Stretch Goal #1: The Portal
Hello intrepid Dungeon World Adventurers! Thanks to you Dungeon World is going to print, but there is still deeper to delve. In fact, there's an entire dungeon to explore and your support will reveal it.
Right now we find ourselves in the first room. There's a mysterious portal here, a weak point between the planes where… something can spill through.
If we reach $25,000 we'll be able to tame the portal and use it to bring across Dark Heart of the Dreamer, a Dungeon World planar adventure by Jonathan Walton. The adventure will be a free PDF to all backers if we meet our goal, delivered at the same time as the finished PDF. Here's some more about the adventure in Jonathan's own words:
"Dark Heart of the Dreamer" is a sandbox-style adventure and setting toolkit torn from the pages of the Planarch Codex, the lost gazetteer of the planes. The monstrous city of Dis is gradually consuming the entire cosmos and now hosts refugees from dozens of destroyed worlds. Can a motley posse of destitute freelancers brave the Ocean of Fire and seize the enormous living treasure their slumbers have revealed? And what will their efforts mean for Dis, its inhabitants, and the city's newest victims? "Dark Heart" points a finger in the direction of epic dangers and then hands you the reins.
Writing and layout by Jonathan Walton with a cover image by the great Jenn Rodgers. Special thanks to Hans Chung-Otterson and Simon Carryer.
We've been blown away by all the support so far. We can't wait to see what the future brings.
