Gods and Goddesses: a 5th Edition Supplement

$32,242

731

Greetings!

Jetpack7 / Conceptopolis, the award-winning studio which helped design the new look of 5e, as well as a ton of art in its official books, is pleased to present Gods and Goddesses.

Gods and Goddesses will feature classic deities for use as a 5th edition (OGL) supplement. Inside, you will find Cleric and Paladin player character options to bring in rich levels of diversity to your new or current game. Present them as "new gods", or as "old gods" that have returned to the world. It's up to you. Change the course of events by inserting these new deities in with a surprising bang, or reveal them slowly over time.

These are contemporary portrayals of well known Gods and Goddesses of antiquity that can be inserted into any 5th edition campaign setting. What better way to add some vibrant diversity to such a wonderful game? Certainly, some of the names will be familiar, but this is your world where you can find out how these new Gods and Goddesses will have an impact beyond what has ever been seen before.

Here's a video of our work on Dungeons and Dragons:

Who is Jetpack 7? It's the publishing and original IP division of Conceptopolis, LLC who has contributed to many different well known brands, such as Dungeons & Dragons, Marvel Comics, DC Comics, G.I. Joe, Magic the Gathering, Everquest (Legends of Norrath), League of Legends, Just Cause 3, and many more.

Since we've been so successful in the past working on well-known brands, we figured it's a great time to publish our own content. Since we've been huge fans of the oldest role-playing game in the world (and now 5th Edition), we thought it was time to leverage what know and apply it to what we grew up with and love.

You've probably seen many of our pieces, having contributed to well over 100 pieces of art to the latest 5th Edition core books. We want to take that same passion and experience and create our own version of a book that is contemporary, but also pay homage to what has come before.

We are sinking everything we have into this book, because it's the book we want as fans. If it were someone else making it, we'd certainly be spreading the word. We hope you do the same.

Thank you for your support and the opportunity to make a product we can all enjoy!

 

Risks and challenges

All of the gods and goddesses are designed and conceptualized, and the artwork for the book is being finalized by the artist(s). Risks are meeting the publication schedule due to proofing errors, print quality issues, or shipping issues of one kind or another, primarily due to customs issues.

We will be working directly with the printer to avoid any unnecessary delays for the book printing schedule and have anticipated making sure all assets are received in time to maintain the schedule.

Other possible risks are scheduling the additional material from stretch goals that may push out the delivery schedule on those items, or that one of our primary contributors encounters a production delay. We're a small, but very experienced team with over 1000 unique projects delivered for dozens of toy and video game corporations. Such an event could possibly delay (but not prevent) publication, or delivery of product.

Jetpack7 has no other Kickstarter projects outstanding. We have contributed and delivered content on time to six successfully crowdfunded game books to date.
