstarter comes in, I am here to fund raise to purchase the pieces of art I need to make my project truly unique.  It gives me the freedom to make the art fit the setting, rather than changing the setting to fit the clip art.  As with the other Blackbyrne projects, both the setting book and player's guide will be available for sale as both a PDF file and a printed copy through the Print on Demand program which we have been using for several months now. 

    I will be releasing more information and sneak peaks as the project moves forward, but if you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at JeffGupton@BlackbyrnePublishing.com.  Note: any rewards that include copies of books, are your choice of 4th Edition Dungeons & Dragons or Pathfinder RPG rule sets.

Please check "Updates" for sneak peaks and other information on The Age of Lords.
