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.

It's still $3.000. Money for nothing and chicken wings for free.

I'm convinced that at a certain point in time GMSkarka had the sincere intention of delivering a finished Far West product.

But how deluded would I have to be to think that a concept like 'Couchpotato : the Self-Indulging' will ever get beyond the Collect-Funds phase? Never mind shipping a physical item to backers...

I would bet the numbers would be far more impressive if they graded it by weight of backers rather than the pittance they donated.... just sayin!

Minimum backer amount = $ equal to backer's body weight.

If you say "look it up", I'd think one would want to provide a link. As for what SJWs want, as WWotW noted, it's a tiny project of a solo journaling RPG (one of those weird niche genres) that raised $3580 with 181 backers.

cf. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/avenmcconnaughey/fat-self-care-volume-1

By comparison - Coyote and Crow is billed as a "science fantasy role-playing game set in an uncolonized future", set in an alternate future of the Americas where European colonization never occurred. It raised $421,367 from 6197 backers at last count.

cf. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/connoralexander/coyote-and-crow

The former is a tiny niche within a niche - the latter at least shows some broader interest.

I must say though it will probably be overwokified I'm quite interested in C&C setting, I mean this is on paper interesting idea.

Yeah. I don't know the authors' work, so I'm not inclined to try it out yet. (I rarely go for any Kickstarter.) But the idea is interesting, I agree.

I'm intrigued to see the city of Cahokia being featured. I had been thinking about a swashbuckling game set in medieval Cahokia, on the idea that swashbuckling is really about the genre and society rather than about steel.

Reading the Kickstarter has provided me with a new motivation to lose those last 20 pounds.
And thus it came to pass that the Silmarils found their long homes: one in the airs of heaven, and one in the fires of the heart of the world, and one in the deep waters.

I started reading the Kickstarter, but then got sidetracked thinking of jokes about "stretch goals". (Your waistband, touching your toes etc.)

Agree the non-colonised America setting sounds interesting in principle. Tricky to pull off the backstory in a plausible way. Presumably Europe has to get quasi-nuked. Then what? Ming vs Ottomans along the Mississippi frontier?

And now we see the reason behind the combat wheelchair shit; it was simply laying the groundwork for the walmart style combat mobility scooters that liches will cluster at dungeon entrances. How could we have been so blind?
