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!

Wait, wait, wait! So you're telling me I can have mine say "Slit518" on the front of it?
So now that the Artificer goal has been reached, it occurs to me that we don't know when the Gate Pass Gazette will be made available!

Is the Artificer class something that's been worked on behind the scenes already that just didn't fit in the Core books and it's getting added? Or will it take a few months to get written, playtested, edited, rebalanced, rewritten, and then produced?

I'm hoping it's the former, but if it's the latter I'd love to help write and design it!

Wait, I can back this with Paypal even though they won't take my CC?

Nope. Not directly. BUT! Paypal also does Debit and Credit Cards like Cash App does.

Here's how you can grab one of those and use it in the above prescribed method!


Not too long now. Hitting the £600k mark looks possible, but it'll come down to the wire for that last stretch goal.

It'll be interesting to see how much action happens in the last day or two. Will there be a mad scramble that bumps it over? After day 1, it seems that 600k was always a realistic estimate, but will it be over or just under? I've never paid much attention to a kickstarter before (I've backed a few as a retailer, but I've never cared how they've done beyond funding) but I've been totally rooting for this one. Must be my overall enjoyment of ENWorld and my honest hope for Morrus to do well. That and my actual interest in Level Up as a product!


The only other Kickstarter I backed were the DemonWars Reformation Kickstarter by author R.A. Salvatore.
He only wanted $50,000 to put together a core rule book for his and his son's game. I think they made somewhere between $75-$100k on it. I was surprised they didn't make more, honestly.

This will be the second Kickstarter I back. I'm excited for the books! Good job, @Morrus and everyone else whom worked on it. And if you need an additional Freelancing Freelancer whom is looking to Freelance, I'm right here :ROFLMAO:
