Preparing for Invasion
Another two stretch goals unlocked, another good day for Masks! Your support continues to be amazing, and it’s really taking Masks to awesome places. New books, new playbooks, new playsets, and more are all in the pipeline.
Stretch Goal #10 UNLOCKED: Healers of Halcyon City, by Brianna Sheldon
Brianna Sheldon is going to write “Healers of Halcyon City,” all about healing powers and healthcare in the city. This is one of those pieces that immediately called out a subject I hadn’t really thought about, and that’s why I’m so happy to have it in the Halcyon City Herald Collection! Brie is going to shine the light on some interesting new angles for stories in Halcyon City, making the entire city deeper and more complex---can’t wait to see what she does with it!
Stretch Goal #11 UNLOCKED: Monarch Industries and the Chrysalis, by Kyle Simons
Kyle Simons (Worlds in Peril) is going to write “Monarch Industries and the Chrysalis,” all about an evil corporation and the origin of a dangerous villain. I love weird but relatable supervillains, and the Chrysalis falls right into that bucket. And that’s not even to mention the effects that a Fountain of Youth drug would have on a city full of older superheroes---I love where that story could go. Kyle has a lot of experience working in superhero fiction, and I can’t wait to get his villain to the table!
The Halcyon City Herald Collection, Now In Print!
And because we’ve reached $30,000, we’ll be printing the Halcyon City Herald Collection as a 6” x 9”, full-color companion volume to Masks! It will feature all the articles from our currently unlocked stretch goals, along with the custom moves and rules to make them come to life at your table, and maybe some extra pieces to fill it out!
If you’d like to get a copy of the Halcyon City Herald Collection, just add $20 to your pledge, and then when the campaign ends, you'll be able to select it as an add-on through Backerkit. We’ll ship it to you as soon as it’s ready. No extra shipping costs required!
In Our Next Issue…
Our first playbook, Rob Wieland’s Phoenix Academy, is still coming up at $35,000. And now, we can announce our second playset: Misha Bushyager’s Iron Red Soldiers!
Stretch Goal #13: Iron Red Soldiers, by Misha Bushyager
In this playset written by Misha Bushyager, an invading force of aliens determined to prevent the spread of superheroes from infecting the universe has managed to corral or kill the world's premier heroes. It's up to your intrepid heroes to rescue your remaining mentors and take back your city before it's too late.
Iron Red Soldiers is inspired by such films as V, Toy Soldiers, Iron Eagle, and Red Dawn. This playset will set the young masks up to be the saviors the world needs to get through the attack of the Tangee, an avian race from the planet Arrys. This playset, just like Phoenix Academy, will be 10,000 words of awesome, including setting information, rules tweaks, custom moves, and more to make sure that you can play your own superheroic version of Wolverines versus aliens!
If we reach $40,000, we’ll send a full PDF copy of Iron Red Soldiers to everyone who pledges at least $10!
We still have many more stretch goals to go, including playbooks, playsets, articles, and some other awesome stuff along the way. Your support has already taken us this far, and it can help us get to even more cool stretch goals! Please share this Kickstarter out---let other people know about Masks and how far we’ve come. Halcyon City’s future is in your hands!
