About this project

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. 

1. Rules for Sex

2. Class Options (Core Class Options)
3. Feats and Traits
4. Pregnancy
5. Magic
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)
9. Appendices
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 exclusive IMPASSIONED version of a Talented Adventurer PDF by Margherita Tramontano. A normal version of this character, a witch, is due out by Rogue Genius Games from Christina Stiles Presents very soon. The exclusive version adds erotic art, new info from the rules, and information on the character's love life.

 

The authors talk about The Book of Passion's contents and inspirations on The Other Side and Stargazer's World

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

Come by and like the Misfit Studios Facebook page and Christina Stiles's author page to learn about this and other projects we are up to.  

We are at 71%, so I'm starting to list the stretch goals with money amounts! Please note that $10 and $20 backers do benefit by stretch goals that increase the size of the book, such as the class options.

 

 

 

  • Bestiary.
  • Art prints and bookmarks and buttons.
  • Adult coloring book.

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, and Peter Bradley. 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' hands

    Passion's Apprentice

    All the rewards of the God/Goddess of Love and Lust. Plus, for a year from the ending date of the project, a Passion's Apprentice gains one-on-one email and Skype access to Christina Stiles and Robert H. Hudson, Jr. Please note that Christina teaches a class on writing tabletop roleplaying games at Winthrop University, where students pay almost $1800 for four-month access to her knowledge and feedback, so this is a bargain!

    The two will teach you the ropes of writing gaming material. Give you and allow you to directly pitch material to us. Former apprentices like Rich Howard (best known for his 5e work) have gone on to start strong freelancing careers.

    If we like your work, we'll also give you opportunities to write for our upcoming products, many of which will be kickstarted in the near future.

    Shipping for any print products is included in this pledge.
