All-new, unique magic items for EACH of the 12 core classes of the world's most popular role-playing game - with all original artwork!

Latest Updates from Our Project:

Missed deadlines, no worries!
24 days ago – Fri, Jan 03, 2020 at 12:22:01 AM

Just a quick update until I can get you all something better, I have been making an emergency move across the country and settling in with my internet only being set up today! That said we are behind schedule because mostly of me, during the move it was decided that I would be going full time on Session Zero Games so that I could provide better products at a faster rate than was possible in our last location with my full time job taking up 50 hours or more a week of my time. 

Current Deck Status:

Barbarian PDF Delivered

Bard PDF Delivered

Cleric PDF 95% finished

Druid PDF 50% finished

Fighter PDF 40% finished

All Other Decks 25% (ART IS FINISHED ON ALL DECKS, writing needs to be finalized)

We are finished with the Cleric deck minus a single card, I'm going to be finishing that tonight and punching through the second half of Druid and finalizing the Fighter deck by next week. I expect to accelerate delivery of class deck PDF's greatly and have hired a secondary writer to assist with them as well so we should be moving MUCH MUCH faster than before.

The full book or the complete deck list can not be delivered until each individual deck is done, for those that are asking about when they should have their Book PDF in hand it won't be until we get all of the work done, that will be the last thing we can do.

That being said we are behind schedule right now, we were hoping to have all 12 decks complete in a digital format and begin laying out the book by this point, we're not there yet. This is an amazing project with 3x the amount of work that was needed for our last big magic item release (and that took us 1 year!) and we're going to be cramming that much extra work with the same quality in 1/2 the time frame. We're on this, you guys just kick back and keep an eye out for emails and updates!

Thanks for your support, when I get more time to give you a more complete update with better time lines and some more links to new items that have been finished you'll have a better look at what our new delivery schedule will be. 

More soon!

Barbarian Print & Play Deck DONE!
3 months ago – Mon, Oct 21, 2019 at 12:43:06 AM

Barbarian Deck Finished!

So, we're finally caught up and pumping out fully completed cards as fast as we can :) We've sent out releases to backers who pledged for the Print and Play copies of the Barbarian Deck along with those who pledged for ALL of the Print & Play decks, you should have an email from BackerKit with a link allowing you to download the Barbarian items now. As they are finished we'll be sending them out to everyone here in only the PnP format since the book will be a single collection of all the decks, there won't be minor releases of individual decks in book format so if you're holding out for the whole collection keep your eyes set on the end of the year. 

A page from the Barbarian PNP PDF!

We're doing what we can to make sure the completed Heroes Handbooks are in hand as soon as possible so we'll keep our nose to the grindstone until we get it done!

It's almost Halloween!

I hope everybody is having an excellent month so far :) Below is a short bulleted list of the things we'll be going over in this update so you can jump through bold headings and find what you're interested in! I hope having updates like this helps since we can include lots of stuff into one big email that you see instead of a lot of little ones through the month.

Class Deck Previews and Pre-Orders

If your friends missed out on our Decks of Adventurer's Allurement (which are class based magic items for 5E) then you have the opportunity to share the Pre Order store with them by using the link below. I wanted to share with you the progress of the project along with some previews of what we're doing that separates them from the universal items we made for the Magical Mystery line.

https://doaa.backerkit.com/hosted_preorders

The class decks themselves all revolve around magic items that are curated by special "class ambassadors" that each have their own style and appeal. Think of them as the highest level most powerful person in a certain class looking back on their favorite items and detailing why they're useful to your specific character class. You'll find on the Barbarian cards some references to "Skyos" the Barbarian Half-Dragon who curated the barbarian list along with a card dedicated to some story about that person.

The Barbarian Deck Narrator Card

Each class deck has cards that are universal, a handful which don't specifically reference something like "Rage" for a barbarian but most of the cards full benefit will be specially suited for the class it's made for. A Rage Forged Torch is still an Ever Burning Torch for anyone who would need to use it but in the hands of a Barbarian it becomes transforms from a useful if mostly harmless item into a weapon of pure burning fury!

There are going to be items as we said that are universal and part of what we're doing with these is making sure the theme is still 100% fitting for the class it's made for BUT also brings something to the table for those who might not specifically have a Barbarian (or other class) ability. In this instance you'll see the usefulness for many classes built into the Chaos Cleaver below :)

Now that you've seen a few of the cards for the Barbarian deck let me break down exactly what it is you're looking at so that each other deck might make more sense.

You'll find that each card has it's own style of with a color coding, a symbol and different narrators each with their own way of telling about their favorite or most useful items. The book will have further expanded areas with each "chapter" being a full introduction to the character narrating the deck and followed by the entire deck at length with each page showing off 2 items with full story and mechanics.

CLASS ICONS

So, as you can see these will be very different than the much more standard and universal items found in the Tome of Magical Mystery, be sure to pick up the pre-order and you'll receive your items when the rest of backers do as they all ship out! PDF's are expected to be delivered as they get finished, Barbarian/Bard/Cleric may be done as soon as Halloween and the rest will quickly start rolling out now that we've got all of the templates set up and 500 of the 600 art pieces finished! We are doing everything we can to get all of this ready for a PDF release to everyone in early January and the prints out as soon as they show up after that. https://doaa.backerkit.com/hosted_preorders
