Primeval Thule. Sasquatch Game Studio LLC – Rich Baker, David Noonan, Stephen Schubert, Todd Lockwood und einige weitere Bekannte aus der d20-Szene, setzen mit ihrem kommenden Sword & Sorcery Fantasysetting zeitgeistig, wie sollte es auch anders sein, auf Kickstarter? In der englischsprachigen Rollenspielszene geht momentan herzlich wenig ohne Crowdfunding. Okay, Shadowrun 5th Edition oder Star Wars: Edge of Greed (ich meine natürlich … the Empire) werden klassisch veröffentlicht, bekannte und etablierte Marken, aber sonst?
Wer auf Robert E. Howards Conan, H.P. Lovecrafts Cthulhu Mythos, Edgar Rice Burroughs, Frank Frazetta, Roy Krenkel und die Rollenspiele 13th Age, D&D 4th Edition oder Pathfinder steht, findet unter Umständen mit Primeval Thule ein neues Zuhause.
Alleine die beteiligten namenhaften Autoren und Künstler machen die geforderten 60000 $ bis zum 1. August 2013 sehr wahrscheinlich.
„Primeval Thule is a brand-new campaign setting compatible with the Pathfinder RPG, 13th Age, and 4th Edition D&D.
WHAT IS PRIMEVAL THULE?
Founded by long-time industry veterans Rich Baker, David Noonan, and Stephen Schubert, Sasquatch Game Studio is creating Primeval Thule, a savage, intense campaign setting.
Inspired by the literary traditions of sword-and-sorcery adventure, lost worlds, and fantastic horror, the land of Primeval Thule is a savage, intense campaign setting. This is a world of barbarian freebooters and dark magic, star-spawned monstrosities and elder gods, fabulous treasures and mind-blasting terror. Hunt saber-tooth tigers in steaming jungles—explore ancient cities buried in the relentless ice—battle dark cults and bloody-handed tyrants in decadent city-states. A world of glory and riches is yours to seize!
Thule’s influences are classic pulp fantasy stories such as Robert E. Howard’s Conan stories, H.P. Lovecraft’s Cthulhu mythos, and Edgar Rice Burrough’s tales of savage worlds, as brought to life by the unforgettable illustrations of artists such as Frank Frazetta and Roy Krenkel. These lurid stories and images of brawling action and cosmic horror are the bones, blood, and sinews of the Primeval Thule campaign—and it’s fantasy adventure the way it was meant to be played.
