A monster fit for a supernatural slasher film, the goblin veteran who you can trust to betray his master, your old elven grandmother and her famous tembleque and a young apprentice wizard (and more) await you in the first volume of the Sinopa Omnibus. Excerpts from the working draft of the print file are displayed below (page border art is forthcoming).
In October of 2018 I began publishing a monthly release to subscribers of my Drip page (Drip is basically KickStarter's version of Patreon). This campaign collects the first six months of releases (and one bonus entry) into one book, the Sinopa Omnibus (Volume One). Each entry contains a character, companion, creature, item or monster; an illustration; a narrative / short story featuring the subject; treasure information; and more. Each entry is basically it's own article concerning that resource for your game. The book is going through final edits as we launch.
Each month's release featured full color, all original art. The bonus entry features an illustration from Whispers of Persephone! Art for these releases has been done in different styles, at the discretion of the artists who were commissioned, which makes each entry entirely unique.
" The lore and art material provided gives a life-like depth of every single entry we had up to this day." ~ Miguel, Drip page subscriber.
This book is 52 pages, formatted and printed in 8.5 by 11 inch. Stretch goals will unlock additional entries, complete with all new art.
This KickStarter campaign funds reward fulfillment and final production costs of this book. Reward tiers are designed to be affordable and fun.
This will be the first volume of the Omnibus. It will fulfill by end of June.

The book is done and formatted, but there is room for a few improvements.
Campaign funded at $3000 ~ Bonus content! Reaching this level of funding will permit me to commission an illustration of "La Torre de la Cascada de Sangre" by artist: Anthony Ojeda. A narrative describing the rescue of Dakath by his cousin Salvator, will be added!
Campaign funded at $5000 ~ Bonus content! An additional entry will go into the book with art from Rebecca Elisbet Coulthart.
Campaign funded at $8000 ~ Press run! This is a hugely important milestone as it allows for me to incorporate even more content into the book, unlocking new stretch goals. We'll be adding another entry to the book at this level (artist to be announced).
Campaign funded at $10,000 ~ Yes, even more content! We'll be adding another entry to the book at this level (artist to be announced).
Campaign funded at $12,000 ~ Yes, even more content! We'll be adding another entry to the book at this level (artist to be announced).
Campaign funded at $20,000 ~ By special request from one of the subscribers to my Drip page: Funding at this level unlocks the release of an adventure module. This adventure will be released a separate book. Working title on that project is "Return to Blood Falls Tower" and describes La Torre de la Cascada de Sangre. This adventure is being created as a deadly to difficult challenge. Reaching this level of funding will reward all tiers with PDF copy as well as print on demand codes (redeemable through drivethrurpg.com). This stretch goal will see fulfillment by December 2019.

Behind the scenes:
Publishing new content each month has been a great experience for me and I look forward to years of future content. At this time Drip is scheduled to be transitioned to a new platform model, with new features. When this happens, later this year, the folks at KickStarter/Drip have announced that they would help existing Drip creators with the transition and/or help them migrate to a new platform if they wished to. If the new platform is not to my liking, I will be migrating to Patreon.
I hope to grow the subscriber community on my Drip page and eventually begin releasing even more content with each monthly publication. Current subscribers to my Drip page received the digital (PDF) file already. You can find my Drip page HERE:
Risks and challenges
The book is complete with the original content and is undergoing final edits as we launch.
Art is formatted.
Writing for stretch goal content is outlined and will be complete by end of May.
Stretch goal art is being distributed between very talented artists who have always displayed the finest attention to deadlines. I expect no delay from art.
I have the utmost confidence that this project will fulfill on schedule but I also have considerable experience in resolving problems that are common to KickStarter campaign fulfillment. That said, the following are the most likely risks associated with this campaign:
1) Printing delays (signed copy backers) ~ printing problems can happen and when it does it slows down fulfillment of printed copies. Any such problems will be disclosed as they are encountered and projections updated for fulfillment. I have a primary printer, a secondary and yes, even a third option if needed. When we fund you can be assured we'll be shipping those printed books out to signature backers!
2) Delivery problems (signed copy backers) ~ Lost or stolen packages can severely impact deliver times. I will be announcing when packages are shipped so you can be aware of when these book went out. If after two weeks you haven't received your copy, please contact me directly.
3) Flaws with digital delivery. This is usually the result of typographical errors where an email address was incorrectly input. Best way to prevent this is to check your answers to the backer survey before submission. If something changes with your information, please contact me directly so I can update it on my end for fulfillment.
I've made every effort to make certain this campaign runs as smoothly as possible. We have a limited number of stretch goals set and unless we fund well beyond the current top stretch goal we'll sticking to that amount of content in order to adhere to our fulfillment deadline.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
