Fast forward to the present: we're converting the game into the most popular and preëminent RPG systems of today! This Backerkit crowdfunding campaign is for making two new conversions of Pink Cloud: a version using the popular 5E system, and a separate version using the Pathfinder 2E system. Both will present new Recovery-themed character options; here's a provisional overview:
Affliction Types (5E species, Pathfinder ancestries) such as the Barleycorn Folk and the Children of Chaos
The 12-Stepper Class (a 5E version and a Pathfinder 2E version)
Recovery Tribes or Fellowships (=5E Subclasses, Pathfinder Archetypes)
Prayers and Meditations (=the "spells" of the New Land)
Higher-Powered Artifacts and Recovery Swag (=magic items)
Pink Cloud has something to offer 5E and Pathfinder players, regardless of whether you're familiar with 12-Step culture or not. I mean, c'mon, King Alcohol will make for quite a opponent (or ally?) in any DnD campaign!
But this isn't just a conversion, it's a re-write. We're also aiming to include new illustrations, specially commissioned for the fantastic New Land of the Big Book.
New Bogeymen (monsters) for 5E and Pf2 include:
Bankrupt Human Concerns (B.H.C.s, a.k.a. Hobo Goblins)
The Bogeyman of Pride
The Bogeyman of Fear
The Bogeyman of Harm (a.k.a. The Nothing—The Cipher—The (Seeming) Boss Universal—The Very Devil)
Children of Chaos
Czar of the Heavens
The Eight Bedevilments
The Four Horsemen
The God of Intellect and Reason
The Grim Jester
Jails, Institutions, and Death (oh my!)
Killjoys (a.k.a. Joy Killers)
King Alcohol (a.k.a. The Stranger)
Law and Order (wrong-sized)
Lotus Eaters (a.k.a. Lotophagi)
The Lure of Money
Naturally Dishonest Unfortunates (N.D.U.s, a.k.a. “Such Unfortunates” or Lepra Cons)
The Seven Deadly Sins
The Six Anti-Franciscans
Santa Claus (a greedoholic imposter)
Skeletons in the Closet
Thoroughly Bad-Intentioned Men (T.B.I.M.s)
Twisted and Violent Tigers (T.V.T.s)
Several of these will be playable as Player Character ancestries! Content Warning: This game portrays fantastic analogs of real world afflictions and real-world recovery tropes. Though we aim for a humane and warm-hearted vibe, we acknowledge this is a touchy subject which may be too intense for some audiences.
