THE RPG SWAG BAG
The underlying purpose of my small busines has been to eventually create a MASSIVE, MIXED, set of hundreds of pieces including assorted sized tiles, tokens, mats, rooms, monsters, and more that a First-Time DM can buy to have a huge collection of everything they need to run almost any fantasy RPG game, or as a Birthday, Christmas, Thank You or Hobby Encouragement Present. And now... IT'S TIME.
The RPG SWAG BAG is an attempt to give you all of the components pictured above and more in a massive All-in-One complete starter kit.
Imagine you're ready to take the plunge as a DM and start playing and hosting a Fantasy RPG for a group of lucky adventurers ready to take up blade and shield, staff and bow - and all you need is some equipment, some dungeon tiles and terrain for your table-top to start weaving your stories. If you're just starting out you probably don't have a big box of tiles, markers, tokens, mats yet.
I want to bring all of the basic things you need into a single kit that you can use in virtually any campaign. I have all of the design skill and experience to create everything in this kit and more as I have done previously with my small RPG token/tile business, Game Tile Warehouse. All I need, is your funding and support to make it the biggest, baddest, best and perhaps even the first, all-in-one Dungeon Master Kit.
Drop your adventurers into the thick of the action to travel the world learning the fate of highly varied terrains and exciting locations with unique history and features ready for your RPG that you can use as ideas and jump-off points for your own quests, with all of the bits and pieces needed to set up a matching physical atmosphere.
Stuck for story ideas? Already set in motion, a large mix of detailed open-ended stories and scenes via a 25 page detailed World History describing over 20 Locations which you can add extra details to, fleshing out this ready-made kit-world to suit hundreds of campaigns! Need the setting for an impending Demonic War? A long journey? Somewhere challenging to obtain a special herb? A show-down in the Swamp? Contact with a lost race? Difficult terrains that make the players think outside the box? Wondrous lost worlds? A Desert-locked Asylum, A remote Ice-Prison? Extraordinary Wonders? Ruined Temples? Inhospitable Magical Lands? Raging Oceans? Unique Monsters and Creatures? A Colourful and Coherent World History to tie everything together? A Royal Observatory high in the Mountains? A Gladiatorial Arena? A Large Fortress or Cavern Floorplan? This Swag Bag has a unique world map, written history and terrain for all of it and more. With your assistance there will be specially designed mats for each location, from Jungle, Forest, Swamp, Mountain, Plains, Tundra, Ice, Lakes, Rivers, Wasteland, Desert, Beach and Ocean AND a World Map to go with them so your adventurers can chart their journey or know where in the world they in relation to the wider picture.
These will be combined with hundreds of assorted sized mixed tiles used to create virtually any setting you desire with just one kit. Need a castle, fields, city – no problem. Need a boat, cart, haystack? - no problem. Monsters? The Swag Bag includes a dozen new types of boss monsters unique to the world locations with many suggestions for others within the world histories offering loads of jump-off points for creative expansion.
With the Swag bag you can set-up a roadside caravan, a crystal cavern or a forest clearing for an ambush and countless other scenes. You can add some 3d crystals, or tiles of trees, bushes, skeletons, treasure, traps and hundreds more choices to your environment. It could include a generous starter pack of mixed dice and a bag to keep them in, and a striking DM Screen to make your private rolls as you take your adventurers through their paces. For enhancing game props imagine some beautifully textured parchment graphics included for you to make up your character sheets and two or even three unique magical font scripts specially designed for you to add to your fonts and craft arcane artifacts and atmospheres. There could be spell effects, round tiles, square tiles, hexagonal tiles, even a dragon on a treasure hoard... enough to pretty much create any terrain or environment with a matching art style that you need - without having to buy dozens of kits.
The Swag Bag campaign is due to go live on Kickstarter in just a few days time.
