What’s Next from Dread Unicorn Games?   Dread Unicorn Logo

You should always be able to see what’s for sale here: https://dreadunicorngames.com/shop-for-games/

  • Right now we are working on The Gods Have Spoken, a 5E supplement full of gods, creatures, factions, magic, and more. If you missed the Kickstarter it should be available for sale soon. https://dreadunicorngames.com/games/the-gods-have-spoken/
  • Our 5E intro adventure that shows off The Gods Have Spoken is The Gray World. This one-shot is the perfect tool to introduce players and GMs to our new content. https://dreadunicorngames.com/games/the-gray-world/
  • Part of The Gods Have Spoken Kickstarter is the Gods and Icons Upgrade Pack for the 13th Age Roleplaying Game. More divine art and creatures that tie in with the gods. As writers roll off of The Gods Have Spoken, some will roll onto the Upgrade Pack.
  • Then we have That’s How the Light Gets in, a Numenera adventure for all tiers. The Sun Below is failing, and it’s up to the players to get it back on line. Which involves visiting more than a few dimensions. https://dreadunicorngames.com/games/thats-how-the-light-gets-in/
  • After that will be an adventure (name TBD) in two versions. One for 5E, and one for 13th This will be the start of a number of linked adventures. One link between these adventures is intrigue. If you can’t win a straight up fight with everyone, you’ll need to win some allies and maybe run a few con games. This will be Kickstarted, so watch for it!

Happy New Year from Dread Unicorn Games!!!

Dread Unicorn Games in 2016

Are you going to OrcaCon? I am, please say hi! I’ll be running a few 13th Age games for Fire Opal and attending as much gaming goodness as I can.

Our first products are sister titles: Gods and Icons for 13th Age and The Gods Have Spoken: Deities and Domains for 5E. Why two? It turns out most of the writing and art will work in both products, so why not?

Here’s where we are now with Gods and Icons and The Gods Have Spoken:

  • The writing is 75.09% done (+ or -). Vanessa has done a great job with three pantheons, and I’m excited to plug in their relationship to the icons for Gods and Icons. There will be holy swords for paladins and religious items for all the divine classes.
  • I’ve been playtesting Gods and Icons for a few months now. Soon I’ll give it to the real playtesters to try out.
  • We’re going to Kickstart the gods! You’ll be able to pick either or both titles as your rewards.
  • Since this is our first kickstarter, we’re going to be cautious. We don’t want to promise what we can’t deliver! For example, we’re not going to do our own printing and shipping. For physical copies, we’ll use Drive Thru’s Print on Demand and let them do the shipping.
  • But we will have lots of great stretch goals: more content and more art!
  • Speaking of art, we have a great cover artist! Justin Wyatt has agreed to do our cover art, which will include three gods and three icons. Yay! Gaming art fans will recognize Justin from The Sun Below: City on the Edge where he did interior art and The Sun Below: Sleeping Lady, where he did the amazing cover and interior art.
  • Some of Justin’s work:

The Sun Below: Sleeping Lady; Numenera adventure; Dread Unicorn Games

Throne Room from The Sun Below: City on the Edge adventure for Numenera
From The Sun Below: City on the Edge

After the Kickstarter, our next title will be a return to Numenera with another adventure: The Sun Below: That’s How the Light Gets In. There the players will confront what happens to the underground world when The Sun Below starts to fail!

After that? We’re not telling! There is so much going on in roleplaying right now. We’ve got a lot of great ideas, but first, let’s get these three products out the door.

Happy New Year!
