About this project

Welcome to the ZEITGEIST adventure path Kickstarter Booster Project. This is a great chance to contribute to a high-profile adventure path for D&D 4th Edition and for the PATHFINDER RPG, help ensure that it is as awesome as it can possibly be, and have a hand in creating the world.

ZEITGEIST: The Gears of Revolution is a thirteen-adventure series set in a world where a revolution of industry and philosophy threatens the old ways of magic and mysticism.

Omens in the starry heavens warn that a new era is nigh, but its face is hidden beyond the steam and soot of the night sky. Occult fanatics and enlightened conspirators vie for control, but heroes who are wise enough to find the truth and brave enough to fight for it will find it is their hand that will turn the wheel of the new age.

We are going to try to raise an additional $10,000 (that's about a 25% budget increase) on top of the ludicrous amounts of money we've already budgeted for this adventure path. We'll be using that extra money to add more color art, more player handouts, more words, more everything!

If we make $20,000 we'll produce an entire additional short adventure which will be available ONLY to those who contributed to this Kickstarter booster project for a period of one year. After that, we'll sell it, but for a whole year you'll be the only ones with access to the bonus adventure!

So, kick in some money and let's see what we can do!
