So I was having a bit of a tidy up on the Crypts and Things Kickstarter, it suddenly stuck me that my stretch goals where not big chunks of work (as I’ve done a fair bit on them any way) and they’d be better off folded into the Basic Goal to give those people who want the Remastered version to have more expanded/new content.
So all this will now be included in the Basic Goal (as well as the streamlined/new rules).
Expanded Life paths. C&T currently has a small twenty entry table that you roll on three times to give your character’s previous experience. Both fans of the current game and play testers of the current Beta say this is not enough, so I’m expanding this idea.
More Spells & Magic Items. I’ll be to revisit the Spell lists and Magic Items chapters and add some more twisted and dark magic into the mix.
The Great Others and their Cultists. I hinted at the presence of these terrifying demons/gods but never detailed them in the 1st edition. I’ll detail them in all their gory glory and David will illustrate them.
Zarth Revealed : Fragments of Fear. The current setting chapter,The Continent of Terror, will go into the Players’ section and I write a new world guide for the Crypt Keeper’s section, called Fragments of Fear. This will focus on the secrets and provide more adventure ideas for each location, as well as encounter tables.
This leaves only More Fiends as a current stretch goal, but I’ve now lowered the goal to £4500, because we’ve had such a positive take up of the Patrons of the Art backer level.
To replace the stretch goals I’ve now folded into the Basic Goal I’ve got a couple of ideas, but I’m going to keep them under my hat until I’ve thought them out properly.
I’ve also added a Add-On for extra copies at low cost, and if you are a Retailer or know a retailer who’d be interested in stocking C&T I’ve added free copies of Blood of the Dragon adventure to the Retail reward level.
Please let others know about this, especially those who’ve looked at the campaign before.
