I present to you the new Crowdfunding Collection #170, including every tabletop rpg project started between 05/23 and 05/30.

This week the there are a nice, interesting projects, to which I’ll get to now, without much ado.

I’ll stat with this world is not yours: an RPG zine. It’s a small, as the title says zine-sized, game for one to two players. It explores the topic of generations, changes and what one leaves behind. The narrative system is inspired by games like Microscope. I do consider the topic quite interesting, and hence recommend that you have a look. Fans of the cyberpunk genre should have a look at UNDER NEON. The game offers quite an interesting system for character generation, where everyone starts out the same. Along with a more traditional d20 system. I do consider the idea quite interesting, and the project looks nice.
Among the (urban) fantasy games Exalted: Essence by Onyx Path Publishing is a project worth considering, imho. The game offers a streamlined version of the 3rd edition, and basically combines and condenses quite some sourcebooks into 250+ pages. Have I had more money, were the shipping not as expensive, and the delivery in 2023, I’d be totally in. As is, I will wait for the book to hit my FLGS. If you are looking for some lighthearted urban fantasy, Fae’s Anatomy should have you covered. The game about melodramatic medical mysteries is about treating fantasy creatures with rather bizarre ailments. The system utilizes narrative focused rules inspired by Fiasco and Hillfolks, and the game is clearly inspired by series E.R., Greys Anatomy and more. I think it’s a quite cool project, worth considering. If you yearn for post-apocalyptic urban fantasy Graywalkers Purgatory has you covered. You will battle the supernatural creatures and horrors with guns, magic, katanas, bones and stuff. The project offers a quickstart, to get a look at the system and setting, and you may choose from two systems. One D&D 5E inspired, and one called Weavemaster (3d10 based). It does look nice.
If you like gamebooks, The Isle of Torment offers quite a massive experience. There are more than 2000 descision and the char sheet looks cool. If you like swashbuckling fantasy, take a look.
There are of course more projects. Like the Knock! Issue Two compendium, with a ton of stuff for OSR gamers, or FISK BORG and Galgenbeck After Dark which got MÖRK BORG fans covered. I do like the White Whale in Dice and the Dice Sculptor: Custom Designed Dice appears to me as an interesting thing.
You’ll find those projects, and more, in this collection:

I present to you the new Crowdfunding Collection #169, including every tabletop rpg project started between 05/16 and 05/23.

I hope you enjoy the Whitsun holidays, if you are celebrating or get the monday off. The week saw a nice number of very cool crowdfundings being launched, who’ll you find in this collection.

Let’s start with Into the Motherland, a science fiction roleplaying game, set in an afrofuturist world. The design of the world, and variation of cultures ones character can be from, looks quite cool, and once you’ve backed it you will get a look upon the rules with the quickstarter of the game. The creators appeared competent in their presentation, and I recognize BD Walters as well as That Bronze Girl from various VtM Actual Plays. All this to say, I do have faith in the team. Check the project out! I’ve flagged it for later evaluation, whether or not I can squeeze it into my budget. Something the game has in common with Somniauts. In this game, the character will unravel mysteries by using weird science to delve deep into dreams. The rules are available on the games website, and are influenced by games like The White Hack and The Black Hack. I do like the illustrations, which reference the dreamscapes of Dali, Escher and Moebius. Thus I do recommend checking the game, and supporting it. Knock-Down Drag-Out, at the other hand, is a rather „down to earth“ game, set in the „Country Noir“ genre as introduced by works like Ozark or Winter’s Bone and others. I like the illustration, and the rulelite game system has a card based mechanic for chases, which apears to be cool. Check it out, if the genre speak to you. To raise up the mood, let’s take a look at The Awfully Cheerful Engine: An RPG of Action Comedy! project, The game is set to emulate 80s games, and thus offers pulp action from Indiana Jones, to Urban Fantasy and onto Spaaaace. Basically everything from Danger Mouse up to Rick & Morty. The system is a ruleslight d6 pool system, that sports 4 attributes. The character creation can be experienced with their website and is fun. While I am not really a fan of the genre, the project enticed me to consider it – if I had the cash for it. Then there’s the superheroe game Good Guys Finish Last by Postworldgames Jim Pinto. Well, the revival of the existing game. While I am not a fan of the genre, or the title, it looks good and I trust Jim Pinto to deliver, based on my experience with his other projects. Thus it might be well worth having a look.
If you are a fan of Horror, you should check out Collector. The micro rpg offers a post-apocalyptic setting, in which the characters try to get enough gold, to pay the goddess Ubato of the Black River, to escape the limbo into the beyond. The game is designed to work as a „gateway“ game to entice casual players of the gritty campaign and get them hooked. The structue and mock up of the game looks fine, the 2d6 based system fast. I am tempted and recommend it. Then there’s A Shape in the Dark. The game offers to experience horror stories akin to those shared at campfires, and aims to attract people to play, who weren’t previously interested. I like the idea, and quite a bit of the design, but won’t watch the Actual Play to see it’s system.
Of course there are more cool projects. Most notable, at least to my interests The Story Engine: Deck of Worlds. A set of cards meant to enable players and game masters to create worlds and settings at a moments notice. I loved, backed and rejoiced in the final delivery of the previous Story Engine project. While I might have to back out, purely because of budget reasons, I wholeheartedly recommend the project. There’s a project to fund the Ludonarrative Dissidents podcasts. Which will be hosted by Ross Payton, Greg Stolze and James Wallis. An interesting combination. Then there’s LEDGES, basically things you can hang onto your GM screen, to have a kind of shelf, which looks rather cool.
You’ll find those projects, and quite some more, in this collection:

