Crystalpunk Campaign Setting

Created by Plus Three Press

Crystalpunk is a brand new campaign setting for 5e tabletop role-playing. It’s set in a unique new world where spells, souls, demons, and infused crystals fuel brutal, unique technology. In Crystalpunk, you’ll blast your way through neo-noir adventures infused with futuristic fantasy with tough choices at every corner. You’ll take risks in an unforgiving world where attitude is everything, and you’ll do it in style.

Latest Updates from Our Project:

Quick Update on Fulfillment & Crystalpunk Chronicles
5 months ago – Sat, Apr 30, 2022 at 02:05:00 PM

Hey everyone!

Just a quick update today on our current fulfillment status for the hardcovers and the Crystalpunk Chronicles eBook.

Hardcover Fulfillment Status

The manufacturing process for all of the books is now fully complete! All of the pages have been printed, covers have been attached, and they have all been put in their shipping boxes.

Unfortunately, this process took longer than expected due to delays relating to COVID outbreaks. In addition, we are still anticipating some port congestion for the same reason. Thankfully, our fulfillment partner has made great efforts to get the books delivered as soon as possible. They already booked a container for a bulk shipment to the US (for US and Canada orders) and are beginning direct shipments for all other orders within the week.

Despite this, while delivery by the end of May is still a possibility if luck is in our favour, we believe that:

Early June is now a better estimate for the delivery of the Hardcovers.

We will keep you all updated as the fulfillment process continues with any important updates. Tracking numbers will also be released through BackerKit when they are available to us. Thank you everyone for your patience with all of this, we hope the wait will be worth it!

Crystalpunk Chronicles

Back in November of last year, we set a deadline for the release of Crystalpunk Chronicles of May 1st. We've been steadily working on finishing up Crystalpunk Chronicles while organizing each stage of the hardcover fulfillment. At this stage, if we want to keep the quality we're aiming for with the eBook, we think we need a little more time. While almost all of the writing is finished, we're still tinkering with the stories to clean up errors and make sure the storytelling in each story is effective.

That being said, you can expect the release of Chronicles 1-2 weeks into May. We'll be releasing another update when it's finished and distributed.

Thank you again for your patience everyone, have a great week!

Printing is Almost Finished! (+ A Small Teaser for Our Next Project)
6 months ago – Sat, Apr 02, 2022 at 07:44:03 AM

Hey everyone,

It's been a month since the final PDF release and we hope you all have been having fun with it. This quick update will talk about our current fulfillment status for the hardcover, our new website, and a small teaser for our next project.

Also, we want to quickly inform everyone that there was a minor error in the CITY & CONTINENT MAPS.zip (one of the markers was missing in the continent maps) The file was recently updated to fix this error, so feel free to re-download it to get the most updated version.

Printing is Almost Finished!

The interior pages of the hardcovers have now all been printed, folded, and sewed! Unfortunately due to a few logistical hassles to do with COVID restrictions, our production schedule for the hardcovers was slightly delayed. All that is left is the covers, and they should be bound and complete in around a week. We are currently estimating that this delay will not affect our deadline of delivery by the end of May. 

We got our hands on some early proofs a few months ago, but it's great to see the final versions. Here are some pics of the final interior pages:

Our New Website

Our new website was just released on plusthreepress.com! Our shop has been moved from BackerKit to there, so if you're still looking at grabbing a copy of the PDF or Hardcover of the Campaign Guide, that's the place to go.

A Small Teaser for Our Next Project

Finally, today we wanted to unveil a very small teaser for our next project. Introducing...

ELEMENTARA: GUIDE TO THE SEVEN ELEMENTS FOR 5E!

We know it's not much, but that's all we've got for you on the project for now. More info will be revealed in the coming months, so be sure to follow our Twitter and Instagram for updates. If you are itching for a bit more right now, you can also listen to the project's Spotify Playlist!

Thanks everyone, have a great week!

We'd also like to give a HUGE thank you to everyone who left feedback during the beta. All of the feedback that was given helped so much in refining the final product. We are truly grateful.

You may have noticed that we've also paused the pre-orders for hardcovers on BackerKit. You can still order the digital PDF over there, but we will soon transition the store over to our website and make the hardcover copies available there once that's all set up. Look out for our next update for more info on that.

This has been a massive year for us as first-time creators and we are so grateful to have had such a supportive community throughout it. We truly could not have done all of this without you. Take care everyone, and have a great week!

Quick Progress Update & City Map Preview
9 months ago – Fri, Dec 24, 2021 at 04:24:32 PM

Hey everyone! Quick update for today.

Progress Update

We've done a lot of work in the month since our last update, and we're now up to wrapping up the final bits of our writing and layout, and all of the mechanics are completely finalized. There are only a few bits of flavor sections that we need to finish up the writing and layout on, which mostly consist of some of the interviews with Reverb throughout the book. At the start of January, we'll quickly finish up the few bits we need to finalize, then we'll be moving on to editing the entire book. Currently, we're right on track for the Beta PDF release on January 31st.

Reminder About Locking Orders

We want to quickly remind everyone that we'll be locking orders on January 7th, then charging cards for add-ons and pre-orders one week after, on January 14th. After orders are locked, you'll still be able to change your shipping address up until February 21st.

City Map Preview

Lastly, we wanted to share a preview of the map of Prismatic Falls, Crystalpunk's core location. It's by a new artist who has recently started working with us on the project, Ferdinand Ladera. We'll be including a full-res version of this map, as well as the continent map, along with all reward tiers and pre-orders.

Enjoy the holiday season everyone!
