Latest Updates from Our Project:
Stretch Goal Unlocked: 5 magic item evolutions! Plus, check out this art!
8 months ago
– Tue, Oct 04, 2022 at 12:42:24 AM
You've unlocked another stretch goal!
We're upgrading 5 of the magic items in the book with an evolution. These evolutions keep your items fresh and interesting. And it's like adding 5 new items to the book!
Next up: 5 More Magic Items. And a "minibook."
When we unlock the next stretch goal at $56k, we'll have enough magic items to compile them in their very own PDF. You'll get this "minibook" FREE with The Anansi's Tapestry of Lives PDF. All the items will still appear in the main book next to the relevant NPC description. We just duplicate and compile those items into the minibook, as a useful secondary tool. The goal is to make your life simpler, so you're not hunting through 320+ pages or an appendix for the magic item you want to gift a player or use in your campaign.
Mountain Lake Location (now in color)
In Update #6 we shared this sketch of the mountain lake location.
We got some feedback, so I want to show off our next iteration.Now in color!
We still have some rendering to do, but you can see some beautiful progress. Tell us what you think in the comments.
Thank you again for your support. We appreciate you spreading the word in your socials, discords, reddit - everywhere!
Sneak Peek: Anansi's Journal of Common Places Sketches!

– Sat, Oct 01, 2022 at 03:36:29 PM
We're super excited about all the unique and interesting NPCs in Anansi's Tapestry of Lives. They've got great stories and they're going to add some fantastic depth to your games. Your players will be thrilled!
I also wanted to highlight Anansi's Journal of Common Places, and share a little art we're working on.
One of our writers, DeAngelo Murillo, wrote the location: "Cementerio de la Luna"(or cemetery at night).
Anansi's Journal of Common Places is all about providing you and your players with distinct, highly-flavorful and fun locations. This Hispanic themed take on a cemetery checks ALL those boxes!
We want to share a special Sneak Peak preview of our early work in progress.
I can't wait until this is done!
Here's another sneak peak: an early sketch for a stunning mountain lake. What do you think? A or B?
If you haven't looked at our mini-preview PDF, come on back to the Kickstarter page and download it!
Almost 500 Backers! And almost to our next Stretch Goal!
Please keep sharing and telling your friends!
A Project by our Friends at Awfully Queer Heroes
Selanar's Socketed Items is a 5e and Pathfinder compatible module.
It is designed as an option to magically enhance your equipment and items, specifically tailored to your characters. Flexible enough that low level characters can afford it and have custom gear but also that high level are not overpowered and break the game.
This module is only £7 (about $8.50 US) for exceptional quality and repeated fun.
Nearly 450 Supporters! Plus, should every book come with a D20? (and a project by Alchemy RPG)

We have almost 450 people who have ledged their support! That's amazing! You all are incredible!
Now, we're only $9,000 from our next stretch goal! Can we ask you to post about the project on your socials?
Feel free to use the following text or write your own:
I just pre-ordered Anansi's Tapestry of Lives on Kickstarter. It's over 320+ pages of TTRPG content, with over 100 detailedNPCs, D&D 5E compatible stat blocks, magic items, adventures and more. There's even an app with professionally voice acted intro monologues for every NPC. You should check it out and pre-order it, so we can unlock more content.
We literally could not do this without you! If you can get the word out, I know we can make this book even better for you!
The Sky God's Oversized D20
Question: Did the early bird free gift of the oversized D20 factor in at all to your decision to back? Did it factor into your decision to get the physical book?
We're asking, because we want to figure out if we should just offer this custom D20 for everyone who gets a physical copy of the book, regardless of if they pledged in the first 48 hours or the last 48 hours.
I'd love to hear your opinion, please.
A Project by our Friends at Alchemy RPG
Our friend over at Alchemy RPG are in the last 6 day of their campaign for: Dark Symmetry. It's the next installment in the Lore of Aetherra saga, dedicated to exploring the underwater city of Chrysalea and its technological mystery. A 300+ page campaign setting and adventure, your party can continue the Lore of Aetherra saga or start fresh and uncover the mysteries of Chrysalea on your own. If you missed the first campaign, you're in luck! Pick up The Lost Druid as a part of several pledge tiers or as an add-on in both the Standard and Limited Editions. Together these two books form the first half of an epic saga that will take your players from level 1-10 with nearly 600 pages of content.
There's so much in this book. Aethercraft rules for crafting, 100+ pages of setting, 200+ pages of adventure, 13+ animated scenes, 12 all new subclasses, 50+ new magic items, and more!
As always, thank you for your support! I appreciate you!
Another Stretch Goal Unlock? Plus, integration with Shard Tabletop!

– Thu, Sep 29, 2022 at 12:17:54 AM
We're only about $1,200 away from our next stretch goal!
I'd love to stay up and watch us hit that goal, but I really need some sleep!
That stretch goal is getting you more fantastic detailed locations for Anansi's Journal of Common Places. And next up will be some amazing evolving magic items in the main book! Items that grow with a character can be a great way to help a player really engage with the story and get more attached.
New VTT Integration!
We're excited to announce that with the help of Shard Tabletop, we'll be offering a FREE integration into their virtual tabletop platform! That's right, it will come free with your pledge for Anansi's Tapestry of Lives! No extra costs. Details to come.
Let us know in the comments if there are other virtual tabletops you'd like to ensure we make Anansi's available on! AND spread the word on Socials. Let's see if we can get more amazing supporters like you!

Anansi's Tapestry of Lives funded in just under 3 hours! Thank you! We're incredibly grateful and can't wait for you to get this amazing book and all the other products we're creating for you.
We're very close to our first $25k stretch goal. We'll likely hit it overnight! I'll be sure to update the graphic in the morning, and we can hopefully reveal our next goal.
NPC Voice App Update
We have a lot of amazing creators helping on this project, and you get access to all their talent. We're excited to share we have three guests from different Critical Role shows who are voicing NPCs for this project. We're happy to welcome Luis Carazo, Michelle Nguyen Bradley, and Robbie Daymond to Anansi's Tapestry of Lives! You'll get their voiced characters in the NPC Voices App.
The NPC Voices App is part of the all digital "Intangible Master" pledge tier and every tier above it. It's a great tool where you can conveniently search, sort, and access all of the NPC details from your phone or tablet. If you back at the "Local Legend" tier or higher, the app is basically Free to you.
The app also gives you access to amazing voice acted monologues that breathe even more life into all the NPCs from Anansi's Tapestry of Lives! As a web app, you can use it on any device: Android, Apple, or Windows.