I present to you the new Crowdfunding Collection #168, including every tabletop rpg project started between 05/02 and 05/16.

Following a brief break last week, where I didn’t manage to finalise the collection, I am back. There are no fewer than 17 games and 1 VtM project. So, let’s get to them!

I’ll start with Crescent: Nautical Fantasy TTRPG, a game focusing on an ever expanding, large archipelago. They are waiting to be mapped, explored and the players will engage with mysterious magics on the various islands. The game will be virtually supported, and the core rules be available for everyone for free – if the project is funded. I am fascinated by the maritime setting, the illustrations look nice (save, maybe the thumbnail) and the system seems solid. I recommend you take a look. Broken Compass is somewhat maritime as well, yet leans more into the pulp aspect, exploring and plundering ancient ruines and stuff. The game was previously funded in 2020 and delivered. The project offers an opportunity to get your hands on the beautiful book and adds two new campaigns. The Deittman Files aren’t as watery. You’ll be playing a group of investigators and psychics venturing onto ghost hunts being supported by the Powered by the Apocalypse. I like the idea of ghost hunting, and I like PbtA, thus it gets a hearty recommendation. Then there’s The Morra Cinematic Game System by Mighty Narwhal Production. The game enables you, and your friends, to setup scenarios akin to Hollywood movies as well as TV series. Whether it’s about original settings like punching Nazis, encountering Cthulhu as a person interesting in magic with a magic school, or drama along works like Supernatural, Guardians of the Galaxy and more. The game system is interesting, and the game features an extra system to make sure boundaries are respected and everyone is having fun. I do know and trust the creators, and recommend you check out the game.
Magical Kitties Level Up! is the game to open the fantasy category. It has you playing the titular, fluffy, magical kittens, who venture into adventures. Family friendly ones, thus it isn’t of the „dark & gritty“ variety. I personally was charmed at the term „kitty“, though the other aspect do entice me too. I would be in, if it were within my budget. Ataraxia Legends is a game inspired by (classic) J-RPGs. The system is only briefly adressed, but shows the JRPG inspiration. While I consider the presentation a bit lacking, you might enjoy it, especially if you are into JRPGs.
Among the horror games I am quite fascinated by Broken Tales. It offers a dark view upon classical fairy tails and put those upside down. With aspects like villains seeking redemption. Systemwise the game is d6 based and offers various modi like one for OneShots or guided campaigns and one for chronicles. Another project I would back, have I had the resources. Nowhereville is another d6 based horror game. The characters are trapped within a city, they can’t leave. Which gives the game a Stephen King like vibe. The game is very much to the point, offering just one pledge level. Check it out. Then there is Into the Wyrd and Wild, which explores the horror or venturing into an unpleasant wilderness. The book offers a system neutral setting, which might be played with D&D style rules. Though I think, you might not need D&D? Anyway, I like the project and recommend you have a look. Last but not least, there is They Stirred. It’s set in an post-apocalyptic setting with zombies. It might be ambigious to place it in the horror section, yet givven that the narrative game focuses on hard choices, that’s where I placed it. It has a nice presentation.
Let’s continue to the Cyberpunk games. Necrobiotic would have fitted a post-apo or horror category. Yet the transhuman idea of playing mechanically altered dead people, who are now not that dead, but still scurry around, with more intelligence than a zombie, makes it a good fit. I do like that it’s card based, that they offer a quickstart, the illustrations, and would be in, if I had no restrictions. Favor is a more classic Cyberpunk setting and game, featuring a „neo noir“ look and feel. You’ll be playing a bunch of criminals, who try to do gigs, to get their hands on new chrome and stuff. As a bit of a twist, it isn’t set on earth, but a colonized planet. Yet still, you can’t play bog standard humans, but got the choice of interesting „Anthroforms“. The d10 based system appears to be a good fit, and I recoomend the project. an. You will find another cyberpunk game in Augmented. Though given that you’ll play goons, who’ll do the companies, who own ‚em, dirty work it is notably more cyber than punk. The system is so ruleslite, that the char sheet got no stats. It is quite an interesting angle.
If you like Science Fiction, you should have a look at Once More Into The Void. You play a troupe, a family, who after breaking up has to get together one last time, to get a job done. The system is inspired by the one in Mobile Frame Zero: Firebrands, which means it is gm-less and consists of 9 interlinked minigames, that will create a story. Quite an interesting project. The Crushing Thunder! is another scifi game, set in a post apocalyptic world, in which you have to life with emental dinos, which you might battle with your mech suites and stuff. The system is 3d6 based, and the whole projects appears to have been done with quite some heart.
You’ll find a quite fascinating journaling game in You Are the Dungeon. As the title indicates, that you will play as a dungeon. Which has to handle adventures, rummaging around in your inners. You can guide them, trick them and maybe reward them. The game uses a tarot deck for conflict resultion, and I am intruiged by the concept. Mythara LARP on the other hand, is a card based and D&D inspired core book for Larping. The rules are available for free and the game might be intruiging for fantasy fans.
There are other interesting projects, though considering I already wrote a lot, I will keep it to one. Vampire: the Eternal Struggle Unleashed offers to print 4 decks, which offers cards that haven’t been printed previously (they were only available as pdf)! You can get the new V5 starter box and more decks along with the new one to. Well, and I am in, because I can get some fresh V:TES Giovanni, of clan Giovanni, before they are „reduced“ to being Hecata. Take a look, consider it. If you are from Germany, there is a „collective pledge„, that will get you at least 10% off the decks. I do admit it is an ECG, and thus not very ttrpg’ly, but the link to VtM have had me include it.
You’ll find those projects, and many more, here:

I present to you the new Crowdfunding Collection #166, including every tabletop rpg project started between 04/18 and 04/25.

Let’s start with Legacy of the Soul Flame. The game presents an epic fantasy setting, in which the undead won. With a focus on those undead, snow & ice, exploration and bloodties. In a world that unites old technology and magic. The 420 pages strong book is already written, and will ship via DTRPG PoD. The d6 based system has been used in Astulae before and got improved. Plus, the setting can be used in other games. It looks cool and like its sure to deliver, check it out. Then there is the Modern 5E core book, which offers exactly what the name promises. A contemporary setting and rules within the D&D 5E framework. With illustrationen by Larry Elmore. I am somewhat surprised, it hasn’t funded yet, and will keep an eye on it.
Fans of Space Operas are in for two treats. On the one hand, there is Swords And Spaceships. Next to the normal array of various, creative races next to humans, the setting includes weapons, body modifications and the option to customize ones ship. The system is d100 based, and spices it up with a FATE inspired mechanics for modifying conditions. On the other hand, there is Tangent Space. Which does as well offer a great variety of races and setting appropriate elements. The system is based on dice, that scale along the abilities of the character. It does look sympathetic.
If you like game books, check out the project A Warriors Quest. It kickstarters a number of books, set in the world of Elvyon. They are already exist in French, and the whole project appears worth checking out.
Next there are many other cool projects. Like Sirens: Battle of the Bards, a D&D 5E setting with and by Satine Phoenix, or the D&D 5E sourcebook Into the Feywild, which fascinates me as a player who more often than not plays druids. Then there are nice dice projects like the Handmade Resin DND Dice Sets, the glow in the dark Fluorescent Dice or the strangely designedNEW VTB DICE.
You’ll find these, and more cool projects, here:

I present to you the new Crowdfunding Collection #165, including every tabletop rpg project started between 04/11 and 04/18.

Let’s start with having a look at Orbital Blues. A roleplaying game, in which you play Space Cowboys, similar as in Cowboy Bebop. Which is one of the inspirations next to Guardians of the Galaxy and Firefly. The narrative, rules-lite system is d6 based, with about five important core stats. Next to that the game comes with a casette, and thus a soundtrack, which is available via Spotify (for free) too. I think it’s a very cool, and I am tempted to back it. If you are intothe Symbaroum setting, yet would like to play it with D&D 5E style rules, the Ruins of Symbaroum project from Free League has you covered. A more than solid project from an experienced project from my point of view. Jamie Noble´s Masquerade is more of an immersive theatre, rather larp-y, experience, with a card based system. In the end, I decided it looks roleplayingly and solid enough to warrant an inclusion. The last game to mention is HAWTHORN, an horror RPG. It offers detective-style horror inspired by cthulhoid horrors. You can checkout the quickstarter at DTRPG.
Among the other projects, you’ll find the Comets & Cockpits setting for D&D 5E. Fantasy City Sites and Scenes III offers stuff to create locations for your random fantasy game, while the Tavern Tales offers, well, taverns, for D&D 5E. In regards of the dice, I like the Purryhedrals, transparent dice with little dice figurines in them.
You’ll find these, and other projects, over here:

I present to you the new Crowdfunding Collection #164, including every tabletop rpg project started between 04/04 and 04/11.

The collection is back to it’s regular schedule at covering a week. Still there are 11 fresh games being kickstartered. Let’s get to them.

First there is Devil Dice Island, a small Powered by the Apocalypse game. The protagonists, each with some skeletons in their closet, strand upon a creepy island, where they’ll eventually die. I imagine it’s a bit like Lost, just without being dragged out into oblivion and a rather divisive six season. Next to that I know the designer, consider him a friend, a dp think that the project can be trusted to deliver. Check it out. If you are looking for a game for the whole family, there is Adventure Builder, which is presented in a quite colorful box. The introducation video highlights an accessible system, the option to have the game be education, and the whole thing looks quite splendid to me.
The game First They Came is definitely not for kids, yet quite intruiging. The ttrpg is available in English and Italian, and is played blindfolded, with three to five players, and an interactive soundtrack. Storywise it’s set in Berlin about 1942 and the characters appear to be hiding out to not get caught by the regime. While the topic is quite heavy, the presentation looks solid and the mechanic is quite unique. I am not sure if I would play it, but it is for worth having a look and considering it. The card based storytelling Partners is way more light weight. It puts two players, and just two players, in the role of a classic buddy/cop duo, with one straight and one rash person, and has them solve crimes and other mysteries. Another game that looks quite solid.
We Die Young RPG is a game about supernatural beings in the (19)90s,…. and had me hooked pretty much with the short text. Even as I realized that my 90s – I am born in 80’s – are to contemporary teens and tweens what the 60s and 70s are to me. Any way, the illustrations are on point, it’s a rare case in which I like the creature mix (zoo approach) and the OSR-inspired system appears fool prove. The whole thing is already written, and I am in. Another OSe influenced is The Bleakness. A horror ttrpg, in which you’ll be traveling into the snowy, and titularly bleak, Norths. In which you don’t only have to survive, but as well face various unsettling creatures. I gave it a star, for future notice, and recommend it. Rangers of the Midden Vale is another OSR inspired game, with some storytelling game influences, in which you explore a wilderniss and protect the innocent. It’s less gritty and more fantasy, yet sounds cool to. THETA is the last of the kinda OSR/OSE inspired games. It offers a quite unique setting, that combines Fantasy & SciFi elements and looks solid.
The Science Fiction rpgs are spearheaded by the new edition of Blue Planet: Recontact. A hard science fiction game about existing in a waterworld. It appears to be lavishly illustrated, and a 80-pages quickstart offers more details. I consider it worth having a look. If you are looking for a Science Fantasy setting, the Arkelon Chronicles might have you covered. The setting reminds me of Starfinder, and the system, in which both player and GM each roll a d20 to determine the success of an action, looks interesting. Though the corebook is quite a tome, with it’s 600 pages.
Last but not least, if you are up for a solo game, The Broken Cask has you running an inn. Housing patrons, sending out adventures and other stuff. It looks neat, and I got it flagged for later consideration. Check it out.
There are of course more projects. Like the Troika sourcebooks A Bug’s Guide th the Shimmer and Academies of the Arcane. The Venture Maidens Campaign Guide for D&D 5E intruiges me, whereas Mörk Borg fans might like to check out the LORD adventure.
You’ll find these, and more projects in the collection:

I present to you the new Crowdfunding Collection #163, including every tabletop rpg project started between 14/03 and 04/04.

Following a brief hiatus, thanks to a broken ellbow, the collection is back with about 119 projects. Thus, let’s get to ‚em.

The first in the list is Solemn Vale. A folk horror game by Mark Kelly, inspired by works like Witchfinder General, Blood on Satan’s Claw and The Wicker man. The system features attribute based dice pools and includes a betting mechanic to facilitate the narrative. You’ll find that Justin Achilli is listed as one of the authors, and thus, over all, I am very tempted to back it. If you are looking for Indiana Jones style adventures in the Trinityverse, you have to check out Trinity Continuum: Adventure!, the newest edition by Onyx Path Publishing, that does utilize theor Storypath System. Fans of superheroes should have a look at Pandora: Total Destruction. A game that does spice it up by adding a dose of Akira. You might checkout the system with the preview version of the game at DTRPG, and it is described as being narrative first. Then there’s Tales of Teralecia, a D&D based game, with a Steampunk / SciFantasy setting. It offers some videos (and a QR code?) for further insight. Tho it ain’t my cup of tea.
Fans of Science Fiction, especially the gritty kind, should check out Death in Space. The rules light systrem is OSR inspired and the characters will explore the gritty vastness of space. The presentation seems solid, As does the site of the Dark Energy RPG. The world is based on the novels by the same name, and the SciFantasy mix invokes Shadowrun to my mind’s eye theatre. The system allows to focuses on heroes and villains, which sounds interesting. Then there’s Rising Shadows, which likewise aspires up to be cyberpunk. Though the text based description couldn’t keep ne interested. At least the thumbnail looks nice.
If you are a fan of fantasy, I’d recommend having a look at Goblin Country. The zine sized, gm-less game imagines you to be adventures goblins, who don’t appear as fooling as in other games but rather cute. Then there’s Ageless Chronicles, which features an online platform to facilitare the game. With the special feature being that you’ll be drawing the map as you play. Fascinating. Spears & Spells appears to be a classic, OSR like fantasy rpg, that only uses d6. Though the „flexible funding“ nature of the project does raise my alarm senses. Back at own discretion. The Eldritch RPG doesn’t have such a thing but appears to be normal. The system is developed to be versatile and epic and it should work for one shots and campaigns. Looks solid. Last but not least there is the War and Aether RPG. It is inspired by D&D, but features a classless system, that’s based on skills, and offers a brutal, realistic combat.
If you prefer your fantasy anime style, Anime 5E is a must. Instead of being another D&D 5E clone, it’s BESM (Big Eyes, Small Mouth) in fantasy mode. Which I would check out, were I more interested in fantasy. Another anime inspired game is the LokDown TTRPG, featuring a SciFantasy facilitated by the Tri-Forge.
In regards of the narrative rpgs, I like to feature Fly Softly. Inspired by the flight of the Monarchs, the game sees you playing as a human/butterfly hybrid, who journeys from Virigina, US to Mexico. On your travel you’ll be helping humans, ghost, mutants and other creatures. The whole presentation has me under a spell, and I am very likely to back it. If you are looking to back not only one, but six games, with one pledge, Possible Worlds has you covered. It offers a subscription services, that will run over the course of 6 months, bringing you one zine sized game each time. The games look interesting, and I got it marked to maybe pledge later. The Protocol Squared game by Jim Pinto is the most recent entry to the gm-less Protocil System family. You’ll be playing as soldiers, who return home, after a devastating fight. While the standard setting is a fantasy one, it might be adapted to portray historic wars. Another game addressing the blight of soldiers is Love & Barbed Wire. Set during World War I, the game has two players writing letters back and forth. Using a card based system. The whole presentation looks intruiging, despite the heavy topic. Then there’s Symposium. It’s a conversational game about posing philosophical questions, and answering them, according to some rules. It might stretch the definition of roleplaying game, but I feel it warrents being included.
If you like to back a solo game, there’s Rad Zone. A game in which you try to survive in an apocalypse. The presentation looks very solid and I think it’s worth considering.
In regards to gamebook you might back Legendary Kingdoms – Crown & Tower or Defenders: Throne of the Bandit Lord, maybe both. They look good.
Among the many, many other projects I decided to back the Fatum, Dark Myths character creator deck. The design of the cards is nice, and the presentation how you build your character or draw inspiration, looks easy enough that I may actually use it. Though the playmat thing does help. Thus I recommend you check it out too.
You’ll find these, and many, many more exciting, interesting and worthy projects in the collection:

I present to you the new Crowdfunding Zine Collection #161, including every tabletop rpg project started between 02/15 and 03/03.

