Hi folks,

Exciting news!

Triple Ace Games has just started a Kickstarter for Land of Fire. We're offering some great pledge rewards for both existing fans and those thinking of buying into the setting. Remember, without your support this project won't get funded!

Kickstarter link

The Secrets of the Sands Revealed!
Welcome, oh noble stranger, to a land of flying carpets, bound jinn, glittering palaces, scheming wizirs, regal sphinxes, and trap-laden tombs bloated with fabulous treasure!

Freed from enslavement under the jinn five centuries ago by Suleiman the Great, the races of Al-Shirkuh, the Land of Fire, have prospered. Here, amid the endless sands and crumbling ruins of long-forgotten empires, stand glittering cities and verdant oases.

But Al-Shirkuh is changing. The temperature grows colder, the rains fall less often, and the desert is encroaching on the fertile lands. The jinn, once defeated, are gathering their strength; fire giants are raiding with impunity; the naga have returned to reclaim their homeland; and the withered undead of Hekata stir in their majestic pyramids.

Welcome indeed to Land of Fire, the first major geographic expansion to Hellfrost setting.

Inside this volume you will find:
* Five player character races.
* Rules for creating native characters.
* Details on the Devoted and Faithful, the twin creeds of the desert folk.
* Descriptions and rules of the 12 major gods and six magical traditions of Al-Shirkuh.
* New setting rules for surviving the burning sands.
* A detailed gazetteer exploring the major realms, cities, and sites.
* A bestiary stocked full of desert-dwelling creatures.
* A full-color map of the great desert.

To use this book, the Game Master requires the Hellfrost Player’s Guide and Hellfrost Bestiary. A player needs only the Hellfrost Player’s Guide. The Land of Fire Player's Guide contains only the player information from the Land of Fire book.

That is so awesome.

Yet as you're releasing this right after the sale I am going to have to beg and whinge for most of this kickstarter to get my better half to agree to me getting this.

Yeah, finally! Very Happy

Is the date for the PDF also June 2013, like the book? In other Kickstarters the PDFs are usually published a few months earlier!

The PDF date is also June because most of them are going to be sent on USB cards, rather than just mailed.

Everything is in one book. We're not repeating material from the HFPG or HFB, which is why some packages offer them as well.

Nice!

Looking at the Kickstarter Page I'm a bit confused.....

What is "Land of Fire Player's Guide" going to be, if you say that all you need is the Hellfrost Players Guide?

*Sigh*

It's a shame, that i can't back the project, because i don't use credit cards.

Summer 2013 from the TAG store, it is then!

I'm rolling out my carpet, waiting patiently. Smile

The first section of Land of Fire contains all the player info (races, archetypes, new Edges & Hindrances, the gods, about the land). The LOF Player's Guide is that section -- something you can give to players without them seeing all the monsters and gazetteer info (packed with adventure seeds, naturally).

But they'll still need the HFPG to make use of it.

We're looking into whether we can tie in PayPal.

Same here, no CC. And i hope there will be a way to get the canvas map apart from the kickstarter pledge.... I will never get that level of money raised that fast..... Not until januari 27th (birthday)

But on a less whiny note: i am at home with the flu, and i still did a happy dance! ( althoug watching me dance isn't a happy sight, so my youngest daugther tells me Smile )

The map will be in the main store once the book is out.

Sorry to hear you've got 'flu. Lots of bugs going around here as well (he says listening to the wife blowing her cold-infected nose).

Please note that without Kickstarter this project will be a LONG way from being released. If you're on forums that allows posting of adverts, we'd appreciate your support. This is especially true for foreign-language sites -- we know the Germans are big gamers.
