THE LOST TOMES - Volume 1 + DEMON BOX of RAYNETH

THE LOST TOMES - Volume 1 - 16 adventures based on a secret society known as THE LOST TOME SOCIETY. This society is made up of 16 of the very best NPCs the players might ever come across. Experts in their chosen fields, and all of them have some form of a tarnished history and back story. The 16 founding members of The Lost Tome Society are making amends for their misdeeds by hunting down the greatest and most powerful relics, artifacts, magic items and pieces of lost lore while destroying evil along the way. PCs are tasked to on adventures of 16
very diverse types, genres, as well as a different look, tone and feel
kind of variety.

Each of the 16 adventures is based around a founding member’s special skill set and the missions that correspond to said skill set. There is a FREE, 45-page PREVIEW BOOK that can be downloaded from Dropbox, but in a nutshell, these 16 adventures are based around the following:

Standard Color VS. Premium Color

There are 2 (TWO) kinds of PRINTING options available: 1. Standard Color Heavyweight 70#. 2. Premium Color Heavyweight 70#. The image above shows the two subtle differences which are: 1. PREMIUM (the higher priced item shown to the right) the paper appears to be MORE OPAQUE and less “see-thru” from printing on the back of said page. 2. PREMIUM (the higher priced item shown to the right) the paper DISPLAYS COLORS RICHER, AND MORE VIBRANTLY

PREMIUM COLOR HEAVYWEIGHT printing is offered only for REWARD PERKS #9 and #10 in the form of ONE HARDCOVER PRINTED book collecting both book, between 440-500 PAGES!

About HALF the books are done. Lots of Art, Maps, under 50% of the Writing, but I have 11 people helping me now and not just ME. I am hoping to get this into the hands of the buyers BEFORE October, but I am putting it up there as October 2018 release date just in case. Definitely want this for you before HALLOWEEN! I will try my best! It might go much quicker - who knows! We believe it will very much be worth it, regardless. Peace.

Risks and challenges

This is my 2nd Kickstarter project. My first project was successfully-funded despite allowing myself to know only 2 pros in the RPG industry. THANK YOU.

This time, I have SEVERAL people helping me, as opposed to being “just humble ole me.” I have around a dozen popular and VERY TALENTED industry professionals helping me with this project every step of the way, and there have been (and are still) ongoing discussions between DBD and several household name talents in the RPG industry. I am not in any way implying that I have become the best of friends with certain people overnight, but I AM saying that there are several A-list artists, writers and designers that ARE interested in seeing how this project does, and thereby may very well be involved with future (maybe even this one) projects! In other words, I have 500 times more support than I did several months ago. I am also PROFOUNDLY GRATEFUL for every one of my backers for my first KS project. Thank you. I will not forget your faith in me!

That said, I think that the only way this would not get done is if I got bumped off by my fictional character MANRICK CROW in the 2nd book of this very project. he is an EX-assassin, but incredibly dangerous, regardless! ; )
