I present to you the new Crowdfunding Collection #87, including every tabletop project started between 10/22 till 11/04.

November has seen the start of an staggering amount of fresh projects, 70 in total and no less than 20 new, english RPG games.

Amon all those projects I backed no less than seven and got quite some more starred.
One of the first I backed and would like to recommend was Nahual. I followed its development since the creators worked on it on Patreon and am fascinated by the Urban Fantasy with a distinct Mexican touch. Well, and I do still fancy powered by the apocalypse games. Then there is Kamigakari – God Hunters, a translation of an Japanese RPG. Which offers cool artworks, promises interesting action in an Urban Fantasy setting and the system looks solid. Thousand Arrows does as well put its focus on Japan and Asia, though more from a historic to fantasy point of view. Considering its done with PbtA I couldn’t resist.
Thousand Year Old Vampire had me pretty much at „Vampire“. Though I am as well intruiged by the solo-gaming approach and by the fact that one gets to play their Vampire for a thousand years. Making it a „must back“ next to my buzzword. Never Going Home addresses the horrors of World War I and does mix in some cthulhoid horror. While the Cthulhu factor wasn’t exactly a selling point for me, the presentation convinced me that its done in taste and quite fascinating. Thus I pledged for it. Four Ways to Die in the Future focuses on death and the finality of life in a very serious, earnest approach. The four games are interesting, even though I do consider at least one is to intense for my liking. Yet the other games and the way how the topic is approach, that it is approached, makes it a „must pledge“ for me.I do recommend all the games I pledges to whole heartily.
Next to those I backed Chicago By Night – for Vampire: The Masquerade 5th Edition which isn’t a game but a source book for V5. I am a massive fan of Vampire, I do enjoy the 5th Edition and just ran about 14 to 16 games during SPIEL. Thus I eyed this project it so closely that I managed to be back number 2. The book does not only offer some metaplot advancement, provides the city of Chicago as a playground with many story hooks but will introduce the Lasombra as a playable clan. The first two stretch goals included some really interesting expansion of the folios and the fourth stretch goal does enhance the book as well. Plus the books will be available in regular retail! I am super hyped and do hope that you might consider it too.
Among the projects which I almost backed is After the End. A French game that offers a fascinating mis of boardgame elements, standing campaign play and role-playing. I spoke with the creators (during SPIEL) and was quite fascinated. Die Laughing by Craig Campbell is a little, charming horror rpg. Considering the creator did good things with Capers I do recommend taking a look. Another interesting game is Black Iron.
I’d like to (very) briefly address the German projects. So nicht, Schurke! is the translation of „No Thank you, Evil!“ which I would have backed, if I have had kids. Fallen Worlds is a small SF/endtime games. While  Hexenjagd offers a supplement for HeXXen 1733.

You’ll find plenty more, cool, engaging games, supplements, adventures and rather unique to weird stuff (socks!),… just have a look:
