Recently I was made aware of the kickstarter.com website were anyone can start a project that hopefully will be funded by friends and complete strangers.

I thought of starting this geeklist with all the RPGs that need funding over at kickstarter.com.


Feel free to add anything of interest that you find.



Consider this geeklist closed It has been running for nearly two years and keeping track/finding stuff became difficult. Instead post here: Kickstarter RPG Projects - 2013

I helped back this one. I'm really looking forward to getting my copy. This will probably be the first RPG my son and I play together.

Chronicles of The Void

What is Chronicles of the Void?

Chronicles of the Void (CotV) is a Pen&Paper RPG where each player assumes the role of one of the iconic heroes in the CotV Universe who are brought to life with vivid artwork, rich back stories, and compelling personalities. The player will ultimately decide the fate of their character, as they collect elite equipment and customize themselves by earning experience which will be distributed in an intricate nexus of abilities that are completely unique for each character.

The game is built on the foundation of an innovative cinematic game engine which defines two major systems for handling fast paced action: the One Breath Combat (OBC) and Vehicle Assault and Pursuit (VAP) systems. The OBC system engages players in skirmishes which encourage coordination of actions and the speedy resolution of events which keeps players in the moment and prevents the lag of complex sequential actions found in the D20 System. The VAP system captures the excitement piloting your own customizable star fighter into battle. CotV trims the fat off of the tabletop gaming experience and cuts straight to the action with a strong emphasis on ease of play and opens up a new frontier in customization and depth.

Quote:
WESTERN. WUXIA. WILD.

Imagine: A fantasy world, but not one based on Medieval/Dark Ages European culture and myth, but rather one based on the inspirations of the Spaghetti Western and Chinese Wuxia. Add steampunk elements. Mix well.

A fantasy world that's Stephen King's The Dark Tower meets The Storm Riders meets Deadwood meets Afro Samurai meets The Wild Wild West meets Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon meets Django meets The Adventures of Brisco County, Jr. meets House of Flying Daggers and more.

A fantasy world that's explored through a constantly-updated website, a tabletop role-playing adventure game, a web series, artwork, fiction, comics and much, much, more. A fantasy world that is shaped by its own fan community.


http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/Adamant/far-west-western...

Goal: $5000
Deadline: August 28

EDIT: FUNDED within 24 hours...

SECOND EDIT: An additional Sourcebook has been added to the mix if the total reaches $10,000.

THIRD EDIT: The $10k total was easily reached. The next goal is $18.5k with the incentive being a town supplement in PDF.

FOURTH EDIT: As of 8/19, this has set a new Kickstarter RPG record and stands at $32k+ funded. Several more incentives were added along the way.

FINAL EDIT: The deadline ended with the total at $49,324!

LEGENDS & LABYRINTHS™ uses a unique blend of game design from throughout history and all the editions of various RPGs (making it a "universal game" that allows you to once again play with your friends who prefer different incarnations of the most famous fantasy roleplaying game) and storytelling (from Origins-Award® nominated lead designer and Hollywood screenwriter/producer George Strayton) to create a fast and flexible tabletop fantasy game system of roleplaying, exploration, and constant danger, interlaced with unique “immersion” mechanics to enhance the experience of descending into dungeons, exploring uncharted wilderness, or saving the innocent from certain doom. These roleplaying mechanics reward players for immersing themselves in their character's three-dimensional personality as well as the world in which they exist, a game element never before seen in games like Dungeons & Dragons.

Age Past: Main Role Playing Game Rulebook

Quote:
I plan to use the opportunity Kickstarter can provide to put out a full color, high quality hard bound book. I have already invested a lot of money and time and just need a few more funds to help get over the hump and move onto publishing.

Contents of the 300+ page book: 130+ powers (most can be taken 4 times), 140+ separate spells, 75+ monsters.

Comprehensive game tools: character sheets, GM screen, initiative and monster cards, companion cards, printable world maps.

As you can see, I already have some great art. The digital pictures shown above are just a small sample of what has been created. Funds received will help buy more great color artwork and pay to keep the web site up and be used for further development. Minimally, I have spent what I am hoping to receive from the Kickstarter Community. I am very invested in the project, both in time and money.

Adventurer Conqueror King

From the website:

Quote:
Autarch’s Adventurer Conqueror King system fulfills the promise of the original fantasy role-playing game by providing comprehensive, integrated support for play across all levels of a campaign. Any referee who has ever checked for random encounters, and every player who’s has rolled a twenty-sided dice to hit a wandering monster, will find the rules of Adventurer Conqueror King as elegant, familiar, and comfortable to wield as an heirloom sword. The system’s cutting edge is the way every table, chart, and assumption in the game encodes Gygaxian naturalism, Arnesonian barony-building, and the designers’ own experience of hundreds of sessions playing and running old-school games. With Adventurer Conqueror King, you get both the versimilitude and consistency of thorough world-building with the power of improvisation and discovery through play. We look forward to seeing what you do with these tools!

Conquest of the Universe RPG

Quote:
Conquest of the Universe is a science fantasy role-playing game inspired by classic space opera, planetary romance, and myth-telling, as told through comic strips, serial films, novels, and blockbuster cinema. I approach this project as a re-invisioning of the inspirational sources, rather than a nostalgic visitation. My vision is something visually and stylistically original.

Luchador: Bright Lights and Barbwire RPG

Quote:
In a world filled with strange horrors and impossible realities heroes will arise. From the squared circle of the wrestling ring comes the Luchadors. These fighters have had their mettle tested in the ring. They champion the common man in the battle against tyranny and corruption! Luchadors stare down the horrors that lurk in the dark! Don the mask and dive into danger.

Luchador: Way of the Mask is a role-playing game that allows you to take on the persona of a masked wrestler of your own design and grapple with the forces of evil. Inspired by the films of El Santo, Blue Demon, Los Campeones Justicieros and others this game embodies the thrilling adventure of the movies and the grueling action of the ring.

We are seeking funding to produce the third book in the series Luchador: Bright Lights and Barbwire. In this supplement the Luchadors travel north of the border in their quest for action. Here wrestling draws unheard of attention but often at an indescribable price. Experience the spectacle of the corporate federations. Survive the brutality of the hardcore leagues. Between the glamorous and the gruesome the Luchador treads the path of honor and heroism. This supplement details new specialties, new character classes, Championships, valets, hardcore wrestling, and the Knights of Terror adventure.

Land of Seed and Blossom, for Wu Xing: The Ninja Crusade

Quote:
Take a closer look at the Land of Seed of Blossom, the exotic land of splendor that lies to the southeast of the Izou Empire. Meet the seven unique ninja clans that call the nation their home and learn more about their culture and their current Uprising against the Izou Empire’s occupying forces. New adventures and powers await within!

Wu Xing: The Land of Seed and Blossom is the second sourcebook for the highly-rated RPG from Third Eye Games, Wu Xing: The Ninja Crusade. In this game, players take on the role of rival ninja clans that must work together in order to avoid destruction that rains upon them from the Izou Empire. Wu Xing: The Land of Seed and Blossom changes the game and gives you a glimpse at what it is like to live in another nation outside of this central conflict. The game as a whole takes elements from some of my favorite anime: Naruto: Shippuuden, Ninja Scroll and Avatar: The Last Airbender. As with the other Wu Xing books, Wu Xing: The Land of Seed and Blossom has the artwork of Tazio Bettin for the primary clan images. We are likewise commissioning additional pieces right now to fill the rest of the book, as soon as we’re done writing more of it.

Heartbreak & Heroines

From the designer of Wandering Monsters High School:

Quote:
Heartbreak & Heroines is a fantasy roleplaying game about adventurous women who go and have awesome adventures -- saving the world, falling in love, building community, defeating evil. It's a game about relationships and romance, about fairy tales and feminism.

You play a fantasy heroine (or hero, if you prefer) whose heart has been broken. She's experienced some loss so great that she's taken up her sword, her tome, her staff, or her wand and walked away from her place in society -- by becoming one of its defenders, fighting back the darkness that endangers everyone.


Goal: $3,000 by August 17th

Welcome to the magical Land of Skcos, where anything can happen and it often does! Skcos is a world full of amazing adventures, where mystical creatures await you and the only limit is your own imagination!

The land of Skcos is inhabited by all manner of things, but primarily its inhabitants belong to a race of ever changing, always interesting creatures called Soppets. Soppets are a magical breed of intelligent, funny, thrill seeking socks.

Yes, you read that correctly. Socks. Soppets start off as simple socks, laying about the land with little purpose and less life. It takes the creativity and individuality of a person to give a Soppet life.

Dinosaurs...in SPAAACE!

Quote:
Dinosaurs. Rockets. The 1950s. What do they have in common? They're saturated with coolness. But can they somehow work together?

Only two answers are possible: Yes, and HELL YES.

Dinosaurs...in SPAAACE! runs on the Token Effort engine, a tried and tested rules-set that privileges pratfalls over point-stacking and mania over min-maxing. It quantifies humor and rewards you whether people are laughing with you, or at you. No really, Token Effort tramples drunkenly over all difficulties with honey-badger insouciance: You can download the whole thing free at http://www.gregstolze.com/inSpaaace.zip and see for yourself.

The Dance and the Dawn: A Theatrical Experience

Quote:
Once upon a time...

This game tells the tale of six beautiful Ladies who came to the court of the Queen of Ice for a midnight ball, and there danced with seven noble Lords, all in pursuit of the True Love that could heal their hearts.

The conclusion of that tale is up to you.

The Dance and the Dawn is a theatrical experience for 15 players and an Orchestrator.

About the Medium

A theatrical experience -- also known as “interactive literature” or as “live-action roleplay” -- is essentially a play without a script or an audience. It is a chance to live out a story, guided by the game rules but ultimately directed only by one's own thoughts and actions.
About the Game

The players take on the roles of nobles in a gothic fairy-tale realm, convened for a great ritual dance, who have one night to find love and redemption. Six players become the Ladies of Ash, who have come to the midnight ball in hopes of healing their heartbreak; seven become the cold, proud Lords of Ice who are there waiting for them, and who struggle with tragedies of their own; and the other two become the Queen of Ice and the Duke of Ash, the enigmatic figures who have arranged the whole affair. The game is an event that lasts about four hours, which will be taken up with dancing and dueling and courtly intrigue...and, of course, with the eternal hope of romance and joy.

Animal Crime

Quote:
Animal Crime is a role-playing dinner party game, at times grim and at times hilarious, which is perfect for introducing your friends to tabletop role-playing games or just spending a lovely evening together with them.

The game stars Marmot Detective, a grim-faced Marmot who has seen life, and is full of regrets. He embraces the dark underbelly of Animal City like a lover, and the bottle like his only friend. And yet, tragically, he is drawn into a web of lies and murder, looking only to find justice and the truth. Animal Crime is what would happen Dashiell Hammett wrote for Slylock Fox.

Money from this kickstarter will go directly to the artist, Jake Richmond, who will be producing art for the game. We have enough ($300!) to have illustrations on every page. Further money will be put towards comic pages (either instructional or just stories about the characters).

The final game will be released as a PDF with on a "pay whatever you like" model, including free copies to anyone who asks.

Bloodmoon Goblins

by John Grana of the Fear the Boot Podcast

Quote:
Green skin, red eyes and glistening rows of fangs. The goblins of the Bloodmoon tribe shuffle through the dark, stinking, trap-infested warrens they call home and scheme against the pale-skins, the bigger goblinoids, and each other. To be a Bloodmoon Goblin is to face constant threat from within and without as you attempt to survive...or perhaps even do more. Riches and power await any goblin who can strike at the surface and come back alive, or find a way to delve even deeper into other, unknown depths. And the barbed, iron crown of the Goblin King belongs, always and only, to whoever can take and keep it.

Bloodmoon Goblins is a small campaign setting for a game of player character goblins living as part of the tribe. The PCs may set out on daring strikes against the halfling villages or even the human towns. They may find treasures and dangers hidden beneath their own very commons and trash heaps, or elsewhere. Their clique may grow into a faction capable of seizing the crown. Or they may die the next time a motley band of human fighters, elf druids, and halfling rogues rushes into their warren to kill them and take their belongings.

Bloodmoon Goblins is compatible with the OGL, 3.X, and Pathfinder. It is intended to be run in Pathfinder, with the E6 variant.

HELLAS: Wine Dark Void

Quote:
The 128+ page book includes

• Full color illustrations of 40+ detailed ships.
• Ship modification and construction rules.
• Slipspace phenomena. An in-depth look into the wine dark void known as the Panthalassa; the cosmic all sea
• Slipspace encounters. A detailed look at the strange denizens that ply the slipspace trade routes preying on the weak
• A detailed look at the planet Korinthos. A mega city sprawl that covers the entire planet.
• New Metousia rules. A clear look at the players ability to change the world around them.
• Planetary Consumer/Trade scores for all the known worlds.
• A detailed look at the goddess Aionisia and her temple moon.
• Vehicle space combat and chase rules.

What are you helping me with?
The book is done and waiting to go. The major cost is the printing of the book the way it is intended to be presented. With your help the book will be produced in full color and priced at a reasonable level so that anyone interested in the game can have access to it. If by some miracle I can double the amount I can double the content of the book giving everyone who helps almost two books for the price of one.

Any and all help is appreciated. If you can’t pledge please at least tell a friend and make them aware of the project.

The Demolished Ones

Quote:
You awaken on a cold floor, the taste of cotton in the back of your mouth. Your tongue felt heavy, thick; your arms refused to push your up. You floundered for a few minutes there, trying to get your bearings, trying to gain stability, control. You took a breath and were hit with something metallic mixed with the scent of sweat and fear. You opened your eyes, cautiously, and pushed yourself up.

The room was small, bare concrete walls and hard stone floor. That was the first thing your saw; the second was the body. It lay in the center of the room, face-down, sprawled, a crimson pool congealed around it. The man was dressed in formal attire, though the clothes were shabby and worn. His hair was dark, mussed, matted with blood.

You pushed yourself back, away from the corpse, and looked around the room wildly, alert for danger. That was when you saw the others. Four of them, two men and two women, all around the room. Three were unconscious, prone, as you had been, unceremoniously left on the floor to wake. The Fourth, one of the women, was huddled in the corner, her eyes shut tight, rocking gently and muttering to herself.

Who were these people? Was one of them the killer? Were they all potential victims? What was this place, and why were you here?

You searched your memory for the answers, but found nothing. Nothing at all. That struck you as slightly odd at first, but the more you searched the more terrified you became. You did not even know your name. The more you searched, though, the more you became aware that nothing was there. you could remember nothing of your life, nothing of the events that had led you here.

Something was very wrong.


Who are you? Do you even know? If you do, you're better off than I am, I'll tell you that much.



This is both a game and an adventure. There is a story here; there are characters and places, there is a beginning, a middle, and an endgame. But this adventure is not tied to any particular game or setting. True, it uses the FATE 3.0 SRD as the basis for its rules, but liberties are taken, modifications are made. You do not need any one specific FATE game to play with this book; all you need is this book, and a knowledge of how FATE works (the free FATE SRDs help with this).

Dark Nova RPG

Quote:
Our flagship game- the Dark Nova RPG- is a table-top roleplaying game set in the early 24th century. It is an innovative game with nine races and thirty occupations to choose from. Rather than join in the homogenized D20 market, the DNRPG uses a unique system that hearkens back to the Golden Age of RPGs, described more in-depth within the FAQ. With a rich, in-depth setting and a realistic approach to advanced "space opera" sci-fi, the DNRPG creates a world for GMs and players alike that balances fun and adaptability with technology based on real-world cutting-edge theoretical science. The DNRPG main manual is a 2" thick, 8 1/2" x 11" hardcover game manual with extensive artwork by several up-and-coming artists that is 500 pages in length, and contains all of the material needed to run the game.
