About this project

Welcome!

This is our fireside, come on down and let’s have a chat. My name is Rahul Kanojia, CEO, Creative Director and Lead Developer at Rogue Robot Studios. We are a small independent game development studio and publishing house, with big goals that all involve working hard to enrich our customer and fan’s experience with us and our line of products. Our aims are high and I can assure you that the small descriptor will not last long, at least not with your help and continuing support! Come join us in the adventure!

Books from the Rogue’s Gallery

The Rogue’s Gallery refers to all of us creative minds behind Rogue Robot Studios as well as our business partners and patrons. We have a total of three initial book projects planned for release as third party OGL-compatible supplementals for The Pathfinder Roleplaying Game System by Paizo Publishing and additional WoTC 5th Edition D&D OGL-compatible versions available with stretch goals. These three books will be part of our ongoing product lines: Rogue’s Field Guide and Rogue’s Playbook and Rogue's Field Guide: Flora and Fauna

Rogue’s Field Guides are a product line that puts the focus on world related, GM centric content such as world building guides, monsters, adventure paths and playable races for both GMs and players. The Rogue’s Playbook is aimed at maximizing the effectiveness of the player with all of our tips, tricks and player options, such as classes, feats and items, from the Rogue Robot itself!

Join us in the adventure!

We created Rogue Robot Studios with the intention of seeking out true inspiration behind what makes the digital entertainment industry so compelling. We wish to fully immerse ourselves within the process of utilizing human creativity to its fullest potential. As self-titled ‘rogues’ we wish to break away from flawed trends of the industry and focus on clearing the path to a better future for our community of patrons/fans, and the future of this industry. We ask of you to help us spread our message in whatever way you can (and maybe get some rewards through social goals), so that we may help you and the rest of our fellow adventurers break free and go rogue!

WE NEED YOUR HELP!

One dagger in the dark is worth a thousand swords at dawn! Any amount of help whether it be spreading the word about us, inviting your friends and family to join us in the adventure and/or continuing to support us by joining our Rogue Patrons Group and our Rogue’s Gallery on facebook, and following us on twitter @RogueRobotGames! Help us fund new artwork, stunning designs, effective gameplay content and outstanding prints for the most unique, fun, awesome and handy books for the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game! Let use Rogues guide you towards treasures never before seen at your game! 

Fireside Chats and the Rogue’s Gallery:

What’s better after a long day adventuring and exploring the boundaries of the world, than coming together around a warm campfire? You can join us for a thrilling discussion podcast about all things tabletop gaming. Fireside chats will also serve as developer diaries on our content, tips and tricks from the rogue robot a live version of our Tabletop RPG strategy blog. We’ll also host the Homebrew Hotline where members from our experienced design team will help you the listeners with all of your Tabletop RPG design needs. We aim to utilize our airtime and various media outlets to maximize the utility and longevity of both our products and the community of you our fans and fellow rogues, that we are able to foster around them. 


$ 3500 -  That is the magic number we need your help to achieve!

This is our minimum cost to get you both the Rogue’s Field Guide: Rare Races book and the Rogue’s Playbook: Freaky and Fun books with all of our base content at the highest quality possible. Rogue's Field Guide: Rare Races will feature 10 brand new special and extraordinary playable races as well as 10 iconic characters from those races! We're planning on at first selling each chapter as an individual supplemental and then a composite book!

Rogue’s Playbook: Freaky and Fun will feature 200+ pages of new strange and enjoyable classes, archetypes for those new classes as well as existing ones, new intriguing magical items and spells. The money will be used towards production costs, paying for the art and the formatting of the book as well as software licenses for production. It is for this reason we appreciate your backing!

Disclaimer:    

Designs are not yet finalized. We reserve the right and artistic licence to substitute aspects for one of at least equal value. (Ex: An archetype for a different class than the one listed in a stretch goal race for mechanical reasons.) Books can be chosen from any reached in stretch goals. You get the greatest number of non limited book PDFs for your reward tier. (Ex: Priest gets six books, but doesn’t add four for previous monk rank.) A campaign consists of at least five sessions and a mini-campaign consists of at least three.

Shipping 

 All of our products will be available on the following digital retailers for purchase and will also utilize their shipping services: www.rpgnow.com, www.drivethrurpg.com, www.d20pfsrd.com and www.tabletoplibrary.com. Also Backerkit will handle the shipping for our physical add-ons.

Risks and challenges

Timing in completion of higher stretch goals. The way we manage this is by setting a proper chain of production and understanding what still needs to be learned. We make tabletop gaming possible by learning how to manage everyone's skills and we are aiming for optimising production. In the case of a delay, we will communicate this with our backers as well further solutions and keep you updated on our plans. The only real end to the adventure is death, until then keep the campfire burning!
