Pirates & Dragons RPG Kickstarter Relaunched

Post by rednblack » Thu Sep 05, 2013 10:26 pm

Cakebread & Walton are pleased to announce the Pirates & Dragons RPG Kickstarter has been relaunched. Please take a look and help spread the word.

Pirates like gold. Dragons like gold. When the terrors of the sea meet the terrors of the sky, there’s bound to be trouble!

They came from Albion, from Gaule and Esbania and Batavia, in search of the treasures of the New World. They found a menace older than mankind – dragons!

In their mountain lairs on the Dragon Isles, giant beasts – old and wise and malevolent – sit on their piles of gold, surrounded by their zombie minions. The natives have found ways of appeasing or evading them – the Dragon Tribes honour them with gold and human sacrifice, the other Islanders use their magic to hide away or resist. The Uropans must rely on gunpowder and cold steel.

And the pirates? The pirates will use whatever comes to hand in their battle with the dragons. Armed with science, sorcery, steel and superstition, they take the fight into the dragons’ lairs in their endless quest for gold.

Pirates & Dragons is a role-playing game of fantasy swashbuckling in a world of magic and treasure, of fantastical islands inhabited by strange beasts and vile necromancers, of treachery and heroism. Together with a group of friends, you take on the role of pirates, out for adventure and booty – raiding the treasure galleons of Esbania, the merchant fleets of Gaule and Batavia, the dragon-hunting ships of Albion, the ruins of lost Adalantas... and the gold-filled caves of ancient and evil dragons.

Gather your crew. Load your flintlocks. And prepare to plunder!

Pirates & Dragons features slick, cinematic game mechanics based on the acclaimed Renaissance D100 system, and is compatible with other D100 systems.

The revised Pirates & Dragons Kickstarter hit its main goal late last night, and is now well on its way to the first stretch goal, an adventure called "The Island of Light and Darkness"!

Thank you to everyone who has pledged so far and/or helped spread the word.

Here's a transcription of last night's IRC chat about the Pirates & Dragons RPG - and there was some lovely timing - the Kickstarter hit its goal just as the session was wrapping up, so we got to celebrate virtually...

There are a couple more updates on the Pirates & Dragons Kickstarter pages. Yesterday we reached our first stretch goal, the introductory adventure The Island of Light and Darknesss. so there's a taster of that, along with the news that we've lowered the print stretch goal for the adventure compilation Tales of Tortuga.
