Cleopatra is dead. Rome and Parthia struggle for control of the Fertile Crescent in a bid for world domination, while local politics in the Middle Kingdoms become increasingly divisive. The prophecies of the so-called “Messiah” have long been forgotten, and an ancient Evil lurks in the shadows, corrupting the hearts of humankind. Three of the wisest mystics known as the “Magi” travelled to Bethlehem following a star they believed to be a sign. They never returned. Hope grows dim as the world descends into darkness. What we need are answers... and those brave enough to seek them.

This 350+ page module adapts the historical setting of the year 26 CE into the 5th Edition rules set. This book includes an immersive campaign setting, as well as an adventure for characters of levels 1 - 10. The campaign runs parallel to the events of the Bible, so the party will constantly be encountering people and places that may be familiar from Bible stories, but the story unfolds in a way that allows the players to tell a story that is all their own!

The party will encounter powerful monarchs, ancient demons, mythic monsters, and moral dilemmas, all inspired by characters and creatures from the Bible.

This setting includes 4 playable lineages (also sometimes called "races"), and 9 new subclasses that fit within the world of the first century. Along with these options are several new feats and backgrounds, as well as dozens of new spells and player character abilities to bring a fresh new approach to Fifth Edition adventuring.

This project began as a simple effort to convert locations, characters, and monsters from the Bible into fifth edition stats for a personal home game. However, during this process we realized just how widespread the appeal of role-playing games was among youth groups and Bible studies that we talked to. Not only were Bible-enthusiasts playing, many of their Game Masters were struggling with the same difficult task we were: how do you run a game that is both true to the source material and fun to play? This question led us down a road filled with conversations, game design, and research that eventually yielded 350 pages of content. Our goal was not merely to present a list of people and places as they appeared in the Bible, but to create a unique adventure experience that brings the fun and spontaneity of 5E into the narrative of biblical storytelling. What we created was the Adventurer's Guide to the Bible.

This project was successfully funded on Kickstarter in less than 24 hours.

I backed this on Kickstarter and I am very happy with it. The book is full color with much art throughout. The rest of the book is as rich as the 26page preview.

Just curious if you've thought about making this into a Fantasy Grounds module, was trying to find a way to contact you but Could not find an e-mail address anywhere.

I'm sorry for the delay: I didn't actually realize there was a comment section until this morning. There are no plans to convert this module into other systems at the moment. However, a good deal of this book (around 150 pages of it), is simply campaign setting information, maps, and world lore which could be applied to any system.

Actually, Fantasy Grounds isn't another system. It's a virtual table top that accommodates a number of different systems. Several companies have made modules and campaigns available for it. https://www.fantasygrounds.com/home/home.php

Exactly, a bit like Roll20 in the fact that it is a VT (Virtual Tabletop). In fact, if you did a quick search here on Drivethrurpg, you would find that many publishers have formatted their works in the FG format. I would love to see this made available there as well, and would be willing to help in any way possible, not sure how that would be, its not like I rub elbows with any of the who's who over there, but I could maybe find some info out for you if your interested.

I see! I apologize for the confusion; I've been getting a lot of messages about converting to other systems, and I didn't read the comment thoroughly. As far as VTT goes, we are going to be publishing support through Roll20 next week, and also offering an "Art Pack" here on Drivethru that can be used on any VTT platform. After these two releases we will look into potentially supporting other platforms on a case-by-case basis. These kinds of decisions are mostly made by the Discord community (invite link available on the first page of the module), where we put out polls to assess what platforms the community is most active on. Roll20 had the most users by far, which is why that was our first stop. Future VTT support will depend on where players and GMs are most active.

I also have been using Fantasy Grounds VTT for years and would love to see this as a module used for Fantasy Grounds!

Looks like they've added some more preview materials - a 26 page downloadable and a 6 page quick view.

This actually doesn't look as bad as it could.
But the price together with virtually no preview will break its' neck.

Seems intriguing, but the price is steep. Can we get a real preview of the contents, not just a single sheet of some counters? That will really help to see what the content is.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.

Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
