Empire of the Ghouls 5th Edition Campaign Up On Kickstarter

The undead. You'd think they'd be happy with just being "alive" forever. But that's rarely the case. They are constantly looking to harass and mess with the living. They're not alive and they're not good. They're... evil dead, if you will. Of course, that means that an adventuring group needs to go deal with them. And that's just what you have in the Empire of the Ghouls campaign for Dungeons & Dragons that's up on Kickstarter now.

From the campaign:

A few torches, and a mountain of courage. That's all it takes to go down into the lands of endless darkness.

This project delivers a full 5th Edition campaign of dark fantasy adventure. It begins with undead plagues upon the surface, and then sends the heroes into the Underworld. Into the hungering dark.

Allied with vampires, the darakhul of the Ghoul Imperium turn their attention to the surface. Emperor Nicoforus the Pale remains wary of further expansion, but others are not satisfied with  caution. These ghouls have set plans in motion to gain further control of the surface world and spread their dark religion across the land. 

This project delivers a full adventure from levels 1 to 13 that begins with stirrings of ghoul trouble in Zobeck and eventually sends heroes into the Underworld to confront the leaders of the ghoul uprising. And it doesn't stint on the dangers of the Underworld: purple worms, bone collectives, kobold tinkers, otyughs, the derro and their strange madness, and, of course, the ghouls with their baronies and armies, implacable and alien and utterly without pity. 

The campaign's closing in on 4x funded with 24 days left to go.
