"The Gilded Road" - a 5E adventure by Leave the Silver
The first 5e "Classic Twist" adventure by Leave the Silver for a group of inexperienced characters. There's really no place like home!
This project will only be funded if it reaches its goal by Fri, November 23 2018 6:58 PM UTC +00:00.
FIRST TEN BACKERS!!!
We couldn't find a way to do this properly with the way we wanted, so here it is:
The first 10 people to pledge $5 or more will receive a special bonus! They will receive a brand-new paperback copy of the book that started it all - "The Wizard of Oz!" We get the lists of people in order of pledges, and you get your numbers too, so pledge quick and find out if you are one of the first 10 to get yourselves a copy!
(This only applies if the Kickstarter project is a success.)
Cover Art: Evolution
Cover Art evolves as the project comes to life. It has already gone through 2 different iterations and might yet see a third, more glorious one with an old-school feel or perhaps something that looks...gilded? One never knows...
Interior Pages: Already a Change in the Wind...
The interiors have already begun to change...the basic look and feel of the original just did not appeal to us when we looked through it. We wanted something more...dare we say...luxurious. We will show you when we decide between the two we have. Here is the original. Not bad, but does not fit the feel.
Stretch Goals: Can We Do It?
(Yes We Can!)
$650 - Digital Map of the Land
If we reach $750 then we will take the current map of the land and blow it up to a nice 8.5"x11" size in digital format suitable for printing. Oh, and we will release it to all our backers in a PDF and .PNG file suitable for printing. This will be released as a separate download along with the digital adventure. The map itself? Well, we will show you all when we get there. But rumor has it that "The Gilded Road" is long, stretches out over the entire land, and links all of it together with a massive city at the heart of it all - the city of Verdigris.
$750 - Digital Map Plus
If we reach $750 then we will take the current map of the land and blow it up to a nice 11"x17" size in PDF and .PNG file suitable for printing. This will be released as a separate download along with the digital adventure.
$850 - A Little Something More
We tried for something humorous but could not get it approved in time. Therefore, more work shall be heaped upon our shoulders instead. When we reach $850, we will add a small area to the adventure that we were going to leave out of it altogether. Now, the estate of The Fairy will have its own potential encounters as well instead of just a "here's a description, but you must not go there" sort of feel to it all.
$1000 - More "Wicked" than a Witch...
This will be a strange one. And hopefully one that is within Kickstarter regulations. When we hit $1000, we will select 3 lucky winners from among our backers who pledge $5 or more. Those 3 lucky winners will receive a paperback copy (brand new, not some well-thumbed and used) of one of our favorite "Wicked" stories - "Something Wicked This Way Comes" by Ray Bradbury. We love the story, we love the movie, and we think you will love it too. And, hey - it's "Wicked."
Risks and challenges
This is our third Kickstarter project. As such, we feel we have gotten a pretty good handle on things as to how to keep on a deadline. There are, of course, always fun challenges that can crop up such as printer issues and shipping delays due to weather, but we try to plan for these as much as possible. We like to be early, but on-time is also good. We will communicate constantly as anyone will tell you from our prior projects, so you will always know the status of every little detail.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
