A very interesting looking ancient Egyptian flavored fantasy adventure, for both 5E D&D and Swords & Wizardry, is up on Kickstarter for Necromancer Games. Originally penned by Gary Gygax, Necropolis transports the player characters to the kingdom of Khemit as they seek treasure from the Tomb of Rahotep. The project for Necropolis is past the 400% funding mark and you can reserve a copy of either flavor (5E or S&W) in digital for a $30.00 pledge or grab the hardcover for a $55.00 pledge through August 21st. Expected delivery for the digital products is this December with the hardcovers to arrive next February.
You can learn even more about Necropolis in my interview with this new edition’s author, Mark Greenberg.
About the adventure:
Based on the original work by the grandmaster himself, Gary Gygax, Necropolis is an epic desert adventure series for 5e D&D and Swords & Wizardry. Previously published by Necromancer Games as a d20 system adventure, it has been entirely updated and revised by Mark Greenberg, co-author of The World of the Lost Lands by Frog God Games. (D&D is a trademark of Wizards of the Coast; Necromancer Games and Frog God Games are not affiliated with Wizards of the Coast or the Gygax estate.)
This grand adventure is set in the Triple Kingdom of Khemit, on the continent of Libynos in the Lost Lands, the world of Frog God Games and Necromancer Games. Necropolis is designed for a party of 6–8 seasoned characters starting between 7th and 9th level and will challenge even the most experienced players.
The book you will receive includes a multiple-stage adventure taking the party from an oasis village to the depths of a long-lost tomb, together with a wealth of other material that can be used to expand a campaign into this desert land, including:
- Details of the village of Aartuat and its environs
- The Temple of Osiris, the Necropolis, and the legendary Tomb of Rahotep
- A poster map of the tomb
- Information about the Triple Kingdom of Khemit
- Wilderness encounter tables
- Dozens of NPCs, with detailed character notes
- Almost 50 new monsters
- New character options, spells, and magic items
Altogether, there is enough material for dozens of hours of play over weeks or even months of game sessions.
