Latest Updates from Our Project:

FUNDED! What's Next! Plus some projects from our friends!

We Did It! YOU Did It!

I apologize for the delay in writing this update. On Thursday, the day the campaign ended, I was in the air travelling to Big Bad Con. It’s a fantastic convention with fantastic people, and you should check it out next year.

It’s been a full couple of days, but I snuck away to say thank you to all our incredible, amazing, fantastic supporters. So grateful for what you are allowing us to accomplish.

Late Pledges/Pledge Manager

Late pledges will be available in just a few days. We’re working through some internal decisions between Backerkit and GameFound. If you have feelings/thoughts about either platform, I’m happy to hear them. Either comment or message me!

Whatever platform we use; you’ll be able to add things or upgrade your pledgees until we close the pledge manager.

Physical Book Delivery

Physical book delivery is scheduled for May 2023. There’s always the potential for delays, however, our goal is to beat that delivery date. We’re aiming to print in Europe, because if the book is printed and shipped within the EU, VAT is lower for our EU backers.

As a reminder, shipping will be collected through the pledge manager. Working with Nord Games for North American fulfillment and GamesQuest for other fulfillment, means we’ll be in expert hands at a VERY reasonable price.

Early Access and Digital Delivery

If you backed at the $68 Intangible Mater tier or higher, within the next month you’ll receive a message getting you early access to the content. To ensure you get access in a timely way, I strongly encourage you to join our Discord server if you can.

If you don’t have early access, we anticipate you getting access to your digital copies in April. We’ve added a LOT of content to the book, and we have a lot of content already written that still needs editing, polishing, and playtesting. We’ll keep you all in the loop throughout the process.

Thank you again for the amazing support! If you have questions, comments, ideas, etc – I’m always happy to have you reach out.

Over the next few days, we’re going to be saying thank you to some of the other campaigns that shouted us out by shouting Them out to you. We’re a community that grows best together, so I urge you to check out these fantastic projects. Support if you can and hype them if you can’t support. :)

Here’s a quick summary of our friends who promoted us in the final hours! Look for more on their projects over the coming days.

Final Stretch Goal Unlocked!
over 1 year ago – Fri, Oct 28, 2022 at 01:04:02 AM

We're adding 2 NPCs, each with their own side quest!

We've also unlocked enough side quests (OVER 20!) that we can compile them and any creatures into a handy-dandy mini-book. All the adventures will still appear in the main book, but this extra PDF makes it even easier to reference and use them in your games.

I'm literally about to board my flight! But I wanted to say thank you to everyone for all of the support and making Anansi's Tapestry of Lives, the Journal of Common Places, the NPC Voices App, and all these amazing tools and content a possibility. You're going to love all this stuff!

Quest Giver as an Add-On. Plus one more Avatar of The Sky God's Revenge!
over 1 year ago – Thu, Oct 27, 2022 at 08:55:36 AM

It is amazing to see all this support continue to roll in. I hope you're all as excited to unlock the next stretch goal as I am! I think it's in reach today!

I wanted to point out that we have both a pledge tier and an add-on for a donated hardcover.

This tier gives you (or a friend) the PDF of the main book, and any mini-books we unlock, as well as the 12 month subscription to our TTRPG and storytelling tools at We donate the hardcover in your name to a school or library in a low-income neighborhood. As someone who grew up in poverty, and missed out on a lot of stuff other kids got to enjoy -- this is really personally important to me. I'm so grateful to our backers who have donated, and to every backer for helping to raise enough to make the donations possible.

In addition to being a pledge tier, you can add $60 to your pledge to get it as an add-on.  I'm so happy to see we have almost 20 donations! I'm hopeful we can do more in these last hours. 

I also want your opinion on something. What if we sweetened the deal? What if we donate Anansi's Tapestry of Lives AND the Journal of Common Places? Would that make you more likely to do this as a pledge or add-on? Let me know if the comments what we could do (within reason) to make this even more attractive!

Avatar of The Sky God's Revenge

We had a planning meeting for this mega tier that includes a chance to play a game with some of the amazing stars contributing to this book! Someone mentioned that not all the players may be able to make the same date. Considering how often that happens at my own table, it should have been obvious! 

To accommodate varying schedules, we realize we'll probably want to offer multiple session. To account for that extra cost to do that, we're opening up another space in this tier. This will allow us to be more accommodating with multiple date options for the few people able to support at this tier. 

We realize it's not super likely someone will swoop in and snag it in the last few hours we have, but we figure it's worth throwing out there. We're 100% dedicated to ensuring everyone has an amazing experience to go along with the incredible content we're producing for you!

I appreciate your support! I appreciate you hyping us and Anansi's! You're the best!!!

Stretch Goal #7 Unlocked. Next Stretch Goals.
over 1 year ago – Thu, Oct 27, 2022 at 08:11:24 AM


We're so impressed with the amazing support from everyone! This is fantastic! Thank you!

With this stretch goal, you've unlocked  5 more NPC stat bocks, plus 5 subclasses inspired by some of our favorite NPCs, plus 5 feats to help bring those flavors to any class!

Planned Subclasses

  • Bard: Aerialist (dancing through battle, you inspire and dazzle friend and foe alike)
  • Fighter: Guardian (the halflings' tradition of knighthood - mastiff included)
  • Paladin: Oath of The Vagabond King (sometimes to save the world, you have to tear it down)
  • Sorcerer: Soothsayer (the spirits of nature whisper their secrets to your soul)
  • Wizard: Thrall Lord (living or dead, all things bend to your command)

Planned Feats

  • Acrobat - You're exceptionally graceful in and out of battle.
  • Cavalry Knight - What if your mount didn't die all the time?
  • Petty Nobility - Even if they hate you, they'll respect you.
  • Rebel Leader - Inspire fervor in your allies and fear in your enemies.
  • Tempestarii - Is it really "predicting" the weather when you can change it?

What's Next?

Our next Stretch Goals unlock at $95k and at $105k.


We'll add 2 new NPCs, each with their own side quest. These additions will give us enough side quests to create another mini-book. All 20+ side quests will be in the main book, but they'll now also appear in a separate easy to reference PDF.


I don't know how well fit all the pages in one book, but we'll add 5 more NPCs, with art, voice overs, the whole shebang!

I need to update the graphic, but it's after 11 pm and I'm making the update from my phone. I'll let our graphic person know first thing in the morning!

Thank you again for all of the amazing support! You're helping create an amazing book and set of tools!
