I present to you the new Crowdfunding Collection #114, including every tabletop rpg project started between 07/14 and 08/04.

While this collection is done on its supposed weekly schedule, the next one might get delayed a week, because of convention season. With that being said, let’s get started.
While the nuclear post-apocalyptic setting of HOPE RPG isn’t new, I am intruiged by the base building aspect and exploration system. Who along with being affordable did convince me to back the project. I did took a bit longer deciding to back Resist & Remember: Weimar. The topic and time period (1930 till ~1935) is more weighty and it needs to be done well, in a sensible fashion and in good taste. The presentation did in the end convince me and I strongly recommend having a look. The second edition of Fiasco: The Cinematic Game of Plans Gone Wrong on the other hand is quite an easy recommendation. The story game by Bullpit Games charmed me in it’s first edition and I am convinced the second edition will be just as good if not better. Plus, the box set is really nice. Thus, give it a chance. If you are maybe more into Fate or transform your gaming experience with changing robots, take a look at COMMANDROIDS: A WORLD TRANSFORMED.
You’ll find a quite some fantasy role-playing games as well. For example the Great Sword Tabletop RPG, which looks great and promises a quite tactical, yet still streamlined, system with a more traditional looking setting. Pathos: War of Gods does look cool as well, yet focuses on the question whether to serve the gods or see them toppled like the chars are Kratos. With leaning towards the toppled side of things. If you like the Redwall novels or playing furry adventures, you should check out Paws & Claws, which offers you a quickstarter to make your mind up. Otherworlds does offer a view into their rules and character creation as well, while offering more of a seemingly Anime inspired setting.
I sorted Rage-o-Meter among the hybrid games, as it does quite look like a mixture of card- or boardgame with rpg-elements. On the other hand Words without Harmony mostly ended up there, because it seems more firmly rooted in storytelling games. I think both deserve consideration.
There are other cool projects, like the Patreon for POCGamer who is creating supplementary stuff, the Naughty Dice Jail for your misrolling dice, projects like Dragon’s Breath and ‚Spirit Of‘ Atlantis where you can get potential inmates or stuff like the Role Playing Games Television or rather webseries.

I present to you the new Crowdfunding Collection #113, including every tabletop rpg project started between 07/14 and 07/28.

After a fabulous convention weekend the collection is back, covering two weeks and presenting you with no fewer than 59 projects. I’d like to briefly highlight the German translation of Alas for the sea So tief die schwere See which is currently being financed by System Matters Verlag. On that note, you migth as well like to check out the translation of Mythic Constantinopel.

Onto the English projects, I really like Magical Kitties Save the Day. Cats and kittens are a weakness of mine, the box looks fabulous and if it weren’t for the shipping I’d back it. Next to this I like Paper Arcade, which offers 4 small games, and equity-based pay for the creators. If you are more into gm-less games you should check out Inspire, where you will play spirits trying to achieve godhood. Then there’s Barbarians of the Ruined Earth, which utilizes the Black Hack, to offer an over-the-top post-apocalyptic setting. If you are more into Fate, take a look at Magonomia, which is set in the renaissance and includes authentic european lore. Well, and if you are into D&D 5E check out Forts & Frontiers, which takes a look at North America during the 17. and 18. century.
S.N.A.P.S. Heroes Boot Camp is a quite unusual game, in that it aims to provide help in improving the players social skills with theurapeutic means an an actual therapist participating in the game.
Then there is the „Break Kickstarter“ campaign, leading to quite some unusual games. There is Twelve Hundred Words, which offers 5 little games, about 200 words, which are focused on mental health. Next to a play-by-post campaign. I like the idea and did actually back it. With Brain Trust you’ll have a chance to see the development of a game up close and influence it as the campaign progresses. | BLACK | RED | WHITE | does promise three new games, based on the dreames of the author, whom you got to trust.  Chain Mail on the other hand is almost traditional, offering essentially a play-by-mail roleplaying campaign. Where one continues the story of another. The last entry is a bit morbid, if you don’t wanna read it, just jump to the next paragraph. The game The Tower is written and done, by the author of Killshot and High Plains Samurai, yet it will only be published once the author has literally died.
There are many more cool projects, like the audio gamebook The Vampire of Havena by Ulisses North America. The very stylish Kisarta setting and rulesbook für D&D 5E. A documentary movie named Let’s Play: Dungeons & Dragons Behind Bars and a big campaign for several people named Into the Mad Lands run by Mad Jay as GM utilizing Forbbiden Lands and B/X.
There are many more, interesting projects, which you’ll find here:

I present to you the new Crowdfunding Collection #112, including every tabletop rpg project started between 07/07 and 07/14.

This time around on regular schedule, yet as I’ll be attending a Convention next weekend, the next collection will likely be published in two weeks. Though, onto the projects on hand.

