Fellowship 2nd Edition and 2 New Books Up On Kickstarter

The folks behind Fellowship are looking to expand. But it's more than just expanding, they're going back to the roots and doing a bit of tweaking as well. There's a Kickstarter campaign up for a new Fellowship core book with updated rules, but you can also pick up Inverse Fellowship and A Fellowship in Rebellion, books 2 and 3 of the series.

From the campaign:

Fellowship first arrived on Kickstarter in September 2015, and funded with over 400% of its goal. Now we're back, with more to offer you than ever before! This project is funding two additional books: Book 2 Inverse Fellowship, and Book 3 A Fellowship In Rebellion.

Fellowship is a game about going on an adventure, in the same vein as Lord of the Rings or Wakfu or The Legend of Zelda.  The system is loosely based on the Apocalypse Engine, but the game does not feature the typical Game Master that many other tabletop games do. Instead, one player is the Overlord, a maniacal being who has become a Threat to the World, and everyone else forms a fellowship of heroes to stop them. The focus of Fellowship is on the journey you take and the communities you meet, and saving the day is what you're here to do.  Fellowship is also famous for its narrative control - each player determines a portion of how the world works, and you work together to create the world you will save.

But if you're one of the folks who has been playing Fellowship for the past 3 years since it came out, you know all that already. So what's in store with this new project?

How about an updated core book, and two new books with 7 new basic playbooks, 2 new Powerful playbooks, the Ship playbook first featured in To Winter's End, and two new alternatives to the Overlord playbook, The Horizon and The Empire?

Not only that, these new books are coming out along with a brand new second edition printing of Fellowship. And this new printing is available RIGHT NOW - as this kickstarter is launching, so too is the 2nd edition book on Drivethru RPG and Anyone who has bought the first edition PDF now immediately has the second edition PDF!

And on top of all that new content, each of the existing mini-expansions (The Giant, The Dragon, The Construct, The Remnant, The Spider, and The Pair) is being reprinted into one of the two new books, so all their useful info and errata is compiled together for your convenience. They are also being updated to comply with the 2nd edition of the rules, where applicable.

The campaign's up and over its funding goal with 23 days left to go.
