Our FAL Kickstarter project was a smashing success with 160 backers and nearly 14k raised.
Thanks to all of our backers for making this happen. You all are awesome and we sincerely thank you.
Now, it is up to us to get the rewards out and delivered in a timely fashion. My goal is to get the final formatting done this week. This the setup for hardcover and paperback versions of the books. I am also getting the indices in order finalizing pdfs this week. We will do a final proofread of all content in the coming week or so. I want to have the files uploaded to the printer and ready for proof orders once the Kickstarter processing of funds completes.
The extended timeline consists of doing a print proof of all 10 books. This will take a bit of time as there are around 1600+ pages to look at. Hopefully we will only have to do a single print proof.
We will of course keep everyone notified as work commences.
Finally, I have a new version of the Quick Start Rules that should be getting uploaded this week. It reflects changes to the core rules and while these changes (in the QSR) aren't huge, they are accurate as to changes in the new books.
Okay. Back to work! Have a great week.
So, less than a week remains in the Far Away Land Kickstarter. We've got over 100 backers and have shattered our original goal! We hope you will come and join us and get in on the action of the expanding FAL Universe.
Come and join us!
I can't believe we are already at the halfway point in this project. We are nearly 500% funded with nearly 90 backers. We want to thank all of you who have backed this project and as a way of doing this, we are offering stretch goals.
Initially, I didn't want to do stretch goals. I felt like trying to create more content with five books would make things more complicated than I wanted and perhaps delay the project should something arise (and I really never want to be featured at Tenkar's Tavern as a wayward Kickstarter). So, instead of content, we are offering backers the chance at stretch goals that unlock additional pdf books they can give to friends as gifts.
I have always wanted Far Away Land to be accessible to as many people as possible. I want people reading it and playing and enjoying it. I hope these stretch goals will allow folks to share Far Away Land with their friends. Plus, everyone likes presents :)
Details on the stretch goals are below and on the FAL Kickstarter page...
We are off to a great start for the Far Away Land RPG Kickstarter. We met our goal in less than an hour and we are close to $7k with nearly 80 backers!

I would also like to thank all of those who have already backed this project. You are all awesome! We are looking forward to getting these new Far Away Land books into everyone's hands.

The Far Away Land Kickstarter has launched and we are inviting you to be a part of it. This new project greatly expands the world of Far Away Land. 4 new books: Creatures Vol. 2, Creatures Vol. 3, Adventure Awesome, and Seas of Far Away Land bring new rules, locations, encounters, treasure, and adventure to the FALRPG. The Revised Tome of Awesome is also available with rule clarifications, new artwork, non-human PC rules, revised creature sections that features loot drop ideas and size comparison silhouettes, new maps, and more.
We have structured the reward tiers to welcome new folks while also allowing levels for those who already have the Tome of Awesome.
This is a huge project. A lot of work has gone into it. I am exceedingly excited to see Far Away Land expanded.
I hope you will join us and make this happen!
The Far Away Land RPG Kickstarter launches 2.26.2018!
Come and join us!
We are nearing final completion on Seas of Far Away Land. Originally, the book was to be about 100 pages. The final version will be about 160+ pages as we have a added a ton of content and artwork. The book contains...
The book will be released via Kickstarter alongside Creatures Vol. 2, Creatures Vol. 3, Adventure Awesome, and the revised Tome of Awesome. Five books. 800+ pages of FAL gaming goodness. We hope you will join us. You can sign up for updates on our landing page at www.faruniverse.com
The Far Away Land RPG Kickstarter is scheduled to launch toward the end of February 2018. With that being said, there is a lot to do on our end as we move closer to the release of this project. This is a massive undertaking for us as the content includes over 700+ pages and over 600+ pieces of art. Four of the books are completed with the fifth in a final production phase. It has been all consuming for me. Far Away Land is my world and I have tried to pour as much awesomeness into it as possible.
In the coming weeks we will be releasing information about each of the five books being released. We will give a breakdown of each book, what it contains, and show off some of the artwork.
We will also be running several contests to generate buzz about the project and get folks interested. These contests will offer the new books as prizes for those who win.
I am incredibly excited to release this new material. It is the start of the expanded FAL Universe, an immensely huge and rich universe of history, characters, gods, demons, wars, planes of existence, and stories that have never been told. It is a unique fantasy universe that I feel brings something new to the tabletop gaming world. It is a kitchen sink sort of setting, sandboxy and open, a playground for your imagination. That is the goal anyway. I have also spent loads of time creating the foundation for what is to come in this universe, to make sure things fit, to make it unique, to make sure its entertaining, interesting and most of all, fun.
The Far Away Land RPG Kickstarter will launch in late February of 2018. This new project has been several years in the making and features the revised core rules which is called the Tome of Awesome plus four brand new books: Creatures Vol. 2, Creatures Vol. 3, Adventure Awesome, and Seas of Far Away Land.
The entirety of these books brings over 700 pages of content to the FAL Universe. Included in this new content are over 300 new creatures, rules for creating constructs and golems, ship building, naval combat, tons of adventures, hundreds of full-color images, loads of fluff and background information to further expand the gonzo bizarreness that is Far Away Land, and and insane amount more (which we will be talking about in future updates).
We hope you will join us as we launch the Kickstarter. We will have the books available as pdf, paperback, and hardback. Each one is a quirky, beautiful piece of a world that is begging to be explored.
