Coming up Soon

It's that time again... work is officially underway on a new Kickstarter event. The official launch date is Tuesday October 02 2018. Some of you hate these reminders. Understandable. So do I. But then, without them and without crowdfunding, there wouldn't be a new Gazetteer. So, sorry for the advance nagging and the inevitable follow ups.

What's this new project?

Remember the Voyage of the Princess Ark episodes from Dragon Magazine? "On Wings of Darkness" blends a new skyship adventure in a 132 pg. geographic Gazetteer packed with info about a realm of wizards and demons.

Going through the table of contents, the following chapters follow the introductory story:

  • History of Caldwen (with a huge timeline of events)
  • Lay of the Land (geography, local culture, economy)
  • Intrigues of the Magi (politics and the military)
  • Behind the curtains (brotherhoods and secret sects)
  • A Cast of Many (major NPCs)
  • Master & Servant (everything about demons)
  • Beasties in the Dark (monsters of Caldwen)
  • At the Heart of Magic (about schools of magic)
  • Secrets of the Cabals (guilds of wizards, specialty magic)
  • Blood of the World Soul (about an order of mage-knights)
  • Sky City of Arcanial (a flying city & encounter ideas)

This comes with lots of maps including Thorfinn Tait's magnificent geographic cartography. The manuscript is complete. Crowdfunding is essentially for the purpose of acquiring decent art. On Wings of Darkness is system neutral and should work with most roleplaying games. A link should become available to view the Kickstarter page prior to its launch, later in September.

All hands on deck!
