About this project
Forged in Magic: REFORGED adds over 400+ magic items to your 5E campaign – from magical weapons and armors, rings, and shields to mystical potions, magical staffs and a myriad of wondrous items. Forged in Magic: REFORGED doesn’t just provide a list of items and their properties, but many also have a backstory on its creation or history. While these stories are set in the Arcanis: World of Shattered Empires campaign setting, the rich detail can help you place these in any published setting or your own home made campaign.
Back Forged in Magic: REFORGED today and recapture that wonder from even veteran players with magic items they’ve never heard of.
Forged in Magic: REFORGED begins as a 160-page softback with color illustrations. As we meet Stretch Goals, we’ll increase the size of the book, add more art and unlock the HARDBACK upgrade as well. The book is beautifully illustrated by talented artists, such as Pat Loboyko and Ricardo German Ponce Torres and filled with a wealth of information. Forged in Magic: REFORGED will also include new types of magic items, such as Weapons of War and Fetishes to every DMs favorite, the Cursed item. We’ll even shoe horn a new Archetype to make use of those fetishes, the mystical and mysterious Ehtzara.
To increase the book's utility, magic items will be tagged with their land of origin, such as Yahssremoran Empire (serpent empire), Eloran Empire (elven empire), the Imperium of Man (ancient human empire), Yhing Hir tribes (nomadic people), etc. An appendix with charts sorting the magic items by the land of origin will allow DMs to quickly sift through the hundreds of items in the book and select the proper treasure for the adventure. For example, if your players are adventuring in half-sunken ruins in the swamps, then an item from the Yahssremoran Empire (serpent empire) might be appropriate.
Below are a few samples pages (layout is not final) to give you an idea of what you can expect to find within Forged in Magic: REFORGED.
While the manuscript is done, we would like to lavishly illustrate the book with work from some of the top artists in the RPG Fantasy industry, as well as print enough copies to offer it to gaming stores worldwide. Neither of these two goals are inexpensive and can only happen with YOUR help!
The high cost of shipping worldwide is beyond our control and we’re working hard to make sure the backer pledge rewards will be shipped as quickly and inexpensively as possible. We do not expect to make a profit from the shipping charges, but by the same token, we also cannot afford to lose money on it either.
After the Kickstarter campaign ends, we will send out a backer survey to collect your mailing addresses. Using this information, we will get the most accurate shipping pricing we can based on our actual cost to ship your reward level to your home and then charge you that amount.
Shipping a book of this size to Europe, the UK and Australia is around $24.00 to $26.00, Canada a bit less and to anywhere in the US, about $5.00. We'll continue to explore other methods to decrease the cost as much as possible.
PLEASE DO NOT ADD THESE ESTIMATED COSTS TO YOUR PLEDGE! Once the final book is done and the surveys received, we will let you know the actual cost. We will also group orders together at your request to save on shipping costs.
Once we reach the main goal of publishing the book, we'll add Stretch Goals to enhance the book by adding more material ($9,000) and more art work ($11,000). Further Stretch Goals will see the book published as a hardback at no additional cost to you!
Another future Stretch Goal that I'm very excited to offer is a twist on the "Lairs” encounter. We'll publish a short adventure of a particular tomb, ruins, Infernal demesne or anything else we think will be exciting, add some interesting creatures and/or adversaries and feature one of the magic items featured in Forged in Magic: REFORGED! If we unlock enough of these, we'll combine them into a book and you'll receive the PDF for FREE!

Risks and challenges
Paradigm Concepts has published dozens of books over the past 15 years as well as a number of Kickstarters. While the last one was late due to an unexpected family illness and death, the book was completed and sent to backers.
The risks to this project are relatively small as the manuscript is already complete, as is some of the art. The primary risk is production is always those delays due to unforeseen life events in the production team (family emergencies, illness, etc.). The secondary risk is a potential delay in receiving the necessary information and feedback from those backer levels that require their input. We'll work hard to stay on top of that and ensure that the book is delivered on time.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
