The Amethyst Kickstarter has Begun!

Which side will you choose? Which weapons will you wield? Venture into lands once claimed by skyscrapers and factories, now overrun by elves, goblins, and dragons. Ride gracefully on horseback or plow through the wilderness in an armored transport.

Earth is torn between the order of science and the chaos of fantasy. The realm of magic has invaded our world, forcing man into the last few bastions of technology. These two worlds cannot mix. Will you embrace the wonder of legends and myths or accept the reality of refrigerators and washing machines?

For 500 years the planet was locked in stalemate, but no more. The Stones of Amethyst have risen. When brought together, they could decide the future of the planet, cast off the remaining shred of technology, or close off the world of magic forever. Choose your path and commit to the quest. Monsters will hunt you; machines will track you. No gods will help you; no prophecies will choose you. The fate of the world rests with you.

What’s the objective?

It is the singular goal of bringing Amethyst into full-color and introducing it to new and returning players.The end result will have several manifestations, the first being the release of Amethyst-Factions, the next supplement, for both 4th Edition D&D and Pathfinder.The second is a color-reboot of the original sourcebooks. Amethyst Renaissance 2.0 will only be a color-update but Amethyst Compendium will be a complete 4th Edition reboot, including content from both Foundations and Evolution, errata updated.

What’s the goal?

We are looking for $8000, which is all reserved for the production of content, not for the development of the DEM label or to fund other ventures.This will be for digital products only.We’re not sending out USB keys and T-Shirts as those all take away from the money we want to use to produce more Amethyst content.Anyone receiving a PDF as part of a reward will be able to acquire the color premium POD of that same PDF at print cost.


We have stretch goals in mind, which include…
$10,000: The Amethyst Soundtrack, rewarded to all pledges $20 and above.
$13,000: A new Amethyst Adventure, rewarded to all pledges $40 and above (for all supported systems).
$20,000: Amethyst Shattered, the next full supplement (for all supported systems), rewarded to all pledges 40$ and above.



Chris Dias

Chris Tavares Dias is the literary equivalent of that crusty burnt cheese at the bottom of the fondue pot. Some people claim he looks like Mathew Perry. He would like that to be true. It's not. In 2010, Chris co-wrote and created Amethyst Foundations, a 4th Edition setting based on the previous version under 3.5. It has received critical acclaim for integrating science fiction into classical fantasy. In August of this year, Chris was last seen staring at a dead raven that had fallen beside his car. Two months later, his watch and notepad were found in the stomach of a basking shark that had washed ashore off the coast of Florida.
