West of Khazan along the southern coast lie the blighted lands of the Sketthor-Ka, also known as the Skeleton Men. A thousand years before the rise of Lerotra’hh, the Sketthor-Ka had their own empire, ruled by sorcerer kings who fell into dark practices that turned them into vampire lords. That empire fell when the great wizards of Trollworld banded together to stop the vampiric plague spreading out from the city of K’horror.
But the ancient vampire lords were not completely destroyed. They retreated underground to hidden tombs and vaults, leaving their surviving subjects to exist as best they could in the ruins above. Now the undead threat is rising again.
Adventurers have learned of the ancient tombs and undead sanctuaries. The bravest of them are searching and digging into forgotten crypts and subterranean palaces in search of magic and treasure, unwittingly releasing ancient terrors that had slumbered for a millennium. Enterprising skeleton men like your guide, Slimius, now lead adventurers to the entrances of such tombs, barred from entering themselves, but perfectly willing to share the treasure with those who can face the undead terrors in the Vaults of K’horror. Are you up to the challenge of robbing vampires in their own lairs?
Vaults of K’Horror is a full-size 40+ page gamemaster adventure
complete with maps, characters and background material for Deluxe Tunnels & Trolls. All the main art, text maps and graphics for this book are completed and ready to go to press. We are adding some stretch goals, which includes a Vaults of K'Horror based 19 page solo adventure, customized mini-rules, a collection of NPCs submitted by backers, and a backers honor list, but other than that, we are ready to send this project to the printers, so the wait time for you getting this new book is going to be minimal.

STRETCH GOAL #1 - K'Horror T&T solo by Ken St Andre At this level we will add a brand new 19 page solo adventure by Ken St Andre.

IMPORTANT SHIPPING NOTICE: Every kickstarter, I get burned by shipping costs. We can mail via media mail to USA addresses, so I am not adding any postage to USA. Postage is built into the price. But we always get a lot of backers outside the USA, and for these I have put in a price of $15. I am almost certain it will cost more that than, possibly much more. When it is time to ship (outside the USA) I will find out exactly what the postage will cost me and if it is more than $15 I will send you a bill. If it is too much and you want to cancel instead, I will send you a refund, no hard feelings.
One flaw of kickstarter is that you cannot back the same project twice if there are two different rewards that you want. So we always have an "add on" list. If you want any of the following, in addition to the level you backed for, just add this amount of money to your pledge:

Risks and challenges
Please remember that all delivery dates are ESTIMATES, not a promise. There are any number of things that can go wrong on a project. We are printing this in the USA so there won't be any customs problems, but things could still go wrong. However Steve, Ken, and Rick have been publishing game books for over 30 years. We know how to do it, and are looking forward to getting this one printed.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
