About

Tale of the Wizard's Eye, a 5th edition adventure module

$1,076

The writings of a dead paladin record the legend of the ruined city of Pintlas. Once home to the wizard Salen, Pintlas was abandoned when flooding changed the course of the river, leaving the city underwater. Salen is said to have escaped the disaster, but was forced to leave his most treasured possession, a powerful magical orb, as he fled for his life.

In the centuries since Pintlas was lost, the surrounding forest has grown dark with menace.  Now the Howling Forest erupts each night with the howls of the dying and the blood curdling cries of the damned.  Dark creatures haunt the night stalking man and beast alike. 

In drowned Pintlas something stirs under the waters.

Will you brave the terror of the Howling Forest?  Do you dare to explore the drowned city?

If you dare, if you survive, then you can tell the tale of the Wizard's Eye!

The module is entering its final play test phase, and is presently only waiting on map images (these are expected to be completed by June 7th), before final formatting can be done (expected to take a week).  Following formatting, proof copies would be ordered for a final product check.  After correction of any defects, final version will be fulfilled for backers, with printing and fulfillment through DriveThruRpg.com as indicated in the tier rewards section.

Risks and challenges

This is my first KickStarter Campaign.
That said, the module is written and the majority of art is complete.
Final play test shall be done by June 1st and file sent for proof copies by June 15th. Final release version file will be uploaded after review, and print copies should then be ready within 4 to 6 weeks (per the printer).
Delays that may occur: If maps are delayed past the date of June 7th, the project would be delayed by a period equal to that delay. (I find it highly unlikely this will occur.).
You may see a delay in receipt of print copies based on the time it takes to deliver to your location. Beyond that, the only delays I foresee would be due to shipping.
