Ravnivori Empire: Cat and Mouse
A One Sheet style adventure for Savage Worlds highlighting the world and rules from Void Runners: Ravnivori Empire.
This project will only be funded if it reaches its goal by Mon, June 3 2019 3:40 PM UTC +00:00.
I'm looking to raise the money to pay a cartographer to create a map for me for a one page style adventure using the Savage Worlds System. The adventure will take place in my Ravnivori Empire setting (though you don't need that book or to know about it to play it as a one shot) and will feature a new race - the cat like Bastoi. There will also be a gazetteer included with additional information regarding the Bastoi and how to play them as characters.
Several years ago, I ran a Kickstarter to fund the art for my first RPG, Non-Essential Personnel. It was successful, and it has been on sale ever since. I've been writing adventures both for that system and for d20 compatible games ever since, all published on DriveThru RPG through Black Guard Press.
I've done without art because I'm no artist and someone doing art is always expensive. It has not been ideal, but it has worked.
Recently, Savage Worlds has made their own open gaming style license and I've been able to publish my largest work Void Runners: Ravnivori Empire. Again, largely without art.
I didn't want to dip back into Kickstarter because I hoped that I would make enough from my sales to pay for art as I went along.
But then, I thought - "Am I better than Steve Jackson Games? Am I better than Pinnacle? Am I better than Reaper Miniatures?" They all use Kickstarter to fund their upcoming projects and they're successful businesses.
So, here I am again, with a new Kickstarter. If it's good enough for some of the greats in the industry, it's good enough for me!
Risks and challenges
The one pager and gazetteer are already written so the only real question will be how long it will take to get the map created and incorporated.
Oh, and this will be the first time I'm getting custom dice so I'm not entirely clear on the timeline for them or how they're going to come out. They should be to me and mailed out by September, though.
