Latest Updates from Our Project:

Final Update - Thank you all!
10 months ago – Mon, Dec 14, 2020 at 02:37:23 AM

This is our final update for this project, and I must say it has been a journey! Thank you all for taking it with us. This has been a learning experience for us and it has made us so much stronger. I know we are a newer company but we thrive on feedback from you all, love to learn and grown, and always want to be a company that actually responds to our followers. 

Do not worry, we will still be available through Kickstarter through messages, our email, or any other social media. If you do not already follow us on at least one of our outlets then please CLICK HERE. 


If you love the content within Harold the Halflings Herbology Handbook and would love to see more content from us. Then come check out one of the two large scale projects we have planned for 2021 that is now live. Your continued support is an excellent way to stay up to date, gain access to free rewards, and gain more of our highly detailed supplements. The Voyages of the Vagabond is a combination of fantasy roleplaying game supplements that can be used by any Game Master to help detail and build their fantasy worlds. In this project, these supplements will be focused on the roads of fantasy worlds and the environments that they exist in. It's a great way for a Game Master to expand their fantasy world, build upon current writings, or even pull content that fits their world the best.

We understand that your gaming budget is valuable and, during the holiday season, it gets exceptionally tight. We appreciate every one of our backers, and would rather provide our backers with rewards that make it affordable and worthwhile. The year 2020 took a hit content creators extremely hard by taking away conventions and events many of us depend on to bring in income. For us, it was either fold the card or dig deep and focus on writing during the utter chaos that the world is in. This is why we are creating more than usual and you gain the benefit of this by having access to extreme discounts for this project. Thank you for following, supporting our projects, and lifting us up in the craziest of times.

By supporting this Kickstarter and the content within it you are directly impacting the livelihood of our team members. The successful funding of this project will allow them to continue their work on this project and to finish the production of these books.

Every backer directly impacts creators and the work of writers, artists, graphic designers, editors, and so many others. You are also supporting us and saying you love our content. We are providing extreme discounts for those who back our projects, share, follow our social media, and lift us up in the craziest of times.

  • You wish to enhance the traveling of your games, instead of skipping over it.
  • You wish to have a more detailed understanding of terrains, travel, and the interaction of how magic can affect these concepts.
  • You want system neutral content that can outlast any edition or chosen system you use.
  • You are tired of unrealistic material that uses magic as a bandaid instead of accounting for a world's natural laws and how it interacts logically with magic.
  • You love supporting 3rd party content from creators like Deep Dungeon Games.
  • You love collecting RPG books, supplements, and content for your nerd shelf.

If you are unable to back this project, you can take part in its success by sharing and discussing it everywhere you can. Our aim has always been to create useful content that is more than a paragraph and a piece of art. We hope that you will join this journey of fantasy terrains, travels, and troubles to make games both fantastic and realistic. You can CLICK HERE to go to the project page.

One thing that we always strive to do is find a way to give back to our backers. This comes with free stuff, affordable add-ons, and more. Yet, we have been looking for a way to expand on our content for some time now, but often we are limited to the cost of printing and shipping. As a content creator, writer, and game master, I always strive to keep expanding on my own world and creations. This means building lore, mechanics, and content to finite detail. So, the picture below you will recognize from the herbology book, but where we were limited to 700 to 800 words per page. With this new platform, we are able to expand and grow one plant to almost 2500 words. 

It is not the final layout, but seeing the expansion on one crop is incredible. So be sure to follow our social media or back our project for future information on how we plan to present our fantasy world. The working title is the world of the broken chain and not sure if that will stick yet. Anyway, I hope the rest of everyone's year is safe and sound. It has been an absolute pleasure to have you, and we hope to see you for many more projects to come.

Voyages of the Vagabond is LIVE!
11 months ago – Tue, Dec 01, 2020 at 06:17:40 PM

We are excited to announce the official launch of Voyages of the Vagabond! This project will only be available to backers until January 1, 2021, and it is slam packed with content, art, and creativity.

  • With 800+ pre-launch backers, you need to get in quick to get the early bird rewards! 

