Back in September, I reviewed Book 0 of Shadows of Esteren. I have devoured the rest of the books and hope to get a group of the game started next year. That being said, the Esteren Team has launched a new Kickstarter, here.
The Kickstarter has three components. First is the Occultism book. Occultism is a thema, much like their book The Monastery of Tuath. Monastery covered the religious themes of Esteren and included an adventure, and it sounds like this book will do the same for mysticism. This Kickstarter also includes the third album for Esteren, Rise. I have Of Men and Obscurities (their first album), and it is a great instrumental album that I listen to while working, in addition to using at the table. Finally, they have the Ghost Stories add-on, which includes two books The Black Moon Handbook (a kind of manual about ghosts) and Howlings (a collection of short stories).
They have made it super easy for fans of Esteren to jump in with this Kickstarter. If you already have Esteren books, look for pledges with the title ‘Farl’ and you will be getting just the new material from this Kickstarter. New to Esteren and want to get it all? Pledges with the title ‘Varigal’ are geared towards you.
The Occultism Kickstarter runs through January 21st, 2015. Check it out here if you are interested!
I will be doing one more post this year, as Christmas and New Years fall on Thursdays. Next Monday, I will look at this year in review and hopefully will be able to give some insight on where I will be going in 2015.
