Frog God Goes Kickstarter - Rappan Athuk for S&W (and Pathfinder too)



Kickstarter is THE thing these days for RPG project funding & support.  If you have a good product that might be difficult to fund at the quality level you want, Kickstarter give you the tools to do it.

I got Frog God's email at 5:28 PM this afternoon, and when I clicked the link it was already supported at over $6k.  It is now 8:30 PM as I write this, and it's over $17K  18k  With 59 days to go.

"Holy shit!" does not come close to telling the story here.

Kickstarter and Indigogo have breathed new life into our hobby.  ACKS, LotFP Adventures, Dwimmermount, Barrowmaze, Myth & Magic, C&C Classic Monsters, OGRE - the list does not stop.

It is, as they say, a beautiful time to be a part of this. :)

Oh, and it can be expensive too.  Ouch!

  1. Wow. It is over $22k now. I will be surprised if they are not funded in the first day.

  3. Funded now. Very curious about the breakdown between S&W and Pathfinder orders.

  4. There will be at least 1 S&W order (and about a zillion Pathfinder).

    It looks like they still have copies of Tome of Horrors Complete in S&W versions while the Pathfinder ones sold out the first day. I really want to see what Rappan Athuk is going to look like as a high level S&W adventure.

    If you can, go for the $250 pledge because the bonus modules start kicking in. One for the pledge, then another if they hit $40K and another at $60K. I don't think those levels are going to be problems. They need to look at the OGRE kickstarter and start figuring out more bonuses for mor bucks.
