I present to you the new Crowdfunding Collection #89, including every tabletop project started between 11/25 and 12/09.

Quite some interesting projects have went live within the last two weeks. For example Tale, a fantasty rpg with some very interesting illustration and a solid project design. Though in conversation with fans of fantasy rpgs Low Fantasy Gaming is well worth having a look. Well, and I consider the design the game Queste nice.
I am not as much smitten by the looks, but by the science fiction setting and game system of Termination Shock by Greg Stolze. The setting should be accessible to new players and the idea to read several information from one roll, looks enticing. I am considering backing it. Nibiru is more to my taste in visually, yet the system isn’t exactly what I am looking for, though I do think it is working and solid. Check it for yourself.
I found it difficult to categorize the two games which I sorted under „RPG-adjenct games“. On the one hand there is Situations, which sees players collaboratively creating a story, though without feeling like an actual rpg or even story game rpg. The Noticeboard is somewhat of a more traditional boardgame, yet according to its creator, with quite some options to utilize it for tabletop rpg.
Next to those I got somewhat intrigued by Into the Wyrd, a horror setting for D&D.  With Nile Empire you’ll find a supplement for Torg and Vagabond’s Cyclopedia one for Vagabond’s of Dyfed.
Though there are many, many more supplements, adventures and other cool projects:

I present to you the new Crowdfunding Collection #88, including every tabletop project started between 11/04 till 11/25.

As I’ve returned from my US vacation where I attended the The Night in Question Larp this collection of projects spans three week and a total of 75 new and fresh projects.

There are two projects located in Germany but available in English. You’ll find impressive looking gaming table with the HÜNE Spieltisch and D&D 5E miniatures and cards with Canitaurs & Felitaurs.

The section of new role-playing games host an astounding amount of fresh science fiction or at least syfy projects. Thus one can play a space faring scoundrel in Never Tell Me The Odds, explore an AI and discover yourself in the more transhumanist game Become and experience memetic horror with After The War. Then there is Mutant: Elysium creating another entry to the Mutant: Year Zero series, where I am personally are more inclined to wait for the German translation. FlipTales offers an interesting, little Fantasy RPG well suited for kids. Well and Rockopolis offers to get into the Kickstarter late via the means of IndieGoGo.
Amongst the settings I found Crystal Heart for Savage Worlds endearing. It offers a colorful setting, with superpowered characters who are inflicted with maybe just a speck of insanity..
The most interesting supplements for me were Wyrd of Stromgard, which builds upon Dungeon World and Occult Philosphy that massively extends the setting of Shadow of the Demonlord..
You’ll find many, many more cool games, books, dice and other projects. Just take a look:

I present to you the new Crowdfunding Collection #87, including every tabletop project started between 10/22 till 11/04.

November has seen the start of an staggering amount of fresh projects, 70 in total and no less than 20 new, english RPG games.

Amon all those projects I backed no less than seven and got quite some more starred.
One of the first I backed and would like to recommend was Nahual. I followed its development since the creators worked on it on Patreon and am fascinated by the Urban Fantasy with a distinct Mexican touch. Well, and I do still fancy powered by the apocalypse games. Then there is Kamigakari – God Hunters, a translation of an Japanese RPG. Which offers cool artworks, promises interesting action in an Urban Fantasy setting and the system looks solid. Thousand Arrows does as well put its focus on Japan and Asia, though more from a historic to fantasy point of view. Considering its done with PbtA I couldn’t resist.
Thousand Year Old Vampire had me pretty much at „Vampire“. Though I am as well intruiged by the solo-gaming approach and by the fact that one gets to play their Vampire for a thousand years. Making it a „must back“ next to my buzzword. Never Going Home addresses the horrors of World War I and does mix in some cthulhoid horror. While the Cthulhu factor wasn’t exactly a selling point for me, the presentation convinced me that its done in taste and quite fascinating. Thus I pledged for it. Four Ways to Die in the Future focuses on death and the finality of life in a very serious, earnest approach. The four games are interesting, even though I do consider at least one is to intense for my liking. Yet the other games and the way how the topic is approach, that it is approached, makes it a „must pledge“ for me.I do recommend all the games I pledges to whole heartily.
Next to those I backed Chicago By Night – for Vampire: The Masquerade 5th Edition which isn’t a game but a source book for V5. I am a massive fan of Vampire, I do enjoy the 5th Edition and just ran about 14 to 16 games during SPIEL. Thus I eyed this project it so closely that I managed to be back number 2. The book does not only offer some metaplot advancement, provides the city of Chicago as a playground with many story hooks but will introduce the Lasombra as a playable clan. The first two stretch goals included some really interesting expansion of the folios and the fourth stretch goal does enhance the book as well. Plus the books will be available in regular retail! I am super hyped and do hope that you might consider it too.
Among the projects which I almost backed is After the End. A French game that offers a fascinating mis of boardgame elements, standing campaign play and role-playing. I spoke with the creators (during SPIEL) and was quite fascinated. Die Laughing by Craig Campbell is a little, charming horror rpg. Considering the creator did good things with Capers I do recommend taking a look. Another interesting game is Black Iron.
I’d like to (very) briefly address the German projects. So nicht, Schurke! is the translation of „No Thank you, Evil!“ which I would have backed, if I have had kids. Fallen Worlds is a small SF/endtime games. While  Hexenjagd offers a supplement for HeXXen 1733.

