Lunar Games has completed 90% of the Tome of Spirits, with our writers slated to finish the current content around the time this Kickstarter ends. We want to deliver the best supplement we possibly can and part of that is letting you, our wonderful backers, have a say. For our stretch goals, you wanted more content, deeper lore, and (of course) more original artwork!
Once we know which stretch goals we’ve hit, we’ll get right to work. Then it’s off to editing and design before we release it to our incredible playtesters. Playtesting will last for 2 months so we can work out the kinks, then off to the printers it shall go!
So, with all that being said, there’s still time to make it better! Our first few stretch goals focus on making the Tome of Spirits bigger and better. We originally estimated the book would be around 210-230 pages, but we hope to make this a massive supplement of over 300 pages just like our Core Books!
Why Kickstarter? The funding will go toward editing the Tome of Spirits, interior book layout, as well as manufacturing costs. This campaign isn’t just for the Tome of Spirits. We know our backers want more adventures and campaigns to run in the Endless Realms universe, so we hope to produce a number of adventures from this Kickstarter that will be revealed as stretch goals along the way.
Endless Realms Runs off of a D10 system and this book contains everything you need to start exploring the world of Endless Realms, including: 9 Intriguing New Races: For players who are tired of fantasy standards like dwarves, elves, and orcs, the Corebook gives insight into unique races like the honorable lupine warriors, the Ulvar Kyr, or the rabbit-eared, all-female race, the Al'Miren. Learn about each race's history, culture, characteristics, and special abilities so you can build your own character within the world of Endless Realms.
10 Distinct Classes: From silver-tongued and sword-wielding Dandies, to Judicars, the enforcers of order, our 10 classes give players 10 wildly-different combat styles and the framework to build a one-of-a-kind character.
Unique Setting & Gameplay: The world of Lumis provides an immersive setting and gameplay that focuses on player interaction and rewards creativity for endless replay-ability and memorable experiences.
Vices & Virtues: Things aren't always as simple as good and evil in our world. Every character you encounter or create is going to be defined in part by virtues such as Loyal and Courageous, as well as at least one vice, like Narcissistic or Lazy.
Easy to Learn: The simple, yet elegant game mechanics are easy for newcomers to learn but offer enough depth to enrich your storytelling and create a seamless and enjoyable combat experience.
Engaging Design: Full-color and lavishly illustrated, each Endless Realms book is a stunning addition to any gamer's collection, and the thoughtfully-curated art is bound to catch any fantasy lover's eye.
This Creature Compendium contains full-color illustrations of over 250 creatures. This book contains everything you need to encounter, battle, hunt, and even create the creatures of Endless Realms, including: Unique Creature Design: Inside, players will find completely new creatures as well as familiar favorites with an imaginative twist, all creatively designed and skillfully illustrated.
The Creature Compendium contains a wide variety of creatures, all complete with lore, stats, and gorgeous illustrations. In-Depth Lore: Every creature comes with a wealth of knowledge about its behavior, habitat, abilities, and physical traits so that every creature encounter is fully fleshed out. Easy-to-Create Custom Creatures: In case 250+ creatures isn't enough for you, the Creature Compendium include rules for creating your own beasts, or for adjusting the strength of an opponent to fit any scenario or group of adventurers.
Risks and challenges
Lunar Games is a small startup and our team members have published work independently. We are coming together to publish Endless Realms. This is our second Kickstarter and we are so grateful to all our backers for making this a reality. We learned a lot from our first Kickstarter and were able to fulfill everything to our backers on time. Although we can’t foresee every delay or hiccup along the way, we hope to do the same again this time around.
As fervent backers of various projects ourselves, we know the most important thing is keeping in touch, followed closely by transparency. YOU are the ones who made this possible, and you deserve to know how things are going. We will keep you updated.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
