The ruined city of K'Horror - one of the color maps in this book.

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?

What horrors await you in the Vaults?

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.

This GM adventure is written by Long-time UK T&T creator Andy Holmes with art by Simon Tranter & Steven Crompton. T&T Creator Ken St Andre has edited the adventure and assured the dT&T stats and numbers. The book is being published by Flying Buffalo inc.

STRETCH GOALS

 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. This solo is directly connected to the Vault of K'horror gm adventure and was written especially for this book. This will be added at no extra charge to all backers that pledge for a copy of any version of Vaults Of K'Horror when we reach the stretch goal. We'll announce the goal level as this Kickstarter progresses. (Note; the art and layout is completed and no additional time is needed to add this solo should we reach this stretch goal.)

 STRETCH GOAL #2 - Customized Mini-RulesFor goal #2 we will add a 13 page version of the T&T Mini-rules that has been specially customized for Vaults of K'Horror with new art and weapons. When we reach this stretch goal the mini-rules will be added to the book at no extra charge to all backers that pledge for a copy of any version of Vaults Of K'Horror. We'll announce the goal level as this Kickstarter progresses. (Note; the art and layout is completed for these mini-rules and no additional time is needed to add them should we reach this goal.) 

STRETCH GOAL #3 - Wandering NPCs and Monsters
With goal #3 we will add a new chapter that lists and gives stats for additional NPCs and monsters that players might meet on their way to K'Horror or underground in the vaults of the vampire lords. Each character will be illustrated by either Steve Crompton or Simon Tranter. We'll announce the goal level as this Kickstarter progresses.This will be added to the back of the book at no extra charge to all backers that pledge for a copy of any version of Vaults Of K'Horror.

And we may have some other surprises yet to announce!...

We hope you'll join us on this grand, gothic adventure into the darker realms of Trollworld and help bring to life another chapter in Tunnels & Trolls history.  Please place your pledge today and reserve your copy of Vaults of K'Horror!

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.

ADD ONS: 

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:

  • Extra copy of the unsigned book: $16
  • Extra copy of the signed book: $22
  • Extra copy of the unsigned book if you are a retailer: $7.50
  • To add an extra name to the honor list: $10
  • To add an extra character to the book: $20
  • To add an extra illustrated character to the book: $75
  • To add a pdf of Uncle Ugly's Underground: $2
  • To add a hardcopy of UUU: $5
  • To add a paperback edition of the complete Deluxe rules: $38
  • To add a hardback edition of the complete Deluxe rules: $58
  • To add an autographed edition of the paperback rules: $45
  • To add an autographed edition of the hardback rules: $65

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.
