The Phylactery OSR RPG Zine Up On Kickstarter

When you're a GM, you want to have stuff readily available to grab at a moment's notice when needed. My last game session, for example, our party took a "right turn" when not expected and the GM had to come up with a quick encounter for us. Thankfully, they had stuff handy. And your GM can too. The Phylactery, an OSR-based RPG zine, is up on Kickstarter now. Inside it, you'll be able to find all sorts of helpful game info.

From the campaign:

In honor of Kickstarter's most excellent  Zinequest 2 , the creative team here at Planet X Games is coming onboard with an all new, original zine that has the heart and feel of the old school heroic fantasy we grew up playing ourselves back in the day.

We go in assuming you already have the core books to play your favorite games and instead jump right into OSR-inspired material that is unavailable anywhere else, giving you an entire cover-to-cover zine devoted strictly to cool new adventures, quirky NPCs, wondrous magical items, marauding  monsters, fell locations, relics from beyond the mists of time and all sorts of heroic fantasy resources for your tabletop games.

As this project launches, The Phylactery is a cover-to-cover 24-page, saddle-stitched, 5.5-inch by 8.5-inch B&W printed zine with a bad ass color cover by Planet X favorite Ed Bickford. This booklet is jam packed with page after page of heroic fantasy adventure influenced heavily by early third party RPG badassery like Dave Hargrave’s infamous  Arduin Grimoire series and the early Dragontree Press stuff. The Phylactery is meant to be a quick and easy resource that you can pull ideas and plot hooks from for use directly at your gaming table. There’s no fluff in here and nothing padding out the page count - just pure old school goodness created exclusively for the fantasy gaming community. We have absolutely JAM-PACKED a ton of RPG goodness in here for you. 

The campaign's making its way to 3x funded with 13 days left to go.
