Expand Your Horizons


In D&D 5th edition, leveling up means getting more abilities and more power, but what of the stories we tell? When you save the town of Wendleton from the clutches of a vile cult, what on your character sheet represents your heroism in the eyes of the people? What about your year-long trek through the elemental plane of fire?  

Tome of Intangible Treasures is a compendium of 450+ new ways to provide story-based character rewards and mechanical growth options. Perfect for GMs and players alike, this tome is full of ways to express your characters via boons, blessings, charms, pacts, titles, histories, advanced trainings, and more.  

Earn the blessing of a nexus of nature spirits, seek the training of a powerful mage to learn the ways of the Master of the Mystic Arcanum, and represent your character's story so far with Titles and Histories.

Whether you need a cool new power to give your player after they restored an artifact of a deity or you're a player looking for a way to make your cleric/bard flavor build work mechanically, there's something for everyone in its treasure trove of secrets.

Grow Your Character

In D&D 5e, leveling up means getting more abilities and more power. But what of the stories we tell? When you save the town of Wendleton from the clutches of a vile cult, what on your character sheet represents your heroism in the eyes of the people? What about your year-long trek through the plane of elemental fire?

 Under my tutelage, you shall unlock the mysteries of the universe.  The secrets of the stars, the hidden meaning of every arcane scribbling, the very essence of magic itself. Astora Valanna, Archmange

The titles and histories found in this book bring simple, narrative-focused rewards that allow you to reflect major character growth with mechanical abilities and effects. That town you saved? Word of mouth begins to spread, and you have little trouble convincing others that you're a true hero once they hear you're the Savior of Wendleton. That trip through the plane of fire? You've become so adept at traversing hot, hostile environments that you could serve as a guide yourself.

Between adventures, train to maximize your abilities by finding a teacher who can pass on knowledge of an advanced training. Become an Arcane Conduit, a Deific Invoker, a Wild Warden, or any of the other dozens of trainings that suit your specific build.

"A Celestial Being Grants a Blessing" - by J.P. Vilela

Boons, Blessings, Charms, and Pacts give you a plethora of new quest rewards and character development opportunities as you interact with the many and varied entities of power in your world. Perhaps you will be blessed by a nature spirit for cleansing a shrine, or form a pact with a long-sealed divine agent. Maybe you will be granted a charm as a favor for aiding a fairy or granted an enigmatic boon for releasing an inscrutable agent of the realms beyond the void. Whether you're a GM or a player,Tome of Intangible Treasures has something for every occasion.

Funding and Stretch Goals

Portions of the book are already complete, but in order to be published it needs funding for additional writers, artists, editing, layout, playtesting, and printing costs. As funding expands beyond the original goal, additional content will be added and additional goals will be revealed!

 UNLOCKED: $15k Abyssal Brews Collaboration! New boons, blessings, pacts, and/or charms designed and illustrated by Matthew and Fernando of Abyssal Brews get added to the book (and card box set)! UNLOCKED: $20k Expanded Boons and Blessings: Additional boons and blessings including those of a more mundane (e.g. from an adventurer's or merchant's guild) nature are added to the book and card box set. UNLOCKED: $25k Expanded Artwork! Unique symbols for each boon and blessing will be added to the book, forming a sort of alphabet or character set for each entity type! UNLOCKED: $30k Epic Trainings! I expand the book with more trainings specifically designed for high level characters. UNLOCKED: $40k Expanded NPC Art! Each of the 40+ master trainers in the book gets an illustrated portrait.

About Me

I'm Josh Rosing, a solo TTRPG content creator who's been playing, running, and designing for role-playing games, including Dungeons and Dragons, Fate system, Shadowrun, Savage Worlds, and Age of the Rebellion/Edge of the Empire systems since 2006. Lone Colossus Games is my company, and through it I produce high-quality TTRPGs and supplements like Injuries & Vile Deeds, Wyrmlings RPG, and Cyber//Core:HACK to inspire you to newer and greater heights in your games. I put up a good professional front that sometimes makes Lone Colossus Games look like a whole team of people, but it's really just me and the freelancers I get to hire because of backers like you!

Shipping

I won't be charging for shipping & handling (and VAT) until just before the products are ready to ship. I will collect this via the pledge manager.

 US pricing ranges from $14 for just a hardcover up to $25 for all possible physical add-ons. Canada pricing ranges from $19 to $28. UK pricing ranges from $25 to $59. EU pricing average ranges from $30 to $55. Australia/New Zealand pricing ranges from $52 to $110. Rest of World pricing average ranges from $65 to $110.
Unfortunately, I can't deliver to Russia or Ukraine


Shipping prices are always on the rise and the estimates above assume some increase from current rates. If lower prices are available when it comes time to charge for shipping, you'll benefit from those lower prices.

Customs-friendly shipping will be provided by shipping duty pre-paid (DDP) from the US. While this increases the shipping cost for international pledges, it makes sure delivery is as smooth as it can be.

Certain locations, like Brazil, are risky to deliver packages to (even DDP) and I encourage backers in those regions to back digitally unless they are familiar with the ins and outs of receiving imports to their country.

Terms and Conditions, and Other Things to Know

I like to be clear and upfront about what to expect and what my policies are for various other miscellaneous things that might come up. You'll find details about refunds and fulfillment below.

Communication
I will send out regular updates on the project page throughout production and fulfillment, at least once a month  (sometimes more frequently, as needed). I am usually good about responding quickly, and you can always email me at [email protected] if you need help with your pledge.

Refunds
I will grant refunds for pledges within 30 days of the campaign's end date, no questions asked. After that, I cannot grant refunds and if you choose not to fill out your survey or pay shipping and tax on time, your pledged amount will be considered a donation toward the project.

Fulfillment
Fulfillment of digital rewards is being targeted at December 2024, and fulfillment of physical rewards is being targeted at May 2025.

Once physical fulfillment has begun (once physical items start shipping out to backers), all remaining backers who have not yet filled out their surveys will have 30 days to complete and submit their surveys to receive their rewards. After that, any backers who have still not filled out their surveys and paid their shipping and taxes will have their pledges for physical items considered a donation toward the project.

Dates and deadlines will be made clear through campaign updates, and reminders will be send on a regular basis throughout the post-campaign timeline to remind backers who haven't yet completed their surveys.

Damaged or Missing Items, and Lost or Misdelivered Packages
You have 30 days after your package arrives to report to [email protected] any needed replacement items for damaged or missing items in your order. If your order was damaged, be sure to include pictures of the packaging as well. For packages that go missing, you have 45 days to report it after the item is sent (or 60 days for international packages) to have me resend or follow up on the items. Packages that are sent to an incorrect address as a result of an error in your entry will require you to pay for shipping the new package. You will be notified before addresses are locked, and will have a chance to update your address until just before fulfillment begins. If you move or your address otherwise changes, be sure to update your address in your survey.

Backers are responsible for providing correct and up to date email addresses on BackerKit, and for reading updates as they are made to keep informed about this information and the deadline dates. Tracking information for packages will be sent to the provided email addresses, so it is the backer's responsibility to follow up on their packages should problems arise.

Crowdfunding is not the same as Pre-Order
Backing the project means pledging your support for the project itself, and is not strictly the purchasing of items. While I will do everything I can to deliver all promised items as part of fulfilling this project with your help, and have a solid track record of having fully fulfilled two projects of similar scale already, there is never a 100% guarantee that backers will receive their items with crowdfunding. By pledging, you recognize this and agree to it.
