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:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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