I present to you the new Crowdfunding Collection #132 – Part 1 of 2, including every tabletop rpg project started between 01/26 and 02/02.

February introduces the Zine Quest 2 Kickstarter event, which follows a very productive week in regards to projects started. Thus there are a total of 79 projects, about 26 offering new games. To make it a bit more accessible, I decided to split the collection.
Do take a look at part 2!

I will start by focusing on the „normal“ projects.
Cowebs will be a game by Exalted Funerals, which offers a Neo Noir experience. Basically a game in the wake of FFO Limetown, Mind Mgmt and The X-Files. There are cases with a twist, which needed to be explored and revealed. It’s a gm-less game, that utilizes a fascinating looking „map“ and is played with 4d6 and 1d12. I recommend having a look. After ending its Kickstarter successfully Hexagon continues it with a IndieGoGo campaign. I would take a look, though flexible funding and to many other projects are keeping me away.
One of the many other cool projects is The Elephant & Macaw Banner Role-Playing Game. Based on the novel by the same name it offers a uniquely Brazilian setting. I like the description, illustrations and am very tempted to back it. Especially with Tom McGreney having proven to be a reliable creator. Red Rook Revolt! is another fantasy game that caught my eye. The players assume the role of revolutionaries fighting against an imperial power. I am quite fascinated that the game addresses aspects like different views on families and on the working of the comunes. The system is mostly a bespoke one. Another cool project, well and a patreon, is The Chronicles of Ember. Which aims to essentially provide a Dark Souls experience. Like, not so much the mechanics, but the setting. The system it self apparently offers like 4 classes and a lot of skills. Just take a look.  If you want your fantasy more classical, take a look at Swords and Wizardry. Which is like super classic fantasy with an OSR like system. Mostly offering a ultimate collectors edition. Grab it if you like it. I do consider Pride of Giants quite cool, with the giant bee-monster an all. System-wise it’s d20 with tons of skills. Offering a delicious crunchy meal. Last but not least you’ll find the Venture & Dungeon fantasy games. Yeah, games. Two at once. With a PbtA-like system. Focused on belonging. Which is quite interesting.
You might be looking for a more universal system.
Era d10 Fundamentals is a hack for the Era games and offers you the opportunity to build your own with the system. Just take a look. Another universal game is GMD Core RPG, which looks nice.
There are two games combining various game styles. Blastback: Sci-Fi Superhero Escape Horror RPS combines Escape games and tabletop rpg for an Urban Fantasy game. Then there’s. Band Battle Royale, which mixes up role-playing with card games to make the players band famous.
Considering there’s Choose Cthulhu 2, All for Anvil and Alice’s Nightmare in Wonderland you might basically roll around in game books. Where I like to give a shoutout towards Alice’s Nightmare in Wonderland, as I enjoyed the original project.
There are a lot of cool projects, like the Dice for All – even as they are imho to pricey -, the transparent dice, stuff like the Simple Spell Tracker and many projects more.
Just take a look:

Vorbestellung: Etwas zu verbergen

Deutsch https://www.system-matters.de/vorbestellung-etwas-zu-verbergen/
In Etwas zu verbergen spielt man eine Ermittlung in einem Mordfall. Jeder Spieler und jede Spielerin ist potentiell verdächtig und hat ein düsteres Geheimnis. Das Erzählspiel funktioniert dabei ganz ohne Spielleitung, so dass jeder an der Ermittlung teilnimmt. Man einigt sich gemeinsam auf ein Setting, in dem der Mord passiert und erschafft zusammen die einzelnen Orte, die für die Ermittlung wichtig sind. Anschließend werden Hinweise erdacht und auf die Orte verteilt. Was noch fehlt sind zwei hieb- und stichfeste Beweise, dass dein Charakter schuldig ist. Doch ob das wirklich stimmt, wird man erst im Spiel herausfinden …

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.
