D&D 5E [Kobold Press] Project Black Flag Update: Sticking To Our Principles

We want to start by saying thank you for all the outpouring of love and support this last week. Project Black Flag is sailing new waters toward its next destination, and we aim to continue to update you weekly.

Special thanks to William O’Brien for staying up all night listening to Manowar and painting our feelings into this beautiful piece of art. William painted the image shown here out of passion for Project Black Flag and what it stands for in our community.

We know you’ve got questions, and we’ve got some answers!

Congrats and good luck with this. Such a cool stand to take.

My only question is probably premature, but is your current thinking that it'll be a familiar-to-5e-players d20 system, or something entirely different?

These are pretty big news, IMO.
Kobold Press FAQ said:

When are the playtests coming?​

We aim to release the first phase of the Black Flag Playtest Pack in February 2023. To receive information on the playtest process, please fill out the form here.

More phases of Project Black Flag playtesting will roll out over the next few months as we build to a Kickstarter. Your review and comments will help shape the game’s final form.

How do I playtest in person?​

Gen Con 2023 is right around the corner, and we need volunteer GMs to help us with our first convention playtests of Project Black Flag. To volunteer for GMing and even earn convention badges or accommodations for Gen Con 2023, sign up today.

Who is working on it?​


Celeste Conowitch, our Senior Game Designer, is the lead on game design for this new fantasy RPG. She has been working on Project Black Flag behind the scenes since the summer of 2022. Additional designers and developers are currently engaged with the project, as well as several partners from the community. We will have more announcements on the creative team and project partners soon.

This has been underway since summer 2022? Interesting ...

I tried signing up for the playtest, but got an error message telling me that my confirmation email requires a unique entry and can't be the same as my email . . . .

Not just you. I think they are still getting hugged to death so give it a few days and try again.

I had to just send an email for con DM confirmation /questions and they got back to me super fast.
