You did it, with 39 hours to spare! Johnstone Metzger goes to work on the Dungeon World Stretch Goal! 

Special thanks to the Gauntlet folks for pushing us over the top for this. I'm ready to start the weekend now!

Thanks Kickstarters,

One of the main protagonists of the Roden is the Rakshasi. The human folk of south river call her, Velmarh, the jaguar goddess she walks. The humans revere her and owe her their prosperity, their lives. She has kept the Wolfen from hunting this far south, and for this the Wolfen fear the Rakshasi.  

If memory serves, AD&D was where I first  learned of the Rakshasa, second only to the Illithid on my list of favorites. The reverse paws, the shape changing powers —shoot, they had me at reverse paws! The Burning Wheel version of the Rakshasa, called a Raksha is a trouble maker. In fact, it gets a mechanical award ( a persona point) for any conflict it starts!  Velmarh is also an outsider, summoned by the humans during the Elven wars. She hates it here and longs to return home and she needs the Roden to make that happen for her.

So three days out we have a Burning Wheel zine with a campaign map, expanded content on the Roden by Peter, the creator of the Burning Wheel Roden. We’ll cover sorcery and art magic used by Roden. Playable Wolfen life paths. 

But we’re less than $250 away from Dungeon World content written by Johnstone Metzger… so close! The Dungeon World stretch goal also delivers Roden and Wolfen as playable DW characters, but also fronts for the last Elf and the Rakshasi. Spread the word! Please don’t let my mom slap down the difference, you know how moms want their babies to win!  

Later Kickstarters!
