Updated Dragon 5E PDF, Jewel of the Indigo Isles Updates, Battlezoo Previews
20 days ago – Tue, Jul 26, 2022 at 07:59:28 AM

Battlezoo Ancestries: Dragons for 5E PDF, Updated to Version 4 

Today we updated the Battlezoo Ancestries: Dragons for 5E PDF to version 4 (the Pathfinder version remains the same). Everyone should download this version from their account as it's the most up-to-date version and fixed a few vital items from the prior versions. This is the same version that is being printed, so it's the most accurate version of the book. As always, you should have received an email telling you that the book was released via PDF, but if you didn't, you can log in to your Backer account to download the PDF today. You can also access your account here if you are having issues with the link above: https://www.backerkit.com/are_you_a_backer. We will also be updating the VTT to reflect these changes as well.

 Battlezoo Ancestries: Dragons for Pathfinder Hardcover Update

The books should be arriving in our warehouse within the next two weeks. As soon as they arrive, we will begin the fulfillment of these books to backers. The 5E will follow right behind this one. For those also waiting for the Jewel of the Indigo Isles hardcovers, we are in the process of setting up split shipments to allow for backers to receive these books as they arrive without having to wait for the Jewel books to be completed. More on this shortly. 

The Indigo Isles!

Jewel of the Indigo Isles Update

Currently, the playtesters are reviewing all the files for final updates. We are currently working on the following for release to all Jewel backers:

  •  FREE Jewel of the Indigo Isles Player's Guide -- this is a free PDF with all the information a player needs to build a character perfect for the Jewel of the Indigo Isles adventure path! With advice on the most fitting character options, special backgrounds that have links to the adventures, and even a full-length gazetteer for the starting city of Rumplank, the player's guide is full of useful information.
  •  Indigo Isles Character Guide -- this book outlines the various character options for players to experience the ancestries, specific familiars, archetype feats, deities, and more from the Indigo Isles! Plus, with Rumplank and Seaview gazetteers, you can learn about two of the largest settlements in the Indigo Isles.
  •  Jewel of the Indigo Isles -- This is the main adventure! The characters begin by accepting a royal request to complete a magical map but are soon swept up in a much larger quest that will shape the Indigo Isles forever. We plan to start releasing this book in chapters to backers, starting with the first book, Search for the Missing Map by Patrick Renie. This will allow backers to start to play the adventure right away while we continue to finish up the second and third adventures.

Look for these PDFs to be released shortly to all Jewel backers!

Inside the hard leather case is a sponge cushion specially designed to hold your "best" set of dice. Treat your favorite set of dice to the carrying case they deserve! Make sure you put in your order within the first 48 hours from July 26th to July 28th to receive this free hard leather dice case!

Battlezoo Eldamon Preview

Befriend, Train, Battle, and Evolve over 160 monsters with 10+ distinctive elements with Battlezoo Eldamon! Eldamon are ancient creatures slightly out of phase with reality that like to meld into items, creatures, and locations. You can add them seamlessly into any setting, allowing characters to interact with and collect them without disrupting the established adventure or requiring the GM to rebuild or change the encounters.

Control and channel eldamon using two new 5E and Pathfinder classes! Anyone can befriend eldamon and have them fight playful mock duels with each other, but only the eldamon trainer class can phase them into our world in order to use them in combat against deadly threats. Meanwhile, as an elemental avatar, you have a powerful but quiescent eldamon melded into you for a long period of time, gaining the strange abilities eldamon possess for yourself. Battlezoo Eldamon is perfect for monster trainer lovers of all ages. The rules are simple enough to be a great way to introduce children to the game but deep enough to offer a variety of combinations for strategic players.

Inside the Battlezoo Eldamon you will find:

  •  Over 160 eldamon, up to 240 (or more) with stretch goals
  • 10-20 elements, each with a unique playstyle, special moves, and other abilities for your eldamon to learn
  •  The eldamon trainer class, which befriends eldamon and phases them in to fight as described above
  •  The elemental avatar class embodies an eldamon and manifests its power as described above
  •  Rules, guidelines, and tables allow you to customize the experience of adding eldamon to your game, allowing everything from a completely hands-off approach to tight integration with the story
  •  Setting information and variants to easily include eldamon in any setting, whether they are rare or invisible to most people (explaining why no one has mentioned them before) or ubiquitous and well-known by all

 Eldamon Battles Card Game Preview

The Eldamon Battles card game is a fast-paced game of cleverness, skill, and guessing your opponent's decisions, designed to mirror a D&D or Pathfinder eldamon duel but run faster and more strategically in about 5 to 10 minutes.

Eldamon Battles isn't about luck of the draw. If you buy the set, you get every card you need and don't have to chase rares -- you start with all your cards available to play. To win, you need to guess what your opponent is going to do and play your cards in the right order with good timing to eke out an advantage. You can even play solo by facing off against an opponent who shuffles the cards and plays them at random!

