The Satanic Panic of the 80s is... mostly... over with. Now, going on an adventure in your D&D game for the Lord is cool. Or, so says Red Panda Publishing with their The Adventurer's Guide to The Bible RPG supplement for 5th edition that's up on Kickstarter now.
From the campaign:
This project began as a simple effort to convert locations, characters, and monsters from the Bible into fifth edition stats for a personal home game. However, during this process we realized just how widespread the appeal of role-playing games was among youth groups and Bible studies that we talked to. Not only were Bible-enthusiasts playing, many of their Game Masters were struggling with the same difficult task we were: how do you run a game that is both true to the source material and fun to play? This question led us down a road filled with conversations, game design, and research that eventually yielded 350 pages of content. Our goal was not merely to present a list of people and places as they appeared in the Bible, but to create a unique adventure experience that brings the fun and spontaneity of 5E into the narrative of biblical storytelling. What we created was the Adventurer's Guide to the Bible.
The campaign's on its way to 5x funded with 25 days left to go.
