The Wilderness Kickstarter is now live! Here's a free map to celebrate!
3 months ago – Fri, Feb 12, 2021 at 02:08:58 AM

We are delighted to announce that our next Kickstarter - The Wilderness  - is now live. 

80 pages of modular wild maps. 

You can find details and pledge here (we have 48 hour early bird pledges available this time round!!)

Online adventures are covered too!

We know just how important online adventures have been and we are once again including the digital Wilderness pack with every physical pledge.

And of course there is a digital only pledge which is amazing value (110+ map tiles, 90+ tokens, 50+ page PDF 5e Adventure and 110+ page PDF random encounter generator).

More on the books themselves

The Wilderness is the Third Modular Map Book set in our Trilogy, following on from and fully compatible with The Dungeon and Towns & Taverns.

Featuring every biome you could need - from snow to desert through grasslands, swamps, heaths and mountains - this map book set covers all the terrain options for your adventure. This time around the Little Book will be perilous points to go with the Wilderness Maps and we'll be producing a set of Wilderness Add-On Scenery to match. 

Lets get that £150k Stretch Goal hit so every book includes the Add-On Stickers again!

To celebrate the launch here is a free Map inspired by The Wilderness

We are delighted to say that we expect all the parcels to be with the couriers for the UK, EU and rest of world backers by the end of this week.

UK, EU & Rest of World

GamesQuest will finish processing you this week and you will get your tracking email when the courier scans in your package! Please bear with us as the couriers are very busy and it may take a few days for your shipment to enter their systems.

We remain here to help resolve any issues with you. The below is a little troubleshooting guide to help resolve any issues with FAQ for some of the questions we are getting.

We'll announce the winner (winners if we can't decide!) In January so everyone gets to enter if they'd like.

A little look ahead

We'd like to share a little look ahead to our next Kickstarter; The Wilderness! We expect to launch in February 2021 and the core products will be the modular book set - this time featuring wilderness maps - so grassland, forest, desert, coast, snow, mountains and many more - A Little Book to compliment the set and add-on scenery wilderness stickers.

As this is the third in out planned fantasy modular map trilogy we'll also be celebrating with some additional products which we'll share more details of in the new year! For now I can confirm we are creating a Hardback book of Random encounters! It will feature all the random encounters from Dungeon Run, Tavern Crawl and Wilderness Trek, along with lots and lots of random tables and some maps :)

If you are interested in following the progress for The Wilderness, Matt is live drawing the maps on our Twitch channel on Monday nights 10pm GMT!

And Finally

As fulfilment draws to a close for Towns & Taverns this will be our last weekly update. We will update before Christmas and in the New Year just to make sure everyone is happy and books are received. We will of course be here on the comments and messages to help anyone with questions.

A huge thank you from us here at Loke for your support and kind words throughout this project. You have all made a tough year so much brighter and we hope the books do the same for you all!

All the best!
