About

The Book of All’Terra is a digital campaign setting for 5th Edition that introduces huge golems players can operate like mechs, doing battle with kaiju-like titans.

This is an ancient place, full of history, magic, and mystery. Ruins of an age forgotten lay strewn throughout the land. Though little is known of All’Terra’s past, the dormant structures cause little harm to the life around them. Invention, ambition, and a thirst for knowledge drive the peoples of All’Terra toward an age of unrivaled growth and connectivity.

But as every light must have a shadow, so too does the past become the present. Out from All’Terra's forgotten age comes a long-forgotten enemy. Monstrous Titans have begun appearing throughout the land, leaving chaos and destruction in their wake.

 All hope is not lost, however. An ancient weapon was created to fight back the titans and defend All’Terra. Golems, massive in size and forged in a time out of memory, hold the key to stemming this tide of annihilation.

Take hold of your golem, befriend the spirit within, and wield its power against the titans of All’Terra.

 Hi, I’m Josh, and the Book of All’Terra is something I’ve been dreaming about and working on over the past year. In November 2018, we launched The Titans of All’Terra: A 5E Actual Play Podcast for Gamers of All Ages.

Inspired by monster movies, Saturday morning cartoons, and mecha anime, I set out with my closest friends and family to tell a classic fantasy story that paid tribute to some of those wonderful pieces of media from my past. We concluded our first season in June and have been blown away by the love and support we’ve received from the actual play community.

Now, I want to take this world and share it with all of you. With the help of this Kickstarter I will be able to create more golems, a slew of monstrous titans, original races of elves, gnomes, dwarves, and orcs, and pair it all with beautiful art in two well-designed books.\ 

This campaign setting will dive deep into the lands and people of All’Terra, from the frozen ice lands of the north to the desert tundra in the far south. 

In Dal’Thoradyn you will find Az’Twin, the House of Stars, where elven peoples practice astral magic. You may literally be blown away by the wild and audacious inventions on the Isle of gnomes. Uncover your fortune in the mines of Diadem Reach, the Kingdom of Gold. Explore ancient ruins with untold power, holding secrets from an age long forgotten. Pay close attention, and you’ll find mentions of the Keepers, an ancient race who ruled over the forebears of All’Terra.

This book will also give you everything you need to become the host of an incredibly powerful golem. Once you’ve gained the trust of the ancient spirit within, you may even gain access to a second form and more. Blast monsters away with point accuracy with the Hawk Golem in Sniper Form. Protect the city and your allies with the Goat Golem in Defender Form. Cut your opponents down to size with the blade of the Wolf Golem’s Warrior Form.

Last, but certainly not least, are the Titans of All’Terra. Discover the dark secret behind these unnatural monsters. You will be able to peruse over 20 unique and terrifying titans of varying difficulty. Be warned, however: even a “small” titan can bring a city to its knees.

This adventure book will provide 2-4 unique one-shots located in All’Terra. You will take a much closer look at some of the cities, kingdoms, and strongholds, and meet some whimsical and intriguing NPCs. Explore ancient ruins and forgotten forests as you solve puzzles, find clues, and encounter dangerous foes. Connect with Golems and their idiosyncratic spirits designed specifically for these stories. Then, wield their power to meet new titans in gargantuan combat. This book will also contain dungeons separate from the adventures which you can use in any campaign.

Risks and challenges

This is our first kickstarter as a company and we are bound to encounter unexpected issues. However, we do have two years of experience delivering digital and physical rewards through websites like Patreon. For this project we decided to deliver our rewards digitally. Choosing to avoid physical rewards will go a long way toward making sure we can deliver within our timeframe. Our team is incredibly dedicated to creating the best product we can. Whatever happens, we will remain as open and transparent as possible, letting our supporters know where we are at and how the project is progressing.
