Default Kickstarter!

This, on today's Daily Illuminator!

"On July 23, we will launch a Kickstarter for a big box of Fantasy Trip goodies. The Legacy Edition will contain, not the traditional three books of an old-school RPG, but two complete games and one fat book. To be specific: it will have Melee and Wizard, each as a boxed minigame with its own map and die-cut counters, and a 160-page In The Labyrinth that will be a reorganization of the material covered in the original In The Labyrinth, Advanced Melee, and Advanced Wizard. It will also have one skinny book the 24-page Tollenkar's Lair adventure, plus (as it originally should have been) the labyrinth map in full color. We're going to offer this for just $60.

And that's just the basic goal. We're going to offer stretch goals to enhance Melee and Wizard, to put the two Death Test books into the mix, to add die-cut cardstock megahexes that you can use to map your adventures, and more. (I'm working on a ref screen right now. It will be playtested soon on the forums, where we have an active TFT discussion going.)

Over the next weeks, I'll be posting articles about TFT and bits of new material as well. Come along for the ride!"

And they are trying to make it EU/Canada friendly!!!!!

I wonder if it wouldn't be easier just to assign my paycheck to SJG... ;)

Great news and doubly so for the EU friendly bit ! Thanks !

I never played TFT, never even seen it in shop or elsewhere (I only started playing RPG in 84) but it sound like something I want, for convention/demo if nothing else.

That's all Steve. He named the box.

Great news! It sounds like a very fun and meaty offering... cannot wait!

And frankly, I would have been willing to pay double+ the $60 :p

But, perhaps a good opportunity to buy gifts for others :)

Thanks to everyone involved--especially Steve!

That's a ridiculously good price. In 1981, the original 3 TFT books, plus the Microgames Melee, Wizard and 2 microquests would have cost $32 - $5 each for AW & AM; $6 for ITL; $3 for Melee; $4 for Wizard; $3 each for Death Test, Death Test 2 and Tollenkar's Lair.

That's $92.54 in inflation-adjusted 2018 dollars. If you delete the stretch goals these items would cost $26 in 1980 dollars or $75.19 in 2018 dollars.

So...we're paying 35% less and getting FAR superior components, including a color map that was not available in 1981. Holy <bleep>.

Thank you very much, Mr. Jackson.
