I present to you the new Crowdfunding Collection #109, including every tabletop project started between 06/02 and 06/09.

This week I’d really like to highlight Adventures in Austerion. The game offers stunning artworks and is a fascinating mix of a boardgame and a tabletop rpg without loosing the latter identity. It’s available in English and French and I backed it the moment I found the project, I do highly recommend checking it out. Another interesting game is Sleepaway. The game focuses on campsite horror story and does so by using the Belonging Outside Belonging System from Avery Alder, thus I am tempted. If you are looking for a traditional approach, check out Dungeons & Delvers. It offers exploring dungeons, killing monsters and looting all with a system inbetween D&D 3E and 5E. If you like D&D5E you’ll find that both Amazing Adventures and Rocket Age RPG use the system. Amazing Adventures aims to offer a setting neutral approach, enabling you to play horror, SF, modern, pulp and games set in other genres. In contrast Rocket Age does focus on the titular genre. Battlestations DIRTSIDE isn’t a D&D 5E yet am wonder how much of an RPG is it at all, as game set in a SciFi setting boarders the line of board- and tabletop roleplaying game. Native American Role-Playing Game is a more ttrpg and has a very interesting pitch, yet the presentation of the project took my enthusiasm down and I haven’t got trust that it will deliver. Stormforged on the other hand looks way better and appears to deliver a solid fantasy game.
There are more cool projects like Necronomiconis by Artisano Del Reyes (on Kickstarter and Verkam) which aims to produce a stunningly beautiful Cthulhu acessoire book. Then there’s the French urban fantasy game Cities and Crimes, which I would have backed in a blink of an eye, were they to deliver to Germany. Thus I have to hope that enough French, Belgian and Swiss gamers back it so it comes to be.
There are many, many more cool crowdfundings, see for yourself:

I present to you the new Crowdfunding Collection #108, including every tabletop project started between 05/27 and 06/02.

This collection contains a bunch of role-playing crowdfundings I am interested in. Like Rust Hulks which offers space exploration trucking style – a mixture of Alien, Firefly with parts of Star Wars – while being Powered by the Apocalypse. Which is an enticing combination. I am as well tempted by Quietus, a role-playing game that aims to provide „melancholic horror“ in the style of movies like Oculus or The Strangers. It’s fitted for smaller group of one to two players plus a GM and is designed to be experienced in One -Shots, system-wise it’s one of the first „Powered by the Dark“ systems – named after Blades in the Dark – I’ve noticed. Speaking of Blades, there is the BLADE RPG, while being a fantasy game I am still drawn in by the beautiful artwork, an interesting system and the sympathetic video presention.
The StoryMaster’s Tales „Weirding Woods“ is the first of three… I’ll call ‚em „hybrid rpgs“. With Weirding Woods being more traditional and basically combinig tabletop rpg with board game elements in a fantasy setting. Escape in the Dark on the other hand provides a Science Fiction setting and offers an interesting mix of tabletop rpg, game book and Hands of Fate (the videogame, imho). Last but not least of the three is CircleTales Adventures, an interesting storytelling game in the more literal sense.
If you like Larp and Poker, take a look at The Deal – which aims to bring both together. I personally do recommend the Patreon of Blood on the Thames. They do offer really cool V5 actual plays and I think their efforts deserve support. If you like The Dark Eye, the translation of the famous German rpg, you should considering checking the Magic of Aventuria sourcebook by Ulisses – from my understanding an integral part to the enjoyment of the setting and game.
There are, of course, many more cool projects, just take a look:

I present to you the new Crowdfunding Collection #107, including every tabletop project started between 05/12 and 05/27.

After a small break and the fantastic Larp experience Club Babylon Schwarz, I had a small delay, yet present to you the collection in full.

Among the German projects you can see that ICONs RPG Assemble Edition and Savage Worlds Abenteuer Edition are receiving a translation if funded. Next to those the pre-order for Malmsturm – Länder des Sturms is started, it isn’t exactly a crowdfunding, yet imho as a original Fate setting and game it deserves a shoutout.
There are plenty English games as well. Like Dark Trails, which caught my eyes because of the cool sugar skull thumbnail design and essentially promises Deadlands with a DCC ruleset. ‚TWAS -The RPG before Christmas is a game based on the game book by the same game book. It does offer a rules light system and aims to enable players to delve into legends and fairy tales. Then there’s Gate Watch, a small, card-based, GM-less game in which players explore what lays behind the titular gate.
I am backing Dust Wardens, which is a Powered by the Apocalypse game, which explores queere communities on a road trip during the post-apocalypse. The fact that its offered in zine form makes it rather inexpensive. Then there’s Hearts of Wulin a PbtA games that offers Wuxia action. Then there is Harsh Generations which explores a fallen America with a mix of PbtA and Fate mechanics.
Among the Fantasy games I would like to highlight Pirates of Pugmire by Onyx Path. It offers cool pirate setting with dogs, and cats, and birds exploring the high seas. Then there’s the red box of Dungeons & Delvers offering classical and Heola: The Starborn offering low fantasy. If you like your fantasy to be dark & metal you might rather – or in addition – have a look at MÖRK BORG, DEATHROLL or Sideralia.
Next to those there are SF games, like Zoetrope. Zoetropes offers time traveling adventures that are fun, card based and rules-light. If you like to explore the edges of known space you might give the OSR, Black Hack game Golgotha a go. While if you are into retrofuture Cyberpunk and fitting 90s anime you should check out Hard Wired Island. Last but not least Vintage Space promises optimistics disco-era SciFi.
There are of course plenty more interesting, engaging, cool projects. A gamebook named Twisty Little Passages, exciting settings like Ultramodern for D&D 5E, dice projects like the nifty Dice of the Giants or the eatable Sweet Rolls, there are Gamer Pens, a Sunset to Sunrise Larp set in the World of Darkness and many, many more projects! Take a look for yourself:

I present to you the new Crowdfunding Collection #106, including every tabletop project started between 04/28 and 05/12.

As I had to fight, and am fighting, some health issue the collection got delayed a week, which is why it sport a big number of very cool projects with no fewer than 15 rpgs being funded.
The only game I backed though is A Cool and Lonely Courage, in the groups takes on the roles of women of the resistance in France during the war. Another rpg tackling history is Making History, which offers not one but three games with two set in the past. The games are short and concise, which I find interesting. I’m as well interested in Mud, Blood, & Glory, which is a game set in the Wild West, with seemingly more traditional mechanics, which I got starred too.
Another game that I got starred is Afterlife. Taking on the role of dead people trying to find out who they were in a surreal adventure sounds interesting. I do think that the approach of Facing the Titan which focus on the cost of the fight against Titans more than the tactic is interesting to. As is the Orpheus Protocol which offers a more traditional Urban Fantasy setting. Then there’s the Advanced: Pandemonium with a dystopian ScyFy fantasy Setting and the rather simple and fun S3RPG game. If you like science fiction you can look forward to the Traveller Fifth Edition, if you are more into Cyberpunk have a look at GeneFunk 2090 or if you’re more into SyFy take alook at Flotz. Fantasy enthusiast on the other hand can select from Five Torches Deep, Dimensions, Far Away Land and Escape from Orodor.
There are many more interesting project, like the Patreon of Eric Franklin for the Kicksnarker community, the Kingmaker project by Paizo on the GameOnTabletop platform, the Leather D20 Dice Bag Kit offering a do-it-yourself project for creating dice bags, a Dice Charger for lumicent dice, the LumaCast to literally luminate area of effects and many, many more:

I present to you the new Crowdfunding Collection #105, including every tabletop project started between 04/21 and 04/28.

In this collection you’ll find the game A Town Called Malice, a game that aims to replicate the atmosphere of Nordic Noir stories. It does so by using the system of Home by Dark, a narrative one that might be compable to Fiaso. Once Upon a Time in Jianghu on the other hand offers a Powered by the Apocalypse take on Wuxia Action. Where as Spaceships & Starwyrms brings you space action with mechanics inspired by D&D 5E.
Then there’s Space Cats, a Fate based game about the titular space faring cats that’s designed to be suitable for kids. It has the added bonus that – given it funds – the funds will help real kittens. Fate of Cthulhu is another Fate project, which handels the Mythos. Though if you ain’t in the USA you can’t get the physical book through the project. If you like Fantasy RPGs there are Paths: World of Adia and First Kings. I personally do like Charmed & Dangerous: A Princess Adventure Game, where one plays different princesses – though am not sure how much of an RPG it is.
You’ll find lots of other cool projects, like the French Bitume, just take a look:

I present to you the new Crowdfunding Collection #104, including every tabletop project started between 04/14 and 04/21.

Easter approaching didn’t slow down rpg crowdfundings, thus let’s get started.
One Child’s Heart offers a very interesting game about empathy, hope and personal connections. It puts the player in the roles of child welfare professional who explore the memories of a kid, trying to help and heal. I consider the concept quite interesting and recommend having a look. If you are looking for a game for kids, instead about them, check out the A.R.M.zine. Then there is Big Eyes, Small Brains, which takes the BESM approach to Anime and aims at providing fast and fun one-shot games. If you’re more in creating your own setting, you might like to check out COMIRPG. I personally am more into science fiction and thus Zoetrope caught my attention. It has a card based system and one does play time travellers trying to keep time in shape. Then there is Augusta Universalis, which offers some really cool looking mech or rather power suits and promises tons of actions.
The only game I actually backed, while technically only being like role-playing game adjenct, is Vampire: The Masquerade – Heritage. It’s a legacy boardgame with lots of cards and as I was a V5 supporter right next to one of their demo tables during SPIEL it looks really, really good.
There are of course more project, like PuzzleTales. It doesn’t describe itself as a „game book“, but after checking out the description I think that’s what it is. I do actually like and consider backing the Pride Dice Bags. There is a Turn Keeper which looks mighty cool, Project Orion will help you paint your minis and I am quite astonished that 5e Fantasy RPG Advent Calendar and Terror at Weihnachten invoke christmas mood during Eastern.
You’ll find these and more projects here:

I present to you the new Crowdfunding Collection #103, including every tabletop project started between 04/01 and 04/14.

I paused because I went to a convention last week, thus you’ll find no less than 66 projects of whom 17 are new games. You’ll find that both  Old-School Essentials and Dark Conspiracy, are English games from Germany. While Old-School Essentials does apparently continue in the B/X tradition, Dark Conspiracy offers a new edition of the intruiging setting.
In the corner of Urban Fantasy RPG you might explorer the inner teenage monster of your character with I WAS A TEENAGE CREATURE. Something that you can explore as well with Monsterpunk, alas in a post-apocalyptic seeting and not necessarily as a teen.  Relics: A Game of Angels will place you in the supernatural shoes of an Angel, who’ll discover their history with the tarot based system from Alas Las Vegas.
I wasn’t actually sure whether Fairies or Fight! qualify as Urban Fantasy, but I like both and might back them. While you’ll play collaborative, team-building und kind of peaceful fairies in Fairies – what a surprise – Fight sets you up like a fighter in one of the fighting video games.
Among the Science Fiction games I like Lancer the most. Nothing beats fighting in a big mecha than fighting in a bigger Mecha. Though you might as well like to take a look at Pater Asteri.
Then there are two cool Cyberpunk games with Latch Key and Deniable Assets. The latter has you taking the side of the corporation, which is less punk, but still very cool.
If you like the idea, but prefer Fantasy, take a look at For the Dungeon!, where you basically are the deniable assets of a dungeon lord. The Blackest of Deaths offers a more traditional approach and experience, reminding me of OSR games. If you like a more narrative and story-driven approach, take a look at Infinity’s Edge. Then there is Sundown, which is a rules-lite game that claims to offer you pre-industrial transhumanism.
Among the other projects you might like to support Klara H. Herbøl (LadyGamer), who is a freelance writer for Onyx Path, V5 and in general creates RPG content. Nemesis of the Nin Witch finances a new gamebook, The Magicians aims to create a supplement enabling play in the popular series, there are really big dLUX Jumbo and fancy Dynasty Procelain dice, you’ll find a Hellraiser Inspired Puzzle Box container, there is the World’s Finest Wallet of Holding Portemonaie, a smoke launcher for your table names Monsters of Nature and many, many more interesting projects which you’ll find here:

I present to you the new Crowdfunding Collection #102, including every tabletop project started between 03/25 and 03/31.

To delve into the last collection being spread via Google+, I would recommend the 2. edition of the Powered by the Apocalypse The Fellowship. I did already back the first edition and am very happy about the book I got and the light-hearted setting. I am as well enticed by Ballad of the Pistolero, the game which has its system roots in a d100 warhammer-like system, offers „action western“. Which is basically Western like you’ll find it in Red Dead Redemption. I do like the artworks and am tempted to actually back it. Then there is Castles & Cats, which tries to create a cool game for preschoolers and elementary aged kids utilizing cards. It may deserve consideration if you got kids of said age range. The last full rpg project is the 2. edition of Infinite Power, a d8 based superhero system, which only has a total runtime of 8 days. If you like superhero you should check it out fast.
With Wiseguys I backed a setting in a split setting, despite not being a big fan of Savage Worlds. On the one hand because the book explores organized crime through various genre lenses, which is something I collect. On the other hand, because it looks really cool and well made. The pricing is nice, and it’s the first kickstarter I backed for a portrait level. Another cool project is Contagion Chronicles by Onyx Path. It’s a setting to campaign supplement for the Chronicles of Darkness which aims to enable the players to create cool crossover chronicles. I would recommend it to.
With Eidbrecher – Die Jäger you’ll find a D&D 5E and Pathfinder RPG adventure from Germany. It looks cool, and if you’re interested in German games, I would suggest you check it out.
There are many more cool projects, which you can find here:

I present to you the new Crowdfunding Collection #101, including every tabletop project started between 03/17 and 03/25.

I do like the approach of Pretty Fairy Princess which is a proudly dainty game. You’ll play a thumbsized fairy princess and her compagnions. The projects loos very cute and I recommend having a look at it… fast. Because it will end at 03/26 1am CET or 5pm PST.
Another project I do recommend wholeheartidly is Critical Core, which is a fantasy rpg that aims to help children on the autistic spectrum. Check it out, and maybe consider adding your support.
Ruin Masters on the other hand is a totally classic fantasy role-playing game with cool illustrations and a solid system. If you like to play a game in a more contemporary setting, well Fellowship of the White Star addresses the roaring twenties and adds in the supernatural for good measures, then there is the neon-lit Night Life having you roam around as a wizard in the 80s and last but not least you have the option to leap into the 21st century and enjoy superheroe shenannigans with Prowlers & Paragons.
There are many more worthwhile projects. Like Save College of Wizardry! which tries to save the blockbuster Larp event after Dziobak Studios, the original company, went belly up and closed. Then there is Mother of Darkness which aims to translate an impressive looking supplement for Symbaroum and I do say that the dice trays and dice in The Inspiration Collection look quite stylish.
If you’re interested in German tabletop games you might like to take a look at Fallen World. The game features a science fiction setting with some endtime-elements sprinkled in and might be worth having a look.
You find these and more projects here, just take a look:

I present to you the new Crowdfunding Collection #100, including every tabletop project started between 03/10 and 03/17.

This time around I’ll present you with 31 projects, among whom there are many really interesting ones.
Like Dark Streets and Darker Secrets, which according to its own description covers urban horror and modern fantasy genre wise. I’d summarize it as urban fantasy and consider the old school approach quite something new. Considering I followed it before the start, and love urban fantasy I backed it without hesitation. If you like to follow suite, you should be fast, as the project will end on Wednesday.  Another project I liked and back is Mysthea by Jay Iles. I am already enamored with Jays Legacie game line and fancy the geomantic fantasy approach of this Powered by the Apocalypse inspired game.
Cut to the Chase has the interesting aspect of offering a 2-player game concept, with the players assuming the roles of predator and prey respectively. I am strongly tempted by the projects and got it starred. If you like a more traditional fantasy game, with still a narrative approach, you should check out MIGHT & MAGIC which appears to be inspired by Might & Mystic. I do consider card based systems cool and would recommend taking a look at BASE: a CaRdPG, which offers a generic, universal system and thus doesn’t come with a setting. Then again, if you are a metal head, you might enjoy checking out METAL WORLD. Gadzook confused me a bit, as its a hybrid between being a role-playing and a skyrmish game, if you like both, it might be worth taking a look at it.
I did back the source book CAPERS Noir for CAPERs in a blink, as I love the base game and gangsters – especially noir style – is a fancy of mine. I feel very strongly tempted to back the Welcome to Tikor setting and artbook as I got another weak spot for afropunk and the like, yet I’ll likely wait till the original system for the setting is available. If you like to support the creation of the system, you might like to check out the Swordsfall Patreon.
Next to those you’ll find cool accessoires like the Dungeon Quills, which are basically fancy pens, and the Trailblazer Game stamps, which enable you to stamp out a map. There is an interesting podcast present with Mud & Blood and I do like the design of the dice by Kenzie. Tho they are imho quite expensive and the project presentation isn’t to my requirements. You’ll find more interesting projects like the D&D supplemtents, including one by Monte Cook.
Amon the non-english projects I got charmed by España Caníbal. Were my Spanish better than it is, I would back it. Even with the state of my language skills, I feel tempted to back the very Spanish Post-Apocalyptic setting with a dash of organized crime.
Just take a look at the collection and see if you find something that tickles your fancy:
