Kickstarter Barking - The Lost City of Barakus

As Tenker has already reported Frog God Games has just started a new kickstarter campaign for another entry into the Lost Lands. This time in the form of a new version of Barakus.

I was lucky enough to get a copy of the old Necromancer Games version last Christmas as part of FGG's grab-bag sale, but I've already jumped on board and broke my "no more kickstarters" resolution. Why? The price point. The last FGG kickstarter was one that I sat back from and kept a tight mouth about. I wasn't happy with what I thought of as a ludicrously high price point for even a .pdf of the book. This time, however, a $40.00 (limited to 600) pledge level secures the back either a physical copy of the Pathfinder or the Swords & Wizardry edition of the game.

Honestly that's pretty tight and I hope this is a sign to a good trend to come.



From the Kickstarter:

The Lost City of Barakus, designed to take characters from 1st to 5th or 6th level (or higher), is as much of a campaign setting as an adventure. Detailed within these pages is the great, bustling metropolis of Endhome, the Penprie Forest and Duskmoon Hills located north of that city, and, finally, the huge dungeon that is the Lost City of Barakus. Within all these areas are many adventures, NPCs, and locations for the party to explore, interact with and conquer. How and in what order the party chooses to take on the various challenges before them is entirely yours (the GM’s) and the players’ choice.
So take a look and lets all hope for FGG's success!
