Crowd FundingD&D 5e

Masters & Minions for 5e Kickstarter

Usually Michael takes care of the crowdfunding news on Tribality, but this was one I grabbed for myself and I can’t wait to get my hands on a copy!

Masters and Minions doesn’t just provide monster stat block and lore, it provides you with bosses and their minions you can plug right into your adventure for levels 1-20. The team includes people who worked other successful 5e third party books Tome of Beasts and Gods and Goddesses, so you know the content and the artwork will be top notch. This kickstarter is already funded, but if you want to jump on you only have until December 29th, 2017.

Here is some info they sent us…

As game masters, we love 5E, but sometimes we run out of time preparing for a game. If only there was a supplement that had what we needed that would let us drag-and-drop into any campaign, potentially saving hours of game prep time. If only there were some new and exciting content we could offer, and for the proper XP level of the players. Well, fellow GMs, now there is!

What is Masters & Minions?

GMs can often face some challenges before a game and it usually involves prep time. We wanted to create a book that has NEW content to help with that.  The idea with Masters and Minions was to develop some Bosses and their followers, but with a focus on how they use their minions, and provide some tips and strategies that any GM can “drag and drop” into a new or existing game. The new content will span levels 1 – 20, so the book will continue to provide new content as players level up.

Who is this book for?

Any GM, new or experienced, who wishes to add new antagonists and strategies into their games. Any GM who is looking for rich and well sorted content, but does not have a lot of prep time. Any GM who is looking to challenge their players in new ways.

    I’m itching in pledging for the hardcover, but to where I’m hailing the postage costs are the same as the book itself. So, just the PDF for me.

    • Hi Manos, we do have a pledge level with Gods and Goddesses included that saves you a little of the shipping cost, and G&G costs $20 instead of $30. Maybe that will help! Oh by the way I’m with Jetpack7 🙂

      Hey Sara! I was a backer of G&G for the hardcover book (plus PDF) and thus I know. I really like G&G by the way and this makes me to really want the hardcover of M&M as well, but it is out of my current budget to have to pay almost double the book value due to shipping costs.

      So, I’ll go just for the pdf version.

    • Hi again Manos,
      I’m so glad you like G&G! On our next kickstarter as I said before we are looking into EU friendly shipping options and/or just subsidizing shipping ourselves.

      Thanks for your support!
