“But—Why didn’t you say?”
“Secret agent. Secret.”

—K. J. Charles, Think of England

Previous Kickstarters by Triple Ace Games funded Leagues of Gothic Horror, a packed 160-page guide to Ubiquity-powered horror, five 64-page supplements covering apparitions, black magic, mummies, shapeshifters, and vampires in great depth, and a 96-page Gothic Horror Expansion

This project is to fund two additional supplements simultaneously - the Ministry of Unusual Affairs and Mordavia: Land of Horror - and Leagues of Gothic Horror dice.

These books are designed for use with Leagues of Gothic Horror and Leagues of Cthulhu, but are compatible with many other Ubiquity-powered settings.

Everyone who pledges at Tea Boy or Girl or higher (this includes the now-locked Top Agent) will receive the Leagues of Adventure and Leagues of Gothic Horror core books in PDF format for FREE. If you already have these PDFs, please feel free to gift one copy to a friend.

Ministry of Unusual Affairs

While it publicly scoffs at the notion of the occult, the British government is not entirely ignorant of its presence. Working behind the scenes to safeguard the Empire from diabolical magicians, perverse cults, and supernatural creatures, not to mention crazed weird scientists, is the Ministry of Unusual Affairs.

Ministry of Unusual Affairs

Inside you'll discover the centuries-long history of the Ministry, tour the many departments responsible for fighting evil, explore how to borrow contents from the Ministry's fabled Collection, and be taught how to cover up supernatural occurrences for reasons of public safety. You'll even get to meet some of the many agents who defend Great Britain and her colonies against supernatural threats.

Mordavia: Land of Horror

Nestled in the mountains of Eastern Europe, the small Duchy of Mordavia is a land where the supernatural is very real. From foreboding forests to crumbling castles, remote hamlets to the gas-lit capital itself, every nook and cranny holds a dark secret, as do the people who dwell in this accursed land.

Mordavia: Land of Horror (Placeholder Cover Art)
Mordavia: Land of Horror (Placeholder Cover Art)

Every location and major character will be written up as a place of horror and villain respectively, providing the Gamemaster with dozens of potential adventures. However, every major character will also have an alternate background that presents a non-villainous side. For instance, a lord who has had multiple wives all die suddenly may be a serial killer (his villainous default) or a victim of repeated bad luck (wives have died from disease, in childbirth, etc.).

Which aspect is the real one in YOUR campaign will be up to YOU to decide.

The book details the natives and customs of Mordavia, provides an expansive gazetteer of spooky locales, includes profiles for some of the more notable inhabitants and wicked cults, and gives the Gamemaster dozens of adventure seeds.

Each of the books, including the Guide to Walking Dead stretch goal (see Stretch Goals below), has the same format. They are the same dimensions and page count as previous supplements released for Leagues of Gothic Horror.

Format: 64-pages, comic book size (6.69" x 9.61"), softcover, color cover, black and white illustrated interior.

    These dice comes free with some pledge levels. Please check your chosen reward before selecting it as an add-on.

    Guide to Lairs: £6 (approx. $7)

    This 16-page print booklet provides rules for creating lairs that are more than just the home of dastardly villains. Alive, albeit in the loosest sense of the word, these locales are formed through a concentration of negative energy. From single rooms to battlefields to entire landscapes, these dark places possess a range of terrifying supernatural abilities. Creating unique lairs uses a points-based system, allowing the Gamemaster to build lairs to suit the make-up and strength of the globetrotters.

    Character Sheet
    (£7,500; approx. $9,300)

    A US letter-sized form-fillable character sheet for Leagues of Gothic Horror. This is an electronic stretch goal.

    Guide to Walking Dead
    (£11,500; approx. $14,250)

    The sixth monster guide concerns the walking dead - flesh golems (aka Frankenstein's monsters), ghouls, corporeal revenants, skeletons, and zombies. The book has the same layout and chapter headings as previous volumes in this range.

     

     

    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 BackerKit. 

    The following costs are estimates: UK £4, USA £5, EU £10, Rest of World £12.  

    Shipments for dice only pledges are estimated at: UK £1, EU £1-2, USA £4, Rest of World £6. Since the postage won't change much, why not add or another set or two?

    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.

    Wiggy has done preliminary research and writing for these books, but we need your help to fund the artwork (covers and interiors), layout, and printing. As usual, we are not charging for the time it takes to write these books. With your help, we can not only expand the Leagues of Gothic Horror line, we can produce books that can be used in a variety of Ubiquity settings.

    Why are we trying to fund two books at once? We have a lot of ideas and only a limited amount of resources, including time. These volumes mark the end of the core Gothic Horror supplements. Once these are done, it enables us to begin working on new material, such as adventures, as well as other Ubiquity-powered books, sooner rather than later. It also means you get the books in your hands more quickly - as one batch rather than two (or three, with the stretch goal) separate packages.

    Triple Ace Games began in 2008. The masterminds behind the company, Paul "Wiggy" Wade-Williams and Robin Elliott, had previously worked on The Savage World of Solomon Kane and Slipstream settings, among others, for Pinnacle Entertainment Group. Triple Ace Games has 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.

Leagues of Gothic Horror Expansion

Risks and challenges

We have a great deal of experience in the field of games publishing, and we think we can deliver this project without problems.

However, things can go wrong with anything that goes into a manufacturing process. We have identified that delays in artwork delivery and 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.
