$800k - The Hills are Alive... With the Sound of Michael Ghelfi's Ambiences
5 months ago – Thu, Jun 10, 2021 at 03:50:40 AM

We made it! Baby godzilla (demigodzilla?) is ready to dance.

Michael Ghelfi will be composing 10 new ambiences - one for each hunt - to be delivered digitally and hosted online for you Rhythm Bot pleasure! Check out Michael's patreon if you want tracks right now!


A New Clue

Many of you caught onto our snakey clues in the last stretch goal update, but no-one has yet to guess the name of the actual adventure.  So, while many of the guesses were far from dire, you'll have to play more boy.

Good luck!


Next Stretch Goal - $900k: 5 More Familiars

We're all so excited for this one - especially Jess! 5 more goodboys to summon as a familiar, or train up as your monster tamer's companion. As always, the more you can spread word of this campaign, the more folks we reach, and the most stretch goals we unlock. If there's a facebook group you frequent, drop a link!


Thanks,


Max (and Mo and Jess)

$700k - Looks Like Genetically Modified Meat's Back on the Menu, Boys! $1m goal revealed!
5 months ago – Sun, Jun 06, 2021 at 11:20:41 PM

We did it! Genetically modified baked beans coming your way. Four new subclasses in the book and PDF :) Careful you don't add too much spice and end up like this guy:

 New Stretch Goal - $1m: Bonus Adventure

Clues. Holy hand grenade, we're a hare's breadth away. Ni-one could have believed we'd even have to reveal this goal! I'm going to hide behind a shrubbery. One that looks nice. Maybe two shrubberies, with one slightly higher so you get the two-level effect with a little path running down the middle.


Okay that's all the clues you're getting about what it could be!  Whoever can correctly guess the name of this adventure will get a high five from me, Max.

If we hit this goal, there'll be another monster hunt in the book. The deadliest yet.


 Next Stretch Goal - $800k: Ambience Soundtrack

10 bespoke tracks to set the mood for each monster hunt. I guess we might have to make that 11 if we hit the $1m goal! Help us make the best product possible by sending a friend a link to our campaign, or share it on your favourite forum/group. 


Alright, that's all from us for now!


Thanks,

Max (and Mo and Jess!)


P.s. Did someone say.... College of Cuisine?

$650k done - soundscapes activated! New goal: More familiars!
5 months ago – Sun, Jun 06, 2021 at 01:05:48 AM

Monster Soundscapes will be available to everyone who gets a book or PDF :)

Arfghjklklklllbrll - The Sound of being forced to eat a tree. Or broccoli.

 New Stretch Goal - $900k: 5 More Familiars

If we get to $900k we'll expand the roster of trainable familiars. These can be summoned in their lowest form with the find familiar spell, but have unique traits they can gain when trained by a Monster Tamer. Check out this piece Jess did!


Couatling - Jess Jackdaw

 Next Stretch Goal - $700k: 4 New Subclasses

Share share share to help us get there! A post on facebook, instagram, and especially reddit can help us reach new audiences and hit more stretch goals. Help wandering critters find us and begin carving up monsters, too!


Thanks,

$500k goal smashed! New Goal: 4 New Subclasses!
5 months ago – Fri, Jun 04, 2021 at 09:52:54 PM

They're alive! THEY'RE ALI- no wait they're just animated.  Ten animated familiar cards will now be included in the Deluxe Box tier! If you were thinking of bumping your pledge, these cards have some serious cute factor! Also available as addons :)

See, 'zilla can fly! Does this mean Dragonborn can fly using their breath weapon too?

Digital PDF Update

The digital version of the Crafting Catalogue will be included with any tier that includes the PDF (so ... all of them), and for any $1 tier backer who buys the PDF. You can give this to your players when they ask about crafting and harvesting :)


New Stretch Goal - $700k: 4 More Subclasses

At $700k you'll be able to cook the best damn genetically modified steak and ale pie with the help of the School of Biomancy wizard, and the College of Cuisine bard! If we hit this stretch goal  there will be 4 more subclasses added to the book, for a total of 8 subclasses (and the monster tamer class).

Humperdink & Dr. Doolots, two very different biomancers.

Next Stretch Goal - $600k: 5 More Races

Want to play a raccoon, chicken, or cyclopian? Then we just need to hit this next stretch. If you share this campaign on your favourite social media platform we can get more content for everyone :)
