About

The Project

The project is to produce a pdf module for fantasy role playing games. The location is easily used in any type of fantasy RPG campaign as a one time adventure location or as a base for adventurers. There are several threads and ideas for adventure hooks included in the module for a game master to use.

Throcksburg

Throcksburg’s claim to fame is being two days of stage travel from the major cities of Brough (to the south), Farlong (to the east), High Peaks (to the north), and Longsport (to the west). The major crossroads for the stage lines meet just north outside of the courtyard for the Broken Arrow.

Throcksburg is a self-sufficient village that is capable of supporting itself through barter and trade along with supplying everything the Broken Arrow requires. The main source of hard coin in the village is the customers’ spending money at the Broken Arrow Inn. Visitors hardly venture from the inn and into the rest of the town. Those that do find little available that the city they have left or the city they are going to cannot supply better and cheaper. Visitors in Throcksburg are ALWAYS right – whatever has to be done to gain hard coins from visitors will be done with few exceptions.

Throcksburg is also the center of many rumors and legends. It has several mysterious locations that are rumored to include great wealth. Supposedly this location was the site of the original city while the four outlying cities were part of its kingdom. But this was long ago and the Throcksburg of today has little to show that backs up these wild legends.

Rewards

Pay What You Want Level ($1 and up)

This level of support gets you a pdf file of the Throcksburg fantasy location. The module will be at least 40 pages although I am aiming for 64 pages in length. The length is dependent on the number of character retirees and the maps to be included with the module.

Retire a Character ($25)

I will work with you to bring one of your fantasy RPG characters into Throcksburg as an NPC. The character can be any race/class/level/alignment/etc. although the character will have to be simplified to fit into any RPG system - so some changes will need to be made. Retirement locations can range from a temporary base for the character with only minimal interaction with the surroundings to a nice mansion and influence in the local area and politics.

Stretch Goals

$100 - Base goal and project is funded.

$200 - Additional PDF for players. This would be the basic information of the Throcksburg area without the DM notes and details.

The Reason for the Project

I have recently updated my computer to Windows 8 and have found that my mapping software is not totally compatible. So I have a few modules to upgrade in order to improve my mapping and the money I raise from this project will pay for the upgrades.

Risks and challenges

There are slight risks involved in this project. I have been using the Throcksburg location in my home campaign for several years now and it will be mostly mapping the area with the upgraded software. The Broken Arrow Inn is already done and will require minor changes to fit in retired characters.

I have many years of experience of meeting project deadlines and fixed goals so I feel that an August 2014 delivery is easily achieved.
