Commentary On The Buried Zikurat by Dark Naga Adventures (Kevin Watson) Kickstarter For Your Old School Campaigns

Good morning, well it seems that while I was away from blogging for a few hours Kevin Watson has been busy getting his next fifth edition kickstarter going.The Buried Zikuratby Dark Naga Adventures (Kevin Watson)This is the next installment in the The Lost Temple of Forgotten Evil series  which successfully funded back in February.  Swords and Stitchery caught up with Kevin back then and got into the heart and soul of Dark Naga his company's vision for sword and sorcery.  
Now Dark Naga is back with band new Kickstarter for  The Buried Zikurat;"The Buried Zikurat is an adventure for three to seven characters between levels six and eight. It is designed for use with Fifth Edition version of Gary and Dave’s RPG. It can be adapted to any fantasy RPG."

You can fund The Buried Zikurat
Right Over Here

The premise feels like its one that might work in just about any old school OSR sword & sorcery rpg & it sounds promising;"
The clay mining operation at Caford has discovered a large step pyramid, or zikurat. This imposing structure was buried completely in the clay sheet they have been mining for decades to make brick and other ceramic products. The local miners see what they think is an obvious entrance, but cannot get past the slab of stone. A call for aid is sent to the capital city of Meawold, and the party is sent to investigate.
Could this be one of the Nexuses that traded goods from the subterranean Land of Night to the surface world? 
Places where treasures of the subterranean kingdoms, like mithril weapons, were traded for surface goods. Bastions of trade that were lost during the fall of the First Age of Man. Why has it been dormant for almost two millennia? What lies within? Is it a threat to Caford, or the Kingdom of Meawold as a whole?

If they can get inside, the party will have to navigate millennia old magic locks and security sentinels to find answers to these questions and more within The Buried Zikurat.  "

Because this is a fifth edition adventure conversion shouldn't be too hard at all. My interest stems from the science fantasy aspects coupled with the exploration & pulpy bits. Dark Naga has a proven track record and its nice to see that the author/designer is pay attention to the little details of the Buried Zikurat. Many of their products have a dark ages feel mixed in with a good dose of Lovecraftian elements.

My own interest is peaked because their adventures can easily be seamlessly inserted into an existing campaign & will work quite nicely with the Astonishing Swordsmen & Sorcerers of Hyperborea game or any of the myriad sword & sorcery style clones that are on the market currently. The continuation of the storyline of The Lost Temple of Forgotten Evil is an essential bonus especially given the science fantasy element. I really enjoy Kevin Watson's writing & design work. So I would love to see this addition to the adventure line of The Lost Temple of Forgotten Evil continued.

So take a look open up your pocket books for the 
The Buried Zikurat by Dark Naga Adventures (Kevin Watson).  This is going to be one of those Kickstarters to watch! Also there will be an OSR adventure  in on the Buried Zigurat. According to the author;" There will be a PDF/PoD OSR edition. It will be a separate edition. The stretch goal will be a print run with detached old school covers for the OSR edition."

So this looks like its going to be a Kickstarter to back
& its one I'm going to be keeping a close eye on!