The Flashback RPG offers a Fantasy and Steampunk setting, along with a system that aims to provide a notable flashback mechanic for cinematic flair. I personally am most impressed by the idea that characters can climb a titan like foe and inflict damage to its various limbs. Then there’s Demigods which offers a modern day setting, in which your characters are the titular demi-gods. It’s a Powered by the Apocalypse game, and I am fascinated by the idea that you can choose the Pantheons you’ll want to have involved rather freely. If you enjoy Anime and Manga you might like to take a look at BESM Fourth Edition. The American game „Big Eyes, Small Mouths“ aims to emulate all kinds of genre with fast and cinematic rules. In addition you’ll find that next to the „normal“ edition, they do offer a „light“ edition, with only like 1/3 of the pages. Last but not least Ekphrasis is a narrative story game for two players. In which you’ll create surreal stories based on prose. I think it’s an interesting concept, the zine format is quite nice and you can get the PDF for a buck. Thus, take a look.
Then there is the D&D setting Kaldori Project, which I finde interesting, and the very fascinating looking Magumundi Bestiary . In regards of dice I think the Vulcan Forged Carbon ones do look cool, and am intruiged by the Random Character Generator Dice. Of course there are many more interesting projects, just take a look:

I present to you the new Crowdfunding Collection #111, including every tabletop rpg project started between 06/23 and 07/07.

My attendance to CCXP Cologne 2019 delayed the collection a week, thus you’ll find a total of 11 new role-playing games among other games.

There are story games like the gm-less moonflower, which utilizes tarot cards. The game is about a travel to the moon to plant and care about the flower. I got a somewhat melancholic feel from it and feel remembered of the anime Night on the Galactic Railroad. The second story game is HORROR STORIES, it’s card based and maybe rather on the fringe what can be counted as a rpg. I think it’s close enough to be included even if the cards are just used as story inspiration cards. If you are more into a good post apocalyptic setting you should check out Pirates of a Shattered World, that’s if you like to spice up swashbuckling with quite some strange stuff. If you are more down for a traditional post-apo experience you might be more interested in Scorched Earth, which allows you to build the post apocalyptic world of your wishes. Now, if you are more interested into modern games and spies you should check out The Spy Game and Super Secret Spy Agency both are inspired by D&D 5E. While Spy Games puts it into its name, the Spy Agency appears to highlight that it’s suitable for two player (GM + player) games. Now you might be into some medieval low fantasy setting, where you’ll find Chivalry & Sorcery for the European spice and Jordenheim to have some viking flavor. I personally do like and backed the Asphodel Complex. Which is a modern day horror game, with really cool maps and apparently an easy system. For your dose of superheroes you might like to check Hit the Streets, which explore street level heroes like Jessica Jones and the other Defenders. Last but not least L.O.R.E. is a game that tries a more universal to generic approach, offering a tool box for various settings.
There are as well many cool settings. Like Trinity Continuum: Aberrant by Onyx Path, which offers a fresh edition of the Aberrant of elderdays. My interest in Pulp Fantastic for Savage Worlds got spiked by the setting and Fateforge as well as Fight or Flight for D&D 5E are just beautiful to look at.
Of course there are many more interesting projects, just take a look:

I present to you the new Crowdfunding Collection #110, including every tabletop project started between 06/10 and 06/23.

My attendance to NordCon (a German role-playing game convention), delayed the collection for a week, thus it comes with none fewer than a total of 70 projects,… let’s get to them.

I’d like to briefly highlight the gamebook Kurai Jikan Eidolon (in German) which still requires some funding. I do know the author, followed his previous crowdfunding campaigns on a different platform and do recommend the project based on his skills as well as his ability to fulfill his projects.

Back to the English project, I did back Wicked Ones. The game uses a system based on Blades in the Dark and spices it up by allowing the players to essentially act as Dungeon Keeper. I liked both and thus couldn’t resist. Neither could I resist The Roleplayer’s Guide To Heists, which is a system-agnostic sourcebooks. I tend to regularly have groups trying to do a heist of one kind or another, and think the guide will be mighty useful.
Next to those two I almost backed a lot of more narrative games – which I grouped under „Story Game Role-Playing Games“. Like Hearts of Magic: Threads Entangled, a game that places the players in the tumultous conflicts between fey-nobles, arcane bureaucrats and anarchist witches – a setup that does sound fun. On a way more serious note I might back into Red Carnations on a Black Grave, which sees the players assume the role of French resistance member during World War II. The game takes a cue from Montesgur 1244 and offers historic characters to explore the conflicts. Then there’s the way more „fantastic“ Bleak Spirit, a game that aims to be a kind of (Dark) Souls-like. Yet, not by providing the players with very difficult fights, and more by providing a setting which melancholy and darkness is inspired by the one of the Souls series. Then there is What We Were, which shares the investigation of the characters personality with Bleak Spirits, while not being as bleak. Well, and there’s Troll’s Teeth, I have no idea how it works, but I am impressed by the use of wedges for the game mechanic.
With the, kind of avalanch, of fantasy rpgs, I found the Science Fiction approach of The ADVANCED kind of fresh. Among the fantasy games I like the design and graphics of Zafir: Tactical Roleplaying Game, Children of the Beast and The King of Dungeons – they do look very neat. Yet I do would recommand that you take a glance at Emberlord, Realm of the Livingstones, Age of Hunters, Awoken and The Awakening RPG as well, if you like fantasy.
There is an English gamebook by the name of Escape from Darkmoor and plenty more, interesting, cool projects worth checking out, just take a look:

I present to you the new Crowdfunding Collection #109, including every tabletop project started between 06/02 and 06/09.

This week I’d really like to highlight Adventures in Austerion. The game offers stunning artworks and is a fascinating mix of a boardgame and a tabletop rpg without loosing the latter identity. It’s available in English and French and I backed it the moment I found the project, I do highly recommend checking it out. Another interesting game is Sleepaway. The game focuses on campsite horror story and does so by using the Belonging Outside Belonging System from Avery Alder, thus I am tempted. If you are looking for a traditional approach, check out Dungeons & Delvers. It offers exploring dungeons, killing monsters and looting all with a system inbetween D&D 3E and 5E. If you like D&D5E you’ll find that both Amazing Adventures and Rocket Age RPG use the system. Amazing Adventures aims to offer a setting neutral approach, enabling you to play horror, SF, modern, pulp and games set in other genres. In contrast Rocket Age does focus on the titular genre. Battlestations DIRTSIDE isn’t a D&D 5E yet am wonder how much of an RPG is it at all, as game set in a SciFi setting boarders the line of board- and tabletop roleplaying game. Native American Role-Playing Game is a more ttrpg and has a very interesting pitch, yet the presentation of the project took my enthusiasm down and I haven’t got trust that it will deliver. Stormforged on the other hand looks way better and appears to deliver a solid fantasy game.
There are more cool projects like Necronomiconis by Artisano Del Reyes (on Kickstarter and Verkam) which aims to produce a stunningly beautiful Cthulhu acessoire book. Then there’s the French urban fantasy game Cities and Crimes, which I would have backed in a blink of an eye, were they to deliver to Germany. Thus I have to hope that enough French, Belgian and Swiss gamers back it so it comes to be.
There are many, many more cool crowdfundings, see for yourself:

I present to you the new Crowdfunding Collection #108, including every tabletop project started between 05/27 and 06/02.

This collection contains a bunch of role-playing crowdfundings I am interested in. Like Rust Hulks which offers space exploration trucking style – a mixture of Alien, Firefly with parts of Star Wars – while being Powered by the Apocalypse. Which is an enticing combination. I am as well tempted by Quietus, a role-playing game that aims to provide „melancholic horror“ in the style of movies like Oculus or The Strangers. It’s fitted for smaller group of one to two players plus a GM and is designed to be experienced in One -Shots, system-wise it’s one of the first „Powered by the Dark“ systems – named after Blades in the Dark – I’ve noticed. Speaking of Blades, there is the BLADE RPG, while being a fantasy game I am still drawn in by the beautiful artwork, an interesting system and the sympathetic video presention.
The StoryMaster’s Tales „Weirding Woods“ is the first of three… I’ll call ‚em „hybrid rpgs“. With Weirding Woods being more traditional and basically combinig tabletop rpg with board game elements in a fantasy setting. Escape in the Dark on the other hand provides a Science Fiction setting and offers an interesting mix of tabletop rpg, game book and Hands of Fate (the videogame, imho). Last but not least of the three is CircleTales Adventures, an interesting storytelling game in the more literal sense.
If you like Larp and Poker, take a look at The Deal – which aims to bring both together. I personally do recommend the Patreon of Blood on the Thames. They do offer really cool V5 actual plays and I think their efforts deserve support. If you like The Dark Eye, the translation of the famous German rpg, you should considering checking the Magic of Aventuria sourcebook by Ulisses – from my understanding an integral part to the enjoyment of the setting and game.
There are, of course, many more cool projects, just take a look:

I present to you the new Crowdfunding Collection #107, including every tabletop project started between 05/12 and 05/27.

After a small break and the fantastic Larp experience Club Babylon Schwarz, I had a small delay, yet present to you the collection in full.

