New Stretch Goal List


I’ve just announced the talented John Harper as the stretch goal author at $30,000. Like many of the writers and designers on this list, John reports being a fan of the original edition of Prince Valiant® The Storytelling Game and/or the Prince Valiant® comic strip, so it will be a pleasure to add his scenario to the new edition.

We’re still not even halfway through the project, but I’ve been busy contacting more authors to see if they’d like to contribute and I now have a list brimming with awesome. So instead of revealing the stretch goal authors one-by-one, I’ve made a schedule. I’ve also created special groups of authors at the $40k, $50 and $60k funding amounts. Instead of adding a single author at these levels, there’s a group of authors! I may even add to these lists if I hear back from other authors.

I’ll introduce the each person more individually as we achieve the stretch goals involving them. For now, I give you this list of amazing people:

$32,500 — BJ Hensley (Playground Adventures)

$35,000 — Ed Greenwood (Forgotten Realms)

$37,500 — Shannon Appelcline (Designers & Dragons)

$40,000 — Indie RPG Designers: Bret Gillan (The Final Girl), Sage LaTorra (Dungeon World) and Epidiah Ravachol (Dread, Worlds Without Master)

$42,500 — James Lowder (novelist & editor)

$45,00 — Jeff Grubb (Dragonlance, Forgotten Realms)

$47,500 — Chris Klug (DragonQuest, James Bond RPG)

$50,000 — White Wolf Alumni: Justin Achilli (Vampire: The Masquerade), Bill Bridges (Werewolf: The Apocalypse), Phil Brucato (Mage: The Ascension), Richard Dansky (Wraith: The Oblivion), Will Hindmarch (Vampire: The Masquerade), Ethan Skemp (Werewolf: The Apocalypse). And my partner in creating the entire World of Darkness, Mark Rein•Hagen.

$52,500 — Jeff Barber (Blue Planet, Midnight)

$55,000 — Steve Sechi (Talislanta)

$60,000 — King Arthur Pendragon Authors: David Larkins (Book of Feasts), Robert Schroeder (Book of Sires), Malcolm Wolter (Book of Records), and of course Greg Stafford!

$60,000+ — ??. Can we go this high? If we approach this level, then I’ll get in touch with more authors. Virtually everyone I’ve contacted has been anxious to write for this new edition of Prince Valiant® The Storytelling Game.

Thanks everyone for your great support. Will you please take a moment to post a link to our Facebook posting about the game, or otherwise share the project with your friends? The more support we receive the more free bonus scenarios we can include from these outstanding writers and designers.

      @Sophie, I'm pleased to have so many excellent designers writing for PV!

      Stewart, thank you for taking my concerns to heart. In light of the new stretch goals including more diverse writers, I have raised my pledge.

      I was watching Designers & Dragons when it was in KS...I really wanted in and I was sharing the project among my friends...but too many other projects at the time made me choose Games...or books about Games.

      I had to go Games...cause I'm an addict.

      @Shannon, yes! Thanks for checking in. Anyone reading this should look up Shannon's Designers & Dragons. Great stuff. The TSR section of the 1970's volume is available free here:

      @Shannon Appelcline:

      Great to see you here!

      I'm totally new to the Prince Valiant scene...though I think I used to watch a Prince Valiant cartoon back in the day...

      Looking forward to everything I can get my hands on for this project!

      @Sophie, I hear you, but I don't know *everyone* in gaming, though I do know some of the people on your list. I'm continuing to make requests, but not everyone has time right now, and some authors along the lines you're requesting have had to decline for various reasons.

    7. Shannon Appelcline on August 8, 2016

      An honor to be in that company. I've pulled my Prince Valiant comic collections & the original RPG off the shelf to start thinking!

      I just know that if I were going to start a project, I would first approach people that I know, trust, and feel could contribute to this specific project.

      And sadly, my circle of friends and colleagues look a lot like me. It's not discrimination or sexism on my part, those are just the folks I know and have run into.

      However I'd be open to anyone approaching me and showing me that they are a good fit for the project.

      So I'd say if there's any author out there that folks think would fit well in this project, contact them...ask them if they are interested and point them in Stewart's direction.

      @Sophie...if you have access to those folks (Facebook, Twitter, fan sites), why don't you encourage those authors to approach Stewart?

      Yes, it's a lot of talent. Unfortunately, except for BJ, Monica and Nicole, it's nothing but men as far as the eye can see. And is there a single person of colour on the roster? Have you invited people like Anna Kreider, Eloy LaSanta, Emily Care Boss, Jenna Moran, Jerry Grayson, Jess Hartley, Julia Ellingboe, Kira Magrann, Meguey Baker, Mike Pondsmith, Moyra Turkington, or Shreyas Sampat to name but a few good candidates?

      That's an amazing list of names/talent! $60,000+!!!
