Stonetop Pre-Orders Available at Backerkit

 So, uh, this happened:

As we mentioned a few times in the Kickstater updates, we've been absolutely blown away by the support and the enthusiasm. 

I've been trying to focus on finishing the two books, and keeping on top of the (considerably enlarged) Stonetop community on Discord, and just haven't gotten around to posting any follow-ups here. I'll be aiming to more of that soon, as I've got a few things to talk about that might be relevant not just to Stonetop folks but to anyone who plays and tinkers with Dungeon World or Homebrew World. In particular, I plan to talk about:

  • How and why I changed the names of many basic moves
  • How and why I'm changing Drives (Stonetop's take on Dungeon World's Alignment rules) into PC Instincts
  • Stonetop's updated rules for Followers, which are iteration from those presented in the Perilous Wilds.

In the meantime, if you missed the kickstarter and would like to preorder the books or the PDF, you can do so here:

Pre-orders for the physical books will remain open until a few weeks before we go to press. If you pre-order either the physical book or the PDF, you'll get access to the current preview playkit and an invite to the Stonetop community on Discord. 

Shipping costs will be added as you check out, but for the books, they are:

  • US: $15
  • Canada/EU/UK: $22
  • Norway/Switzerland: $38
  • Australia: $25
  • New Zealand: $30
  • China, Macao, Hong Kong: $14
  • Rest of Asia: $29
  • All other countries: $70-100
Shipping costs above include customs and VAT for international customers.  


  1. I just discovered your blog, and have been reading it voraciously. I'm founding it to be an excellent resource for DW hacking, and general game-mastering advice. Thank you so much. I will definitely be purchasing Stonetop.

  2. Is there any place where I can follow the news on Stonetop if I wasn't around for the KS campaign?

    1. Folks who pre-order get access to the Stonetop Discord and the current PDFs, and Jason has been copying pre-order folks on the KS updates as well.

      If you're not interesting in pre-ordering, you can keep your eyes here and/or at We'll definitely post when it goes to print.

  3. I pre-ordered the PDFs but don't know where to join discord or how to get updates? How would I go about doing any of that?

    1. Oh, jeez! I'm sorry I never replied to this, Herr! Did you ever get an email from Jason Lutes?

      The pre-orders via backerkit don't have the ability to retroactively add people to the KS backer feeds, so Jason has been manually sending emails to folks who pre-order with a link to the playtest files, the Discord, and a Google Doc with the text of the backer-only updates. He typically does a round of emails for new pre-orders every couple weeks, so I'd be surprised if you hadn't gotten one by now. If you haven't, let me know at jack underscore blackfoot at the yahoo com and I'll check in with Jason.

      ZayZayEM... not sure when you preordered, but if it's been more than a week or so, let me know!

    2. I've gotten access through an email from penny lantern.

      This is fantastic stuff.

      I love the magic item system you've created. Thematic and exciting.

      A bit more special than the just "have a rest and *bam* you're attuned" from "other gaming systems"

  4. Hi Jeremy! I'm trying to get in contact with you about featuring Stonetop on my Twitch channel, but I can't find a good way to contact you anywhere. Would you mind shooting me an email so we can chat? My email is .
