Meet us online to say farewell in the morning!

Tomorrow morning, this awesome Kickstarter finally comes to an end. While I'm ecstatic at how it has brought us all together, I am saddened by the closing of this chapter. I've really enjoyed spending time with all of you both in the Kickstarter itself and on the Discord channels via the Clash of the Factions mini-game.

Tomorrow morning at 10:19 am PST you are invited to join me and the others responsible for this book in the main Rise of the Drow: Collector's Edition Kickstarter COMMENTS section. I hope to see all the factions representing by wearing their badges and look forward to visiting and sharing exciting news and reveals during the final hour of the Kickstarter which comes to a close at 11:19 am PST tomorrow morning. 

I hope to see you there! 

Your friend,


Milestone Goals / Voting Results

We just unlocked another Milestone Goal but first, I'd like to reveal some of the voting results for this book. They are listed from the earliest revealed goals down to the most recent to give you a bit of suspense. This book is destined to be the best product we've ever created both in content and quality and it is all thanks to you!

  • First Ribbon Bookmark color = PURPLE!
  • Second Ribbon Bookmark color = SILVER!
  • Metallic Endpapers color = PURPLE (42%), SILVER (34%), BLACK (23%)
  • Tier 1 Paper & Ink added! (the BEST!)
  • Rubberized Polyurethane cover texture added!

Character Reveal: Maylorin Obsidianaxe

Maylorin Obsidianaxe is the head of the Merchant Circle and responsible for maintaining stable communication between the circle and the populace whilst including the mayor in all thing. He is an elder dwarf and has been involved in trading and politics for nearly a century. He sees the drow threat as very real but is confident there are ways and means to resolve such matters. 

Since most of the dwarven warriors have been captured (along with their caravans) Maylorin sought help elsewhere, asking Miah to contact his cousin Quorron on the surface and ask for aid from the Upperworlders. With the Underworld upset by the drow play for power, no one in this realm can be fully trusted and the dwarves must, for the first time, look to an otherwise-impartial outside source. Many in Embla would see this as a sign of weakness, so Maylorin has performed this action with neither the mayor’s consent nor that of the Merchant Circle.


NPC Gallery Expansion

You've already unlocked expansions on numerous NPCs but there's more to go. Let's work together to reach $200k and unlock all the goals!

New Battlemap from Gale Force Nine!

The Underworld Caverns #2 Battlemap add-on was unlocked as the final Backer Goal at 1,500 backers. This map ties together with the first map we revealed. Underworld Caverns #2 is a professional vinyl battlemap and will be printed by Gale Force Nine, the same company that makes all the official Dungeons & Dragons accessories. There's even a hidden drow room on this map so you can spring a surprise on your players or create a secret meeting place for your drow characters!

Add this onto your pledge for $30!

Last Chance to Claim Add-ons

This project ends in the morning!

Increasing your pledge grants you access to add-ons whilst simultaneously increasing overall funds thereby unlocking stretch goals. We are happy and grateful for your pledge just the way it is but if you'd like to add cool Underworld goodies before this Kickstarter project closes for good, please be our guest!
