Project Update: New Investigations Unlocked! Let’s Make Another Item!
We’ve unlocked yet another stretch goal, backers, adding new adventure content to The Magnus Archives Roleplaying Game. This grows both the standard corebook and the Limited Deluxe Edition—making everyone’s rewards better!
Here’s what we have in mind for our next stretch goal:
In the Cypher System, players roll all the dice. And there aren’t a great many tables or charts a GM needs to reference during play. So many gaming groups prefer an alternative to the traditional GM screen, one that removes the barrier between GM and player.
The Magnus Archives playmat will be a beautiful centerpiece on your gaming table. And along the edges you’ll have reference info of interest to the GM and the players—things like stress sources, the damage track, and special roll result info; task difficulty and damage from hazards tables for the GM; and distance definitions, weapon damage info, and other things players and GMs sometimes look up during play. It’ll all be there in front of you so that you can focus on your story, not on flipping through the book.
The pleasant fabric surface with rubberized backing gives you a great die-rolling surface. It’s well-sized at 24″ x 32″, large enough to show off its art and information nicely, but not too big for your gaming table. And of course it will feature striking artwork from The Magnus Archives Roleplaying Game.
It will be available as an add-on and added to the rewards for backers at the Avatar and Entity pledge levels! That's right: if you're backing at one of those levels, this will automagically be added to your rewards. And if you're not—time to start thinking about upgrading?
We’ll unlock the playmat at $1,550,000.
This has been a really exciting campaign, but there are still thousands of gamers out there who haven’t even heard of this campaign yet, or who don’t grok how cool an RPG of The Magnus Archives will be. Won’t you help spread the word a bit? The more we help them find this campaign, the faster we’ll hit stretch goals, and the more we’ll unlock!
Thanks for your support!
