Amazing Adventures Just got “Amazinger”!

We really want to see the Amazing Adventures Companion come out in hard back! We’ve hit the Amazing Adventures core book and the Manual of Monsters, both are out in hardback. But the Companion is lingering behind.

So we are going to up the ante with MORE BOOKS.

If we reach 21K and If you’ve pledged $99.00 we’re going to throw in ONE extra copy of the Amazing Adventures Core Book. If you’ve pledged $250.00 we’re going to throw in an extra FOUR extra copies of the Amazing Adventures Core Book. This brings your whole group to the table with books in hand! Spread the word!

10K by Friday: Achieved!  You answered our challenge! Now levels $99 and above will also get an extra copy of the Amazing Adventures core book, this time in digest size! Perfect for taking on planes, on trips or when you don't want to carry the big copy around. We used to do this for the C&C core book once upon a time and it was very popular then. We hope you will enjoy this!

We released Jason Vey's Amazing Adventures at Gencon 2012. We released it as a simple, one book, softcover RPG that contained all the essentials to get you playing in a madcap world of Pulp adventure. Two years on, it's time to give this game a make over.

What is Amazing Adventures?

It is Pulp Siege! The newest core game powered by Troll Lord Games' celebrated SIEGE engine (this is what runs Castles & Crusades). It allows you to create any type of pulp adventure hero you want, and customize them as you like! Be it arcane scholars, mentalists, tomb-raiding archaeologists, Asian martial arts masters, or gangsters and G-Men, this game has you covered. And best of all, if you're a fan of Castles & Crusades, you can pick this game up and get playing in a matter of minutes! Inside this book you'll find:

• Eight brand new character classes: Arcanist, Gadgeteer, Gumshoe, Hooligan, Mentalist, Pugilist, Raider, and Socialite
• Character customization options: Generic Class Abilities, Traits, Backgrounds, Fate Points, Pulp Costumes, Sanity Rules, and more!
• The complete SIEGE engine rules, adapted for pulp-modern gaming
• Rules for vehicular combat
• Guidelines on how to run a pulp game
• A rogue's gallery of foes, pre-generated characters, NPCs, and a ready-made adventuring society to get you up and running fast
• A complete starting adventure for 4-6 new pulp heroes
• And tons more

This Can be an Amazing Adventure!

We want the Amazing Adventures core rulebook out in Hardcover and Kickstarter is the platform to make that happen. With you on board we can not only put AA out in hardcover but we can, with a little hard work, add  Amazing Monsters to the mix and Jason's next release in the series: The Amazing Adventures Companion, filled with all manner of new material, from classes to vehicles and more.

If we hit our funding goal, the core rulebook will be in Hardcover.  We also hope to get both the Manual of Monsters and Amazing Adventures Companion through stretch goals.  We feel very strongly that if we hit $20K we can meet those goals and have all three in Hardcover!

NOTE: A note on the Manual of Monsters book. This book is taken primarily from the Monsters & Treasure and Classic Monsters books for C&C. You'll see all the familiar faces, now compiled for use with Amazing Adventures, plus a few brand new, never-before-seen creatures from your darkest nightmares!

INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING:  Please see chart below for shipping prices.  Note that they may change slightly with add-ons and stretch rewards.  Add the appropriate price to your pledge.  This will help expedite your order once the Kickstarter is over. 

$10,000: Achieved! Jason will expand the core rulebook with 10 pages of pre-made secret societies for the game and discussion of how to create secret societies.

$10,000 Secret Door: Achieved! Levels $99 and above will get 2 Players Books. These are abbreviated versions of the core books that contain just what you need to build a first level character and advance them through several levels. Eliminates the need to pass around that single copy of the core book at the table!

10K by Friday Challenge: Achieved! You answered our challenge! Now levels $99 and above will also get an extra copy of the Amazing Adventures core book, this time in digest size! Perfect for taking on planes, on trips or when you don't want to carry the big copy around. We used to do this for the C&C core book once upon a time and it was very popular then. We hope you will enjoy this!

$12,000: Secret Door: Achieved! The Amazing Adventures Book of Shadows contains everything you need to know about magic and psionics in the mysterious worlds of Amazing Adventures! This digest-sized book will contain every spell and psionic power from the core book, as well as spell lists and rules for magic and psionics in one place. A perfect quick reference for Arcanist, Mentalist, or Gadgeteer characters, this book will also become an ideal prop for the live action rules included in the Amazing Adventures Companion!  For levels $99 and above.

$13,000 Achieved!:  The Manual of Monsters will be printed in hardcover!

$15,000 Achieved!:  The Temple of the Red God Trilogy. The epic adventure that began in The Temple of the Red God continues. The heroes have emerged from that temple after stopping an ancient evil from being unleashed upon the world...but something escaped. Now, it's a race against time to stop an ancient, forgotten god from making its way into our world, and unleashing a bloodbath of pain and terror. This trilogy of modules--two of which have never before been published--is 48 pages of two-fisted horror action unlike anything your players have ever faced! For levels $45 and above.

$17,000:  Two more Player Books (see 10K above).  For levels $99 and above.

$19,000:  Special Guest Adventure Writer!  Bill Coffin has authored more than 20 role-playing products, most notably Palladium Books' The Western Empire, Century Station and Systems Failure.
