Swordfish Islands: Hexcrawl Adventures on Hot Springs Island - Kickstarter
The Swordfish Islands: Hexcrawl Adventures Kickstarter is done in a little over 24 hours. Here's a quick overview:
Hot Springs Island is a high fantasy sandbox adventure setting that can be used with any table top role playing game. It's comprised of two books: One for players and one for the game master.
A Field Guide to Hot Springs Island is a fully illustrated, 240 page book for players. It is written "in-character" and can be used by characters in the game world to help identify plants and monsters, translate ancient languages, and as a resource of advice and rumors.
The Dark of Hot Springs Island is the game master's book. It is a fully illustrated 192 page book. Hot Springs Island is a hexcrawl, and the Dark contains all the details needed to run a sandbox game there. There are 75 locations on the island, and 26 maps ranging from ogre villages to a ruined elven city to the volcanic lair of a vain efreet. Seven factions, 87 interconnected non-player characters and 300 problematic treasures are sure to generate plenty of lingering repercussions each time your players make a decision. Finally, 448 random events and encounter motivations help ensure that every play-through of Hot Springs Island can explode into wildly different outcomes from the same basic parameters.
Its system neutral and all of the writing is done. Kickstarter funds are going towards editing, printing and shipping. It looks fantastic and you can support it in .pdf or print. Make sure you jump in before this beautiful looking hex-crawl campaign ends!
