Rules Preview: Elves of Eventide

8 Dec

The characters are one of the most exciting parts of the Edge of Eventide Dramatic Campaign. Their design is integral to the plot, their back story is the story of the campaign. This means that I can also include rules and new game material pertinent to each individual character. As we get ever closer to the first release, I am hoping to show off some of that material, giving you a sense of what you can expect from the Edge of Eventide.

Cenasar Elves

First look at the Cenasar Elves

Cenasar Elves

First off, I am giving you a look at Leylinia, the elven cleric in the group. One of the things that makes her so special is that she is a that she is from a new subrace of elves, the Cenasar. The Cenasar are elves who share a bond with the passing seasons, gaining special abilities and resistances based on the time of year. This bond even influences their appearance. Looking at Leylinia, for example, it is pretty apparent that the first adventure is set in autumn.

I hope you enjoy these previews. If you have any questions or comments, please leave them below and thank you for supporting the Edge of Eventide.

Eventide is Coming!

28 Oct

Edge of Eventide Banner

Thanks to the support of over 50 backers on Patreon, I am busy writing the Edge of Eventide Dramatic Campaign! As of this posting, the Player Characters are in their second round of design and the overall plot of the campaign is going through a number of drafts as its approaches its final form. Excitingly, the first adventure in Arc 1 is starting to come together as well!

Backers over on Patreon have been getting an early look at some of this material, including the first adventure description, an early draft of Valtirus’ Character Portrait, and more. Although you can expect to see some of this material here, backers are invited to give their feedback and learn a lot more about the process by which the Edge of Eventide is created!

What’s Next

In the coming weeks, the first adventure will go into writing, along with the Player’s Guide, GM’s Guide, and the Aubenglade Gazetteer. Backers will get to see early drafts of this material before anyone else. In addition, the sketches for all 6 player characters have arrived. Supporters of the project will get a look at these before they are made final as well!

In addition to the great things going on at the Patreon site, this portal will be getting a lot of new content in the coming weeks. Expect to see an entire section for Eventide players, covering each of the available character in some detail (spoiler free of course). Game Masters will details on the tone and theme of the campaign as well as the first adventure description!

Sounds of Eventide

After talking with the folks over at Syrinscape, they have agreed to make all of the unique sounds created for the Edge of Eventide FREE to supporters of the Patreon. If we hit the $3,000 goal, all of the sound sets will go out to backers at no charge. If you have not given Syrinscape a try, I cannot recommend it highly enough. It is the premier way to add sounds to your game!

24 Hours until Pirate Loot Kickstarter Launch

20 Aug

24 Hours Until LaunchIn just 24 hours, the Pirate Loot Kickstarter project will launch! I am, of course, a bundle of nerves (see pic), but I truly hope that all of you are excited to see this project get underway.

So, I want to thank you all for coming along with me this far. I know I speak for the team when I say, we greatly appreciate any support you can give us, even if it is only a tweet in support, helping us spread the news. Pirate Loot will only become a reality with your help!

I’d also like to invite you to take a look at the Pirate Loot Kickstarter project before it goes live. Please note that until the moment I hit the launch button, details are subject to change (I am still contemplating altering a few small details), but this should give you a very good idea of what you can expect from the project.

High tide is in 24 hours, then we sail! I hope you are on-board!
