Our friends at Third Eye Games have recently launched a new Kickstarter campaign for the first sourcebook to Part-Time Gods, called Divine Instruments.
From the Kickstarter page:
Divine Instruments is the first sourcebook for the game line, expanding on some of the core themes and interesting ideas mentioned in the corebook. Specifically, this means expanded discussion and rules for:
- Worshippers: Rules for a more intimate approach to worshippers and their effect on a god. Also, how to pick a Champion to fight for your dominion.
- Territory: New info on how divine territory is collected, distributed and fought by in the daily struggle between gods for power.
- Relics: New options for starting Relics, as well as rules for how to be a Relic Crafter yourself and expanded rules on relics that house the souls of the old gods.
In addition to the expanded rules, there will also be new Outsiders (mythological creatures bent on taking the gods down a peg), 3 new Theologies (viewpoints on a god’s power), and new Entitlements (natural powers of the gods). On top of all of that, at least 1 adventure should be included as well.
In addition to the Divine INstruments sourcebook, which will be funded at $4,000, the company has several other sourcebooks and add-ons planned. Of particular note is the $19,000 short story anthology, which–if funded–will feature Yours Truly as one of the authors. You do want to read my short fiction based on Eloy’s fantastic setting, don’t you?
The Kickstarter is currently hot: as of this writing, it has been live for only a few hours and has already reached 25% funding. We need it to reach 500% to unlock all of the super awesome stretch goals though, so head on over and pledge today!
As an added bonus, if you don’t already have Part-Time Gods as part of your collection you can purchase it at a Pay-What-You-Want price from now through the end of the campaign. Pick it up cheap, give it a read, and remember to pledge your support.
