Title: [KICKSTARTER] The RPGsite Thread for Information About Kickstarter Projects
Post by: RPGPundit on November 02, 2016, 04:49:57 AM
This is the thread for users (any users, not just publishers or people involved with a KS project) to let the community here know about current Kickstarter RPG-projects

PLEASE NOTE this thread is ONLY for:

a) announcements about Kickstarter projects (either by the people doing the KS, or by members of the site who found out about the kickstarter and want to let us know).

b) Commentary about the Kickstarter project itself, NOT about the game. So you could post about KS updates, problems with the KS, warnings about the people running it or things like that. But NOT about how cool the game is or how bad the game is or discussions about mechanics in the game, etc. Those could be done in separate (normal) threads on the main forum.


Also please note:

-Publishers can STILL post their own threads about their KS projects in the News & Advertising forum. They'll probably want to do both, and that's fine.

-Gamers can obviously still post individual threads to talk more in-depth about KS projects or express discussion of the content/rules whatever.


Please only post about CURRENT KS projects or projects that are upcoming. This thread is principally so that members of theRPGsite can find out about what's out there on kickstarter right now, without having to search elsewhere.
Title: [Kickstarter] Dungeon Grappling - Grappling rules for the OSR through 5e
Post by: DouglasCole on November 11, 2016, 01:20:34 PM
The Dungeon Grappling Kickstarter (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2101297466/dungeon-grappling-rpg-supplement)

The Dungeon Grappling Kickstarter went live on November 7, and will run through Dec 5.
[ATTACH=CONFIG]523[/ATTACH]
What is it?

First and foremost, this book contains rules based on Open Gaming Licence content from several editions of the industry’s most popular RPG to make grappling fun, exciting, and easy to play.

It contains rules and examples from three different flavors of the most popular fantasy RPG – from S&W, PFRPG, and Fifth Edition – in order to finally give grappling its due as a method of combat.

It’s a short supplement – right now it clocks in at about 40 pages, but will likely grow to about 46-48.

Don’t take this short blurb as entire story, though – go read the pitch (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2101297466/dungeon-grappling-rpg-supplement). You'll see layout examples, artist bios, and details about what's in the book.

How Risky is This?

Given the manuscript is done, the layout is well advanced, the indexing is in the process of being entered into layout . . . the only thing that is not done is the art.

And that’s what the Kickstarter is for.

I’ll be spreading the 16 (or 20, if stretch goals are hit) pieces through four artists, so each one will be making 4-5 pieces each. The art direction starts when I get the next layout pass from Nathan, so delivering on or ahead of schedule should be achievable unless something truly unforeseeable happens.

Please help me out

This is Gaming Ballistic (https://gamingballistic.com/)’s first product, deliberately small to get experience with the process and show people that I’ve got the project management chops to handle it and deliver on time.

That being said – this is the real deal. I’m excited about this product and I think it’s at least as good as any such rules that have been published to date, and better than most. I’ve been using them with great success in my trial campaigns since February for Dragon Heresy (based on SRD5.1), and the “control point” methodology formed the core of GURPS Martial Arts: Technical Grappling, which Peter Dell’Orto uses to great effect in his Felltower Campaign, which you can read about over on Dungeon Fantastic.

So I’d very much appreciate your support, as a backer, spreading the word, or both.

FUNDED!

Things moved pretty fast!

Gaming Ballistic is thrilled to report that the Dungeon Grappling Kickstarter, with rules examples for Swords and Wizardry, Pathfinder, and 5e, has met its minimum funding goal and will now start working on stretch goals.

The manuscript is now going to be made available in both full-color PDF and print, and the first stretch goal is an eBook format, laid out in one-column simplicity for tablets and small screens.

Once we get that, we'll start upgrading the art to full color, piece by piece.

Give grappling its due, finally.

Live to Grapple. Grapple to Live. Dungeon Grappling.

The Astonishing Swordsmen & Sorcerers of Hyperborea (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1806106772/astonishing-swordsmen-and-sorcerers-of-hyperborea-0/description) second edition Kickstarter ends in about 24 hours - currently funded over 400% by 780 backers, all the stretch goals met. There's another thread HERE (http://www.therpgsite.com/showthread.php?35384-Astonishing-Swordsmen-amp-Sorcerers-of-Hyperborea-(Kickstarter)) in the News and Adverts forum with more details. Also, check out the Kickstarter updates page for many art previews. (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1806106772/astonishing-swordsmen-and-sorcerers-of-hyperborea-0/updates) Should be a really awesome refresh of the original - same rules, more content (monsters, spells, magic items) and hundreds of great new illustrations.

A lot has happened!

I was also invited on a session of James Introcaso's The Round Table. We talked for over an hour (http://www.thetomeshow.com/e/round-table-146-douglas-cole-and-dungeon-grappling/) about Dungeon Grappling, Dragon Heresy, RPG design, Fifth Edition, GURPS, and a bunch more.

Last Week of the Campaign

Dungeon Grappling (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2101297466/dungeon-grappling-rpg-supplement) is entering its final week of the crowdfunding campaign.

It’s been a great ride so far, and we’ve solidly funded and passed the first stretch goal. I’ve also (in a prior update) noted that I’ve placed all of the art orders in color already, so even though we’re not at the stretch goal for it yet, we’re tracking there, and I’d rather get you a great book early than any other option.

Welcome to the party, pal

How can you help me hit those last goals? Bring friends.

This is the time to share that you’ve backed the project with others, including perhaps the proprietor of your FLGS. The KS price is likely going to wind up being roughly half what the retail price will be, as it turns out. So you’re getting in at the right time.

The Art Cometh

As I showed on the prior update, I have started to get final art images. I suspect they’ll continue to come in through the end of December.

What might that look like?

[ATTACH=CONFIG]576[/ATTACH]

Is that final? No. Nathan may come up with something brilliant (the above is me and a really low-quality image editor), and that’s what layout pros are for – to take raw material and make it brilliant.

Speaking of Layout

I got some good feedback on the book from a reviewer. He was completely fired up about grappling, especially when he realized how many monsters really should be grappling as a primary attack mode.

There were some things that he recommended in layout and structure that would make it easier to use in play, and streamline knowledge uptake. Nathan and I are working through these bits.

Some are easy, such as reorganizing the Quick Reference section by game instead of by topic. So if you’re playing the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game, there’s a Pathfinder section for you. Same with Basic/S&W, and Fifth Edition. The grappling techniques reference also got some shorthand to define the mechanics to be used (Attack Roll vs. Grapple DC; if successful, stunned for 1d4 turns). A few things were deleted, and some things were substituted or added that really should have been there the whole time.

There was also a monster tweak (Constrictor Snakes are now PFRPG instead of 5e) so that there are four example monsters for 5e and PFRPG, and three for S&W.

I’m also going to add a combat example for each rules system.

Good feedback, then, and actionable, so action was taken.

What’s in a Fechtbuch?

So, if you’re in at the Fechtbuch level ($18+$5 shipping to almost everywhere), what do you get?


Probably $35-37 plus shipping if purchased piecemeal after the Kickstarter campaign ends.

Finish Strong

If you've already backed the project, thank you for your trust. I’m definitely on schedule to deliver on time, and (knock on wood) at the moment “on time” looks like a worst case situation.

Warsong. A tabletop rpg where you get to literally break the world. A game where you play an agent of destiny trying to save the world from being swallowed up by the Void. A game where you get to play a powerful character engaging with even more powerful adversaries. A game where you get to come to a session and change everything. Your imagination is the only limit to what you can achieve.

With a successful Kickstarter campaign for the core book under our belt we were not only able to create a magnificent high fantasy game, but we were able to deliver a bigger, better core book much earlier than the deadline. We want to do the same thing for the Fatemaster's Guide. With your help, we can make this, too, a reality

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2103913595/fatemasters-guide-warsong-game-supplement

We're hoping you'll come in and back the project. Thank you!

1879 Game Master's Guide. Part of the 1879 RPG (Player's Guide is already published)
[ATTACH=CONFIG]616[/ATTACH]
This isn't your great-great-grandfather's London!

Victoria and Albert rule over a steam-powered British Empire that spans two worlds. Thanks to the portal known as the Rabbit Hole, a train ride away from London lies the Grosvenor Land, a new world of fertile plains, towering mountains, giant insects, and Babylonians with battery powered zombies. Seems they got there first, three thousand years ago, and they're not exactly the welcoming sort. The Saurid tribes, lizard-like folk who ride theropods and pteranodons, complicate matters further. Back home on Earth, clockwork engineering has brought mechanical computing to the world, and micro-steam engines drive airships through the sky. Stranger things are afoot, too, as a bit of magic seems to have come into the world with the opening of the portal. People are changing. Secret societies are finding their ancient occult practices a bit more effective. Who knows what might be lurking in the forests these days, or in that shipment from China?

Play as Aristocrats, Soldiers, Big Game Hunters, Weird Scientists, Airship Pilots, Mediums, and more! Explore the Gruv! Maneuver for favour in court! Perform deniable actions for firms that would like their rivals impeded! Confront the terrors of the spirit world, or face off against the lethal fauna of a lost world!

The game is set in an alternate history version of Victorian London with steampunk elements.

Campaign status: 24 hours left and sitting at about 120%.

I'll cop to this recommendation coming late as there's less than 9 hours left, but check out Hex Kit. It's a hex mapping program that already has a fantasy tile set, and is looking to expand it's current fantasy tiles and add a space/scifi set too. The hook is that all of the hex art is hand painted by the creator, with a cool and distinctive style.

I think it's a safe bet since this is just funding an expansion to the current program, and I think a $20 pledge for the whole thing is a modest price.

Hi, guys! I'm smack dab in the middle of my 7-day challenge Kickstarter campaign for Kaigaku: The Ruined Kingdom (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1059971838/kaigaku-rpg-the-ruined-kingdom). It's a follow up campaign for Kaigaku, the samurai RPG that funded in September and released in January. This adventure plays like Shadow of the Colossus meets Dynasty Warriors.

We just need 400 buck more to make the basic goal. If you fund at 25 bucks you also get a copy of the Kaigaku core book following the campaign's completion. This book is more than a simple adventure, it also has many character options, especially for characters inspired by Mongol, Chinese and Persian history.

A bit about me. I used to write for L5R back in the day (plus Traveller and some other games) and I now work on Star Trek Adventures for Modiphius. This game is my way of scratching the samurai itch in the absence of supported games.

I came across this (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/magehand/world-engine-an-online-map-making-tool-for-tableto) today: "World Engine: An Online Map-Making Tool for Tabletop RPGs." (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/magehand/world-engine-an-online-map-making-tool-for-tableto)

World Engine lets you seamlessly combine freehand drawing and tile-based painting tools. The application runs in your browser on virtually any device – and because World Engine is designed from scratch for touch, all its capabilities are being optimized with touch and stylus in mind.

Creating great looking maps for your campaign has never been this simple or fun. Build your maps, export them for print or use inside your favorite virtual tabletop and get playing your game!

[...] World Engine supports all the mapping features you’d expect – pens, brushes, fills, layers, snap to grid, scaling, rotating – and more. It also provides the advanced tools that artists need to take their maps to the next level.

[...]  Making great maps requires solid building blocks. World Engine comes with a built-in library of hundreds of high-quality pre-made tiles, textures, and objects to build truly unique maps for your campaign.

But if that isn’t enough, World Engine’s marketplace puts an ever-expanding library of premium art from top fantasy artists at your disposal.

If you can imagine it, World Engine will let you build it.

It looks really nice, and it runs on a web browser so it supports all operating systems, (including Linux).  However, it's subscription based, running $5, $10, or $20 per month.  That's a bit of a downside, but the Kickstarter campaign has already reached over 90% of its goal in less than three days, so what do I know?

Yeah, as I said it is a downside.  It's most likely because it's browser-based, and servers cost money.  The good thing about that means that it'll support all computer operating systems, including Linux.  Plus, it says that you'll be able to export your data and maps.

Hey guys,

Wreck Age is a post-collapse 28mm skirmish game and narrative RPG set 500 years in the future; hundreds of years after a total societal collapse. We are now in the midst of The Resurgence, where pockets of society are just beginning to re-establish themselves. We are here to ask for your support to bring a long-term dream of ours to reality: vehicles!

