About this project
The 4th Stretch Goal has been Unlocked! Sky ov Crimson Flame will now feature more amazing interior artwork, more player handouts, a custom 0-level character sheet and a 1st level mini-campaign called Blights of the Eastern Forest!
Sky ov Crimson Flame is a 0-level adventure/funnel designed for the Dungeon Crawl Classics RPG, but could also be used with your favorite Old School RPG of choice. In the adventure you will take control of 3 to 4 0-level peasants as they attempt to unravel the mysterious disappearance of their fellow villagers and (if they're lucky) stop a ceremony that'll bring darkness across the land!
This adventure was written by Thorin Thompson (that's me) and at a 12,500+ word count it is a brutal bloody good time!
The adventure features:
- Cover art by Stefan Poag
- Some fantastically gory interior artwork by Jordyn Boci and Nicolò Maioli
- 5 Handouts, 2 Maps, 2 Random Tables, & 1 New Spell!
Physically, this module will be saddle-stitched, ranging from approximately 28 to 32+ pages and measuring 8.5 x 11 inches. It will feature a full-color card stock cover and sharp black & white interiors on durable matte paper.
Transcribed from the tattered pages of Sir Hooticus' tome comes a new tale of sorcery, adventure and death!
It all began with the sudden disappearance of the raven-haired beauty Belesa. Distraught, the villagers of Reed searched vigorously, some even daring to venture into the blighted forest east of the village. In the end they found no trace of her whereabouts; as if the night had swallowed her whole.
In the following weeks others began to vanish! One by one, friends, love ones and finally the children screamed out in the dark of the night and were lost. The village elders suspect the kidnapped have been taken to an ancient and vile Keep that lay hidden within the Eastern Forest for it is they alone remember the old tales of the witch-lights that blazed and screamed across the night sky in times of yore!
Tonight, a thunderous boom ripples across the land as a Crimson Star ignites in the eastern sky just above the Horned Moon rising. Strange ululations cry out as fleeting shadows ride across the wind. Who will unravel the mystery and brave the bowels of that foul Keep where surely unspeakable horrors must await!
So Why Kickstarter?
I'd like to start my own self-publishing company called Owl Knight Publishing! This my first adventure and I've put a lot of time, effort and planning into making it top notch! Sure I could just slap a PDF online and be done with it, but I'd really like to see this adventure hit the road via conventions and the like. In order to do that I need to have an inventory, but in order to have an inventory I need a little boost. Together with your help we can both level up!

The Question of Coin:
Risks and challenges
Sky ov Crimson Flame is at this moment (stretch goals not included) 100% written. All artwork is either finished or already commissioned. The printers are ready to go as soon as I given them the files and it should take no more than one month to be printed and then another month of shipping on my end to get it in your hands. If, however, any stretch goals are reach there will be at least a 2-3 month wait as the new material is written/drawn/etc.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
