So a lot has happened since I last made the time to write a blog post.
The GMs Toolkit concept is moving forwards.
As some of you may know I’ve been increasingly active over on Twitter for a while now and I’ve started talking to some really interesting Indie games Devs.
When the GMs Toolkit was mentioned it resonated with a couple of them – to the point that (the Ennie Award-winning) Stephen Hart and I decided we’d split the writing duties and create a series of resources that folks could opt into as a low-cost high-reward crowdfunding campaign
Fast forward to today and the GMs Toolkit has spawned two successful Kickstarter Projects based around the concept and we have released our first 50 pieces of content which is available either Drivethru RPG, our Etsy Store or TheGrinningFrog.com
Each piece of the GMs Toolkit content contains 10 things, be they characters, locations, magical items etc which the GM can drop into an adventure-ready to go – they also include 2-3 adventure hooks to help the GM incorporate them into games.
The GMs Toolkit Volume 2 project which was funded in November is currently a WIP and will be being released first to the backers and then added to the various stores and continues in the now-familiar format.
The GMs Toolkit Volume 2 content includes
- Unconventional Allies 2
- Yaros Trinkets
- Hirelings and Companions
- Shrines and Temples
- Arcane Masters
- Secret Societies and Cults
- Yaros Trinkets
Whats coming next?
The plan is to continue with the GMs Toolkit content – each time we run a campaign we will offer the option to either buy the content for the current project only or for all of the preceding Kickstarter campaigns AND the current project.
Please note that backing and supporting the Kickstarter campaigns is a more cost effective way of getting your hands on the content as the PDFs retail for £2.00 each – so to purchase the current collection you would be looking at a cost of £24.00 when compared with the “All in pledge” which would cost £10.00
We will be launching Volume III just as soon as we have completed Volume II – so keep an eye on your inbox for an update or check back here soon.
