About

I have been developing and running games in Rhallen, my primary campaign world, for over three decades. I decided it was time to share this world with the rest of the gaming community. To do this I needed to develop the Open20 Gaming System from the System Reference Document and Modern System Reference Document, both published by Wizards of the Coast, Inc.

The one challenge I have had in sharing this world is the artwork. I can paint a picture with words, but there is no substitution for illustrations to really bring a world to life.

The purpose of this Kickstarter is to raise the funds so that I can have my first two books professionally illustrated and then share them with you. I hope that you enjoy my world as much as I have enjoyed creating it.

I have my first book completed and in final editing. This is a campaign starter that describes one town and the surrounding region in detail.  It includes a sample party, and two starting adventure scenarios.

My second book is the main rulebook. It includes all of the rules and character options for any sort of campaign. It is intended as a comprehensive rulebook for the Open20 Gaming System. Campaign-specific manuals will, in addition to describing the world itself, provide subsets of the feats, talents, and skills available for those scenarios along with racial traits, religion, financial systems, and equipment lists.

The World of Rhallen is a fully-detailed campaign world, and I look forward to sharing it with you.

Risks and challenges

My greatest obstacle will be contracting with an artist who has the interest and time to create the illustrations. I have a handful of professional artists in mind who have styles and interests similar to what I am looking for.
