Latest News: Funded and Beyond...
Thanks for your interest in Temple of the Dragon Kin. If you would like to purchase a copy of the module, please visit http://wyrmkeep.com/dragonkin for production status and ordering information.
Thank you again backers!
Are you a game master looking for an interesting and challenging adventure for your players that can be completed in one session? Well, I believe I have just what you want: Temple of the Dragon Kin is a mini-adventure module designed for a band of 5-8 5e DnD characters of 6th to 8th level.
A party of stalwart adventurers is being sought by the learned sage, Gaspar Uberbellum. He wishes to hire the group to find and explore a lost temple dedicated to the veneration of dragons and their humanoid children, the dragon born. Within this temple is supposedly a powerful magic item that Gaspar covets: the Helm of the Dragon Lord.
The party will be paid handsomely for successfully locating, extracting, and returning the Helm to the sage. And unusual for agreements of this kind, the party’s employer does not desire a cut of any other valuables discovered — the party can keep random loot they acquire along the way!
Sounds like a great deal! Simple really.
Well, one should expect to encounter deadly traps, inscrutable puzzles, and powerful guardians along the way. Nothing a strong and resourceful group of adventurers can’t overcome!
Although they might want to worry about the dragons.
This project is a special All in 1 Kickstarter, which among other things means that the funding drive only has a duration of one week. Back it now because there is not much time for procrastination!
The author of the module is Joe Pearce, who has been running and writing RPG adventures for over 20 years. He is also a video game developer and writes a webcomic.
The module has a complete design and only needs expanded descriptions of the encounters, playtesting, and artwork for it to be finished. I expect it should be available for delivery to backers by May of this year (2017).
The module will have the following features:
- 12-16 pages in length
- 10-14 encounter areas
- 4 original, to-be-commissioned, black & white illustrations
- 2 new monsters available as Open Gaming Content
- Map of the Temple of the Dragon Kin
This is a nice, short Kickstarter and has a corresponding small set of rewards.

You also get to add a message to one plot-significant item. (Message must be approved by Joe.) You receive two printed copies of Temple of the Dragon Kin (one signed by Joe if you wish) and a copy of the module in PDF format. The reward is limited to one backer!
$10 / Extra Printed Copy of Module: If you are backing at the Printed Module reward level or higher, you can purchase an additional copy of the module for $10. Just add this amount to your pledge. Joe will sign the extra copy too!

The document features a new piece of artwork and is provided as a printed letter (on parchment-like paper) for those backers receiving a printed copy of the module, while others receive a PDF of the letter. Show it to your players during the game for extra realism! LOCKED.

One final note: 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
The project risks are pretty minimal for such a basic RPG module. We don't anticipate any delays or issues, but once in a while they happen due to the detail level of an encounter or two.
I want to create a top-notch module, so extra updates, testing and final tweaking may be required. If and when this causes a delay, it will be for making the best product that I can on budget!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