You’ll find plenty more, cool, engaging games, supplements, adventures and rather unique to weird stuff (socks!),… just have a look:

I present to you the new Crowdfunding Collection #86, including every tabletop project started between 09/25 till 10/22.

As I had to take a health related break a total of 114 new projects related to tabletop rpg got started, about 26 of those are new games. Because of the sheer amount I will keep the teaser text to those projects I actually backed or very much consider backing. Which means that you’ll find a lot of big projects within the list, that I haven’t mentioned.

Thus my favorite project so far is Orun. The RPG produced by New Agenda Publishing offers an afro-centric SciFy setting which I do find very fascinating and unique. The system seems okay and I am intrigued by their proposal for character creation. Thus I gladly pledged to it and do highly recommend to check it out.
I did as well back D.O.U.S – Dice of Unusual Size to complete my set of cool looking translucent teal dice with strange sides. I was very happy with the previous kickstarter, having my dice and with the communication with the project creator, and do recommend this one. I did as well get close to back the Pride Flag dice.
In regards of the German projects I would like to give a small shout out for the new edition of Spherechild and for the Frosty Pen&Paper Online Patreon.

There are literally over a hundred more projects, which I invite you to check out:

I present to you the new Crowdfunding Collection #85, including every tabletop project started between 09/10 till 09/25.

Given I had to take a week long break, I present more than 72 fresh tabletop rpg crowdfunding projects. Including quite some from Germany, France and Spain.
I did back the German translation of Itras By, do feel tempted by HANDBÜCHER DES DRACHEN II, and the french games MACCHABÉES and MANTRA : ONIROPUNK caught my attention, as did Longue-Ville a richly illustrated book presenting a setting that could  fit a game.
Safe from this little excursion in different languages there are many, great English projects and games. Thus if you liked Watership Down, you might be happy that Bunnies and Burrows is aiming to fund its third edition. Alternatively you could take a look at Rodent Rangers, which aims to be kid friendly. If you like to play more bunnies, other animals or even humans, take a look at The Forest Hymn & Picnic. Which features a system created by the designer of Shadow of the Demon Lord.
If you wonder how Italians would imagine a fantastic Italy based on Rome, checkout Lex Arcana. Next to the aforementioned quirk it looks cool and reads solid. Things from the Flood is a continuation to Tales of the Loop and has the characters discover mysteries, aliens and corporate misshieve in the 90ties. Just like Tales it features art by Stålenhag. Return to the Stars makes a jump forward and offers optimistic Science Fiction running on Fate Core. Going back Castle and Crusaders as well as The Epic of Dreams do give you your fantasy kick. C&C in more traditional fashion, the Dreams in a more story game way. Alternatively you might rob the sea with North Sea Epilogues or have fun with yourself and Avalon’s Solo Adventure system.
There are many, many more interesting projects and trying to list them would likely bore you, thus just take a look:

I present to you the new Crowdfunding Collection #84, including every tabletop project started between 09/02 and 09/10.

