My first publishing project, Kaidan RPG is a feudal Japan based setting crossed with Asian horror and being designed for use with the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game. The product line will be published as an imprint under Rite Publishing. The product line includes:
- Introductory 3 module Mini Arc for a party “gaijin” westerners visiting Kaidan
- A setting handbook with races, classes, prestige classes, feats, spells, new magic items, rules for honor, reputation, and karma, many optional rules, even multi-classing over multiple reincarnated lifetimes, and 50 monsters
- Full Adventure Path campaign going from 1st to high level play
- Possible one-off adventure modules and rules for sandbox play
Kaidan: The Gift Part 1 – Gaijin Journey is scheduled for release in July 2010, which will be soon followed by Kaidan: The Gift Part 2 – Dim Spirit and Part 3 – The Hidden in the months following, with efforts to getting the Rules Handbook shortly after that.
The Gift will be written by Jonathon McNaulty, of the adventure writers from Kobold Quarterly and Open Design Project. The cover designs are by Jan Pospisil. Interior art by Simon Turnbull and monster illustrations by Mark Hyzer.
This is the project of Michael K. Tumey – creator, developer, editor, illustrator and cartographer with assistance by the Rite Publishing creative staff.
