The heart of 5th Edition: core rules for high fantasy games, including a Monster Vault and a Player's Guide to power your campaign!
I guess Kobold Press heard some of the complaints about leaving "the Blag Flag" behind because the current Kickstarter is fully titled Tales of the Valiant RPG: Launching Black Flag Roleplaying.
Yep, Tales of the Valiant (not a title I personally would have chosen for an RPG that didn't directly involve Print Valiant, but I digress) is currently kicking ass and chewing gum at the same time - in less than a half a day it has raised OVER $435k in funding, with 30 days to go.
What is Tales of the Valiant RPG: Launching Black Flag Roleplaying? It is Kobold Press' version of D&D 5e and the company's way of ensuring they have a system to support far into the future. I expect many of the current/recent producers of third-party content for 5e will shift to support Tales of the Valiant directly.
Tales of the Valiant (ToV) keeps all the best of 5E D&D and adds a Kobold Press spin to the well-loved game. It combines the Creative Commons foundation of 5th Edition with new elements to create a powerful Kobold-style 5E with teeth.
New 5E Options. Of course, ToV includes the fighter, wizard, and rogue, and dwarves and elves. Much more than that, it provides a wealth of new options and expanded gameplay. Explore the new Mechanist class and try out the kobold, outsider, and beastkin character lineages. Tales of the Valiant provides hundreds of new options for talents, spells, and monsters.
Early Access to Private Playtests. Backers get two exclusive playtest packets containing new classes and new creatures not available to the public until later.
Create Your Own World and Share Your Adventures. Tales of the Valiant is built on the Creative Commons and Open Roleplaying Content licenses, so the core rules are available for everyone to expand on as part of the 5E global community. Keep your investment in 5th Edition going strong!
Retain Compatibility with 5E Tradition. While ToV brings new options, its roots are familiar. Play any 5E adventure with creatures and spells from Tales of the Valiant—and keep the best of both worlds at your table!
