One thing I'd love to see, after looking at the previews, is to have ability modifiers included in the monster statblocks. Like if a creature has a Str 15, having a simple [+2] (or whatever in brackets next to it) would keep me from having to reference a chart or another book while in play.
Is that something that could be added?

I get what you're saying, but that would be a formatting nightmare, for a few reasons. 1, since this is compatible with AD&D, each ability has different bonuses. They aren't like 3e on, where a 15 is the same bonus for WIS as it is for STR. Secondly, it would mean I'd have to go in and add a line to each monster entry, and that would lead to shifting everything down. I'd have to re-layout the entire book by doing so (which took weeks initially).

So while I see your point, and understand, I think the effort would be too much at this point :/

The good news is that you really don't need modifiers for monsters in that regard. Damages for attacks are already pre-calculated, which means the only time monster ability scores come into play is if they are forced to make an ability check. And in that regard, ability checks are all roll under, so having the score rather than a modifier is more relevant. So you really wouldn't need to reference the ability tables unless it was a one off exception for some reason anyway.

(Formatting is weird. Apparently, don’t try to use a ‘greater than’ sign in a post on ENWorld.)

Man, you folks are great. I hope it does too! Lol. And I hope I provide something you all find fun to play. I mean, that's pretty important too, right? ;)

But I was thinking last night (when the imposter syndrome kicks in). I mentioned how I will personally match 25% of net profit and donate it to the Trevor Project (focuses on at risk LGBTQ youth and suicide prevention). Even if I am not successful, I'm gonna donate anyway, just not sure what my budget will allow. This is important to me whether or not I'm successful on KS.

just reminding people.

If you want to support good works with money, and not just words, this is one way to do it.

I just backed it. The previews tipped me to do it. Love the character sheet. Love the readable format (no busy background). Love the old school black and white art. My 2e books are bound with duct tape at this point and that's failing to keep the pages together. I am now looking forward to trying Chromatic Dungeons with my old modules.

Huge update today with big news!

I've decide to make all of the stretch goals available now. Additional tiers have been created. So if you wanted to upgrade your backer level to include the Basic sets and/or The Gnoll Sage, now you can!

Also, it means $10 digital backers get pdfs of all of these. That's quite the sweet deal!

So, first off, I continue to recommend supporting this!

Second- you do realize you now have a $39+ tier, and a $40+ tier? Might want to differentiate ... a little more? ;)

They are different rewards. The $39 is for core rulebook + The Gnoll Sage zines, and the $40 is for the core rulebook + Basic set. Then there is a $49 for core rulebook+gnoll sage+basic set. I wanted to give options for those that didn't want the core rulebook and both TGS and Basic set
