Prize Roundup
This announcement was posted on 8/25/2015 10:00:00 AM.


The Prize Support just keeps rolling in for AetherCon IV from Publishers and Creators of games and game supplements who are excited to get their products in front of YOU, the gamer.  First Ones Entertainment is bringing HUGE stacks of PDF game supplements for pre-registered Players and GMs.  Players will receive four items that include an adventure, a campaign guide, and a guide to unique classes based on the American Indians.  GMs will receive five items that include adventures, lore, and a guide to creating exciting treasures for all RPGs.  Most exciting of all, though, is the opportunity to win a softcover copy of their newest product, the Tyrants of Saggakar Players’ Guide, signed by the author.  You can get more information at First Ones Entertainment.

Bringing you innovative, cutting-edge RPG products is one of the best parts of AetherCon Prize Support.  That is why we are very excited to announce our most recent addition to the list of supporters, Immersion Studios.  Immersion Studios is deep into their Kickstarter project for the first setting in the Immersion RPG System, Infected!  An intense, flexible ruleset that encourages player ingenuity and provides a dynamic combat system that keeps the game fast-paced, Infected is set a few years after a global zombie outbreak has been controlled.  Outlier bands of Infected are still out there, as are bandits, thieves, con artists, warlords, and some who just want to burn it all down and start over.  Some of our Pre-Registered GMs will be receiving a PDF copy of the Core Rules, and FIVE AetherCon IV attendees will receive a softcover copy of the Infected Sampler, containing Quick-Start Rules, original artwork, and an adventure with pre-generated characters.  But if you didn’t get pre-registered as a GM, you can still get the Core Rules PDF by supporting the Kickstarter; and you can learn more at Immersion Studios.

Want to stay up to date on all the prize bundles?  Head over to the AetherCon Prize Hall.