Each set gives you eldamon from two different elements, the cards for those elements' abilities, and some universal abilities you can use with any eldamon. You can use the quick play suggested ability sets for a fast 1-on-1 game in the middle of the session, or mix and match to create a versatile team and engage in a longer battle with multiple eldamon!

Eldamon Battles non-collectible card game features

  • Season 1 starts in 2023 with Fire & Ice
  •  Throughout 2023 five core decks will be released, each deck focusing on two elemental powers and includes multiple eldamon reflecting these elements
  •  One deck has enough cards for two players, or you can mix and match decks to create a unique eldamon battles lineup
  • A standalone game that can be played in multiple ways and with multiple people
  • Play a quick, fun game that can be completed in 5-10 minutes
  • Or play using the competitive tournament method to play with multiple eldamon
  • Eldamon Battles will also work directly with Battlezoo Eldamon and allow Eldamon Trainer to utilize the deck when utilizing their eldamon powers
  • By pledging for the Eldamon Battles card game, you will automatically be invited into the private playtest!
     

Battlezoo Ancestries: Year of Monster Preview

Go beyond the ordinary and make your 2023 a year you'll never forget with Battlezoo Ancestries: Year of Monsters. From the mind of Pathfinder 2nd edition co-creator Mark Seifter, who brought you playable dragons and playable dungeons in the previous Battlezoo Ancestries volumes, Year of Monsters delivers a new and unusual monster ancestry each month for a full year, for 12 in total, plus a compilation book at the end with additional bonus content that you can get in touch and help decide!

Explore an entire Year of Monsters throughout all of 2023:

  •  One new ancestry/race will be released each month throughout all of 2023.
  • Each ancestry/race is designed to provide a unique playable monster for any 5E or Pathfinder 2e game. 
  • At the end of the year, the Battlezoo Ancestries: Year of Monsters Compilation book will be released, containing all the previous entries, plus more!
  • Automatically includes the Foundry VTT module for 5E or Pathfinder 2e that automatically updates every month along with the newly released ancestry/race.

Battlezoo Bestiary: Strange and Unusual Preview

Are you ready for the weirdest and most unexpected award-winning monsters around? Battlezoo Bestiary: Strange and Unusual is the long-awaited effort of the 2021 RPG Superstar contest, in which hundreds of monster fans and aspiring designers submitted their most unusual creature ideas to be judged by both professional RPG Designers and the community. Following the competition’s extended hiatus, Paizo licensed Roll For Combat to run this exciting contest, and this is the result! In addition to the monsters, you'll find an exciting expansion to the monster parts system from the original Battlezoo Bestiary and more!

Inside the Battlezoo Bestiary: Strange & Unusual, you will find:

  •  150 RPG Superstar monsters separated by copper, silver, gold, platinum, and the grand prize winners
  •  Aberrant Soul archetype/subclass for characters who are slowly transforming into an aberration!
  • New options for the Monster Parts crafting system 
  • New rules on how to refine monster parts into custom weapons, armor, shields, skill items, magic items, and more 
  •  New imbuing categories, including properties for all eldamon elements that don't currently have them (air, earth, water, and many stretch goal elements) and weird ones like the tentacular "extension" imbued property.
  • New character backgrounds
  •  New magic items based on the RPG Superstar monsters
  • 150+ illustrations

Shipping Has Begun for Battlezoo Bestiary 5E!

As quickly as the books arrive we ship them out!

Battlezoo Bestiary for 5E — The books are starting to arrive in a steady stream from China and we just received our Battlezoo Besitary 5E books this week. For those who have ordered (only) the Bestiary for 5E (both standard and special editions), we will start shipping those shortly. If you have other books in your order, we will be waiting for the additional books to arrive in order to put your books into a single shipment. However, if you really want your book now and want to split your shipment into two shipments, please contact us directly and we'll work with you on splitting your shipping into multiple orders.

The book is in the warehouse!

Battlezoo Ancestries: Dragons for 5E PDF, Updated to Version 3 

Today we updated the PDF to version 3, everyone should download this version from their account as it's the most up-to-date version and fixed a few vital items from the prior versions. This is the same version that is being printed so it's the most accurate version of the book. As always, you should have received an email telling you that the book was released via PDF, but if you didn't, you can log in to your Backer account to download the PDF today.

Battlezoo Ancestries: Dragons 5E Foundry VTT Module Released

A few weeks ago we completed the Foundry VTT module for Battlezoo Ancestries: Dragons 5E and keys were sent to everyone who pre-ordered it. As of now, Foundry modules for both the Battlezoo Bestiary and Dragons have been released for 5E and Pathfinder. We are still working on the other modules as they are more difficult to implement, but if you wish to change an order from Roll20 to Foundry VTT, please contact us and we will switch over your order (as they are both the same price).

