Beneath Kra'adumek

Posted by Venger Satanis (Creator)

Since the KS funding is an uphill battle at the moment (Wisconsin is right in the middle of that polar vortex you might have read about), schools shut down and I'm in full-on Dad mode, I'm doing something unexpected...

Glynn suggested releasing Beneath Kra'adumek for all (that means all the backers and non-backers, too) in hopes of gaining some ground.  I think that could just be the purple ticket we need.  If Cha'alt doesn't fund, I don't think my wife is going to let me take another pass at it.

Without further ado, here are the files...

The whole stat-block debate hasn't been finalized, but we needed to get a version down on the document in order to make it happen at all.  So, it's version #3.  Give it some time and... assuming we somehow reach our 10k goal, let me know in a couple weeks how you feel about it.  



p.s. It should go without saying that these last few days are crucial regarding KS funding.  So, anything you can do to raise awareness and get people excited about Cha'alt would be much appreciated.  Thank you!  I very much appreciate all the support I've already received.  You guys are TEH AWESOME!!!

      Awesomeness works in mysterious ways, hoss. The Duke of Dork hath spoken! Also, thanks. Glad you like it. I'll try to work in a few improvement tweaks over the weekend, based on backer feedback. ;)

      DORK!!! You should have released this Day 1 on the First Page! It's awesome! I am so glad its there now. It's EXACTLY what prospective backers want to see. And its very cool stuff. I would absolutely hack this into Dead God Excavation!! In fact, DGE is PERFECTOMUNDO as the gateway for PCs to wander into Cha'alt. But your still a dork dork dork dork!!!

      Yes, all the maps will have a player-facing version! Thanks, guys. I'm still expecting this to go gang-busters in the last 36 hours. And I've got lots of work to do!

      And I expect VTT/player friendly maps in the PDFs for that. ;-)

      I'm afraid I can't do that, Marc. It's now or never, do or die, all-in or fold!

      @Thilo: Glad you're pleased. I agree!

      Key-less maps! Praise be to the elder ones!! :D You made me a very happy backer! If the complex has secret doors, please make sure that there are walls there in the player-friendly maps.

      And took a gander at the content you shared...oh BOY! It looks frickin' amazing!!! This.Needs.To.Happen!

      Venger, you mustn't let this not fund. That looks not good in the future. You must cancel the KS before you get to that point, that looks a lot better on the record. Also just scraping over the line sounds like you will end up in trouble both financially and with Mrs Venger.

      Better to regroup and retry later in the year, after you have some sample material to share and have done the charm offensive and spent
      a couple of months building awareness. The bottom line is this was not the best choice of time to spirng something no one had any idea was coming. Most people are strapped for cash at this time of year.
