Karthun Kickstarter in its Final Hours

The Karthun: Lands of Conflict Kickstarter wraps up tonight at 10:00 PM EDT. Over the last month, the project has collected pledges of over $42,000 from more than 1,000 backers. The system-neutral setting book has been expanded from 160 to 320 pages and will now include a 24"x36" poster map of the world of Karthun. In addition, a GM's Guide will be published in PDF giving rules and advice for a half-dozen systems, including Fate, Dungeon World, and 5th Edition D&D.

I'm really looking forward to seeing this project develop. What I've seen of the setting in d20 Monkey is a stylish and exciting take on fantasy, and I can't wait to have the book in my hands.

Congratulations to +Brian Patterson and +Tracy Barnett on their first venture together as Exploding Rogue Studios!

For those who may not be familiar, Discworld is the setting of an extremely popular series of fantasy novels written by Sir Terry Pratchett. The Disc consists of a flat, circular plane resting on the backs of four elephants who in turn stand on the shell of an enormous turtle which swims through space. It began as a fairly traditional — if satirical — fantasy world, but through over 40 novels, Pratchett advanced the setting into a rich canvas on which to poke fun at the peculiarities of modern life.

The first edition of the Discworld RPG was based on GURPS Third Edition, and it included GURPS Lite, a pared down version of the core system. Still, it relied perhaps too much on knowledge of th…
