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.

The Mothership KS has gone live.

It's a $60 basic box set with the player's book (previously available in beta versions), GM book and monster book (both new) + dice.

There are higher tiers if you want their printed adventure/setting books or the pamphlet adventures.  There is also a cheaper pdf only tier.

Gunslinger - Strange Science in the Wild West

Imagine if Edgar Rice Burroughs wrote a script for a Wild Wild West movie and Sergio Leone directed it.

My first Kickstarter, this is the game I've been working on for the past year. It is a prelude to the Princess of the Red Planet campaign adventure for the Warriors of the Red Planet RPG.

Coming Soon

Hi all, I create rpg content for a living and I just wanted to let you know about my solo RPG, Be Like a Crow. All the stretch goals have been hit so there's lots of little extras (including a crow mini!) for all backers. It's also been awarded Project We Love by Kickstarter.

All you need is a pen and paper, a deck of playing cards, and your unbridled imagination to take flight. This Kickstarter is for a solo-RPG that will allow you to become a crow and do crowy things whilst journalling your experiences. The softcover A5 rulebook contains everything you need to get started in a few minutes, as well as beautiful corvid-themed artwork.

If it sounds right up your street, you can check the project out here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/criticalkit/be-like-a-crow
Thank you for looking.

It’s Firefly in the imperial pre-Great War era, with tramp steamers.

Read about our newest, biggest sandbox expansion for Raiders of R’lyeh, From the Tideless Sea.

Love Raiders of R’lyeh and looking forward to its first, massive expansion? Then Raiders of R’lyeh: From the Tideless Sea will be a ‘must own.’

But the book will also be a must-own for:

-Call of Cthulhu fanatics wanting a tramp steamer sourcebook and massive sandbox full of seafaring cults, strange ports of call, scheming factions, and epic conspiratorial plots

And will most likely appeal to:

-Traveller players wanting to try the Traveller experience but with seafaring cargo liners in the pre-Great War era

-Pulp action or historical gamers wanting toolkits, toolkits, and more toolkits, plus an exhaustively researched sourcebook covering the 1900-1914 era of seafaring travel and derring-do

And don’t forget to sign up for news about the upcoming release.

My most recent monster zine for Old School Essentials has funded (to the tune of $260 as of now). That's 10 now in the series. I have some fans that requested a collected POD omnibus. But they're suggesting I run a new campaign for it. I dunno, seems pretty ambitious. LoL. I've seen fairly anemic support for the current one. It's hard to believe more pledges would come in... dunno dunno dunno.

I've never tried it before though. With a mockup, I guess it might generate more interest.

As a Stretch Goal, I was thinking $5K. That would give me enough time/money to devote to the project. However, that seems pretty impossible based on this campaign's performance. Maybe a lower amount like $2K would be possible. I don't know.

Format-wise, I'm thinking A4 landscape. 1 page for art, with the statblock and fluff on the facing page. Total of 160 monsters and around 326 pages including OGL, Index, etc.

Here's the link to my current campaign: http://kck.st/3oBOn4x

Back issues in the series are 30% off on https://www.drivethrurpg.com/browse/pub/5679/Jeremy-Hart while the new campaign runs.

Hello everyone!

We just launched our kickstarter for our project Other Earths! you can find it here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/infiniteodyssey/other-earths 

It is a cooperative tabletop role-playing game designed for two or more players. Set in a science fantasy multiverse in which a puritanical Empire of Elves has invaded multiple timelines and has been waging a holy war on everyone they come across. Players take on the role of mercenaries who have had their souls transplanted into genetically modified clone bodies, called Carbons, fighting a desperate day-to-day battle for survival in the refugee city of Muye. This unique setting allows the seamless incorporation of nearly any genre.

This Handbook utilizes Infinite Odyssey’s d6 System which is both classless and levelless. In this system character growth occurs through the learning of new spells and abilities which can change the way players interact with the world and help to resolve conflicts. Players can choose from a list of over 150 spells and abilities and equip their characters from a list of over 250 items, offering limitless variations in gameplay styles.

All of our funded digital stretch goals will come included with any pledge at the $25 dollar level or higher, and this includes PDFs of our planned campaign books, should those stretch goals be reached.
 
We have a lot more material and information about the game on our kickstarter page! please go give it a look, AND anyone who contributes just $1 gets immediate access to the Playtester's Guide and a full length example mission, titled "Mom's Murder". So please go check us out!

Thank you,

Tom.
