11 months ago – Wed, Sep 18, 2019 at 01:57:12 AM

Bilious bluejays! You did it! In one day, your support brought Root: The Tabletop Roleplaying Game to $100,000! THAT IS ABSOLUTELY WOODLANDTASTIC!

(YOU WERE WARNED ABOUT THE SILLY WOODLAND JOKES!)

Stretch Goal Unlocked

You did it! You unlocked the GM’s screen! This trifold screen with each panel about 8” x 8” will be a huge boon at your table! Everyone who backs at $20 or more will get a digital version of the GM’s screen, and everyone who gets the Vagabond’s Satchel will automatically get it in a physical form!

Upcoming Stretch Goal

If we can reach $120,000, everyone who pledged at least $20 will get a full PDF version of a brand new playbook—the Pirate! The Pirate is a water-based vagabond, at home on the rivers and bays of the Woodland. The Pirate will join the 6 playbooks available in the core book and the 6 playbooks available in the Travelers & Outsiders expansion to increase your options for vagabond adventure!

Hike Those Woodland Trails!

We had only imagined in our wildest dreams that you all would show us the kind of support you have! We are so grateful and so lucky to have such an awesome group of people pledging to and boosting Root: The Tabletop Roleplaying Game! Thank you so much! Please keep sharing the Kickstarter, and please keep being so brilliant!

11 months ago – Wed, Sep 18, 2019 at 12:22:26 AM

Bouldering badgers! You did it AGAIN! Another two stretch goals unlocked!

Stretch Goals Unlocked

First up, you unlocked Coolclaw Mine, the digital clearing! Now everyone who backed at least $20 will get the full digital version of this pre-made clearing, complete with interesting NPCs and complicated situations!

Next, you unlocked the Redwoods Map! This new version of the Woodland with enormous trees will be available in digital form to everyone who backed at least $20, and in physical form to everyone who gets the Vagabond’s Satchel!

Finally, you yet again unlocked a new stretch goal we didn’t get a chance to introduce—a pair of Woodland Alliance dice! These green dice, featuring a rebel rabbit’s face, will automatically be added to the Vagabond’s Satchel!

You all are, frankly, INCREDIBLE! Thank you so much!

Upcoming Stretch Goal

Next up—if we can reach $100,000, we’ll be making a GM’s screen for Root: The Tabletop Roleplaying Game! This GM’s screen will be a trifold screen that measures roughly 8" x 8" when folded (so fully unfolded, it’s 24” long). It will feature more beautiful art, and plenty of tools, tables, and resources to aid in running and playing the game! What’s more, we’ll be automatically adding the GM’s screen to the Vagabond’s Satchel, so everyone who is getting the Satchel will get the screen if we can reach this goal! We’ll also be making it an add-on available to attach to your pledge.

Let Rivers Echo With Your Cries!

This entire first day has been beyond our hopes and dreams. Thank you all so much for expressing your support of Root: The TTRPG so loudly, and for making all of this possible! As always, please keep sharing the Kickstarter out, and please keep being absolutely amazing!

Two Stretch Goals Unlocked!
11 months ago – Tue, Sep 17, 2019 at 10:44:06 PM

Galloping rabbitfolk! This is unbelievable! Two more stretch goals knocked out and we’re not even through the morning!

Stretch Goals Unlocked!

Wooooeee! The first two stretch goals are both knocked out! You all are awesome!

Hookfoot Bog and Sixclaw’s Standing will both be released as digital products, available for everyone who backed $20 or higher! Both will provide you with a full, ready-to-run clearing—kind of like an adventure, but with a greater emphasis on a tense situation that could boil over in any number of ways, depending upon how the vagabonds decide to push the plot.

And now, we’re going to announce our next stretch goal…

New Stretch Goal

If we reach $40,000, we’ll release a new map—The Swampland Map—available as a digital product and included physically in the Vagabond’s Satchel! This time, the map will provide a swampy version of the Woodlands for you to flesh out for your campaign! The physical map will be the same form factor as the other maps, a laminated 8.5" x 11" sheet, and will automatically be added to the pledge of everyone getting the Vagabond’s Satchel!

Each map is designed to expand the opportunities for the start of your campaign, and if you want to expand the focus of your existing campaign to additional parts of the Woodland!

Let the Woodland Horns Blow!

We cannot thank you enough for your incredible outpouring of support! We’re so excited to have achieved our goal and unlocked two stretch goals already! Please keep sharing the Kickstarter and letting people know, and keep being so awesome!

$50,000 Stretch Goal Unlocked!
11 months ago – Tue, Sep 17, 2019 at 10:44:02 PM

Calamitous cats! We’ve reached $50,000 within 4 hours thanks to your amazing support!

Stretch Goals Unlocked

You’ve unlocked another two stretch goals—one we didn’t even have time to introduce!

Firstly, you unlocked the Swampland Map! Everyone who has backed for at least $20 will get a digital PDF of the map, and everyone who gets the Vagabond’s Satchel will get a physical copy as well!

Secondly, you unlocked the Eyrie Dynasties dice! This is a new pair of regal blue dice featuring the face of a bluejay, and they’ll be automatically added to the Vagabond’s Satchel!

Next up…

Upcoming Stretch Goals

If we reach $60,000, we’ll unlock a new digital clearing—Limmery Post! Limmery Post was developed from an outpost on the farthest edges of an old empire. The Post was meant to be a boundary that outsiders would have to cross through before reaching the rest of the Woodland, and its rabbit denizens have inherited some of that xenophobia. But the Post remains a well-fortified clearing, perfect for a new Woodland Alliance base—and maybe, with the help of some enterprising vagabonds, the Alliance’s leaders can convince the denizens of Limmery to side with them… This clearing will be available as a PDF for everyone who backs at the $20 level or higher!

Fill the Branches with Birdsong!

We cannot express how absolutely amazing this day has been, thanks to all of you! Your support makes all of this possible, and we’re ready and raring to work on getting these books into your hands! Please keep sharing the Kickstarter wherever you can, and keep your ears perked for more cool announcements coming over bird-post!

$70,000 Reached - Two Stretch Goals Unlocked!
11 months ago – Tue, Sep 17, 2019 at 10:44:01 PM

Raving raccoons! You’re knocking out our stretch goals faster than we can post them!

Stretch Goals Unlocked

First up, you unlocked the Limmery Post digital clearing! Everyone who backs for at least $20 will get the full PDF of this pre-made clearing to provide an easy one-shot session, or to help out GMs who just need a clearing ready to go!

Second up, you unlocked the Coolclaw Mine digital clearing! We didn’t get to introduce this to you! Here’s a description: Coolclaw Mine is a clearing sprung up around the profitable iron mine that dips under the nearby mountains. Coolclaw Mine is one of the Woodland’s most successful and lucrative mines, so it’s no wonder the Marquisate sent a whole platoon of soldiers there almost immediately. But the Eyrie Dynasties know its value, too, and are poised to launch an attack to take it back. The denizens of Coolclaw are about to be caught in the crossfire of a real battle, and they can’t agree on what to do!

Coolclaw Mine is now unlocked and available to everyone who backed at least $20!

Upcoming Stretch Goals

If we reach $80,000, we’ll unlock the Redwoods Map—a new map, both in digital form and physically added to the Vagabond’s Satchel! This time, the map will provide a version of the Woodland dominated by enormous, gigantic trees for you to flesh out for your campaign! The physical map will be the same form factor as the other maps, a laminated 8.5” x 11” sheet, and will automatically be added to the pledge of everyone getting the Vagabond’s Satchel!
