Want to get the word out on a Kickstarter or Indiegogo or other "crowd-funded" Table Top RPG project?

Please follow these simple instructions to keep clutter to a minimum. Remember that this thread is for just for announcements, not for discussion.

1- Post a thread in the RPG Press Release forum: http://rpggeek.com/forum/379245/rpg/press-releases about your project. You can keep that thread updated with any new developments. Interested readers will subscribe to your thread to make sure they get all the up-to-date news. (Please don't post multiple threads or post threads anywhere else. They'll typically end up getting moved to that forum or possibly deleted.)

2- Create a post here in the Announcement Thread that links to your post in the Press Release forum. Anyone interested in keeping up with the latest Kickstarters, etc., can subscribe to this thread and will be notified when something new is posted here. Here are helpful things to include in your post here in the Announcement Thread...
- A brief description of the game, perhaps with a small image.
- The start date and end date for your crowd-funding campaign
- Link to the Kickstarter/Crowd-funding page (of course!)
- A link to the thread in the Press Release forum for more in depth discussion.


Again to maximize the usefulness of this thread please DO NOT RESPOND to this thread with anything other than a link to new threads in the Press Release forum. If you want to discuss a specific project that has been posted here, please do so in the linked thread.

Failure to adhere to these rules will result in the owner of this thread rolling his eyes, sighing, and/or sadly shaking his head.

ALSO: Here are Geeklists that track the success of various Kickstarters through time:
Kickstarter RPG Projects - May 2010 to mid-Feb 2013
Kickstarter RPG Projects - 2013
Kickstarter RPG Projects - 2014
Kickstarter RPG Projects - 2015
Kickstarter RPG Projects - 2016

AND: If you want to see even more projects, check this out on tumblr:

Best of luck with all of your projects in 2016!

The Lost Dungeons of Xon: Bathed in Blood is now live on Kickstarter. This unique hack-and-slash dungeon crawl is designed for low-level characters who get to absorb powers from the monsters they slay, becoming more powerful as they progress through the dungeon. This is the second module in the series, but it can be played standalone, and there are also pledge levels where you can get content from our previous Kickstarter at a steep discount. The module is available for Pathfinder or 5th Edition (separate PDF for each system) and is loaded with interactive features like embedded audio, quick-link navigation, unlockable player secrets, links to spell and monster descriptions and more!

Here's a link to the full press release:

Only Two days left on the Polaris RPG Kickstarter! It is fully funded, and the unlocked Stretch Goals have greatly improved the "bang for your buck" for backers. If you haven't joined the project yet, please do so now! The next few Stretch Goals are scheduled every 2,000 euros, so they are going to go very fast. The very last scheduled stretch goals will grant for free the PDF of the next Polaris RPG supplement when it is released in 2017: Creatures (a 200+ pages compendium of the beasts and monsters of the Deep).

I've recently launched the first of what will be a series of short (~3 weeks long each) Kickstarter campaigns.



Link to Kickstarter page: Battlegrounds Content Drive #1

Start date: June 25, 2016

End Date: July 18, 2016

RPGGeek Forum Link: http://rpggeek.com/article/23067941#23067941

In addition to the great new content being funded by this project, this campaign should be of interest to a number of you because the Battlegrounds software itself is currently available at a decent discount.

Some examples:
A $16 pledge is all it takes to get a BRPG Player Client license (a 15% savings off the regular $19 price).

A $35 pledge gets you a GM Client license (normally $39).

There's also a Pledge level that covers an entire typical gaming group ( a sort of mega-bundle).

I hope you'll check out the campaign, which could use a boost to ensure it funds. There's even something for the boardgamers among you.

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2036759092/stellar-adve...

In 2011 Arion Games revamped and re-released the Advanced Fighting Fantasy RPG originally written by Marc Gascoigne, Steve Jackson and Ian Livingstone.

This classic game has proved to be very popular in the five years since its release, which has also seen the release of nine more supplements.

The original run of Fighting Fantasy gamebooks also featured several Science Fiction adventures, and so we at Arion Games felt it was time for a SciFi version of this fantastic ruleset.

And thus we bring you: Stellar Adventures

This standalone game will allow just about any type of SciFi adventures from soldiers in powered armour vs vicious alien monsters to the command crew of an imperial frontier explorer ship. Small time traders moving between starports to space bounty hunters. Dystopian robot hunters to rebels fighting against a corrupt government.
