This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.
NOTICE: Some online security services are reporting that information for a limited number of users from this site is for sale on the "dark web." As of right now, there is no direct evidence of this, but change your password just to be safe.

Fragged Empire 2nd Edition

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/wadedyer/fragged-empire-2nd-edition-ttrpg

A sci-fi game with:
  • tactical combat (both ground-based and space-based)
  • atypical setting w/o humans but not so far out there that you can't figure out what to do with it
  • gear and ship creation rules allowing a lot of customization
  • the developer is very approachable and helpful
I played in a campaign using the 1e rules and we had a great time.  Been following the development of the 2e via his youtube posts and really like the changes being made.

The Dungeon Gits
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/feralgamers/dead-heroes/description

Sequel of sorts to Space Gits.  Takes the system and moves it into a fantasy setting.  Characters are part of a mercenary band made up of "criminals, rogue mages, Sellswords and misfits, hunted, hated, and needed because moral neutrality is often needed to win and hold onto power."

Uses a life path character creation system and an OSR style combat system.

The book is 150+ pages.  Black and White art.  Softcover via DrivethruRPG or a KS exclusive hardcover.  Stretch goals include extra character creation options and more setting locations.

The starting adventure is a 3-level dungeon designed by Monkey Blood Designs.

Already funded with 13 days to go.  Estimated delivery date of July 2022.

Savage Worlds Fantasy Companion Kickstarter
« Reply #228 on: April 05, 2022, 07:54:56 PM »
They KS just dropped

https://peginc.com/gamechanger-for-the-new-fantasy-companion-for-savage-worlds-is-live/

I watched the livestream and it's going to be entirely different than the Savage Worlds Pathfinder and Core rules. Basically it's going to be a huge supplement to both. It's setting neutral, and completely Toolkit in design. It will cover magic from 11 different subgenres, including a ton of material that boosts standard D&D/Pathfinder style play, including more utilitarian powers (effectively mining the stuff not covered in Pathfinder), as well as other magical systems and setting conventions. They specifically used Game of Thrones, Harry Potter, Warhammer and a few a others as examples.

There will be expanded rules for Strongholds, PC race creation, rules for deep setting intrigue, magic items, and more.

They also said while it's not made specifically for Savage Pathfinder (or any other setting) it will certainly act as an Advanced Players Guide for Savage Pathfinder as well as greatly fleshing out the Fantasy genre mechanics for the Core rules.

    • The Chronicles of Aeres
We're down to the last 2 days for our sword & sorcery campaign for 5th Edition! Check it and watch the trailer. This is going to be a nearly 200-page supplement with a complete pulp fantasy inspired setting in the first half, with new races, monsters, pre-generated characters and NPCs, and a ton of lore. The second half of the book is a huge adventure with multiple regions, tons of wilderness encounters, dungeons, and other scenarios.

Almost 24 hours left to go until the Kickstarter closes for "Fight to Survive: Role-playing Martial Arts Meets Heart", the heartbreaking, struggling, mundane, down-and-dirty table-top role-playing game about martial artists in the 20th century. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/jameskerr/fight-to-survive/

We're working towards our fourth stretch goal now and it's a great time to take part.

GUARDIANS OF AGTHOR, our fourth Kickstarter, is alive and kicking! It's a 5E adventure setting book where we reimagine the way "region" books are put together. Usually, these are designed with the traditional atlas/gazetteer format, which is cool, but we decided to take a risk and try something different (fingers crossed!) The approach we're taking is to present the content so each piece stands alone, whether it's an adventure site, a primary antagonist, a new monster, or a key location. It's like à la carte game content! The idea is that you can flip open the book, find something cool, and easily pull it into your game without needing the rest of the info in the book to make it work. Plus, we are putting it together so player's get as much use out of the content as the gamemaster, offering ways to weave the content into character backstories, inspire cool character goals, and generally create a better game for everyone. AND we still have a background framework in place that weaves all the bits together into a coherent whole.

Please check it out and let us know what you think!
