Kickstarter - The Midderlands - An OSR Mini-Setting & Bestiary


About time I got to looking at Kickstarters again, right?

This time we are looking at The Midderlands - An OSR Mini-Setting & Bestiary.

Wait! Do you see that? "An OSR Mini-Setting & Bestiary" - I think I'm in love ;)

Oh, and its by Monkeyblood Design, which is a seal of quality in the OSR.
The Midderlands is an old-school game setting with bestiary for use with old-school role-playing games. It is based on Swords & Wizardry Complete, but could easily be used with other old-school systems and even non-OSR systems such as D&D or Pathfinder
It is a green-hued, dark-fantasy, late-middle ages, early-renaissance view through grime-smeared spectacles. The setting itself is based on an area in the middle of England near where I live called The Midlands. Many of the locations are loosely based on reality, but others are pure fantasy from an addled mind. 
The setting part of the book contains something I call "game-juice". Not heavy of history and monotonous detail, but enough to get the game-juices flowing and let the game master twist and tweak as they need to in order to fit their campaign. 
There is also humour and occasional swear words.
Even some Swords & Wizardry Complete loving.

Shit, I'm in. PDF is $13, Print + PDF is $39. I'm going in for $39.
