Since we first started blogging about Accursed in 2013, the setting has enjoyed tremendous support from its fans. The game's initial publication depended upon a crowdfunding campaign. Without your help, it never could have come to fruition. Two years later, we're reaching out for your support once more. We want to create a companion volume to Accursed that explores the World of Morden, and we need your help to realize that.

At the base level, we're funding an additional ebook on Valkenholm and Steppengrad - "Frost and Fang" - written by Jason Marker and Ross Watson. We'll combine that with Sand and Stone to make a great new print book too. But we'd like to do even more. With your support, we're hoping to fund three total ebooks, to create a nice compilation of material covering the six nations of Morden, the Discordian Sea, and the Outlands.

This is a short project--we're just running for 21 days. We also offer a draft version of the Frost and Fang ebook as an immediate reward to all of our backers upon pledging. We know money can be tight after the holidays, but our goals are relatively modest. With your support, we can also make the rewards valuable. Please consider helping us start 2016 in an Accursed fashion.

Click through to the Kickstarter for more information on the project as well as an opportunity to back it and see our selection of different rewards.

About the Setting:
Witches have ruled the land since the last battles of conquest, but their Grand Coven has been sundered, leaving behind remnants of a once-mighty army. The survivors of the horde include captured citizens of the conquered nations that fought as the Witches’ shock troops. These are the Accursed—the Witchmarks burned into their flesh and souls transformed these men and women into monsters. Now, unable to return to their former lives, the Accursed wander the land, giving aid to those in need in an attempt to atone for past sins. Light has failed, darkness is ascendant. Only those bearing the forms of monsters can stand against the tide of the Witches’ evil. The Accursed are this world’s only hope—they must learn to embrace their curse or to fight against it, and find some way to free themselves forever of their Witchmark.

Accursed is a dark fantasy setting that requires the Savage Worlds Core Rules and Savage Worlds Horror Companion for use. It includes background information on the nations of Morden. Game mechanics include horrific new Witchbreeds for use as playable characters, along with Setting Rules, Hindrances, Edges, and Powers suited to telling stories set in Morden. The full setting guide also includes detailed information on eight of the Witches and their banes, as well as a range of adventure hooks and a plot point campaign.

About the Crowdfunding Campaign:
Principal writing for the first ebook is complete, and immediately available to backers in the first project update. Preliminary artwork has already begun to come in. However, we need quite a bit more artwork still, and that’s what we’re hoping to fund.

Once funding is successful and final artwork is collected, we'll go through a rigorous system of collecting playtest feedback, final editing, and cleaning up the layout. Then, the book will be available in electronic and print format through DriveThruRPG.com.

Thanks to a strong show of support, we achieved our initial funding goal during our first day of the project! Now, we'll start to concentrate on stretch goals.

We've issued an update to the project discussing the artwork progress for Frost and Fang.
