The Book of Passion, by authors Will Wells and Margherita Tramontano, adds role-playing rules for love and sex to your OGL 3.75 campaign. Long-time game designer/editor/developer, Christina Stiles, will publish the book via Misfit Studios. The 208-page book will reflect the most recently available 3.75 classes from the rule set's main publisher, if stretch goals are met.
2. Class Options (Core Class Options)
3. Feats and Traits
6. Sexual Societies
7. Sex and Religion
8. Iconic (a 5th- or 7th-level version of an iconic from authors and backers; the entirety of the iconics will go in a standalone stretch goal PDF)
10. OGL Information
This project is to publish a color PDF/hardcover of the book, ensuring payment for the authors, developer, artists, and layout person. The book's included artwork will depict nudity and sexual situations. The book supports a diverse look at the subject matter, meaning it is not strictly aimed at a heterosexual audience; it is LGBTQ friendly.
EVERY backer receives an IMPASSIONED version of a Talented Adventurer PDF by Margherita Tramontano. A normal version of Marena is available from Rogue Genius Games from Christina Stiles Presents. The impassioned version adds erotic art, new info from the rules, and information on the character's love life.
150 Backers are UNLOCKED! That means ALL backers (including $1 backers) will receive a PDF exclusive IMPASSIONED version of the Talented Rogue by Will Wells.
175 backers is unlocked! That means that every backer at the $20 and above level will now receive PDFs of all standalone Stretch Goals that we reach!
We've reached an amazing 200 Backers! Just as promised we've now unlocked an exclusive IMPASSIONED version of the Talented Bard, PDF, by Kimberly Wells. All $20+ level backers will receive this PDF.
You can connect with the authors, developers, editors, and artists on our Book of Passion Facebook page. You can ask questions there, make suggestions, and get a sneak peek at some of the more sensual art. You can also reach the authors and others here on the Book of Passion thread on the Paizo Forums.
We are funded, and the first stretch goal has been met! Please note that $10 and $20 backers do benefit by stretch goals that increase the size of the book, such as the class options.

The authors, Will Wells and Margherita Tramontano, are relatively new to game writing, but have both done previous work for Misfit Studios developer, Christina Stiles, and have proven their design chops.
The book is developed by Robert H. Hudson, Jr., main author of Misfit Studios' Bite Me! The Gaming Guide to Lycanthropes, and developer of further Bite Me! products and Strange Brew: The Ultimate Witch and Warlock line.
Mike Welham will serve as the main editor, and Christina Stiles will publish (via Misfit Studios) and provide additional editing. Christina has been working in the tabletop industry in some manner for over 17 years.
Artists include Jacob Blackmon, Marc Curlee, Peter Bradley, Liz Courts, Indi Martin, and LARRY DIXON!. Some of these artists have previously worked on Bite Me! and/or Strange Brew.
Risks and challenges
Yes, every project has its risks. Christina has worked on other kickstarter projects, and currently has two open projects, with one nearing completion--with the other not too far behind.
The participants in this project all have day jobs and family lives. Illness, life-situation changes, and other problems often cause delays, but we are through development on this project and are sending edited files to layout as they are completed. Additional editors will be brought in if the time line slips.
We will all do what we can to ensure a final product and any stretch goals make it into our backers' handsLearn about accountability on Kickstarter
