Are YOU ready to become The Hero of Deathtrap Dungeon?

In case you're interested, this update is the YOU ARE THE HERO Kickstarter's eleventy-first! However, it's not an update about YOU ARE THE HERO.

Since you are clearly a Fighting Fantasy superfan, I thought you might like to be one of the first to hear about a new crowdfunding campaign to produce a brand new Fighting Fantasy digital RPG. The Hero of Deathtrap Dungeon is an all new digital RPG game set within Ian Livingstone's Deathtrap Dungeon series.

DICE MEN - The Early Years of Games Workshop

Hello again, faithful backers. I have a new update for you, but it's not about YOU ARE THE HERO so feel free to ignore it. Having said that, it does concern Messrs Jackson and Livingstone.

Scroll down to find out more...

DICE MEN: Games Workshop 1975 to 1985 

YOU ARE THE HERO Part 1 touched on the origins of Games Workshop but then rapidly moved on to focus on the development of the Fighting Fantasy series. As you may or may not know, a history of the early years of the company, covering Games Workshop's first ten years, is currently seeking backers and funding via Unbound.

DICE MEN: Games Workshop 1975 to 1985 is written by Steve Jackson, Ian Livingstone and Jamie Thomson, an author who will be familiar to FF fans and who worked for the company during that time.

The book is almost half way towards funding, so if you haven't backed it yourself yet, check it out on Unbound and pledge your support today.

 

          

DestinyQuest IV: The Raiders of Dune Sea

Another project that may be of interest to you, that is currently funding on Kickstarter, is the fourth volume in Michael J Ward's DestinyQuest gamebook series. Entitled The Raiders of Dune Sea it has already surpassed its initial funding goal of €8,000 and is now working its way towards the €12,000 stretch goal, which will provide all Kickstarter backers with an exclusive Dungeon Delve quest.

 You can find out more about DestinyQuest IV: The Raiders of Dune Sea here.

         

YOU ARE THE HERO Part 2 has just 24 hours to go on Kickstarter!

YOU ARE THE HERO Part 2 has only 24 hours to go on Kickstarter and is rapidly approaching the revised £24,000 stretch goal which, if reached, means that all the softback editions of the book that people have pledged to receive automatically become hardbacks!

 

Backers who have pledged to receive physical copies of the book will already be getting two bonus art prints and an MP3 download of Fighting Fantasy-inspired music, but if the next stretch goal is reached they will also receive a full-colour print of Leo Hartas's map of Allansia.

 

And of course a new art add-on has also been announced. Add £120 to any other pledge (or select the Golden Fleece reward by itself) and you could be the proud owner of a canvas art print of Chris Achilleos's cover art for YOU ARE THE HERO Part 2.

 

If you're already a backer but you've been considering upgrading your pledge - maybe adding a signature here or there - then now's the time to do so!

It's the final countdown for YOU ARE THE HERO Part 2!

As of writing this update, YOU ARE THE HERO Part 2 has 50 hours left to run on Kickstarter. So, by the time you read this, it's probably less.

The Kickstarter finishes at 1:00pm BST on Saturday 1st April 2017 - no joke!

If you enjoyed the original YOU ARE THE HERO then you will definitely enjoy this follow-up, which contains all new material - 12 chapters' worth!

As well as the usual signed book rewards and the like, everyone who backs to receive a physical copy of YOU ARE THE HERO Part 2 will also receive a full-colour A4 art print of Chris Achilleos's brand-new cover art for the book and another of John Blanche's classic painting of Kharé - Cityport of Traps from Steve Jackson's Sorcery! series.

 

And if we hit £22,000 on the Kickstarter, everyone who backs at the £10 Golem reward level or above will also receive an MP3 download of music inspired by Fighting Fantasy, by the likes of Groan, Isle of Avalon, and Jaldaboath!

 

    

But the big one is the £25,000 stretch goal. If we achieve that, then all of the softbacks of YOU ARE THE HERO Part 2 that people have pledged to receive will become hardbacks!

 

So what are you waiting for? If you haven't already, pledge your support today (after all, it's pay day tomorrow), and whether you're a new backer or not, keeping spreading the word.

Thank you for being there with me on this journey since the very beginning, back in 2012, and may your STAMINA never fail!

Fighting Fantasy to relaunch in its 35th anniversary year!
