Funded! Kickstarter to create 6 5E adventures and an NPC handbook. Thank you backers!

Less than two weeks left! We are going to publish six 5E adventures and the Hirelings and Henchmen handbook. The adventures are part of a series based in the World of Myrr (MEER) 5E campaign setting. Volume One took the characters to 13th level. These adventures will be high level adventures, all the way to 20th level. However, they can be played as standalone adventures as well. The Hirelings and Henchmen handbook will be at least 100 pages long, filled with unique NPCs and tables to create NPCs. We also have a new world map showing all of Myrr and other rewards as well.

The adventures are based on sessions from our Sunday night ‘West of the Wood’ gaming group. We always write up our sessions afterwards so the process of creating the modules is already under way. There will be six adventures in three modules for 4-5 characters. Each module should be about 50-60 pages long. Here are summaries of the adventures:

A11 The City of Magic/A12 Citadel of Aramoor (Character Levels 15-16)

The players escape the city of Bladen on the vampires’ warship and head north. They make their way to the city of Nox, known as the city of Magic. Once there, they will continue to deal with the evil Alliance and visit the mysterious Citadel of Aramoor. Agents of the Alliance are everywhere and the party must be prepared for anything.

Monsters include: anti-paladins, evil bards, gargoyles, hobgoblins, hydras, vampires, vampire spawn, and wizards.

A13 Into the Tunnels/A14 The Thunder Halls (Character Levels 17-18)

To avoid the deadly tarrasque, the heroes decide on an alternate route to reach the giants’ enclave. A hidden trove of vampire-fighting weapons were hidden in the Thunder Halls during the Dark Times. However, the journey to the giants’ halls is still a dangerous one! An old school dungeon crawl makes up a large portion of this module.

Monsters include: cloakers, dragons, elementals, giants, golems, ogres, orcs, rocs, ropers, and xorn.

A15 The Hell Gate/A16 Into the Fire (Character Levels 19-20)

The true leaders of the Alliance are the devils. Our heroes must travel to the Hell Gate in the far north. The only way to close the gate is to travel into hell and close it from the other side! Once there, the party must find a way back home and deal with a city full of devils. Will the continent of Myrr be saved? Or will the Alliance succeed in bringing an army of devils through the gate?

Monsters include:devils (barbed devils, chain devils, horned devils, pit fiends, etc.), dragons, invisible stalkers, succubi, and vampires.

A game master can never have enough NPCs! This 100+ page book will contain about 180 NPCs. There will be two main sections; one for hirelings and one for henchmen. Detailed stat blocks for each character will be included. We’ll also have art throughout the book. All of these characters could also be used as pre-generated PCs. Finally, we’ll include several tables for you to create your own NPCs. (We’ll look at doing a poll to name it ‘Hirelings and Henchmen’ or ‘Henchmen and Hirelings’)
