Telltale RPG Campaign Setting Up On Kickstarter

There's a lot of fairy tales out there. You've probably read dozens. With Telltale, a new 5th edition D&D setting that's up on Kickstarter now, you can head on into those tales and actually put your mark on the story yourself.

From the campaign:

Welcome to Tellatale! Tellatale is a new, complete campaign setting for the fifth edition (5E) for that game with the dragons and dungeons in it. It includes many new character races, class variants, and more.

Tellatale is a world created during an event called the Grand Conjunction. This event fused together a number of disparate fairy tale worlds causing havoc for the transported beings, and creating strife between the new neighbors. 

Each Zone is ruled by a Hierarch, a being of extreme power. Shortly after the Conjunction, the Hierarchs each attempted to expand their territories while defending themselves from invasion. 

They are currently in an uneasy détente in the wake of the continent spanning Great War, but they are constantly scheming against each other in an effort to become the most powerful Zone. 

Players in Tellatale often take on the roles of spies or mercenaries working for, or against, specific Hierarchs. Of course, nothing is stopping them from trying to amass enough power to replace one of the Hierarchs and take a Zone for themselves...

Alternatively, you can just pick your favorite Zone, and never leave. Each Zone can easily be a complete campaign setting by itself.

The campaign's coming up on 2/3 funded with 26 days left to go.
