Two Dark Fantasy Adventures, Two Great Systems, Just in Time for Halloween!

We are looking for your support to help us publish two great dark fantasy 64-page adventures for the Pathfinder and 5e Dungeons & Dragons games.  We love both systems and will be dual-statting the adventures so no matter which is your favorite, we'll have you covered.  Your investment will help us bring more art and layout to the project.

It is well known that Total Party Kill Games brings the pain on dark fantasy adventures, so you won't be disappointed in either of these new titles.

 

The elven thorp of Var'Lande has been destroyed, its citizens slain and a number of elven children taken captive. The evidence left behind indicates that the raiders were goblinoid, efficient, and beyond ruthless. As the centennial event known as the Garnet Gales Aurora dominates the sky, an unholy ritual is being prepared. A great evil rises as foul mantras are screamed within the chasm that holds his tomb. He is awake. His power grows. His minions are ready to do his bidding once again. If this manifestation of destruction is not stopped here, the crimson hue that currently floods the land will not just be from the light of the aurora...

Spragnokk must be stopped...at Splinter-fang Gorge.

 

Did you say bugbear mummy?  Oh yeah!  Killer art by Erin Hayes and Dio Mahesa.

Gorgeous Cartography by Alex Moore

 

Julip Vellaway, the young wife of Baron Bruce Dunhare, has been murdered, prompting a realm-wide manhunt for the killers. The trail leads to Tibud, a port city rife with crime and corruption. Within the metropolis' narrow alleyways, a new thieves' guild had emerged, its members said to have the very shadows under their command. The bodies left in the wake of this guild have wounds similar to that of the noblewoman. Bounty Hunter Terent Segnar knows this is more than just coincidence. The guild's hideout is vast and full of hazards, the dwellers wandering the underground vaults are not all human, and the evidence found within could very well damn two nations into war.  

Segnar needs your help.

$2000 - Digital PDF player's guide for the Slaughter at Splinterfang Gorge.

$3000 - Digital PDF player's guide for Noble Cause, Bloodied Hands.

$4000 - Custom cover for Noble Cause, Bloodied Hands by Dio Mahesa.

All additional TPK Swag will come separately from the kickstarter project. We will fulfill any orders in-house and invoice you for actual shipping, keeping your costs low. Just increase your pledge amount to add on any items and we'll ask you about them during the survey.

William Tucker has been writing articles for Kenzerco's flagship magazine KNIGHTS OF THE DINNER TABLE on and off for five years now. He has penned six supplements for the HackMaster game system, including the adventures "Mugful of Mayhem" and "Shadow Over Tiwidu." When asked about his approach to game-mastery, William stated, "If your players are not physically limping away from the table at the end of the night, you may as well hang up your dice bag."  

Brian Berg is the creative force behind TPK Games, and is adding additional levels of danger and depth to the adventures. Brian has contributed to several 5-Star adventures such as 'The Bleeding Hollow' and 'The Fen of the Five-Fold Maw.'

What does print on demand at cost mean?  

When these adventures are complete and ready for release, you will receive a link from DriveThruRPG to the print on demand copy at the manufacturer's cost. You'll pay DriveThruRPG an estimated $10 + shipping to your location and they will print and ship to you directly a full color copy of the book.

Why do this you ask?  Well, for one, TPK Games is a small operation.  Having our team focused on creating instead of shipping and inventory means you'll get your product much faster.  Also, this model allows us to keep the shipping costs down FAR lower than what we could if we printed them ourselves and shipped them individually through the USPS.  Your pledge will get to you faster and cheaper. It's a win/win.

Risks and challenges

These adventures are written, but we are going to add more art and layout during the kickstarter. TPK Games is an experienced game company with numerous adventures and Kickstarter projects under their belt. We look forward to providing you with two quality adventures.
