Here comes product No. 0!!!Campaign Spots, The Butterfrog
presents a creative and highly detailed field guide to this fantastic creature with many a useful detail and story, for both curious children and adventurous hunters of the mysterious, fey amphibian butterfrog.
A wonderfull and mysterious critter that despite it's relatively common nature, manages to elude the most cunning adventurer, crafty alchemist and greedy trapper, yet somehow many a curious children and lost wanderer stumble upon it on the most curious of circumstances. The Butterfrog is playful -and hazardous when treatened- fey frog-like creature that druids and alchemist find most handy for harvesting -or poaching!- into one too many helpful items, spellcasters hunt for spell components and familiars, and hunters seek as prized prey for fame and fortune, or faithful -croaking- companionship.This Campaign Spot presents:
- A highly graphic field guide to the Butterfrogs that describes all the details you require to find and interact with these scaly critters.
- Fantastic bedtime -and tavern!- stories about wonderful encounters with these croaking and sparkling fellows.
- Fully fleshed out characters with links and adventure hooks to catch your own Butterfrog.
- Over 5 maps -handouts, overland, and tiles- for easy and visually rich- active encounters
- Items harvested and poached from all kind of Butterfrogs (not an endagered species, so no worries!)
- Full stats for over a dozen different species of Butterfrogs
- Handy and easy to print sheets of minis, item cards, props and tile maps.
- Poster-sized chart of the known species of buterfrogs for printing! All this in one player's FREE PDF and a PDF/Print GM book!
The PDF will be presented in two books, a non-crunch, all ilustrated, Children Story Book (yup, a children's book, get your kid started on fantasy)/ Player's Field Guide (FREE, FREE, FREE!!!), and a full crunchy, all stats, background stories and GM's aid Book.

A few FAQ that I suppose may rise:Why such a big supplement for such a tiny creature?
This free No. 0 product is aimed to give a sample of the quality on BFS products. I've chosen Butterfrogs due personal (sentimental) reasons and also to explain the name of the company a bit. I think this is a good and harmless way to start the company off. This product is numbered "0" cause even thou it's an official product, it's only purpose is to be a presenttion of BFS. Product No. 1 will be announced by the end of august once the book is near to finished.What's a Campaign Spot?
Campaign Spots is the spear head product I'll be developing. These books will present small yet fully developed concepts ready to be droped in any campaign. This product line will support such concepts with background info, characters, cartography, stats n' crunch, and gaming aids like tiles, paper minis, item cards and other such useful goodies. All these on handly formated PDFs for easy extraction. All Campaign Spots will come also with a booklet meant for players, which will be presented as journals and field guides formated to be usefuly informative to players without giving away the GM's tasty bits.How can I get a printed copy?
PDFs will be available to download on the most common internet RPG stores. The print copies will be made available through another site on a limited time frame and on a limited number of copies. I'll be making and shipping these printed copies myself (almost literally hand made). All will be numbered, signed and personalized (yup, your name will be on it).
There will be a few different options for printed copies: Regular soft cover, Faux engraved leather hard cover, Standard boxed set (with soft cover and printed GM aids, such as map tiles, paper minis, item cards, props and other stuff) and Collector's Boxed Set (same as the previous box but with hard cover and more goodies). Printed copies won't go on retail because it's a free product. I'm making a few prined copies available for the people who likes their RPG stuff printed and in their bookshelves and for thos who want to have a nice physical book to read to their children What's next?
Next I'll be announcing some of the people involved in this product and...A CONTEST!
To be announced this weekend.