Among the German projects you can see that ICONs RPG Assemble Edition and Savage Worlds Abenteuer Edition are receiving a translation if funded. Next to those the pre-order for Malmsturm – Länder des Sturms is started, it isn’t exactly a crowdfunding, yet imho as a original Fate setting and game it deserves a shoutout.
There are plenty English games as well. Like Dark Trails, which caught my eyes because of the cool sugar skull thumbnail design and essentially promises Deadlands with a DCC ruleset. ‚TWAS -The RPG before Christmas is a game based on the game book by the same game book. It does offer a rules light system and aims to enable players to delve into legends and fairy tales. Then there’s Gate Watch, a small, card-based, GM-less game in which players explore what lays behind the titular gate.
I am backing Dust Wardens, which is a Powered by the Apocalypse game, which explores queere communities on a road trip during the post-apocalypse. The fact that its offered in zine form makes it rather inexpensive. Then there’s Hearts of Wulin a PbtA games that offers Wuxia action. Then there is Harsh Generations which explores a fallen America with a mix of PbtA and Fate mechanics.
Among the Fantasy games I would like to highlight Pirates of Pugmire by Onyx Path. It offers cool pirate setting with dogs, and cats, and birds exploring the high seas. Then there’s the red box of Dungeons & Delvers offering classical and Heola: The Starborn offering low fantasy. If you like your fantasy to be dark & metal you might rather – or in addition – have a look at MÖRK BORG, DEATHROLL or Sideralia.
Next to those there are SF games, like Zoetrope. Zoetropes offers time traveling adventures that are fun, card based and rules-light. If you like to explore the edges of known space you might give the OSR, Black Hack game Golgotha a go. While if you are into retrofuture Cyberpunk and fitting 90s anime you should check out Hard Wired Island. Last but not least Vintage Space promises optimistics disco-era SciFi.
There are of course plenty more interesting, engaging, cool projects. A gamebook named Twisty Little Passages, exciting settings like Ultramodern for D&D 5E, dice projects like the nifty Dice of the Giants or the eatable Sweet Rolls, there are Gamer Pens, a Sunset to Sunrise Larp set in the World of Darkness and many, many more projects!

I present to you the new Crowdfunding Collection #106, including every tabletop project started between 04/28 and 05/12.

As I had to fight, and am fighting, some health issue the collection got delayed a week, which is why it sport a big number of very cool projects with no fewer than 15 rpgs being funded.
The only game I backed though is A Cool and Lonely Courage, in the groups takes on the roles of women of the resistance in France during the war. Another rpg tackling history is Making History, which offers not one but three games with two set in the past. The games are short and concise, which I find interesting. I’m as well interested in Mud, Blood, & Glory, which is a game set in the Wild West, with seemingly more traditional mechanics, which I got starred too.
Another game that I got starred is Afterlife. Taking on the role of dead people trying to find out who they were in a surreal adventure sounds interesting. I do think that the approach of Facing the Titan which focus on the cost of the fight against Titans more than the tactic is interesting to. As is the Orpheus Protocol which offers a more traditional Urban Fantasy setting. Then there’s the Advanced: Pandemonium with a dystopian ScyFy fantasy Setting and the rather simple and fun S3RPG game. If you like science fiction you can look forward to the Traveller Fifth Edition, if you are more into Cyberpunk have a look at GeneFunk 2090 or if you’re more into SyFy take alook at Flotz. Fantasy enthusiast on the other hand can select from Five Torches Deep, Dimensions, Far Away Land and Escape from Orodor.
There are many more interesting project, like the Patreon of Eric Franklin for the Kicksnarker community, the Kingmaker project by Paizo on the GameOnTabletop platform, the Leather D20 Dice Bag Kit offering a do-it-yourself project for creating dice bags, a Dice Charger for lumicent dice, the LumaCast to literally luminate area of effects and many, many more:

I present to you the new Crowdfunding Collection #105, including every tabletop project started between 04/21 and 04/28.

In this collection you’ll find the game A Town Called Malice, a game that aims to replicate the atmosphere of Nordic Noir stories. It does so by using the system of Home by Dark, a narrative one that might be compable to Fiaso. Once Upon a Time in Jianghu on the other hand offers a Powered by the Apocalypse take on Wuxia Action. Where as Spaceships & Starwyrms brings you space action with mechanics inspired by D&D 5E.
Then there’s Space Cats, a Fate based game about the titular space faring cats that’s designed to be suitable for kids. It has the added bonus that – given it funds – the funds will help real kittens. Fate of Cthulhu is another Fate project, which handels the Mythos. Though if you ain’t in the USA you can’t get the physical book through the project. If you like Fantasy RPGs there are Paths: World of Adia and First Kings. I personally do like Charmed & Dangerous: A Princess Adventure Game, where one plays different princesses – though am not sure how much of an RPG it is.
You’ll find lots of other cool projects, like the French Bitume, just take a look:
