    Default Character Cards Kickstarter

    Just thought I'd pass along a link to a "generate NPC traits" deck on Kickstarter:

    http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/...just-add-water

    I'm partial to using tarot cards for this, myself, but I think a deck with more specific character traits has its uses, too. The motivation/relationships/appearance/occupation categories seem like a good arrangement to me, and the price is reasonable (about $15 for 80 cards).

    Hi, I'm one of the creators of this one :-)
    I'd just popped by today to post it up here, looks like I was slightly too slow :p

    Fun fact: the Exalted 3E Kickstarter blew through its goal in eighteen minutes, and its stretch goals in less than an hour.

    That's cool and all, but I'm not sure how I feel about a publisher using Kickstarter to fund its investments. I realize Onyx Path Publishing only started up last year, but it looks like they're asking their fans to do their jobs for them...Especially since they practically seem to be a subsidiary of White Wolf.

    It's not for third edition itself; that's coming regardless. It's for a deluxe version, basically.

    Folks here may be interested in this IndieGoGo campaign to get some game designers to GenCon. As of right now, for a $25 donation you'll receive 57 PDFs from 25 different gaming companies. I know Christina and Owen personally, and have worked with Amanda. I can tell you that all three are good people who just need a bit of help raising the funds to get out to the summer Cons. Whether you chip in to help get them there or just to score the massive package of PDFs, either is good enough.

    Note that I asked Roland about whether IndieGoGo stuff can go here as well; the bossmeister gave the big thumb's up...

    A small update on the Eclipse Phase kickstarter.

    There's a few stretch goals. At 80k, there's a new adventure; at 90k, a character generator; and at 100k, a FATE Core conversion guide. Exciting, yes?

    Just wanted to post a quick reminder and update on this one. It's down to the final 16 hours. The primary goal has been met. The "stretch" goal is to get two "super-reviewers' to some of the summer Cons, so your pledges are still needed.

    Right now, there are 80 PDF products in the $25 bundle. Even if you don't care about getting folks to the Cons this summer, that bundle is well worth the price; there are some really cool products in there! Check it out!

    It's not Dwarven forge, but Dungeonstone is releasing some resin 3D cave terrain that actually looks pretty good (check the updates for some appearance improvements that have been made to the floor design since the project started). Almost all tiers are US only, but if I was in the states I'd probably be losing money to this one too.

    Default ZEITGEIST: The Gears of Revolution hardcover adventure path Kickstarter

    Greetings!

    First off, apologies if it is a faux pas here for a publisher to discuss their products. I figured people might be interested in reading about some adventures.

    I'd like to take a quick moment to mention EN Publishing's latest Kickstarter project.

    Zeitgeist: The Gears of Revolution, an adventure path for Dungeons & Dragons 4th Edition and for the PATHFINDER RPG, has completed the first of three acts, earning numerous rave reviews, and climaxing with a dramatic battle to save the city of Flint. As we begin to publish the second act, we're offering the chance to get the first five adventures in a beautiful hardcover compilation!


    Not familiar with ZEITGEIST yet? Our adventure paths always come with two free guides (one for players, one for GMs/DMs) and Island at the Axis of the World, the first adventure free! You can check them out for yourself - we're sure you'll like what you see! Don't just take our word for it - download them for free from right here!

    This Kickstarter has plenty of awesome rewards. Not only are there beautiful, full-colour hardcover compilations, but there are poster maps, NPC cards, bonus adventures, supplements, and more. By supporting the Kickstarter you not only get a gorgeous hardcover compilation of a top-tier adventure path, but that adventure path itself becomes even better!

    Thank you for your time, and if you have any questions, I'll gladly answer them here, or at the Kickstarter page.

    For the record I was running Zeitgeist (my players decided to steal [Spoilers'] ship and turn pirate instead at the end of the first module). It's also arguably the best adventure path I've ever read, with only the original WFRP: The Enemy Within being in anything like the same league.

    Default Excelsior – An Inspired Steampunk Pen and Paper RPG

    2Die10 Games is proud to announce the launch of our Kickstarter http://goo.gl/nSXJR for our new pen and paper role playing game: Excelsior! Excelsior takes place during the Industrial Revolution, where man has reached out to the further reaches of the globe to find the resources and land to support the population explosion brought on by advances in technology and medicine. A group of explorers end up in a place not on any known map, and must deal with all the internal and external dangers that go along with being there. Within the setting, we’re trying to offer something that stays a little closer to the works of literature that inspire the Steampunk movement like Jules Verne and H.G. Wells. Here are some additional details on what we’re offering:

    • A proprietary percentile skill and combat system that’s easy for first time pen and paper RPG players to pick up along with some new mechanics that seasoned gamers will find interesting.
    • A unique system for player constructed inventions.
    • Biomechanics and other less invasive enhancements such has night vision monocles!
    • Separate sections of the core book for GMs as well as a Bestiary.
    • Art by renowned RPG industry artists Mark Dudley and John Zeleznik


    We allow you, our supporters to get involved in the game in a variety of ways, from naming one of the narrators on the journey to Excelsior, naming prominent NPC’s there, and much more! Visit us now at our Kickstarter page http://goo.gl/nSXJR and check us out! We appreciate your support!

    Our wee bairn of a company, Sasquatch Game Studio, has just launched a Kickstarter campaign for our first project: the Primeval Thule campaign setting.

