What are we doing here?
L'gat's Tome of Amazing Creatures Volume 2 is the next release in a trilogy set of 5th Edition Dungeons and Dragons supplements. Produced by Power Up Gamers Roleplayers for Accessibility, artwork will be done by the talented Jon Pintar.
What's in the book?
Much like the first volume, we plan on releasing 26 homebrewed and re-skinned monsters with rich lore, culture, and history sections, several tables including a d100 magic item roll table, and a section containing 12 locations with sights, sounds, and sensations specifically designed to cater disabilities. Each Location will also have a trap, a puzzle and a riddle along with monsters from the series that might be found there.The Supplement will have a full color cover with black ink sketches of the monsters inside.
If our goal of $1,500 is achieved, we have two stretch goals planned:
$2,500 USD - We plan on expanding the lore,culture,and history sections of each monster beyond the basic descriptions. In addition, We plan on providing smaller additional artwork such as sample lair maps for each monster.
$5,000 USD - In addition to previous Goals, We plan on providing Premium Softcover 8.5" x 11" physical copy of L'gat's Tome of Amazing Creatures Volume 2 to all KickStarter Backers who want it.
Risks and challenges
Given that we were successful with our first Kickstarter and releasing the product as promised, we are more experienced now with the work that is necessary to complete a project in a timely manner.
One of the biggest hardships we encountered previously was in constant communication and updates of progress. To resolve this issue, we have implemented a mandatory weekly meeting for the writers and editors on this project . For the Artist and Page Design and Layout Team, we have implemented a mandatory weekly email containing details of their progress.
The second hurdle We had to overcome was finding time to both Playtest and rework the monsters and have them available for Page Design and Layout. For this issue, we have implemented a weekly team fun-night where we will conduct alpha playtests as well as a public weekly playtest. In addition, we plan to run one shots featuring the monsters of L'gat's Tome of Amazing Creatures Volume 2.
By the time the Kickstarter has Launched, the rough draft of the PDF will be finished not counting the artwork and We have set up very strict deadlines in order to ensure it's timely release as a finished Product on Dec. 15th 2018.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
