I present to you the new Crowdfunding Collection #158, including every tabletop rpg project started between 01/12 and 01/17.

This Sunday the collection is back to its regular schedule, the number of projects isn’t as big as before, yet there are quite some nice ones among those started. Let’s get to them.

The game Dungeon Bitches pretty much had my attention with its name. As suggested by the title, you’ll be playing female or non-binary characters exploring and existing within a dungeon; in which they might feel more at home than within the outside world. The ruleslight game, that’s based in Powered by the Apocalypse systems, focuses on drama and relationships. The artwork is quite unique, and I’ll be trying to fit a physical edition into my budget. The game End Times has the characters engage in time travel to prevent one apocalypse, likely to be followed by the need to prevent another one and another one. Though it is less the characters in person travel through time (save from normal living) but rather their conciousness. The quite interesting setting can be played and explored by using either a Powered by the Apocalypse rules set or the „ORC 2.0“ system. Thus, enabling different approaches. In Coils of Chaos the apocalypse apparently has already taken place creating rather chaotic fantasy future. Which is fascilitated with the „Crux Engine“, using d4 dice which consequently can be upgraded to bigger dice.
If you are looking for a game more on the storytelling side of RPGs, check out Tapestry. You apparently lay out cards with buzzwords on them out akin to a domino game, and create the story along the impulses given. Which I consider quite fascinating.
This time around, I’ll be highlighting two Patreons as well. Let’s start with Nerdbert. He creates beautiful custom character sheets for Vampire: The Masquerade 5th edition, which I previously featured on my blogs. Considering I featured them, it is suffice to say that I do like and cherish them, and thus back his endeavor. You can get even more character sheets via the patreon of OldMightyFriendlyGamer (OMFG). His V5 sheets are quite stunning, and thus I joined to offer some support of mine as well. Hence my recommendation to check out both patreons.
You find those and a more, cool, worthy, projects here:

I present to you the new Crowdfunding Collection #157, including every tabletop rpg project started between 11/29 and 01/12.

Happy New Year! Following another long break, I am back with a fresh and illustrated collection.
I still remain at the clinic, yet finally could free some time and had the energy to go back to it. Sadly, a lot of projects have been started and ended between the last and this collection. I mentioned the ended projects I am aware off, at the end of the illustrated „live projects list“.

Considering there are currently 77 projects live, 19 English ttrpgs, I will keep the prologe to a few projects that caught my eye. Which enables me to get the list out today, and not at Sunday when likely a ton of new „make 100“ projects have been started.

I personally backed the The Monsters Are Our Heroes Print Tabletop RPG Zine. It offers a neat little game, in which I can play a Vampire ~ or a different monster ~ at a rather nice backer level and it looks like it is made with enthusiasm. Check it out. Then my eye caught the game Those Who Wander. While I am not such a big fan of „fantasy“ games, the inclusive approach to character creation caught my eye. As did the colorful cover of Space Aces: TNG (The New Guidebook). Which is a neat, little science fiction game. I am as well tempted to back the gamebook Alba – an Open World Adventure Book. It’s presentation is interesting, and the additional material is rad, maybe I’ll back it later on.
Fans of the Powered by the Apocalypse system should check out Babes in the Wood RPG, a game about having halloween themed adventures for kids, and/or ABYSS which rather induldges in supernatural Action-Horror ala Castlevania or Hellsing. Rune and Steel mostly caught my eye, as it kind of looks like the German tabletop rpg juggernaut The Dark Eye, though I haven’t delved deeper.

You find those and a great many more, cool, worthy, projects here:

I present to you the new Crowdfunding Collection #156, including every tabletop rpg project started between 11/08 and 11/29.

As a result of my stationary clinic stay, a severe alergic reaction and a bone bruise, the collection covers a timeframe of 4 weeks.

Because of the circumstances, and that the collection covers 100 projects, about 21 english games, I could neither illustrate them nor can I offer an intro as usual. I hope you still find value in this „abridged“ version of the collection.

I present to you the new Crowdfunding Collection #155, including every tabletop rpg project started between 11/01 and 11/08.

Despite I all challenges, I am back with a small, but excellent collection of ttrpg crowdfundings project started last week. Let’s delve into it.

I would like to start by presenting you Summon Skate. The project is about funding the translation of an existing Japanese ttrpg. The game itself has the players fighting strange, nightmarish monsters by summoning counter measures and fighting them… via figure skating. Which happens in a somewhat different temporary dimension, akin to X/1999. The game offers various difficulty settings and various game modes from conventions to campaigns. It’s really cool, and deserves more support. I am in and you should take a look. Maybe you like skeletons and want to have a fun game for one shots? Bones and Basements has you covered. You’ll be trying to please the Lich lord. It provides a rulelite system and fun approach to do so, thus take a look. Then there’s Nuclear Winter wonderland! For a glowing christmas season. Well, you’ll be playing Santas elves, who have to provide him with stuff to build toys for kids. Only problem, you are playing in a post-nuclear war world. It’s cute, zine sized and rules lite. Neat! Maybe you want to Boldy Go! where no one has gone before and explore space. Well, Boldly Go has you covered. While taking cues from Star Trek (TOS & TNG), the game only spans 80 pages, yet still enables you to craft your ship, crew and captain next to your characters. Take a look!
Of course there are more projects. Vice & Virtue a system-neutral mechanic to spice up your game with moral challenges and options to open up the direction of your games to players input. I am quite tempted. Fans of D&D 5E get a multitude of sourcebooks, adventures and with The Eastmere Lands a fresh setting. There are beer inspired dice with the Brew Dice, that actually look good, as do the SD Dice, Sharp Edge Dice Collection. Though am not sure about putting sharp edge dice into soap. You’ll find that Alis Games finances the Polish translation of Kult. Well and the two French projects – Hong Kong – Les Chroniques de l’Étrange and 27C – do look cool tool.

I present to you the new Crowdfunding Collection #154, including every tabletop rpg project started between 10/15 and 11/01.

Despite having limited internet access, I composed a collection, which I translated later than usual. I hope you still enjoy the projects started between 10/15 and 11/01.

Let’s start with the project named Xenolanguage. The game from the makers of Dialect explores understanding an alien language. Like in, a language spoken by aliens. The game offers quite unique and distinct mechanics, that enable a myriad of unique playthroughs. I am fascinated by the mechanics, the topic of languages and highly recommend having a look. I got the project on my list. If you want to explore an Elizabethan England, check out The Dee Sanction. A rules lite game in which you play characters who are traitors — charged with a death sentence under the Act Against Conjurations, Enchantments and Witchcrafts — given a second chance by defending Queen and country. The 60 page spanning zine is well worth having a look. If you always wanted to marry OSR and d20 modern, checkout Heavenscape: Reloaded. The game provides you with a whole multiversum to explore.
Which gets us neatly to the genre of Urban Fantasy. The funding of the second edition Urban Shadows is a true juggernaut of the genre. The award laden Powered by the Apocalypse game by Magpie Games sees the players playing various supernatural types in one group. Thus, it will make a nice addition to my love for the WoD which usually focus one kind of creature. I backed it, check it out. I am somewhat tempted by SHIVER, maybe because of the fanged thumbnail. The game aimes to have you play pulp, horror or scary tv shows and movies. A neat idea that uses unique dice. Then there’s Dark Places & Demogorgons 5e. Capitalizing in the Stranger Things hype by bringing the genre to D&D. The project looks great, and if you fancy the nostalgic 80s, check it out.
If you rather play in the future, after an apocalypse and fall of society, check out The Wildsea RPG. It presents a world covered in a verdant green and with a quite aggressive nature. The illustrations are lavish and d6 system ~ inspired Belly of the Beast and Blades in the Dark among others ~ is quite interesting. I am having an eye on it, and do recommend it. The Neon Lords of the Toxic Wasteland present a more classic take on the postapocalypse. The game is B/X based, the setting has the description „ultra violent“ and the illustrations remind me of 80s/90s comic. Check it out, if that sounds like your cup of tea.
For afficiandos of gamebooks, there’s the Metal Heroes and the Fate of Rock: A Rock/Comedy Gamebook. The book is a translation of a German gamebook and comes with a soundtrack. It’s cool, I am tempted by the German version and do highly recommend it. What Dreams May Come is a more classic gamebook, that offers a surreal horror story alongside beautifully haunting illustrations. Take a look.
There are many other cool projects. Fans of the MÖRK BORG RPG might like to checkout the sourcebook Strange Citizens of the City and play through the The Masticator Gate campaign. B/X enthusiasts can check out the Lost Triptych campaign. If you like some fancy dice, take a look at the Metal Bullet Dice. Well and you can place them right into the little wings of the dragon figurines of Draconis Vitae Dice by Geek and Artsy. Though maybe you just want a Grizzly Owlbear Plush during corona?
You’ll find those and many more projects in this list:

I present to you the new Crowdfunding Collection #152, including every tabletop rpg project started between 10/11 and 10/25.

After two weeks I am back with a fresh collection. I am not yet sure when I can do the next one, whether or not I can keep them up regularly, as I’ll be at a clinic for some time. Yet, let us dive right into this one.

Let’s start with a project I backed with great enthusiasm and passion: Thirsty Sword Lesbians! It is a game Powered by the Apocalypse system, which explores conflicts in a fantasy setting and the personal drama between the protagonists, and antagonists, that goes along with it. Right in the style and vain of series like SheRa or Revolutionary Girl Utena! The project nailed down the town, the playbooks themselves are inspiring, the preview looks promising and I trust Evil Hats ability to deliver. Plus, you’ll be supporting a diverse team of talented people. Check it out, it’s worth it! Making the vague theme of princesses a bit more concret you might like to have a look at The Excellents RPG. The game has an explicitely family friendly approach, offering adventures in a Cartoon world with a an extra portion of princesses. The game uses the Polymorph System, got some ENnies already and its financing a third print run. I’d say it is well worth having a look. Mud: A Golem Memoir takes a way more serious approach as in this solo-rpg you’ll be exploring life as a Golem. The zine sized game does explore challenging topics like the feeling to be out of the place in ones own body. I consider the game fascinating and I am tempted to back it. If your looking for a quick game with friends, check out Three-Step Plan. The game aims to offer one-shots and sports a character creation system in which you define the motivation and goal of your character first. The project does offer insight into various aspects of the game, and it might be worth having a longer look. If you are into creating your own worlds, instead of just characters, the reprint of the UNBOUND RPG will have you covered. Though you gotta be fast.
Fans of fantasy games should take a look at WanderSquares. Conceptwise it is somewhat between a gamebook and a ttrpg. The world gets laid out with cards and you check a book what will be happening on the tile in question. An interesting project, though my curiosity got spiked by the evocative artstyle. If you like out to explore dungeons Perilous Roleplaying has been covered. You’ll be creating the dungeon as you play and the game can be played with or without a GM, just as you like it. Then there’s EvenRa, offering a Fantasy world of its own, including races, creatures, classes and a dice system of its own. All explained in detail on the project page. I’d place After: Emerging from the Fall right between Fantasy and SciFi. The D&D 5E powered game explores the world in the far Cyberpunk future, after some apocalypse, that turned quite fantas-y It cools quite interesting, take a look.
If you are looking for a purely Cyberpunk game, check out Carbon 2185. A successful campaign will finance a fresh print run with a seriously updated core book. I remember seeing the game on Dragonmeet last year, and I do recommend it if you like Shadowrun or Altered Carbon! You might as well get so Anime inspired SciFi by pledging for Sengai Jidai. A Fate game, covering material from Sailor Moon, X/1999 up to Serial Experiment Lain, with an extra dose of cyborgs and Kajiu. Including a unique and beautiful artstyle! Take a look and support it, the project does need some more backers and would deserve them. I am personally looking forward to Drakar, as it uses not only d6 but dominoes as well! With a setting somewhere between Star Trek: The Next Generation and The Expanse I am hooked. I marked the microRPG for review and may pledge for it.
Fans of gamebooks should take a look at Haunted Tower – a mix of a classic gamebook and a comic with quite a Halloween vibe. For a more classic approach you should have a look at the The Iron Uprising: Wanderer Gamebook+. It will set you up with adventures involving cybered up dwarfs.
There are plenty more exciting and cool projects. For example the RS²: Roleplaying Social Relationship System zine, that provides tools to manage all those pesky relationships. I backed it. You might add music to your game with sourcebooks or rather materials like TRPG Tweaks. Well and the adventure Putrescence Regnant brings literal music to MÖRK BORG exploits – as it contains a vinyl. There are cool dice like the Birds of ParaDice or the Candy Heart d6 Dice Set. If you like to track your stats, check out The Amulet of Life. Well, and you can prepare to get festive with the Mythroll Armory’s Adorable Dungeon Christmas Ornaments.

I present to you the new Crowdfunding Collection #152, including every tabletop rpg project started between 09/27 and 10/11.

Back after two weeks with no less than a total of 91 projects, of which 18 are ttrpgs. If you like to get directly to the meat of the collection, just skip my rather long preamble.

Though lets start with Acheron. The game introduces the players to the concept of „Grimpunk“, which in this case involves alternative 1930ties. A world that offers eldritch horrors to be fought and overcome by the heroes. The system provides a mix of narrative elements, three sanity attributes and a deadly combat system. I think it’s interesting and deserves a look. Throwing Hornes offers less dark setting, as you set out for a tour with your demon metal band through hell. The game is presented as a small zine and played with d6. To stick to the topic of demons, and add some angels into the mix, in Era: Forbidden both are at war. You’ll be playing as supernaturally enhanced humans, trying to avoid that humanity ends up as a collateral of the raging war. In regards to mechanics it uses the well tested Era d10 System. Maybe you are looking for something narrative? Then check out Spindlewheel. A game in which you weave stories as a group with the help of tarot cards.
In regards of fantasy games, Yonder has the player characters flee from a calamity. The search for refugee and the run will bring their true character to the front, which may include literal transformation. I am intruiged, given that the book aimes to be graphic novel size (~150 pages) and the mechanics presented look interesting, I am in. If you like Blades in the Dark but look for some planar fantasy, check out Sig: City of Blades. The setting looks colorful, interesting and you should take a look for yourself. Maybe you played Stars without Numbers but wished it was fantasy? Then Worlds Without Number has you covered with their aesthetically pleasing take on bringing the OSR mechanics to a fantasy world.
There are some games, which imho fit the Halloween season fine. Like being scary but not to much horror. For example MORTASHEEN pretty much nails the look for me, even as it is a bit shy on how it is played. Then you should check out Gruesome Ghoulies. You’ll be playing rowdy ghouls, investigating mysteries, driving Hot Rods and playing Rock’n’Rool. The game is available in a free One-Sheet version and the Kickstarter aims to finances a zine upgrade. Cool. Then there’s Rest in Pieces, which describes itself as a „Card & Block Tower RPG“. Basically hoping to emulate fast, funny and bizarre cartoon action ala Rick & Morty ab. While I am not sure about the mechanics, I didn’t delve to deep into it, it has the looks.
If you prefer your horror more horrific, maybe check out Terrors and Tommyguns. The game combines cosmic horror and the 1920s, along with a d20 rollover system. If you are up for some American Gothic … Horror, check out Flames of Freedom. It throws you into the revolution of 1776 and sees you fighting monsters next to the confederates using the system introduced by Zweihänder. I am intruiged, as they do actually got consultants and try to differ a bit from a „European White“ point of view, which tends to be the usual approach. If you like a quick, one shot rpg, check out Fright Nights: Wendigo RPG. An adventure and RPG all in one little zine, aimed at beginner STs and players alike (next to more experience ones). It is part of an intruiging series. Then there’s the Widdershins RPG, which explores the 1910 setting of Whyborne & Griffins- a queer romance series. While I don’t know the source, it looks like fighting eldritch horror Jane Austen style, something quite fascintating. Check it out.
For people who like SF, maybe take a look at Weirdspace. It offers a scifi sandbox setting with quite some British comedy. You can checkout a free 16-pages prerelease on DTRPG to get a look at the game, and it appears to be a very solid project. Maybe you have wondered what would happen if The Expanse and Doom were combined? Well, Will Power Games answer this scenario in Death Diverse. The lavishly illustrated project offers a fresh 5d6 system and does interest me. If you ever wished for a Stargate SG-1 game, well, you are being served. Explore different worlds via Stargates and meddle in the conflict between Tau’ri and Goa’uld – all with a D&D 5E variant system
Next to those games there are many more intruiging, cool projects. As an avid fan of the World of Darkness I had to back Ghost Hunters for World of Darkness 20th Anniversary. The sourcebooks offers ghost hunters to be used with all WoD x20 gamelines, and might even be seen as kind of a core book. Super cool! Join in! If you are a fan of undead and necromantic things, maybe take a look at the Dungeon Master’s Adventure Pack Issue 5 – Necropolis zine, offering just that. There are intruiging adventures like Ancient Undead Spider Wizard, which will be funded along with a vinyl record, or you could try to understand mistosis (real life one) with the The Great Divide module for D&D 5E. The Snow Cone & Sundae dice for DCC see me strongly tempted. Well, and you could just make your own dice with the Royal Mold System. The card deck Deck of Dungeons from Germany might be worth having a look and I am intruiged by the GAME THEORY IN THE AGE OF CHAOS book project, which takes a rather political lense to game development.
You’ll find these and many, many more intruiging projects here:

I present to you the new Crowdfunding Collection #151, including every tabletop rpg project started between 09/20 and 09/27.

The collection is back to its normal, weekly release and thus offers a short, yet mostly very delightful, list of projects. Enjoy! :)

I will start with the Good Strong Hands RPG, which offers a dark game with whimsical elements. The name is inspired by the heart wrenching scene of the Neverending Story and the setting premise does somewhat follow the book/movie as the players try to save the world of Reverie from the destructive „Void“. Thus the stories focus on friendship, teamwork, dangerous forces and handling a world in crisis. The world of Reverie is created by the players in a group effort, as it is a world of imagination. The system offers gamebooks and a d6 pool system. I feel very tempted to back it, and recommend you take a look. I am as well enticed to back the 2nd edition of Kingdom. The game, by renowned game designer Ben Robbins, has you forming a community ~ well the titular kingdom ~ and explore what happens to it. The concept is cool, and you can be quite sure Ben delivers. Fans of genre pieces like Indiana Jones, the Mummy, Uncharted & co. should have at Broken Compass. The game has already funded, and created an Italian edition, and now its up to get the books out in English. You can check out the quickstart rules, and I do love that the core book is presented in a notebook/journal style book. Which is, why I do consider backing it, while not being that much interested in the genre. Which is cool too. It helps, that the game looks great. If you are looking for a new system, along with settings, you should check out Epic! Game System: Realms of Mana and Stars of Mana. The system is promised to be brand new, and will be available under an OGL like license. Next to that you’ll get a fantasy setting in Realms of Mana and a science fiction sandbox setting in Stars of Mana. A nice project, that does appear to have a lot of work being done at..
The times of corona, might have you looking for another journaling rpg, in which case Down the Old Rail Line has you covered. It’s a small, charming, PDF only game, in which you take a bicycle trip through a fantasy world and note down the foreign landscape and events. Next to being nice, it is at a rather low price bar.
Fans of game books, should check out the Arkham Archives, which explore the works and settings of Lovecraft. The project offers the first part of a five part series. Next to a book, you’ll get a stylish deck of cards, which got me hooked, especially at ‚just‘ 15€. Take a look.
There are other cool projects, like the The Wagadu Chronicles. Next to a nice, isometric afrofantasy MMO, it offers a D&D 5E setting book to go along with it. I did join the nice project from a game dev studio in Berlin (Germany) and recommend you have a look. If you wonder how to put more Dragons into your D&D game, checkout The Cosmic Dragon Breviary: A Draconic Compendium – it gets you a lot of draconic stuff. Though if you up for an adventure, pardon an incursion, for the Trophy RPG, take a look at Alchemy. Then there are Ice Dice, offering you a mold to create ice dice, to keep your drinks cool. The Amazing Fireball Dice on the other hand ain’t to hot to game, and look great. There is a deck of card like the Itemancy Cards for D&D or a soundscapelike Winter RPG Adventure.
You find these, and many, many more projects, in this list:

I present to you the new Crowdfunding Collection #150, including every tabletop rpg project started between 08/31 and 09/20.

Following some personal challenges and the godawfulm bad new WordPress editor, I am back with none fewer than round about 100 new rpg projects. Let’s get to them.

I personally took a fancy to the game Brinkwood: The Blood of Tyrants. The game puts you in the role of human hunters, who with the help of Fae, take actions against undead, vampiric tyrants who are a blight upon humanity. The castlepunk setting is intruiging and I do like the Forged in the Dark system, which is why I backed the project enthusiastically. Take a look for yourself. If you like to design the setting you’ll be playing in yourself, you might want to check out The BOLT RPG. Upon backing the project, you’ll be getting access to a prelimary version of the rules. The Best Left Buried rules light rpg offers a preset fantasy horror game, with rules that seem rather unobstrusive. Maybe you are interested in the American Revolutionary War, and having an OSR game set in it? In this case Freedom Flag should be right up your ally whereas Laser Ponies offers a fun game for the whole family.
There are as well some games, with rather contemplative topics, for example Hero Too: Super Edition. Which addresses messy trans experience with an added challenge by being superhero powered. It uses the ARMOR system. Providing a solo-game experience in which you do some journaling. Sounds cool & I would recommend having a look as it needs more support. Epitaph on the otherhand is a GM-less game that explores the life of a person after they passed on. Which is as intruiging a topic, as it is ~ in my opinion, somewhat heavy. I still recommend having a look.
There are of course quite some fantasy ttrpgs as well. For example the 3rd edition of Open Quests, which offers an update to the d100 system game. Then there is Darkest Days, which took the radical-Christian comics as inspiration to create the game, that tries to spread ttrpg as much as possible. Cool. If you like a d20 game, check out Fires of Athelen. It highlights the realistic system based around locations and a cool approach to sorcery. Next to looking nicely. Fans of Monte Cook should check out the Diamond Throne RPG. It provides you with the titular setting and realizes it with the Cypher System. Then there’s .dungeon, which bridges science fiction and fantasy by offering a Shinsekai setting. Thus you play in a fantasy world of an MMO – essentially a setting within a setting.
Thus, bridging over to SciFi games, Light Strikers is a game inspired by anima and Saturday morning cartoons. I feel that Heavenscape: Exordia sports a similar colorful universe, or rather multiverse, despite the project being black and white. It does use „normal“ dice from d4 up to d100. The same as the ttrpg Planetbound does, which calls its system EDGE (Every Dice Gets Exercise). The characters end up stranded on one planet, coming from various universes. It looks interesting, and is funded, just take a look.
If you like cardbased games, check out Wretched. The game in zine form, has a science fiction setting, and appears to be somewhat close to the horror of Alien and similar works. Then there’s Parselings, a setting that combines near future with fantasy element. It has an interesting presentation and while it is played with cards, the GM might roll dice. Last but not least there is Atma, a card based rpg in a box, which offers fun 2 hour sessions. From the looks of it, it combines superhero elements with near future aspects.
Then there are some games that are either hybrids or storygames, that I still think do fit. Like The Sickened, in which you curse people with illnesses and try to save your own. FUTURES is a storybased, narrative game about imagining a better, well, future. Then there’s Everbane, a card game with some rpg elements.
There are of course plenty more noteworthy elements, like the Into the Dark zine with a lot of tipps and advice. Scion: Demigod does offer a 3rd setting for the Scion universe, in which the player play half gods on their way to full godlyness. There are really cool sets like the Fancy Pride Stone Dice or the Handcrafted Sharp Edged Dice. The Spellbound GM Screen looks really fancy, and I could not resist the Reckless Deck: PSYCHE set of cards. They are a brilliant tool for (N)PC creation, and I highly recommend the project. There are nice notebooks like the Refillable Leather Notebooks For Gamers & Geeks and soundscape for Vampire and Victorian Gothic Horror.
You’ll find these, and many, many more here:

