November 4, 2022: Nightmare Fuel: Three Themed Dungeon Fantasy RPG Bestiaries Crowdfunding At BackerKit
Nightmare Fuel, the latest crowdfunding effort for the Dungeon Fantasy RPG, is coming to a close at 5 p.m. Central Time on November 6, 2022. If you are going to pledge to the campaign, it's time!
What's On Offer
The project features three new themed Dungeon Fantasy RPG bestiaries from three different authors.
Status, Stretch Goal, and Extras
The project met its substantial funding goal of $24,000 (custom art is expensive) and is now looking at whether or not it will hit the only stretch goal: compiling all three books into a single hardcover omnibus edition to be included as an extra volume with any pledge that includes the three softcovers. And in case it wasn't clear: You'll get those, too.
The stretch goal is at $48,000, so it's going to require about 550 backers to unlock it. Fortunately . . . the last bestiary (the Nordlond Ovinabokin, a 192-page hardcover monster manual with most of the usual suspects in it) had 685 backers. We don't need a record turnout to unlock the book, but we do need a few hundred more people!
Also available are two extras which were quite popular last time:
Sample Art and Monster Format
The artwork for the books is all in commission, and some of it has come in.
While placeholder covers are there to show something (and they've been popular/amusing enough that some want PDFs or hard copies with the cartoony covers in addition to the painted ones!), the real covers are being drawn, with Garden of Evil being farthest along:
Layout format will be similar to the Nordlond Bestiary, with the giant scorpion here as an example:
As always, each creature has an individual custom illustration, from beetle-folk (riding giant sunspiders!) to awakened shrubberies (Ni! Ni!) to the death-priest demon.
Please Pledge, Please Share!
With a few days left to go, the stretch goal is both within our reach (there are more than enough following the campaign who might pledge to get there with room to spare) – and yet still a hard lift. Pledging early in the week helps give the campaign momentum.
You can also help by expressing enthusiasm for the campaign on forums and social media. Say:
So come join in! There are several dedicated pledge levels to help you catch up on things:
