I present to you the new Crowdfunding Collection #152, including every tabletop rpg project started between 09/27 and 10/11.

Back after two weeks with no less than a total of 91 projects, of which 18 are ttrpgs. If you like to get directly to the meat of the collection, just skip my rather long preamble.

Though lets start with Acheron. The game introduces the players to the concept of „Grimpunk“, which in this case involves alternative 1930ties. A world that offers eldritch horrors to be fought and overcome by the heroes. The system provides a mix of narrative elements, three sanity attributes and a deadly combat system. I think it’s interesting and deserves a look. Throwing Hornes offers less dark setting, as you set out for a tour with your demon metal band through hell. The game is presented as a small zine and played with d6. To stick to the topic of demons, and add some angels into the mix, in Era: Forbidden both are at war. You’ll be playing as supernaturally enhanced humans, trying to avoid that humanity ends up as a collateral of the raging war. In regards to mechanics it uses the well tested Era d10 System. Maybe you are looking for something narrative? Then check out Spindlewheel. A game in which you weave stories as a group with the help of tarot cards.
In regards of fantasy games, Yonder has the player characters flee from a calamity. The search for refugee and the run will bring their true character to the front, which may include literal transformation. I am intruiged, given that the book aimes to be graphic novel size (~150 pages) and the mechanics presented look interesting, I am in. If you like Blades in the Dark but look for some planar fantasy, check out Sig: City of Blades. The setting looks colorful, interesting and you should take a look for yourself. Maybe you played Stars without Numbers but wished it was fantasy? Then Worlds Without Number has you covered with their aesthetically pleasing take on bringing the OSR mechanics to a fantasy world.
There are some games, which imho fit the Halloween season fine. Like being scary but not to much horror. For example MORTASHEEN pretty much nails the look for me, even as it is a bit shy on how it is played. Then you should check out Gruesome Ghoulies. You’ll be playing rowdy ghouls, investigating mysteries, driving Hot Rods and playing Rock’n’Rool. The game is available in a free One-Sheet version and the Kickstarter aims to finances a zine upgrade. Cool. Then there’s Rest in Pieces, which describes itself as a „Card & Block Tower RPG“. Basically hoping to emulate fast, funny and bizarre cartoon action ala Rick & Morty ab. While I am not sure about the mechanics, I didn’t delve to deep into it, it has the looks.
If you prefer your horror more horrific, maybe check out Terrors and Tommyguns. The game combines cosmic horror and the 1920s, along with a d20 rollover system. If you are up for some American Gothic … Horror, check out Flames of Freedom. It throws you into the revolution of 1776 and sees you fighting monsters next to the confederates using the system introduced by Zweihänder. I am intruiged, as they do actually got consultants and try to differ a bit from a „European White“ point of view, which tends to be the usual approach. If you like a quick, one shot rpg, check out Fright Nights: Wendigo RPG. An adventure and RPG all in one little zine, aimed at beginner STs and players alike (next to more experience ones). It is part of an intruiging series. Then there’s the Widdershins RPG, which explores the 1910 setting of Whyborne & Griffins- a queer romance series. While I don’t know the source, it looks like fighting eldritch horror Jane Austen style, something quite fascintating. Check it out.
For people who like SF, maybe take a look at Weirdspace. It offers a scifi sandbox setting with quite some British comedy. You can checkout a free 16-pages prerelease on DTRPG to get a look at the game, and it appears to be a very solid project. Maybe you have wondered what would happen if The Expanse and Doom were combined? Well, Will Power Games answer this scenario in Death Diverse. The lavishly illustrated project offers a fresh 5d6 system and does interest me. If you ever wished for a Stargate SG-1 game, well, you are being served. Explore different worlds via Stargates and meddle in the conflict between Tau’ri and Goa’uld – all with a D&D 5E variant system
Next to those games there are many more intruiging, cool projects. As an avid fan of the World of Darkness I had to back Ghost Hunters for World of Darkness 20th Anniversary. The sourcebooks offers ghost hunters to be used with all WoD x20 gamelines, and might even be seen as kind of a core book. Super cool! Join in! If you are a fan of undead and necromantic things, maybe take a look at the Dungeon Master’s Adventure Pack Issue 5 – Necropolis zine, offering just that. There are intruiging adventures like Ancient Undead Spider Wizard, which will be funded along with a vinyl record, or you could try to understand mistosis (real life one) with the The Great Divide module for D&D 5E. The Snow Cone & Sundae dice for DCC see me strongly tempted. Well, and you could just make your own dice with the Royal Mold System. The card deck Deck of Dungeons from Germany might be worth having a look and I am intruiged by the GAME THEORY IN THE AGE OF CHAOS book project, which takes a rather political lense to game development.
You’ll find these and many, many more intruiging projects here:

I present to you the new Crowdfunding Collection #151, including every tabletop rpg project started between 09/20 and 09/27.

The collection is back to its normal, weekly release and thus offers a short, yet mostly very delightful, list of projects. Enjoy! :)

I will start with the Good Strong Hands RPG, which offers a dark game with whimsical elements. The name is inspired by the heart wrenching scene of the Neverending Story and the setting premise does somewhat follow the book/movie as the players try to save the world of Reverie from the destructive „Void“. Thus the stories focus on friendship, teamwork, dangerous forces and handling a world in crisis. The world of Reverie is created by the players in a group effort, as it is a world of imagination. The system offers gamebooks and a d6 pool system. I feel very tempted to back it, and recommend you take a look. I am as well enticed to back the 2nd edition of Kingdom. The game, by renowned game designer Ben Robbins, has you forming a community ~ well the titular kingdom ~ and explore what happens to it. The concept is cool, and you can be quite sure Ben delivers. Fans of genre pieces like Indiana Jones, the Mummy, Uncharted & co. should have at Broken Compass. The game has already funded, and created an Italian edition, and now its up to get the books out in English. You can check out the quickstart rules, and I do love that the core book is presented in a notebook/journal style book. Which is, why I do consider backing it, while not being that much interested in the genre. Which is cool too. It helps, that the game looks great. If you are looking for a new system, along with settings, you should check out Epic! Game System: Realms of Mana and Stars of Mana. The system is promised to be brand new, and will be available under an OGL like license. Next to that you’ll get a fantasy setting in Realms of Mana and a science fiction sandbox setting in Stars of Mana. A nice project, that does appear to have a lot of work being done at..
The times of corona, might have you looking for another journaling rpg, in which case Down the Old Rail Line has you covered. It’s a small, charming, PDF only game, in which you take a bicycle trip through a fantasy world and note down the foreign landscape and events. Next to being nice, it is at a rather low price bar.
Fans of game books, should check out the Arkham Archives, which explore the works and settings of Lovecraft. The project offers the first part of a five part series. Next to a book, you’ll get a stylish deck of cards, which got me hooked, especially at ‚just‘ 15€. Take a look.
There are other cool projects, like the The Wagadu Chronicles. Next to a nice, isometric afrofantasy MMO, it offers a D&D 5E setting book to go along with it. I did join the nice project from a game dev studio in Berlin (Germany) and recommend you have a look. If you wonder how to put more Dragons into your D&D game, checkout The Cosmic Dragon Breviary: A Draconic Compendium – it gets you a lot of draconic stuff. Though if you up for an adventure, pardon an incursion, for the Trophy RPG, take a look at Alchemy. Then there are Ice Dice, offering you a mold to create ice dice, to keep your drinks cool. The Amazing Fireball Dice on the other hand ain’t to hot to game, and look great. There is a deck of card like the Itemancy Cards for D&D or a soundscapelike Winter RPG Adventure.
You find these, and many, many more projects, in this list:

I present to you the new Crowdfunding Collection #147, including every tabletop rpg project started between 07/26 and 08/09.

Back after two weeks and admist a summerly heatwave, I can report that there are about 69 projects started, which I like to present to you in this collection.

