Funded in a couple of hours, On Downtime and Demesnes has been doing gangbusters on Kickstarter and getting a metric ton of positive coverage from all the cool kids of the OSR.
It's the first Kickstarter from Courtney Campbell, of the Hack & Slash blog, and is a book of "downtime activities" to encourage your players to become more involved in your sandbox-style campaign world.
On the Kickstarter page, Courtney writes:
"Do you sometimes wish you didn't have to put in so much effort into engaging your players? Wouldn't it be nice if they couldn't wait to play around in your world? If they were pushing you to spend more time in the land you create?He goes on to explain:
That's why I developed these downtime procedures over decades of play and now I can share it with you!"
"No longer will your players wonder what their characters should do with all their gold. It includes clear, common-sense rules for everything from starting a cult, making sacrifices to gods, to hiring mercenaries and building vehicles and castles."Check out the Kickstarter page for the sundry investor incentives, more details on the book, stretch goals etc
The funding window closes on August 31, so stake your claim now!