[ATTACH=CONFIG]777[/ATTACH]

We're proud to launch this Kickstarter campaign for our resin and metal scale vehicle models. Each kit will be easy to assemble, convert, and paint. We're doing some neat stretch goals and have a bunch of cool add-ons too. Before unlocking these stretch goals, we're starting with 3 post-collapse car chassis. From there we have lots of cool stuff to unlock, including a truck chassis, motorcycles, ATV, horse riders, and buggies. With your help, we'll reach all of those goals and more!

In Wreck-Age, your miniatures battle it out on the tabletop in a unique narrative hybrid of efficient skirmish battle and role playing drama. By introducing vehicles, you’ll be able to expand the size and scope of your games. From the basic 3’ x 3’ gaming table through to huge layouts that stretch for dozens of meters, you can create death race scenarios, caravan chases, and run the gauntlet of ‘toll booths’ set up by highway robbers. The only limit is the amount of space you have, and your imagination. No matter how you choose to integrate vehicles into your Wreck-Age experience, you’ll be able to move your models around the board much more quickly than you would on foot, using simple rules mechanics that allow for depth of play, while maintaining ease of play, and ensuring record keeping is kept to a minimum. You can take control of a crew of your choosing, selecting from the nomadic Drifters, the pragmatic Stakers, the tech zealots known as the Reclaimers, or the vampyric Stitchers; you may even choose to venture off into the Wilds in your vehicles, without the support of an organized faction.

You can find out more at https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/hyacinthgames/wreck-age-post-collapse-vehicle-kits

Thanks for checking us out!

Alternity is Back (http://kck.st/2nG6zIC)! Several supplements are stretch goals...

[ATTACH=CONFIG]857[/ATTACH]

Alternity is back—and it’s better than ever!

Strange new worlds and deadly aliens? Mercenaries for hire? Post-apocalyptic survival? Explore your favorite visions of sci-fi adventure in the new Alternity Science Fiction Roleplaying Game from Sasquatch Game Studio.

Many Worlds, One Game: The Alternity Core Rulebook includes a wealth of campaign-building guidance and a modular rules design so that you can model your favorite SF setting or create your own. We're also launching with one "pre-built" setting, our Protostar universe . . . but we've got plans for more worlds if you want 'em! We plan to unlock at least one more setting through our stretch goals for the project.

Richard Baker helped create the 1997 Alternity Player’s Handbook, the Alternity Gamemaster’s Guide, the Star*Drive Campaign Setting, and many other Alternity products.

Bill Slavicsek, lead designer of the original Alternity game, consulted and advised in the creation of this new version of the game.

Stephen Schubert and David Noonan have each worked on dozens of products spanning multiple editions of D&D and other roleplaying games.

Our stable of artists, cartographers, and designers include Robert J Schwalb, Corey Macourek, Sean Macdonald, Christopher West, and more! Lee Smith, Ayan Nag, Roberto Gatto, and Justin Mayhew provided the concept art you see on this page, our website, and in the Alternity Quickstart guide.
Title: Two Dark Horse Comics™ We Think are FANTASTIC for Savage Worlds!

Like most of you, sometimes we see a movie, read a book, or devour a comic series and think “I HAVE to play in that world!” You can’t stop yourself from thinking up cool adventures, the kinds of characters your friends might play, the critters they’ll fight, and all the weird places you can send them to explore.

That’s how we felt when we discovered The Goon™ and Fear Agent™ comics. The Goon™ is like nothing else out there. It’s equal parts zombie-smashin’, Noir, shady crime drama, and Cthulhu. You can play (or fight!) talking spiders, giant squids, bog lurks, or any number of other weird and shady characters. And you can do it in STYLE. Check out the very first paragraph of the book:

“This is the Goon’s story from his earliest days, just as it was told to this author by Charlie Noodles. And we all know Charlie Noodles is good people, so shaddap while we spin youse a yarn.”

Combine all this with an utterly revoltin’ Plot Point Campaign called “From Hell’s Heart We Bite at Thee!” and we think this gem will turn into one of your all-time favorites.

The Goon™ RPG for Savage Worlds Kickstarter: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/545820095/the-goontm-for-savage-worlds/description



And Fear Agent™. Wow. Check out this pedigree: Created by Rick Remender (Black Science, Seven to Eternity, Captain America), Tony Moore (The Walking Dead, Deadpool, Exterminators), and Jerome Opeña (The Avengers, Moon Knight, Uncanny X-Force).

This has all the hallmarks you want from Pulp SciFi…planet hopping, weird aliens, and even time travel…but best of all are the twists. We can’t tell you much without giving away the important stuff, but let’s just say the comics have some fantastic twists you won’t see coming, and we made sure our game pays sufficient homage to it.

Fear Agent™ RPG for Savage Worlds Kickstarter: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/545820095/fear-agenttm-for-savage-worlds/description



Un-Stretch Goal!


As if all that weren’t enough reason to join us in launching these two fantastic series, we just announced our Un-Stretch Goal: PDFs for Deadlands, Rippers Resurrected, The Last Parsec, and East Texas University! Digital or higher level backers on either Goon™ RPG or Fear Agent™ RPG Kickstarter get these PDFs for FREE on DriveThruRPG after the Kickstarter!

Thanks for your support over the years, amigos y amigas! Please check out these latest Kickstarters and help us share the news. If you're looking to change up your gaming this spring, we think BOTH of these RPGs offer something fresh and new (or maybe that should be putrid and horrifying).

You can check out the latter for PWYW on DTRPG: http://www.drivethrurpg.com/browse/pub/3982/Dreamscape-Design

Journeymanne is written, the cover art has been done and paid for, the book is laid out just waiting for internal art. There are already a few pieces in there by Chris Holmes (son of J. Eric Holmes), plus some advance pieces I bought from Bradley K. Mcdevitt. There is quite a big line-up of artists, all of whom are chosen to complement one another. Russ Nicholson is one.

Hello and thank you for your time,

We are a very small group located in Monmouth, OR. Gaming is something we have been passionate about for as long as we can remember. Since the first days of dressing up for DnD campaigns, wearing tights and “crafting” our weapons out of melted coat hangers (specifically referring to a rather embarrassing story of our lead developer), to the beginning of this process, our passion for tabletop gaming has continuously grown. This project started as an idea formed two years back and has grown into an adventure. We discussed content that we wish we could see, classes that deserved more love and attention and decided it was time to create a system of our own. Now, on to the game.

Rebirth aims to shine light on the roles that are often pushed into the dark. There are professions designed specifically to craft powerful equipment and deadly poisons. The support professions have been pushed, making them almost essential for a party’s survival. Each class is created to bring something unique to the table, allowing for incredible synergies and a memorable playstyle.

Rebirth is a tabletop RPG that forces the players to think and plan ahead. Resource management is present in almost every aspect of the game. The combat system uses “events,” points that are spent to make actions. However, if a character overexerts, spending all of their events during a round, then their defensive score suffers for lack of defensive preparation. If events are unused, they function as defensive preparation, granting a bonus to the character’s defensive score and making them harder to hit.
Crafting is essential to survival in the world of Rebirth and it displays an additional aspect of resource management. The currency used is bone shards, remains of dead reborn that were once reanimated using demonic power. Because of the demonic power imbued in these bone shards, they are also the catalyst used in the creation of potions and poisons and the energy used to craft artifacts, equipment imbued with abilities such as swords bursting with flames. This means that the player must weigh the value of the crafted gear (assuming the crafting check succeeds), with the value of their currency.

For more information regarding the system as well as the lore, please visit our kickstarter. Your contributions are appreciated.  We understand that our target is low, however, we are fairly far into the process and will appreciate any contributions we receive to help with the costs.

Thank you again for your time,
The Rebirth Team

Nope. Todd is legit and he's been sending around a playtest draft of the product, basically in a close-to-done state. Risks here are low.

The Triten Gaming System

Hello everyone!  My name is David Prizio and I wanted to share our Kickstarter project for the Triten Gaming System with the folks here.  As of today, we're just shy of halfway through our campaign and rapidly approaching 200% funding, which we're extremely excited about.  The Triten Gaming System is an entirely new set of medieval fantasy pen and paper mechancis, built from the ground up to be a robust and intuitive game system to allow you to create your own worlds and adventures.

We've done a Q&A with the Hardboiled GMshoe, Dan Davenport, which you can find a log of here: https://gmshoe.wordpress.com/2017/06/08/qa-david-prizio-triten-gaming-system/ (https://gmshoe.wordpress.com/2017/06/08/qa-david-prizio-triten-gaming-system/)

We'd also love to get in touch with other bloggers and reviewers as well!

If this sounds like something you might be interested in, we'd appreciate it if you'd come check out our campaign!

Glynn Seal of MonkeyBlood Design (https://monkeyblooddesign.co.uk/epages/48e22cbf-79d8-4df7-bc38-7ed74676d5b2.mobile?ClassicView=1) is running a Kickstarter for an England-inspired setting and bestiary called The Midderlands (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/608764698/the-midderlands-an-osr-mini-setting-and-bestiary/description). He says, "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." It's statted for Swords & Wizardry Complete. As of now, it's about a third funded and has until July 31 to fund completely.

Glynn does great work, so I think it's worth a look! :)

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 (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/608764698/the-midderlands-an-osr-mini-setting-and-bestiary)

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

[ATTACH=CONFIG]1192[/ATTACH] (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/608764698/the-midderlands-an-osr-mini-setting-and-bestiary)

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."

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!

(http://goblinoidgames.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/BP-cover-teaser-232x300.jpg) (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1895361773/burial-plots)

BURIAL PLOTS (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1895361773/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."

Remember Battlelords of the 23rd century?  the totally gonzo sci-fi RPG that had the alien lizards who would have farting contests, and if they shat themselves they lost?

guess what?
there is a new edition in the works, and it is on Kickstarter
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1580315595/battlelords-science-fiction-rpg-revised-edition?ref=category_newest

in it you and the rest of the PCs are soldiers for hire, working for what ever corporation is willing to pay you.  And unlike Shadowrun, the people who hire you tend not to screw you over.  Mostly because your starting PC has enough weaponry and armor to not only destroy a city block, but survive being at ground zero.

(Yeah, I know there was an awful lot more to the game then the farting lizards, but that stuck in my head more than anything else.)

So if you have ever had a day where you and the rest of your group wanted to just mindlessly destroy whatever lies in your path, this is the game for you.

Samurai Dice is now on Kickstarter. It's a spinoff of our twice successfully funded game line, Kaigaku. Samurai Dice is a hybrid card-and-dice game with heavy RPG elements. Each turn you select one of your four Heroes to attack one of the Enemies on the table and roll five dice. The dice are color-coded so you can quickly determine the outcome of each turn. The blue die represents you, while the red die represents your enemy and the three white dice are the results. Any white dice that roll equal to or below the blue die cause damage to your enemy, while those that roll above the blue die damage you. If the red die is higher than the blue die your enemy activates their deadly ability.

We've got lots of accessories lined up for this game, including adventure and dungeon decks that you can use with Samurai Dice, Kaigaku or any OSR RPG. I'm very excited about this game and proud of its quality. Check it out and sign up today!

@Pundit, fantastic art and no map this time.

Mini-Dungeon Tome for D&D 5th Edition or Pathfinder

[ATTACH=CONFIG]1697[/ATTACH]

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/adventureaweek/mini-dungeon-tome-for-5th-edition-or-pathfinder-rp/description (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/adventureaweek/mini-dungeon-tome-for-5th-edition-or-pathfinder-rp/description)

This is something my fellow GMs might find of use. It's a collection of 2-page dungeons (currently over 120 and likely to expand even more with stretch goals) for D&D or Pathfinder, though they look simple enough to use in other systems. I know that's how I'm most likely to use them. I'm in for a hardcover since I'm a sucker for anything to make my life easier and give me campaign ideas, but even the PDF-only level isn't a terrible deal given that the final product is probably going to hit 300 pages or more.
Title: Lost Hall of Tyr: Dómstóllinn: Kickstarter is now LIVE
Post by: DouglasCole on October 03, 2017, 05:54:12 PM
Lost Hall of Tyr: Dómstóllinn (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2101297466/lost-hall-of-tyr-a-5e-adventure-dungeon-grappling)

Lost Hall started as a GenCon game called "The Grappling Smackdown." It was my first GMing experience at a convention, and it was also a scenario designed to showcase monsters that grapple using the rules from my book Dungeon Grappling.

I ran it twice, and it was very successful. It also clearly had enough hooks in it to expand into a full adventure. So I did.

[ATTACH=CONFIG]1708[/ATTACH]

The module is set in a culture and realm that uses the mythology and legends of the Asgardians, and the Nordic/viking culture, as a basis. It include, of course, advice on how to drop it into*any*campaign and setting, so long as the journey and quest takes the party into the mountains and wilderness, in search of an object or goal that is valuable because of its history and contents, but not powerful by itself.

The book contains:

Preface. The preface introduces the adventure as having started life as a 2-hr demonstration scenario run at GenCon that introduced two groups to the alternate grappling rules in Dungeon Grappling. Fifteen players, two sessions, great fun. It was then expanded into the volume being kickstarted.

Introduction. The local geography and the events leading to the quest to rediscover the Dómstóllinn, the Hall of Judgment, are laid out with enough background to drive the adventure if running Lost Hall of Tyr as a stand-alone demonstration. The introduction also provides some inspiration to use the adventure in other campaigns, settings, locations, or even as part of a mega-dungeon!

Lost Hall of Tyr. The core scenario. It includes a flowchart so that the GM can see how the different encounter areas connect, and then 20 adventure segments - a journey, a riddle, a combat encounter, or a physical feat. Each encounter will include Challenges, telling the GM what must be overcome, Concealed information that the players don't know initially, Alternatives that talk about ways to short-circuit, bypass, or otherwise not just Leroy Jenkins one's way through a challenge, and Rewards, where appropriate. Ransom encounter tables, encounter map images, and evocative artwork paint the story of the challenges faced.

Wilderness Travel. Travelling overland, especially carrying an adventurer's usual load of gear, is hard work. This short chapter discusses ways to make that work dramatic and fun, including guidance for food, water, hunting, preserving meat, and rules for cold weather and climate. Not all challenges have talons and teeth.

Bestiary. Each monster that is listed in the scenario is given statistics, including a quick-reference chart for grappling, as well as statistics compatible with the Dungeon Grappling rules.

Dungeon Grappling Quick-Start. Even if you don't have the book, you can still use the rules. Two pages of grappling the way it should be: fast, fun, and well-integrated with the Fifth Edition basic rules mechanics.

All together, this is a complete adventure that can be run on its own or dropped into an existing campaign.

[ATTACH=CONFIG]1709[/ATTACH]

Let's get something straight right off the bat: You do*not*need to have, use, or even*like*Dungeon Grappling to use this adventure.

You need not entirely buy in to the Viking-ish, pseudo-Norse setting material that serves as background.

I mean, you*should*love Dungeon Grappling, as a great set of grappling rules that don't suck. And Woden will cast his unflinching eye on you with displeasure if you dis the setting. But, sigh . . . such things are not required.

I did, however, condense the Dungeon Grappling mechanics into a two-page quick-start that accurately represents how I both taught and ran the game at GenCon. You can attack to grapple, defend from grapples, and even cause injury by grappling, at the very least. Just the basics. But in Indianapolis, that was enough.

Each encounter has monsters that might use grappling against you or be grappled more effectively than they are struck. Well, except for a few where that's not true, because you have to keep everyone guessing.

It makes for a really different kind of game, in a good way.

[ATTACH=CONFIG]1711[/ATTACH]

This is my second kickstarter. It's probably a bit better organized than before, and definitely it's farther along in terms of investment: I have more faith in myself and my ability to deliver a product.



So, is there anything*not*done? Well, sure. I've commissioned some preliminary art, and you'll see that in the first two weeks of updates. And if it just passes the first goal, I'll be able to populate the existing art spaces.

But there's a bunch more art that*could*be there, and with a moderate achievement in stretch goals (roughly what Dungeon Grappling raised, actually), more art will be added.

Also: I've got a special guest star, so to speak. Roland Warzecha, of Dimicator, is perhaps one of the finest Sword-and-Buckler Western Martial Arts instructors and fighters in the world. He's also an amazing illustrator. We got to know each other through Asfolk, the Viking Martial Arts studio I joined (and where I'm now an assistant instructor) researching Dragon Heresy. He's agreed to a commission for at least one piece for the project, and I sincerely hope it does well enough to add a few more.

But really, that's it. I could ship the thing on Monday and the adventure would be playable, while the book would be very attractive (if somewhat incomplete) . . . but that's not how we do things around here.

So, I hope you help me bring Lost Hall of Tyr to life, as you helped me bring Dungeon Grappling to life.

We're in the last weekend of the Lost Hall of Tyr Kickstarter (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2101297466/lost-hall-of-tyr-a-5e-adventure-dungeon-grappling)!

The project has funded and the stretch goals have been consolidated and pulled in (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2101297466/lost-hall-of-tyr-a-5e-adventure-dungeon-grappling/posts/2021614).

The project was reviewed a few more times, with favorable comments: Three Good Reviews (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2101297466/lost-hall-of-tyr-a-5e-adventure-dungeon-grappling/posts/2024820).

And Roland Warzecha completed his full-page mural (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2101297466/lost-hall-of-tyr-a-5e-adventure-dungeon-grappling/posts/2016501) that will lead in the two-page grappling quick-start. If you like bad-ass female vikings beheading hobgoblins (with Roland's wife and Roland used as figure models for the warrior and hobgoblins, respectively!) this is worth checking out.

I'd like to draw particular attention to the Stythja ("Patron") levels. For your $200 pledge (more for Roland's images) you and I will work out a character suitable for the adventure using a preview of the Dragon Heresy RPG rules (the setting of which informs and drives this adventure as background), and one of the artists will provide an illustration of your character. The illustrated characters will be published in a (free to backers) book of pre-gens, and I assure you . . . they'll appear again one day!

In any case, this is a great side-quest (says others, not me) that will provide 4-8 hours of play and can be easily transported into other settings or even systems (a friend of mine who was given a preview copy even converted it for GURPS (http://www.ravensnpennies.com/2017/10/gurps101-gurps-justice-and-dungeon.html#.WfScBmi3yUk)).

The project gets very cool as we hit stretch goals. OSR conversions, more art, and if we somehow hit 375 print copies, a true offset print run.

Please throw in!

I added swords and wizardry conversion notes (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2101297466/lost-hall-of-tyr-a-5e-adventure-dungeon-grappling/posts/2028780) to Lost Hall of Tyr after a brainstorm last night. So that stretch goal has been pulled in and is incorporated into the book. So if the OSR is your thing, it should be fairly seamless to play through it. This isn't a separate copy of the book; the notes are minimal (most of the book is not system specific) but should be sufficient, and are incorporated into monster stat blocks and notes on task resolution, which plays a bigger role in 5e than S&W from a mechanics perspective.

RPG Update
Irregular Webcomic Kickstarter


First up for the Holiday Season, some fun and games with Montana Jones and his wacky adventures in the Cliffhanger Comic. David Morgan-Mar graciously asked me to provide some 1930's style archaeological adventure maps for the print edition of his web comic anthology which is currently being offered at Kickstarter. I was more than happy to oblige.

Just to let you know, this Kickstarter has already funded, ...we should cross the 5k mark a bit later on today, and you are cordially invited to participate to receive the printed copy of the second edition. This comic is suitable for all ages, and is really punny! Hahaha... Looking forward to sharing some holiday goodness, in providing a most excellent holiday stocking stuffer for all of you this Christmas Season!

The Midderlands Expanded Kickstarter is now LIVE!!!
Following the successful Kickstarter last year for The Midderlands - An OSR Setting & Bestiary, we are here expanding the setting. Also a GM Screen, Die-drop card and also get items from the original Kickstarter!

"[The Midderlands] as a small area campaign supplement is the best I've ever seen, displacing Dave Arneson's Blackmoor First Fantasy Campaign area, which up until now - and that's decades - has been my favorite one."
- Matt Finch (Creator of Swords & Wizardry).

DEAD IN THE WEST KICKSTARTER IS LIVE!

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1367347179/dead-in-the-west-a-tabletop-rpg-set-in-the-mythic?ref=nav_search&result=project&term=dead%20in%20the%20west

Hello wonderful people! I recently launched a Kickstarter for my first game, Dead in the West, and it's going pretty great! In just a little over 24 hours, we've been able to raise 17% of our overall goal!

Dead in the West is a storytelling-heavy game set in the Mythic Old West - think old cowboy movies or pulp novels. There's a heavy emphasis on individuality and player empowerment, along with a number of quirky on-theme mechanics (like being to force suspicious NPCs into Quickdraw shoot-outs, and completing daring feats to earn points that could save your characters life later on). Skills, abilities and character progression are special - your character evolves and changes based on what you do in the game rather than simply progressing down a tree. If your character is a pacifist who uses a whip, they might learn how to snatch guns right out from people's hands with it. If they insist on cooking despite being bad at it, they may gain the ability to make a stew that never grants the same bonus twice. If they're perceptive and ask a lot of questions about people, they may learn how to give folks the stink-eye, estimating their HP and abilities through through harmless small-talk.

I'm really excited about the game, and hope you'll all consider giving it a look. If you're interested in the game, it was Dan from RPGnet that pointed me in this direction. I'll be doing a Live Q&A over on the RPGnet IRC on the 11th of April, 7:30 Central, and will be happy to answer any questions people have then (and here, too)!

Freedom Squadron - A Savage Worlds Setting (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/supermouse/freedom-squadron-a-savage-worlds-setting/description)

Quote
It is the year 2051. After the startling discovery of VENOM--a paramilitary organization and global conspiracy that's been interfering in world events since the end of the 19th century--the United Nations and leaders of the free world have been shaken to their core. In the aftermath of World War III, which they started, VENOM's clear goal is world domination, and they will stop at nothing to achieve it.

The world's response? Choose the greatest hero of the war, General Abraham Steel, and charge him to recruit an elite fighting force to oppose VENOM and protect liberty for all. That force, comprised of the best-of-the-best from all over the globe, is Freedom Squadron!  

Players take on the role of those who've heeded the call to action. They are new Recruits who must first earn their stripes to become Commandos. Eventually, if they live up to the expectations of trainers like Sandbar, Corporal Carnage, Preedatore, and Blindsight, they may earn their Code Names and carry the fight to VENOM anywhere in the world... and beyond!


For fans of 80's cartoons this is project you may be interested in. It's starting out as a homage to Gi Joe but will grow from there, including transforming robots. If you check the updates there have been a lot of sneak peeks on what will be in the books from Ninjas to vehicle stats.

The Dragon Heresy Introductory Set Kickstarter (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2101297466/the-dragon-heresy-introductory-set-fantasy-rpg) launched this morning at 10am!

We've had a great start, with more than 1/3 of the way to funding in*two hours.*I'm especially pleased at the interest in the color printing, and very grateful for it.

Of course, we're not there yet, and the best thing folks can do right now, in this critical first 48 hours of the campaign, is get the word out.

I'll be posting links to a few podcasts that I recorded over the last week talking more about both the setting and the mechanics, and will be appearing on a few more during the campaign.

If you want to chat with me real time, ask questions, or just hang out, drop on by the Gaming Ballistic Discord Channel (https://discord.gg/8jmpwU).

Once I get back home from work, I'll be making a few updates, as per requests in the Comments section.



With that . . . please join me on the Dragon Heresy Kickstarter (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2101297466/the-dragon-heresy-introductory-set-fantasy-rpg)!

Worth checking out -

First, Beasts and Cannibals,  (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1806106772/hyperborea-beasts-and-cannibals?ref=creator_nav) two new modules for Astonishing Swordsmen & Sorcerers of Hyperborea that would be easily portable to any old school system. As of the last update, it was well 186% funded and the project completions were: writing 100%, maps 100%, cover art 100%, interior art 82%, editing 60% and layout 40%. This is Jeff's fifth Kickstarter, so he knows what he's doing. With only 67 hours left, might want hurry over there and pledge if it interests you.

* The Anthropophagi of Xambaala, by Corey R. Walden, is an adventure in HYPERBOREA designed for from four to six characters of 1st through 3rd level.

* The Beasts of Kraggoth Manor, by Tim Callahan, is an adventure in HYPERBOREA designed for from four to six characters of 4th through 6th level.

Second, a board game redeux called Fireball Island (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/restorationgames/fireball-island-80s-board-game-reignited-and-resto) that looks pretty fun, especially if you have kids and especially especially if they just watched and liked the new Jumanji movie (like mine). Seems like a great gateway drug to roleplaying games. Don't know much about the makers, but it's their second KS and fourth game overall.

The Battlecruiser Alamo Kickstarter is live here! (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/shadesofvengeance/battlecruiser-alamo-rpg-an-era-d10-game?ref=1k803l)

Hi everyone! It's been a while since I posted here about a project, and I thought it was about time that I did so again!

Battlecruiser Alamo (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/shadesofvengeance/battlecruiser-alamo-rpg-an-era-d10-game?ref=1k803l) is a series of Sci_Fi novels by critically-acclaimed author Richard Tongue, set in a universe where exploration of space is a goal, but betrayal is around every corner!
You can discover alien artifacts and experience the mysteries of new worlds, but the fledgling Triplanetary Confederation is under threat from many sides. The UN of Earth don't want them to succeed any more than the spies of the Lunar Republic do, and both will stop at nothing to turn the fragile alliance on itself.

This game carries an interesting quirk - the characters are not one individual but two. This provides some great new opportunities for storytelling within the universe, as the Officer may be operating the starship in battle while the Espatier is fighting off hostile natives on a planet, or boarding the other ship! The GM can flick between these two alternatives ever session, or even within sessions in order to give the players an feeling of being set upon from all sides.

Character Creation Video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oT1DFilvHUw)
Combat Video (featuring Combat Hacking!) (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7XsP3YtToEQ)

Powered by the Era d10 Rule Set, this game is cross-compatible with Era: The Consortium, Era: Lyres, Era: The Empowered and Era: Survival, meaning that if you want to add other rules into this setting, such as limited ammo or resting penalties, that's easily accomplished.

Once again, it's on Kickstarter right now (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/shadesofvengeance/battlecruiser-alamo-rpg-an-era-d10-game?ref=1k803l), and I'll obviously be more than happy to answer any questions you guys have!

The Dragon Heresy Introductory Set Kickstarter (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2101297466/the-dragon-heresy-introductory-set-fantasy-rpg) is in its final 48 hours.

I've written a summary post (https://gamingballistic.com/2018/04/26/10464/) talking about the game, some reviews, podcasts, playtests, and actual play streaming it's been featured on, and included a few images of what you'll be getting at various levels.

We're steaming to nearly 400% funding and have a good shot - if we hit our stride in the next two days - of closing in on a spectacular offset print run.

Please check it out. Pledge if you can, share it out if you can't!

It's called Choose your Own Sci-Fi  Stock Art and it features a metric ton of his pieces up for backers. He's going to release them in a format that lets you configure elements in the picture for customization. You can use the art for GM handouts or for publishing.

Blessed Machine is happy to announce the Kickstarter for our new setting, Secret Agents of CROSS is now live (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/965139169/secret-agents-of-cross-for-savage-worlds)!  We are also excited to announce that Blessed Machine is now an official licensee of the Savage Worlds game system. We were looking for a system that could model the setting's concept that CROSS agents are the best of the best. We discovered Savage Worlds and its Wild Card concept, exploding dice, and bennie rules and after a few playtests, we knew we had to produce Secret Agents of CROSS for Savage Worlds.  Thanks to the Pinnacle team for helping us work through the process and become an official licensee.

The world of Secret Agents of CROSS is similar to our own with slightly more advanced technology.  Religious persecution came into existence nearly as soon as religions appeared. The supernatural has existed in the world since the beginning of time and continues to exploit the world from their extra-dimensional realms and secret lairs.  Cardinal James McDonell created CROSS, a clandestine spy agency also known as the Catholic Response Organization to Strategize and Strike. McDonnell tasked CROSS to take the Pope's prayers and convert them into actions.  He and his command staff create missions to protect the flock from evil using cutting-edge technology coupled with saintly magic honed over 2000 years of history.

Secret Agents of CROSS is a full-color 170-page setting book.  It is your guide on how the world of CROSS operates, how to make player characters, and how to run CROSS missions steeped in secret spy stuff, religious history, modern terrorism, and the supernatural.

Secret Agents of CROSS is a full-color 170-page setting book.  It is your guide on how the world of CROSS operates, how to make player characters, and how to run CROSS missions steeped in secret spy stuff, religious history, modern terrorism, and the supernatural.

Gaming Ballistic is THRILLED to be the first third-party vendor to be granted a license to produce material for the Dungeon Fantasy Roleplaying Game (Powered by GURPS) from Steve Jackson Games.

Hall of Judgment (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2101297466/hall-of-judgment-a-dungeon-fantasy-rpg-supplement) directly supports the excellent DFRPG Boxed Set. It provides a mini-setting and adventure, in full color, bookmarked and layered for the PDF, and with a print copy available for backers who wish a high-quality tangible reward.



Hall of Judgment is an adventure micro-setting for four to six 250-point characters, made under license to Gaming Ballistic, LLC for use with the Dungeon Fantasy Roleplaying Game (which is required and referenced in the book).

Hall of Judgment (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2101297466/hall-of-judgment-a-dungeon-fantasy-rpg-supplement) is the first third-party expansion for Steve Jackson Games' Dungeon Fantasy RPG. It's an experiment for both SJG and  Gaming Ballistic, and both companies hope that it will be successful. I'd love to have your support in making it so!

The Midderlands Expanded Kickstarter is now LIVE!!!
Following the successful Kickstarter last year for The Midderlands - An OSR Setting & Bestiary, we are here expanding the setting. Also a GM Screen, Die-drop card and also get items from the original Kickstarter!

"[The Midderlands] as a small area campaign supplement is the best I've ever seen, displacing Dave Arneson's Blackmoor First Fantasy Campaign area, which up until now - and that's decades - has been my favorite one."
- Matt Finch (Creator of Swords & Wizardry).

Check it out here!

Title: Hall of Judgment - final week!
Post by: DouglasCole on July 09, 2018, 04:07:49 PM

Hall of Judgment Final Week


We're in the final week for Hall of Judgment (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2101297466/hall-of-judgment-a-dungeon-fantasy-rpg-supplement), and there's been a lot of movement on the Kickstarter! We passed $12,000 and that puts us on track to more-or-less equal Dragon Heresy unless we see something, as Mr. Furious would say, "either very good or very bad."

Layout: Block and Tackle
I've been working really hard to pull things together, and the efforts are paying off. In quick-point format:



I've got 22 days left until the deadline set by "we plan to release the product in August" promise I made in the April 1 announcement, and the PDF will be ready by then.

Printing
That leaves us with the print question. At this point, we've got 275 (ish) print backers. That's more than enough to get us out of POD, but not enough to drive to a full offset print run.

Wild and crazy things can happen, and I hope they do. What does this mean? It means unless we see a wild uptick, I'll be using a short-run printer in the UK to deliver 140gsm interior pages (that's about 93# paper; typical DriveThru is 70#/105gsm).

Because the printing is in the UK and the fulfillment partner I'll be using is also in the UK, I expect to be working hard on the shipping side of things. I'll probably know more in two weeks on that score.

Ask Me Anything
I'm working on a "final week Ask Me Anything" session, probably a few hours long, sometime this week. Not sure what that will look like, but I want to do it and take questions about the process, the adventure, and anything gaming-related. Or viking related.

Campaign Close Process
That brings us to the finishing touches.

The campaign closes July 14, which is this coming Saturday. I would deeply appreciate re-shares on social media, and talking about the project in general. The better we do, the more likely SJG is to want to do this again.

When the campaign closes, I'll ready and fire up the Backerkit phase, which will have a short survey to get your pledges allocated to product. For those not getting add-ons, is all you'll do with the "survey" is:



It is pretty important to be prompt on this one, and the survey period will be short: Probably 7-10 working days.

Note that Backerkit does not set the pace for*digital*reward delivery. As long as the funds settle and there's no weirdness with payment (this happens every campaign; it's depressingly normal) you'll get your PDF on August 1.

So that's it! This is the home stretch, and while there's still work to be done, that work is pretty well defined at this point.

Grab your axe and shield, board your longship and let's finish strong (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2101297466/hall-of-judgment-a-dungeon-fantasy-rpg-supplement). Glory awaits.

48 Hours to go!

The Hall of Judgment Kickstarter (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2101297466/hall-of-judgment-a-dungeon-fantasy-rpg-supplement) is the first 3rd-party license for the Dungeon Fantasy RPG, and one of the rare 3rd-party licenses that Steve Jackson Games has issued. It's over 400 backers and 400% funding and climbing.

What's in it for you?



This book is VERY different, and quite frankly, better in almost every way than Lost Hall of Tyr, from which it sprung. 128 pages (rather than 64), full color, awesome art, and layered and hyperlinked for ease of use. The print copies will be 93#/140gsm interior paper; fulfillment is from the UK so international shipping should be pretty affordable.

Finally: let's not beat around the bush: let me quote from the aforementioned foreword: "...it bodes well for Dungeon FantasyRoleplaying Game fans and fans of SJ Games products in general. We now have evidence that licensing third-party publishers to crowdfund content for our games pays off. That isn't a guarantee we'll agree to every proposal--our standards remain exacting, and we still prefer
people we know and trust--but it means we'll listen. Intently." -Sean Punch

Please support the Hall of Judgment Kickstarter (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2101297466/hall-of-judgment-a-dungeon-fantasy-rpg-supplement). 48 hours to go.

So I have a kickstarter for the next edition of Neoclassical Geek Revival, along with an Omnibus of all my OSR/NGR dual statted adventures (such as A Thousand Dead Babies, The Gnomes of Levnec, Under the Waterless Sea, The Price of Evil and many others),  and a new desert themed dungeon adventure "The City of Tears".

[ATTACH=CONFIG]2645[/ATTACH]

Its 64 pages of desert adventure set in an abandoned city on the shores of the salted sea. A small town's worth of looters, bandits, and merchants camp outside it's gates to pick it clean of valuables.  But there is still one place no looter has dared rob.

This adventure features the talented layout work of Jensen Toperzer , the maps of Dyson Logos, and the art of Jez Gordon.

Please consider backing this kickstarter (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1594988817/neoclassical-geek-revival) , its over 2000% funded and we are always looking to hit the next stretch goal.

Howdy folks!

Although it's now available for the HERO System, ICONS, BASH!, Supergame, and SUPERS! Revised, the Superverse has its origins The Freedom Ring and The Iron Gauntlet - two character books I published for SUPERS! first edition. Artist and game designer Russ Boyd did the art and character designs on those two books, so he's really the co-creator of the original characters. Heck, he helped write "Will of Iron, Heart of Gold" - the first of the four adventures appearing in the current Superverse project.

In order to honor Russ and the origins of the Superverse, I'm offering Superverse Classic as part of The Superverse Kickstarter. This is a compilation that reprints The Freedom Ring and The Iron Gauntlet (with all of Russ' original art).

If you're interested, check out the recently added Tiers 5+ and 6+ on the Kickstarter.  https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1884184046/the-superverse?ref=project_build

Well, here we are - nearly at the end of The Superverse Kickstarter campaign.  We are far from funding and coming up on only two days left to pledge.  I'm holding out for a flurry of activity here at the end, but understand that we might not make it, and that's okay.  This is my first attempt at a Kickstarter campaign, and running it has taught me A LOT.  I want to thank everybody who's even considered contributing to the project, but my biggest thanks, of course, go to my wonderful backers.  Your support, your private messages, and your enthusiasm have sustained me throughout.  If this campaign goes the distance, it's quite literally because of you.  If it fails?  I'm reminded of the answer to Thomas Wayne's question: "Why do we fall, Bruce?" The answer: "So we can learn to pick ourselves up."  If this fails, I will trim the edges of my (perhaps too) ambitious project and try again.  But we're not there yet!  Let's see what happens - ONLY TWO DAYS LEFT TO PLEDGE!  https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1884184046/the-superverse?ref=user_menu

Hello everyone!

I would like to invite you to take a look at Vanguard d100, a new RPG fit for fantasy or historical campaigns! As the name indicates, it is based on the d100 dice but the game focuses on giving the players freedom to improve their characters any way they want to. No levels, no classes and no gigantic list of fixed spells! The game allows you to create your own spells! It also gives game masters the freedom to choose which rules they want to use. For example, it is possible to remove the entire magic chapter without breaking game balance. Or remove the luck mechanics. This 'modular' feature ensures it can be used in most fantasy or historical games, from high-fantasy to low-fantasy or even historical games. As for its core system, it is simple: roll 1d100, add modifiers and if the result if above 100 you succeed in your task.
The combat system is also simple and fast.

You can find more information about the game in its IndieGoGo campaign page: Vanguard d100 IndieGoGo (https://igg.me/at/vanguard-rpg/x/18694040)
And in its facebook page: Vanguard d100 Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/VanguardIndigogo/)


Regarding myself, I'm already an experienced gamer (tabletop and computer RPGs as well as board games) and have been designing games for the past decade. My previous big project was the adaptation of the Mass Effect saga into a tabletop RPG. Mass Effect d20 was born 7 years ago, shared with thousands around the world and is still being played by many. It has been kept alive and up to date, shared for free in its website: Mass Effect d20 (http://www.masseffectd20.com/)

Feel free to visit either and ask me any questions you might have.

Yesterday, the final PDF for Hall of Judgment (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2101297466/hall-of-judgment-a-dungeon-fantasy-rpg-supplement) was approved by Steve Jackson Games for release to Kickstarter backers, and was distributed via Backerkit. The KS closed July 14, and the product was sent out Aug 10. The physical copies are still pending, but will be ready at the printer Aug 22 (a Wednesday) and will likely be on their way to international backers by Friday (UK Royal Mail), and arrive in MN for packaging and US distribution early that following week. I do expect folks to have their physical copies by mid-September.

If folks are interested in the game and are in the "not the USA" bucket for shipping, you'll want to pre-order now on Backerkit (https://hoj-dfrpg.backerkit.com/hosted_preorders) to take advantage of favorable shipping rates: $6 in the UK (and the USA, but that's neither here nor there); $9 for the EU, and $12 to "everywhere else."

Triskelion Space is now life on Kickstarter! Following the success of the Exodus System this summer, we've created a refined edition of the rules geared towards sci-fi games. It's fast and easy to learn how to play, and you can get a session going on the first night with maybe half an hour or an hour of prep time.

Character creation is very flexible without the involvement of a system like Pathfinder. You create your own class at the beginning of the game by combining Roles and Flavors. Every character has abilities that allow them to shine both in and out of combat, so no PC is out of the spotlight for very long.

I'd post pictures if I could. The art is being taken care of mainly by Dean Spencer, David Okum and Matt Bulahao. Check it out here and let's make Triskelion Space a success!

Triskelion Space is an epic sci-fantasy space opera where you play epic heroes in a rag-tag band that takes on impossible odds to restore peace to the galaxy. Play as an Ace Pilot, Bounty Hunter, Star Mystic, Cosmic Wanderer and more. If you've ever enjoy a sci-fi property with "Star", "Babylon", "Doctor" or "Hitchhiker" in the title, there's something for you here!

I've teamed up with new artists, including Matt Bulahao, David Okum (of Okumarts) and Dean Spencer. Come check it out here:

Age of Myth - Ancient World / Mythological setting for 5th Edition goes live tonight on Kickstarter! The hardcover supplement
is full-color, fully-illustrated, and got a really good response in playtesting at GenCon this year.

There's a class preview - Gorgon Patron for the Warlock - and a free ancient-world adventure you can drop straight into any campaign at the KS preview link: rebrand.ly/ageofmyth (http://rebrand.ly/ageofmyth) - while you're there, be sure to click the heart button at the top so you get notified when the project goes live!
 
The book provides new rules for magic items generated by a character;s heroic deeds, advice/strategies for running a high magic (without turning it steampunk), 13 new race options, 16 new class options, dozens of magic items, and a series of four one-shot mini adventures you can drop into your campaigns.
 
The core book is already written at ~80 pages or so, though we'll launch with 90-100 at a minimum when the book comes out. Each stretch goal adds ~30 pages to the book.

Check out the link, provide feedback if you like, and then spread the word so that you can have more content!

The Road To Hell is an adventure for Lamentations of the Flame Princess and other Old School RPGs. It is now live on Kickstarter until Tuesday 30th October, the day before Halloween, when if it funds all backers can download the draft adventure, complete with rough (but functional) maps and six premade characters.

The Road to Hell on Kickstarter.
 (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/645319106/the-road-to-hell)

(http://sorcererundermountain.d101games.com/files/2018/09/roth-ks-image.jpg)

Set in Jacobean England, this adventure sees a band of veteran (5th Level) but down at heel adventurers take a desperate journey between Chester and Manchester in the North West of England, that takes them into Hell itself. It is a weird fantasy adventure that sees the adventurers thrown into magical situations outside of their normal lives, and challenge fiends that would eat their flesh and steal their souls.

The book will feature the work of:

Dan Barker (Monkey, Tournaments of Madness and Death) on internal art.
Jon Hodgson (numerous credits, including WHFRP 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th editions, D&D 4th and 5th edition) on the front cover,
Paul Mitchener (Age of Arthur, Liminal) on the editorial duties.
Glynn Seal (2018 Golden ENnie Award winner for Cartography for his work on the Midderlands).

I own Dusk City Outlaws and it's really good. This looks very promising as well.

And this, which is in my opinion, worth every penny!

Tales of the Old Margreve: 5th Edition Forest Adventures

5th Edition roleplaying adventures in the deep and menacing forest, for PCs level 1 to 10. Explore the ancient woods & their mysteries!

[ATTACH=CONFIG]2981[/ATTACH]

Forests in fantasy roleplaying games are dark places, full of secrets. With this project, we bring the Old Margreve to the 5th Edition of the world's most popular RPG. The Margreve is an ancient, enchanted forest that defends itself from those who come to cut its timber, poach its creatures, or steal its magic. Within its borders the Old Ways are strong, the word of the druids carries great weight, and griffons, dragons, and stranger creatures nest and hunt, undisturbed by humans, dwarves, or other lordlings.  

The Margreve Kickstarter offers three main elements:

1) the Tales of the Old Margreve adventure campaign hardcover for the GM, with adventures from levels 1 to 10

2) a Margreve Player's Guide softcover book of new player options, including new races, druid and ranger subclasses and tools, backgrounds, and forest-themed spells.

3) (if unlocked) a set of thick cardboard standups, the Margreve Pawns, which are similar to those created for Tome of Beasts and the Creature Codex.

New Tabletop RPG 'Vindeon' by Games/Fantasy Writer Tom Ahlqvist (Sweden) is now Live on Kickstarter
Stockholm 2018-11-25

Vindeon is a brand-new fantasy role-playing game focusing heavily on immersive acting and fast action rules, enabling players to get the most out of their game sessions. It is now live on the crowd funding site kickstarter.

The complete project includes the ~275 pages core rulebook 'Vindeon', a 64 pages introductory adventure 'The Maid of Flowerdale' and five stretch goals, each adding new rules or illustrations to either of the books as funding progresses. Play one of three races and their respective nine cultures, choose one of over sixty unique, culture-bound professions or go rogue and create a profession of your own, as you are about to embark on a journey of unknown adventure, of love or anguish, action or mystery. The world of Vindeon holds many untold stories, and they are created as you and your companions progress, solving riddles, exploring the forgotten reaches of the world or forging your path through those that would dare oppose you.
"After two years of hard work in creating, testing and prepping for release, I can safely say that our game is ready to be devoured by fans of the old school tabletop rpg genre" says project lead Tom Ahlqvist, creative mind behind the Vindeon world and its accompanying rpg rules. "I think our special take on fast action rules and dice-throwing will excite a lot of players, and if we've managed to create just as interesting lore, stories and adventures, I believe Vindeon has all the power it needs to become a fondly thought-of addition to any rpg-enthusiast's book-shelf."

You can access the kickstarter project page here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects...t&term=Vindeon

The Vindeon Complete RPG is an independently developed project by lead writer Tom Oden Ahlqvist and his team of two freelancer graphic designers and concept artists based in Stockholm. The hardcopies of the books are limited to ship only within Sweden, but international backers will be able to receive the complete PDF-versions of both core rulebook and adventure book.

Lost Hall of Tyr (2nd Edition) Now on Kickstarter! (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2101297466/lost-hall-of-tyr-2nd-edition-maps-and-print-run)

[ATTACH=CONFIG]3088[/ATTACH]

Lost Hall of Tyr (2nd Edition) (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2101297466/lost-hall-of-tyr-2nd-edition-maps-and-print-run) is a mini-setting and adventure for the Dragon Heresy Roleplaying Game. Dragon Heresy is based on the Fifth Edition SRD engine with some setting and feel adjustments, under the OGL. The adventure can be run and played using 5e with little to no modification.

Lost Hall of Tyr (2nd Edition) contains



Lost Hall of Tyr (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2101297466/lost-hall-of-tyr-2nd-edition-maps-and-print-run) has been expanded to 112 pages (from 64), in full color. The Kickstarter is to enhance the quality of the original combat/location maps, and fund a high-quality print run. Experience shows the adventure locations and challenges are very portable to other campaigns.

The campaign funded on the second day, and the campaign ends on December 23. The full hardcover stretch goal is definitely within reach.

Why 2nd Edition?

When I first published Lost Hall of Tyr, it wasn't what I wanted it to be. Not enough art, the maps weren't anything special, and the convention-style romp (2-4 hour one-shot) didn't explore the awesome viking-inspired setting that I had set the adventure within.

Thanks to the publication of the Dragon Heresy Introductory Set and the expansion of the 1st edition supplement into the much larger Hall of Judgment version for the Dungeon Fantasy RPG, I had the art, the contacts, and the content to make Lost Hall of Tyr what it should have been all along.

If I can ask for a clarification, the "beta access" is getting the books during the development process, correct? Can you tell me what percentage of the books are written and when this access will be granted? I'm in for 50 Euros, but'll bump up to 60 if it's worth early access.

The Player's Handbook is 70% done for texting, and 30% done for layout. The Gamemaster's Guide is in progress right now, I'd guesstimate we're 30% done there. Most core mechanics are pretty much locked down at this point - based on the final feedback of our beta testers, of course.

Please don't tar and feather me if we don't make it, but we should be able to send out the first beta PDFs early summer.

Unless we smash through a lot more content-based stretch goals, which may slow the whole thing down.

Plus you can get minis of the creatures and all backers get a commercial license for the artwork that we commission!

The first issue is almost completely ready to go, but it needs artwork. Come on in and see what we can make together!

Quoting this to bring attention to the fact that the Kickstarter is coming to a close. Sure, it might be a "fantasy heartbreaker", but it's fucking ADOM which is the best roguelike around with a pretty cool background. Lots of evil eldritch chaos encroaching on civilization, threatening to destroy reality. A new video was posted of the test prints and the books are *nice*. Even if you never play it, totally worth reading for inspiration. Like, seriously, back this.

"Other Magic" takes the spells, rituals, and practices of real world traditional magic system and translates them into rpg-compatible formats. The first issue includes information on American hoodoo, Pennsylvania Dutch braucheri/powowwing, and more.

The spells are written in general OSR format, but can easily be converted to other systems.

Just launched my first kickstarter for a sci-fi rpg I've been creating and playing for almost 30 years. Check it out if you are after something a little different. It's a gritty, low fantasy, tactical, team-based table-top RPG set on an alien world where you get to be the monster!

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1165384999/interstellar-mercenary-the-role-playing-game?ref=project_build




This game was made with little to no RPG experience so has taken some very unique directions. Happy to share early draft chapters for review and feedback too!

The I.S.M. Core Rule Book, a completely stand alone rules and world book with everything you need to play I.S.M. Almost 500 art filled pages containing:

-Unique alien world- creatures, cities, towns, empires, flora, history, religions
-Custom armor system - each piece has a realistic impact on combat
-Unlimited skill system
-Unrestricted character generation
-12 pre-made mercenaries ready to play
-20 original alien species (no elves or goblins here) each with unique character sheets
-Realistic and intuitive combat system - one dice roll per act or effect
-100s of weapons that have multiple attacks
-Unarmed brawling, grappling and alien martial arts combat with 60+ moves
-I.S.M. Hit Endurance provides realistic damage and wound effects
-I.S.M. Cerebral Efflux - unlimited telepathy and telekinesis magic substitute
-Unlimited advancement, realistic training and experience generation
-Carefully balanced world with both medieval and advanced alien technology
-Almost 500 beautifully laid out, and tabbed for easy referencing, pages detailing a complete world and rules

Enjoy

In addition to the Boxed Set AND the awesome book of Monsters, there's also third-party support being prepared by Gaming Ballistic.

The Citadel at Nordvorn (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/gamingballistic/the-citadel-at-norvorn) is on Kickstarter simultaneous with the Dungeon Fantasy RPG. It is currently 78% funded, and saw a surge of support over the last two days. With the Boxed Set, which includes "I Smell a Rat," Hall of Judgment, and now Citadel at Nordvorn, there's enough material to play for a long time, all ready to go. When you get through with those, the included-in-the-box Dungeon Fantasy: Monsters and Dungeon Fantasy Monsters 2 now on Kickstarter give self-directed play.

[ATTACH=CONFIG]3225[/ATTACH]

In The Citadel at Nordvorn (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/gamingballistic/the-citadel-at-norvorn), you will find many adventures, plus more trouble the players will doubtless create on their own. The area is so teeming with strife and peril that their characters will have the opportunity to stand at the center of many crises.

The Citadel at Nordvorn (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/gamingballistic/the-citadel-at-norvorn) is a setting for the Dungeon Fantasy RPG. It consists of three major settlements, many small villages, at least one ruin, and two primary sources of conflict: The Hunted Lands to the northwest of The Palisade, and the Endalaus Forest, to the north and east of Audreyn's Wall.

Return to Norðlond, a Viking-flavored world with its own history, culture, and expectations. Visit as an outsider, or fresh from a victory rediscovering the Hall of Judgment.

[ATTACH=CONFIG]3226[/ATTACH]

It is intended for starting Dungeon Fantasy RPG characters of 250 points. They will be major players, and the fulcrum around which the future of Norðlond turns. While it is set in the same world as Hall of Judgment, it is not sequel. It is a setting, filled with adventuring possibilities, and easily tuned up or down in power level as the GM desired to suit any fantasy campaign!

Good luck, and may the Fates have a bold destiny in store for you!

Hall of Judgment: Pics and Reviews

Still on the fence? Read these two reviews: one by Octopus Carnival (https://bira.github.io/octopus-carnival/2018/08/24/hall-of-judgment-review.html), the other by the Blind Mapmaker (https://blindmapmaker.wordpress.com/2018/10/07/bite-sized-review-hall-of-judgment-powered-by-dfrpg/), with my commentary on the review (which I thought positive and fair) on my blog here.

if you missed the Kickstarter for Hall of Judgment, and want to string the two books together into a campaign, a new reward level has been added! Viking Raider ($65), which gets you PDFs and Print copies of both books. These are printed on heavy paper stock (Hall was 93# paper, and Citadel will be from 90-100# as well), and goes through two print runs in order to help with European shipping.

[ATTACH=CONFIG]3227[/ATTACH]

Euro-Friendly?

Yes. The Citadel at Nordvorn (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/gamingballistic/the-citadel-at-norvorn) will be printed as well as delivered in PDF. Short-run digital printing takes us threough the first stage. Two printers, one in the UK or EU, and one in the USA, will take on the printing of the book.

Why two printers? Because shipping from the USA is utterly ridiculous, and the best way I can find to get books to customers who are outside the USA - and for Hall of Judgment, that was a full third of the physical books! - is to print the books in the UK/Europe and then ship them via Royal Mail.

The US is easy: I'll print 'em here and ship them via USPS Media Mail.

BEINGS from BEYOND: Demons, Devils and Angels for 5th Edition

Beyond the veil that lies between worlds, are beings of unimaginable power. Some are creatures of blazing beauty and transcendent revelation. Others are stains upon the fabric of reality itself, unspeakable entities before whom eons are instants, and whose dark designs span the universe.

THE BOOK

BEINGS from BEYOND is your guide to these entities, known to mortals as Angels, Demons and Devils. Part bestiary, part setting supplement and part adventure generator; the full book will be at least 120 pages long, in a starkly beautiful black-and-white style. Within its pages are scores of random tables for generating everything from Demonic cults to extra-dimensional paradises, re-imagined mechanics ranging from summoning to madness, and plenty of evocative lore to help you involve these awe-inspiring creatures in your tabletop role-playing adventures. Statistics are included for 5th edition, but the book is compatible with any fantasy role-playing system.

THE CAMPAIGN

If the prospect of dreams and nightmares from other dimensions interests you, make sure to check out the Kickstarter campaign (http://kck.st/2XANVnQ). If you wish to glimpse into the BEYOND, and see what horrors and wonders lie in store for you there, sample pages from the book itself can be found here for Demons (https://ibb.co/3rdNNpM), Devils (https://ibb.co/Yhb4sCr), Angels of Chaos (https://ibb.co/J7TF8qD) and Angels of Order (https://ibb.co/zbfVYxL).

Divine Madness Press is proud to announce the Kickstarter campaign for the 2nd Edition of Fight! The Fighting Game RPG!
Originally released in 2010, Fight! allows you to bring the characters and stories from traditional fighting video games to the tabletop.  Create characters with their own Special Move lists – using a comprehensive effects-based design system – and send them on combat-filled adventures across distinctive campaign settings at any scale.  Engage in battles utilizing the core concepts of fighting games such as positioning, Combos, Hit Stun, Super Moves, and counter attacks.  Have adventures fighting crime on the mean streets of your city, taking on worldwide criminal syndicates, or defending the universe from extradimensional incursions!

Fight! 2nd Edition was written by Christopher Peter and Alejo Marello and incorporates nine years of reflection and development to produce a rule set that is fully compatible with 1st edition material with only minor tweaking, yet also adds greater clarity, consistency, and flexibility across the rules.  Special attention was paid to make the game especially easier to use with multiple fighters in the same battle.  The core rule book contains everything you need to create an endless variety of Fighters battling across endless possibilities of campaign settings, complete with guidelines for getting the right feel for the genre and tips for GMs on how to set up, structure, and run campaigns that feel like fighting game stories.

In 1990, Game Designers Workshop first brought Dark Conspiracy to life. It was a robust and acclaimed roleplaying game series, far ahead of its time with canny predictions about the shape of things to come.

In 2019, Clockwork Publishing brings it back. For the first time in more than 20 years, Dark Conspiracy will be available in print in a deluxe new version of the acclaimed roleplaying game, with an updated system and setting, featuring all-new art and content.

The relaunch will begin with the release of the Dark Conspiracy quickstart adventure, the Dark Conspiracy core rulebook, accompanied by the Dark Conspiracy Gamemaster Screen and Resource, and more. Future supplements will include sourcebooks detailing gear, psychic powers, minions, and will further explore the world of Dark Conspiracy.

Vintage Space brings Disco-Era optimistic sci-fi back to the tabletop. This game combines the sensibilities of both the narrative and OSR RPG scenes into a game that's easy to learn, simple to run and fun to play.

This game craws inspiration from classic shows and movies from the late 60's to the early 80's. When you play Vintage Space you and your friends escape to a future where mankind's potential is unbound. There's danger along the way, but if you're heroic enough to face it, you can use your courage, intellect, and capability as a Star Corps officer to save the day.

Frog God Games just launched a dual stat adventure for 5e and S&W:

Sea King's Malice (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/froggodgames/sea-kings-malice-a-5e-adventure-in-the-deadly-dept)

Quote
In the murky depths sits a brooding menace, ancient, indescribably evil, and ravenously hungry. Perched on his massive throne, the Sea King dreams of his massive jaws bathing in runnels of fresh land-dweller blood. He dreams of the ecstasy of rending air-breather flesh. His hate-filled dreams suffuse him with visions of presiding over a glorious and bloody feast where his despised enemies, those both above and below the waves, drown in a tide of their own blood, torn apart by his fierce warriors. In this sprawling adventure the characters will come face to face with this terrible menace.

Sea King's Malice is a full color and lavishly illustrated 5e adventure for the world's most popular role-playing game that takes characters on a sweeping adventure across the ocean, to previously uncharted lands, and finally down under the waves to the very depths of the sea. It is also available for the 0E Swords & Wizardry system for those preferring old-school rulesets.

Title: KICKSTARTER Adventures in Austerion
Post by: De Architecturart on June 05, 2019, 02:56:50 PM
Adventures in Austerion (AiA) is a fantasy role-playing game (RPG). Mainly designed to explore unfriendly locations in the continent of Austerion, it may be played in fast-paced sessions of 2 or 3 hours. To do so, it relies on a mix of classical RPG rules and board game mechanisms (such as tiles, cards and tokens…). If this approach will help new players to discover RPGs in a comforting and amusing way, it will fulfill the grognards as well, with additional possibilities offered by a set of optional rules that convey an old-school dungeon-crawling feeling.
come and discover the game on KICKSTARTER*!

The legendary City of Vermilion: birthplace of a thousand legends, hiding place of a thousand secrets--this den of iniquity will form the centerpiece for a Sword & Sorcery campaign in the manner of Fafhrd & the Grey Mouser! Your adventures will take you from its steep, plastered rooftops to its decrepit, ancient sewers, to the silken parlors of merchant princes to the cramped and labyrinthine alleyways of the thieves quarter or even to the depths of the Maelstrom! The adventure also boasts a massive wilderness area of the island, caves, underwater ruins and places to explore!

The adventure uses OSRIC rules, is 165+ pages and for levels 4-8. Kickstarter is now LIVE! Come check it out, watch the video, and throw in a comment!

At 10:30 central time on Sept 10, the latest Kickstarter for Gaming Ballistic launched: Nordlond Sagas for the Dungeon Fantasy RPG. (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/gamingballistic/nordlond-sagas-for-the-dungeon-fantasy-rpg)

It hopes to fund three products, all set in the Norðlond setting and supporting the Dungeon Fantasy RPG with more full-color, 8x10 books.

The Dragons of Rosgarth
48 or 64 pages
This setting expansion and adventure scenario details the towns of Midgard and Jarngarðr, and provides a looming threat worthy of a party of seasoned delvers. Targeted at four to six delvers of 300 points or more. Written by Kyle Norton (Dungeons on Automatic).
[ATTACH=CONFIG]3821[/ATTACH]

Forest's End
64 or 80 pages
The King proclaimed that lands and titles were newly available for those bold enough to hold them. One thegn, more than bold enough to take up the King's challenge, built a fortified settlement near where the forest meets the sea: Skógarenda . . . Forest's End. The thegn is ready to claim his rightful status as lord and jarl. A great feast is planned. What could go wrong?

Forest's End features several threats and three actual dungeons to delve for the Dungeon Fantasy RPG! Written by Merlin Avery.

[ATTACH=CONFIG]3822[/ATTACH]

Norðlondr Fólk
16 pages
Sixteen playable racial templates to supplement those from Dungeon Fantasy Adventurers, including Norðlond-specific versions of elves and dwarves. Also dragon-blooded, children of humans and demons, and other hybrids, such as raven-folk and those who are brothers and sisters to bear and boar. Written by Kevin Smyth.
[ATTACH=CONFIG]3823[/ATTACH]


As with all small-publisher efforts, the best thing you can do to help is (a) first back the campaign, and then (b) talk about it somewhere else. Share the link, say why you're excited to be a part of the campaign, a comment on facebook, anything. It's amazing how that sort of network effect can drive a campaign.

Let's see if we can break the old DFRPG record for Gaming Ballistic of 600 backers, and the all-time record for me of 610 from The Fantasy Trip.

There are 24 hours left in the Bones Kickstarter.  

One thing that's kinda cool about this is that if you see something you like but you're cash shy at the moment, is you can pledge a smaller amount (it was $1, now I think the minimum is $40) and you can add anything that was offered in the Kickstarter at the Kickstarter cost.  

So if you want a $22 add-on, you can pay for it anytime in the next 12 months or so.

