Want to get the word out on a Kickstarter or Indiegogo or other "crowd-funded" 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 2013 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

Best of luck with all of your projects in 2013!

Creature & Encounter Card Decks
Beautiful monster art cards with game stats on back & encounter generator cards--Mad Libs/Book of Lairs mash-up.

*4 Decks of different creatures in each deck.
*Each monster deck will be done for each chosen game system: System neutral (ecology/knowledge check info), 3.75E/3.5E fantasy, 1E fantasy, and likely Dungeon World and maybe a couple of others. (We're doing a poll to select the systems. The list will be final around 1/15.)
*2 Encounter card Decks: Encounter cards are great for generating an interesting random encounter or for stocking a hex crawl.
*A PDF of the creatures as paper minis is also available.
*Most of the art is available as stock art for other publishers.

Ends February 2nd.

[thread=http://rpggeek.com/article/10940802#10940802][/thread]

Hello all,

I am here to promote the fundraising effort for Slayers of the Great Serpent, a classic fantasy campaign for Pathfinder and 4E.

Click

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1907652175/slayers-of-th......

to see the project page.

This fantasy roleplaying campaign is inspired by the Dreamlands stories of H.P. Lovecraft, the fairy tales of Oscar Wilde, the works of Romantic poets like Coleridge and Byron, and the folktales of cultures the world over. These influences combine to create adventures that recapture the language of fantasy and myth.

The vision behind Slayers of the Great Serpent was about making something that truly fits the definition of the word epic. It was about creating a story of great heroes versus a terrifying monster, but also about making a world that was majestic and awe-inspiring. What I envisioned was a quest that required the adventurers to undertake a lengthy and harrowing journey through unknown lands, knowing only that their destination lies to the distant east, beyond the borders of the legendary kingdom of Xi.

Thanks for reading!

Endgame: Day Zero
Hello and thanks for checking us out!


Endgame: Day Zero is a RPG where you or your GM choose a world ending event or events that provide a particular set of challenges your group must overcome and adapt to.

To accomplish this we are creating a set of real world survival tips, tactics and other useful information that can come in handy not only in the game but in the real world. So when you party is staving to death and has no water those that have read the tips might have a chance of making those extra experience points and saving the party!

Like most games we have developed present and future technologies such as weapons and vehicles. However the interesting part of this game is how you can use a "customization tool" to modify a vehicle, construct a bunker or structure and or add to a weapon system. This gives players a goal and sense of ownership when they create a personal item or are involved in the process.


Open for funding from Jan 3rd to Jan 28th 2013 On kickstarter: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/619786158/endgame-day-ze...


Or you can visit our website for additional information:
http://www.caffeinatedchaosstudios.com/#

Thanks
Sloane Hucker,

Spreading some word about a project I am excited about.

Interface Zero 2.0: Full Metal Cyberpunk
Launched: Jan 15, 2013
Funding ends: Mar 1, 2013


A cyberpunk tabletop RPG set in the year 2090 and powered by the Savage Worlds Deluxe system.

So it is a setting book for Savage Worlds that expands the first edition of Interface Zero (Savage Worlds), but as I understand, it also can be used as a stand-alone product with just the SW rules book.

Rock'n Loud RPG
Funding started: January 18th
Funding ends: March 5th

Rock'n Loud is a tabletop roleplaying game that lets the players create their own musicians (or drummer) and form a band to rock the world. A whole new meaning for rock'n'roll!

The rules will cover all the essentials, ranging from recording a demo and playing live to handling the media and fighting drug addiction.
As the band gets more famous, the venues will get bigger and money starts to flow.

Do you have what it takes to become a rockstar?

Storm Battalion
Storm Battalion is set in an alternative history during 1935. America, Britain, Canada, An independent nation of indigenous people named the Kegintági, and the European union are all fighting over land where supernatural storms erupt. The storms turn animals and people into monsters, corrupt the soil and vegetation, and drive people crazy. But they are also sources of great power that the different countries are fighting over.
There are Inventions that allow the storage of this power and it’s much greater than what they would regularly be able to generate so the war machines get fun and crazy: We’ve got sentient robots, railguns, tesla coils, radio controlled dogs, electric shovels, deathrays, rigid airships and tons more technology. All the weapons and vehicles are totally upgradable and customizable. You can attach buzzsaws to trains, machineguns to your dirigible or make your shotgun fully automatic if you have the desire.
The players take the role of people killed in the Storms and returned to life. There are very few of these people and all of them come back with terrible powers. They can control other peoples blood, summon up corrosive fog, scare people to death, pull out the bones of other people, or generally become terrifying boogiemen. There are over 20 different powers and I tried to make them stand out from the regular ones we all see all over the place.
Thanks for checking us out!
