Look, there's nothing wrong with "new fangled," but I have to admit, I'm a bit more of an "old school" kinda bear. And it's that old school feel that you get in The Chronicles of Aeres, a new campaign setting guide for D&D that's up on Kickstarter now. It's contemporary writing with a nostalgic feel.
From the campaign:
Aeres is a new setting for your adventurous 5th Edition campaign. The Chronicles of Aeres, the title of the handbook, represent the histories, mythologies, heroes, villains, and struggles of this mystical realm, the details of which we're working diligently to bring to life. Aeres is filled to the brim with nostalgia, and its sensibilities are decidedly old school. It's a land that hearkens back to a classical age of fantasy—an age of larger-than-life heroes, true, but also a time when hapless farmhands and folksy Hobbits were coaxed into adventure by wizards, prophecies, and promises of magical treasure. For those who seek their fortune in this realm, the result is often peril and adventure—but just as often magic and charm.
The campaign's about halfway to its goal with 26 days left to go.
