Karthun: Lands of Conflict on Kickstarter

Karthun: Lands of Conflict is a system-neutral campaign setting for fantasy roleplaying being developed by Exploding Rogue Studios. Created by +Brian Patterson, the mind behind the webcomic d20 Monkey, Karthun originally appeared in that venue as the protagonist's personal campaign world. It has since grown into a surprisingly well realized setting that had fans of d20 Monkey and fantasy gaming clamoring to see it in book form. Their calls have been answered.

Exploding Rogue consists of Patterson and game designer +Tracy Barnett. Together, they are planning a 160-page, full-color hardcover book that presents Karthun independent of any rules system. As their first stretch goal, if the campaign reaches $25,000, they will also release a PDF GM's Guide with rules and advice for running Karthun in a number of systems, including Fate Core and Pathfinder.

I'm a fan of d20 Monkey, and I trust Brian Patterson's ability to craft an engaging world fit for many different stories. I've worked with Tracy Barnett, and I have faith in his ability to make a project like this work. Editor +John Adamus and designer +Daniel Solis are some of the best in the business, and I know they will make the words and images in this book look absolutely amazing.

The project has already funded and is on its way to that first stretch goal. I encourage you to take a look at Karthun.
