Backroads hit its funding goal on Kickstarter; however, we only hit our first stretch goal. Now, we've set up a preorder page on itch, and we thought we'd itchfund to see if we can hit any more goals before the game releases . We're also on itch for players or fans who are ethically opposed to pledging via Kickstarter and missed the campaign.

Post-Campaign Goals

If you grab a Backroads PDF or hardcover during the Kickstarter or through the itch sale, you'll get any of the bonuses that we reach below - for free. 

  • Stretch goal 1. $500: Bonus Adventure (PDF)  + VTT Tokens 
  • Stretch goal 2. $1,000: Solitaire Adventure (PDF)
  • Stretch goal 3. $1,500: Backroads Short-Fiction Piece (PDF) + Solo Journal Game (PDF)
  • Stretch goal 4. $3,000: Short-Fiction Collection (PDF)

Itch goal 1. 

$500: Bonus Adventure (PDF) + NPC/Monster Tokens

What do we get? A bonus adventure which can be used to connect a New Orleans game (Backwater) to St. Louis (Backroads). In this adventure, someone has made several attempts on the life of a prominent citizen, Hamilton King of the Providence Company's New Orleans branch. Your characters are hired to investigate... and to keep King alive. 

Itch goal 2. 

$1,000: Solitaire Adventure

What do we get? You'll get a solitaire adventure set in New Orleans, which continues the "Eulalie's Curse" solitaire. A corpse washes ashore along the banks of the Mississippi in New Orleans, and it causes quite a stir when the gathered crowd realizes who it is... 

Itch goal 3. 

$1,500: Backroads Short-Fiction Piece (PDF) + Solo Journal Game (PDF)

What do you get? A solo journal game, which can be used to simulate travel between destinations in the Outskirts. It can be played outside a campaign for fun or within a campaign. It's another cool travel option for Backroads, which already has basic rules for exploration as well as for travel montages and hexcrawls. All of the options are at your fingertips. 

Do you love the Backwater universe? At this stretch goal, all backers receive a piece of short fiction (ca. 60 pgs or 15k words) written by our very own Alex Johnson, set in post-apocalyptic St. Louis.

Itch goal 4. 

$3,000: Short-Fiction Collection (PDF)

If we hit this stretch, you'll receive between three or more works of short fiction set in the Backwater universe, including New Orleans and St. Louis. Pieces will be written by Alex Johnson, Asa Olson, and a guest writer. 

Includes the following items:

Explore the Outskirts. Travel its backroads. Brave the ruins of St Louis.
Three Miniature American-gothic Horror Adventures in Post-apocalyptic St. Louis
