Good Evening Glorious Backers and Curious Onlookers,

If you are due a pdf copy of the 5th Edition Adventure The Sorcerer Under the Mountain, you should have just been sent a link to a free copy via an email from

To be clear if you backed at the following levels you should have got this:

  • New School Torchbearer 
  • New School Sheild Bearer 
  • Head Torchbearer 
  • Head Shieldbearer 
  • Sorcerer Under the Mountain

Its also been sent out to those people who pre-ordered it via

If you are due this pdf, but have not received it please message me via Kickstarter. 

The printed version should be available as a POD in about a weeks time. Its currently at the printers and I'm waiting for a successful proof.

Update about the OSR Rulebook (Tales of the Sorcerer Under the Mountain). While I've had a successfull print proof, there was a handful of last-minute, typos that I wanted to correct. Its back with the printers and should come back about the same time as the 5th edition adventure does. As a result I will issue pod codes for both books at the same time, to avoid any confusion about what has and has been sent out. 

The stretch goals are currently being worked on. The standalone adventures (Fires from Below, The Curse of the Emerald Swan and The Ruinous Jungles) are in various states of completion. I'm working on the rest and should have solid progress by the end of the month when I shall give you a fuller report on where I'm up to.

Hope you had a good holidays, and the New Year is treating you well so far.

Backerkit closes tomorrow

Good Evening Glorious Backers and Curious Onlookers,

Just a quick reminder I'm locking down Backerkit tomorrow. This means that if you want to buy any additional add-ons you need to do it by 12 midnight GMT. 

Also if you haven't returned your Backer's Survey, which was issued via Backerkit, you need to fill it in so I can send you your rewards.   Also, I'm going to be finalising the pdf, so if you don't get me your Backer's Survey in I won't know your prefered name to go in the book. 

Once again thanks to everyone who has bought additional add-ons while Backerkit has been open. This has been the first time I've used this service and its been useful and worthwhile.

Backer Surveys sent out, please respond

Good Morning Glorious Backers and Curious Onlookers,

Backer surveys have gone out via Backerkit, where you'll be able to tell me which addons you purchased with your pledge and buy additional ones. Sheildbearers this is where you pay for your postage. 

Also, note I've added our D100 Sci-fi game River of Heaven Refreshed and its companion To the Stars to the list of addons in Backerkit. Like the Road to Hell, it's at a significant discount but isn't part of the D101 Treasure Chest bundle. 

I'll be closing Backerkit on 1st November, but will be issuing pdf versions of the OSR Rules/5th Edition adventure when I get the backer surveys in, which I reckon will be early next week.  So the quicker everyone gets back to me, the quicker I can issue the main campaign rewards.

If you are a Curious Onlooker who missed the campaign, the good news is that I can offer all the pledge items and campaign addons via Backerkit at the same prices as I did during the campaign. I'll freely admit that August was a funny month to run the campaign since I know a lot of people will have been on holiday (myself included!). So here's your chance to grab the books and addons, most of which are at Summer Sale prices! The pre-order store will also close on 1st November. 

All the best
