Revelry in Torth takes place in a post-holocaust world (7 of the most powerful wizards created one gargantuan fireball to destroy the world in order to prevent a machine slave revolt). The people of Torth live in cities surrounded by a desert of endless night and peril.
This particular adventure is set in the city called Aryd's End, during a time of festivity. Several factions are making plans and hatching schemes. No one is all good or all evil, merely shades of grey.
PCs will become entangled in a murder and the fate of Torth is at stake. Sandbox, urban adventure, dark, Conan-esque sword & sorcery, just a hint of scifi, and very little gonzo.
You can bet that somewhere along the way, Revelry in Torth will include some "inappropriate material", but nothing too hardcore, grindhouse, or shocking. Check out my blog to see what I and my previous products are about: http://vengersatanis.blogspot.com/
This adventure will be about 21 pages long, give or take a couple pages. For characters level 1 - 3. Hopefully, Revelry in Torth is part one of a trilogy. But that depends on you guys.
Below is a piece of art I've been saving for a very special occasion. It's going in this adventure...
Ed Wedig is doing the layout. The book will be written by me and published by Kort'thalis Publishing in association with Draconic Magazine: http://www.draconicmagazine.com/
I try my best to over-deliver, so expect an impressive product delivered with the courtesy and respect that customers deserve. Thanks for backing this project!
At this point, it might be just wishful thinking. However, if we get to $3,000, I'll commission a full color cityscape of Aryd's End that will be included with the PDF. So far, I'm leaning towards Jeff Brown: http://www.jeffbrowngraphics.com/
Risks and challenges
The only way this isn't getting made is if something truly horrible happens to me.
A couple artists I've worked with before have already been secured, just waiting on one or two others.
FYI, I'm going to be on a family vacation the last week of September, so will be incommunicado for everything except dire emergencies.
I'm hoping to have the print versions in peoples' hands by Xmas.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
