Countdown to NeoExodus: 40 Days...

We have always planned to do a Kickstarter project with NeoExodus.  But deicding what that project was was always a tough decision.  We have a lot of products that will work well with Kickstarter but it had to be the right project that we thought would also help expand NeoExodus to more people.  So after much debate, we can up with a few that would work very well.

The first project we are working to do with kick started is the NeoExodus Novellas.  These are short stories that we have planned to help expand the world of NeoExodus beyond the RPG campaign setting into the world of ebook and paperback book fantasy fiction.  We have been in talks with Robin Laws to get this on off of the ground.

The second project we plan to use Kickstarter with is our Usual Suspects sourcebook.  Similar to the NPC gallery that you can find in the GameMaster Guide by Paizo, This sourcebook would focus on NPCs for use specifically in your NeoExodus: A House Divided home games.  Nobody likes building NPCs on the fly and with this sourcebook you will no longer have to.

Third and final, we would like to do my personal pet sourcebook for NeoExodus, Xao: Island of Iron and Silk.  I have been working on this project for years behind the scenes.  A homage to the Shaw Brothers Kung Fu flicks of the 70s and 80s influenced by such movies like the Kid with the Golden Arm and Five Deadly Venoms.  While not focusing on 90s influence of wuxia, the Shaw Brothers film are the precursor and the "foundation" to the wuxia genre films in general.  Lots of cool kung fu action for NeoExodus.  Talk to you later...
