Yesterday, Andrews McMeel Publishing (AMP) announces the launch of a Kickstarter campaign for the Zweihänder RPG Starter Kit, providing all the tools needed to create fantasy characters poised to set out on an adventure of mystery and horror.  The Starter Kit is the ideal primer to introduce and teach players how to enter a fascinating fantasy world and play their first tabletop role-playing game.  The campaign will run from February 14 to February 28.  The Starter Kit will be available in the Fall of 2022.

Backers of the campaign will gain early access to the game materials, which include a Player’s Guide for creating characters, Gamemaster’s Secrets book with essential tools needed to tell fantasy adventure stories, a Secrets of Swanzi adventure and large map of Swanzi, polyhedral dice, a Gamemaster’s Screen, Folding Professional Folios, and Clue and Spell Cards.  In addition, custom-minted Fortune Tokens by Campaign Coins and a luxury wooden screen by Dog Might Games are included at the higher-backer level. The four pledge levels include: the Digital Edition, Standard Edition, The Black Box Kickstarter-only Edition, and the  Zweihänder Superfan Edition.
