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.

The Midderlands - An OSR Mini-Setting & Bestiary
A green-hued, dark-fantasy, old-school mini-setting and bestiary set in a twisted middle-England.

The Midderlands Kickstarter Page

The campaign is 48 HOURS to go, and currently over 100% funded. Work is 90%+ complete so pledge with confidence!

[ATTACH=CONFIG]1192[/ATTACH]

It has been suggested that this might be a good additional resource for Dark Albion, so thought I would take the opportunity to give it a shout-out here in case it is of interest.

"The Midderlands is an old-school game setting with bestiary for use with old-school role-playing games. It is based on Swords & Wizardry Complete, but could easily be used with other old-school systems and even non-OSR systems such as D&D or Pathfinder.

It is a green-hued, dark-fantasy, late-middle ages, early-renaissance view through grime-smeared spectacles. The setting itself is based on an area in the middle of England near where I live called The Midlands. Many of the locations are loosely based on reality, but others are pure fantasy from an addled mind.

The setting part of the book contains something I call "game-juice". Not heavy of history and monotonous detail, but enough to get the game-juices flowing and let the game master twist and tweak as they need to in order to fit their campaign.

There is also humour and occasional swear words."

The Stars Without Number Revised Edition Kickstarter campaign is prepping for liftoff on August 1st.  Here's a sneak peek.  I do not believe that that will be the final URL when it goes live in a few days.

Stars Without Number: Revised Edition is now live. Looks like this could very well be Kevin Crawford's biggest Kickstarter yet, and the top tier is a pretty cool option for those who missed out on all of his 1e stuff.

New edition of Superhero 2044 kickstarter is now live, looking for $100k in 60 days.  the campaign also features 3 different boxed sets of adventure maps and miniatures to go along with those maps.

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1420428366/superhero-2044-rpg-with-miniatures?ref=category_newest

(personally, I'd have made the book 1 campaign, and each boxed set a separate campaign, having everything all bundled together in 1 campaign seems like kind of a make or break set up to me)

maybe it is supposed to be the Norse god rather than the comic book character?
don't ask me, I didn't write the game.
besides it isn't like there is a Marvel RPG that has him in it that is in print...

I just came across this one. Battlefield Press plans to make a game setting of Robert Asprin's "Cold Cash War" dystopian science-fiction novel for both Savage Worlds and Cepheus Engine. Robert Asprin was (and still is) one of my favorite authors, so I had to pledge. I pledged for the Cepheus Engine version. Dang, I've been waiting for a print edition of Cepheus Engine... I hope one comes soon.

About this project

Double Dane Games, LLC is an established, locally-owned game store that has been in operation for over a year at the Central Square Mall in Grand Rapids, Mn. We are the only family-friendly game store within a 60 mile radius to supply people with a wide range of great games and hobby materials. We provide free gaming space (and demo games), and help to bring all the fun and excitement of tabletop gaming to both new and experienced gamers alike!

Double Dane Games offers an essential commercial outlet for gamers and hobbyists seeking a wide variety of quality tabletop games and accessories including those of and for, card games, board games, dice games, and role playing games. We offer miniature painting supplies, host classes, and hold miniature painting contests. Double Dane Games also provides a consignment storefront to local craftsman and artists, such as 3d printers and woodworkers. We are the area's only (within 60 miles) sanctioned host for weekly game tournaments, community game clubs, and over seven DND and Star Wars roleplaying campaigns. We also provide services ranging from game premieres to community board game events, and other game related activities.

Now we're seeking additional funding to help take tabletop gaming and hobby-crafts in Northern Mn to the next level! By updating our gaming area and expanding our product line, we will be able to meet the needs of an ever-growing hobbyist and tabletop gaming community.

So, without further ado, these are our goals:

Better Chairs for the Gaming Area. Right now our gaming-hobby area can support 30 people, so we'd like to purchase 30 vinyl padded, metal folding chairs for the greater comfort of our customers.

New Gondolas. The gondolas we have now are too big (and old). We would like to purchase 6 new, smaller footprint gondolas. This would not only actually increase our space for more products, but it would also give us more room for the gaming area!

More Gaming Accessories. We're currently supplying some of the basics: card sleeves, dice, play-mats, etc. but we would like expand our customer's choices by supplying meeples, game markers (many different kinds), game spinners, timers, and a larger selection of custom dice. We'll need a few more bins and shelves to display these items as well ...

Hobby-Craft and Terrain Supplies.  Static grass, foliage clusters, and all colors of ballast ... we would like to cater to the area's desire for quality crafting materials by adding a full line of Woodland Scenics hobby products! Once available, we would also then provide craft classes for people on how to use this great stuff to make their own trees, sculpted foam lands, and miniature nature scenes.

Expanded Miniatures Selection. We already sell a good selection of Reaper, Bones and WizKids DND miniatures, as well as the paints and brushes to detail them, but people in this area are looking for even more! We're wanting to add Red Box Games and Dark Sword Miniatures (both fantastic mini companies!) to our selection, and feature their high-detail miniatures in our monthly painting contests!

Snack Zone. Currently we have a good variety of beverages, and some sandwiches, candy, etc... but we would like our customers to have a few more options when it comes to filling their stomachs. By adding a self-serve coffee station and a dedicated sandwich cooler, we can provide our gamers with the food and beverages they most enjoy. Anyone for coffee and Cribbage this morning?

Expanded Games Selection. There are so many wonderful games out there for people to enjoy, and we would like to do all that we can to provide them! We need good stuff for our youngest crowd: kid's games. There's also a lot of people hoping that we can add-on more Pokemon, and an even bigger X-Wing collection ... both of which we would like to then start sponsoring tournaments for! By expanding our selection of quality games, we intend to meet the wants of ANY gamer, young or old.
Risks and challenges

Risks and challenges for this project are very minimal. We've already established relationships with many of the vendors involved and have carefully calculated costs to insure a successful campaign will make an important impact both for the store, the gaming area, and our customers.

The Burial Plots Kickstarter for CRYPTWORLD is now LIVE!



BURIAL PLOTS includes five adventures for the CRYPTWORLD Horror Role-Playing game. They are also for use with the original Pacesetter edition of the horror role-playing game CHILL.*

The adventures are:

Condition Critical
Dr. Howard Eastman has called a press conference at his remote research facility to announce a medical breakthrough that will "eradicate human illness and suffering forever." But what if the cure proves to be worse than the disease?

Unquenchable
Three days ago, a group of hunters failed to return from their annual deer hunt near Akron, Ohio. Your team of expert trackers and investigators has been brought in to assist in the search. But there seems to be an undercurrent of unease amongst the police who whisper of a disturbing discovery they've made. Is there something sinister lurking in the forest?

Death in the Dust
In 1888, the silver-mining boomtown of Weaver, Arizona, was abandoned after a series of unexplained disasters, and the town was left to crumble in the desert sands. Today, the former ghost town has been revitalized as a historical attraction. Is history about to repeat itself?

Forget-Me-Not
Horrific axe murders recently committed in Oregon's Tillamook State Forest are identical to those committed by the legendary "Paul Bunyon Butcher" 40 years ago. However, the original killer – now elderly and feeble – remains behind bars. Has a copycat killer surfaced, or is this the work of something even more sinister?

It Came Upon a Midnight Clear
The Christmas season is typically a time of peace on Earth and goodwill toward men. But one THING has decided to make this year's Yuletide visit to relatives a horrific holiday from Hell.

Early View of the Book Contents
Backers will receive a link to download a copy of the adventures and maps before the KS campaign is over. There will be a delay for this as I am still tidying up one last map.

WHAT WE NEED
All of the writing is done. The cover art is done and paid for. We're looking for community support to help fund the interior art and writing.

And those folks who have not tried CRYPTWORLD, you can also add on the core rules  - or any of the other Pacesetter game books - when you pledge for "Burial Plots."