Let’s get started with XII: Inner Demons, an urban fantasy rpg, in which the players set out to prevent an apocalypse due to happen in twelve days by the arrival of an arch demon. The game looks nice and presents a setting made for small campaigns with a distinct ending. I recommend checking the playtest at DTRPG and having a look. If you are a fan of time travelling Science Fiction, with open campaigns, check out Zoetrope. The game by Dane Asmunds is fully card based, which means you’ll use the cards instead of dice and for describing your character. I backed Moth Children from him and do recommend having a look at this project. Travelling back in time to the glorious 70s to 80s you might like to check out Glam Metal Monster Hunter. The micro RPG zine offers a game about Neon Knights and Denim demons and uses a small d6 based system. Cute. Another cute concept offers Magic School Mystery, basically all about juveline adventures at the titular magic school. A somewhat magical school is as well the setting of Preparing for Paris. A game in which you will play personified sports, going through some high school drama while trying to qualify themselves for the Paris olympics. Which does sound fun and neu.
Wanderhome at the otherhand is a pastoral fantasy game about travelling animal folk. The serene game about travelling through various seasons, uses an unique game engine inspired by No Dice, No Masters. The designer, Jay Dragon, has Kickstarter and RPG design experience with Sleepaway and I would recommend having a look at Wanderhome. The Dames of Asstoria offers a more traditional RPG game. You’ll be playing girl monsters on their adventures. The adventures aim at being PG-13 and using a d100 system. An even more traditional game is The Majestic Fantasy RPG. You can use it as a standalone system, or as an sourcebook for Sword and Sorcery.
The game Cthulhu Parlour’s „Hotel Lovecraft“ mixes roleplaying game, boardgame and gamebook elements with some theater elements. It thus can’t be called a straight up rpg, but I think it is an interesting project. You’ll find that Vampire: The Masquerade Rivals isn’t a rpg at all, but an expandable card game based on the prominent ttrpg IP. I think it is super cool, backed it and do recommend that you check it out.
There are many more cool projects, like the Svilland setting for D&D 5E, the sourcebook Guide to Kroma for traveling in games or the Chewer of Fingers adventures. There are the beautiful Koi-waii Dice and the newest Elder Dice: Shards of Illumination project. You’ll find the Dark Art Book and Cards ~ tarot cards ~ along with an interpretation aid for D&D and the fluffly Tiny RPG Universe Plushies.

I present to you the new Crowdfunding Collection #146, including every tabletop rpg project started between 07/05 and 07/26.

After almost three weeks passed, there are 67 projects to report on, thus, let’s get started.
I will start by highlighting Jiangshi: Blood in the Banquet Hall. The RPG places the players in the role of chinese imigrants that happen to be running a restaurant in the American 1920s. They will have to face the challenges of keeping the business running whilst facing racism, and as if that’s enough to deal with there are the Jiangshi. Vampires plaguing the community and family by night. The game is fascinating, especialls with a mechanic that doesn’t focus on physical conflict (thus, you won’t dropkick the vampires into oblivion). I am very intruiged, highly recommend it and might join in to get a boxset of the game. I did back INSPIRISLES in the blink of an eye. The setting about kids and teens being confronted with creatures from Celtic folklore, Neverending Story and Labyrinth style, appears rather ’standard‘ to me. I personally got sold on the aspect that the game aims to teach the players ASL/BSL (American/British sign language). Which got me hooked. Check if out. For those who do enjoy Horror flicks in the B-Movie style of the ~50s to 60s, take a look at They Came from Beyond the Grave! from Matthew Dawkins. The game will have you recreate daring & horrific adventures in the style of the old movies. Playing the characters, using their quips and bringing movie tropes like less than stable sets to life. System wise it uses the Storypath System from Onyx Path and I do recommend the current Actual Play series by Red Moon Roleplaying. If you want your horror with a good portion of the post-apocalypse check out When Shadows Fall. The system draws inspiration from PbtA, Cortex as well as the Mutant Year Zero games, and the project page offers further details. The illustration look nice and I do think it is worth taking a look. Then there is The New West, a PbtA Western RPG. The project page isn’t detail but it ain’t expensive.
Fans of Cyberpunk and/or Hip Hop should have a look at Axon Punk: Expanded. The project offers an enhanced edition of the corebook. I pledged and received the original corebook, I am happy with it and thus I do recommend it. If you are looking for some multiverse aetherpuznk stuff Aether and Steamworks 1.5 might be right up your ally. It does look at least nifty.
If you do enjoy fantasy, maybe take a look at the Super Simple Roleplaying Game. It is a small game, which aims to live up to its name by being simple and accessible. Then there’s the Magic Seekers RPG, in which you play teens or young adults in a fantasy setting. It will see you be ready to go with 3 adventures.
I personally couldn’t resist the optics of Necronautilus. A science fiction game in which you play „Death Agents“ on their missions in rather psychodelic settings. It uses „words“ a long with a role under mechanicas its base system and I am utterly capitvated. Take a look, and maybe back it too. If you are looking for SF with steam punk, Brass Rings got you covered. The tiny game, which should fit into your pocket, has you play adventures, bipedal space rats.
Maybe you like cards or want to give cards a go? In this case, check out Cartomancy. You can chose the setting of your game freely and it does offer tactical depth if the players wish for it. The card design does look nice, and I feel at least a little bit intruiged by the project. Then there is Duality, which does offer a universal approach as well. Alas, the project doesn’t offer a lot of information and even the name is still in somewhat of a flux.
There are many more cool projects. Like the magazine Era Zone 2020 for the Era-sytsem family, The Dark Eye – Gods of Aventuria does offer to expand the cosmos of the originally German ttrpg for English speakers and the Book of Beastly Creatures does provide quite a nice menagerie. There are many cool dice, like the Geocentric Light /Metallic RPG Dice, the Color Spray Dice and even stuff like the Foldable Metal Dice. Then there’s Dungeons of Doria which offers various Print & Play Tiles for rooms and artworks; both to support online roleplaying games, just take a look.
Take a look at these and many, many more cool projects overe here:

I present to you the new Crowdfunding Collection #145, including every tabletop rpg project started between 06/14 and 07/05.

The collection has no fewer than 70 projects, which makes it massive. Thanks to reason of time, the sheer amount and my health, I didn’t took a deep dive into every project, but hope to offer an interesting overview..

You will find that the Slayers roleplaying game present you the opportunity to hunt monsters in a city that will be formed by your players. Next to 4 different classes the game sports an asynchron combat system, which I find very, very fascinating. There is a magazine based series of rpg games that will have have its first issue called Adventure Presents: Tartarus Gate. Within just 54 pages you’ll find a complete SciFi horror game that has everything included required to play, but the 3 six-sided dice. If you like to design your own setting, the BYTE RPG offers a d8 based system to facilitate it. Along with 7 ready made settings for those who aren’t that much into world building. If you are more a world building purist, and you are looking for „realistic“ rules, checkout the 5A System. It might got you covered.
If you are an anime fan and love the works of Studio Ghibli check out Monster Care Squad. In this game you’ll play as elite veterinarian who have to care about mythical creatures. Then there’s My Anime Story, if you like to implement your favorite anime setting yourself. Though the description is a bit bare bones.
Fully fleshed and aimed at kids it the rpg Fairies of the Mistglade. Which has separate tiers for the age groups of 3 to 5, 5 to 8 and 8+ years old. With varying approaches to arithmetics to support the development of the children playing. The second edition of SLICE on the other hand is designed by kids for kids. Which occurs to me is a sure way to make sure that kids are actually interested in it.
Straying away from children ~ maybe onto more people in puberty ~ who want to play a big, evil badguy, the Dark Lord has that covered. You assume the role of overlords who want to plunder, burn stuff down and kill the heroes. Thus you got a villain meetings and fitting campaign. If I were 20 years younger, I’d think that’s cool. Though the system does actually sound interesting. If you are interested in classic fantasy, maybe check out Alpha Duo. You can download the base version of the rules system for free. Then there’s the old school fantasy game Chronicles of the Secret Time from Italy. Which looks very cool and is worth having a look.
Fans of rule-lite game should check out Vizor with it’s dynamic character creation and utilization of cards, and/or Runt which focuses on a narrative approach and is genre agnostic.
If you open up the Storybox! project, you’ll get 8 narrative games in one kickstarter, and with Our Innermost Thoughts you’ll have 5 experience to explore yourself.
Maybe you are looking for a gamebook? Then check out the classical game book Myrrk Book One. It sounds legit. The Dark Village isn’t classic at all, but I think it is a good fit for the category and worth checking out.
Next to all those games, I think you should give the Campo de Mitos setting by Paco Jaen a chance. It takes the mythos to a place in Gibralta and looks very cool. The Sinful RPG sourcebook will enable to add sinful sprincles into your scenario. Where I am just in love with the design of the Elixier Dice. They got swirly, glittery stuff in them… beautiful! Though the dice from Dice Macabre and Dawn and Dusk got nice designs as well. Well, and if you are prone to say No More Dice,… that project offers an abacus like alternative to roling. It might be among the Things Heroes Say? Which is a collection of RPG phrases.
Take a look at these and many, many more cool projects overe here:

I present to you the new Crowdfunding Collection #144, including every tabletop rpg project started between 05/24 and 06/14.

This week I feature the projects of the past three weeks since my last Collection left up until last Sunday. You will find that some projects are at an impending end.

There are two projects from Germany that I would like to briefly mention. On the one hand Rettet den Brettspielplatz aims to save a game cafe in Berlin. Which is a nice cause to support. Another projects offers Gelatinous Soap, that include dice. It is just from German, and offers an English project page. Check it out.

Onto the game projects, Alice is Missing offers a fascinating approach. The narrative game, focused on the disapperance of a highschool girl, is played via text messages, while still being a ttrpg. Which is quite novel. Then there is a bit more lighthearted game with Garden of the Giants. You’ll take the roles of mice in a magical gard, being up for some small adventures. The game offers a lot of ready made scenarios and plot, including phases of the day with an active gardner. Check it out. Scaling up from a garden to a hills, The Hike That Binds Us RPG tackles the topic of the survival of a longterm hike. The d6 game has a really, really cool presentation of game material, and I am actually in. If you are looking for a superheroe game, that’s colorful and ain’t „darkque“, take a look at Super High School RPG. While designed for the whole family, it does ~ in my opinion ~ don’t look ‚to focused‘ on kids or edgy teens. Then there is the Maximum Apocalypse RPG. Which offers a post-apo setting and where you can check out the d100 based rules in a quickstart. Maybe you want to check out the game for free? Then take a look at the Miracle RPG. It combines science and magic, and seems nice. There is a PKMN RPG, which I won’t feature in a bigger fashion for obvious copyright challenges.
If you like scyfy, check out the light OSR cyberpunk game Dancing With Bullets Under a Neon Sun. It really has cool looks. Though maybe you like some lowlevel, humrous SF, too? Then NerdBirds has you covered with strange birds in a narrative d6 game.
There are some games, that dip their toes into being a tabletoprpg, while having some other elements. Like Legends Of Dragons which is an almost normal ttrpg, with some quite strong card game elements. Even more of a tabletop game offers Mini Rogue. Basically going rogue-like dungeon crawling on a table. Well and last but not least, there is Eila and Something Shiny – a quite tabletopy-gamebook game.
If you prefer your gamebooks as good old game books, check out the Wanderer Gamebook+! It follow the tradition etablished by Lone Wolf and offers a cool fantasy adventure.
There are cool settings like Tug of Titans, which offers a system neutral city with intrigues and everything, or the Legendlore setting by Onyx Path, which brings the popular comic series to D&D 5E. If you like magical folklore, classes, rituals and more to your game, check out the Folk Magic of the Haven Isles supplement. Which is designed for the Midderlands game, but can be used for any fantasy group. Specific to KULT you can check out the Horror Guide & Scenario Collection or, if you want to supplement your Savage World game check out The Savage Sign 02. There are quite cool deck of cards like the Truly Wild Magic or Architects of the Deep sets. Well, and I like the The Electronic Age Core Dice, because they got stuff stuffed in.
Take a look at these and many, many more cool projects overe here:

I present to you the new Crowdfunding Collection #143, including every tabletop rpg project started between 05/17 and 05/24.

