Seas of Vodari (Swashbuckling & Sorcery for D&D 5e) Kickstarter is Live
It’s finally time to set sail to Vodari! Our Seas of Vodari Kickstarter campaign is now live (as of Wednesday, March 13th, 2019 at 2pm EDT) and will run for 30 days. We’re really hoping that you can back this project and help get the word out too. We need your help to be able to offer hardcover printing and to add even more character art, digital landscape paintings, maps, and more to the book.
What is the Seas of Vodari?
The Seas of Vodari is a full color book that we are offering in hardcover and PDF. This book provides 200+ pages of material for gamemasters to run exciting seafaring campaigns for 5th Edition. Your players will get tons of options for creating characters and you’ll get support to run a world full of swashbuckling action and magical adventure.
The World of Vodari
Long ago, a vast continent was annihilated and all but the outer edge of the continent sank to the bottom of the sea. The devastation left only a scattered few to start rebuilding their civilization on a ring of islands…
The Seas of Vodari campaign setting contains all of the iconic things you’d expect in a fantasy setting, but in a world with more water than land, much of the familiar becomes surprising and new.
- Dungeons can be found deep below the surface of the sea in the form of shipwrecks and lost cities.
- The most dangerous monsters are found below the waves, such as sea dragons, megalodons and krakens.
- Nature becomes as deadly as the most powerful monsters with furious hurricanes, catastrophic tsunamis, and fiery volcanoes.
Islands are modular by nature and the book was designed for you to use as a detailed setting or to pick and choose what you like for your own game world.
The Seas of Vodari campaign setting was created to support seafaring adventures that focus on the crew of a ship hunting sea monsters, exploring mysterious uncharted islands, visiting bustling port cities, following maps to find buried treasure, and battling cutthroat pirates. The setting is also well suited to running campaigns in its large port cities, with swashbuckling heroes getting mixed up with fierce rivals, notorious crime syndicates, feuding nobles, and scheming politicians.
