This project will only be funded if it reaches its goal by Fri, March 22 2019 12:00 AM UTC +00:00.
UPDATE: There is now additional rewards for international backers with options for a 6x9 at Cost Print of Demand copy of both zine combined into one book. Also, all backer levels will receive PDFs fulfilled through Drivethrurpg.
The Isle of The Amazons (TIOTA) is an optional setting designed specifically for Untold Adventures by Ennie Award winning author and designer, James M. Spahn. However, as such TIOTA, is compatible with Swords & Wizardry and really any White Box based game as well as easily convertible to be used with all OSR RPG games.
TIOTA showcases the island paradise of Elencia, the home of the Amazons. It also features Amazon City, the Amazons ways, their history, other inhabitants of Elencia, dangerous locations and monsters and much more.
TIOTA details the 7 new playable classes: The Aristocrat, Disciple of the High Priestess, Guard, Muse, Psion, Sorceress & Sungia.
Tell me more, tell me more . . .
In keeping with the Kickstarter Zinequest guidelines, TIOTA will require 2 high quality A5 Staple Zines to cover the subject fully. Both issues will be completed, printed and shipped together as a packaged set for only $25 with FREE SHIPPING! Once this KS is complete, this set of zines will never be released again, making them exclusive for backers of this KS.
This project is dedicated to all women, everywhere. You all have the ability to be Smart, Strong, Beautiful, Brave & Heroic. Do not believe anyone, who tries to tell you otherwise!
TIOTA is written by BAMFsies Award winning Author and Game Design Eric Bloat and Author Michele Lee. Dan Smith did the amazing cover art and most of the interior art. OSR Legend James V. West has a few wonderful pieces that have snuck their way into the pages, elevating the material that much higher and Dyson Logos handled all the Cartography for the project.
$500 - Additional Cover Art for Issue 2
$750 - Additional Interior Art Pieces - The Queen & Captain of The Guard
$1000 - Additional Art and 4 additional pages cover the High Priestess & The Council of the Goddess.
More Stretch Goals will be announced as these are unlocked.
Why only 1 Reward Tier?
I wanted to keep this special, for the backers of this campaign, that's why this is for both issues of the zine and it's print only. TIOTA will be released later in a one volume 6x9 digest edition through Drivethrurpg where everyone will have the chance to pick up the pdf and print on demand version. Unfortunately, this KS is only shipping to U.S. and Canada due to cost, which I understand excludes my international backers. If there is a significant desire for TIOTA from International backers, I will run a International Only KS for 1 week right before the release of the 6x9 edition offering a significant savings for both PDF and Print on demand.
Risks and challenges
There are of course risks, and while I believe that I have been thorough in my research of the Do's and Don’ts while running a Kickstarter. This is my 6th Kickstarter, so I still plan for surprises and hiccups along the way. This is why the promise date is in July 2019. I feel very confident that I can deliver the rewards well before then but I recognize the need for a contingency in case problems arise. I will stay transparent in my campaign and will update the backers frequently to what is happening and the current status of things.
Some potential problem areas that I will be monitoring closely are: Printing & Shipping and Stretch Goal fulfillment.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
