Daniel and Jake are making a new tabletop roleplaying game, and we'd like your help!

What are we making?
We're making a cool new RPG called Retroscape, a decopunk sci-fi RPG set in a jazzy post-apocalyptic landscape. This RPG is a massive undertaking, as we're developing a new roleplaying engine -- the Volcanic RPG Engine, a vast world, and hundreds of NPCs, monsters, and adventures.

Why do we need your support?
Mostly for art, honestly. We're not good drawers. 

The more moneyz you give us, the more art that we can commission. We want to put out a product that can compete against behemoths like Pathfinder and D&D. The truth is, we don't make enough money on our own to make our dream products into a reality. Without your help, we're going to slowly release Retroscape with a bunch of black and white concept art. But with your help, we can get full color art, put it together beautifully, and make a game so awesome that you're going to run up to your grandmother and yell, "I backed this book on PATREON!" And your grandmother will nod, smile, and say, "That's nice, deary."

What makes this project worth it?
Daniel and Jake have been working on projects like Tephra: the Steampunk RPG and Volcanic: Legends for years. Retroscape has been in development for years now, and we're aiming to put out a product that really wows you. There are very few sci-fi or post-apocalyptic RPGs on the market, and, even among those, Retroscape is going to deliver a very unique experience. We're excited about our new Volcanic RPG Engine, and we can't wait to tell stories with you.

What do we offer?
Retroscape is currently available entirely for free at RetroscapeRPG.com. Those words, "entirely for free," make it really difficult to generate income. Basically, everyone in the world gets access to our Retroscape beta documents, and your support allows us to continue to provide that open access.

In addition, we're providing "alpha" access for certain works-in-progress. This will allow you to see a lot of items in development, concepts that we're working on, and where we're headed. Once you back us, we'll give you access to our locked google docs.

You want us to make cool things!
THANK YOU!

Alpha
$3.50 or more per month 0 patrons
For about tree fiddy, you can get access to all of our Alpha documents.

Alpha documents are ugly, old, outdated, probably won't work, and you'll get access to all of them.


(Please note: when you sign up with Alpha, it might take us a few days to build your permissions. Sorry for any delay!)

Adventure Seeker
$5.50 or more per month 3 patrons
You get our ALPHA access and our cool Discord colors. 


More importantly: every month, we're going to give you a "Guided Playtest Adventure." This is going to be a page or two of adventuring content. You play them, you give us feedback, and -- if the adventure is good -- we'll make it into a real, full adventure!

We admire your dedication.


We're going to give you commenting access on all of our working documents. That means that you can leave comments, tell us what we're doing wrong, and make suggestions for future development directly on our live documents. 


With great power comes great responsibility. 


Also, we'll send you a complimentary softcover playtest version whenever we compile one. You'll need to have been a Patreon member for at least one month prior and have a valid shipping address. We don't know how often this will be (maybe once or twice a year), but the more backers we get, the more regular this will become. Tell your friends!


Finally, we're going to make you an "Influencer" on our Discord, so you'll show up as bright green. ENJOY THE GREEN.
