I know a lot of people love 5th Edition, but my heart will always be with 3.5th Edition. If someone’s down for a game, it’s the system I prefer. And, thankfully, I’m not alone. There’s still new material coming out that’s designed to work within that system. For example, there’s On the Shoulders of Heroes, a new fantasy RPG setting, incorporating classic Tolkien-esque motifs, but also bringing in influences from German and Japanese folklore. The campaign book is up on Kickstarter now.
From the Kickstarter:
We are Windmill Slam Games, a tiny Dutch company dedicated to writing and producing content to enrich your roleplaying experience. You have found our very first project on Kickstarter: The On the Shoulder of Heroes campaign setting. On The Shoulders of Heroes is intended for use with the 3.5 edition of the world’s most popular roleplaying game and systems based on it, but due to its informative nature it could easily be used with any fantasy RPG-system. It is inspired by old school roleplaying games, traditional fantasy, Germanic and Japanese mythology. It is based on the idea that the world was built by the great deeds of great people – both good and evil.
The campaign is up and running now. It’s set to go for another 28 days.
