Shroud of the Ancients


From the post:

Check out Part 1 of Matt Snodgrass's deep dive review into Shroud of Ancients from Dark Tavern Press.

Dark Tavern Press started out an Indiegogo campaign in order to fund their new RPG, The Shroud of the Ancients.

From the campaign:

Shroud of the Ancients is a fantasy roleplaying game is set in a post-cataclysmic dystopia where your character lives in the sanctuary known as Aegis; a place where hard-working citizens are often the pawns of political and religious power struggles. A brave few stand up to the corruption they encounter, while others play along, hoping to prosper and endure. Meanwhile, the devastated world outside, which the scholars refer to as Terrath, holds the promise of independence, but at the expense of security. In truth, it is said that only the most experienced souls have a chance to survive the perilous shroud that now cloaks the world.

Shroud of the Ancients has put up a Kickstarter project to get funding for their Guide to Terrath Adventurer's Book.

From the campaign:

Created by Randy Miller and Roderick Edwards, this corebook is the product of more than 15 years of combined adventure writing and game design experience. It is Dark Tavern’s goal to continually create the best quality RPGs and gaming accessories possible. It is our aspiration to entice tabletop gamers enough with this project to help us fund this project in order to bring the Shroud of the Ancients D5 Role Playing Game to players everywhere.

Dark Tavern Press has started up their Kickstarter campaign for "The Shroud of the Ancients" Adventurer's Guide to Terrath.

From the campaign:

Fans have been eagerly awaiting the full release of the Shroud of the Ancients D5 RPG: Adventurer's Guide to Terrath. While the tabletop fantasy adventure game has gone through many iterations since its inception, it is now nearly ready for an official release.

Every person that pledges ten dollars or more will receive something in return, from a digital copy of the game to larger rewards for higher pledges, including a signed hardcover of the release, a full set of D5 dice, and custom created artwork.