CLICK HERE OR ON ANY OF THE IMAGES TO BE TAKEN TO THE VOYAGES OF THE VAGABOND  KICKSTARTER PAGE 

The Voyages of the Vagabond is a combination of fantasy roleplaying game supplements that can be used by any Game Master to help detail and build their fantasy worlds. In this project, these supplements will be focused on the roads of fantasy worlds and the environments that they exist in. It is a great way for a Game Master to expand their fantasy world, build upon current writings, or even pull content that fits their world the best.

While all creators are wonderful and unique, we feel we are quite different than many other content creators out there. We always strive to bring quality concepts and new ideas with the material we create and aim to save our backers every dollar possible. The best part is that through our experiences we have been able to grow into a content creator that provides creative concepts and functional ideas. We have learned to adapt to the high printing costs of large books by making the content of this project completed in two books, instead of one. One thing that we will never change is that we have always sought to improve our content and the fulfillment process by listening to the backer’s views and perspectives. Above all else always put our customers first. This Kickstarter's goal is to fund the development of the first two books in our new Expedition Series, which is a series of four books in all, to inspire your mind and bring the roads and travels of your realms to full fruition.

We understand that your gaming budget is valuable, and, during the holiday season, it gets exceptionally tight. We appreciate every one of our backers and would like to provide them with rewards that are affordable and worthwhile. The year 2020, combined with the holiday season, can only create utter chaos at the best of times. Therefore, we are providing extreme discounts for those who follow us, back our projects, and lift us up in the craziest of times.


  • You wish to enhance the traveling of your games, instead of skipping over it.
  • You wish to have a more detailed understanding of terrains, travel, and the interaction of how magic can affect these concepts.
  • You want system neutral content that can outlast any edition or chosen TTRPG system you use.
  • You are tired of unrealistic material that uses magic as a bandaid instead of accounting for a world's natural laws and how it interacts logically with magic.
  •  You love supporting 3rd party content from creators like Deep Dungeon Games. 
  •  You love collecting RPG books, supplements, and content for your nerd shelf.
     

If you are unable to back this project, you can take part in its success by sharing and discussing it everywhere you can.

We hope that you will join this journey of fantasy terrains, travels, and troubles to make games both fantastic and realistic.

Free Holiday Fun & Games
11 months ago – Fri, Nov 20, 2020 at 10:28:09 PM

Hello everyone, I hope everyone is having a fantastic week! We always love giving back to you all, even if it is in the form of digital content! I personally never might be able to give back to each of, but I am sure going to try.

The end of the year is upon us and that means a ton of holiday shenanigans. This can take the form of good food, friends, family, and hopefully fun. This year has been heavy on us all, and hopefully, you all are able to do the things you want to for the holiday season. Just remember to be safe and remember that we are all in this together. 

So, this year's chaos has allowed me to get way more focused on the back end of things when in a normal year I would let it slide. This is because I normally do 2 to 3 conventions every month, with mixed results depending on a plethora of things. The greatest loss to me is that I do not get to meet followers, backers, and customers of Deep Dungeon Games. 

So I have put together a few Print & Play PDFs of a few games we have made over the past few years. I believe these three games will provide you a ton of fun, with some games being fun for all and others being for only adults. 


Below are the games that are available in their digital format, and I hope this helps you make it through the holidays even if you do not get to spend it with those you wish!

 CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD THE GAMES VIA ARE DOWNLOAD PAGE ON OUR WEBSITE 

The links are right towards the top of the page and please let us know how much fun you have playing this free content!

Click to go to Pre Launch Kickstarter Page and be notified on project launch!!!

 Do not forget the pre-launch page for Voyages is now live and you can be notified upon launch! 


Have a happy thanksgiving if you celebrate the holiday!

Regards 

Deep Dungeon Games

Checking in with everyone!
11 months ago – Fri, Nov 13, 2020 at 11:51:19 PM

Hey everybody, I hope you are all enjoying Harolds thus far and I would love to hear any stories or comments you might have about using it. It is truly a unique book and one of my favorites on my own nerd shelf! If you are having any issues with items just shoot me a message, I am going to spend this weekend making sure I have not missed anything or anyone. I am working on the few with dice issues or missing deck issues already and should have a resolution to those few missing those items. 


