Level Up: Advanced 5th Edition Fantasy RPG Up On Kickstarter

If you're playing or read about Dungeons & Dragons 5th edition and just want... more... then this might be the Kickstarter for you. It's for Level Up: Advanced 5th Edition and it takes the rules most of us know and makes them deeper.

From the campaign:

Welcome to Level Up, a standalone game which enhances the 5E ruleset which you know and love. If you love 5E but would like a little more depth to the rules, Level Up is the new game for you!

After two years of extensive public playtests and surveys involving thousands of players, and input from our active community, we have completely overhauled the 5E game system. From redesigned classes to a full exploration pillar, we've revisited every aspect of the game to present this new standalone game, fully compatible with the 5th Edition core rules.

  •  Core set. The core set consists of three books -- the Adventurer's Guide (characters, and the core rules), Trials & Treasure (magic items, exploration and journeys, and gamemastery), and the Monstrous Menagerie (monsters!) 
  •  A little more. For those who want more, there are two more books -- Adventures in ZEITGEIST (a world/setting book) and Mythological Figures & Maleficent Monsters (a book of legendary heroes and villains from our own world's myths and cultures).
  • These are modular enough so that if you just want the monsters, or our new class overhauls, or our exploration rules, you can buy a single book. It's all compatible with 5E and will work with your other 5E books!

We have been producing adventures and rulebooks compatible with 3E, 4E, and then 5E for over 20 years, and we’ve fulfilled 25 successful Kickstarters.

The campaign's more than 6x funded with 30 days left to go.