Jewel of the Indigo Isles Update

The good news, this will probably be the largest, most comprehensive, most detailed adventure path you have ever seen. For comparison, an "average" word count for a Pathfinder Adventure Path ranging from Levels 1-11 is somewhere around 95,000 words. Jewel of the Indigo Isles is clocking in at around 215,000 words?!? And that does NOT include the monster stat blocks, the new ancestries, the backgrounds, new magic items, details on The Balance, and so many other items.

Altogether, this adventure is looking to be over 320,000 words in length with additional supporting materials... we might have overdone it a bit.

The bad news is that we are still working on it as this thing is a monstrous beast. It is close to being done, but because of the sheer size and complexity of this adventure, we want to make sure everything is done right. But we are continuing to work on this and will probably release this in stages as it's complete at this point so that people can start to plan and play this fantastic adventure.

In the meantime, here is another amazing map from Blando, the isle of Goldcrop where you begin your adventure.

Goldcrop Isle, where you begin your adventure in the town of Rumplank

Our Next Kickstarter Launches on July 26th!

In just a few weeks our next Kickstarter is launching, and this one is going to be a monster! The good news is that we learned a lot from our first one, and added Mark Seifter to the staff full-time to ensure that we get everything we propose out on time. A few updates to this Kickstarter since our last announcement. 

The Free Giveaway, Protect Your "Special" Dice (You Know Which Those Are) 

Free hard leather dice case for the first 48 hours to all physical orders!

Last time we gave away a soft leather dice case. This year we're giving away a hard leather dice case to all physical orders during the first 48 hours! Inside the hard leather case is a sponge cushion specially designed to hold your "best" set of dice. Treat your favorite set of dice to the carrying case they deserve! Make sure you put in your order within the first 48 hours from July 26th to July 28th to receive this free hard leather dice case!

 Did Someone Say Eldamon Plushies?

These are the prototype eldamon plushies you can befriend and take home!

Sure we're offering 19 books, dice, minis, and other surprises, but wouldn't it be cool if you could play with a "life-sized" eldamon plushie at the game table while you summon/collect various eldamon during play? Well, we got you covered! Several tiers will offer multiple 8" plushies as part of your order and these plushies are of the highest quality... many Kickstaters have offered plushies of this quality as just the Kickstarter itself. For us, this is simply one of the many items you will receive as part of your order! 

But wait, there's more!

Everyone Loves Minis!

The "plushie tier" will also include 10 Battle Form Eldamon Minis!

We said this was a huge Kickstarter, and we weren't kidding! At the "plushie tiers," you will also receive 10 Battle Form Eldamon resin minis. These minis can be used in both your 5E or Pathfinder games (as ANYONE can befriend an Eldamon and summon their battle form) or the Eldamon Battles card game. 

But wait, there's more!

Embossed Hard Leather 100-Page Eldadex Notebooks!

Make sure to record your Eldamon collection in these embossed, hard-leather notebooks!

Did we mention this was going to be a massive Kickstarter? In addition to the books, the plushies, the minis, and the dice, we are also offering embossed hard leather 100-page Eldadex books as well! Use these books to record your Eldamon findings or just as regular notebooks, but they are sure to impress!

Believe it or not, there are yet more surprises coming... In the meantime, if you want to learn more about the various books and offerings for your Pathfinder and 5E games, check out the interviews below:

Jewel of the Indigo Isles Minis!

Jewel of the Indigo Isles Miniatures — After a few false starts on getting these completed, we managed to find an amazing group of artists who create nearly all of the minis for WizKids! We also found another fantastic group to create the STL supports on each mini to ensure they print cleanly and easily. As for the minis themselves, we are printing them using a mixture of Phrozen Aqua 4k Grey and Obsidian Black Tenacious to allow for an excellent balance of durability and detail in each mini. We have tested printing them, shipping them through the mail, and dropping them, and they have passed all of our tests. They are ready to go!

Jewel of the Indigo Isles miniatures, the finished version is on the left, and STL files are on the right.

Rumplank, the starting location for the Jewel of the Indigo Isles adventure!

Jewel of the Indigo Isles for PF2 and 5E — This book is nearly complete and we are racing through the final steps. A few updates:

  •  The entire adventure has been completed and has gone through playtesting! Are in the process of final editing and layout, but this book is looking to be around 400+ pages in length, so this is taking time as it's a massive book.

Battlezoo Ancestries: Dragons PF2 for Foundry VTT is is Now Available! And More Updates!
3 months ago – Tue, May 03, 2022 at 12:00:32 AM

Battlezoo Ancestries Dragons PF2 for Foundry VTT is Now Available!

Celebrate, now you can make a Dragon PC in Foundry!

Battlezoo Ancestries: Dragons for PF2 and Foundry VTT —We know that a lot of people have been waiting patiently for the Dragon Ancestry to be implemented in Foundry VTT, and after a lot of testing and work, we are proud to release this module today! Everyone who pre-ordered the module should have received a key by now by email. If you haven't ordered this module yet, make sure to get it now before the price increases!

Battlezoo Ancestries: Dragons for Pathbuilder 2e —Or course we wanted to make it as simple as possible for Pathfinder players to create a dragon PC for their game, so we teamed up with Pathbuilder 2e once again to have all the Dragon Ancestry rules implemented directly into their tool. And best of all, it's completely free! Make sure to check it out today! (and also be on the lookout for implementation in the Wander's Guide as well!)

Battlezoo Ancestries: Dragons for 5E PDF and Hardcover Book — The work for this book has been completed by our 5E and we are currently in the process of editing and playtesting. We will start to do the layout of the book shortly and hope to have it out either by the end of the month or early June, depending upon playtester feedback. As always, we will keep you up-to-date on the progress as it gets closer to release, but we are in the home stretch!

Battlezoo Bestiary for Pathfinder Second Editon Hardcover Book — The boat from China just pulled into port today. Here is the plan for this book and all future hardcover books:

  • The shipment needs to clear customs.
  • After customs, the books will be shipped to our warehouse in Portland, OR.
  • During this time, we will put out the last call to lock in your shipping address on your orders.
  • Anyone who ordered just the Battlezoo Bestiary for PF2 will have their book shipped to them right away.

We expect to put out additional updates as the books reach each step in the process to keep everyone up to date.

Battlezoo Bestiary for Pathfinder 5E Hardcover Book — The boat from China just left port and is heading to the States! We expect that this book will probably ship approximately 6 weeks after the PF2 book. Right now, there isn't much we can do other than wait for the ship to arrive in port.

Look at those awesome proofs!

Battlezoo Ancestries: Dragons for Pathfinder Second Editon Hardcover Book — We just received the signature proofs from the printer today and will be approving them shortly. The book should then be printed and shipped in a few weeks and will be right behind the Battlezoo Bestiary for 5E hardcovers.

Jewel of the Indigo Isles for PF2 and 5E — There are a lot of updates for this product as we are nearing completion of the book (finally). Here is the overview:

  • The entire adventure has been completed and is going through final editing and review. There are three adventures in total and the first two are complete, we are currently working on the third adventure, and that should be completed in a few weeks.
  • At the same time, we have David N. Ross and our entire 5E working on converting the PF2 adventure for 5E. David was responsible for converting Paizo's Abomination Vaults from PF2 to 5E and we are ecstatic to have him on the team doing our conversion.
  • What this means is that the 5E adventure should be completed right after the PF2 version, so we will be able to release them at nearly the same time!
  • We are also working on the Player's Guide, which will contain ... a lot. All the new ancestries, new backgrounds, new archetypes, information about The Balance, history of the Isles and so much more. This book will be completed at the same time as the adventure with both being released at the same time.
  • As always, once the adventure is complete, we will release it right away to everyone as a PDF and then work on the hardcover book immediately after.
  • A little FYI, there are over a hundred pieces of art for this adventure, dozens of high-quality maps, and the main adventure is approximately 200k words in length. We are working really, really hard to make this an epic classic adventure, and I hope the wait will show in the final product.
  • One note, the cloth treasure map for the Indigo Isles will be printed at the same time as the hardcover books.
The Orpok mini!

Set of 8 Printable STL Mini Files & Resin Miniatures — We had 5 of the 8 ancestries done, but then we hit a snag and our artist had to cancel the project. The good news is that we found a team, the same team that does most of the WizKids minis, and they are finishing up the project! They recently finished the orpok mini as you can see above, and they are now quickly finishing the other two. Once all are complete, we can release the STL files and will have the miniatures printed and added to everyone's orders as their books go out.

Hunter's Dice Case, Die-Cut Vinyl Monster Stickers, & Hard Enamel Monster Pins — All of these items are all in the warehouse and ready to go! They will automatically be included in your order if you are set to receive them.

Battlezoo Ancestries: Dungeons for 5E — You didn't think we forgot about you, did we? As you might remember, Mark and I created the Battlezoo Ancestries: Dungeons for PF2 in one day for April Fools' Day. Of course, we need to create the same ancestry for 5E, and we are hard at work finishing this up. We should have it released for free at the same time as the Dragon Ancestry book for 5E.

PaizoCon 2022 — And finally, both Stephen Glicker and Mark Seifter will be attending PaizoCon in person this year, including a few others from the Roll For Combat team. We will be presenting in multiple panels and Stream each of these panels on our YouTube channel for all to see. So stay tuned for additional information about these panels in the very near future!


Okay, that was a lot. As always if you have any questions please write us and we'll get back to you right away!
