Old Gods of Appalachia Soars over One Million

The campaign for the Old Gods of Appalachia Roleplaying Game has blown away all our previous Kickstarter records, hitting one million dollars last week and continuing to soar, even now, well into the traditionally slower “doldrums” period of the campaign. This is a game of eldritch horror set in the isolated hollers and mining towns of early-twentieth-century Appalachia. The ancient evil of the Inner Dark stirs, awakened by (and sometimes aligned with) encroaching industrialization, but courage, community, and tradition (and the sometimes-beneficial but always-dangerous denizens of the Green) are your allies in the battle against this dark tide.

It’s an amazing game, and the Kickstarter more than does it justice with some amazing exclusive offerings. Check out the striking Deluxe Edition with its reversible dust jacket, or the unique Campaign Journal, with its soft, bible-like cover and ribbon bookmark. There’s a set of astonishingly beautiful super-premium dice, a custom XP Deck, a tin to store it all in (just like Mamaw’s sewing kit!)—and more.

We’re closing in on another stretch goal today. We’re excited about this one because—well, stretch goal—but also because when we hit it we’re going to announce the next two goals, and they’re pretty special!

The Old Gods of Appalachia Roleplaying Game is a Cypher System game, so it’s completely compatible with all your other Cypher System products!

A City Built on Adventure

Ptolus is truly the City of Adventure. Ptolus: City of Adventure brings the PDFs Doctrine of GhulThe Runeblood Blessing, and Return of the Ebon Hand together into a 96-page book that takes you into the city’s streets, the halls of power, and the massive and labyrinthine dungeons belowground. These meaty adventures are suitable for 5e parties of 5th or 6th level, or Cypher System characters of second or third tier, and can be easily adjusted upward or downward to fit into your campaign!

The philosopy of Kintsugi says that an artisan’s attention can transform a destroyed object into something with greater value than ever before. We love the idea and this elegant little game, Broken and Beautiful, currently on Kickstarter.
