I present to you the new Crowdfunding Collection #72 – Part 2 of 3, including every tabletop project started between 03.05 and 03.25.

Thanks to the sheer amount of projects started within the past three weeks, I decided to split the collection into three parts. This part does contain roughly half of all the English projects.

Cartel by Mark Diaz Truman is my current favorite crowdfunding project. The powered by the apocalypse game does place the player characters in Durango, Mexiko where they are engulfed in the machinations of the Sinaloa Cartel. I do took interest in the game ever since I heard about if in 2016, read the Ashcan edition as well as am doing my best to follow the information and discussion. So far I am absolutely convinced of the quality, playability of the game as well as of Marks capability to deliver. Two aspects, among many, that do endear the game to me are, that it is written with a profound knowledge of the culture, and that it offers a different take on the organized crime tabletop rpg genre as you are less busy trying to play a gang that advances through the structure but people who got to handle all the mess that cartel involvement (and their own actions) does subject them to. You can check out the project page, the free Quickstart or one of the many actual plays provided.  While I do usually not include playing cards projects, I couldn’t help but find The Ode To La Catrina really befitting and beautiful, and hence would recommend it alongside Cartel.
If you do prefer another take on crime and gangsters, take a look at Capers. Which sees you assuming the roles of gangsters in the roaring 20s, yet with the twist of superpowers. It looks like a fun settings, offers a neat card based mechanic and I did back as well as recommend it.
Another game I backed is Flying Circus. A PbtA-Game set in a slightly different world during the ~20s to 40s, in which the world wars didn’t happen but some apocalypse did. You’ll assume the roll of daring, dashing pilots fighting a good fight or so. The main feature of the game, for me, is it’s cool air combat mechanic, that did see me convinced.
If you like dog fights and dieselpunk, look no further than Fuel Priest. Which offers airborne action in a dieselpunk setting. The game will give the players agency to design the setting and offers a rather story oriented system. I am intrigued and got the project starred for future notice. Well, and last but not least, Irradiated offers a colorful, post-apocalyptic setting with a Quickstarter available.
Among the supplements you’ll find a re-print of the „to cute to be true“ (but actually true) Baby Bestiary and in regards of the campaigns I took quite some interest in Emissary Lost for Coriolis, specially with all the translations going on and as I backed the KS for the main projects.
Next to those I felt tempted by the Gametee: Finest Leather Notebooks, alas if I had more money. The Demon Sigil Pins are quite cool as well and I imagine the Glow Battle things might be impressive in Boffer fights (for a Cyberpunk campaign).
Next to those there are many more cool projects, like There and Back Again: An Anthology of Travel and Gaming, which I really do hope will fund as I enjoy tabletop and larp rpg related traveling a lot. Just take a look:

How to get into the Collection

There are essentially two ways for a project to be included

) I do try to actually find each and every new project. On the one hand, I do use my Crowdfunding Suchliste (It is essentially a list of links). On the other hand, I do try to keep close tabs on several communities, groups, forums, newsletters etc.

) I do have to rely on readers, project creators or fans pointing out projects to be included in the collection. Because several platforms like Patreon, IndieGoGo, Startnext, and more offer no option to enter a search term and look for the newest started project.

If you like to submit a project or your project. There are just a few things to watch:
The project should be somewhat related to tabletop role-playing.
The project should be live and preferably still live when the collection goes up.
The project shouldn’t be included in a previous collection.

Usually, I am happy with any suggestions. It’s as well a method to make sure I include a project which is out of range for my completist approach. As, for example, I don’t include every convention project or every miniature/terrain/map project.
