Rundown #12: Thank you all for backing Davis Chenault's Den of Iniquity on Kickstarter! It has been a fantastic run and far exceeded our expectations! Trollzah and thank you again!

Castles & Crusades: Raglesborg Den of Iniquity is the next installment in the Inzae adventure series by the co-creator of Castles & Crusades: Davis Chenault. Raglesborg Den of Iniquity is an  80+ page adventure module that plunges you into that city of thieves. With over 60 encounter areas, a hundred+ NPCs, and hundreds of adventure ideas, Raglesborg is a true treasure trove for your gaming table. 

Why Kickstarter

Three Years and Running thanks to your support! With this Kickstarter, we intend to bring to all fans of Castles and Crusades and especially those who have ravaged through the Death in the Treklant, Bergholt: By Shadow of Night, and Bergholt: Beneath the Black Moon series another installment in the line to more fully flesh out the Inzae setting. We proudly bring to you, the most dangerous city in the world, Raglesborg: Den of Iniquity.

Furthermore, all that content, needs its own box. With this Kickstarter we intend to raise funds to manufacture a box designed to contain all the Inzae material. Called Crucible of the Dragon, this box set will be large enough to hold Death in the Treklant, By Shadow of Night, Beneath the Black Moon and Raglesborg, as well as the world map and primer!

The City of Raglesborg

Located on the coast near Bergholt and south of Halpveg, Raglesborg is hidden in those deep and treacherous fjords of that untamed and brutal land, the Urstin Peninsula. Raglesborg, like the wild and treacherous lands about it, is a city like no other in the known world. 

Peopled with pirates, cutthroats, brigands, thieves, murderers and worse, this is a horrid city. Most of the wretched seafarers who pirate the turgid waters of the Interzae, the cruel bandits who roam darkened roads, and the malicious outlaws who prey on the weak eventually make their way to this city of thieves. They come to trade in ill-gotten goods, revel in sins with the plunder of their criminal labors or hide away from those who seek to impose upon them the laws and rules that bind other men together. Raglesborg is not for the faint of heart. Danger abounds! 

Mountains of gaming material, NPCs and adventure hooks.

Raglesborg is a completed manuscript. Its ready for editing and a little art. All we need to do is raise the funds to make it all happen.

About the Crucible of the Dragon Box

The Crucible of the Dragon box set is the adventure arc that begins with Death in the Treklant and ends with Den of Iniquity. The box will be a sturdy game box and large enough to contain the adventure books Death in the Treklant, Bergholt: By Shadow of Night, and Bergholt: Beneath the Black Moon, Raglesborg: Den of Iniquity, the World Map and Inzae Primer.

Though the box has not been made yet. It will follow the form and design of our previous Aufstrag and Canopy of Green boxes. Check out the video to see the quality. 

Do I need Inzae to play Raglesborg?

Not at all. Though all of Davis’ material is created and written for Inzae, it is easy enough to port to any homebrew or other setting. 

Do I need the other three books to play Raglesborg?

Not at all. Raglesborg is only loosely tied to Death in the Treklant, By Shadow of Night and Beneath the Black Moon. Use it or ignore it as you see fit.

Do I need the Castles & Crusades Rules Set to play Raglesborg?

That would probably be a good idea, however, C&C is an attribute-based RPG created in 2004. It is very similar to other RPGs on the market today, including the 5th Edition of the world’s most popular RPG.

What do I need if I want to start playing Castles & Crusades?

The cornerstone book for the GM (our CK) and the player is the Players Handbook. Scoop up the Monster book (any one of the three) and you have all you need. Check out all 100+ Castles & Crusades titles in our store here

What comes in the $10 Pledge level? Do I get the encounters?

The $10 pledge level comes with the Raglesborg book and any and all pledge levels that are included in that book. For instance, each of the Encounter Areas added via stretch goals are included in that level.

What about an All Digital Level?

Its already there! Pledge at the $10 level and add on the digital content from the list below to build it. For instance, if you want to add the Digital version of Death in the Treklant, choose the $10 pledge level and add $10 to that for a total of $20.

I have some of these books but not all. Where do I get them?

Use this list to ADD-ON to your pledge.  For those not familiar with Kickstarter, you simply increase your pledge by whatever amount you choose for the add-ons.  Then when the survey comes out, you will let use know what the extra money is for.

Shipping

Shipping costs will be assessed during our survey, which comes from BackerKit soon after the Kickstarter closes. Please Note: We try to keep shipping costs at a minimum. While this is mainly a book oriented Kickstarter, any add-ons or extra books or merchandise (if any is offered) may cause the shipping price to rise, especially if the order is international (out of the US). Please contact productsupport@trolllord.com if you have any questions about shipping before you pledge.

Risks and challenges

One of the greatest challenges we face is creating such a large book and maintaining the quality of the printing and binding. In order to do this, we must find a printer with the knowledge and capabilities to execute a book of this size and have it look polished and professional, something we take great pride in. This will cost more than the usual printing, so Kickstarter becomes essential in raising enough capital to give this book the quality it demands and deserves.

We are confident that with a successful Kickstarter we can bring this product to the world not only as a great resource, but also as a great looking book.
