I present to you the new Crowdfunding Collection #145, including every tabletop rpg project started between 06/14 and 07/05.
The collection has no fewer than 70 projects, which makes it massive. Thanks to reason of time, the sheer amount and my health, I didn’t took a deep dive into every project, but hope to offer an interesting overview…
You will find that the Slayers roleplaying game present you the opportunity to hunt monsters in a city that will be formed by your players. Next to 4 different classes the game sports an asynchron combat system, which I find very, very fascinating. There is a magazine based series of rpg games that will have have its first issue called Adventure Presents: Tartarus Gate. Within just 54 pages you’ll find a complete SciFi horror game that has everything included required to play, but the 3 six-sided dice. If you like to design your own setting, the BYTE RPG offers a d8 based system to facilitate it. Along with 7 ready made settings for those who aren’t that much into world building. If you are more a world building purist, and you are looking for „realistic“ rules, checkout the 5A System. It might got you covered.
If you are an anime fan and love the works of Studio Ghibli check out Monster Care Squad. In this game you’ll play as elite veterinarian who have to care about mythical creatures. Then there’s My Anime Story, if you like to implement your favorite anime setting yourself. Though the description is a bit bare bones.
Fully fleshed and aimed at kids it the rpg Fairies of the Mistglade. Which has separate tiers for the age groups of 3 to 5, 5 to 8 and 8+ years old. With varying approaches to arithmetics to support the development of the children playing. The second edition of SLICE on the other hand is designed by kids for kids. Which occurs to me is a sure way to make sure that kids are actually interested in it.
Straying away from children ~ maybe onto more people in puberty ~ who want to play a big, evil badguy, the Dark Lord has that covered. You assume the role of overlords who want to plunder, burn stuff down and kill the heroes. Thus you got a villain meetings and fitting campaign. If I were 20 years younger, I’d think that’s cool. Though the system does actually sound interesting. If you are interested in classic fantasy, maybe check out Alpha Duo. You can download the base version of the rules system for free. Then there’s the old school fantasy game Chronicles of the Secret Time from Italy. Which looks very cool and is worth having a look.
Fans of rule-lite game should check out Vizor with it’s dynamic character creation and utilization of cards, and/or Runt which focuses on a narrative approach and is genre agnostic.
If you open up the Storybox! project, you’ll get 8 narrative games in one kickstarter, and with Our Innermost Thoughts you’ll have 5 experience to explore yourself.
Maybe you are looking for a gamebook? Then check out the classical game book Myrrk Book One. It sounds legit. The Dark Village isn’t classic at all, but I think it is a good fit for the category and worth checking out.
Next to all those games, I think you should give the Campo de Mitos setting by Paco Jaen a chance. It takes the mythos to a place in Gibralta and looks very cool. The Sinful RPG sourcebook will enable to add sinful sprincles into your scenario. Where I am just in love with the design of the Elixier Dice. They got swirly, glittery stuff in them… beautiful! Though the dice from Dice Macabre and Dawn and Dusk got nice designs as well. Well, and if you are prone to say No More Dice,… that project offers an abacus like alternative to roling. It might be among the Things Heroes Say? Which is a collection of RPG phrases.