In the old Deadlands, that was always the least developed part. It, ironically, never felt like it went anywhere. If they add a lot of material, it might be worthwhile. If they just "Savage" what came before, I'm way less interested.

Kickstarter to expand the Base rules of All Us Gamers RPG (https://allusgamersrpg.com/).

The base rules allow players to declare aptitudes for their characters to feed into the dice engine. The Kickstart project, On Aptitude (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/dannystevens/all-us-gamers-core-on-aptitude) expands on the rules to give characters attributes and skill spheres and to improve their aptitude over time. The Book of Struggles will be the following project and provides rules for conflicts between characters. There are three settings proposed for after that, described at the kickstarter. Backers get to vote for which setting is produced first.

Casting the Runes is the Gumshoe game of occult investigation in the Edwardian era, and based on the stories of Montague Rhodes James, an eminent medievalist scholar and connoisseur of the strange and macabre. He was a major influence on H. P. Lovecraft and many others, and helped form the modern ghost story.

the Kickstarter for Casting the Runes is into its final 3 days. We've exceeded our funding, secured a brilliant foreword by British Horror Legend Ramsey Campbell, and been able to create an unexpected add-on in the shape of an original scenario, set in M. R. James home village by Christian Jenner Romer.

Now's your chance to join with over 380 others to help push this Kickstarter as far as we can. The Runes have been Cast. The parchments prepared. Spells are afoot. Can you feel it?

It's in the trees.

It's coming.

Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/owlcatgames/pathfinder-wrath-of-the-righteous)

A new isometric single-player RPG set in the Pathfinder universe – an indirect sequel to Pathfinder: Kingmaker.

As you may know, we at Owlcat Games have spent countless hours playing the Pathfinder tabletop RPG. We enjoyed it so much that we decided to bring this experience to the videogame format by creating a classic isometric party-based computer RPG called Pathfinder: Kingmaker. The phenomenal love and support shown for Kingmaker have inspired us to tell another story from the Age of Lost Omens. Today we are thrilled to introduce the adventure we are so passionate and excited about – Wrath of the Righteous!

Embark on a journey to a realm overrun by demons and rise to power by choosing one of six available Mythic Paths. Master their abilities and change the world around you as an Angel, a Lich, a Trickster, an Aeon, a Demon, or an Azata. Each Mythic Path leads to unique skills and appearance, and greatly impacts the game's story.

Challenge the mighty Demon Lords and close the portal to the demonic plane of existence known as the Abyss.

Enjoy the flexibility, richness, and depth of the Pathfinder first edition ruleset. Create any character imaginable by choosing one of ten races, picking a particular class out of the 21 available, each with five archetypes for even greater customization. Gain access to more than a thousand spells, feats, and abilities, and select those that suit your playstyle. Take control of your party formation, help set up a camp, and find a way to victory by combining the strengths of your companions.

Lead the armies of the Fifth Crusade to victory in a new strategic layer of gameplay. In addition to the classic CRPG experience, step into the role of the Commander, gather troops, reinforce your stronghold, and send your armies to battle the demonic invasion across the map of the region. Send your crusaders to explore ancient ruins and recover powerful artifacts.

Experience a non-linear story about the cost of tremendous power that adventurers often seek, with tales of corruption caused by the demonic influence and redemption for those who have stepped on the wrong path.

Meet a new diverse cast of characters, including ten companions to recruit to your party and featuring multiple romance options to choose from.

Take control of five new classes (Arcanist, Bloodrager, Shaman, Oracle, and Witch) and meet a new race–the half-undead dhampir–in addition to the previous roster from Pathfinder: Kingmaker. The number of archetypes per class has increased to five as well.

Dive into the game even if you're not familiar with the intricacies of the Pathfinder ruleset. Use an enhanced tutorial for newcomers to help you with character creation and get up to speed with the rules of the system.

Explore the world with updated visuals and a 360-degree rotating camera added for better playability and immersion.

But not always.

[ATTACH=CONFIG]4136[/ATTACH]

Other Magic #2: Monsters of the Americas
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1233391562/other-magic-2-monsters-of-the-americas-zine

From the description:

The first edition of Other Magic - https://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/277801/Other-Magic -  (ZineQuest 2019) focused on real world folk magic traditions, with an emphasis on those of the United States and Mexico.  Other Magic #2: Monsters of the Americas - https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1233391562/other-magic-2-monsters-of-the-americas-zine -  is designed to complement the first issue by highlighting the monsters of the broader Americas where those folk magic traditions exist.  These monsters come from the myths and legends of various regions within the United States, Central America, South America, and the Caribbean.  They are bizarre, obscure, and distinctly different from the ones found in most roleplaying games.

Since the goal is to present the monsters as they appear within folktales and myths, Other Magic #2: Monsters of the Americas focuses on their traditional behaviors, abilities, strengths, and weaknesses, without modification. As with the first issue of Other Magic, the emphasis is on magic and the supernatural as they are understood by regular people in the real world. Some of the monsters can be defeated or killed, while others can only be driven away or avoided. Most of them are not "I slay it with my sword" or "I shoot it with my gun" types of adversaries, because that is not how they are conceptualized in the real world stories.

I have some friends wrapping up a Kickstarter that is also part of this "ZineQuest 2" event: A Visitor's Guide to the Rainy City
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/the-abzu/a-visitors-guide-to-the-rainy-city

From the intro description:
"It's the end of the world. It always rains. Rain beats against the walls. It seeps through the shutters. It pours off the mossy backs of the gargoyles. It turns streets into streams and rivers.
Teetering, damp towers lean against rotting townhouses thrown together in the ruins of a once gleaming city. Servants dash through storms on petty errands. Fireplaces sputter weakly, and spellbooks filled with moldy spells rot in spite of the protections lavished on them for their precious contents."

It's a setting complete with maps, details of the gangs, guilds, neighborhoods and select personalities of the city. The setting has been shaped through play in a variety of systems, including BECMI D&D, The Fantasy Trip, Warhammer, D&D 5E, and Castle Falkenstein. It can be backed at either the PDF level, or the physical level, which now includes an 11x17 map in addition to the zine. The author of the setting has also written a number of blog posts regarding how the setting might be used in a variety of different games (which can be found in the updates on the Kickstarter as well). They even managed to get a mention on Steve Jackson's "Daily Illuminator" based on the Fantasy Trip inspirations that shaped the setting.

Anyways, the Kickstarter has about 30 hours remaining as I type this. Check it out if it sounds like it might be your jam.

Title: More Perilous Journeys: Five New Adventures for The Fantasy Trip
Post by: DouglasCole on May 19, 2020, 12:22:27 PM
The More Perilous Journeys campaign, producing five new old-school adventures for TFT, is now live!

[ATTACH=CONFIG]4476[/ATTACH]


What books?

The campaign features five new adventures. Three expect you to run with a GM at the helm; the other two are solo adventures.

Roc of Sages (Christopher R. Rice and J. Edward Tremlett). Beset by Collectors - assassins from the Indhyna League - the party must journey to the Isle of Greater Zosi to collect items for the semi-corporeal Jok Sevantes. Of course, there are several dangerous stops along the way. Roc of Sages is designed for 4-6 characters of 34-36 points.

Catacombs of Living Death (Christopher R. Rice and J. Edward Tremlett). Following the events of Roc of Sages, Jok Sevantes again calls the party to aid him. They must venture forth through a plague-stricken land, and enter the Catacombs of Eulogia to recover the Helm of Baat. Simple enough . . . but things are not always as they appear. Catacombs of Living Death is designed for 4-6 characters of 36-38 points.

The Sunken Library (Christopher R. Rice and J. Edward Tremlett). Set immediately following Catacombs, the players flee the plague-ridden landscape beset by numerous foes. Sevantes' plans reach their climax as his partners must bring all of the previously found artifacts beneath the depths of a lake in Meloria. There, a lost tome sits in the sunken Great Library of Meloria, and matters become treacherously clear. The Sunken Library is designed for 4-6 characters of 36-38 points.

Dragon Hunt! (David Pulver). Baron Gwalathar's armies marched off to war. Without its defenders, the dragons of the wild sensed weakness, ravaging the realm. The young Baroness Tanith Gwalathar calls for heroes: It's time for a dragon hunt! This is a solo/programmed adventure for one 37-39 point character or two 35-36 point characters. It can optionally also be run with a GM.

Dark Lord's Doom (David Pulver). Another Dark Lord is on the march, threatening to bring death and destruction to all who oppose, and maybe a few who don't. This solo/programmed adventure features a squad of soldiers fighting in an all-out war to defeat the evil Lord Saethor and his allies before it's too late. Will the Dark Lord's doom fall upon the party, or on the villain himself? Dark Lord's Doom is designed for 4 characters of 33-36 points each.

[ATTACH=CONFIG]4477[/ATTACH] (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/lonewolffists/tian-shang-lone-wolf-fists?ref=creator_nav)

Hello True Believers!

Joel Clark of the Five Emperors here. After many, many long years of design I'm proud to announce that the kickstarter campaign for our post-apocalyptic, super-powered martial-arts TTRRPG Lone Wolf Fists has begun!

What it is

Lone Wolf Fists is inspired thematically by pulpy 90's anime; it's "appendix N" includes such gory gems as Fist of the North Star, Demon City Shinjuku, Ninja Scroll, Akira, and Vampire Hunter D (both the original movie and sequel). Characters take on the role of wandering martial arts heroes, united by a shared destiny to shape their post-apocalyptic world into something new.

It's star attraction is it's high-octane combat! Players roll a pool of d10s and create matches; each match can be used as an attack, a defense, or a skill. Every character has an array of kung-fu super moves that they can unleash, from rock-shattering punches to atomic firebreath to metal-crushing psychic force. Characters are powerful, survivable, competent, and of course incredibly cool.

Mechanically it's designed to be light but deep, easy to learn, teach and run. It's combat system is meant to be robust, challenging, and reward creative strategy, while being forgiving enough to allow for both rookies and surviving when your players inevitably bite off more than they can chew (in true heroic fashion!).

There was a TON of thought put into structuring and pacing the game, so it's easy to run, easy to prep for, and easy to play, without sacrificing it's satisfying mechanical depth!

It's a spiritual successor to the Legends of the Wulin RPG, based on the design work of Erik Ten Broeke, Jerry Skold and David Ramirez. It's inspired both by those mechanics and by several other games, notably Marvel FASERIP, Marvel Heroic, and older versions of D&D.

What you can get

Because this is our very first kickstarter, we're keeping our project focused on creating the game itself. Backers can get a PDF of the game, or order a Hardback from our planned print run. Both domestic (US) and international orders are accommodated!

In addition, we're offering a limited number of tiers for those super-fans who want to leave their mark on the game! These rewards include character portraits to appear in game art, the ability to co-design a martial arts style, or even an entire minor clan of post-apocalyptic warriors!

Who we are

The Five Emperors are myself (Joel Clark), David Ramirez, Victor Andrade and Joerg Boers. We're not affiliated with the creators of Legends of the Wulin, aside from of course David being on the team. We have sought both the approval and advice of game designers Arik Ten Broeke and Jerry Skold, who have both made contributions to the game.
We're deeply committed to bringing our vision for the world's premier post-apocalyptic, kung-fu RPG to life!

Thanks very much for reading! If you'd like to get involved, go ahead and click the link on that rad chunk of art up there, OR right here in these very words!  (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/lonewolffists/tian-shang-lone-wolf-fists)

Or, if you want a sample of the Tian Shang engine that powers this game, head on over to Drivethrurpg.com and get a FREE pdf of All Above Heaven: Act 1!  (https://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/273258/Tian-Shang-All-Above-Heaven-Act-1)Lone Wolf Fists is the complete version, but this sample should give you an idea of what you're in for!
Title: FATUM Character background gnerator for DnD5 and Fantasy RPGs
Post by: Jhonasquinn on May 27, 2020, 02:17:39 AM
WE ARE LIVE!! Currently 63% and more than 540 Backers!!

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/fatumcards/fatum-character-creator-deck/
So, what is FATUM?
(https://i.ibb.co/WtvTN5n/Fatum-box-mockup.jpg) (https://ibb.co/2N3b0hq)
(https://i.ibb.co/MGZXHyN/cards.jpg) (https://ibb.co/P9FSysC)

FATUM is a powerful yet easy tool designed to create full-flegded stories for your fantasy RPG characters. Although built with fantastic/ epic roleplaying game systems in mind, it's been developed to fuel other artistic creations, whether you are a writer, a screenwriter or an illustrator.

