The Forbidden Library Adventure and Sourcebook Up On Kickstarter

For all you bibliophiles in the audience, there's a new adventure and sourcebook up on Kickstarter for 5th edition D&D. It's called Tales and Tomes from the Forbidden Library. I've already had one author friend who I sent the link to go, "ooooooh!" in response. If you're a fan of books and want to bring that love to your character, this is your chance.

From the campaign:

Originally presented to authors in the Gen Con Writers Symposium as a series of adventures in front of a live audience, Tales and Tomes from the Forbidden Library is a fully compatible D&D 5E adventure for character levels 1-3, written by speculative fiction author Gregory A. Wilson. The adventure leads characters into the Eastern Wing of Hearthglow Academy's Library- where they will discover why it has been forbidden to students and teachers for twenty years. 

But Tales and Tomes is not only a three part adventure which can be placed in any 5E compatible setting; it is also a sourcebook, with prominent SFF authors and tabletop gaming professionals lending their talents to describe various books which can be found within the library - from grimoires of spells to weaponry manuals, from atlases of vanished lands to bestiaries cataloging legendary fauna, to fragments of lore, poetry, and art - and everything in between. 

Published by Alligator Alley Entertainment, Ennie-nominated publisher of Witch Hunter 2nd Edition and Esper Genesis, and featuring beautiful cover art by Sarah Dahlinger in both high quality print and PDF editions, Tales and Tomes from the Forbidden Library brings together mysterious creatures, a vibrant setting, and a compelling story into an adventure which DMs will love to run and players will love to play - and a sourcebook which will help enhance many future adventures as well. Jump on board with us and pledge today - then, please spread the word. And thanks!

The campaign's about 1/3 of the way to its goal with still 29 days left to go.
