Modern Adventures Kickstarter Grows Near

The Kickstarter for Pathfinder: Modern Adventures is set to launch September 1, 2017 and I’m extremely excited for the game to launch into the hands of tabletop rpg players! If you’re just now hearing about this game, Modern Adventures is a Pathfinder game based in real-world Earth, with a twist. The setting considers magic, monsters and even the normal Pathfinder races (and then some!) as having been parts of the world from the get go. Each race took specific parts in major world events, and have their own place in modern culture.

Modern Adventures also takes a unique, modern stance on old, well-known adventures. Currently in development are adventures like “Excavation of the Tomb of Horrors” where, as the title says, the Tomb Of Horrors is accidentally discovered and excavated, much to the dismay (and demise) of those who were studying the site. “Under the City” brings back a scene not unlike Undermountain in the state of Louisiana for players to delve and explore.

We have an array of books on the horizon for Modern Adventures, including:

  • Modern Adventures
  • Modern Adventures: Player’s Option
  • Modern Adventures: Game Mastery
  • Excavation of the Tomb of Horrors Adventure Module
  • Under the City Adventure Module
  • Player’s Guide to the Half-Bloods
  • Conspiracies
  • Fringe Technologies

The Kickstarter launches September 1st so make sure to check it out!

Stewart Wieck has passed.

My condolences to friends and family of a man who was quickly becoming a friend and mentor. A sad day when you’re mourning the loss of a childhood hero; a titan of my youth who helped shape my writing ability and gaming expertise. Worse, when you mourn a friend, no matter how long you’ve known him. Today will be spent reading his books and playing his games. I hope you guys can take a moment today to remember a man who helped create a legend in tabletop gaming.

Yesterday my brother Stewart Wieck died. He had just finished a light fencing workout and then fell over. All attempts to resuscitate him failed. It’s still unknown what caused it; we’ll know more in a few days. Something catastrophic in his heart perhaps.

I was supposed to grow old drinking and gaming with him. Now that will have to wait for heaven or Valhalla or whatever comes next.

And of course, leave it to Stewart to die with a sword in his hand.

No need for flowers, no memorial service has been arranged yet, we’re just taking things a step at a time.

Anyone involved with Stewart’s publishing projects feel free to reach out to me in a few weeks.