I present to you the new Crowdfunding Collection #147, including every tabletop rpg project started between 07/26 and 08/09.

Back after two weeks and admist a summerly heatwave, I can report that there are about 69 projects started, which I like to present to you in this collection.

Let’s get started with XII: Inner Demons, an urban fantasy rpg, in which the players set out to prevent an apocalypse due to happen in twelve days by the arrival of an arch demon. The game looks nice and presents a setting made for small campaigns with a distinct ending. I recommend checking the playtest at DTRPG and having a look. If you are a fan of time travelling Science Fiction, with open campaigns, check out Zoetrope. The game by Dane Asmunds is fully card based, which means you’ll use the cards instead of dice and for describing your character. I backed Moth Children from him and do recommend having a look at this project. Travelling back in time to the glorious 70s to 80s you might like to check out Glam Metal Monster Hunter. The micro RPG zine offers a game about Neon Knights and Denim demons and uses a small d6 based system. Cute. Another cute concept offers Magic School Mystery, basically all about juveline adventures at the titular magic school. A somewhat magical school is as well the setting of Preparing for Paris. A game in which you will play personified sports, going through some high school drama while trying to qualify themselves for the Paris olympics. Which does sound fun and neu.
Wanderhome at the otherhand is a pastoral fantasy game about travelling animal folk. The serene game about travelling through various seasons, uses an unique game engine inspired by No Dice, No Masters. The designer, Jay Dragon, has Kickstarter and RPG design experience with Sleepaway and I would recommend having a look at Wanderhome. The Dames of Asstoria offers a more traditional RPG game. You’ll be playing girl monsters on their adventures. The adventures aim at being PG-13 and using a d100 system. An even more traditional game is The Majestic Fantasy RPG. You can use it as a standalone system, or as an sourcebook for Sword and Sorcery.
The game Cthulhu Parlour’s „Hotel Lovecraft“ mixes roleplaying game, boardgame and gamebook elements with some theater elements. It thus can’t be called a straight up rpg, but I think it is an interesting project. You’ll find that Vampire: The Masquerade Rivals isn’t a rpg at all, but an expandable card game based on the prominent ttrpg IP. I think it is super cool, backed it and do recommend that you check it out.
There are many more cool projects, like the Svilland setting for D&D 5E, the sourcebook Guide to Kroma for traveling in games or the Chewer of Fingers adventures. There are the beautiful Koi-waii Dice and the newest Elder Dice: Shards of Illumination project. You’ll find the Dark Art Book and Cards ~ tarot cards ~ along with an interpretation aid for D&D and the fluffly Tiny RPG Universe Plushies.
