Kickstarter Barking - Revelry in Torth

+Venger Satanis is at it again! This time around he is focusing on a heavy pulp Swords & Sorcery adventure bathed in the shades of gray one is typically used to seeing in the torrid pages of 50s and 60s era S&S. 

Venger as we know is the writer of the acclaimed Liberation of the Demon Slayer and The Islands of Purple-Hunted Putrescence as well as the publisher of the shiny new Draconic Magazine! He is a unique voice that carries through and harkens back to genres and styles that many have attempted to imbrace but few have successfully emulated. In other words, the man does some fine damn work and if you haven't heard of him you should look him up over at the Venger's Old School Gaming Blog.

As for Revelry in Torth, well let the Kickstarter talk about itself:

Revelry in Torth takes place in a post-holocaust world (7 of the most powerful wizards created one gargantuan fireball to destroy the world in order to prevent a machine slave revolt).  The people of Torth live in cities surrounded by a desert of endless night and peril.
This particular adventure is set in the city called Aryd's End, during a time of festivity.  Several factions are making plans and hatching schemes.  No one is all good or all evil, merely shades of grey.
PCs will become entangled in a murder and the fate of Torth is at stake.  Sandbox, urban adventure, dark, Conan-esque sword & sorcery, just a hint of scifi, and very little gonzo.
You can bet that somewhere along the way, Revelry in Torth will include some "inappropriate material", but nothing too hardcore, grindhouse, or shocking.  Check out my blog to see what I and my previous products are about:  http://vengersatanis.blogspot.com/This adventure will be about 21 pages long, give or take a couple pages.  For characters level 1 - 3.  Hopefully, Revelry in Torth is part one of a trilogy.  But that depends on you guys.  
Revelry in Torth is funding through the end of the month with a final goal of $2,500 dollars. If Venger's past kickstarter is any indication he'll be sure to make it!
