Level Up (A5E) It's Here! It's Time To LEVEL UP Your 5E Game!

After nearly two years of waiting, the Level Up: Advanced 5E Kickstarter has finally launched! This standalone advanced 5E tabletop RPG which adds depth and diversity to the game you love!


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 iteration of 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!

Oh my! I wish I had the funds right now! Hopefully next week I'll be able to pledge. Question, if I can't get everything in the KS, can I later buy the pdfs of what I miss?

16 days to go and it’s at $530,583 usd.
PDFs sent as soon as it’s over…still a huge selling point for me as that’s rare for large kickstarters and this is 3 books!

Hey, Morrus! What're the chances that when the Narrator Screen Stretch Goal hits we can get "More Backgrounds" as a stretch goal?

Like maybe Caged (For characters who spent most of their lives imprisoned, deserved or not), Courtier (For people who want to be at court but not nobles), Investigator (More specific in flavor than City Guard), Pirate (For those with a Penzance Penchant), Sheltered (For characters kept away from the broader world by cultists, overzealous parents, or the guards of a castle), and Stolen Child (For characters traded to or stolen by Fey)

And maybe, just maybe, an Amnesiac background for those players who wanna hand their character's backstory responsibility entirely to their DM.

We've got the next 4 planned out and we think you'll love them!

will I, the one clamoring for an artificer class, ALSO love the stretch goals?

will I, the man clearly trying to get you to spill the beans instead of just being patient, succeed in my attempts?

find out NEXT post, same EN time same EN forum


no forge waffle!
How about a specialised version of one of those litter-picking sticks, to allow you to easily move minis on a crowded battlemap without getting out from behind the DM screen? That'd be a real stretch goal.
No, no. Litter-picking sticks are for stabbing. You want a croupier's rake!

Unless you really like stabbing your minis as the creatures die.
