"Now it is the time of night,
That the graves, all gaping wide,
Every one lets forth his sprite,
In the church-way paths to glide."

-William Shakespeare, A Midsummer Night's Dream

Third Postcard & Monster  

A further exclusive monster card! A new postcard with a brand new monster exclusively designed by Wiggy. This third postcard will be received by every backer in their chosen format.

An Angry Ghost Will Be Denied Credit No Longer!

A lost tale from the Bard resurfaces, but it produces not only a play but also a vengeful ghost! The clock is ticking as the intrepid globetrotters try to discover why this apparition haunts and kills those involved. If they don't solve the mystery quickly, then the globetrotters may count themselves amongst the victims!

From the warped imagination of renowned RPG author and long-time TAG friend Walt Ciechanowski (Paris Gothique & Le Mousquetaire Déshonoré for All for One: Régime Diabolique) comes a spine-tingling adventure for Leagues of Gothic Horror!

This adventure requires Leagues of Adventure RPG and Leagues of Gothic Horror expansion. The Guide to Apparitions offers the Gamemaster a wealth of information on haunting spirits, but is not required to run this scenario.

As with the Leagues of Gothic Horror Guides, Ghost Writer will be printed in 6.69" x 9.61" (170 mm x 244 mm) format. 

The book is 55 pages (around 29,000 words), with black and white interior pages, and a full color softcover.

Please check out our recommended pledge levels below.

Supporting our Kickstarter is easy! Just follow the steps below:  

1. Choose the pledge level you want. We have all of our recommended pledges detailed below.  

2. Click "BACK THIS PROJECT" and select your reward level (called REWARD) on the page following.  

3. Enter your total amount. Shipping will be calculated and added on after the Kickstarter ends.       

You are free to amend your pledge at any time using the green 'Manage My Pledge' button.

The cost of shipping will be calculated and collected after the Kickstarter concludes based on the actual costs incurred to ship. We will collect this via a pledge manager program. 

The following costs are estimates only and are based purely on the weight of the adventure only: UK £4, USA £5, EU £5, Rest of World £5-10. The cost for the First Time at the Theater package will be higher due to the weight. We have estimated it at around £25 for shipping.

Shipments will be sent from within both the US and the UK, thus minimizing any complicated customs or shipping issues.

 Please be aware that customers are responsible for paying any customs duties for their country.

Triple Ace Games began in 2008. Since then we have produced many popular settings, including Hellfrost, Leagues of Adventure, Leagues of Gothic Horror, Leagues of Cthulhu, and All for One: Regime Diabolique, plus the Rocket Race, Cadaver, Imps, and Halfling Feast card games. With many years of experience in the games industry, we continue to create fantastic games for everyone.

Risks and challenges

The adventure is written, edited, and laid out, and the final cover is almost ready to drop into place. Barring a few tweaks, the adventure is ready to publish!

However, things can go wrong with anything that goes into a manufacturing process. We have identified that delays in manufacturing could happen. So we have allowed additional time in our schedule to enable us to navigate any delay issues. If all goes to plan, we may even be able to deliver the project a little sooner.

We understand the printing process as we have printed a good number of books previous to this project, and we know how to communicate our ideas to the printer. We have discussed proofing requirements, so we know that when the printing press is started our book will match our specification requirements.

With projects like this there is nearly always something that costs more so it is good business sense to have some contingency for this, which we have built in to our costs.

No matter what problems may occur we will always keep our backers and supporters informed of all issues so that you are aware of the situation and how we are dealing with it.
