People who have never played a tabletop RPG pick up the rules quickly, and experienced gamers appreciate their elegance. If you love the OSR or 5E, you will love this game. If you don't know what the OSR is, this is a great place to start.
Outcast Silver Raiders is a luxury game set which includes everything a group needs to play. This Kickstarter Edition includes a Player's Guide, a Referee's Compendium, a mammoth-sized campaign book called The Mythic North, and a poster sized map of the Mythic North. All the books are 6" x 9" hardcover volumes printed in color.
The Mythic North is a full-sized setting book with over 50 hand drawn maps, six competing and interwoven factions, 10 towns full of quests and secrets, and 88 unique encounters (mostly characters, not monsters). By rolling a few dice, referees can combine the places and encounters to create thousands of hours of emergent gameplay without ever sacrificing player agency.
Occult means that magic in the world is secret, dangerous, and somewhat unknowable. This is not a fantasy setting where magic is commonplace. This world mirrors our own, where magic is forbidden and strange. Potions are rarer than crow's teeth. Wizards are terrible beings of legend. Monsters are unique and frightening.
Medieval means that the world is a fictional mirror of medieval society. The church reigns supreme and infests all aspects of life. The gentry stand above the lower classes as super human, assured of their rightful dominance by a judgmental god. Medicine means leeches and bleeding. Education is for the rich. Might makes right. The restrictions of this era breed conflict, and conflict creates great stories.
Outcast Silver Raiders contains twenty individually illustrated dæmonic rituals. These rituals were inspired by contemporary and historical magical ceremonies, distilling elements of Goetian, Wiccan, and hermetic magical traditions. They require the collection of strange and rare reagents and following detailed physical steps. The rituals are usable in play by any character class. They are steeped in blood and mystery, and add an occult flavor to any roleplaying game.
Outcast Silver Raiders is what the televangelists, the hack investigative journalists, and the grasping Hollywood producers imagined when they caused a satanic panic around RPGs in the eighties. Daemons. Darkness. Sacrifice. Blood spilling over cracked altars in desecrated chapels. Players portray brutal warriors, clever rogues, and conniving sorcerers who reject the barbaric theocracy of medieval society to seek fortune and glory as outcasts beyond the reach of lords or God.
Outcast Silver Raiders is a work of singular vision from the creative team of:
Kim created all the illustrations. Lex created all the maps and hand-wrote all of the page titles in classic blackletter calligraphy. Isaac did all the writing and graphic design. This small team has created a work of dark focus.
Player's Guide, 64 pages, 6" x 9", hardcover, anti-scuff matte finish, full color, ribbon bookmark, silver gilded page edges, 80 lb. gloss paper stock, useful tables and charts printed in the end papers, PDF included.

Essentially it is the same as above. We adore all of you and strive to give you the best possible customer experience possible but inventory tracking not only for us but for our vendors and partners makes this almost impossible to do now.
Pre-order dates are subject to change. We get as frustrated as you do when things come up but this happens from time to time. Sometimes circumstances beyond our control will create delays. We try to communicate via social media and our weekly newsletter to keep everyone as up to date as possible.
All items in an order containing pre-orders will ship with the pre-order item once it is in stock. If you would like the other items earlier, please place a seperate order from the one containing the pre-order.
We cannot combine pre-orders with existing orders nor combine new orders with existing pre-orders.
Pre-orders will be exempt from any type of general sale.
