Another Stretch Goal Unlocked!
about 1 year ago – Tue, Feb 07, 2023 at 07:54:53 AM

We keep on knocking out those stretch goals!
 This morning we have unlocked a 2nd adventure for the Core Rulebook! It's called Miroq Festival by Alice Rendell.
That brings us up to four ready-to-go adventures when the book releases!
Here are all the adventure titles and their authors so far:
· Stress Fractures by Hiromi Cota - appearing in the Free Quickstarter
· False Season by Eugenio Vargas - appearing in the Core Rulebook
· Ruin-Under by Nell Raban - appearing in the Game Moderator's Kit
· Miroq Festival by Alice Rendell - a second adventure in the Core Rulebook!

 Our next stretch goal is already in sight! At $150,000, we will produce a PDF booklet that guides you through making your Comm and tracking it over time. If your pledge includes any edition of The Fifth Season RPG, the Comm Creation Folio will be included in your rewards for free.
Stay tuned, we have more surprises and updates on the way!

Stretch Goal Unlocked! Comms of the Stillness
about 1 year ago – Sat, Feb 04, 2023 at 04:48:45 PM

We have unlocked another stretch goal!

Any pledge that includes a copy of the rulebook, will now receive a short PDF that details 8 ready-made comms that can be used as neighbors, allies, or rivals of the Player Characters' comm.

Next week we'll start rolling out a series of articles as updates to the campaign (as well as posting to our blog at, that will talk about some things that were left out of the Quickstart PDF, but are key elements of the rulebook, such as Comm/Character creation, game play, and even when your games are likely to take place with regards to the events of the novels. 

Thanks again for helping us make this campaign such a success!

Stretch Goal Unlocked! A New Adventure for the GM Kit!
about 1 year ago – Mon, Jan 30, 2023 at 11:10:24 AM

That's THREE Adventures available from the start! (Core Rulebook, GM Kit and the Quickstart)

We'll have another update soon with the next stretch goal! Thank you so much, everyone!

New Stretch Goal! An Adventure for the Game Moderator's Kit!
about 1 year ago – Thu, Jan 26, 2023 at 01:35:12 PM

At $120,000, we will add a complete adventure to the GM's Kit. This will let GMs start with three adventures at their disposal (one in the rulebook, one in the Quickstart, and one in the GM's Kit).

As a reminder, if you'd like to increase your pledge amount to have the funds available in the pledge manager to add the GM Kit, you can go to your user profile HERE, and adjust your pledge. This will help us unlock more stretch goals, but if you'd prefer to wait until after the campaign is over, you can do that too.

Game Moderator's Kit Unlocked!
about 1 year ago – Thu, Jan 26, 2023 at 10:40:16 AM

Earlier this morning, we blew through our second stretch goal, and unlocked the GM Kit!

This campaign so far has surpassed our expectations (and then some!) so we're still working on the next stretch goal but should have that up later today.

For now, check out this mock-up for the Game Moderator's Kit that our production team put together for us!
