OSR Weird Fantasy Adventure Module Kickstarter Campaign

Kort’thalis Publishing has launched a Kickstarter campaign to develop their second weird fantasy OSR adventure module The Islands of Purple-Haunted Putrescence.

Back the Kickstarter here

About a year ago, I had an idea for a campaign, mega-dungeon, and optional rule guide called Liberation of the Demon Slayer.  But, I didn’t use kickstarter to self-publish it for two reasons.  First, I didn’t know enough about this crowd-funding phenomenon.  Second, I didn’t know if I could do it.

Seeing it through to the end and being happy with the results were my goals.  Please check out DriveThruRPG, RPGNow (where The Baleful Sorcerer of Tsathag’kha is also available for FREE), or amazon.com to see how Liberation of the Demon Slayer turned out.  I’ve posted a couple LotDS review links below in the FAQ secton.

Now, I’m ready to embark upon module #2.  What makes this one special… different than all the other D&Desque modules out there?  I’m going to bring a level of weirdness, science-fantasy, gonzo (without getting too silly), and horror/exploitation that you’ve rarely seen – yes, there will be scantily clad females!  Last House on the Left meets Heavy Metal with an unhealthy dose of Lovecraft’s Dreamlands!

Rather than another dungeon crawl (but there will still be dungeon areas in which to delve), this is an above-ground wilderness exploration with tons of NPC encounters – various denizens, factions, and shipwrecked islanders either trying to survive or vying for power.

Specifically, adventurers will explore three islands in close proximity that have been visited by a wyrm-riding empire, extra-dimensional invaders, space aliens, Elves, Dwarves, Humans, and more. They’ll find black pylons enabling time/space travel, an devil-god worshiping temple of extra-dimensional properties, a shattered dome city, and most importantly, The Thing That Rots From The Sky!