    Thule is a savage continent inspired by the works of Robert E. Howard (Conan) and H.P. Lovecraft (Cthulhu). Barbarians! Star-demons! Things Man Was Not Meant To Know! All that good stuff!

    And it's compatible with the Pathfinder RPG, 13th Age, or 4e Dungeons & Dragons.

    The lead design team is Richard Baker, David Noonan, and Stephen Schubert. Todd Lockwood is painting the cover, Christopher West is doing maps, and the stretch goals include names like Ed Greenwood, Owen Stephens, and Jason Buhlman.

    Here's a quick link: http://kck.st/11dxIWq

    And if you have any questions, ask away!

    I can't see it mentioned here, which is a bit criminal, but Chuubo's Marvelous Wish-Granting Engine is up to $66k on Kickstarter now, with 3 days to go. That means you can get both the corebook and the supplement Fortitude: By The Docks Of Big Lake with any pledge over $15 (and you get access to the working drafts immediately, too). It's looking unlikely now, but if we hit $80k we'll get a campaign too!

    This is the new tabletop RPG from Jenna Moran, talented creator of Nobilis. It's a diceless game with the emphasis on character and story (though I must say the cool powers are very cool too). It's designed to work for multiple distinct genres, each mapped to a particular region of Town, and each supported by modular rules (such as variety in the pace of the in-game passage of time, and the different types of action you can receive XP for).

    Fortitude, for example, is inspired by the rural settings of some anime, and the Pastoral genre it supports emphasises the daily life of your characters with a gradually-unfolding story. Horizon, meanwhile, is a somewhat darker region of Town, where vampires and ghosts lurk and your character is more likely to tip over into obsession. Arcadia, the shopping district, supports a more urban fantasy or over-the-top comic feel (the latter is referred to as 'Techno'). And for epic fantasy there's always the surreal Outside, from where come the genteel but reality-eating Riders.

    It's well worth a pledge!

    Default Re: ZEITGEIST: The Gears of Revolution hardcover adventure path Kickstarter

    Last minute update! (waves hi to neonchameleon, who was one of the original playtesters)

    The ZEITGEIST adventure path hardcover compilation Kickstarter for Pathfinder and D&D 4th edition will end at 7 a.m. Eastern US Time, Sunday the 14th of July, 2013. Because of a great response by our backers we've blown through every stretch goal so far, except for the "I hope WotC's legal team let's us do this" promise to do a D&D NEXT conversion. We've now added a series of extra stretch goals that add content to the Expanded Player's Guide. If you're interested in playing ZEITGEIST, not running it, you can get the softcover expanded Player's Guide for $17. And as of this posting we have about 17 hours to reach those goals.

    So, thanks to all the stretch goals we've already reached, you may be wondering what all you get for a $60 pledge.

    First, you get whatever physical item you pledged for, such as the Act One color hardcover.



    Second, you get the PDFs of the compilations of Act One (due in January 2014), Act Two (June 2014), and Act Three (December 2014), thirteen adventures in total.

    These compilations will integrate the various stretch goal PDFs: the Expanded Player's Guide, the dungeon crawl Crypta Hereticarum, the game-day adventure Bonds of Forced Faith, the adventure vignettes Vagabond of the Mirror Moon, the appendix Monsters & Magic of the Revolution, and the Case Files of the RHC add-on, mini-adventures for those sessions when not all the players show up or you need a break from the main plot. We'll also probably provide all these add-ins as stand-alone PDFs (depends on how the layout works out).

    Third, you get the PDFs of the NPC, Ally, and Treasure Cards from all three acts.

    Fourth, you'll get access to Hero Lab files of all three Acts.

    Fifth, thanks to our partnership with Darkraven Fantasy Soundscapes you'll get a free download of their Bay of Corsairs soundscapes.

    That's a lot of entertainment for $60.

    Default Stefan Pokorny from Dwarven Forge backing custom audio Kickstarter for Tabletop RPGer

    Hope this is the right place to post about a KS project...

    So, I noticed that Stefan Pokorny from DF has backed this project http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/...sound-project/ to create custom music, sound effects, and voice overs for Tabletop RPGers, and he is publicly trying to push their KS through DF and other forums, so I thought I'd share since I love this project too.

    Not sure if anyone else does this, but our gaming group loves to use ambient audio while we play to set the mood. But, what has me kicked are the potential Monster sounds these guys want to create and that they have talent from even Diablo 3 working with them.

    I'm backing this sucker at $75 to get the Soundboard and all audio they create as it's finished. Maybe some of you guys (or gals like me) would find it useful.

    And some details on it:

    Name: The Realmsound Project

    Coincidentally I actually met the guys behind the Realmsound project yesterday at a meet up. Didn't even know it was them till a Convo on Kickstarter Projects happened. And now I'm going to start gaming with them next week here in the OC! :))

    So my final shameless plug for them as a celebration. Got 24 hours left on their campaign! Let's rally the troops and reach their funding goals! :)

    OK, a heads up about a Kickstarter for my first RPG product called Frozen Skies.

    Frozen Skies is part of a new Dieselpunk campaign setting for the award winning Savage Worlds system and is set in the mysterious, frozen lands of Alyeska, it is an in-depth and informative guide to its history, geography, myths and legends. After Frozen Skies is successfully launched, further books are planned to cover a much wider setting known as the Realms of Darmonica.

    The Kickstarter is intended to fund the Frozen Skies book with the view to release it as a PDF and through Print-On-Demand.

    Thanks for your time and even more so if you decide to back this project, but by all means please help spread the word about it.
