Fortune & Doom Tokens & Animated 2d20 Tutorial!
Hi guys lots happening this week with some REALLY big news tomorrow and then Thursday. We've got an incredible video put together by backer Waldgeist showing you how to play 2d20 illustrated with cool graphics from the Age of Conan game!
But first, let's look at those fabled FORTUNE & DOOM Tokens for the Conan RPG Kickstarter!
These are 25mm x 30mm and cut from a soft dark grey marble to smooth pebble shapes, then printed with the Phoenix (FORTUNE) or Stygian Snake (DOOM) symbols. I wanted you to see how they're going to look as we develop them - we are chatting to the factory about printing in different colours and will show progress as we go, but I can tell you they are going to be really amazing. These feel weighty and smooth and will sit nicely with your Stygian Doom Tray! Please add them on if you like how they look!
The Tokens come in sets of 18 for £20 each as Add Ons. Typically you need 3 Fortune tokens per player but maybe as much as 5. So a set of 18 should be fine for a group of 4 players with spares for anyone with more and at a stretch 5 players.
A set of 18 Doom Tokens should be a good starter for any GM, but they can build up so a second set would never go amiss.
You can simply increase your pledge amount to add the tokens. Pick the £40 set of both Fortune & Doom tokens (36 total tokens), or the individual sets of 18 tokens for £20 each. Remember Conan RPG Starter Sets, Conqueror's Collections, Secrets of Yishma and Treasure of Tranicos Pledges get these for free!
Now for that video - thanks so much to Johannes for putting in a lot of effort to create this - it's great seeing what people can do with 2d20 when inspired by Conan!
The dev team are preparing a particularly nasty cosmic horror to spice up your adventures, Thog! I hope we'll have that for you in the next few hours!
David Thomas has updated his follow up adventure to the Thunder River scenario in the Quickstart with some advice from our developer Benn. You can get it here. Please remember it's unedited.
Finally i'm updating the Quickstart on DriveThruRPG with a version that is bookmarked thanks to backer Doug Bailey, and a separate rules only version for those who don't want their players to see the adventure. Expect a mail update when the files are loaded. You'll be able to turn off layers for a printer friendly version of it too.
