As the Kickstarter for the Ubiquity-powered Leagues Of Gothic Horror supplement enters its final week, author Paul 'Wiggy' Wade-Williams has unveiled some new stretch goals for the campaign:
"If we reach £9,500 (approx. $14,820) we'll give every backer at Dabbler or above a free 12,000-word Leagues of Gothic Horror PDF adventure written by the highly talented and industry-renowned Walt Ciechanowski.
The Darker Side"If we reach £10,000 (approx $15,600), we'll give every backer at Dabbler or above a free 98-page PDF of pregen characters (no art) and henchmen. Many of these have appeared in other Leagues of Adventure products, but there are plenty of new characters as well, including a quintet of steampunk superheroes. Great for convention games, one-shots, or ready-made NPCs."
Normally, unseemly activities by the gentry are quietly swept under the rug, but when their illicit affairs lead to murder the law can no longer turn a blind eye. Upstanding barrister Sir Reginald Trumball has recently been implicated in the rather disturbing murder of a prostitute and, with no convincing alibi, he has come to the League for help. Can the League help Sir Reginald clear his name, even when it's revealed that he's not quite as clean as he seems?
Written primarily as a sourcebook for Triple Ace Games' Leagues of Adventure RPG, the beauty of the Ubiquity system is that the material contained within Leagues Of Gothic Horror can easily be slotted into any other Ubiquity game (such as Hollow Earth Expedition, Space: 1889 and the upcoming Quantum Black... of which more later).
If you haven't yet backed the Leagues Of Gothic Horror Kickstarter, the window for investment closes at 8am on Monday, August 3.
