Welcome to Sherwood Forest, a place of mystery and excitement. Band together to oppose the forces of the Sheriff and Prince John in England during the Third Crusade. Create your characters to do whats best for England and King Richard by protecting his interests at home.
This setting book allows you to play in the Medieval England of the period of the Third Crusades. There are classes designed specifically for that period. The book is designed to not only emulate the historical period, but also the mythical one as well. Play in any level you would like from historical to mythical, emulating various novels, stories and tv shows about Robin Hood.
This setting can be played in either historic or mythical mode. Historic is more realistic, leaving out magic, but in mythical mode, magic has been added to the setting allowing you to play in the fantastic. In addition to this we have a special type of Action Points called Swashbuckling Points. What these do is allow your character to do the impossible, from swinging on a rope chandelier to climbing up the wall using only a knife. In a style that emulates the early fantastical stories of the genre.
This book is written by Jonathan M. Thompson and Wil Upchurch and will be available for Pathfinder, 5e and Swords & Wizardry Role Playing. If you are interested in getting more than one version, you may purchase additional versions as add-ons.
All versions of the books are at least 90% completed, and as they are completed they will be released to the backers of those levels -- even if the completion dates are ahead of the given release dates. This way you can enjoy them earlier than expected.

Shipping is always the elephant in the room, and since we cannot control the rise in shipping costs we will instead offer you a different way to have your book shipped to you. You, the backer, will get to chose your own level of shipping. For a single pledge of $15 you will get a coupon code to purchase the book at cost from DTRPG.com. The estimated costs of the book will be about $12 to print, plus $5 for basic, media mail shipping in the United States). The books will retail for $30, plus shipping. This gives you control over how fast you want the books shipped to you as well, plus the code will be good forever, so you dont have to have it printed right away.
Risks and challenges
Like other projects of this type, this project is not without risks. Delays can happen, as we are only human. We will keep in contact with you concerning potential delays and such. The biggest possible delay will come from any stretch goals that we may include. The risk of delay happens anytime you put control in the hands of another person, who has their own issues they must deal with as well.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
