Atlas of the Lao Supernatural?!?
The DEMONSTRA Kickstarter is in its last five days, and is within $400 of reaching its next stretch goal, which is the Mae Thorani. This is an Earth creature that washes away demons and strange creatures by wringing out her hair.
DEMONSTRA is a very special publication by award-winning Lao-American poet Bryan Thao Worra and artist Vongduane Manivong.
Earlier this week, I unlocked the Lao weretiger for all humanity.
Now, I am asking others to step up! Here's what's in it for you besides fantastic illustrations, and Lao supernatural poetry by someone who not only writes with a pen, and with the sword and the dice:
If the $3,000 stretch goal is met, we will also see as an extra an atlas of the Lao supernatural.
How cool is that? I am pretty psyched about reaching this goal, because such atlases are of great value for all sorts of practical purposes beyond mere scholarly edification. Whether you are playing Call of Cthulhu, or Hollow Earth Expedition, or straight out Lao D&D 1st Edition, I am sure we could all benefit from this extra.
