Final 48 hours for Survivalist’s Guide to Spelunking!
you *probably* already heard about it, but here goes:
Stephen Yeardley (of Rise of the Drow, Snow White, etc.) and yours truly were offered the chance to write a companion tome/sequel to one of my favorite gaming books of all time, namely to the Dungeoneer’s Survival Guide.
And here’s the thing: With the contributions of Douglas Niles, the original author of the DSG.
This book is the Survivalist’s Guide to Spelunking, bringing frickin’ SURVIVAL to your game.
Suffice to say, I was super-intimidated by the prospect, but the work of years is coming to a conclusion, with the Survivalist’s Guide to Spelunking‘s successful kickstarter approaching $100K. And that considering that the highest back-level asks for a paltry $39.
If you wanted to have momentum matter in your combats, if you wanted a book that provides a ton of modular engines specifically designed to allow you to create SURVIVAL campaigns, explorations through desolations where no humanoid has trod before? Then this book is for you.
The SGS was written for D&D 5e, but can be adapted pretty smoothly to most common roleplaying game systems.
(And no, this is not marketingspeak: I very much designed the book to be as timeless and as easy to adapt as possible!)
So yeah, I’d like to direct you to the kickstarter here: $39 for a 200+ page premium hardcover with a ton of artwork, plus several supplemental booklets have been unlocked. You’ll be hard-pressed to find a better deal, and I hope you’ll check it out.
Why? because, know what I’m most excited about? I’m excited to see what GMs out there make with the content. There are so many things you can do with the systems, from Final Fantasy style multi-target bosses to Banner Saga-ish campaigns of travel and exodus, the systems in the book can carry a ton of different adventure-styles.
You have still about 48 hours to back this beast. Suffice to say it, I do believe that this book is awesome. I hope you’ll agree.
The deal you’re getting here? It’s honestly an excellent one.
Thank you for your consideration.
