More Stretch Goals Unlocked and A BLIGHT MONSTER BOOK!!
The last 24 hours has seen us top $84,000 and unlock both The Blight Player's Handbook and Brandon Hodge's occult adventure extraordinaire The Crooked Nail. Now we are barely over $1,000 away from Richard Pett's free Blight novella Scoured to the Bone and just over $3,000 away from Bill Webb's vaunted entry into the Blight with his gruesome adventure Children of the Harvest.
In addition, as has been our tradition with breaching stretch goals in this campaign, I've added some new ones to further whet your appetites, and these are perhaps the most significant ones yet (other than the obvious granddaddy of stretch goals, which is to make a 5e print version of The Blight). Why are these so significant, you ask? Because they are the addition of a new monster book - The Tome of Blighted Horrors.
This softcover book includes the 24 new monsters and templates already included in the Bestiary chapter of The Blight (also found when that chapter is replicated in The Blight GM Guide), but adds 8 additional monsters to it (bringing the total up to 32) plus adds examples of encounters and sample lairs. These new monsters and the sample encounters and lairs will not be found anywhere else except within this book; it is the only way to get this expanded material. And, as you'll note in the continuing stretch goals, the number of new monsters in the book just keeps going up until there are a total of 56 monsters in it (all still for the same original price of $12, though the retail price after the KS will increase obviously) just before we hit the 5e print version stretch goal at $100,000.
But wait! There's one more thing! This is a monster book, and Frog God Games loves our monster books -- especially those of a Tome of Horrors variety. So we're breaking from stance on 5e print versions with this book. By that I mean, even if we do not make the $100,000 5e print version goal for this Kickstarter, The Tome of Blighted Horrors will still be produced in a print version for 5e along with Pathfinder and Swords & Wizardry. Allow me to repeat that:
The Tome of Blighted Horrors will be in print for 5e, PF, and S&W even if we don't hit the 100k 5e print goal.
So join in and spread the news to 5e fans everywhere. Even if they don't want a whole campaign setting or a pdf, they might still like a book of new, twisted, and depraved monsters, the likes of which could only be found in the Blight.
