About this project

UPDATE:

Quest Kick was just featured in Troll in the Corner's "Kick the Box".

We've added new rewards.  Please view the Rewards section below for the most up to date information. The ones in the right column can't be changed after the KickStarter launched, so they're out of date.

We are a team of experienced game designers and software developers that have joined forces to create a next generation role playing web site called Quest Kick. 

Quest Kick makes your game more immersive and easier to run by giving your group easy to use tools that help streamline your campaign, minimize game-management tasks, and create a deep and rich experience. Every feature is designed with these goals in mind.

We've already built most of the core tools, successfully launched a private beta, and got amazing feedback from hundreds of gamers that helped us design features they'd love to use.  We're excited about making Quest Kick bigger and better, and hope you'll support us by backing the project.

Campaign notes:  Track all your game notes in a simple and powerful system. All your NPCs, locations, and quests are organized so you won't forget details from previous sessions.

Private messages:  Send and receive private notes with players while gaming. Private notes make it easy to keep other players from knowing something they shouldn't so you can reduce meta-gaming.

Mini-maps:  Track players on a mini map that stays on your screen so you don't have to flip up and back between your notes and maps. Use your own or get pre-made ones from the Add-on Store. 

Dynamic soundtracks: Immerse your players in the game by controlling the music for each scene.  You can make battles feel more epic, and exploration more open and mysterious.

Auto organize:  Easily navigate your world with tags that automatically link together related NPCs, locations, and anything else.  Tags make it extremely fast to look up information so you can keep your game moving.

Sharing:  Reveal any part of your world to your group in one click, or choose which players to share with.  You'll never again forget which information you shared.

Speedy dice:  Create custom dice combinations, save them with labels (e.g. "Fireball"), and roll them with a single click.  Custom dice speeds up gameplay since players and GMs don't have to look up, roll, or calculate dice results.

Add-on Store:  Snag new maps, campaign themes, soundtracks, and character avatars for your game.  If we reach the "Enhanced Add-on Store" goal, you'll also be able to get adventures, NPCs, or any other game modules.  In addition, you will be able to sell or share your own creations with other gamers.

All-in-one:  Streamline your campaign into one easy to use system.  All your gaming tools are in one place and work together seamlessly so you don't have to hack together several unrelated tools.

No downloads:  Quest Kick is web based and works with computers, tablets, and phones, so that it can easily be used in-game by the whole group.  Your information is safe in the cloud and can be accessed from anywhere.  You'll never have to download or update software.

Loot manager:  Players can easily track their character’s inventory. Carried weight is automatically calculated, and money is adjusted when they buy or sell gear. Select from pre-made gear lists, or use your own. 

Character condition: You and your players can see their character's condition at a glance with meters that can be used for anything, like health, magic, or stamina. This gives a simple, visual representation of the character's condition.

Adventure log:  Players can keep organized notes on NPCs, quests, and other important information during their character’s travels.  The adventure log will keep them from forgetting details they may need at a later time.

There are many reward packages available.  We recommend you start by looking at the Gamer Pack Core.  This is the main package and an incredible value.  It also will get you early access to the product, and exploding rewards that give you even more rewards when we reach higher goals.

See “The goals” for details on exploding rewards for each goal.

Back our project now, and get exclusive rewards.

Our initial funding goal is $20,000.  We’ve already built most of the core tools, and meeting this goal will let us create additional rewards for our backers. By helping us reach further goals, you will enable us to add all sorts of other tools and game material to make Quest Kick even better. Also, the more goals we reach, the more rewards backers will get.

$40,000 Goal: Enhanced Add-on Store

We will build a robust Add-on Store where you can snag new adventures, settings, soundtracks, theme packs, and more.  It will offer both free and paid add-ons.

Members will also be able to create your own game modules and publish them in the Add-on Store for other gamers to use.

The Tomb of Rakoss the Undying by Mischief Inc. will be the first adventure available in the Add-on Store. Learn more at http://bit.ly/rakoss-the-undying

Content you create for the Add-on Store will get premium placement for 3 months if you pledged at least the $200 reward level.  

$60,000 Goal: Enhanced Dice

Each NPC (characters and monsters) in your game can have their own custom dice so you can run them more easily.  You will also be able to create more flexible dice combinations that will work with almost any gaming system.  

$80,000 Goal: “Mythic Realms” Theme Pack

We will create a theme pack for an epic fantasy world.  It will include gorgeous full screen background illustrations and character avatars designed by top notch artists, an inventory pack, and a long campaign soundtrack by a talented composer.  

Illustrations and avatars will be free to everyone who pledged at least the $100 reward level.  

Inventory pack and soundtrack will be free to everyone who pledged at least the $500 reward level.

$100,000 Goal: Combat manager

You will be able to easily manage combat, keep track of the initiative order, see important stats, and roll combatant dice.  This will make combat run smoother and reduce the amount of time players have to wait for their turn.

We will create a theme pack for sci-fi games that involve space travel and exploring strange worlds.  It will include gorgeous full screen background illustrations and character avatars designed by top notch artists, an inventory pack, and a long campaign soundtrack by a talented composer.

$170,000 Goal: “Sandstorm” Theme Pack

We will create a theme pack for a fantasy game set in a vast desert region.  It will include gorgeous full screen background illustrations and character avatars designed by top notch artists, an inventory pack, and a long campaign soundtrack by a talented composer.

Inventory pack and soundtrack will be free to everyone who pledged at least the $500 reward level.

$200,000 Goal: In-Game Calendar

The calendar will let you see the in-game date, season, and moon phase at a glance. You'll never again be unaware of the date or have to track it manually. The calendar will be full customizable so that it will work with nearly any campaign setting.

$220,000 Goal: “Mists of Darkness” Theme Pack

We will create a theme pack for a fantasy game set in an eerie gothic horror setting.  It will include gorgeous full screen background illustrations and character avatars designed by top notch artists, an inventory pack, and a long campaign soundtrack by a talented composer.

$250,000 Goal: Status Tracker

You will be able to easily track the status of characters, NPCs, and monsters.  Select from lists of statuses like “blinded”, “poisoned”, and “diseased”, or create your own statuses.  Set a duration to have them automatically go away after a certain amount of time.

$275,000 Goal: NPC Packs

We will create detailed NPCs with rich descriptions and beautiful illustrations for each theme pack.  NPCs can be dropped into your game “as-is”, or customized by you. NPCs will be created by talented game designers and artists.

One NPC pack will be free to all members who pledged at least the $100 reward level.

Two NPC pack will be free to all members who pledged at least the $200 reward level.

All NPC packs will be free to all members who pledged at least the $500 reward level.

$300,000 Goal: Random Generators

You will be able to generate random NPCs, communities, and weather.  Weather will automatically appear for each day in your calendar.  Each theme pack will have its own random generators, so for example “Sand Storm” will have vastly different weather and communities than “Mythic Realms”.

In order to complete a project of this unique scope, we’ve put together a team of experts that include music composers, artists, cartographers, game designers, and software developers.  

Every day we wake up thinking about how to create great RPG tools, the kind that we'd love to use in our own games.

In the past, our team members have worked with companies such as Wizards of the Coast, Paizo, Pioneer Press, and Lucus Arts on projects ranging from role playing games, to video games, to web applications.

Risks and challenges

While there is always some risk involved in creating a product, there are 3 factors that make it extremely likely we will overcome any challenges and deliver the product on time.

First, we are experienced in launching projects of this scope. Second, most of the core tools are already built. Third, the most common risk with software projects is not having enough funding, and by reaching our goals we'll have all the funding we need to build the respective features.
