As I said recently, I'm a big fan of anthropomorphic animals in fantasy RPGs, but my heart really belongs to ducks - being a Howard fan from way back.
Therefore, long time readers of HeroPress may remember my fondness for the growing range of duck characters coming out of New Zealand, courtesy of Darcy Perry and Star Hat Miniatures.
I'm delighted to report that he has just launched a quacking new Kickstarter for yet more incredible figures: Star Hat Miniatures for DuckQuest Fantasy Role Playing Games.
On the Kickstarter page, Darcy announces:
"Time to explore Duckwyrld... where four valiant Heroes of Quackmoor have been summoned by Mandrake, founder of the Guild of Delvers, to do battle with the nefarious Mordux and his evil minions. Seated upon the legendary Throne of Bones, the power of the Duck Lord grows with each passing night. You must boldly descend into the darkest dungeons of Castle Greyduck, defeat the Champions of Chaos and end the wicked rule of Mordux!"As well as ducks, this Kickstarter offers crows, turtles, and mushroom men to keep your players on their toes.
You can see pictures of all these on the Kickstarter page.
Check out the site for the numerous investor incentive levels - which include options to get your own character immortalised by Darcy and pick up the Jennell Jaquays module, Quack Keep - as well as learning about shipping costs, stretch goals etc
The campaign runs until September 20.
