I present to you the new Crowdfunding Collection #175, including every tabletop rpg project started between 07/11 and 07/18.

I’ll start with Dreampunk, a surreal roleplaying game. As the name suggest, you’ll be playing a dreamer, who within their dreams, may interact with other dreamers. One might brave adventures, face nightmares and has to figure out whether they even wanna wake up again. The system is based on 78 uniquely designed, tarot sized cards, offers 9 playbooks for the players to choose from and can be played with, or without, a GM. I backed it, and consequently recommend it. Then there’s the newest game from Greg Stolze named DUELING FOPS OF VINDAMERE. The setting ist about fencing and being somewhat Bridgerton style, though the main focus appears to be on the mechanics. The game is designed to be played right out of the box, with zero prep, and no GM, sessions lasting somewhat between 1 and 2 hours. The further descriptions found in the video and in the text, remind me somewhat of his game „A Dirty World“, and I recommend you take a look. Fans of Science Ficiton rpg should have a look at Galaxies – The Game. It describes its system as rules-light, fast and easy to learn, and the setting seems nice. Plus, the core book got one covered with 100 adventure hooks.
In regards of the two fantasy ttrpg, let’s start with Crowns. The game offers a OSR set of rules, an adventure and a sandbox. With the OSR rules offering a unique combat system, and adjustments in the areas of monster design, character progression and healing. It’s presented in a nice, to the point magazin format, and I actually like the illustrations by Jacob Fleming – at least the cover one. The last full game to mention is Fallen Worlds. The game offers a postapocalyptic fantasy setting, with a focus on the fantasy aspect. It will come in two books, and judging by the pledge design it uses dice. If you are interested in a fantasy world that appears somewhat extensive, take a look.
In regards of gamebook, Jonathan Green is back with RONIN 47, a mecha vs. kajiu book from the ACE Gamebook series. I backed several of his other gamebooks, and do gladly recommend that you check it out. Even I am somewhat intruiged. Then there’s The Dragons Tears: Embers Fate gamebook. Uhm. It’s the first project of the creator, who hasn’t backed any other project (with his account). Plus, I’ll rate the plan to write a gamebook, including system testing, in 4 month ambitious. I personally won’t back it and I advice caution.
There are of course more interesting projects. Squeaks in the Deep will enrich both ttrpg Pugmire (dogs) and Monarchies of Mau (cats) with playable rats and mice and an adventure – in which you don’t have to play a rodent. I trust the creator and like the previous book. Thus, check it out! Other than that, Mörk Borg fans might enjoy the adventures in the KENNELS OF KARNAGE and I really like the design of the Dragon Tears Dice.
You’ll find these, and many more projects, here:

I present to you the new Crowdfunding Collection #174, including every tabletop rpg project started between 06/27 and 07/11.

Having had to pause last week, I managed to scrap a bit of time together, to get it done. Still, my small prelude, might be shorter than usual.

Let’s start with GhastBashers. A game in which you catch ghosts, ghostbuster style, using a narrative d12 system. Fans of superheroes get a D&D 5E ruleset based game with Capes & Crooks. If you like to design your own setting, you should check out Anyworld Tabletop Roleplaying System. Next to the rules required, it offers introductionary scenarios for quite some genre.
Fans of the old tentacled creature, can face him with Cursed Captains of Cthulhu swashbuckling style. Which is a somewhat fresh approach with a 4d6 based system. Those who prefer Cthulhu like it’s been done in the past, can get their serving of Call of Cthulhu Classic from Chaosium.
The HYPERBOREA 3E kickstarter aims to finance the new edition of the famous fantasy rpg, with quite some fans and thus funding already. Chromatic Dungeons appears to be a reaction to the current „new TSR controversy“, and uses a diverse set of creators to offer an OSR game with modern sensibilities in mind – basically aiming to actively include people. Then there is Highcaster, aiming to enable the players to shape up legends, using the „Caster System“ as previously seen in ttrpgs like The Great American Novel and The Great American Witch. Peace the RPG might not look much, going by the thumbnail, yet the project offers a broad and interesting looking description. I do recommend having a look. Then there is Fate of Dungeons, a game that aims to offer a fates based old school rpg. Sounds strange? Yet, it is what the pitch says.
If you like narrative games in the style of Fate and Numenera, and mechas, you got to take a look at The Tears of a Machine. If it weren’t for the system used, I would have backed it, as I quite like the theme. MEGALOS: Aetherological Crystalpunk sorts itself into the Science Fantasy genre and uses a narrative d20 system. For more infos, check out the project.
I am quite tempted to back the solo ttrpg Dwelling: A Solo Game for Ghosts. I like the horror theme, the exploration of a haunted house, and the interaction with the titular ghosts. Plus, its the first solo game, that I noticed, which features Safety Tools. Very cool! Then there is the solo game Adventure Squared. You get a solo ttrpg, journaling game and create maps. Three things in one project.
Last but not least we get to the gamebook category, in which we find Chasing Tail. A game in which one – as a furry – chases the tails of other furrys, and might engage in fun times. Which is why it has the „mature audience“ labe. Facinating.
Next to all those projects, there are the Deadly Skull Dice & Sunken Skull Resin Dice.

I present to you the new Crowdfunding Collection #173, including every tabletop rpg project started between 06/20 and 06/27.

The collection is back with a small number of very interesting projects. Let’s have a look at them.

I am quite enamored with Floria: The Verdant Way. The game is a translation of an Japanese ttrpg, by the team that brought Summon Skate to fruition. In Floria, you’ll play people who are actually called „Florias“. The towns are surrounded by a quite magical forests, which the Florias venture into, explore and collect herbs. Being Florias, they can utilize those herbs, integrate them into their bodies, to magical effects. The dice system is essentially 2d6 roll under, with a truly interesting system for using the herbs. Which involves drawing onto a grid. Take a look for yourself! You will find, that Not the End, has a more narrative approach. The game that was first published in Italian, before receiving a translation, sees one playing heroes. Those characters are described with words writting onto hexes within a matrix of hexes. Thus the system is named „HexSys“. It doesn’t use dice, but instead colored tokens. You can have a look at it via a quickstarter the creators provided. Check it out. The Tide Breaker RPG does take a cooperative approach to setting creation. The system uses a d6 based pool system, and is supported by other elements like „stunts“, „showstopper“ and others. Which looks all in all quite sound. You might find even more action in the superheroe game S5E, which is system wise based on the mechanics as provided by D&D 5E. The rulebook will offer you tools to create your own setting, and powered characters. You’ll find a „ready to be played“ setting in the „Midnight City“ book. Plus the package gets really rounded with a monster manual. The project looks nice, and I recommend having a look at it.
In regards of gamebooks, the Graphic Novel Adventures books combine the concept with comics. Something, that almost got me hooked.
There are of course more interesting stuff. If you like DCC, you might like to check the sourcematerial provided in the fancy looking project DCC Dying Earth or delve into the adventure named A Discordance with Dzyvatz. Fans of Trophy gold should probably have a look at Tides of a Dead Sea. Though, if you look for some system-neutral material, Oracle Issue 12 – Celtic Theme got you covered (tho you get 5E rules) as well as the Tabletops and Tentacles Magazine #3. In regards to the „solo game“, I wasn’t sure what to make of The Book of Asmodeus. It looks like a mixture of a gamebook, a book offering riddles and a phone app. I considered it quite interesting, and hence included it, even with the tenuous ttrpg connection.
You’ll find those, and more cool projects, here:

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.