This collection contains about 82 ZineQuest projects, which is completed by 76 „normal“ crowdunding projects.
As the collection spans a bit more than two weeks, some projects have ended. You’ll find the ended projects at the end of the list. Considering the many projects, I only highlight those I backed or marked for consideration.

In regards of the ZineQuest, I would like to highlight and recommend the work by Emily McGlawn. She collected all ZineQuest projects from marginalised folks into one google document. Which offers the added information, which of these projects funded, and which didn’t.

I personally find the psychedelic artwork of Aether Operations RPG intruiging, and hence marked it for future considerations. Then there’s Little Katy’s Tea Party, a game about helping a girl to grow up. I like the „Alice in Wonderland“ look, and thus might go down that rabbit hole. Focusing on boys and mans, I actually backed BLOOD FEUD. A game all about vikings and toxic masculinity. A quite interesting topic. As quite some contrast, I might chip into Necrojerks. The players take the role of said jerks, some undead one, and do their evil bidings. The illustration of Contemplation got me contemplating whether or not to back the zine,.. which is usuable as a solo game, micro rpg or NPC design aide. Last but not least I backed DM Yourselves, which promises help in regards to turn any adventure into a solo experience to enjoy. You’ll find these, and many more projects in here::

I present to you the new Crowdfunding Collection #161, including every tabletop rpg project started between 02/15 and 03/03.

This collection contains about 76 „normal“ projects, which is completed by 82 ZineQuest projects.
As the collection spans a bit more than two weeks, some projects have ended. You’ll find the ended projects at the end of the list of English projects.

In regards of the ZineQuest, I would like to highlight and recommend the work by Emily McGlawn. She collected all ZineQuest projects from marginalised folks into one google document. Which offers the added information, which of these projects funded, and which didn’t.

I would like to start with Coyote & Crow. The setting offer a vision of America in which the native haven’t been colonized, and places the players into a near future scifi scenario with fantasy elements. The game is build upon a d12 system and looks cool. Added that the game is actually designed by a team of native american designers, I was very likely to back it. As there is no shipment option for Germany, I might pick it up from a FLGS in the future. If you take alook at the Universe Ball Anthology you’ll find two scifi roleplaying games, who take a comedic approach inspired by works like „Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy“ and „Doctor Who“ among other. I like the look and recommend checking it out. Then there’s Vessel, which mixes scifi and fantasy. You can take a look at the alpha and beta editions of the game, and if financed, the game PDF will be available for free.
I headed the more general category with DIESE, as I do enjoy the artwork. The game offers a mix of cyberpunk and western, and it utillizes a d6 based system. The fantasy setting of Greyplains, a OSR game that aims to be enjoyable for 5E enthusiasts, offering diverse mechanics and fast combat. I got „Dark Souls vibes“ from it, and hence think it’s worth checking out. If you got kids, maybe take a look at Crafty Quest Box. It’s a rpg that has quite some crafting elements addressed to childrend, and looks like it is fun. Maybe you are looking for a more mature theme like modern warfare. In which case you might take interest into the second edition of the Ghost Ops: Second Strike game.
Then there is the very small game Adventure Coasters, which utilizes coasters for dungeon creators, and if you like to check out a solo game, take a look at the Journeys: Dungeon Descent RPG.
I personally backed the LARP script for Just a Little Lovin‘. A game set in San Francisco during the AIDS crisis. I heard only positive stuff during my attendeces on conferences, and hence jumped in. Though I am hesitant to stay in, as the shipping is kind of harsh – if you can’t pick it up. Next to that, you’ll find that Make A Scene Larp Anthologies offers an interesting selection of scripts, worth checking out.
I did back the sourcebook Victorian Mage for the 20th anniversary edition of Mage: The Ascension. I am a fan of the WoD, I was genuinely surprised when I found the project, and the book looks rad. I am still pondering whether or not to back Remarkable Cults & Their Followers – GM Guide for Any RPG. While it might be more focused on fantasy, than VtM appropriate urban fantasy, it does looks quite interesting.
There are many more projects, like the Gelatinous Cat Plushie. You find these and more here:
