Creatures of Vathis: Volume One – On Kickstarter: 2/1/2018
Creatures of Vathis: Volume One – Kickstarter Announcement!
Starting on 2/1/2018, Starcalled Studios will be launching a Kickstarter aimed at printing our next supplement titled “Creatures of Vathis: Volume One”. This supplement will be a 150 page hardcover book detailing the creatures and threats inside the nations of Vathis within the Zodiac Empires Campaign Setting.
We chose to work on a bestiary around a year or so ago, primarily due to feedback from the community, as they wished for us to detail the enemies of the Shattered Hand, the living eldria creatures that reside within the Shardlands, and the remains of the ancient Anuald dominion that once spread from Erygis to Vavaire.
Inside the tome you will find over one hundred creatures detailed for both The Pathfinder Roleplaying Game and D&D 5th Edition.
These rules systems will be separated into two books. Each books will contain identical art and creatures, but the rules system will vary per book. We decided to release our Creatures tome for both rules systems to continue to support these systems as we did with the Campaign Setting and Player’s Guide.
All interior artwork will be done by the single hand of Chris Stoll.
Chris originally provided the Campaign Setting with the initial artwork for the Eldricorn, Koalari, Shywhale, and Isril Elk, all of which will be featured on their own one page spreads within Volume One. The cover art for the tome is still in progress, but will follow a similar style to the Zodiac Empires Campaign Setting, in the art nouveau style that follows the feel of Vathis in the current age.
Calling all Playtesters!
Since the beginning of December we have reached out to the roleplaying communities of both Pathfinder and D&D 5th Edition, our players and GMs, and various other groups to begin reading through and playtesting the creatures featured within the bestiary. Playtesting is still open for those who wish to join, and if you would like to accompany the adventurers braving the numbers you may do so by following this link and joining our Discord. Playtesters will have direct access to the design team, who will gladly address your concerns directly.
In the meantime, work has been completed on a new website to represent our now-expanding company. This website is located at StarcalledStudios.com, and is the result of many long hours by James Williams, a good friend of ours. The Wednesday night stream of Starfinder will also be on hiatus as we begin to stream encounters centered around the creatures that we will be releasing within Creatures of Vathis: Volume One. You may find the stream at Twitch.tv/StarcalledStudios. Be sure to follow for both updates and As Far As You Can Tell, our Saturday night Pathfinder stream.
