About this project
Adventures in Awesfur
Welcome to a land of mystery and danger, where anything is possible and a simple life is unheard of. Rocks Fall Games is proud to present our initial series of Campaign Setting modules, designed to be compatible with the Pathfinder role-playing game system. Beginning with the Adventures in Awesfur Campaign Setting Guide and moving into the Legendary Adventures Trilogy, we provide the backdrop for your games: locations, cultures, characters and more to enrich your gameplay. As avid role-players ourselves, we know how difficult it can be to give great gaming experiences when you have to write all of the content yourself often without any guidance or direction. Our goal is not to just give you setting information for the stories your group plays out in a session, but to also give you the tools for creating your own stories within a consistent world.
Rocks Fall Games
Before we delve into the product line, allow us to tell you the story behind the creators. With over three decades of table-top role-playing game experience between us, we have decided to share our creations with you. Co-founders Kristofer Konkel and Charles Marleau each began playing table-top RPGs well before high school. While Kristofer strayed towards the widely different tactical simulation and narrative games, Charles spent a great deal of time home-brewing free form gaming experiences. Eventually, we met on the common ground of the Open Gaming License, digging into the mechanical aspects of an established setting to forge our own versions of a classic fantasy game. Now, with the drive to contribute to the gaming community, we formed Rocks Fall Games in order to present you with great adventures at great prices.
Our mission is to create modular products easily used by novice and experienced game masters alike to provide a greater depth to your games. We designed a world built of nations, each with their own specific tone. While the Adventures in Awesfur Campaign Setting Guide gives a global perspective and overview of the world, each entry into the Legendary Adventures Trilogy will narrow the scope to a specific nation and the associated playstyle. The Wyldelands produces a fantastic setting for action oriented games; The Kingdom of Elsidor offers political intrigue and espionage; The Island of Jacuba grants a swashbuckling good time of piracy and devilish deals. Each guide will provide the tools necessary to play a game within the setting because we aim for a 'Plug and Play' style of modularity. Furthermore, each setting is designed to help you and your players view the classic fantasy elements of your games with fresh eyes. By using our experience, we strive to re-imagine the familiar aspects of fantasy in order to provide a variety of unique and interesting experiences for you.
Each guide will be tailor-made to cater to a particular style of play. Therefore, we will include several game mastering tips to help you make your games better! Alongside detailed maps, city and town descriptions, NPC profiles, and an assortment of adventure hook ideas, these tips will allow you to create a fuller game experience for your players. If you are on a limited time-frame or simply run into writer's block, we also offer The Legendary Adventure Pack - a bundle of nine adventures guiding the group through a variety of playstyles within the scope our Legendary Settings.
The Importance of Contribution
In order for us to deliver a satisfying product to you and your playgroup, a few things are absolutely essential: artwork, licensing and production equipment. In plain English: artwork costs money and high-quality artwork costs more. In order to deliver the quality of product that our fans deserve, we have to be able to pay for the artwork. Furthermore, each guide we write requires a handful of associated fees in order to be published. Lastly, we require your contributions to deliver these products in a timely manner. You deserve fantastic material and we want to give it to you soon, not simply whenever our schedules allow.
We would like to thank you for taking the time to check us out and consider contributing to our project. If you are interested in us and our products, please give what you can. If table-top role-playing games aren't something you are into, please refer a friend. Feel free to contact us through our Facebook page (our website is under construction), and please also check out the artwork of Jose Ivan Negron http://jins-violent-angels.deviantart.com/ Thank you for your time and have a great day!
Our products will feature new creatures, spells and player races.
It's a series of campaign modules for the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game all set in the fantastic world of Awesfur.
Our design philosophy is for modular play on a budget. You buy what you need for a great price without getting a bunch of material you'd never use! So, we focus on helping you deliver the experience your players want when playing Pathfinder.
We have a whole line of related products that we're planning on releasing!