This collection spans back over 4 weeks and doesn’t include the last week. I still going to publish it, as next week more projects will have ended, and my current health state prevents me to add a full week of projects to complete it.
I hope you still enjoy the overview, and if you see a project you are interested in, act fast, it might be soon ending!

The Littlebox RPGs projects offers two roleplaying games in one small, tarotset sized box. The games are narrative, don’t require a gamemaster and are designed to be able to be played right out of the deck. The game Villagesong addresses change and leadership and the game Our Mundane Supernatural Life addresses the challenged of day to day challenges. I like the games, the concept and recommend you having a look at the project. Then there’s Tian Shang: Lone Wolf Fists, which serves ones need for high-octane KungFu action in a post-apocalyptic world. The system is designed to be fast and dynamic, while the setting reminds me of Fist of the North Star. Cool. Then there is The Epic of Dreams RPG. The game offers a fantasy setting and more interestingly some quite interesting mechanics. Like, you don’t need a character sheet and the system is based on guessing a number. Which might sound aloof, but it appears the game has been written and tested, thus I do recommend it.
If you are looking for a solo game, check out Red Bean: Dragon Slayer. It uses a poker deck with comic illustrations and I am strongly tempted to back it.
Larpers should check out the Crescendo Giocoso Ritornello collection of 12 small Larps. I backed, received and enjoyed the predessesor to the project, and thus wholeheartedly recommend it.
There are many more cool projects. For example the dynamic library dungeon The Stygian Library, the nice looking HYPERBOREA DICE and the FATUM set of cards. Fatum allows to for the creation of backgrounds for characters in fantasy games in general, as well as D&D 5E specifically. Something that I consider very cool, and where I am tempted.

I present to you the new Crowdfunding Collection #142, including every tabletop rpg project started between 05/10 and 05/17.

A week late, because I have had a turbulent life, the translation of the issue #142.

There are quite some cool projects, though I decided to start with The Troubleshooters. The game is inspired by and presents the optic of franko-belgian comics of the 60s, including the pulp action style and setting. It is being published and produced by Arkhane Asylum Publishing, a French ttrpg publisher, with access to cool illustrations. The game uses a precentile system and you can checkout its quickstarter. Next to this game, the Tiny d6 system family receives a new entry, or rather update with the second edition of Tiny Thunderscape. As the name suggests, the system is rather light and d6 based, and the game offers a fantasy steampunk setting. The makers are very experienced in running successful campaigns, and I recommend it. If you prefer more classic fantasy, you should take a look at the SURVIVE THIS!! project. It’s a d20 system that combines an OSR approach with modern mechanics. Plus, the description offers a lot of insight for those interested.
Then there are cool settings. For example the world of Trudvang, in all its glorious illustrations, which is adapted to be played with D&D 5E. If you like the tale of Frank Baum, are into pirates and Savage Worlds, you should check out Battle for Oz: Pirates. Dwellings & Driveways: Keep on the Cul-de-Sac! is a module that raised my interest, as it offers quite mundane adventures. It looks cool and I like the idea, I am sold on it once it is available in Germany. I am as well intruiged by the Roll & Play supplement, which adds some variety to your games in general, as well as Dauntless, which provides characters, backgrounds and more for 60s pulp settings. Maybe you want to add some „rocks“ into your game? In this case you should check out the Mineralogy Manual – and might scold me for calling those rocks. I am really tempted by the MONTANA MOSS dice. They got moss and other plant thingies inside and I really like the,. The Deck of Many Animated Spells tarot set or the artbook Dark Romanticism for Shadows of Esteren are cool too..

Fans developed character sheets for playing V5, offering formfillable PDFs for everyone to use. In this article I will presented an updated version

Markus W. created a new version of the character sheet PDFs I previously featured. They feature an improved structure, the selection of drop down menus has been extended and various other aspects got adapted. I like the sheet, and it is the one I am using for my Hecata character whos exploit I describe in the Hecata Diaries on WODnews.blog.
Though, let’s get to the stars, the character sheets::

If you are looking for the first version of this character sheets, you can check my previous article on the topic.

Nerdbert created very cool, brilliantly designed character sheets which allow for customization regarding your prefered style elements and clan, by the use of layers:

You will find the most recent state of the character sheets in the V5 ClanLayer folder at Google Docs. Though I will do my best to provide updates to this article or create a fresh one. If you like to see them in action, watch the video Vampire: the Masquerade – How to make a Character (V5 Workshop) by The Primogen.

Nerdbert does as well offer character sheets with a fan translation of the V5 sheet to German:

It’s based on a previous edition, though he is working on improving the English version and then updating the German one. You can chose to get all his German V5 sheets by downloading a Zip-file or take a look at this V5 ClanLayer folder at Google Docs.

If you wish for various other languages, like Polish, Spanish, Portuguese or others, Nerdbert would love to get a glossary or like original (extended) sheet to offer the sheets in various edition.

Pedro Stein Guerro created character sheets for non-player characters! They aren’t formfillable (yet?), though they are available in English and Spanish:

V5 NPC character sheets – English

V5 NPC character sheets – Spanish

You’ll find the original document including both sheets in one PDF at Google Drive.

I present to you the new Crowdfunding Collection #141, including every tabletop rpg project started between 04/26 and 05/10.

After some quite chaotic two weeks, the collection if back in a regular fashion, thus let’s get started.

I’ll start with Dragon Fighters by Luca De Marini. The game focus on fighters being involved in a kind of perpetual ongoing fight, like a tournament. The project offers unique visuals, that do point towards inspiration from games like Streetfighter and other beat’em ups, yet it doesn’t look like a simple carbon copy. At least not to me. The game offers various subsystems, and I am heavily tempted to back it, if I can find it in my budget. The project does still need some help, and I would recommend you’ll have a look at it. If you are looking for a fantasy game for the whole family maybe check out Lost in the Fantasy World. You’ll be playing a kid that has been moved from the real world to a fantastical realm. In regards of mechanics the game offers a narrative d6 system, The campaign is nicely colorful and you can already get the PDF. Thus, I recommend to have a look. Then there is the dark, modern Bloodlines & Black Magic RPG. Which offers a setting that reminds me of the World of Darkness, just that you get to play essentially crossover from the start and build in. The system is d20 and uses arcana cards, which makes it quite interesting, imho. I recommend the project, even as it is outside of my budget. You might enjoy the tech-noir approach of NEUROCITY. In which you explore a subterranean complet and topics of exentialism and psychology get address. The game seeks funding on IndieGoGo and Kickstarter in tandem. The last game is HardBoot a 5th ed D20 RPG, directed to celebrate the very first CGI cartoon. I haven’t seen the cartoon and don’t really feel engaged by the IndieGoGo project.
Fans of gamebooks will find that Destiny’s Role 2: Venom of Vortan offers to finance the third entry into the Destiny series. Then there’s Vala the Beast a boardgame like gamebook or a gamebooklike boardgame. It might be a fringe for the gamebook category, but I think it warrents to be including.
Of course there are many more projects. Fans of Mage: The Ascension will find that the M20 Technocracy Reloaded projects offers a brand new look at the Technocracy, the Web 3.0 and other fascinating aspects of Mage, that haven’t been explored in other books and needed – or could use – an update. It’s a cool book and if you are a fan of the WoD, check it out. Maybe the success will bring forth more books for M20, C20 or even x20 treatment for gamelines left out so far. Then there’s the Ekphrastic Beasts bestiary, which offers visually stunning monsters. There is the Fantasy City Sites and Scenes II to spice up your campaigns with the mentioned sites and scenes. I personally like the Witch Hunters adventure, a solo-scenario for D&D5E, which might be played with more players. You’ll find Dice and dungeons ITA Backpacks, Sidebags and enamel pins, a Cards Against the DM minigame with an inspirational aspect and The Adventurer’s RPG Tiles for creating caves.
You’ll find these and many more projects here:
