Liberté started its second, this time round likely successful, attempt at funding the translation of the French PbtA game. The game focusses on essentially lost children in a world devoid of adults under a constant rain. The setting is quite interesting, it looks cool and I recommend having a look at it. Have I had more money, I’d back it. If you would prefer a low fantasy game, check out The Hero’s Journal. It orients itself at the classic of the genre, looks nice and combines an OSR system with modern elements. Then there’s Glitch, which I too would describe as fantasy. You’ll play gods who went full amageddon on the world and then noticed it was a flawed action. Now they got to do some investigative stuff and fix things. The setting approach is quite unique and the system is interesting. I’ll be having a closer look at it later. Though, if your like your fantasy steamy, err steampunk, take a look at Mighty Tiny: Tales of the Old Empires. The game is based on the comics of Ben Dunn and offers a setting and system that’s compatible with Savage Worlds and D&D 5E. Last but not least take a look at the Hexagon system. I do actually like the idea of putting the rules on a bunch of character sheets, which looks great.
Then there are two gangster rpgs. There is Mafia Caporegime , offering a totally new game. The characters aim to claim the title of caporegime and thus upturn the local mob. Something which will be supported by their background. The game offers 7 character classes and an entry level adventure. I do would like to have had some more infos about the rules, and asked for them, yet did back it. I think it’s worth having a look. The twist of CAPERS RPG is that the players play superpowered gangsters during the prohibition. I already backed the card based system in a previous project, and do feel tempted to get this deluxe edition too.
If you rather have a good old, well new, game book, take a look at Ghost Ops – Operation Lone Wolf. Then there is the Dungeon Party hybrid rpg. Hybrid, because I didn’t really see the rpg aspect in what appears to be a straight fantasy themed social card game.
There are of course other cool projects like the Blood Floats in Space setting for the Mothership RPG, which caught my eyes with its interesting illustration. The sourcebook The Forgotten Rites of the Moldering Dead for DCC focuses on death, dying, rituals, the undead and more. Which is why I do strongly consider backing it. Another cool thing is the Fungi Fight for Freedom Adventure where you play mushroomy adventures who fight for their freedom. Well, and there a cool, little, handcrafted leather maps to be found in the MeepleCraft Mini Maps project.
