In a remarkable feat, Wayfarer: Nomadic Realms has surpassed its initial funding goal of $8,000 on Kickstarter within just 45 minutes, raising more than $57,000 to date. The project promises to offer an immersive open-world experience, complete with a captivating storyline and professionally designed gameplay, and standalone mechanics that can be integrated into any 5e campaign.
The setting guide offers players and game masters the chance to explore the fascinating culture of nomads and horse lords, as they journey through the myths and legends of the Steppes. With a vast library of content, including a huge bestiary, expansive armory, unique subclasses, and sprawling lore and geography, Wayfarer: Nomadic Realms offers an extensive range of resources to enhance any campaign.
One of the standout features of the guide is the expansive library of 5e+ content it offers. This includes seven authentic subclasses based on Steppe culture, a character race system based on nomadic zodiac signs, runic magic, and more. The book also includes a gargantuan tome of lore, featuring a full pantheon with domains, heroes, and NPCs, intricate storylines, biomes, and retelling of legends and prophecies.
Another notable aspect of Wayfarer: Nomadic Realms is the quality of its artwork. Each page is adorned with full artwork, making it a visual statement that is hand-drawn by the legendary comic artist and mythologist Bartu Bölükbaşı. The art ranges from item decks to chapter breaks, offering a truly immersive experience for players.
Nomadic Realms is the first setting guide in the Wayfarer series, a collection of RPGs that takes players on journeys to new and unexplored mythologies based on real-world cultural roots. The guide is an official adaptation of the best-selling mythological anthology, Nomadic Mythology Atlas, making it a must-have for any serious RPG enthusiast.
Overall, Wayfarer: Nomadic Realms promises to deliver a comprehensive and immersive experience to RPG players and game masters alike, and the successful Kickstarter campaign is a testament to its potential.
