More Perilous Journeys – Revised Pledges and more!

I got a lot of great feedback on the More Perilous Journeys campaign page, and as a result, I’ve made substantial revisions to the campaign page. The campaign was originally kept very simple. Print+PDF or PDF; all the new stuff, or all the new stuff AND the old stuff.

Simple, yes. But folks want what they want, and TFT folks know what they want. And YOU let me know what you wanted.

So I adapted.

There are still tiers that sweep up all the TFT books that GB is making, and has made. But now there are also a few more options. Also, discounts for jumping in on the Kickstarter to help get it funded. Check out the new pledges, prices, and campaign overview. And tell all your friends.

There are two reward levels that get you all five of the new adventures being offered during the More Perilous Journeys campaign.

What more?

I’ve also added some preview images that give a much better idea of what the books will look like. Some are work-in-progress, others represent past books, but since I’m using the same art team . . . pretty representative!

The covers for the five new books utilize the same template as those from Five Perilous Journeys. Inspired by the iconic Megahex tiles of The Fantasy Trip, here are two example of the cover layouts. Of course, the images will be added later!

I’ve already selected Ksenia Kozhovnikova to illustrate Dragon Hunt! And she knows dragons!

Image is “Maendrath” from The Dragons of Rosgarth, by Ksenia

My art team is pretty consistent from project to project, though I’m always looking for outstanding new talent. Here’s the cover of Citadel of Ice, done by Rick Troula for the last campaign:

Art, Maps, and Layout

Layout and editing are underway, and will continue as the campaign progresses. Here’s a screen capture from Roc of Sages, which is substantially complete in layout, needing only more fine-tuning of the language. It is representative of both the prior books, and the format of the upcoming products. The maps (see below) will be replaced by Glynn with something more than a rough sketch!

 

TFT is a tactical battle game, and a roleplaying game. But good maps make for good fights. Fortunately, I’ve good good help. Glynn Seal, the ENnie Gold Medal cartographer in 2018 for his work on his Midderlands setting, has once again agreed to provide the maps for these five new books.

Here’s an example of his B/W work from Vampire Hunter Belladonna, featuring a tactical hex-map.

One more spread! This one from Citadel of Ice, showing a topographical map of the titular Citadel on the rapidly disintegrating iceberg, as well as a tracker who has clearly made a very poor 3/IQ roll.

I hope that, despite the art and maps being mostly pending, these images give you a feel for what the team shall provide.

Made it this far? Good
