Thanks to the generous support of over a thousand Kickstarter backers, Spectaculars not only reached its funding goal, but also raised enough money to unlock every stretch goal along the way! A Pledge Manage for Spectaculars will go up soon, allowing backers to modify their pledges and provide shipping addresses. If you missed the Kickstarter, the Pledge Manager will also allow you to preorder the game at the discounted Kickstarter price.
As of this posting, Spectaculars has surpassed its funding goal on Kickstarter, which means that the game will be produced! A sincere thanks to everyone who has supported the game so far. But it’s not over yet! There are still three days left to support the campaign, and a whole batch of new stretch goals are ready and waiting to tear through during the last hours of the Kickstarter.
On Monday, 10/29, at 6 PM Pacific Time, Spectaculars will appear on the LoadingReadyRun Dice Friends show on Twitch. On Tuesday, 10/30, at 8 PM Pacific Time, Spectaculars will appear on the Saving Throw Show. You can take a survey now to help create the setting and the villains that will be used in those, and future, livestreams!
New Dunhaven's criminal underworld is ruled over by eight cartels, organizations of diverse backgrounds and philosophies with one similar goal: get rich by any means necessary. These cartels control the vast majority of the city's crime, and each cartel has its own turf, its own preferred illicit operations, and its own value when coming together as a crew to pull off a job.
New Dunhaven is the fantasy city that serves as the backdrop for capers, heists, and other thievery in Dusk City Outlaws. The digest-sized book that comes with the game, The Traveler's Guide to New Dunhaven, goes into detail about the city's locales, inhabitants, quirks, and dangers in detail, but we thought it might be a good idea to summarize some of the basic information about the setting here, so you can get an idea of what the city is like.
The first game from Scratchpad Publishing will be Dusk City Outlaws, a tabletop roleplaying game set in the sprawling fantasy city of New Dunhaven. Dusk City Outlaws is an out-of-the-box game, designed to be pulled off of your game shelf and played on short notice, with little prep work and time required by the players.
