What is ATLANTIS?
Atlantis is a sword and sorcery game inspired by the works of Fritz Lieber, Michael Moorcock, Robert E. Howard, and Clark Ashton Smith. Atlantis; a strange, wondrous and sometimes horrific antediluvian age where heroes survive by their wits, courage, and strong sword arms. Based on the classic Atlantean Trilogy by Bard Games
What is HELLAS?
Hellas is an epic space opera in the style of ancient Greek culture and legend. Every player character is a Hero in a story that you will help create, with the power to influence the settings and elements of the game. Hellas spans multiple generations, allowing for the continuation of the epic story even after the death of a Hero, in the style of the epic poets of old.
"Imagine the movies Chronicles of Riddick meets 300." That’s HELLAS
FREE RPG DAY
The goal of the Kickstarter campaign is to make the introductory adventures and quickstart rules free for RPG Day
Consumers WORLDWIDE will be able to grab brand new material for a variety of RPGs --- no overstock, retail-priced or dead product here. The goal of Free RPG Day is to inspire gamers to play a new RPG, which will in turn, create sales through local game stores. Use the retailer locator to find a participating store near you!
Both will feature truncated rules for play, plus several pre-generated characters.
For ATLANTIS: The Second Age
Trouble in Potos is an adventure set in the antediluvian world of ATLANTIS! The heroes are tasked to stop vile kidnappers in the land of the Lotus Eaters!
For HELLAS: Worlds of Sun and Stone
Prison break! A noble senator’s wayward son is unjustly imprisoned on a distant prison planet and the heroes are tasked with finding him.
Both adventures are play tested, and ready to go for Free RPG Day but I need your help.
Simple, you aren't.
You provide the money, I provide publishing; we both feel good about giving back.
You’re helping someone else who doesn't know HELLAS or ATLANTIS get a free copy of the rules plus an adventure. Who knows, your contribution may help create another generation of role-players!
What I will create
- Two 24 page quick start books - one for ATLANTIS and the other for HELLAS. (1,200 copies of each book)
- Each book will feature:
- A brief introduction to the game to help those unfamiliar understand the game’s themes
- The basic rules of play
- Pre-generated characters
- A small introductory adventure to illustrate how the games work
All to be given away for FREE!
The more money I raise the more free booklets I can print and the more I can try and give back to the community that’s been so generous to me.
I’m not just a creepy guy standing in bushes. I’m a creepy but honest guy standing in bushes.
With the help of other talented men and women I’ve created products for PDF and physical print and maintained a level of consistency and quality that rivals much larger publishers.
I don’t have any.
I only want to print a Free RPG Day Supplement and that’s it. Once I reach my goal, I'm done. More money equals more books I can print and give away for free.
PDFs will be available for free with a print option through Drivethru RPG.
Risks and challenges
Khepera Publishing is an experienced RPG publisher. I’ve produced several role-playing games in a variety of formats over the past ten years. This puts me in a fine position to take on the risks and challenges that will arise; and as with any project, experience tells me a few problems likely will.
If there are any risks or challenges YOU can think of that we haven't mentioned here, please write in and tell me. I’ll try and provide the best possible service for your help.
