Welcome to the Crowdsourcing Mornings segment! Every weekday morning, Geek Alabama talks about and features one crowdsourcing project from crowdsourcing sites such as Kickstarter, Indiegogo, and others. The hope with Crowdsourcing Mornings is to feature and help a project be successful and reach its fundraising goal. Please enjoy today’s featured project!

This project began as a simple effort to convert locations, characters, and monsters from the Bible into fifth edition stats for a personal home game. However, during this process we realized just how widespread the appeal of role-playing games was among youth groups and Bible studies that we talked to. Not only were Bible-enthusiasts playing, many of their Game Masters were struggling with the same difficult task we were: how do you run a game that is both true to the source material and fun to play?
This question led us down a road filled with conversations, game design, and research that eventually yielded 350 pages of content. Our goal was not merely to present a list of people and places as they appeared in the Bible, but to create a unique adventure experience that brings the fun and spontaneity of 5E into the narrative of biblical storytelling. What we created was the Adventurer’s Guide to the Bible.
Cleopatra is dead. Rome and Parthia struggle for control of the Fertile Crescent in a bid for world domination, while local politics in the Middle Kingdoms become increasingly divisive. The prophecies of the so-called “Messiah” have long been forgotten, and an ancient Evil lurks in the shadows, corrupting the hearts of humankind. Three of the wisest mystics known as the “Magi” travelled to Bethlehem following a star they believed to be a sign. They never returned. Hope grows dim as the world descends into darkness. What we need are answers… and those brave enough to seek them.
As of January 10th, this project has raised $19,000 of their $5,500 goal. This project has 25 days left to raise as much as it can. For a pledge of $25, you will get one PDF book.
