Thank you to everyone who has backed this project!

Our higher level backers will now be receiving an exclusive gift from us as a small thank you for their extra support. Anyone who backs our Kickstarter at the Admiral level or higher will now be receiving a full-size poster (folded), a set of monster stickers, and a postcard with a handwritten thank you note. This gift is in addition to all of your other listed rewards. 

All of our backer levels will be able to select our add-ons during fulfillment. However, this additional bonus will not be available after our Kickstarter ends and will only be sent to our Admiral level backers or higher. If you were going to pick up the add-ons, don't miss out on these extras.

$25K Stretch Goal Unlocked - Two Additional Races
about 1 year ago – Fri, Mar 29, 2019 at 08:34:23 PM

The $25K stretch goal is unlocked and we'll be adding two additional races to the book. I don't want to set in stone the two races we will be releasing. I can't reveal both of the options, but I will say that we have a few options we are looking at and have decided on one, the Cursed Soul. Playing a Cursed Soul allows a player to create a PC that is cursed to exist between life and death, between the person they were and the ghostlike being they have become. I have concept artwork being worked and will share it in the future with more details on the racial traits.

The two additional races will be added to our current list of four playable races: 

  •  Mechasouls were built, but are alive, the result of gnomish technology being unintentionally combined with a forest spirit.
  •  Taurs are bovine humanoids known for their natural sense of direction. They prize strength and skill above all else.
  •  Vodas are an amphibious race from the sea that use illusory magic to hide among the other people of Vodari.
  •  Aurirn, or Sea Dwarves, are an amphibious dwarven subrace who mine the deepest parts of the sea.

New Stretch Goals Added - Quick Start Guide & Five More Random Tables
about 1 year ago – Thu, Mar 28, 2019 at 10:45:23 PM

Our Kickstarter is getting close to being 250% funded and unlocking two additional races for the book. Since we've reached most of our stretch goals, we're excited to announce that we have added two new stretch goals to this Kickstarter.

Seas of Vodari Quick Start Guide (PDF)

If we can reach this 500 backer stretch goal, we'll release a Quick Start Guide in May 2019. The PDF guide will provide 50+ pages of content to start your voyage on the Seas of Vodari. While it will only be a sample of the content we'll have ready for the final book, we'd love to be able to provide our backers with content this spring. Early Access backers would see this first (as with any content).

Five More Random Tables

The Seas of Vodari are full of adventure, intrigue, and magic. If we can unlock this 35K stretch goal, we'll add even more random tables to the book. We're looking to add more tables full of trinkets, plunder, and other things to find. We want to give more lists of places to visit, people to meet, random encounters to run, and more. 

Thank you to all of you who have backed this project. Please tell  everyone about this project so we can unlock even more stretch goals and  don't forget to follow us on social media. 

200% Funded! Pregenerated PCs (PDFs) $20K Stretch Goal Unlocked
about 1 year ago – Mon, Mar 25, 2019 at 10:58:21 PM

Reaching 200% of our funding goal has allowed us to add more content to the book. Having the budget to create more ship modifications, more monsters, and more artwork is just amazing and we couldn't have done it without the support of our backers.

Reaching $20k in funding also unlocks our Pregenerated PCs stretch goal that will be provided to all backer reward levels. We will create a collection of pregenerated PDF character sheets, each with an illustration of the PC to hand out to players. The collection will provide a group of typical adventurers that fit a swashbuckling and sorcery setting. Whether you are running a seafaring adventure for first time players or veterans in a hurry, we hope these will be a useful resource.

We're not even half way through this campaign, so I'm hoping we can reach 250% or even 300% funding, and unlock even more stretch goals. We also have a special 500 backer stretch goal that will be announced soon.

300 Backers - More Background Options Unlocked
about 1 year ago – Sat, Mar 23, 2019 at 08:27:48 PM

All of our background options help players create PCs that fit a seafaring world. The book already contains a variety of backgrounds and variant backgrounds that include Castaway, Cartographer, Variant Sailor: Privateer, Variant Sailor: Ship's Surgeon, Variant Sailor: Navigator, and Variant Sailor: Explorer.

Since we reached 300 backers, we can now up the page count and add even more background options to the book. 

  • We have added two more backgrounds to the book
  • We have added a d20 table of substitute bonds specifically for a Vodari campaign. Our substitute bonds tie into the locations and organizations of Vodari and can be selected instead of the background specific bonds.

We want to make sure Vodari isn't just a world where you have to play a pirate. It's a big place and we've worked hard to make sure there are locations and organizations for almost any character to tie themselves into the world.
