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:

I present to you the new Crowdfunding Collection #65, including every tabletop project started between 01.14. till 01.21.

In this collection you’ll find the Vital Hearts projects, aiming to fund a RPG that tackles the „Isekai genre“. Thus basically story about characters who’ll end up as avatars in a virutal game world. Like e.g. in Ready Player One, Swords Art Online, Log Horizon, Jumanji and other books/series. The game utilizes the „Cardinal System“ and the project is done by the people who brought Farflung, Myriad Song, Ironclaw, Urban Jungle and various other RPGs to live. I do feel tempted to back it.
Next to that the comic Life of the Party: Roll for Initiative sticks out to me the most. It looks like a fun little thing. Though the other projects deserve a look as well.
There are several very interesting projects in the foreign language section. Whether its the Spanish Cybersalles, the Swedish Chock or the French KABBALE am intrigued.

I present to you the new Crowdfunding Collection #64, including every tabletop project started between 01.07. till 01.14.

After a rather calm first week, 2018 is gaining momentum with Kickstarters Make/100 incentive, leading to quite some interesting projects.
My personal favorite project, which I backed, is Coin & Blood. A small OSR game that sees the players assume characters who usually are antagonists in fantasy stories.  The Vigilante Hack is somewhat similar, though rather founded in the superhero genre than in the fantasy one.
The D13 RPG offers an interesting story game approach and facilitates a horror game with d13. Am curious and had the project bookmarked for a closer look. Infinite Galaxies, on the other hand, is the first PbtA system for 2018, exploring the SF genre.
The shoutouts wouldn’t be complete without a mention of John Carter from Modiphius.
This time around am as well intrigued by both of the (PFRPG) supplements. At the one hand, there’s Faerie Fire which got a great 80s retro look to itself, at the other hand, and even more so Path of the Black Flag for attempting to introduce anarchy (as a political system) to a fantasy setting.
Next, to those you’ll find an interesting gamebook, cool dice, quite some non-tabletop RPG games that caught my eyes and more, take a look:

I present to you the new Crowdfunding Collection #63, including every tabletop project started between 01.01. till 01.07.).

In this collection, you’ll find the first crowdfunding projects started in 2018.
Amongst them Frankenstein Faktoria, a rather rule-light tabletop RPG in which you’ll assume the role of one of Dr. Frankensteins creations. The game does define various body parts (torso, arms, legs etc.) separately and offers an interesting conflict for the player. Whether to tighten his monsters screws and have it be dumb but brutal or loosen them and have it be smart but physically inept. An imho interesting concept and a game worth having a look.
DestinyQuest IV is a gamebook with nice looks and an interesting concept. As for settings, I would recommend fans of Savage Worlds to have a look at Children of the Apocalypse and fans of PFRPG at Widows Tear.
Next to those you’ll find interesting supplements like Dice Dungeons (to roll up stuff), reprints of a Folio, mini-dice and more cool projects. See for yourself:

I present to you the new Crowdfunding Collection #62, including every tabletop project started between 21.17 till 12.31.

To start of fresh into the next year there’s a new, rather small, collection.
In regards to the corebooks am most enamored with Nightcrawl. The game offers a Noire setting, a rather light rule system and an apparently nice creator. Thus it’s the last project I backed in 2017. With Cyneric’s Call you’ll find an original, rich fantasy setting along with a d12 based system. If you do like GM-less games you might like to take a look at  Bastille, a tabletop rpg that utilizes cards and might almost be a boardgame hybrid.
Caffeinated Conquests is a fresh Patreon project. I do follow their YT channel for quite a while and so far tremendously enjoyed their short Let’s Plays, the RPG-Imaginarium and the funny „How not to play a /VtM Clan/“ sketches. Thus I do support it and recommend it whole heartidly.
Next to those you find a small, varied number of other projects, like campaigns, settings, soundscapes and even some tabletop rpg inspired neckties. Just take a look:

I present to you the new Crowdfunding Collection #61, including every tabletop project started between 12.03 till 12.17.

Right before the holidays the numbers of projects did wind down somewhat.
Yet there’s at least one project I personally important, Love Tove. It does offer the opportunity to support the Swedish tabletop designers Anders Gillbring and Tove Gillbring in their fight against cancer. Offering them the opportunity to spend their days left together.
Another interesting project is Dice Men: Games Workshop 1975 to 1985, a book focusing at a part of gaming history.
Among the few core books I would consider Havenlore the more interesting of both, even though or maybe because of it being a project apparently close to the heart of the designers. Storyverse at the other hand is a gamebook which attempts to combine the book with an App.
Fans of Savage Worlds might have fun with the Sherwood setting while those who follow the Old Ones might like to take a look at the The Idol of Cthulhu scenario. The supplements will extend D&D 5E with a Creature Codex as well as Hunters Mark. Well, and there are quite some adventures for D&D as well as PFRPG.
In regards of the foreign language books, the Spanish tabletop RPG So Below caught my eye. In general you’ll find plenty other projects, whether dice, Accessoires, terrain stuff and more:

I present to you the new Crowdfunding Collection #60, including every tabletop project started between 11.25 till 12.03.

This time around the collection is quite compact, though it does sport a surprising number of projects in French, Spanish and Italian.
In regards of the English projects I am most fascinated by Sigmata. A rpg that will see you take up arms against a fascist system in the 80s. If you are a Fate Core player, you might like to check out Warsong. As for the Story Games there’s School of Wizard & Witches on the one hand. A tabletop rpg that tries to integrate audio books. At the other hand Story Time Cards, a card game that’s aiming to offer kids a fun, cooperative way to create stories.
As for the other RPGs, am quite fascinated by the French project for Aegyptus and the Spanish one for fRáGiL.
Of course those ain’t all the projects, just take a look at the whole deal:
