A comic. An RPG module. All-ages appeal. Yup, this is an official Good Idea.
The first collection of Sidekick Quests! The all-ages web comic is also an adventure module for Sidekick Quests: The Role-Playing Game.
Sidekick Quests: The Secret of the Sewer Wizard is James Stowe’s very first Kickstarter and the first time Sidekick Quests the webcomic has been collected in a print Graphic Novel. With your help this Kickstarter will create a 96 page book that collects the first comic storyline, The Secret of the Sewer Wizard, and also provides game rules allowing you to play out Secret of the Sewer Wizard as a roleplaying game campaign adventure. The print version of the Secret of the Sewer Wizard has revised artwork throughout with updated colors, dialog and text. There will also be 10 bonus pages of never before seen comics that show what happens after the original adventure ended. The book will also serve as Sidekick Quests the Roleplaying Game’s very first adventure module. The adventure consists of three quests and two encounters that can be played together as one complete story or separately as stand alone games sessions. Anyone that backs the PDF or print versions of the book also get a digital bundle of all the Sidekick Quests rules, quests, characters and advancements that have released online already.
A breakdown of the adventure contents are as follows:
Clean out the Dungeon Quest asks PCs to help a down on his luck Master of Dungeons named Carl perform some Spring cleaning of a castle basement that is full of monsters and maybe even haunted. Includes: rules on running the quest, 1 quest handout, 1 Ghost NPC sheet, 1 Dust Bunnies NPC sheet, 1 Vacuum Monsters NPC sheet, and an illustrated Map of the Dungeon
The Homunculus Encounter introduces the mysterious Homunculus, servant of the Sewer Wizard. What will happen when PCs meet this foul little creature? Includes: rules on running the encounter, 1 Homunculus NPC sheet
The Search the Sewers Quest finds the PCs deep underground, trapped by the terrifying, but generally understood Sewer Wizard. Can they recover their missing doorknocker without being turned into bunnies? Includes: rules on running the quest, 1 quest handout, 1 Sewer Wizard NPC sheet, 1 Sewer Rat NPC sheet, and a fully illustrated Map of the Sewer
The Professor Pendarva Encounter brings a full fledged adventurer to the rescue. But is this Professor friend… or foe? Includes: rules on running the quest, 1 Professor Pendarva NPC sheet
The Escape to the Surface Quest follows the action of the new 10 page comic and follows the action that happens after original comic ended. Can the PCs make it back to Fairevale? Only if they make it past pirates, trolls and a giant octopus! Includes: rules on running the quest, 1 quest handout, 1 Zombie Pirate NPC sheet, 1 Cave Troll NPC sheet, 1 Giant Octopus NPC sheet, and a fully illustrated Map of the Caverns Below Fairevale.
Now I want to make sure that everyone understands The Secret of the Sewer Wizard is just an Adventure for the already available Print and Play Sidekick Quests the Roleplaying Game but… that is okay even if you don’t known a copy of the game already. Why? Because if you get a copy of The Secret of the Sewer Wizard (digital or physical) you also get everything that has ever been released for Sidekick Quests the RPG in the Digital Bundle.
