Kickstarter: The Folio: Storyteller's Arcana - 1E & 5E gaming supplement

Ive been a supporter practically since the first release in the series. The production values are high and the gaming value has been very good, whether you play OSR or 5e your covered. The Folio: Storyteller's Arcana is something a bit different. Instead of an adventure and setting material, tis book harken's back to 1e's Unearthed Arcana.
So you are probably asking, what exactly is The Storyteller's Arcana?  Well, when I was 14 I managed to get my hands on a newly printed copy of TSR's Unearthed Arcana and AD&D was forever changed for me.  That book introduced me to so many great wrinkles in the system, and over the past thirty-five years I've tried to translate my own gaming knowledge into a series of notes and rules that I think can resonate with all gamers, be they OSR die-hards or newly minted 5E campaigners.  By compiling and expanding on everything I've addressed during my time around a table, it is my hope that this new 'Arcana' will hold a special place on the shelves of gamers just as those old Orange Spine hardcovers do. 
We do have the table of contents pages to refer to, so you can make a choice if the content is for you:

Currently the book comes in around 128 pages, but that might grow with the funding. As of this morning the funding goal of The Folio: Storyteller's Arcana has been met with 14 days left for funding. Art of the Genre is pretty much always on time if not early in shipping their projects. And yes, that is Larry Elmore art on the cover...

  1. That's an awful layout, it reminds me of the 00's. It's a book, the important thing in it is the *text*. Make it easy to read! The illustrations and the map look really great, dedicate an entire page on each, don't try to fit everything in one page. This way the text becomes unreadable and the illustrations don't stand out!
    Content is king. Treat it accordingly :)
