STRETCH GOAL ONE - £4,500 target: Rough Guide to the Pit
This pdf only reward will be sent to all backer levels if the total gets to the stated amount. Written by monster supremo Andrew Wright of "Beyond the Pit" fame, this guide will tell you all you need to know about the home plane of the Demons!
Arion Games revived the Advanced Fighting Fantasy RPG some seven years ago, revamping this British classic of the 1980's for a new gaming generation. Since then, we have added many additional sourcebooks with new monsters, herbs, adventures and even a SciFi version.
Now we bring you our fourth AFF Kickstarter: Demons of Doom. Previous AFF books have assumed that the player characters are Heroes, fighting to save the world of Titan from evil. This book is something just a little bit different.
In Demons of Doom, the player characters are the Demons, brought to Titan for some nefarious end. They start out as lowly Demonspawn or other minor Demon, but as they grow in power, they change their form and can become a Fire Demon or even a powerful Night Demon! However, if they get defeated too often, they may end up as a Demonspawn again...
This is a lighthearted take on an Advanced Fighting Fantasy game, with outrageous Demonic powers and strange characters and provides an alternative way to experience the long-developed world of Titan.
The book has already been written and is in the process of being proofread and laid out (~90+ pages), and will feature a mixture of new and classic artwork. This all means that the pdf should be ready for delivery when the money is sent to us by KS two weeks after the close of the campaign and the print books should be sent out fairly soon after that.
The book will contain:
- Demon character creation
- New and updated game rules
- 42 different Demon forms
- New magic items
- Rules for Demonologists including new spells and rituals
- Guidance on Demon-focused campaigns
- An introductory adventure
(requires the AFF2e core book. The Heroes Companion, Out of the Pit, Beyond the Pit and Titan will all prove useful)
This book can also be used in a classic AFF campaign to provide the Director with powerful and not so powerful enemies for their Heroes to face and defeat.
When the backer survey is sent out, there will be the option of adding on extra Arion Games books to minimise postage costs. These will be handled on a case by case basis, so let us know if you are interested in that.
Risks and challenges
The book is written and much of the art is already extant. Before the end of the campaign the layout and proofreading will be finished and hopefully test print copies ordered.
Although there are theoretical risks, these should be absolutely minimal.
