I present to you the new Crowdfunding Collection #151, including every tabletop rpg project started between 09/20 and 09/27.
The collection is back to its normal, weekly release and thus offers a short, yet mostly very delightful, list of projects. Enjoy!
I will start with the Good Strong Hands RPG, which offers a dark game with whimsical elements. The name is inspired by the heart wrenching scene of the Neverending Story and the setting premise does somewhat follow the book/movie as the players try to save the world of Reverie from the destructive „Void“. Thus the stories focus on friendship, teamwork, dangerous forces and handling a world in crisis. The world of Reverie is created by the players in a group effort, as it is a world of imagination. The system offers gamebooks and a d6 pool system. I feel very tempted to back it, and recommend you take a look. I am as well enticed to back the 2nd edition of Kingdom. The game, by renowned game designer Ben Robbins, has you forming a community ~ well the titular kingdom ~ and explore what happens to it. The concept is cool, and you can be quite sure Ben delivers. Fans of genre pieces like Indiana Jones, the Mummy, Uncharted & co. should have at Broken Compass. The game has already funded, and created an Italian edition, and now its up to get the books out in English. You can check out the quickstart rules, and I do love that the core book is presented in a notebook/journal style book. Which is, why I do consider backing it, while not being that much interested in the genre. Which is cool too. It helps, that the game looks great. If you are looking for a new system, along with settings, you should check out Epic! Game System: Realms of Mana and Stars of Mana. The system is promised to be brand new, and will be available under an OGL like license. Next to that you’ll get a fantasy setting in Realms of Mana and a science fiction sandbox setting in Stars of Mana. A nice project, that does appear to have a lot of work being done at…
The times of corona, might have you looking for another journaling rpg, in which case Down the Old Rail Line has you covered. It’s a small, charming, PDF only game, in which you take a bicycle trip through a fantasy world and note down the foreign landscape and events. Next to being nice, it is at a rather low price bar.
Fans of game books, should check out the Arkham Archives, which explore the works and settings of Lovecraft. The project offers the first part of a five part series. Next to a book, you’ll get a stylish deck of cards, which got me hooked, especially at ‚just‘ 15€. Take a look.
There are other cool projects, like the The Wagadu Chronicles. Next to a nice, isometric afrofantasy MMO, it offers a D&D 5E setting book to go along with it. I did join the nice project from a game dev studio in Berlin (Germany) and recommend you have a look. If you wonder how to put more Dragons into your D&D game, checkout The Cosmic Dragon Breviary: A Draconic Compendium – it gets you a lot of draconic stuff. Though if you up for an adventure, pardon an incursion, for the Trophy RPG, take a look at Alchemy. Then there are Ice Dice, offering you a mold to create ice dice, to keep your drinks cool. The Amazing Fireball Dice on the other hand ain’t to hot to game, and look great. There is a deck of card like the Itemancy Cards for D&D or a soundscapelike Winter RPG Adventure.
