Nordlond Sagas: Three new books for the DFRPG
 
At 10:30 central time on Sept 10, the latest Kickstarter for Gaming Ballistic launched: Nordlond Sagas for the Dungeon Fantasy RPG.

It hopes to fund three products, all set in the Noršlond setting and supporting the Dungeon Fantasy RPG with more full-color, 8x10 books.

The Dragons of Rosgarth
48 or 64 pages
This setting expansion and adventure scenario details the towns of Midgard and Jarngaršr, and provides a looming threat worthy of a party of seasoned delvers. Targeted at four to six delvers of 300 points or more. Written by Kyle Norton (Dungeons on Automatic).

Forest's End
64 or 80 pages
The King proclaimed that lands and titles were newly available for those bold enough to hold them. One thegn, more than bold enough to take up the King's challenge, built a fortified settlement near where the forest meets the sea: Skógarenda . . . Forest's End. The thegn is ready to claim his rightful status as lord and jarl. A great feast is planned. What could go wrong?

Forest's End features several threats and three actual dungeons to delve for the Dungeon Fantasy RPG! Written by Merlin Avery.

Noršlondr Fólk
16 pages
Sixteen playable racial templates to supplement those from Dungeon Fantasy Adventurers, including Noršlond-specific versions of elves and dwarves. Also dragon-blooded, children of humans and demons, and other hybrids, such as raven-folk and those who are brothers and sisters to bear and boar. Written by Kevin Smyth.

About 10 minutes to launch! As with all small-publisher efforts, the best thing you can do to help is (a) first back the campaign, and then (b) talk about it somewhere else. Share the link, say why you're excited to be a part of the campaign, a comment on facebook, anything. It's amazing how that sort of network effect can drive a campaign.

Let's see if we can break the old DFRPG record for Gaming Ballistic of 600 backers, and the all-time record for me of 610 from The Fantasy Trip.

[Edit: It's off to a strong start, with 10% funding in the first half-hour.]

And we're off with an epic 6k so far in less than 5 hours.

For what it's worth, The Citadel at Noršvörn, my prior best in terms of funding and backer count, took two days to get to $5600.

That doesn't mean anything yet - it's not just a strong start but a steady finish that matters. But . . . it's better than a WEAK start!

The team and I are thinking about possible extras and add-ons, especially PDFs, that we can deliver without jeopardizing any other bits of the project. We've got a few fun ones we're mulling. More later.

And it hit two-thirds just a bit ago!

We're at $6 from being 85% funded (and I know at least one person wants HoJ2 in print, so ...) as we hit Saturday morning. That's a strong showing, and it hopefully means we'll get those last $1250 to basic funding in the next two or three days.

If you missed them, here are some update links:

And we're off (and off to a good start, too!)

More copies? Yah, sure...you betcha

Just about 75% funding! And a new product for the future

Looking forward to the new books!

Now here's a dumb question:

In the Kickstarters for the earlier GB DFRPG books, lots of pre-release PDF editions were offered, and I have a collection of PDF files with names like Hall+of+Judgment+8x10+PDF+u20190602 and Citadel+at+Nordvorn+PDF+Pre-final+v22 and HoJ2e+Full+PDF+Test+Export+3. I'm not sure that I picked up the final versions. More embarrassingly, I don't rightly recall where the downloads came from – the GB site, W23, or what.

So, for me and anyone similarly forgetful and confused: Where does an owner of GB PDF products go to download or re-download the latest versions?

Thanks!

The short version is my website. I’ll see what the latest version numbers are and post them.

(Most of those came from Backerkit)

$100 to go! A SINGLE "oh, I missed the other Kickstarters, so let's make up for that" pledge for six books (four adventures, two rules supplements) on the Nordlond Sagas kickstarter would be $135, and seal this deal as funded in a week. Then it's stretch goals.

Who wants to be THAT PERSON?

The Nordlond Sagas campaign funded at about 1:30pm on Tuesday Sept 17.

Now for stretch goals.
