About

EverWrought: The Perils of Promise is a traditional pen-and-paper fantasy role playing game setting where you and your friends can take on the role of characters you create in an exciting new world! If you’ve ever wanted to play those games, but were unsure how to start, we can help. In addition to being compatible with major, more complex systems, EverWrought also includes its own simple rules for playing called House Rules. You can use those until you need to grow in to more complex system. (You can also skip over the Our Compatibility section, and read the next section for you, Our World.)

We have designed a campaign setting compatible with Pathfinder, Dungeon World, Fate Core System, and Dungeons and Dragons (4th Edition and hopefully Next as more information is made available about the license.) What we are trying to accomplish, for those of you running games, is to put everything in one convenient box: a (~350 page) campaign setting, 3 double-sided maps, and 10 minis. We also made it easy to run the combat/encounters sections linearly, or simply sandbox some of our environments for more open ended play. The campaign is designed in such a way that you can repurpose most of the content in your existing worlds. The planned Add-Ons below will add to the game, but are not required (though we cannot imagine not wanting Bloody Minis!)

We also designed the books so you can skip ahead to the parts that are system specific or relevant to your game. With that in mind, to read more about the campaign setting, skip to the Our World section below, or jump over to the Our Tiers to see the rewards.

From its very creation until now, the world of EverWrought has always been at war. It started amongst the gods whose fierce struggles created and shaped the world, but the bitter torch of conflict has been kept alight ever since by EverWrought's two massive continents. Stuck in between these continents are The Footprints, hundreds of islands that temporarily divide the conflicting continents. Some of the islands are aligned with the North, and others fly the standard of the South, but almost all wish the war had ended long ago. In the thick mire of The Footprints lies a small, unregarded island named Promise, the sleepy township mingling with towering trees where our story takes place.

We sell complete sets in boxes. The basic set, or Green Box tier is the retail box that is listed here for $50 (MSRP $59.) Every set has a book, minis, and maps, but the special White Box tier contains a limited "8-Bit Edition" box with special artwork, signatures from the creators, and a 2” mini and side quest that can only be obtained in the White Box tier. Of course if you like playing and collecting, the Cake Box has one of each. For other tiers including custom designed minis, check out the boxes on the right.

Our Green Box Tier (or Basic Set):

Contents: The Adventure Book, 3 Double-Sided Maps, Ten Total Minis (1 NPC Thief Mini, 1 NPC Dwarf Mini, 1 NPC Necromancer Mini, 1 Swamp Demon (Development Name), 2 Swamp Elementals, 2 Zombie Minis, and 2 Skeleton Minis.)

Our White Box Tier (or 8-Bit Edition):

We loved our RPGs on the NES and Sega, so we made a pixel art cover and fashioned the box to resemble cartridge boxes. The box is hand-signed by the creators and includes a limited edition figure only available in the white box.

Contains: All of the contents of the Green Box, An Original Box Design, Signatures from the creators of EverWrought, A Limited Edition copy of The Night Terror side quest and mini.

Our Other Tiers: For our other tiers (including making a mini from your design) see the sidebar to the right. Every contribution counts, and it starts at $1!

Bloody Add On ($50) - Contains all of the minis in the core set, but slightly beaten to show damage. This includes NPC and monster minis. Clarification: If the mini count gets upped in our Goals, so does the amount of Bloody Minis!

Dwarf Pack ($25) - A set of four dwarves (2 male, 2 female) to use as your character in our story. Classes include Fighter, Cleric, Rogue, and Wizard.

Elf Pack ($25) - A set of four elves (2 male, 2 female) to use as your character in our story. Classes include Fighter, Cleric, Rogue, and Wizard.

Halfling Pack ($25) - A set of four halflings (2 male, 2 female) to use as your character in our story. Classes include Fighter, Cleric, Rogue, and Wizard.

Half-Orc Pack ($25) - A set of four half-orcs (2 male, 2 female) to use as your character in our story. Classes include Fighter, Cleric, Rogue, and Wizard.

Human Pack ($25) - A set of four humans (2 male, 2 female) to use as your character in our story. Classes include Fighter, Cleric, Rogue, and Wizard.

EverWrought T-Shirt ($20) - Show the world that you supported us before they knew about it (you hipster you!)

Wrought Iron Box White Box Add On ($10) - We heard you loud and clear: you want both boxes! So, if you pledged at the Wrought Iron Box level or higher, you can now Add On the White Box for only $10. 

Note: To get these amazing Add Ons, pledge to the level desired, come back to this Kickstarter page and click the “Manage Your Pledge”. (If you have not pledged a level yet, the button will read “Back This Project”.) You will then increase the Pledge Amount by the total Add Ons desired. Once the Kickstarter has ended, you will receive a survey to explain how you would like the funds allotted. This will also give you the opportunity to give us shirt sizes (if applicable.)

As we get closer to Our Goals, and hopefully exceed them, the rewards just get better.

Next Goal: At $10K we are upping the mini count by 2 for a total of 12 minis in each box!

We are also designing a printable PDF for download to let friends and family members that you got them the ultimate holiday gift! Download by tier level.

Risks and challenges

As with any Kickstarter, there are risks, but we have taken every step feasible to ensure there will be no production delays. The majority of the art and sculptures has been delivered and the adventure has been play tested to ensure the most balanced gameplay. We have partners waiting to start making boxes, books, maps, and minis we just have to make sure they know how many to produce.
