This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.
NOTICE: Some online security services are reporting that information for a limited number of users from this site is for sale on the "dark web." As of right now, there is no direct evidence of this, but change your password just to be safe.

Savage Worlds: Rifts Atlantis KS

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/545820095/rifts-for-savage-worlds-atlantis-rising

Quote
Atlantis Rising
Shrouded by the Demon Seas, birthplace of a wondrous human civilization, and now host to a bizarre cosmic evil: Atlantis is a threat like no other. The massive isle is ruled by the Splugorth, and from it their tendrils of influence snake out across Rifts® Earth. Yet the Splugorth are not the only threat inhabiting the treacherous waters—the Horune Pirates, Naut'Yll invaders, and the Lord of the Deep also haunt the world's oceans. On their own, each of these menaces is a curse to humanity at sea and onshore. Together, they endanger intelligent life across the planet!

Resisting such malign force may seem impossible, but the Tomorrow Legion is gathering equally powerful allies to battle the oncoming storm. The True Atlanteans and their ancient cousins the Lemurians are eager to join the battle against their ancient enemies. The New Navy, a remnant of the naval might of the long-gone USA, is also ready to join the fight. Working together the forces of good can turn the dark tide, but it won't be easy.

To succeed, our heroes must harness the power of exotic new gear including the legendary rune weapons, discover the power of tattoo magic, unearth the might of Bio-Wizardry, and learn to control the enigmatic magic stone pyramids which first opened Earth to the Megaverse®.

Welcome to Atlantis!
Fight back against the chthonic horrors bent on terror and subjugation! Survive the wrath of monsters from the depths in new Savage Tales, and discover Atlantis in a heroic Plot Point Campaign fighting against the Minions of Splugorth.

Rifts®: Atlantis and the Demon Seas is a 192-page full-color hardcover sourcebook with new Iconic Frameworks, MARS packages, Edges, Races, and Gear. This Kickstarter also offers an amazing new first for Rifts®—an army of pawns for your table! AND an alluring poster map, two double-sided combat maps, archetype dossiers, and more!

I'm not one of the creators but I really want to share an RPG that I really love, now on Kickstarter in its english version in collaboration with mana project studios (the ones of Journey to Ragnarok). Its name is Not the End and in 2020 it won the the italian "gioco di ruolo dell'anno" (rpg of the year) prize, which is i think the most important italian award for Rpgs.

Last year I partecipated to the kickstarter for the italian version and since that moment it became my favourite RPG. It's simple to learn (rules can be explained in 10 minutes even to people who never played an RPG) but it has a lot of depth while playing, since its mechanics somehow leave the players the choice to succeed in what they are doing at the prices of higher consequences, and encourage them to actively support the narrator into adding elements to the story.

It can be played in every setting (I played it in Fantasy, Sci-Fi, Modern, Horror and Anime settings without any problem) and it let the players create exactly the character they want, without limitations, yet keeping them balanced.

Most important thing is that if you want to try the game you don't have to spend money, since the game quickstart, freely downloadable by clicking the top image in the kickstarter page, contains every single rule you need to play and enjoy the game.

Here's the link for the quickstart: https://manaprojectstudio.com/not-the-end-english-edition/download-the-quickstart/
And here's the link to some sample-characters: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1NQcg3_v5UpzCtYPf1DpHS5Jlpyt6Her7

Last thing: it's an highly-narrative game, which lacks the tabletop-like part that games like D&D have (builds, combos, on square grid combat, etc), so if you like that kind of games it may not be the game for you... but I suggest you to try it anyway, with the quickstart eventually, without spending money. I like D&D too but I found this game highly refreshing and now I prefer this way of playing over the others.

Paved in Blood is a city-making game of magical mysteries and strange conspiracies. It's about creating a city with a group of friends, a city that's full of hidden supernatural organizations, factions, that are following unknowable agendas with questionable goals, just outside the periphery of the mundane populace. Wherever they act, strange Resonances crop up, coloring the supernatural landscape.

While many setting creation games use a top-down approach, Paved in Blood works from the bottom up, exploring the city through the eyes of the (potentially preternatural) characters within it. You start off creating characters that tie to locations, and then start weaving those together to create factions, neighborhoods, and eventually districts within the city.

It's not as simple as brainstorming, though. At just about any step along the way, other players can insert a twist into your scenes, events, or conspiracies, preventing anything from being too straightforward. By the end of the game, your table will be an interconnected mess of people, places, plots, and more!

BRW Games: Book of Lost Lore & Book of Lost Beasts

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/brwgames/book-of-lost-lore-and-book-of-lost-beasts

I like the work BRW has put out for a reimagining of 1e and the direction it might have taken.
This most recent effort by them doesn't even seem to be listed on their own website for some reason (oops).

Just helping to get the word out of a company's work I enjoy.
If you like what BRW did in the past like I have, then it is worth a look.  I like what I'm seeing so far.

XDM: X-treme Dungeon Mastery, by Tracy and Curtis Hickman, hailed as "the cure for the common game¹," is a  tabletop role-playing supplement designed to improve every RPG you play.  First published in 2009, it's high time for a second edition. We've brought back the original creative team for a fresh round of edits, expansions, illustrations, and much more.

But my project, but some of the best OSR adventures campaigns have come out of Art of the Genre and they have a new a Kickstarter at  https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/563681582/the-complete-folio-black-label . Like all of The Folio Series orange spine hardcovers, this one is written for both 1e and 5e and definitely has that old school fantasy feel.
