About

The project has been funded! Way to go, everyone!

That doesn't mean we are done yet. There are a bunch of Stretch Goals to be reached, each of which adds extra content to the supplement.  The first is adding a full-color, back cover illustration. Check below for a list of all announced Stretch Goals.

Are you a Game Master that likes (or wants) to create your own homebrew fantasy RPG adventures? If you are, excellent! In crafting an adventure, you select interesting monsters for the player characters to fight, place treasures hear and there, and determine a goal for the party to achieve; e.g., rescue a princess (or prince), recover a wondrous magic item, or rid an area of the aforementioned dangerous monsters. Finally, everything needs to be placed into an interesting map.

That last step can be a chore. We at Wyrmkeep Entertainment would like to offer a solution: a supplement chock-full or maps! There will be buildings, castles, dungeons and more, in various sizes from single shops, multi-room temples, structures of many levels, and maps that cover two 8½” by 11” pages. Even a map that violates Euclidian geometry!

All that is needed for this supplement to become a reality is for you to become a backer of Wyrmkeep Dungeons Presents Maps #1: Buildings, Castles and Dungeons!

The author of this supplement is Joe Pearce, who has been running and writing RPG adventures for over two decades. This is his sixth fantasy RPG funding drive, the first five being the successfully funded and shipped adventure modules Temple of the Dragon Kin, Befouled Maze of the Demi-Lich, The Beast Below, Raiders of the Cloud Castle, and Curse of the Desert Outpost. Joe is also a video game developer and writes a webcomic.

Maps will come from multiple sources: adventures that I have written for my own gaming group but that I don't expect to publish, original maps created just for the supplement, and backers like you via a reward! See below for more information. I expect the project to be complete and ready for delivery to backers by the end of 2019. 

Mixed in with the maps will be illustrations of scenes and monsters, possibly related to a map. Here are some of the artists that may appear in the module (based  on availability): Jacob Blackmon, Brian Brittle, Joshua LH Burnett, Ed Lacabanne, Mark  Lyons, Brian McCranie, and Phil Stone

The booklet will have the following features as a base goal:

  • 32+ pages in length
  • Dozens of maps
  • Detached cover with one huge map on the interior side
  • One map that can folded into a cube, for some non-Euclidean fun
  • Notes and commentary for each map
  • 6 or more black & white interior illustrations
  • Color cover artwork

Details and restrictions for the Submit a Room reward

The submitted room must be no more than 200 square feet in size. It can be any shape though: 40' x 50', 20' x 100', non-rectangular, etc. You may include furnishings in the room. Joe Pearce has final approval on entries. He will work with you to resolve any problems with your submission. You will contacted via Kickstarter messaging just before the submission period begins and be provided details on how to send your room.

Pre-cut, Card Stock Cubical Catacomb

The supplement comes with one map that is graphed onto a cube, giving this catacomb a non-Euclidean bent. Mad wizard? Pocket dimension? No problem.

Some pledge levels include a version of the Cubical Catacomb printed on card stock and pre-cut for easy assembly by you. It will also be slightly larger than the one in the softcover supplement!

Once the base goal is reached, I would like to make Maps #1: Buildings, Castles and Dungeons even better by adding more content! 

You can include additional items in your rewards by increasing your  pledge total above the base for the tier you selected. Just include the additional amount(s) listed below. Please note that some add-ons  have restrictions.

 Below are large images of the module covers and, given the topic of maps, one of the map pages from each module.

Thanks for your interest in this project! I hope you will become a backer and help make Wyrmkeep Dungeons Presents Maps #1: Buildings, Castles and Dungeons a great supplement for gamers to enjoy. Regardless of whether you can donate,  please share a link to this project with your friends on Facebook,  Twitter, Instagram, or any other forum were you think people would like  to know about the module.

A final thought: As a backer of Kickstarter projects myself, I have  one request for you: even if you don’t support this project, please find  another project today and donate at least $1 to them. That way they  will be excited, you will feel great, and it will help us further everyone's creative and artistic goals on this site.

Risks and challenges

We have already successfully funded and shipped five fantasy RPG modules, and based on that we know that the risks are pretty minimal for a project of this kind. We don't anticipate any delays or issues, but once in a while they happen due to the detail level of a map or two.

I want to create a top-notch supplement, so extra drafts and final tweaking may be required. Backers will be kept up-to-date on these issues. If and when this causes a delay, it will be for making the best product that I can on budget!