Thank you to all of you wonderful backers! You all have been able to help me through one of the most difficult times of my life and rekindled my love for OUR COMMUNITY!


No matter what faith, following, creed, or heritage you personally belong to, this tabletop RPG community has always been one of the most supportive, uplifting, and caring. I know we are a bit late on delivery but all things considering, I think we have delivered a quality product for you to use in your games.


We're excited to announce our next and final Kickstarter for 2020 and we must say what a year it has been. Yet the best part about November being here is we are that much closer to 2021 and hopefully a better year for the entire world.


 Click here to be the first to get notified of the launch and take advantage of early bird rewards!!!!! 

The Voyages of the Vagabonds Pre Launch Page Is Officially Live!

We always strive to keep content that makes sense and flows along a line in a fashion. This makes the content and the writings flow really well and also allows backers and customers to build their worlds slowly as they need to.


  •  The Mineralogy Manual - Explored the surface and underground of the realms bringing you rocks, minerals, elements, and all other manners of content for worldbuilding from the ground up.
  •  Harold the Halflings Herbology Handbook - Took a look at the different flora of the realms and how they interact with the ecology of your fantasy world and allowed true growth of your fantasy worlds.
  •  Niwri's Marvelous Menagerie of the Multiverse   - Took a look at the different fauna of the realms and how they interact with the ecology of your fantasy world and brought you closer to the wilds.
  •  The Weavers Writings on the Wilds - Gave you an advanced look into surviving the wilds of the realms from the perspective of an amazing female orc ranger named Ripley.

The books that Toburny Lynnris (aka the fantasy NPC version of my father who died in a motorcycle accident in August) will be narrating for are known as Magnificent Mounts & Where They Go & Terrific Terrains & Terrible Travels. These two books will be the primary focus of the Kickstarter we have dubbed the Voyages of the Vagabond.

We love to create and write and this year has allowed us to bring in additional writers, artists, graphic designers, and other members across the globe as part of our team. I at least feel we are very different than many of the other content creators out there and always bring you a ton of content but save you money as well. The best part is that we listen to our backers and learn as we did with the finding of the cost of the mineralogy manual to print. It would seem that it grows exceptionally with the overall page count despite what one might think. This is why we decided to go with two books for the Voyages of the Vagabond Kickstarter.


The First Book Of The Voyages Of The Vagabond is Known As Magnificent Mounts & Where They Go

Click this image to go to pre launch page!

The content included in this book will include content below & more:

  • Will cover the fantastic and more animal-like mounts that the common races of the fantasy realms ride. These races include dwarves, elves, humans, orcs, gnomes, halflings, dragonkin, elementals, celestials, and fiends.
  • Will explore fantastic travel with 10 unique ways to travel the realms fantasy-style like Tarv’s Tavern which is a large inn and magical building that looks extremely tiny from the outside. Yet, the magic of the tavern expended to make the tavern more accommodating.
  • Will be on interesting individuals who travel the roads of fantasy realms. It comes with details about caravans & a caravan generator that you can fill with 150 NPC’s of everyday travelers, merchant travelers, and caravan hirelings.
  • Caravans that travel the realms will be covered in large details.  In ancient times, all the way up to before railroads became mainstream, people used carts and wagons to travel.
  • Different tales one might hear while on the road will be covered. While the adventurers can roleplay and make up their own stories, this collection is more based on the NPC’s that travel, and the stories about unbelievable myths and incredible legends will be written for your leisure.

The Second Book Of The Voyages Of The Vagabond is Known As Terrific Terrains & Terrible Travels

Click this image to go to pre launch page!

The content included in this book will include content below & more:

  • Will contain an extremely dangerous collection of different and unique bandit groups that any party could come across in their travels. These bandits will range from extremely dangerous to just wanting your cold. In addition to the 10 different bandit groups, there will be 5 NPC’s fully outlined to flush out each clan as well.
  • Will contain a unique collection of different nomads that are each as unique as the last. These nomads are not necessarily wanting a fight, but they will not shy away from one. In addition to the 10 different nomadic clans, there will be 5 NPC’s fully outlined to flush out each clan as well.
  • Will include content to truly expand your fantasy world with terrains like the arctic, canyons, highlands, forests, and more. Detailed with evocative content such as wilderness terrain features, unique landmarks, sights, sounds, smells, flora, and fauna.
  • 10 new hags will come to life along with will all the details of how they interact with their home. Those 10 unique hags are truly completed with 50 creative hags NPC's and stories and books hags would possess.
  • Will give you several unique and creative chances to throw a plethora of hags at your party. Half the fun of traveling is the interesting encounters with unique individuals, and we will not disappoint with these NPCs.
  • Different books or tales one might encounter when dealing in areas known to be the home of hags. While the adventurers can roleplay and make up their own stories, this collection is more based on the NPC’s that travel, and the tomes and books hags are known to posses

So as you can see that our core writing and content have brought you elements for worldbuilding: I hope you all can see our big scope vs. the individual project releasing.

  • Raw Earth Elements
  • Plant Ecology & Elements
  • Animal Ecology & Elements
  • Surviving the Wilds

The books of the Voyages of the Vagabond project will combine many different elements from the above books from our environmental series and expand upon the concepts in the next 4 book series known as the expedition series.

  •  Traveling the Roads & Wilds with Magnificient Mounts & Where They Go and it will be approximately 233 pages.
  •  Terrains Types & the Inhabitants with Terrific Terrains & Terrible Travels and it will be approximately 278 pages.

 Click this link to go to the pre launch page of Voyages of the Vagabond! 


The books can be obtained as either a Digital or a Physical copy, with some tiers getting both versions.

  • Digital copies are DRM and watermark-free.
  •  Any Physical copy is a hardcover 8.5"x11" book. 
  • Kickstarter Exclusives are done with premium printing

The wonderful team of the mineralogy manual will be coming back for the writing, editing, and layout!


Well, I believe that is all for now, let me know if you have any issue with shipping or any of the printed copies for Harolds or addons!

Complimentary Copies & Weavers Should be fixed
about 1 year ago – Wed, Oct 07, 2020 at 11:38:21 PM

Hey everyone, I went through and ordered complimentary copies for the content that we ran out of stock for backers! So, those will be sent out soon through DrivethruRPG. 


Additionally, Weavers is officially good on the test print and you should only have to let DrivethruRPG know that you would like a new copy. 


Ok, if you are in the United States it should be enough time for me to start looking into any issues on books that did not get sent out or were returned to me. So, just check on backerkit and see if there is tracking and if not then either USPS did not scan it in or I goofed and somehow missed you. 


Other than the handful of issues that come with every project, this one is finally done!!!!! Than you all so very much for hanging in here with us and I know it stretched out a bit longer than I wanted but I think we have one hell of a book. 


We have another project that was not up to the standards that we want for our books and we have decided to relaunch it! 

We are reforging the pantheon of Seven of Seven that features a brand-new pantheon of gods for use in any fantasy role-playing game! Inside, you will find 56 reforged Gods & Goddesses that you can use however you need in your game.

You can make them new gods, ancient gods, or perhaps powerful individuals whose affiliation remains a mysterious secret in your realm. You may be wondering what reforging means? Well, we are adding everything we wanted the Seven of Seven book to be! This means a ton of new content like:

  • Beautiful & stunning color illustrations for each deity
  • Expanded details for each deity
  • The nature of each deity in the form of personality, depiction, and interactions
  • Boon & Bane d4 tables for each deity
  • A look into the religion of each deity like sacrifices, offerings, and rituals
  • Divine organizations that worship or follow each deity
  • Holy lands and divine touched locations for each deity
  • Myths that surround each deity with mystery and intrigue
  • Celebrations revolving around deities in the form of holidays, feasts, and festivals
  • Children, figureheads, and creatures that owe their existence to a deity
  • Items blessed by each deity filled with lore and special mechanics

This is of course before adding any stretch goals during the campaign but either way, we have taken about 50 pages of content and reforged into a beautiful 240+ page expansion of divinity.


You can check this project out by joining the launch today! 


Let us know if you have any questions or concerns about anything! 

Regards

Deep Dungeon Games
