About this project


Closing Thoughts

We are a collection of students, parents, artists and designers, who love to game. It's not just a passion, it's a bit of an obsession, and the ability to finally be typing these words, after all the development time is actually causing my hands to shake.

On a personal note, I've been gaming since I was seven, my first game being D&D run by my father, as a birthday present. Since that time I've moved through tons of systems and worlds, devoured countless source books, and spent endless hours working on every detail of "that perfect campaign." Now, here I am, 23 years later, given the honor of offering up something I've helped write, to you all. It doesn't get much better than this.

From the bottom of all of our hearts, thank you, so much for this opportunity and for your support. As it says in the video, if you can't donate at this time, please help us spread the word by posting links to this campaign on your Social Media sites, or by e-mailing it to friends. Talk us up! We can't do this without you.

Risks and challenges

Risks and Challenges: Any time you are working in a field that is already full of good companies producing great work, it's daunting. That being said, we are approaching a large market with a unique take on a classic. We are doing a Super Hero RPG in a completely new light. As far as our qualifications, we have a combined gaming history of well over 50 years. In addition, in the company, we have a number of individuals who either have degrees, or extensive experience within their particular field.

FAQ

  • Yes!

    Last updated:
  • Behind the Mask is planned as our first supplement for Exemplar. It will be released as a pdf, and will include biographical information and backgrounds for many of the prominent NPCs in Exemplar. The book will not include any statistics. It is purely a story-based text, and will give plenty of juicy bits and pieces for the GM to use to spice up their game.

    Imperial Prince: Rather than create a Gifted, the NPC we create with you will be an Imperial Prince, and reign over an Imperial State within the Empire. Your Prince will be detailed in Behind the Mask and their land will be detailed as a full write-up in the Known World chapter of Exemplar:TNRE. Also, you will receive a copy of the illustration of your character, signed by the artist. As well as all other above level rewards. International Customers, please add $20 for shipping.

    Dark Exemplar: You get to be a villain. The NPC we create with you will be a particularly nasty Dark Exemplar, who will make the lives of the PCs much more difficult. We will feature your baddie as an antagonist in their very own Savage Tale and they will receive both a stat write-up in the main book, as well as fully detailed out background in Behind the Mask. You will also receive all rewards of lower level, including the signed illustration of your character, but that's not all! You will also be invited as a special guest to our online 24 hour Design party, which will be held in January 2013. This day long craziness is intended to get the ball rolling on our next Setting Book, and you will be one of the first people to gain access. Anyone who donates at this level or above will be able to log in in the first 4 hours, and will have a large impact on the direction of the new setting. International Customers, please add $20 for shipping.

    Abomination: Live in infamy! Your NPC will be one of the dread Abominations. These antagonists are animals or humans who the change should have killed, but instead it left them twisted and full of power, driven by fury and pain. This beastie will not only feature in their own Savage Tale, and receive both stats in the main book and a write up in Behind the Mask, but they will have also totally taken over a section of the Empire. To reflect this, we will work with you to design a territory for them in the Known World chapter of the Exemplar:TNRE book. You will also receive all rewards of lower level. International Customers, please add $20 for shipping.

    Power Behind the Throne: Lead the Empire to Glory. This is the big one. The NPC we create together will be the truest friend of Emperor Stefano, and as such will be fully integrated throughout our continuity. We are incredibly flexible as to what kind of character we make. Will it be a noble hero, or a daring villain? It's your choice! This NPC will be added in whatever capacity is appropriate throughout this book, from re-writes of the book's earlier chapters on Circle politics, to stat blocks, to internal fiction. It will also feature in its own Savage Tale, as well as appearing in whatever supplements that we create for Exemplar that make sense. You will receive all above rewards, as well as signed copies of any and all future Exemplar books ever released, as well as invitations to whatever neat stuff we can think of. You are our hero.
