About

A 5th-10th level adventure for the world's greatest roleplaying game! 

Following the events that took place in "Whispers of Starfall", this adventure can also be used as a filler adventure for any campaign.

Rado, the Gnome wizard, has vanished, leaving the crossroads town of Hyran to grieve their losses. The Elenhodel has given a clue to his possible misguided actions but it is up to you to determine how best to proceed. Expanding on the custom world of Ambaran, players will travel across the new world, over a blistering desert, an angry sea or a treacherous mountain. Filled with options, characters are encouraged to go where they wish and stop the evil that is Rado from destroying Ambaran as they know it.

There will also be 2 new races, the Lydran and the Xrystis! Both of these races are not only NPC's to interact with, but also able to be played as characters if you choose! The images are still being worked on but we will, which will be included right here once the art has been completed. If we hit a few stretch goals, we will even be able to offer a miniature of both of these races. We have a rough draft of the Lydran race while the miniature prototype is still being processed.

There will be two new playable races in Secrets of Starfall: the Lydrans, and the Xrystis.  

The Lydrans are a race of humanoid cats, patterned after the various types of great cats from lions to panthers, and from tigers to snow leopards. The Lydrans hail from the savannahs and jungles of Virkanor, far to the south of Lilione and the town of Hyran. All Lydrans have retractable claws that can be used in combat should they find themselves weaponless. There are five subraces for the Lydrans: War Brave, Pathstrider, Vigilant, Seer and Ascendant.  

The Xrystis (pronounced zrr-iss-tee) or as they are more commonly known, Crystalborn are born from the depths of Ambaran where magic and jewels are both plenty and near. Covered in gemstones of various kinds, the Xrystis hail from Xyrin on the far continent of Otane, across the sea from Lilione and Hyran. All Xrystis can absorb the element associated with their subrace, releasing it later in an attack against the one that attacked them in that manner. This is known as a Gem Burst. There are twelve subspecies for the Xrystis: Amethyst, Chalcedony, Diamond, Emerald, Lapis Lazuli, Malachite, Moonstone, Mystic Quartz, Obsidian, Onyx, Ruby and Sapphire.

There are many different options for how you want to pick and choose what you want from our options. We have decided to go with a total of 3 options and allow you to add what you want to receive into your pledge as we unlock stretch goals. Each pledge level is welcome to add any option we are offering to give you the items you want! 

We are choosing to collect shipping costs after the campaign has ended so we are not showing inflated campaign funds. You will be sent an invoice for shipping costs as well as an image of the fee breakdown after the campaign ends and after surveys have been collected.

Our three options are:

  • Digital (PDF of the adventures and the Map of Ambaran)
  • Physical (any physical products including adventure modules, miniatures, physical maps etc.)
  • Ultimate (Everything! You are wanting everything we are offering)

We are also teaming up with Amusing Designs for some extra special swag. We will be offering dice bags, messenger bags and tech bags with our logo, and the Starfall series adventure title on the larger bags. We will post pictures here when we get the basic images.

We have a deal in the works for custom Rado villain miniatures to be 3D printed. If we are successful in being funded, our capability to create the custom version of Rado (instead of using precreated miniatures we have found at conventions and FLGS's) becomes a reality and you as backers benefit from it!

 Whispers of Starfall is already available and if you choose a level that offers a digital copy of our first adventure, you won't have to wait to dive in to the campaign! Once pledges are collected, we will contact you about receiving your digital copy of the first adventure. You will receive a complimentary copy of Whispers of Starfall via drivethrurpg.com and you will be able to download it right away!

We are excited to offer miniatures to upgrade your campaign of the Starfall series! We have teamed up with @BrunettewithaBrush from Twitch so you can choose to have your Rado villain miniature hand painted. You can choose one of the following options when you select your miniature:

-Unpainted, primed, trimmed and ready to paint miniature

-Painted miniature by the talented @Brunettewithabrush from Twitch LIVE on her channel prior to rewards being shipped out

High quality, tear resistant, 2'x3' map of our custom world of Ambaran! As the adventurers will be traveling across this vast world, what better way to give details of the lands than to show it to them? Printed on tear resistant paper, this map is perfect for taking to groups homes, your FLGS, or conventions!

We haven't completely finished the map details on the image, but the printing and shipping costs have been finalized. We will continue to update this image as we finish it.

Once we have the vector file off to Amusing Designs, this image will change to more accurately show what it will look like. This is not her work, just a rough image of what the initial starting point will look like. The technical bag image is coming soon!

Risks and challenges

With the amount of time it takes to 3D print our miniatures, we decided to push back the delivery time to April 2019 so there is plenty of time to get them done. We are still working on getting faster turnaround on the printing and we also working on a back up plan of purchasing our own 3D printer so the cost remains low and saves all of you money!

We have worked with our book printer before and know the turnaround time for physical copies to be printed and delivered to our doors before sending them out. To reduce the "in-between" time, we have opted for sending "complimentary copies" for physical books going outside the US. By doing this, we wouldn't need to ask for shipping costs unless the printer cannot ship to that country. If this were to be the case, we would order the printed book and ask for shipping costs once we determine the total cost from the International shipping service.

International backers will be given "complimentary copies" for both physical and digital copies and shipping costs will NOT be collected by us for International backers of Digital and Physical book ONLY levels. Please be sure to verify your country is able to be delivered to through Drivethrurpg.com prior to backing.

International backers that wish to receive maps or miniatures WILL be charged shipping costs after the campaign closes prior to being sent out. If you are receiving either of these options, you are also able to have your physical copy shipped as well.

We are exploring the option of working with Backerkit so we are able to continue shipping anywhere we need to and allow all of you to add any of the addons even after the campaign has ended.
