10/29/23 – The time has come! We launched The Mayor of Mayville Kickstarter campaign! We’re extremely excited to be working with artist Isaac Benge on the art for this one shot and with the campaign funding we’ll be able to put a whole bunch of art into this adventure.
Some fun tier advantages:
- Playtest with us! We have two different tiers where you can join the game and we’ll run it for you. If you are a DM and interested in playtesting yourself, let us know!
- Booklets. We’ve got a local printer we’ll be working with on booklets of the adventure in 8.5×11 format.
- Voting power on our NPCs. If you’ve been with us for a while, you know we’ve got a ton of NPC ideas and we want you to decide which ones make it, get their own art, and get VTT tokens.
We have no idea how this will go, but we’re excited regardless and looking forward to producing an awesome adventure for you!
DnD Creator Spotlight
DM Resource: Eating the Dungeon is in the same zany lane as our encounters and we had a good chuckle when we found the recipes. With recipes that likely work in real life, the author goes through 14 recipes (at the time of this writing) of all the different ways to prep, season, and cook various DnD monsters, including Flail Snails and Gelatinous Cubes. A fun read for you!
Artist: We mentioned him above, but we’re working on The Mayor of Mayville with artist Isaac Benge (@obsidianthehoax). His overall style and especially the derpier looks caught our attention and after we chatted knew it was going to be a great fit. Looking forward to all of the art for the adventure.
Podcast: Save The D8 “is a realplay RPG podcast where YOU can shape our crew’s story!” Their campaign Epoch is 72 episodes in and the group is a blast to listen to. Give them a shot and you may even hear some of our encounters in there at some point!
Have other creators we should feature? Let us know
- Trunky Brewster – A Loxodon Artificer that mostly makes trunks and luggage, but has been known to get into trouble with a few of their inventions. Some of the inventions are contraptions that attach to the luggage itself, making travel much easier.
