UPDATE: Anansi's Early Release Saturday, March 11
20 days ago – Wed, Mar 08, 2023 at 12:54:04 PM

Early Release Draft

Phew! What a couple of months! I'm happy to share that all backers at the $68 level and above (who filled out the Backerkit survey :P) will be getting an early release PDF of Anansi's Tapestry of Lives Saturday, March 11. The PDF does not have all of the content, but it's still a big draft coming in at over 200 pages. And we wanted you to begin enjoying these awesome NPCs and other content asap!

We've experienced some delays in hearing from all our writers to make sure we have their names correct for crediting and our team also wanted a bit more time to get some additional art completed. Check out some of the new sketches!

What do you think? Any favorites?

After you receive the early release draft, you'll also receive a link to a Google Form where you can provide feedback, if you like. This is optional, but it's an opportunity for us to hear what NPCs are resonating, and how/if you like the initial side quests. We can use the feedback to add some polish, and guide the outstanding content. There is still some more writing to do, but it's coming along at a good clip! We want to be able to ensure we're taking into account your feedback, so you get the BEST book possible. :)

Player Options

One of our stretch goals was for five subclasses and five feats inspired by some of our NPCs. We have drafts for all of these, and will be sharing this early draft with everyone who backed for the book or PDF of Anansi's Tapestry of Lives. If you've completed the Backerkit survey, you'll get a PDF of the early release for player options. We'll also send a feedback form, so you can let us know what you like or what could use improvement.

Pre-order Page

You can also check out the landing page we're using to promote pre-orders.

Please share it around! (also happy for any feedback or ideas).

Thank you for supporting us on this journey. I'm really grateful to you! And I can't wait to start hearing feedback on the NPCs and everything else.



Sneak Peek: Table of Contents (in progress)
about 1 month ago – Tue, Feb 21, 2023 at 04:27:39 PM

We're working through layout of edited content, so wanted to quickly share an in progress image of the

Table of Contents

in progress draft

The above includes 82 of the 110 NPCs that have gone through editing. It doesn't (yet) include player options and other content like:

  • Box Text
  • Items
  • Stat Blocks
  • Side Quests

If you're one of the lucky ones who backed at the $68 tier or above, this is a pretty good representation of what will be in the early release that we'll send you through Backerkit in a couple of weeks.  We'll have the player options in that early release too, as well as some other content we're polishing up. I'm really excited to start hearing your feedback.

If you haven't completed your survey on Backerkit, please do! Email me at if you need me to resend the link.

The Black Ballad (coming to Backerkit)

Rick Heinz is one of the creative minds behind "The Red Opera" which was a successful Kickstarter. Essentially a hard rock inspired D&D 5E setting book. It's cool!

He and some others are launching the Black Ballad over on Backerkit, which is an adventure that starts after your players experience a TPK (total party kill). It's a beautiful book with first class content.

Go check it out, and sign up to get notified on launch.

Progress Report: Anansi's Tapestry of Lives
about 1 month ago – Sun, Feb 12, 2023 at 12:00:53 PM

Hi, everyone! I'm Alive! Per my earlier update, I was down with a really bad flu bug from Jan 7th/8th until Jan 28. It was... a lot. But, I’m finally catching up on things, and wanted to share some progress!

86% of backers have completed the Backerkit survey. There are still 182 people who haven’t completed it. We’ll continue sending reminders, but if you haven't completed your survey, please do so. It's important for us to be able to get a finalized print quote for everything.

We’ve sent out the NPC Collaboration forms for backers at the “Thief of The Sky” and “Avatar of The Sky God’s Revenge” tiers. If you received one, please complete it, so we can get cracking on making your custom NPC entry for the book!

NPC s and Early Release

As NPC are moving through editing, we’re back to laying out the early release PDF. We’re pushing to co complete it soon, and I apologize for the delay. Here are some of the new NPCs you’ll see in that copy.

MK, the doctor. Edgar, the puppeteer. Rineri, the tax collector. Krix, the Stablehand. Wart, the farmer, with Pig, the cow.

Who's your favorite?


Check out these updated location images from Anansi’s Journal of Common Places!

Quiet Hamlet, Fine Tavern, Apothecary, Bakery

Some beautiful locations to make your game world come to life! Not every place in the adventure is detailed, so this supplement is there to make your life easier. Each location has a description that can be read aloud, other immersive details, and searchable secrets (stuff that's noticeable, hidden, or secret should player search the area).

What do you think of the art?

Vox Storia

In about 2 weeks, we’ll be ready to launch the Beta for Vox Storia. This is our web app feature that allows you to review NPC details and listen to their monologues on your computer, phone, or tablet. You’ll also be able to create and share your own NPCs, locations, and items (with or without voice over). You'll be able to organize them into collections based on your game, and other useful features!

Eventually, we plan on adding collaboration features, so you can get help with art, writing, editing, and voice over -- and get paid if you're doing that kind of work.

Once we’ve gone through thorough Beta testing, we’ll allow select creators to begin selling their own content on the app!

Next Update

We’ll have a big update on about 2 weeks. Stay tuned!
