I present to you the new Crowdfunding Collection #133 – Part 1 of 3, including every tabletop rpg project started between 02/02 and 02/09 up till 8pm.

The collection is a bit delayed, because I am currently dealing with some personal stuff and because of the massive amount of projects – that’s 44 full games! Next to that, to make it a bit digestible, I split the collection into three parts:
Crowdfunding Collection #133 – Part 2 of 3 – Zine Quest
Crowdfunding Collection #133 – Part 3 of 3 – Zine Quest

I’d like to start with the Blacksad role-playing game by Nosolorol. They did release the original Spanish version of the game based on the popular comic series, and aim now to finance the English translation. For those who don’t know the comics, they offer a neo-noir setting in which anthropomorphic animals populate cities and a cat detective. The game uses a fast, simple d6 system and, well, I marked it. If you’d rather play humans, and would like to play people who go after the various supernatural plagues of urban cities, you should take a look at the second edition of Hunter: The Vigil. The Chronicles of Darkness game enables you to play various tiers of hunters, from two wayward brothers up to whole organisations. Onyx Path Publishing is a very reliable creator and I do recommend it. Then there’s Deviant Evolution, which isn’t about the new deviants that Onyx Path will present. Instead it’s places its deviants in the future where they’ll have to venture out and explore. The game uses the Prometheus system, which can be previewed in a lite version on DTRPG.
Then there is Altered Carbon by Hunters Books. The cyberpunk game is based on the Netflix and book series by the same name. People can switch their bodies (sleeved) as they like, or rather as they can afford. The setting is very cool – I liked the show – and the system doesn’t seem to be to bad. Plus, the publisher will be creating the 5th edition of Werewolf the Apocalypse. Which puts me from „interested“ to „backer“ – take look. Omega Horizon is another take on the cyberpunk genre, which adds piloted mechs. I like the idea, the system sound solid enough, though I couldn’t spare the cash.
A project I do honestly love and champion hard is Vampire: The Masquerade – CHAPTERS. The game is a mixture of a roleplaying game and dungeon crawler boardgame with way more social aspects. Basically a „gamebook boardgame“. I met it at SPIEL 2019 and loved it so much that I started supporting it on the spot. The game mechanics are simple, accessible and fun. I usually don’t give a rats ass about miniatures, but the 40mm ones are very beautiful. The game material, alas only preview one, was very cool. If you want to try it yourself, check out the two free online preludes on TableTopia – they showcase the basic mechanics. Then there are lot of miniatures – Vampires! Werewolf! Ananasi (Werspider)! Bloodlines 2 character and many more -, coins, dice bags and not to expansive V5 metal dice (15 dice for ~38$).
I am in, twice! Check it out!
There are cool other ttrpg related projctes to. For example the Decuma deck of cards. Which offer really nice cards to R&D settings and campaigns. I couldn’t resist. Though I did manage my willpower roll on Coins of the Tarot. The coins look cool, but my budget says „nope“. There are cool dice projects like The vintage bone dice and if you like PFRPG you might like to checkout the video game Wrath of the Righteous. There is a nice Spanish notebook with Cuadernos & Dungeons and the French game Aria looks very, very cool.
You find these and many more cool projects here:

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

February introduces the Zine Quest 2 Kickstarter event, which follows a very productive week in regards to projects started. Thus there are a total of 79 projects, about 26 offering new games. To make it a bit more accessible, I decided to split the collection.
Do take a look at part 1!

In this part I will focus on all the many Zine projects.
Rain on a Conga Drum shows that something as small as a zine can contain not one, not two but three games! The games are all inspired by the musician Van Zandt, who appears to be a country singer or well songwriter. The approach intruiges me and I feel tempted. In Beak, Feather, & Bone the player play crow like creatures and essentially build a world or rather map, including notations. The illustrations look cool and the approach to make world-building fun sounds enticing. Though, you might be looking for a solo game experience, in which case, take a look at the The Artefact. The game has you creating an artifact and see where it goes and what is done with it..
Palanquin is more a traditional fantasy game. The player character happens to be the heir to a dynasty, when a coupe happens and puts them in danger as well as sees them fleeing. Basically like Ciri in The Witcher (I imagine). I do trust Jason Pitre, the designer, and ton and might back it. Then there’s BUTCHERY, where the characters have to face monsters that were created by the actions of humans and restore harmony in nature. I think of it as maybe being a bit like Werewolf The Apocalypse. Without the bloat or shapeshangers. The setting is described as licorice fantasy (dark, bitter but not all tears and misery), which is quite a unique description (I like salty licorice). I might backe it and recommend having a look at the game. With Corsairs you’ll get more lofty, airborn fantasy. Sailing around in flying ships with floating islands. Which sounds nicte. Well, and then there’s No Stone Unturned. Where you may explore a fantasy world and build a homebase. With the option to peak into the system via the SRD. Rarely did I like that many „normal“ fantasy game.
If you rather play a mundane band, checkout ROCK & ROLL. With Rock’n’Roll being something that might provide a good soundtrack to some Derby Drama. Both games do look solid.
Though maybe you like your mundane and urban game with some fantasyA Touch of Glamour has you covered with playing fae creatures. Alternatively you might descend into a the Green Dawn Mall to get one of your pals out of the maze. Well or you’re a gay dishwasher, greeter in the Dish Pit Witches. Which sounds like a quite unique idea.
There’s the option that you prefer science fiction. Where I would recommend to you having a look at Moonsailors. Traversing space, making discovery… the game focuses on the solitary experience and the connectivness, being accessible for groups of 3 to 5 players. Then there’s VALOR KNIGHTS: THE ELECTROCUBE WAR which looks more like fun cartoon syfy, Which is a nice change.
There are plenty more cool zines. Settings like Willow, supplements like On the Shoulders of Colossus or Dead Halt – Happy New Year 1999 as well as adventures like Sinister Red (full of vampires).
You’ll find all those projects – and more – listed here:

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

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

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

I present to you the new Crowdfunding Collection #131, including every tabletop rpg project started between 1/19 and 01/26.

With 41 projects started in a week the crowdfunding year is back in full swing, thus let’s start.

2 Women | 12 Games by Elizabeth Chaipraditkul and Steffie de Vaan offers the titular dozen of games, which are already fully developed and will be collected into one book. The games cover a great range of fascinating topics and use rule light mechanics to up to bespoke rules. I couldn’t resist and backed it in a minute. I am as well enticed to back the Trophy RPG. First it offers a one-shot game about doomed trophy hunters. Second it offers a campaign game where the fate of the trophy hunters isn’t sealed from the get go. Last but not least it offers a really nifty setting book for the world the trophy hunters engage in. If you don’t like it as dark, maybe check out Age of Ambition. The setting at the verge from fantasy towards maybe something like the industrial age seems new and interesting. In regards of mechanices it uses the Saga Machine engine and offers lifepath based character creation. World of Ere might be your cup of tea if you like a nice steampunk game based on the OGL licence. I think it looks nice.
If you like your game with a lot of technical integration, take a look at Knuckledragger. The concept looks interesting, apparently offering something like its own Roll20 platform – though it’s a bit to technical for me. Legendaria 2020 on the otherhand provides a nice mixture between ttrpg and a more classical card- or boardgame.
I’d rather like to express a stern warning regarding Mafia Caporegime. The IndieGoGo campaign runs parallel to a doomed Kickstarter, the creator doesn’t communicate and given that the IndieGoGo campaign will take your money directly… I am doubtful that you’ll see a game for it. After noticing the IndieGoGo thing I backed out of the Kickstarter.
There are of course plenty more cool projects like the gamebook Steam Highwayman III. If you are a fan of GURPS, take a look at the sourcebook Dungeon Fantasy Companion 2. Take it fast, because it will end in just a few hours. There are cool projects like Doom on the Warden for Metamorphis Alpha or Outpost 42 for Stars Without Numbers and many, many more cool adventures.
Just take a look for yourself:

I present to you the new Crowdfunding Collection #130, including every tabletop rpg project started between 01/12 and 01/19.

You’ll find that there are only 3 projects for full games been started since the last collection, yet there are still plenty cool projects.

First there is High Colonies, a hard SciFi game by the creators of HarnMaster. Humanity managed to finally and ultimately ruin earth and thus had to retreat into a few space stations – now called High Colonies. Effectively reducing the population to just a meager 20 million people. The players will explore space, the relations between the High Colonies and may direct the future of humanity. While I don’t exactly got a Hard Sci-Fi vive from the cover, more like 70s or 80s covers – though the setting sounds interesting.. Take a look. Then there is 2d6 Adventures which offers classical fantasy with a 2d6 system as mentioned in the title. Players apparently roll up their character, who’ll be described in 12 numbers, and may choose a class (one of 30) that fit them based on their results. Last but not least there is Strange Things Afoot, a Urban Horror role-playing game that incorporates creepypasta style stories. The player assume the role of teenagers, college students and try to fight supernatural creatures called tulpas. These tulpas need to be known and use the internet to spread the word, well and the net can be utilized to fight them. Sadly the project doesn’t talk about the system, but directs the interested player to DTRPG for further infos.
If you are more looking for a setting, take a look at the Very Pretty Paleozoic Pals: Permian Nations for the Troika RPG. There are fore sure not a lot of paleozoic settings and this one looks colorful, creative and fun – without being to stupid. If that’s to sweet for you, check out the Never Going Home Campaign Dossiers. Considering it offers scenarios, campaigns for cthulhoid horror during World War I. I got the core game, am tempted myself and do highly recommend it!
Then there are nice Dragon Scale Dice made from metal. You can roll them behind the exquiste Fire Dragon Valhalla Screen by Dog Might Games and put them through the rad looking Wizard’s Tower by Hexwood instead of simply rolling them. If you are more looking for a calender that communicates your love for dice, check out the Make 100 Calendar Dice, you might find a fitting notebook in the Roverbook. There are other projects like the Arkanos Card Set or the Full-Color Custom Miniatures with Hero Forge 2.0 – a project that’s going through the roof.
There are many more projects, you find those and the other mentioned here:

I present to you the new Crowdfunding Collection #129, including every tabletop rpg project started between 01/05 and 01/12.

Liberté started its second, this time round likely successful, attempt at funding the translation of the French PbtA game. The game focusses on essentially lost children in a world devoid of adults under a constant rain. The setting is quite interesting, it looks cool and I recommend having a look at it. Have I had more money, I’d back it. If you would prefer a low fantasy game, check out The Hero’s Journal. It orients itself at the classic of the genre, looks nice and combines an OSR system with modern elements. Then there’s Glitch, which I too would describe as fantasy. You’ll play gods who went full amageddon on the world and then noticed it was a flawed action. Now they got to do some investigative stuff and fix things. The setting approach is quite unique and the  system is interesting. I’ll be having a closer look at it later. Though, if your like your fantasy steamy, err steampunk, take a look at Mighty Tiny: Tales of the Old Empires. The game is based on the comics of Ben Dunn and offers a setting and system that’s compatible with Savage Worlds and D&D 5E. Last but not least take a look at the Hexagon system. I do actually like the idea of putting the rules on a bunch of character sheets, which looks great.
Then there are two gangster rpgs. There is Mafia Caporegime , offering a totally new game. The characters aim to claim the title of caporegime and thus upturn the local mob. Something which will be supported by their background. The game offers 7 character classes and an entry level adventure. I do would like to have had some more infos about the rules, and asked for them, yet did back it. I think it’s worth having a look. The twist of CAPERS RPG is that the players play superpowered gangsters during the prohibition. I already backed the card based system in a previous project, and do feel tempted to get this deluxe edition too.
If you rather have a good old, well new, game book, take a look at Ghost Ops – Operation Lone Wolf. Then there is the Dungeon Party hybrid rpg. Hybrid, because I didn’t really see the rpg aspect in what appears to be a straight fantasy themed social card game.
There are of course other cool projects like the Blood Floats in Space setting for the Mothership RPG, which caught my eyes with its interesting illustration. The sourcebook The Forgotten Rites of the Moldering Dead for DCC focuses on death, dying, rituals, the undead and more. Which is why I do strongly consider backing it. Another cool thing is the Fungi Fight for Freedom Adventure where you play mushroomy adventures who fight for their freedom. Well, and there a cool, little, handcrafted leather maps to be found in the MeepleCraft Mini Maps project.
You find all those and more projects here:

I present to you the new Crowdfunding Collection #128, including every tabletop rpg project started between 12/29 and 01/05.

The new year starts with about 18 projects, let’s get to ‚em.

Last Fleet RPG is a Powered by the Apocalypse games that offers a science fiction setting that appears to be focused on action. hinweisen.The playbooks are based on the (western) horoscope and considering that my sign (Taurus) fits about my kind of characters a 100 percent to the nail, I couldn’t resist! I supported other projects by the creators like Bite Marks and do consider them trustworthy. Take a look at it. The there is Casting the Runes is based on the Gumshoe system which approaches the story by M.R. James and offers investigations of ghostly apperitions and other supernatural mysteries. Set in the Eduardian era I consider the take on horror a quite refreshing change from the lovecraftian standard and recommend checking the project. Home offers a science fantasy setting that pitches humanity against mutated animals. Sadly, the project is a bit scant on informations.
In regards to other projects, Denoa offers a colorful and interesting looking setting for D&D 5E. If  you are more looking for D&D 5E adventures, A System-Neutral TTRPG Adventure offers you the opportunity to add some personal input, The Folio: Black Label #3 impresses with opulent graphics and maps and if you want some lovecraftesque horror, you should look at A One-shot Mystery Adventure. If you are more on the lookout for a container for your cards, you might like to check out the Custom Wooden Card Game Deck Boxes – they look create.
There are more cool projects. As usual, you’ll find them here::

I present to you the new Crowdfunding Collection #127, including every tabletop rpg project started between 12/22 and 12/29.

In the final Collection, that will conclude 2019, you’ll only find six projects. Given the small number, I’ll introduce each of them briefly..

Destiny Aurora is a Starfinder based sourcebook or companion book. It expands the Starfinder universe with the setting from the comic book of the same name. Providing players with new races, various faction to align to or alienate, the option to shape your crew, ship and reputation in the univers while braving various adventures. The setting appears quite interesting, colorful and I recommend having a look. Then there is the stadalone game ADVANCED FANTASY ROLE-PLAYING, which offers a very classic, complex gaming experience. It appears to have been created with quite some love, though not my kind of game.
If you faced the problem that your convention badged ruined a table, you might like to take a look at the Game Convention Lanyard Stabilizer. A clip that helps with freely swinging badges. Then there are the Game Mash Chipboard Monster Tokens, which offer precisely what the name says. Tokens to use during games.
If you speak or understand Spanish you might like to take a look at Vendha. The first book of a three part Spanish book series. If you like to have a key chain that combines Alpacas and gaming, you might like to check out the French project Les alporte clés du rôliste.
You’ll find all projects mentioned over here:

I present to you the new Crowdfunding Collection #126, including every tabletop rpg project started between 12/16 and 12/22.

Right before (or in) the Holidays this collection still contains 16 projects, one of which is my clear favorite.

Cults of the Blood Gods offers an essential sourcebook for the 5th edition of Vampire: The Masquerade (V5) and proves that Onyx Path can start und successfully fund a project during the holidays. The books offers all rules and fluff needed to play my favorite Clan the Giovanni, along with other clans and bloodlines like the Cappadocians, Samedi, Nagaraja, Harbinger of Skulls and basically everyone necromantically inclined. Including a new, unifying title of „The Hecata“ – though one can always play a splinter group that insist on their original identity..
Next to those clans the book offers everything one might need to know about cults and religions in the context of the V5. You’ll get existing groups like the Church of Caine, Bahari, Nephilim, Church of Set, Cult of Mithras and many more. If you want to do something of your own device, you’ll get a toolbox to create your own cult.
The book will provide a campaign set in and around Munich (Germany), a kin to the campaigns offered in Chicago. Plus more scenarios ready to be played in a companion PDF.
There is more and for me it’s an absolute „must back“, a project which I recommend wholeheartidly and with passion. The potentially most important book next to the V5 core. Take a look, back it. If you are abroad, the shipping costs have dropped more than half of previous OPPs projects. If your budget suffered from the Holidays, it’s up till the 18th of January. Do it, back it! ;)
Another imho cool project is the Tabletops and Tentacles magazine. It offers adventures, a Print & Play game, NPCs, interviews, and more material on like 140+ pages. It looks great and I recommend having a look.
Then there is the one-shot adventure Legends of Novus Adventures: Kzmatic’s Keep. It looks stunning and pitches the PCs against a megalomaniac Lich who is in need of defeating. It’s a bit short, yet cool. Take a look.
If you like some dice to go along with it, take a look at the silver Dragon’s Hoard Dice or the nicely Dragon Themed Polyhedral dice set. If you like some digital tool to build your adventures, well take a look aat Dungeon & Quest Generator. It looks nice and useful.
I personally do feel tempted to back the Spanish translation of Tenra Bansho Zero from Japanese. I got an English edition, yet I want to improve my Spanish and hope that they do include the „rules for mass combat“ that are cut from the English edition and await being made available in a separate PDF. I am mostly kept away, by not being sure if they deliver to Germany and how much it will cost.
There are, of course, more projects next to the ones I mentioned. Just see for yourself:

I present to you the new Crowdfunding Collection #125, including every tabletop rpg project started between 11/24 and 12/15.

After I attended Dragonmeet and been to a work related training, I am back with about 40 projects. Sadly, thanks to the timespan, some projects closed before I could report on them and some are quite close to finishing, thus, let’s get to it.

The Children of Eriu is a new game placed in the setting of Fate of the Norns. It offers a very celtic setting and a very cool fitting tarot deck. Next to a very rich background, stunning illustrations it has an interesting and tested system, which is based on drawing rune stones. The creator Andrew Valkauskas is experienced with delivering projects and I do recommend it highly. If you are looking for a game fitting for the upcoming holidays, that includes the Krampus, take a look at ‚TWAS – The Roleplaying Game Before Christmas. It offers a rules-light system, which you use to play sentinent toys that are out to rescue Santa. The game is done by Jonathan Green and based on the game book by the same name, the idea is neat and the presentation interesting. I do recommend to check it out. If you’ll like something more futuristic, take a look at Retropunk, which is a cyberpunk game that has a system inspired a bit by PbtA and more by Blades in the Dark. I like the idea and am actually quite very tempted. Then there’s Hardboot, a D&D 5E game, where you’ll play videogame characters who gotta fight. The project doesn’t appear convincing to me and I do would advice caution.
There are plently of other project. For example I am considering the Memento Mori / Memento Vivere campaign, which might have a small rules-light system to fit. There are beautiful dice like the Solid Brass Rainbow Serpentine Dice by Polyhydra or those from the LUMO project.
There are many cool projects that you should check out, just have a look:
