A message from AAW Games about their Kickstarter. Hurry, there’s little time left to get on board to pledge your support.
KICKSTARTER ENDS JULY 31ST, so PLEDGE YOUR SUPPORT TODAY!
I think it’s high time we reveal the monsters our amazing third-party Pathfinder publishers have dreamed up for you. Keep in mind, we still have to hit the next four stretch goals in order to get all these monsters into the Aventyr Bestiary (so spread the word while there’s still time!).
We are absolutely honored to have these incredible creative minds on board for this project, and I hope you’re as excited as I am to see these four creations come to fruition. We were already working on the art behind the scenes, and Mates Laurentiu of Romania just sent me the final creation today… thus, the reveal… (scroll down if you dare!)
WOLFGANG BAUR OF KOBOLD PRESS PRESENTS…
THE LAKE TROLL
Pebbled hide as strong as stone, claws that snatch a marching hero or his careless mule underwater, and the ability to shatter steel—these are the dangers of the Lake Troll. They love to lurk along lake shores and riverbanks or (better still) at bridges, fords, and crossings, the easier to drag prey under and drown it. But they are not merely ambush predators: In small families and clans, they hollow out whole villages and squat in the ruins, devouring all the inhabitants and gorging themselves on the poor villagers’ supplies and livestock. A few even hide in wells and cisterns, leaving by night to raid sheep or snatch careless members of the local watch.
Wolfgang Baur is the publisher at Kobold Press. He is a game designer and editor known for his work with Dragon magazine, the Dark*Matter setting, and the 5th Edition D&D adventure path Tyranny of Dragons. Kobold Press is also known for its platinum-selling Midgard Campaign Setting, recently expanded to include the Southlands region for desert, jungle, and savannah adventures.
Southlands is the newest product line from Kobold Press. Check it out at Kobold Press on DriveThruRPG.
JASON NELSON OF LEGENDARY GAMES & PAIZO PRESENTS…
The suzalisk is a herald of discord, soaring on wings of woe. Tainted offspring with blended yet disharmonious spirits, suzalisks lash out with blazing fury, leaving ashes and sorrow in their wake.
Jason Nelson is the publisher of Legendary Games and a longtime freelancer with Paizo, Wizards of the Coast, and other companies.
Check out Legendary Games’ Legendary Planet Kickstarter as we head into our final weekend!
BRIAN BERG OF TOTAL PARTY KILL GAMES PRESENTS…
THE SNAKETIPEDE (a working title)
A magical beast that is a melding of volcanic rock and pestilence that incubates in diseased piles of decaying flesh. Germs from corpses are trapped in volcanic rock as it incubates. The creature delivers disease and has fire resistance that protects it from full immersion in lava for short periods. It explodes in disease-ridden ash when slain.
Monster concept by Brian Berg (TPK Games), description and creative ideas by Michael Allen (AdventureAWeek.com)
OWEN KC STEPHENS OF ROGUE GENIUS GAMES & PAIZO PRESENTS…
THE MAGEKILLER GOLEM
The magekiller golem is a walking answer to why people play fighters. Enjoying a construct’s immunity to its persistent antimagic field and armed with automatic repeating crossbows, a reach weapon, and a prismatic sphere, the magekiller golem can also track the destination of teleportation spells, even following its targets onto other planes!
Owen K.C. Stephens is a developer for Paizo and Green Ronin, and the publisher for Rogue Genius Games. He just released Anachronistic Adventures, a 132-page Pathfinder-compatible supplement for playing pulp adventure campaigns.
Remember: These stretch goals are NOT unlocked yet, and we need your help to unlock them! Please share the Kickstarter far and wide, ask your fellow GMs to back us, post in forums and social media, and let’s make sure this book is jam-packed full of these amazing monstrosities!
