Originally published to critical acclaim for D&D 3.x — it was based on Monte’s own Third Edition playtest campaign — the 2006 Ptolus: City by the Spire was the greatest flourish of his career to that time. With 350 illustrations and more than 100 color maps, the book’s size matched the grandeur of its production. We presented the 3.x version in September 2014 (predating this blog) and again in May 2016. Now Ptolus thrives again in new versions for Fifth Edition and the Cypher System, funded in a spectacular February 2020 Kickstarter campaign. As before, the Ptolus core campaign setting book is lavishly produced, with abundant maps and illustrations, multiple indices, heavy cross-referencing, hyperlinking and bookmarking, and quick-access summaries. With this single book, and the play aids in this bargain-priced offer, you can take starting player characters all the way to epic play — twice over.
Ten percent of your payment (after gateway fees) goes to this Ptolus Cypher offer’s pandemic-related charity, Direct Relief. Direct Relief sends protective gear and critical care medications to health workers, with emergency deliveries to medical facilities across the US and to regional response agencies across the world.
This new Ptolus Cypher offer climbs the Spire and disappears, together with the Cypher 10A Megabundle, Monday, June 6.
