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.

Heroes & Hardships Kickstarter is now live.  https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/heroes-and-hardships/heroes-and-hardships-core-rulebook

I have no relation to this publisher, but I do like "Universal" systems, so I'm putting it here.  Looks interesting.

Simple Superheroes #1: The Experiment RPG adventure​
New Carthage part 1—a supervillain seeking revenge, an experiment sabotaged, your heroes caught in the middle.

Is up for pre-order and has a 6 day kickstarter (chiefly for those who may want a nice bundle of the 2nd printing of the core rules and the adventure.)

Simple Superheroes #1: The Experiment is a adventure module including setting information for the city of New Carthage and 9 detailed adventure Events that Game Masters can leverage to run the scenario in many different ways.

Print versions are expected to ship in early November, a 5th Draft PDF will be made available immediately.

It's a densely packed ~32 page saddle-stitched, and the engine has a traditional Game Master role, where the Judge is meant to make rulings and control the world and NPCs.

What happened? You'll have to follow some links to see the front cover by Storn Cook.

Hand't been on the site in a while.

To be honest I have so many sites to track in my head that I forget where I hang out and absent mindedly wander around from one to another.

Ok, here goes the Sales Pitch....

If you are truly OSR and hate anything made later than about 1985 this is the game book for you.

It was reviewed by some guy named Pundit or something like that. He was very favorable.

You can get it here:

Glad for the reminder, I am super tempted to pick this up. Quite intrigued by the "system" elements it may contain as well as it's historic significance.

When the Moon Hangs Low is in its final 48 hours on Kickstarter!

When the Moon Hangs Low is a gothic action RPG inspired by Bloodborne, Darkest Dungeon, and a range of other sources to create a grim, monster-hunting game in which you must manage your character’s mental resolve as much as their other resources if you hope to survive.

It’s now entering the final 48 hours and we’re currently at 90% funded and so close to our goal, so if you could take a look and consider sharing or backing it’d be greatly appreciated.

Link to the Kickstarter here

In WTMHL players take on the role of hunters: people marked by a chance encounter with the forces of darkness and left with supernatural powers and an inescapable curse. Drawn to Harrowmire, a decaying pseudo-Victorian city in the grip of a terrible plague, the hunters are all that stands between the people of the Cursed City and complete chaos.

This campaign is to fund a fully-artworked printed edition of the already gold best-selling PDF on DrivethruRPG. If successful the new book will be filled with bespoke artwork by talented creators, and also come with a custom soundtrack to accompany your games.

In addition, the book will contain a range of backer-created content including two new Marks, two new monsters, and five new NPCs. I’ll also be adding the GM-less supplement I created earlier in the campaign as it was so well received by backers.

Thanks for reading.

Just a reminder booster that, The Lost Dungeons of Tonisborg is available again.

My previous notice was a bit small and there is a lot more to know about Tonisborg.

It is the 2nd oldest dungeon to come out of the twin cities from 1973. We're told that it could be the same dungeon that Greg Svenson DM'ed Dave Arneson in for the first time. As the only Dm in the world at the time Arneson must have been really pleased to play with someone else as DM and get to see what it is like to play an RPG.

The Book exceeds normal standards of quality with the hard bound editions. They are not mass produced garbage. The fabric covers are hand assembled here in the USA by skilled artisans

The print runs are fairly small and from what we have seen each printing immediately goes up in value.

1st printing: 25 Black cover, 30 teal cover, 170 purple cover - A purple sold on ebay for 530 dollars

2nd printing: thus far 200 with cardinal red cover and 80 pound paper. The rest will be the same only with 70 pound paper. - Someone is trying to sell an 80 pound paper edition on ebay for 500 dollars.

Due to sourcing problems the batches are all unique and have ended up becoming highly collectible.

The catch is, these aren't just a collectible gimmick as the content is good and people seem to be very positive about owning their books.

If you are already planning on getting one, please do so. It helps us maintain momentum in the Kickstarter if those who watch it see that sales aren't dipping. Helping the project appear active is another way you can help it do well.

We are also auctioning off original art and selling print sets for those interested in fantasy artwork. Please go check out all the goods we have on offer and leave a comment there if you have any questions.

Thank you, Griff

I will leave another Fan Made Video which asks: Is Tonisborg for you?

For the record, over on a stupid RPGnet thread about me, some guy posted "To clarify for anyone else reading this: RPGPundit is not a designer on 5e. He was credited as a "consultant." When 5e was released, RPGPundit stated none of his input was utilized. RPGPundit had his consultant credit removed from 5e after making false statements regarding, and leading an organized harassment campaign against the author of Zweihander."

Almost everything said there is a lie. I was a designer on 5e. I was credited as a consultant (the only truth). I never said none of my input was utilized, on the contrary I've repeatedly said that a good amount of my input was utilized (of course, some of my input was not, that's to be expected), and have specified which specific areas had input from me, as well as overall design philosophy that I advocated for which was used. Wizards has never contradicted any of my statements, nor has project lead Mike Mearls, because they know it's true and I have the emails to prove it.
I did not have my specific consultant credit removed for "making false statements" or leading a harassment campaign against anyone; ALL the consultant credits were removed after the Zak S controversy because they couldn't just remove Zak's name without getting sued (but by removing all the consultant credits, including not just me but S. John Ross, Jeff Grubb, Kenneth Hite and others, they could say they just chose not to print them, rather than that they were specifically targeting/removing Zak's name because of the allegations Mandy Morbid made against him).

I would appreciate if anyone who can post on RPGnet would clarify this on the thread where I am being libeled . Post #10

Good job getting him banned.

RPG.net got him banned. Their insane totalitarian policies, where they let a poster attack and libel me, while they ban someone (not just someone, but the thread OP and a publisher) for posting a response.

The Carrion Lands is being crowd funded directly on Backerkit by Gallant Knight Games. 

I've had the ashcan version for awhile now and it's a pretty fun sword and sorcery game.  If you are familiar with the Conan Exiles video game, this is a pretty good table top version of that.  You find yourself exiled in the Carrion Lands with no memory of your previous life.  You have to take what you need to survive.  Fight creatures, monsters and demons.  Become a Carrion Lord yourself.  The game has some survival mechanics as well as settlement rules.  It uses a d20 mechanic with scaling dice for supplies.

120 page, B&W art with pdf, softcover, hardcover and slipcase options.