My favorite project in this collection is the Dawnline RPG. The players assume the roles of vampires who try their best to protect and guide a bigger flock of humans, ever escaping from the nearing light. While the vampires have to rely on the humans for sustenance, the humans have to rely on vampires to be protected against monsters and aided. Which is a very interesting take on the genre, helped by the fact that the creator felt inspired by works like Vampire Hunter D and Darkes Dungeon. The 3d6 system appears solid and there are some intriguing mechanical idea. The project features cool illustrations, the creator has experience in delivering project. Plus: No shipping cost. I do recommend the project.
Rockopolis is a translation of an Italian game. As suggested by its name the player assume roles of band members and do their best to rock the stage. I do like the idea and the systems – including stuff like various muses – does look interesting. Something Is Wrong Here on the other hand is a game aiming to provide a gaming experience along the experience David Lynch delivered. The design aims for an intense, emotional game experience and if you like story games, take a look. If you like your story games more traditional, you should check out Impulse Drive. It sports a science fiction setting and is Powered by the Apocalypse. A SF rpg with a different twist is HC SVNT DRACONES 2.0, where one plays kind of animal like „Aliens“ or rather surviving and long mutated creatures. I did like the first edition and think the new one is worth having a look. If you like it more traditional,.. Advanced Fighting Fantasy does kickstart Demons of Doom, which might be interesting for fans of fantasy games.

There are tons of other cool projects. Like Dortoka a supplement facilitating the creation of a city in OSR and PbtA. The Reality Shard and Diffusion dice do look great, imho.  The Retro Dice have a unique design, done by Mark Kelly and do offer a stretch goal with Mark Rein-Hagen. The Mad Dice are apparently color changing. Well, and there are tables, nice and useful card decks and many, many more projects.

In regards to the projects in various languages. The French corebooks are quite beautiful to look up, the Italian and Spanish offer interesting insights and the German one collects to translate a Starfinder book. I did drop the Portuguese platform from the collection, as I noticed that the platform doesn’t sort by date and as my time/headspace is limited. If you like to see a Portuguese project in here, just drop me a message.

Tho, I just stop talking and let you have a look (you might like to be quick, as quite some project got rather tight timeframes):

I present to you the new Crowdfunding Collection #83, including every tabletop project started between 08/21 and 09/02.

While there are no fewer than 8 role-playing games within this collection, I didn’t manage to come up with sub-categories in which I could group two or more. Some projects that I like to mention are:
Prism which offers a diceless system and is more of a story game. It does provide an aquatic setting in which one plays merfolk  and it does explore relationship, religion and intimacy. It’s a quite fascinating little game, at least in my opinion. Triskelion is a Science Fiction rpg, which uses an action-fueled, optimistic space opera take on the genre. Systemwise the Exodus system is employed, which has been developed based on OSR games.  Dystopia Rising is the newest project by Onyx Path, which aims to realize the second edition of the game using the Storypath System. The system has already been utilized for both SCION and Trinity and the setting has a big, active fanbase among larpers. Its take on the post-apocalyptic zombie genre isn’t to unfamiliar but yet not trite. I personally feel tempted and got the project up for later review. The Jack Hack basically does a Black Hack take on the Victorian setting. Offering several takes whether its investigating the White Chapel murders, uncovering cults or other themes.
The other RPGs are as well intriguing, for the the most part, and I do recommend to have a look at them. There are two gamebooks within the collection as well. SNAKES and GESTAPO attempts to get a translation of a book funded that has been originally published in French. While I didn’t like the first project as much, this one looks better done and actually interesting. The other gamebook is Midnight Legion, which I think is cool as well.
There are plenty more projects, from adventures, enamel pins to tiles and more, which I do recommend to have a look at:

I present to you the new Crowdfunding Collection #82, including every tabletop project started between 07.29 and 08.21.

Given I traveled to GenCon and caught a cold, the collection returns after a three week pause with a total of 67 projects. I couldn’t take a close look at all projects, yet most of the projects look great.
I personally backed the The Next World supplements for Legacy: Life Among the Ruins. Given my experience with the core book, I am really looking forward to getting those settings in print.
Another project that caught my eye was Domina Magica. It’s addressing the Magical Girl Anime genre and looked intruiging. Tough as a fan of horror games I do as well got an eye on House of Keys as well as Era: The Chosen.
You might like to check the many science fiction tabletop games as well as the fantasy ones, or the others I haven’t mentioned. It’s quite an impressive collection. There are plenty more projects, though I will only briefly mention the 72 Lesser Key Solomon Demons coins, which look amazing, and the French game Meurtre which might serv as an motivation to polish my French. Yet,… take a look for yourself:
