3rd Stretch Goal - NPC Appendix
8 months ago – Mon, Apr 12, 2021 at 11:47:51 PM

Prepare for trouble—we’ve unlocked our third stretch goal!

In a daring display of awesomeness, you all have risen to the challenge and smashed through our next goal! Since we hit the 50k mark, we are drastically expanding the book’s native bestiary with an NPC appendix. That means you will have the most notorious characters from the Planes fully realized and ready to drop into any game. And for you die-hard Venture Maidens fans out there, you’ll be stoked to hear our very own Maidens will be included in this expansion. This book is getting prettier by the hour, and we know it’s just a matter of time before our party overcomes the next obstacle!

Here’s the next goal within our reach

When we hit the 60k milestone, we will bring you an entirely new school of magic! The School of Sound is packed with a bunch of new spells that manipulate the dulcet (and horrible) tones of the world. Never again struggle to find an excellent spell to use with your air guitar, operatic bellow, or prized wind chimes.

First 48-Hours!
8 months ago – Mon, Apr 12, 2021 at 10:36:31 PM

Our 48-hour promotion has ended, but the add-on fun is just beginning!

You have floored us with your support during the last two days, but the campaign is still heating up! Our 48-hour promotion to get a free enamel pin or adventure zine is officially over, but never fear–you can still grab these items as add-ons through the end of the campaign. At any time, you can choose to upgrade your pledge to include any (or all) of the excellent add-on items posted on the page. That means you can grab that gorgeous enamel pin of fate, the “Hell’s Bells” adventure zine, or a stunning set of handmade polyhedral dice with the Venture Maidens logo up through the end of the campaign, and afterwards through the pledge manager!

Magical Music - 4th Stretch Goal!
8 months ago – Mon, Apr 12, 2021 at 09:41:35 AM

What’s that we hear? It’s the sound of our fourth stretch goal unlocking!

This party train just keeps on rolling, and we have blown past another stretch goal! Since we hit the 60k mark, we are expanding the spell section of the book to introduce a whole new school of magic. Use the spells from the School of Sound to turn claps into explosions, lull creatures into a trance with your dulcet tones, or turn any instrument into a spellcasting focus. We continue to be floored by the support you are showing for this project. Your kind words, shares, and dollars are going toward realizing a dream that gets bigger by the hour. You’re showing so much support, in fact, that we have a new stretch goal in the works, our most epic one yet.

 Before we get to that, let’s discuss our next goal: 

When we hit the 70k milestone, we are elevating our print quality in a major way! With this amount of support, we can afford to bulk-print the book, which means we free up funds to increase the quality of each tome. Upgrades for both the standard and deluxe prints include include using silky photo paper, richer ink colors, and premium binding. Probably the most exciting upgrade will be the addition of gold foil-stamping for the threads of fate on the deluxe print book’s front cover, as well as the addition of a deep-purple ribbon bookmark.

But what about that new stretch goal?

We are adding a new 100k stretch goal that will expand the Hell’s Bells Adventure Zine into a full series! If we hit this goal, not only will the standard Hell’s Bells module for levels 1 through 4 be available, but we’ll include three additional zines to take your party through an adventure in the Venture Maidens setting from level 1 all the way to level 20. The best part is these additional three zines will be included for free for all backers who purchase the first issue (or receive it as part of the Collector’s Box). You get the campaign guide and an entire adventure series at this level.

Details:

  • Purchase the Hells Bells PDF or Print? Adventures 2, 3, and 4 are included free in PDF form!
  • Purchase the Collector's Box? Adventures 2, 3, and 4 are included free in PDF and print!

Let’s make it a reality together, venturers!

Thank you so much!