FATUM is beautifully illustrated with exclusive artwork and carefully designed to delight game masters and players alike!

Enjoy creating new characters and their own unique stories. In no time you'll have a full-developed chronicle for your PC (or NPC!)

FATUM deck allows you to:

-Generate characters and their linked stories in a short time.
-Produce a quick yet full story for an NPC (Non Player Character) when suddendly required on the table.
-Build a character story on the fly for a game in course.
-In case of a story partially created, finish it later quickly and randomly.

(https://i.ibb.co/3vCbKv4/card-back.jpg) (https://ibb.co/ypQC2pd)

Creating the story for your character is fast and easy following playmat positions and instructions. First you divide the deck into five different piles according to categories. Then, except for Class category pile, shuffle every pile and select randomly a stack of them. Tap the whole stack 180º and put them back in the pile. Then shuffle again. Place the piles face down outside the playmat and follow the instructions in the box. Please notice all categories except Class have illustrations at the top and at the bottom: every illustration and its position in the playmat will result in a specific interpretation. This two-side card mechanics allow for countless random generation of stories!

Some cards have mechanics of their own, for example, if you reveal the card "Ally", that card will ask "Who?", and then you must draw a card from a special pile created mixing Class, Backgrounds and Bounds piles. Another example is "Death" card who asks three different questions: "Who?", "Murder?" and "Where?".

Here you can see an example of character creation, drawing cards from the piles and placing them in the playmat:

MoldyCave Virtual Game Table: FREE Online Tabletop

MoldyCave is THE easy-to-learn, free-to-use virtual game table. This Virtual Table Top (VTT) is browser-based and requires no installation. MoldyCave has tools for maps, dice, character sheets, grids, drawing, fog of war, spells/abilities, notes, and more. MoldyCave is an unparalleled system that allows you to play tabletop RPGs with a group remotely on PC, Apple, and mobile devices, with applications for in-person gaming as well!



THE Virtual Tabletop. Moldycave.


MoldyCave absolutely will be free once it is released. And it won't have any "premium" version for pay. All the tools for gaming will be free.

It's on Kickstarter right now, but I'm not pushing for backers. I just want you to check it out, and maybe keep an eye out for when we release it. I think we're already superior in many ways to roll20 and Fantasy Grounds, among others. MoldyCave started because of a move across the country away from my friends and our efforts to find ways to game at a distance.

My hope is that this will be really useful to people who are bored during quarantining and self-isolation, those who have difficulty getting to games in person, and anyone else who finds it useful. My parents worked in jobs that served those who have disabilities, and I worked for a decade in the education system to do similar. I know MoldyCave can become a resource for people with disabilities. I'd love to get feedback and am not asking for support financially (you can if you like), but please try to find people who might benefit and share with them.

I can't post video yet, but we've got our intro video on YouTube (our channel is Tranquility Games) and a kickstarter page under the title MoldyCave (no space).

Please check MoldyCave out. Thanks!

My hope is that this will be really useful to people who are bored during quarantining and self-isolation, those who have difficulty getting to games in person, and anyone else who finds it useful. My parents worked in jobs that served those who have disabilities, and I worked to do that in the education field for a decade myself. I know MoldyCave can be a resource for people with disabilities. I'd love to get feedback and am not asking for support financially (you can if you like), but please try to find people who might benefit and share with them.

I can't post video yet, but we've got our intro video on YouTube (our channel is Tranquility Games) and a kickstarter page under the title MoldyCave (no space).

Please check MoldyCave out. Thanks!

Title: [Kickstarter] RPG Adventure Candles - Experience Your Games in Another Sense
Post by: Happy Piranha on June 03, 2020, 12:34:29 PM
RPG Adventure Candles



Hi, we're Happy Piranha, a small family run business in Cornwall, UK and we're Kickstarting a new range of scented candles, designed for Dungeon Masters and RPG enthusiasts. We want to create a range of candles, inspired by game locations, with scents to stimulate your imagination, deepen your immersion and enhance the narrative.

We're also designing three downloadable maps, based on locations featured on each of the three candle's artwork - perfect for using alongside your candle as inspiration for starting a new adventure, or as an encounter in an existing storyline.

You can find our project here (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/happypiranha/rpg-adventure-gaming-candles)

[ATTACH=CONFIG]4533[/ATTACH]

Why?

Memories are linked to your sense of smell, as is your imagination. We want to bring that sense into play, adding another level of experience and enjoyment to your game.

Your morning coffee or visit to the bakery would not be half as enjoyable without the smell connected with them. The warmth of spring and the aroma of freshly cut grass – the excitement of opening that new DM guidebook and the whiff of pristine print.

The sign of a good game, aside from delving into dungeons and fighting dragons, is the  shared experiences created by the atmosphere you evoke. So why miss out on the full experience – our candles will make a great addition to your storytelling arsenal

The Designs

1. The Tavern: Warm, cosy aroma of apple cider, honey-laced mead and log fires.
Many a great adventure is born at some auspicious inn. Tucked away under the rafters, a band of rag-tag heroes huddle together in the warmth of the log fire, discussing their aspirations for the road ahead whilst enjoying a tankard or two of mead.
[ATTACH=CONFIG]4534[/ATTACH]

2. Emerald Shores: A fresh sea breeze with a trace of coconut from coastal gorse and base notes of salty driftwood.
 Who knows where the wind may take you? Into valuable encounters with those sharing the trade winds or smugglers and privateers with a more sinister intent. There's a profit to be made on the high seas but the risks are equally as high.
[ATTACH=CONFIG]4535[/ATTACH]

3. Dark Forest: Freshly trodden undergrowth, sandalwood and bluebells with a hint of foreboding.
Those who venture deep into the dark woods rarely return to tell the tale. Among the maze of trees, some say you can see the faces of lost souls in the twisted bark. If you are to get through, you will need to enlist all of your senses.
[ATTACH=CONFIG]4536[/ATTACH]

Who are we?
We're Sam and Josh, a twin project (literally) tucked away on the blustery Cornish coast. Josh gets on with it and I do the talking - it's always been this way and it's worked out just fine so far. We look similar on the outside, but aren't that similar on the inside, though we do share a fondness for the same things: fantasy, sci-fi, adventure, books and gaming are all part of what makes us Happy Piranhas.

Our projects are part of a passion. They wind their way from conversations about the things we enjoy, to the ideas they inspire, to Josh's pen and paper and then onto his computer. If we're lucky, some make it into the homes of those who share our sentiments.

Finally, a role playing tabletop rpg game created by a Christian for Christians!

Land of the Christians (LOTC) role-playing game is a storytelling game set in a christian world. The game can take place in any period of history in our world, in any world, if set in fantasy or science fiction world, so long as the character involved is a christian. The character can also be a non christian if the game is set before the new testament period.

This is a game that relies mainly on your imagination to play, although in some cases, the use of a die is needed. It is a game of fighting demons and monsters, converting non-Christians to become Christians, healing an injured team mate in a journey and/or discovering treasure chests. In other words, there is no limit to what the game can be except the limit of your imagination.

We're in the final 48 hours for the Wanderer Gamebook+ System. The campaign has been chugging along, and we're now at nearly 6x our original funding goal! The campaign ends on Sunday, the 12th of July.

Come see what all the fuss is about and join the hundreds of other backers who are ready to take down giants, avenge the blood of friends and bring hope back into the world. This project is both a traditional gamebook, in the style of Lone Wolf and Fighting Fantasy, and a solo RPG. Once you finish the included adventure you can make your own on the fly. Record your session, turn it into a gamebook and collab with friends for even more fun.

This game is already going to have supplements to makeit compatible with both Troika and Mothership. If we manage to hit 6K by the end of the campaign we're going to produce a compatibility supplement for OSR games, such as Black Hack.

The Palace of Unquiet Repose Kickstarter is now LIVE! https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/mercilessmerchants/the-palace-of-unquiet-repose (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/mercilessmerchants/the-palace-of-unquiet-repose)

For Labyrinth Lord, levels 3-5.
[ATTACH=CONFIG]4756[/ATTACH]
Seamlessly integrating a uniquely horrific atmosphere with brutal location-based adventuring, Palace of Unquiet Repose is a 50-page thrill-ride taking place in the Age of Dusk setting; a brutal Sword & Sorcery epoch, where the Gods have been slain, nameless horrors prowl the wastes baying for blood, and mankind has been reduced to a dim shadow of its former glory. Your players will face horrors never seen before as they explore the subterranean underworld realm of the Palace of Unquiet Repose.

Palace of Unquiet Repose is likely to be the most challenging, intense, harrowing and insane adventure your players have ever experienced. They will descend into the mythical underworld of the Glass Waste and come face to face with an evil that time has forgotten.

Nearly every monster, magic item, trap or effect in Palace is entirely new, never before seen. Are you ready to face such blood-freezing terrors as:

* The beautiful but deadly Nzembarian Concubines
* The enigmatic Azarog, whose limbs are the bodies of Dead Men
* The reality-devouring horror of the Wolf of Final Night
* The all-seeing, angle-annihilating gaze of the Sartoom

These are but a few of the countless sanity-blasting terrors that await those who dare to venture within the Palace of Unquiet Repose!

Title: Light Strikers is here!!!
Post by: Light_Strikers on August 22, 2020, 07:12:40 PM
[ATTACH=CONFIG]4783[/ATTACH]

This is a BRAND NEW game system & campaign setting for you to feast your imagination on!

The system is story & roleplaying driven. However, combat is equally as important. There are 3 levels to the "Clash system" of rules. Level 1 has basic dice rolls with two 6 sided dice, simplified combat, and pregenerated class loadouts. Level 2 expands the combat, and allows for class customization. Level 3 has fully tactical, skirmish combat with other polyhedral dice like the 20 sided dice. Regardless of the level you play with, everything is compatible, and the game is designed to be as long as a story driven campaign as you want.

The Light Strikers game is complete in draft form. There still will be editing, revisions, and additions made until everything is signed off for final delivery. And this will also depend on which stretch goals are unlocked. But at its foundation, the game is ready to go!

After the campaign ends, it won't be too long before everyone starts receiving final products and unlocked stretch goals. Exciting!
And yes- there are plenty of preview/quickstart materials. There is a solo adventure tutorial book, short story, and novelette preview available at launch. Furthermore, there is a "mini-player's handbook" and Adventure Scenario for the Sage Commander (GM) that is available immediately to those who pledge. It provides the complete level 2 "rules-lite system." Bonus- when the campaign hits its initial goal of $3,000, everyone unlocks an additional book that builds a micro-campaign from the adventure scenario. This will be available immediately.

And there is also an $8,000 stretch goal that unlocks portions of the full Light Strikers game & Clash ruleset that will be available immediately after the campaign ends. These will be compiled into special PDF books that allow everyone to start playing as full Light Strikers, with access to more rules, locations, powers, and extra adventure scenarios! Again, this will be available as soon as the campaign ends!

On a mythical island where gods bicker and empires clash, a band of humble townsfolk will rise up to become legends and change the fate of Avallen forever.

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/legendsofavallen/legends-of-avallen (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/legendsofavallen/legends-of-avallen)

Hi everyone, our Celtic-Roman RPG is on Kickstarter, check it out!

Legends of Avallen is an indie tabletop roleplaying game about humble townsfolk questing through an Iron Age world inspired by Celtic mythology and Roman-occupied Britain. Players will seek out lost relics, outwit terrific beasts, and venture into the entrancing Otherworld of the Fae.

As your story builds, your humble character will grow both in person and in power, developing a character arc and following a legendary path, such as the Bard, the Gladiator, the Magister, or one of many more.

Legends of Avallen is quick to pick up, needing just a deck of playing cards. The mechanics push gameplay into your imagination by rewarding teamwork and creativity with extra cards to flip or share with others.

Exclusively for the Kickstarter, we have a deck of awesomely illustrated custom playing cards made for the game as well as an artbook showing off all the concept work. Join the Kickstarter this weekend get a 10% discount that we are running for the UK Games Expo!

Avallen needs legends.
How will you forge yours?

I was a huge fan of this setting back in the day.
