Final Week for New Paths Compendium Expanded Edition

Limited Edition New Paths Hardcover

Hey Pathfinder fans,

Hard to believe, and here it is: the Kickstarter for the revised, updated, and expanded New Paths Compendium hardcover ends Friday, July 28th! This project has been quite a success so far, and the book is going to be something special--it ships this fall! 

AND... there’s still time to make it even better!  

This project was fully funded within the first few days. Since then, we’ve hit a bunch of stretch goals, including new Death Feats, new spells, new archetypes, and a ton of additional awesome art. We also added 3 brand-new classes - the Tinkerer, Mystic Archer, and Warlock, making a total of 11 awesome new classes for your Pathfinder game!  

Better yet, there are more stretch goals within sight to add combat divinations and even more archetypes! There just might even be (OK, there definitely is) an unannounced stretch goal or two if we can get to them in this final week.  

Oh, and for those of you looking for something EXTRA SPECIAL, you can bump up your pledge and snag one of the LIMITED EDITION, foil-stamped, leatherette hardcover editions of the book shown above. Black and gold already looks good, and will be even more amazing in the final.  

If you’ve already become a backer - thank you so much!! If you haven’t yet, please check it out and consider backing today!  

Either way, we’re very excited about this book and we can’t wait to get it into as many people’s hands as possible!  

Happy gaming,

Marc Radle, Wolfgang Baur, and the Kobold crew

Deep Magic of the Midgard Project

Hello Friends and Backers,

The Deep Magic project was the first of a series of big magic-heavy books for Kobold Press--and we are continuing that tradition by printing Deep Magic for 5th Edition and expanding Deep Magic for Pathfinder RPG as part of our current project.

Midgard Campaign Setting: Dark Roads and Deep Magic expands ley line and shadow magic in the Pathfinder Player's Guide, and it brings Deep Magic to 5E in the 5th Edition Heroes Handbook.

If either of those is of interest to you, the player guides are also loaded with archetypes and Midgard races and much more. Check it out!

Happy gaming!

New Magic, New Races

Posted by Kobold Press (Creator)

If you liked Deep Magic, the Kobold crew has launched a new Pathfinder Kickstarter that expands the options for PCs and NPCs!

It's the Advanced Races Compendium, and it includes new magic items, new spells, and at least 15 races, from favorites like tieflings, gnolls, and lizardfolk to new races including the shadow fey, gearforged, and werelions.

Give it a look (the art is pretty sweet), pick up the PDF or maybe sponsor a race yourself, and add some spice to your Pathfinder campaign. Kobolds have been working on this book for a while, so this book ships by the end of 2015.

Happy gaming!

Escapist Nominates Deep Magic For Best RPG Supplement of 2014

We're incredibly pleased to share that Deep Magic is a nominee for The Escapist's Editor's Choice Award for Best RPG Supplement of 2014. Its fellow nominees are an impressive lineup indeed: Pathfinder Advanced Class Guide, The Ninth World Bestiary, 13 True Ways, and The Fate Freeport Companion

The winner will be announced in a week or so, but we can sincerely say that it's an honor to be nominated--over the past year The Escapist, previously best known for video game coverage, has become one of tabletop's must-reads, in large part thanks to the efforts of editor Jonathan Bolding. And we're not just saying that because we want them to choose Deep Magic as the winner. Although that would be great. 

We'd like to once again thank you, the backers, for making Deep Magic possible. It's been enjoyed at tables all over the world, and hey--now it might get a brand-new award! Fingers crossed.

Peculiar Alchemist Arrived From Press

The Peculiar Alchemist has arrived! 

The adventure showed up from the printer this snowy week in Seattle, and the Kobold shipping crew is getting ready to ship them out to backers (print first, PDF to follow). Actually, the first few test items went into the mail today, and I expect all the US mailings to be complete and out the door this coming Monday, December 8. They are going First Class mail, so all US Bard-level backers and up should have them in hand by December 15.

International Shipments: These always take a bit longer because of the necessity of filling out customs forms, but they will be in your hands shortly as well. 

Second Chance at Retail: Shipments to retail backers are also going soon--anyone who did not pick up this adventure as one of their rewards can get one from those friendly local stores (if you're quick!). 

I'm quite proud of this little adventure, with its nods to the Deep Magic spell corpus and to my own love of dwarves who are not quite as clever as they might think. I hope you enjoy it as well--it's highly playable and packed with lively and eccentric NPCs. 

Let me know in comments when this wild-eyed and bearded little alchemist shows up on your doorstep!
