Curse of the White Mine is designed as a 5E, non-linear, single session adventure. Major campaign disruptions are kept to a minimum so as not to intrude on your master plan or current quests in progress. This adventure is not arranged in a ‘railroad’ fashion. Players are not required to push through encounters in any particular order.  

This one-off adventure will finalize in the 20 page range. It will be printed in Full premium color all the way through from cover to cover.

Writing & editing is completely finalized. All of the illustration and layout is currently finished and should be complete before this project is over.
(Some playtesting and tweaking remains)

Sample pages from layout:

Adventure Background (spoiler alert)

Felgrom the hill giant discovered, then bullied, a small goblin mining tribe into serving him food and warmth within their mining caves. Little did Felgrom realize, he had accidentally bullied something more powerful than typical goblins. 

The goblins discovered, and kept secret from the giant, veins of silver and a mysterious crystal linked to their god. The crystal turns all who touch it into a goblinoid creature and it is the conduit used by Mesmet, a demoness in service to the goblin god Maglubndor, to reach the prime material plane. Through the crystal, she continually possesses one of the goblin souls under the crystal’s influence.

Risks and challenges

Risks are all printing related. I have done this numerous times and have solid experience in RPG adventure module production.

I have also managed a number of Kickstarters and delivered all as agreed, with no backers left behind. :)
