Crisis of the World Eater is a campaign serial adventure path for the Pathfinder RPG. This campaign serial takes place across a multitude of third party publishers campaign settings.

This epic campaign serial begins with an optional prequel adventure, A Warning Too Late, for those who would rather for players who want to start the story from the very beginning and can be incorporated into any fantasy-based setting.  

Crisis of the World Eater Prequel: A Warning Too Late is a 14-page adventure written by Michael McCarthy for 5th level player characters. It is currently available at RPGNow.com!!!

Crisis of the World Eater Alpha: Immortal Wrath of the Armageddon Angel is a 40-page adventure written by Michael McCarthy for 6th to 8th level player characters.

An angel of destruction falls from the sky, threatening the very heart of the Empire of Confederated Nations. Our heroes must reach the heart of a city under attack from above and confront the angel - Asa the Seeker. Yet even with the Asa's defeat, the world is in danger from his approaching master: the only hope is to delve into the Vault of the empires founders and recover the very thing they used to make it great: the Seed of Change, an artifact with the power to erase even a god.

In addition to the adventure, this book includes:  

  • Details on the Empire of the Confederated Nations
  • Detailed statblocks and histories for three key NPCs
  • Entropy - new monsters you can use in any campaign
  • Recharging magic, and other superpower themed alternate rules to keep your players all day long

Crisis of the World Eater Delta: Devourer of a Thousand Worlds is a 40-page adventure written by Michael McCarthy for 12th to 14th level player characters.

The end has come! Saitan, the Deliverer of Omega has arrived with the intent of reducing the world to ash. The heroes must take to the skies and fight their way up to Saitan's planet-sized home in a salvaged ship, and confront the titan head on! But greater powers still intervene in the fight, and amid exploring a Saitan's impossibly huge vessel, the party is drawn into another world entirely. In this surreal landscape, the heroes must stand toe-to-toe with entities that shape reality and probability itself and prove they have what it takes to face the titan and stop her once and for all!  

In addition to the adventure, this book includes:  

  • Details on Seeds of Change, powerful artifacts intended alter the history of entire worlds
  • Detailed stat blocks and histories for three key NPCs
  • A selection of drones - new robot-like monsters you can use in any campaign
  • Notoriety, superpower-themed alternate rules that allow your players to spend reputation instead of gold

Crisis of the World Eater Omega: Inheritor of Entropy Heart is a 40-page adventure written by Michael McCarthy for 18th to 20th level player characters.

Saitan's defeat proved only the beginning, and now distant planets are pulling themselves apart in the skies! Worse still, one of the greatest allies of the fight has gone missing - and now needs to be rescued from a vessel that exists in many places at once. Our heroes find themselves embroiled in a fight for the very future of existence itself, and are forced to confront the new herald of Omega, the leader of a shadowy organization that has been dogging them since their journey began. The decisions they make throughout this adventure will cement the fate of their empire, their world... and maybe all of existence itself.

In addition to the adventure, this book includes:  

  • Detailed stat blocks and histories for twelve high-level allies and adversaries, including how they might influence your games in any campaign setting.
  • Click! Alternate rules for handling traps that allow players to handle traps in more proactive and engaging ways.

When we reach our stretch goals, we have more options waiting for a chance to strut their stuff. Join us today, and let's make Pathfinder campaign worlds better, stronger, wilder and very interesting!

List of Third Party Publishers (3PP) collaborating on this project

We have put together a very impressive list of 3PP for the Pathfinder Role Playing Game for the first time ever to work together on a project of this epic level. 

Patronage and Funding

The fundraising goal we have for this project is $3,000 in a little under 35 days. We feel that amount will be enough to provide us with the cost of writing and artwork for this project so we can send copies of it out to the premiere retail gaming locations. We hope that we will be able to raise greater than the asked amount to include all kinds of interesting upgrades and add-ons to this project.

What if you don’t meet your goal?

One of the most important questions I am sure you asking is: What if the Campaign Serial doesn't fund will you still complete the AP? Why should I pledge at the beginning of the campaign for the "full" campaign serial if I don't know it will be completed? 

No matter happens, the Campaign Serial will be completed. The Crisis of the World Eater Campaign Serial is an incredible story based off of a well-known and respected premise. If all the adventures are not funded completely through this Kickstarter, it means we will take a longer “road” to complete this. With this Kickstarter, our plans will be able to be completed much quicker. We are doing this campaign serial, we just want to make it the best campaign serial it can be. 

The reason we want you to support this campaign serial from the start because it shows your interest, zeal, and passion for the project. But most importantly, success creates MORE success for a Kickstarter project. The better this project does the more additional content we can add to it. Potential fans will become happy donors at a rapid pace when they see that this project is taking off like a rocket and growing fast. Jumping aboard early only helps boost the success of this project. We know all of fans are assured and self-confident that this project will fund fully and further than expected, but this is always a risk.

While there is a lot of material here, we have not showed you everything with this kickstarter. As we keep reaching higher and higher goals we will reveal more and more exciting rewards we have planned.  So keep check back with us and this amazing kickstarter!

Risks and challenges

Our challenge lies in the ability to raise the funds needed to cover the initial costs of the project. Specially the authors, artist, editors, layout, printing.

Once funded our risk is low as we have shown that we can produce quality books in a timely manner. We already fulfilled our Obsidian Apocalypse Campaign Templates for Pathfinder RPG, Free RPG Day NeoExodus Adventure for Pathfinder RPG and NeoExodus Adventure: Origin of Man for Pathfinder RPG.

However, bonus goals added to this project might delay delivery but we will communicate that. We take very seriously our commitment to fulfill on time.
