Welcome to Grim Hollow: The Campaign Guide Kickstarter.
Grim Hollow is a grim dark fantasy Tabletop Role Play setting for fifth edition of “The world’s Greatest Roleplaying Game”. Set in the dark, godless world of Etharis, civilization has long forgotten hope and now clings desperately for survival.
Within Grim Hollow: The Campaign Guide Game Masters will find over 200 pages of material to set adventures in the dangerous world of Etharis or create their own Grim/Dark setting. From world lore to expanded game mechanics, the Grim Hollow Campaign Guide is specifically designed to shift the theme of a campaign from high/heroic fantasy to something much darker.
Grim Hollow: The Campaign Guide is packed at the seams with content for both Game Masters and players alike. Owners will find a plethora of fully coloured art including; characters, locations, maps and more.
Everything you need to create a Dark Fantasy character or world is included. Lore, world building tools and 5e variant rules will make your games great. New game mechanics and items will bring a whole new level of character customisation to your tabletop experience.
A disheveled knight hides his forgotten coat of arms under his cloak while he counts his gains from his recent bare-knuckle fight.
A stern witch huntress unleashes a torrent of silver bolts at a charging beast, protecting a distrusting and suspicious humankind.
A vampire lord sits in the opulent halls of aristocracy while sipping a fine goblet of blood, watching a century long scheme unfold.
Etharis is home to all manner of dark fantasy themes reminiscent of Gothic horror, gritty realism and a twist of Grimm’s Fairy Tales. From the forbidding howls of the Stillborn Forest to the dangerous schemes hatched in the city of Nov Ostoya, players will find conflict and story depth everywhere they look.
Realistic Characters: Discover a world of relatable NPC’s with complex and realistic motivations. From gallant heroes with hidden agendas to despot villains trying to redeem themselves. Players and Game Masters alike will savor these interactions.
Gritty Locations: Dark and Perilous world locations designed to bring atmosphere and immersion to your table. Whether you choose to discover them in the world of Etharis or pull them into your own setting, these locations will make your tables experience something memorable.
Compelling Story Hooks: With a world brimming with conflict, you will find ample lore, story lines and folk tales to fuel your adventures. Players will fight for every victory and mourn every loss as the world itself fights back.
