Kickstarter - Station Keepers First day 41% funded!
In a universe thought to be lifeless, a single inhabited space station is discovered. It is populated by giant creatures, the Station Keepers. Everyone that has tried to interact with them has met terrible end but that doesn't stop you from sneaking onto the station to find answers and loot the advanced technology.
This is an experimental Kickstarter aimed at funding the development of the game. Drop by and check out what it's all about and drop in a dollar or more if you like the concept.
The ideals of Chivalry, the power of Enchantment, and the magic of love deserve a place in your 5th Edition fantasy campaign. To ignite that creative spark on game night, Love's Labour's Liberated introduces several thematically-appropriate variations of 5e mechanics. Bring romance in the form of the Cavalier of Love (variant fighter archetype), the Enchanter, love-based magic items, Adventures in Love, poetry, and more.
You are a Dreamr, an individual with the power to traverse other's dreams and fight their nightmares. Or cause them. Using a variant of Powered by the Apocalypse, your gaming group will build dreams together and journey through them unlocking fantasies, secrets, and horrors as your characters learn more about the sleeper and yourself.
DIRGEzine is a fanzine dedicated to showcasing the skills of underrepresented groups in the RPG sphere. We have art, prose, character sketches, articles, and maybe even a dungeon (Maybe). Come check it out and support a great cause!
Spirit of Adventure: Pirates of Armageddon is the first issue of a hex crawl adventure magazine. This issue's setting takes place across a gonzo wasteland (wastelake?) that used to be a Lake Erie/Ontario using a simple game system built for the adventure. The player takes command of a pirate ship trying to survive and uncover the mysteries of these blasted waters.
I'm creating a "software + mapping content" combo to quickly and easily create gorgeous hex maps for tabletop RPGs. (And potentially boardgames, too!)
Click on the image below to check out the KS campaign, which just launched yesterday.
The software runs on Windows and Mac OS X (not on mobile devices). It's already developed and available; the crowdfunding campaign is only to fund the development/porting of the new hex tile mapping content.
Quick delivery of rewards is expected (April), and there are no shipping costs involved, since it's all digital downloads.
Campaign launched on: Feb 26, 2019
Campaign ends on: March 25, 2019
Funding goal: $2200 (already funded, and 1st Stretch Goal reached!)
The Kickstarter campaign for GODS is now live on Kickstarter.
GODS is a Dark Fantasy RPG inspired by the work of Robert E. Howard, Karl E. Wagner, Michael Moorcock or Glen Cook. The game invites the players to play heroes seeking high adventure in the Wildlands, a brutal land abandoned and forgotten by the gods. From one-shots adventures to massive campaigns, GODS will offer a variety of game modes and provide a modern and adult gaming experience, supported by a d10 system that favors gameplay, narrative and fun without leaving simulation and realism aside.
GODS is, above all, a game based on adventure, epic quests, and exploration: a journey to the far reaches of the Wildlands, its lost cities, titanic scenery, primeval forests, and forgotten ruins. Attached to the standards of Dark Fantasy, the game is full of action, magic, rituals, and epic battles. It will satisfy players with a taste for atmosphere, mystery, and diplomacy, with a subtle dose of poetry: a brutal world, epic and dark, where fighters, shamans, thieves and other heroes often have to write their legend in blood.
This is a new module for D&D 5e or Pathfinder (different item with full stats and stuff for each rule set) inspired by the classic-style AD&D modules. Includes professional artwork and decades of RPG experience.
Kickstarter start: March 1 Kickstarter end: March 31
Mysthea: Legends From the Borderlands is a PBTA game about divided loyalties and post-war rebuilding in a geomantic fantasy world. We've built on the core setup for Legacy, with players controlling a House working to rebuild this city as well as a ground-level hero getting caught up in the city's drama and conflicts. As you play you'll build up your map of the city, master the strange arcane arts of Qoam crystals, and deal with your patron's agendas for this land. It's a little bit Dragon Age 2, a little bit Final Fantasy 12, and a little bit Steven Universe. Check it out here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1549920133/mysthea-lege...
BEINGS from BEYOND: Demons, Devils and Angels for 5th Edition
BEINGS from BEYOND
BEINGS from BEYOND is your guide to the extra-dimensional wonders and horrors known to mortals as Angels, Demons and Devils. Part bestiary, part setting guide and part adventure generator; the full book will be at least 135 pages long, in a starkly beautiful black-and-white style. Within its pages are scores of random tables for generating everything from Demonic cults to extra-dimensional paradises, reimagined mechanics ranging from summoning to madness, and plenty of evocative lore. Statistics are included for 5th edition, but the book is compatible with any fantasy role-playing system.
