Limited Offer: Living Land Explorer
Want to make your lasting mark on the Living Land? You get EVERYTHING in the Living Land Survival Box Pledge Level, PLUS we’ll work with you to create an official Core Earth or Living Land Archetype! This includes custom Perks or Miracles, art for the character, and the character you help create becomes the “iconic” version of that Archetype.
These Archetypes become part of the game and are available as a bonus to all backers who receive the normal digital Archetypes. The archetype is the property of Ulisses and we reserve the right to refuse any names or other features of the character that we consider inappropriate (such as inflammatory or vividly "against theme").
Ultra Limited Offer: Living Land Destroyer
Add your Archetype just as Explorer above, and also bear witness to the destruction of city of your choice. The city must be within the boundaries of the Living Land, and there are a few exceptions we have plans for. Atlanta and New York are the main examples.
Plus you earn a seat for yourself or a designated proxy at our very special GenCon event on Thursday night. Last year's event changed the map of the Living Land, the fate of the Goldsuns, and had another consequence that won't be felt until later in the war. What will this year's game hold? Note that this offer doesn't include travel, lodging, or tickets to GenCon.
Best Value: The Living Land Survival Box
For the best Living Land experience and the most value for your pledge check out the Living Land Survival Box. It is the most convenient way to get all of the core items in this Kickstarter, and much more! Survival Box backers will be the first to get their hands on many great accessories and additional products.
Examples of items that start in the Survival Box include the God Box Soundtrack CD and a set of five new promotional Cosm cards. Stretch goals may unlock these items for separate purchase, but by that time other new items in the box will have only made the value even better!
The Living Land is a realm of primitive peril, savage sensuality, and dangerous dinosaurs. It's ruled by High Lord Baruk Kaah and his army of reptilian edeinos. The Living Land has come to Earth and taken over both coasts of the United States, the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico, and the mysterious "White Zone" in Canada.
Where the Living Land rules miraculous spiritual power is available, but technology rusts and fails. Ordinary humans, and even some heroes, regress and become ruled by their primal passions.
There are amazing opportunities scattered among the Living Land's perils. The Law of Wonders insures that lost treasures appear in the misty and unexplored jungles. These treasures might have disappeared from Earth long ago or they may be relics from cosms destroyed by the High Lords. Whatever their different origins, they are resurfacing here and now, for any adventurers bold enough to discover them!
Do you dare traverse the treacherous jungles, murky swamps, and crumbling ruins of this mysterious realm?
The Living Land source book is an expansion designed for both players and Game Masters. Inside you'll find:
- New Perks and Miracles for advancing characters. Includes options only available to Beta Clearance Storm Knights, as they learn more about their own abilities and the nature of reality.
- More gear designed for the harsh environment and primitive conditions of the Living Land, including trained dinosaurs for riding!
- An extensive status update for the default timeline. See the course of the first year of the Possibility Wars and the toll it's taken on North America. Includes a list of ongoing Delphi Council operations and who's who in the Living Land theater of the war.
- Facts and rumors about the edeinos. New options for edeinos player characters, and more information on the strongest clans and their goals. Get the statistics for the Saar himself, as Baruk Kaah enters the fray to take care of business personally!
- New threats. Thrakmoss and his undead hordes are detailed. Discover cryptids, dinosaurs, gospog, and other strange denizens of the Living Land. Over forty new foes in all, suitable for Storm Knights of various experience levels!
- Adventure generation tables help produce missions, adventures, lost worlds, and more!
The God Box is a massive adventure suitable for several months of gaming. Start off in besieged Washington D.C. and follow a trail of evil across (and under) the realm that threatens the goddess of life and sensation herself: Lanala! Don't miss the climactic Wedding of Baruk Kaah! The God Box also includes expanded material and foes for the Land Below, handy for any GM's continuing campaigns.
The Living Land GM Screen has three panels. On the inside, all the most needed charts from Torg Eternity in addition to the new charts specific to adventures in the Living Land. The outside features a single, gorgeous seamless image and the axioms and World Laws players need to remember.
The Living Land Archetypes come with the GM Screen, and offer new stock heroes to draw from to fill the ranks of your Storm Knights. Meet the Blood Witch, a Core Earth native who has embraced the increased spiritual power of the Living Land, the Cartel Soldier, the Edeinos Wanderer, and more!
We've grouped some of our previously unlocked goals by category so that you can keep track of them more easily, and so we can focus on what's coming up.
Any series of goals that is not yet finished has been left in the list below the summaries. As we finish each series, we'll remove those items from the list and summarize them as well.

We have shipping centers in Germany and the US, plus a distribution partner in Australia. This allows us to assure that we are US, EU, and Australia-friendly. We also have a partner in China (VFI Asia), which means many locations in Asia and the Pacific Rim are cheaper, though not all customs for those countries may be covered. Other locations will be more expensive based on how difficult it is to ship from those four centers.
Please Note - The Survival Box and Cargo Box are very heavy. The Cargo Box weighs in at 16 pounds (7.26 kg). We do our best to make packing and shipping these products economical, but we are limited by simple practicalities of size and weight.

Risks and challenges
We held off on launching this Kickstarter to ensure fulfillment on the Core Rules Kickstarter, so we are quite far along on the writing and development of almost all the products included here. You'll get the first set of PDFs immediately on the close of this Kickstarter. Your support helps us make the game and all the accessories even better. And because the main products are almost finished, we are able to explore some brand new ideas as well!
There are always challenges with large-scale, international fulfillment. Some delays may occur that are out of our hands simply because we do not control every aspect of printing, shipping, and customs. However, we will keep working until every customer has their rewards.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
