A Complete RPG & sourcebooks for 5E

Fateforge is a self contained RPG using the 5e system and does not  require any 5e edition book. The Adventurers and Grimoire books are  enough to play. If you are already a 5e Edition player, these books  offer a new  campaign setting, as well as a multitude of options and  additional rules  to create and play characters in the world of Eana or  from it.

Map of Eana

Fateforge offers you a new world to explore ... Here is the map of Eana included in the Red Dragon and Dragon King of Ajagar pledges:

Learn more about the Fate-chosen, the Modular System, and the plans for the series by reading this article on the Fateforge blog.  The updates also give you many insights about Eana: discover the legendary Fateforge, the dreadful Canker or the strange woods of Plokholes. You can also learn about some majors phenomenon like Geomagic. 

God-Dragon: All-in Pledge

If you wish to get all the options and all the exclusive rewards of  this Kickstarter campaign, the God-Dragon pledge is made for you. It is  equivalent to Dragon King of Ajagar with the addition of all available  options not already included in this reward tier (metal Fateforge die  Bronze Edition, tiefling miniature, dragonborn miniature, PDF of the  Bestiary, and Grimoire art prints) at a $5 discount. Two Bronze Edition dice are also included as freebies (you will get three of them).

Last but not least, the God-Dragon reward tier lets you choose the edition of your books: Standard or Red Dragon. You  will make your choice during the Backerkit step. Note that the only  difference between these editions is the cover. The contents themselves  are identical.

STRETCH GOALS: NARA’S JOURNEY

By going beyond the project’s initial goal, you help pave the way for the continuation of the series. We have planned several stretch goals to thank you. All of these bonuses have been imagined with the intent of not delaying the delivery of the rewards, even if your subscription is a First Wave pledge.

In the course of this subscription, you will journey at the side of Nara the adventuress, a proud Kaani Merosi trained both as a warrior and a scholar, following the great tradition of her people.

SHIPPING

This project is US and EU-friendly. Physical rewards will be sent from the USA and France.  Backers from these countries will not pay import taxes. Shipping fees will be added after the subscription campaign, during the Backerkit phase. Below are a few shipping fee estimates. The exact amount will depend on the weight of your package. Your PDFs will be available on your DriveThruRPG and your BackerKit account. 



Risks and challenges

Fateforge has been in development in France since 2016. With the support of the French community, the studio has financed the creation and translation of the first two books of the series. Through Kickstarter, we hope to fund the production of these books and share this new universe.

So as to stick to the planned delivery schedule, we have taken care not to offer Stretch Goals that could prove a hindrance. Indeed, the production of all books and rewards is being finished right now. For this reason, most of the bonuses are in digital format or will be part of the series’ development.

Since 2012, out studio has launched and delivered 6 Kickstarter campaigns for our first project, Shadows of Esteren. We’ve been glad to send thousands of rewards throughout the world for the pleasure of our backers. We are confident that this campaign will proceed well, though incidents can always happen.

Thank you very much for your support!
