Yes, and I am terribly unprepared. But I will get it started this year even if only barely.
I will definitely have a short adventure, Rogue Island, as a free download so that people can get a taste of the Sea of Stars and what the setting is like.
The current plan is to produce an illustrated PDF, about 120 pages, broken down (roughly) as follows:
- Introduction to and history of the Sea of Stars, 12 pages
- New and adapted species with support material, 24 pages
- Magic items, spells and such, 24 pages
- New Monsters, 20 pages
- The world and places to visit, 20 pages
- GM Advice and adventure seeds, 20 pages
Most of this, apart from the GM advice, I already have written just not organized into a form ready for publication but then it will need to be properly vetted and edited, art commissioned and proper layout make it readable and interesting.
What would people want to see more of? Less of (down to none at all)? The initial mechanics would be for Pathfinder but I would be happy to include a D&D5 or FATE adaption or both as stretch goals.
In other stretch goals, I have tentative agreements from Ben Baugh (noted game author), Brandes Stoddard, and Trey Causey to contribute to a Sea of Stars Companion PDF which would be a bonus beyond the base campaign setting.
Here is a list of some of the artists I hope to have involved on the project, but always looking for more.
I would love to hear back from you about what you would like to see in such a kickstarter and what would make you more likely to participate in one for the Sea of Stars. Thank you in advance.
