I present to you the new Crowdfunding Collection #73, including every tabletop project started between 03.25 and 04.08.

In regards of the foreign language projects, you might notice that I added quite a lot Portugese projects to the list, because I found the Catarse platform. I am most fascinated by Áureos, a game about Capoeira fighters. I do like the Spanish 1800: El Ocaso de la Humanidad project as well as the Swedish Neotech Edge. The latter might even get an English translation in the long run.
As for the German games, I do gladly support the translation of Dread by System Matters. I am as well intruiged to play a gamebook by, traditional, mail as Schwarzkalten suggests.

Though the core and bulk of this collection, as usual, are still the English games.
I am most intruiged and did back Familiars of Terra. On the one hand because it features quite a lot of cute pets, on the other hand I am intruiged by the system which took notes from PbtA and Blades in the Dark. In regards of Story games you might like to check out The King is Dead, all about the succession of a kingdom, by Vincent and Meguey Baker. Well, or take a look at Wingless. A Powered by the Apocalypse game about angels.
Uprising shouldn’t go without a mention either. It is a game featuring the Fate system whose setting forms from social deduction games The Resistance, Coup, and One Night Revolution. Well, and as we are already in the dark future, maybe take a look at Battlecruiser Alamo RPG. The newest game in the era gameline.
Next to those classical tabletop rpgs I am quite fascinated by the Graphic Novel Adventures gamebook or lets say comicbook. I do like the concept and the realization and artstyle looks cool, I am on the verge of backing.
Fans of Torg should take a look at the Torg: Eternity supplement, while those who are into Exalted 3rd Edition might take interest in the Dragon-Blooded project by Onyx Path.
There are plenty more projects. The very cute Wee Beasties children book, the helpful Backstory Cards, the Metaphor Dice and plenty of projects more., notebooks, dice, pins etc… take a look:

I present to you the new Crowdfunding Collection #72 – Part 3 of 3, including every tabletop project started between 03.05 and 03.25.

Thanks to the sheer amount of projects started within the past three weeks, I decided to split the collection into three parts. This part does contains the other half of all the English projects.

In regards to the games I am swayed by Gears of Defiance on the one hand. The d6 system as explained presents an interesting angle to the rather „normal“ steampunk setting, as does the focus upon oppression, family bond and revolution. Given both aspects I decided to back it and recommend a look.
On the other hand there is Imp of the Perverse. A story game inspired by the short story of Edgar Allen Poe. The characters face possession of the titular Imp, who tries to pervert their very being by the offer of power. Transforming them into monsters should it succeed. The characters are not only out to rid themselves of their imp, but to protect society from monsters who fell victim to their vices. The conflict is set in the Jacksonian era of American Gothic. Well and the whole project is something I couldn’t resist backing.
Another interesting game is Dragons Conquer America. Which returned in a second attempt of funding the awesome looking game about the struggle for the Americas – with Dragons! It’s vibrant, colorful, designed with expertise and care and I do really like the project. I supported the previous one, and am currently trying to squeez it into my budget.
Fans of Savage Worlds can look to Savage Tokusatsu to get a game full of Mecha & Kajiu action or to enjoy hunting dinos with The Dinosaur Protocol.
Slayer’s Frontier offers a colorful game that looks like a mix of Slayers – the Anime – and Monster Hunter – the Japanese video game – yet being flexible funding on IndieGoGo sees my interest plummeting. If you rather like Sword & Sorcery you might like to take a look at Heroic Tales of Aglaeca.
In regards of the dice, I do like the design of the Elder Dice and the The Dice Pen looks like a cool idea. Then there is Hermetica – A Library of Occult Symbols, which offers an interesting typefont filled with occult symbols. Well, and if your a fan of D&D 5E, PFRPG or Starfinder you’ll find loads of supplements and adventures.
Next to many more cool projects, just take a look:

I present to you the new Crowdfunding Collection #72 – Part 2 of 3, including every tabletop project started between 03.05 and 03.25.

Thanks to the sheer amount of projects started within the past three weeks, I decided to split the collection into three parts. This part does contain roughly half of all the English projects.

Cartel by Mark Diaz Truman is my current favorite crowdfunding project. The powered by the apocalypse game does place the player characters in Durango, Mexiko where they are engulfed in the machinations of the Sinaloa Cartel. I do took interest in the game ever since I heard about if in 2016, read the Ashcan edition as well as am doing my best to follow the information and discussion. So far I am absolutely convinced of the quality, playability of the game as well as of Marks capability to deliver. Two aspects, among many, that do endear the game to me are, that it is written with a profound knowledge of the culture, and that it offers a different take on the organized crime tabletop rpg genre as you are less busy trying to play a gang that advances through the structure but people who got to handle all the mess that cartel involvement (and their own actions) does subject them to. You can check out the project page, the free Quickstart or one of the many actual plays provided.  While I do usually not include playing cards projects, I couldn’t help but find The Ode To La Catrina really befitting and beautiful, and hence would recommend it alongside Cartel.
If you do prefer another take on crime and gangsters, take a look at Capers. Which sees you assuming the roles of gangsters in the roaring 20s, yet with the twist of superpowers. It looks like a fun settings, offers a neat card based mechanic and I did back as well as recommend it.
Another game I backed is Flying Circus. A PbtA-Game set in a slightly different world during the ~20s to 40s, in which the world wars didn’t happen but some apocalypse did. You’ll assume the roll of daring, dashing pilots fighting a good fight or so. The main feature of the game, for me, is it’s cool air combat mechanic, that did see me convinced.
If you like dog fights and dieselpunk, look no further than Fuel Priest. Which offers airborne action in a dieselpunk setting. The game will give the players agency to design the setting and offers a rather story oriented system. I am intrigued and got the project starred for future notice. Well, and last but not least, Irradiated offers a colorful, post-apocalyptic setting with a Quickstarter available.
Among the supplements you’ll find a re-print of the „to cute to be true“ (but actually true) Baby Bestiary and in regards of the campaigns I took quite some interest in Emissary Lost for Coriolis, specially with all the translations going on and as I backed the KS for the main projects.
Next to those I felt tempted by the Gametee: Finest Leather Notebooks, alas if I had more money. The Demon Sigil Pins are quite cool as well and I imagine the Glow Battle things might be impressive in Boffer fights (for a Cyberpunk campaign).
Next to those there are many more cool projects, like There and Back Again: An Anthology of Travel and Gaming, which I really do hope will fund as I enjoy tabletop and larp rpg related traveling a lot. Just take a look:

I present to you the new Crowdfunding Collection #72 – Part 1 of 3, including every tabletop project started between 03.05 and 03.25.

Thanks to the sheer amount of projects started within the past three weeks, I decided to split the collection into three parts. This part does contain all projects in German or from Germany as well as all projects in either French or Spanish.

In regards of the German projects am strongly in favor of the translation of Coriolis by the publisher Uhrwerk. I got the English edition and am looking forward to the localized one, specially considering that Uhrwerk proved to be quite capable in handling previous crowdfundings. You’ll find that parallel to this projects there is as well a French project for the translation of Coriolis. Proving that the the system spreads quite a bit.
I do like and would recommend the C-EL DICE, which offers nice dice made in Germany. Though the whole project is presented in English and thus invites a more international audience. Another noteworthy project is ERDENSTERN Live In Concert, which offers to elevate the atmospheric sound of the band Erdenstern to an orchestral level.
You’ll find that the 3W6 Podcast seeks the support of patreons for their continued podcast, as well as Spielerverzeichnis asks for support to continue helping gamers to find each other.
In regards to the French project, you should check-out Meute, which happens to be the 100st project on the GameOnTabletops plattform. Meute explores the folklore of (South) France in regards of Werewolves and will offer the character two sheets for their two lycantroph forms. The human one as well as the wolf one. The whole concept and design really does look exciting. Then there is P.I.R.A.T.E.S. A rather rules light, short in pages game in which players assume the roles of pirates. The game is designed to be enjoyed by adults as well as young gamers. Last but not least there’s Cartes fantastiques offering really cool looking map stuff.
The Spanish novel CALAMITY does offer some reading material for those who like the D&D setting of Akuma.
You’ll find the projects I just spoke about here:

I present to you the new Crowdfunding Collection #71, including every tabletop project started between 02.26 till 03.05.

This week you’ll find the collection stuffed with cool and fascinating projects.
For example there’s Chernobyl, Mon Amour. A tabletop rpg focused on characters who fled society and stranded within the highly radioactive lands around the Chernobyl reactor. The game focuses on the characters, their situation and the personal drama with a narrative game design somewhat akin to Nordic Larp. It has been originally developed and written in Finnish in 2016 by Juhana Pettersson, who’s as well doing the project and the translation. I am fascinated by the approach, the setting as well as the design and thus backed and do recommend it.
I did place the Liminal RPG among the Role-Playing Games segment, though I think it might be as well worth a look if you like Story Games. You’ll find quite some info about the system in the second update and the game offers an interesting contemporary urban fantasy setting. Which I find quite intriguing
Far Away Land. is a rules-light game that should be fun for all ages. The system appears a bit more traditional, the fantasy setting looks quite fun and quite rich, well and you’ll find quite a lot of material.
If you prefer gm-less games you might like to take a look at the Protocol Fantasy Game Omnibus by Jim Pinto. You’ll get loads of Protocol Engine games. If you like Blades in the Dark and wish it was Cyberpunk Hack the Planet got you covered. Given that it is by the creators of The Veil it should be good, and if I were more into Cyberpunk I would back it in a minute.
You’ll find more interesting projects next to these. Like NecroMech does not only offer their classic rpg exclusivly as an app, but it comes bundles with a subscription online service. The Shrouded Order combines augemented reality with sightseeing and LARP. In regards of settings, Rappan Attuk opens the famous mega-dungeon setting to 5E and ANKUR will see a setting based upon the african continent.
Then there are plenty more projects, supplements, dice, pins & patches, a patreon and d!rip projects and many more. See for yourself:

I present to you the new Crowdfunding Collection #70, including every tabletop project started between 02.19. till 02.26.

In this collection you’ll find the supplement for Golden Sky Stories: Twilight Tales. The book will enrich the heartwarming role-playing guy by introducing Mononoke like frog-ghosts (Kappa), Michinoke, ghosts, demons (Oni), visitors (Aliens) and others. To be taken on journeys and adventures. I do like the heartwarming approach of GSS, the style in which those new types are introduced and the game in general. Thus I backed this supplement and do recommend it.
Next to the supplement you’ll find two more projects for core books.
At the one hand Devil’s Run, which will come with rules for Modiphius 2d20 (Coriolis, Mutant Year Zero etc) and Savage World. The setting is based on the miniature board game Miles Massacre and offers a post-apocalyptic US. In which various tribes – who to me look akin to Fallouts Raiders – battle for their life. The tabletop rpg version will be playable without miniatures and am tempted to back it.
At the other hand there’s Era: The Empowered. Which you might remember because they did some campaigns for novels and comics based in the science fiction setting. The Era system is well proven and sports several games in various genre and I enjoyed backing their Era: Hitman projects. I do recommend taking a look at it-
Next to those projects you’ll find other cool ones. Like the  Bronze Dice, a map of Sommerlund, story cards and more. Just take a look:

I present to you the new Crowdfunding Collection #69, including every tabletop project started between 02.12. till 02.19.

Given last weeks been valentines day a lot of new projects started up.
Gallant Knight Games are back with the Tiny Wastelands project. I’ve been in love with their previous Kickstarters like Mecha & Kajius and Tiny Fantasy and are up and ready to take it post-apocalyptic. Thus I backed and do recommend it. Bodycount on the other hand, a cyber punk/space punk rpg, did look a bit sparse on infos on first sight. Yet after having enjoyed the fun, australian-flavored video I am quite enticed and tempted. As it does remind me a bit of the humor of Tank Girl.
In regards of story game the most notable, in my opinion, is the funding of the second edition of Summerland. The game system changed to Open D6, yet should keep a narrative focus and the setting in which characters face their traumata. The Princess Bride RPG on the other hand is more lighthearted, offering the players to indulge into the inconcivable adventures and settings of the cult movie (and to a degree the book). The game uses Fudge and is developed by the creator of the system. Then there is H. P. Lovecraft Preparatory Academy offering a more fun than horror approach to the Cthulhu-Mythos utilizing a system based on PDQ#. Well, and if you check out Protean you’ll get a wholly new system.
Yet, the „none core book“-projects are fun as well. Like the Element Class Cruisers box set for Traveller or the Stormlands region description for Trudvang. A projects I find, quite out of the ordinary is The Pallid Mask. Not exactly because it’s a Cthulhu Adventure, but because it offeres „King in Yellow“-themed Tiki mugs. (Which I imagine to be a bit like polynesian beer steins).
Among the valentines season befitting, foreign language projects you’ll find Wege der Vereinigungen, the most recent project by Ulisses Spiele. Enriching the setting of The Dark Eye with a supplement all about (the positive) aspects of love. The book is designed with positivity as well as inclusivity in mind, well research and lavishly presented with quite some cool features like an audio-companion. I am intruiged by it, will backing and find it quite fascinating. La Trilogie de la Crasse (Triology of the Filth) caught my eye among the French projects. Basically because of the NC-17 sticker, yet at closer inspection it appears to offer a quite fascnating horror setting.
Next to those projects you’ll find (more English projects like) exciting adventures, beautiful dice, quite a lot of novels and comics based on tabletop rpgs, cool looking map projects and many more. Just take a look:

I present to you the new Crowdfunding Collection #68, including every tabletop project started between 02.04. till 02.12.

Within the collection you’ll find a PbtA game called Vagabonds of Dyfed. The games combines various mechanics inspired by games like Fate, Blades in the Dark and more, to create an OSR gaming experience. Which sounds interesting. Then there’s Age of Æther combing the Age of Enlightenment with the Industrial Revolution to create a Steampunk Fantasy Setting. Which is supported by a newly developed pool based system. Well, and then there is Quest, which pitches the survivors of a world spanning war against aliens intruders and features a d6 based system. If you are a Fan of Savage Worlds Fans you might like to take a look at Kung Fu Animals – it sounds and looks fun.
Though my personal enthusiasm is focused on Strongholds & Streaming. A book which will help you integrate the titular strongholds – which might be temples and other stuff – into your D&D5E campaign. Plus you’ll support the newest streaming project of Matthew Colville. Well, and you can get gemstone dragons. Am so in… as are many people. Elevating the project to the second most successful tabletop RPG KS!
Yet am at least a bit intrigued by Limitless Encounters 2 as well. It looks well and the concept is cool. Last but not least there’s Page Quest: Season 1. Which, as I have to admit, might be more a boardgame (dungeon crawler) than a tabletop rpg, yet am curious..
Next to those projects you’ll find plenty of supplements, adventures, dice stuff and more, just take a look:

I present to you the new Crowdfunding Collection #67, including every tabletop project started between 01.28. till 02.04.

The week covered saw a plenty of really cool projects started.
Among the tabletop role-playing games you’ll find Good Society: A Jane Austen Roleplaying Game from the creators of Alas for the Awful Sea. It sees the player assume the roles of characters within Austen-like stories.Vying to reach their goals within the challenges of station and societal rules and expectations. The project is well done, the video presentation is charming and informative, I like the system presented and thus couldn’t resist backing it.
The Keyring RPG manages to put a whole tabletop RPG onto a single key-ring. The game is already done and tested in Sweden, where it got a second edition. The presentation does look interesting and the d6 based system solid. With a more than reasonable price on top I couldn’t resist and backed it.
Next to those you’ll find a new Kickstarter for Spell: The RPG, offering the game with a hardcover book and a really fancy wooden box. It is a project that I got starred for maybe a later pledges..
Then there’s the Trinity: Continuum by Onyx Path, aiming to bringing the Trinity Univers back with a new edition under the Storypath System. While am not yet in for Aeon, I’ve been enticed enough to go for the core book pledge.
Last but not Least there’s Sagas of Midgard an interesting new take on creating a tabletop RPG focusing on north mythology..
Yet, you’ll find other cool projects next to those games. Like the Patreon to support Darker Hue Studios, the creators of Harlem Unbound. Well, or the Revilo Creature Collection which should make a really nice looking source to draw monsters. Am as well fascinated by Dungeon Solitaire, which is a card based (solo) dungeon crawling game. Or the CRYPTEX .. a „wooden dice box enigma“-thingy. There are many more cool projects, just take a look:

I present to you the new Crowdfunding Collection #66, including every tabletop project started between 01.21. till 01.28.

In regards of tabletop RPG you’ll find a new entry to the fantasy genre with Ascendant Destiny. The game appears to be focused on a rather heroic, colorful approach to the setting and the system seems quite traditional (d10 poolsystem) without being OSR. Next to that it has some nice illustrations, a charming project in my opinion. League of Seekers on the other hand is a game that took quite some inspiration from Bloodborn, dives into the grimdark times of eighteenhundred and seasons it by inserting some lovecraftian horrors. The base system is „percentile roll under“ though with some intriguing twists. Like a sanity mechanic where the character got to be actually a bit mad to see the horror. The last full tabletop rpg in this list is S̀uen Ikna, a game for whom it’s authors developed a whole new language (including a new alphabet) and which is quite a passion project.
Yet the various other projects are intruiging as well.
Like Seigneury of Borth a French / English project that offers beautiful setting illustrations. Well or the really cool looking dice like PolyHero or Necronomicon or those fancy Sumi coins.
You might choose to support New Agenda Publishing, a new publisher, run by experienced designers like Eloy Lasanta, Misha Bushyagar and Jerry D. Grayson. You could take a look at Elven Lords – a solo adventure for Tunnels and Trolls. If you got kids The Little Game Master childrens book might be worth having a look. Well and if you like games in general,.. I got intruiged by the Bokkel Magazine projects, despite it not being a Choose Your Own Adventure. Well, and if you are in Berlin, and interested in pervasive LARPs, you might like to check out the The Wall 2061 Citygame crowdfundinger.
There are many more cool projects, take a look for yourself:
