Last Few Hours For Grimtooth's Ultimate Traps Collection -- All Stretch Goals Reached!

Like most DMs worth their salt, I had a copy of Grimtooth's Traps close at hand when I designed my deathtrap dungeons. Those mechanical menaces from the trap-designing troll were always inspirational, and I picked up a few of the other Grimtooth offerings over the years as well.

Now, in one fell swoop, you can own ALL SEVEN of Grimtooth's books wrapped up into one monstrous tome. Folks, there are now less than 40 hours to pledge your support to Grimtooth's Ultimate Traps Collection!

At $130,000, the Kickstarter blew past its final stretch goal, so this has become a trap-laden cornucopia of horrors! What's in here? Take a gander at this:

  • The hardcover books (gold foil and leather bound versions only) will encompass all seven of Grimtooth's tomes: Grimtooth's Traps, Grimtooth's Traps Too, Grimtooth's Traps Fore, Grimtooth's Traps Ate, Grimtooth's Traps Lite, Grimtooth's Traps Bazaar, and Grimtooth's Dungeon of Doom! The softback books and hardback printed case contains the first five books listed. PDF only levels are also available that encompass all seven. So you can get the entire Grimtooth library in one big damn 600-page book!
  • New material such as interviews with the original writers and artists, the submission process, and new traps never before seen!
  • A color cover art gallery of all of the books as well as versions around the world!
  • An index of all of the traps in the book so you can track down that ellusive player-killer in this massive tome.
  • A Grimtooth boardgame will be tucked inside for those downtime between quests!
  • Hardbacks will include printed endsheets, a satin bookmark sewn in, and a retro dustjacket of the original book cover!
  • An art print of Grimtooth and a poster of Grimtina are in there too!
  • Fat Dragon Games is providing Mechanical Traps PDFs from their E-Z Dungeons line!
  • And finally, a new DCC RPG adventure featuring Grimtooth and his traps is being written and will be available as well! (Included in the PDF, but a print option is available for an extra $10!)

If you're a fan of the terrible troll (and who isn't?), you need to climb on board as the Kickstarter comes to a close. I'm in for the gold foil version myself, plus a little extra for the print module. And you can expect Goodman Games' usual first-rate production and fulfillment on this return of a classic series!
