31 hours to go in my LotFP campaign!

Thirty one hours to go in the funding campaign for my LotFP campaign! We’ve still got a ways to go, so let’s try to make things a bit more interesting:

* For anyone who contributes at the Grab Bag level ($100), I’ll do a custom finished black and white ink character illustration.
* For anyone who contributes at The Faithful or higher ($180), I’ll do a finished color character illustration. Backers will receive signed originals.
* This is retroactive for funders who have already backed at the Grab Bag or higher. This is also open to people who have backed at lower levels and upgrade to Grab Bag or higher.

That might seem like a lot of money, but consider that with three adventures now funded you’ll be receiving quite a lot for your money in terms of adventures and bonus supplemental material. This has the potential to be dangerous for me in terms of time commitment, but I really want a chance to write this adventure, so let’s see if we can make me regret this commitment.

Let’s see if we can make this thing happen!

If you’d like a reminder as to what the adventure is about, you can check out this post on Gaming as Women about the inspiration behind my campaign. You can also check out my website to view a selection of previously published illustration work, as well as looking at the gender swap tag here on this blog for more recent examples.

New GaW post & Indiegogo campaign updates

Hi, folks! It’s been a busy few weeks here in the land of the wundergeek.

Thing the first: new post!

I have a new post up on Gaming as Women about imposter syndrome and about how hard it is for me to give myself permission to be awesome. Imposter syndrome is something that disproportionately affects women, but given that it’s something that anyone with particularly low self-esteem can struggle with I think it’s an important geek issue in general. Please do give it a read, and if you know any female creators whose work you enjoy, please make an effort to support them and re-affirm that you value their work.

Thing the second: Updates to the Indiegogo campaign for my adventure, We Who Are Lost

It’s worth noting that there have been some updates to the funding campaign for me to write an adventure for Lamentations of the Flame Princess. There is a new funding level that includes a printed booklet on how to convert the adventures to 3.PF, but more importantly there is a pretty fantastic retail support level that is a great value for retailers interested in stocking campaigns. It’s worth taking another look at.

Thing the third: We Who Are Lost posts on Gaming as Women and Building Rome in a Day

I’ve got a new post about the inspiration behind We Who Are Lost that is going to be going up on Gaming as Women in the next few days, as soon as I polish it up a bit more and do some final edits. If you’re curious about the concepts behind the adventure and what is inspiring me to write it, I hope you’ll check it out. I’ll be following that up with a post on my art blog, Building Rome in a Day about the basic nuts and bolts of the adventure concept as well. And if that wasn’t enough, I’ll be doing an interview this week with Jennifer Steen of the Jennisodes.

I won’t spam every single update individually here, but if you want to follow the progress of the campaign, I’ll be tweeting about it. If you haven’t followed me yet and want to, my handle is @wundergeek.

Help me fund this campaign so I can write a fantasy horror adventure for LotFP!

[Like horror? Like old-school retroclone gaming? Then you should support my campaign to write and illutrate a horror adventure for Lamentations of the Flame Princess!

I’m super-excited to be able to announce this, because it’s going to be incredibly awesome!]

Lamentations of the Flame Princess presents We Who Are Lost by Anna Kreider

The emperor’s health is failing and with it, his grasp on the reigns of the realm. The governors feud among themselves in a desperate struggle to accede to his throne when the time comes, doing nothing about the warlords who ravage the countryside. With the land descending into chaos, is it any wonder that the people turn to ancient myth and superstition for comfort?

At least, you had always assumed it to be superstition. But now, you are not so sure…

A desperate village looks to you to be their salvation. Beset by bandits and murderers, they have invoked legend and unleashed a horrible force upon the world – one terrible beyond mortal comprehension. Without your help, they will surely be consumed. But how can you save them if you, yourself, are dragged into insanity?

We Who Are Lost is a an adventure in which you will tell stories of madness, terror, and terrible decisions.
