Hey! I've written and released a kickstarter called Pirate World, an RPG sourcebook for Dungeon World. It was 100% funded on the first day by lovely people all over the internet, and I'm sure some of them must be lurking here, so thankyou! It's really hard to find everyone and thank them.

I didn't actually post it here when I launched it last week! I'm only one guy, so I'm slowly getting around the web. I quite often take part in PBP games on the SomethingAwful forums, and run them too, and it was running one there all about pirates that made me realise I wanted to turn it into an awesome book. It's happening! I've got a couple of artists and the kickstarter is just going amazingly well.

There's a bit in it I reckon you guys might really like, based around playing RPGs via PBP (or on your lunch break) called Luncheon World, aimed at streamlining Dungeon World to play more smoothly online, but I reckon it'd help with quite a few RPGs in general. Here's how the kickstarter looks:

Pirate World is a huge sourcebook for the Dungeon World and Fate Core rpgs, with everything you need for a swashbuckling adventure. The book is filled to the brim with monsters, classes, pirates, crazy ships, traps, and just so much!. Back it and get the playbooks RIGHT NOW!

It is so much more than just pirates! Chapters in the book:
* HIRELING OVERHAUL : a new change of direction that makes every hireling unique with their own custom moves
* BACKGROUNDS : customise your character from level 1 and develop them onwards!
* LUNCHEON WORLD : play Dungeon World with a sandwich in your hands in 30 mins, or over the internet.
* tons of beautiful, full page illustrations (in colour too!). It's worth it for the art alone.
* PLAYBOOKS: 7 completely new playbooks and one 5* rated

The beautiful art is from two wonderful artists, Joseph Irizarry and Jonathan Choby:

It’s been incredibly successful so far, getting fully funded in just one day! Here’s what we’re aiming for with the extra funding:

I am SO excited to see copies of this printed and delivered, and if you've got any questions, let me know!
