I present to you the new Crowdfunding Collection #115, including every tabletop rpg project started between 08/04 and 08/18.

After having been to the RatCon convention, there are no fewer than 66 projects.
First I’d like to briefly address the two German language ones. Dungeon Crawl Classic is being translated by System Matters and I am tempted; despite the artwork. Fans of The Dark Eye and Cthulhu should check out Sandy Petersen’s Cthulhu Mythos für das Schwarze Auge which combines the unlikely pair.
Onto the English projects, I am quite enticed by the Patreon of Samjoko Publishing for creating the Babel Magazine. The magazine offers English translations from tabletop rpgs from all over the world, an exciting endeavor, which got me to join the projects in the second I learned of it.
If you like gm-less story games, you should have a look at Dusk to Midnight. The game puts the players in the role of mech-soldiers doomed to be on the loosing side of a war, while not necessarily ending in tragedy. I consider the setting interesting, the zine-format as nifty and backed it. Another interesting setting, in my opinion,  is offered by Titans Trail. The combination of Mecha, Kajiu und Victoriana, basically putting Pacific Rim and Dowtown Abbey into a mixer does sound intriguing enough that I got an eye on it. In comparison the setting of USAGI YOJIMBO is almost traditional. As traditional as a samurai tale with anthropomorphic animals can be. The setting is based on the Manga by the same name and the new edition does got fitted with the PbtA-engine. Which sounds quite cool. I haven’t read the „For the Crown and the Dragon“ novel by Stephen Hunt, sollten yet if you did – or like „weird historical fantasy“ – you might take a look at the Crown and Dragon Kickstarter, which fits it with the Savage World system. The Realm of the Gateway offers an original setting that spans and combines science fiction and fantasy covering various genres. If you are curious, you can check out the base rules on DTRPG. Back to a Story Game, Collateral Damage puts you in the role of the side-characters in an action scenario. This can cover various genres, as long as there is action, and the main goal is to make it out alive. The game aims to provide a fast one-shot experience and does sound fascinating.
There are as well two Break Kickstarter campaigns. Carbyne Jungle has an interesting setting of mixing science fiction and fantasy while offering three distinctly different play modes that can still be utilized in one game with each other. Which sounds like quite a feat and spiked my interest. Then there’s Broken! which doesn’t have either a setting or a system, but lets backers vote on it via their pledges, which I find quite strange.
Of course there are other projects, like the D&D sourcebooks The Islands & Aswangs Book, offering an insight into Filipino myth and folklore, and Witchcraft: Magic of Hereva, for the fans of the web comic. There are many cool sourcebooks to help you build your setting or city like Magical Industrial Revolution, City Builder and Maps: Buildings, Castles and Dungeons.
Well, there are many more sourcebooks, adventures, dice and many many other projects, see for yourself:

star Englisch
I’m putting together a modest zine dedicated to translated little games that are not yet available in English. I’m paying a team of freelance translators from around the world with a passion for tabletop roleplaying games, hacks, poems, LARP, you name it, to find and translate games they’re particularly interested in so that I can publish them in Babel. I hope that sounds interesting to you, too, and that you’ll put some dollars down to help make it happen.

Du bist kein Held! Du bist ein Abenteurer: Ein Plünderer, ein Langfinger, ein Heidentöter, ein verschwiegener Hexer, der vergessene Geheimnisse hütet. Du trachtest nach Reichtum und Ruhm, gewinnst sie mit Schwert und Magie, während du im Blut und Schmutz der Schwachen, der Lichtscheuen, der Dämonen und der Bezwungenen watest. Da unten, in der Tiefe, warten Reichtümer auf dich. Und sie sollen dir gehören …
Dungeon Crawl Classics bringt dich zurück ins Jahr 1974, dem Jahr, als das erste Rollenspiel der Welt entstand. Es bringt dich zurück in eine Welt der Sword-&-Sorcery-Abenteuer. In eine Welt, die es neu zu entdecken gilt!

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.
