Fearsome Critters of Manifest!
6 days ago – Sat, Nov 09, 2019 at 06:33:44 PM

Hello all! We've been far too silent on our Kickstarter page, so we figured we'd share a little teaser of the kinds of things brewing behind the scenes. For the last few months, we've been collaborating with our amazing artists to make Manifest's book as spectacular as possible. Today we want to share with you some of the gems coming from the amazingly talented Crystal Sully.

Behold just SOME of the beasts you'll find in the core rulebook of Manifest!

Starting in the top left corner, we have the Wampus: a terrifying nightmare creature with manipulative illuminated abilities. In the top center we have the Gowrow: a massive reptilian creature with extremely thick scales. The two bottom corners feature two aquatic menaces: The deadly Wihwin and the telekinetic Snoligoster, and the bottom center is the pervasive Ball-Tail Cat.

Crystal's amazing vision for monstrous creatures is well known, and we're so glad to have her as part of the Manifest design team! You can follow her twitter for more sneak peeks of Manifestian critters: https://twitter.com/CrystalSully

Late Pledges are Closed! We're off to Gen Con!!

Hi friends!

We know we've been a little light on the updates this summer, we'll try to be more on top of them in the future, but here's what's going on with us and Manifest!

Working Hard!

June into July has been a busy month for us here at Waypoint Games.

We sent out surveys for our backers and opened (and closed) the window for people to late pledge for Manifest! Never fear, for those who missed the opportunity to late pledge, preorders are now open! We were also able to arrange a partnership with Chicagoland Games: Dice Dojo to provide a pickup option for Chicago-local backers.

Addie has been working diligently to convert Tommy's awesome rules-draft into the RPG core rulebook we're all waiting for! And Tommy has been connecting with Manifest's artists; Andrew Thompson, Crystal Sully, and Allen Panakal to make the most of their prodigious talents. Keep an eye out on our social media for some previews of their fantastic work!

The great news is is that we're on track for a Q4 delivery!!

We're on Twitch!

As some of you may know, we've been streaming actual plays of Manifest on Twitch every other Tuesday. You can join us at twitch.tv/manifesttherpg for all the excitement and adventure we can muster in two and a half to three hours! 

Heading to Indy

At the beginning of August, the Manifest team will be heading to Gen Con 2019, where we will be hosting four days of sold-out events! We're so excited to have the opportunity to run sessions for so many people! AND if you're going to be in Indy and weren't able to snap up one of the tickets, come and say hi! Our event tables are on the second floor of the Indiana Convention Centre, room 243. We'll be there most of the day every day (except when we're getting lunch at the food trucks, yum!)

If you're able to find us, either at Manifest's event tables or wandering about the convention center, we have some neat little giveaways for you, including a badge ribbon and a postcard size print of the cover art!

Tommy and Addie have been working tirelessly behind the scenes to bring Manifest to life, and they are so happy to announce that they've reached the next milestone in their journey.

The backer surveys have been sent out and late pledges are now open!

Thank you all for your tireless support and enthusiasm thus far. The Manifest team is so grateful for all of you.

Over the next few months we'll have more frequent updates as there will be less boring admin things going on and more cool, interesting, showy stuff to share! So stay tuned.

The button for late pledging is up at the top of the main page, as well as below.

Thank you all again for your support, you'll be hearing from us soon!

Y'all showed up in force to support this RPG, and that was due in no small part to some of the stellar art we had to display! Now two of our artists, Andrew Thompson and Allen Panakal, just launched their very OWN Kickstarters for some gorgeous enamel pins inspired by their respective art projects. 

Andrew Thompson's Kickstarter:


Allen Panakal's Kickstarter:


Their separate Kickstarter Campaigns are collaborative! If you support them both, you gain access to even more exclusive goodies! How cool is that? Go check them out and get your hands on some amazing pins while also supporting two of the artists responsible for bringing Manifest to life!

Quick Start Guide - Version 1 - AVAILABLE NOW!
7 months ago – Tue, Apr 23, 2019 at 02:54:28 PM

You've waited through delays, you've been patient, and now the time has come to reap your reward! 


The Quick Start Guide to Manifest the RPG is a collection of rules and guidelines that will allow you to try the game first hand. In it you'll find a rundown of the game's basic mechanics, items, and character abilities as well as a collection of sample NPCs to pit against your players. 


Alongside the Quick Start Guide, we have released a collection of 8 Pre-Made Characters! These characters will allow players to jump right into playing the game, and give you a glimpse at just how customizable a character can be in Manifest the RPG.


We also created a submission form for any feedback you may have regarding the Quick Start Guide. You can use this form to point out errors or inconsistencies in the guide as well as share your thoughts on any aspect of the system that stood out to you. As we receive feedback, we will continue to update the guide. Due to several large setbacks in the development of the guide, this version of the Quickstart Guide is 100% content and not quite up to our standards of presentation. We hope to continue to update it and polish as time allows.


We have sent a Message to all backers who qualify for this reward with a link to the page where they can download everything!


So check your emails, click the link, and start drifting!
