FINAL HOURS for Kickstarter Excusive Pricing! (And Last Goal Now Unlocked!)
20 days ago – Fri, Oct 02, 2020 at 10:20:04 AM

Our last stretch goal is UNLOCKED! Together, we have unlocked The Definitive Guide to Warlocks! YAY!

AND still have 4 hours for folks who want to update and add to their pledge! We have a BUNCH of add on which will be available in BackerKit (our Pledge manager!) 

BUT an important thing to know is that these last 4 hours is the ONLY time for folks to lock in their price of The Standard Edition for $50 because that is a KICKSTARTER EXCLUSIVE PRICE! After this Kickstarter ends, the price of the book (because we unlocked all our stretch goals, making the book longer and more expensive to print) will rise up to $60! 

So, if you want the book for a discount, or want to tell your friends about the discount, it's now or never! Our Kickstarter exclusive pricing ends in 5 hours!

We wanted to give Jaron R. M. Johnson, the author of our next stretch goal, "Lifeblood" another shout out for his Kickstarter, Monsters of Murka: Restaurants and Retail -- A satirical 5e campaign supplement and resource book expanding the world of Monsters of Murka with new items, subclasses, and monsters!

Jaron and his team have 8 days to go, head on over to Monsters of Murka: Restaurants and Retail, and see what the fuss is all about! Their video is EPICALLY HILARIOUS, just like their campaign and setting. Truly worth checking out! Enjoy!

IMPORTANT! Our Pilot Episode is Now on YouTube! (And New Stretch Goals!)
21 days ago – Fri, Oct 02, 2020 at 05:33:26 AM

So excited to announce that our "The Red Opera: Last Days of the Warlock | Act 1 Pilot" is finally finished! 

Starting: Alcuin Gersh - GM, Michelle Nguyen Bradley - Xiggy, Satine Phoenix - Amber, Jamison Stone - Domadred, Rick Heinz - Knox, and Jacob Kile - Vander, this epic Pilot Episode was one of our stretch goals, and we all worked very hard to bring it to you before the end of the Kickstarter!

If you all like it, PLEASE leave a thumbs up and let us know in the comments if we should make more! If it gets enough traction, we could even run another Kickstarter to fund a full 10-Act Web Series of the whole campaign for you all--and maybe even record it all in person, on a real studio set! How exciting!

To make all that happen, though please share the link to the Pilot Episode to all your gamer friends, which will also...

We are on our final 3 days now, and need YOUR help to unlock our last few stretch goals! Please share, share, share, share! The best way to coordinate our collective efforts is on Discord, where we have a dedicated and growing community! See you there!

LAST STRETCH GOAL! We Need Your Help--Free PDF Giveaway by 2C Gaming!
21 days ago – Thu, Oct 01, 2020 at 09:45:12 AM

We are at the end... I don't even have words... 

Because of you all, we have unlocked each of our stretch goals except for one! With this LAST goal, together, we will make The Red Opera THE definitive guide to Warlocks for Players and Game Masters!  But we need your help! 

To aid us in this noble quest, our Friends at 2C Gaming are doing ANOTHER epic PDF giveaway (more details below!) All you have to do for the chance at awesome loot is 1. follow us on Facebook...

And then 2. share our "Last Day" post below requesting your friends to: "Check out this Kickstarter, they only have a few hours left!" (or some other similar text--totally up to you!)

I know it sounds trite, but your help sharing our post on Facebook will TRULY...

With the completion of this stretch goal we then will have, together, created not only an EPIC Campaign and Setting but also THE definitive guide to Warlocks--and for that, we will forever be grateful!  

And as promised, when you follow us on Facebook and share our "Last Day Post" our good friends at 2C gaming are giving away a copy of their Epic Legacy Campaign Codex!

Normally $19.95 on their website, and funded right here on Kickstarter (heck yes, fellow indie game devs!) The Epic Legacy Campaign Codex is a 5th Edition supplement expanding the powerful and tested Epic tier introduced in the Epic Legacy Core Rulebook, presenting these expansions through the lens of Nexus - the inter-dimensional crossroads. The Epic Legacy system provides all the tools Players and Dungeon Masters will need to bring your most epic games to life, expanding beyond 20th level for the 5th Edition of the world's greatest roleplaying game!

We can't speak highly enough of 2C Gaming if you all remember they are one of our professional partners and are helping us ensure that The Red Opera is truly optimized for high-level 5E play! So, please share our post on Facebook and we will select a lucky (maybe a couple, who knows) winner(s) to get this epic PDF for FREE!

Thank you!
