    This is a kickstarter that two of my friends are working on, and one I would be very excited to see succeed. It's called the Scarlet Oak Tavern.

    Basically, this is a tavern by gamers, for gamers. It's going to have a gaming library patrons can draw from, and provide a game friendly environment--along with food and alcohol. I've known these two for a while, and they've put a lot of thought and research into this. If any of you are in the Raleigh area, or just want to see projects like this succeed, they could really use your support.

    Ever wanted to embrace the tension that arises when playing a character committed to honor in a morally gray world? In Vow of Honor, you and your companions are tasked with saving a world that is spiraling into chaos:

    The world of Sasara, your home, is broken and depraved. Despots rule over isolated city-states, indifferent to the suffering and squalor of the people. In the shadows of the enigmatic Ruins - the last vestiges of a prosperous era long forgotten - the vile terrorize the innocent few without fear of retribution. Until now.


    You are an Arbiter, protector of all that is good in Sasara. Only as you embody the Tenets of Honor will you be empowered to protect the weak, avenge the victims of the wicked, and unlock the knowledge of the ancient Forebears to usher in a new age of peace. Will you take the Vow of Honor? Will you do what is necessary to save your home?

    From KS page

    In addition to that dramatic premise, the PDF will be stunningly handsome:


    This is a promising game from a promising designer (not me, I just helped do some editing). Check out the unique setting and fast, fluid system for yourself here. Of course, the choice is ultimately yours.

    Edit: Also, the designer has been responding to questions on reddit here.

    DungeonMorphs Are Back! These mini-maps on 1" dice or cards join using corridors that match up on each side. Simply grab a few dice (or some cards) and roll them (or deal them) then line them up next to each other and you have an instant RPG map.

    They were originally Kickstarted over 3 years ago with 2 dice sets of dungeon ("Adventurer" and "Explorer") and 1 dice set of cavern ("Spellunker") map designs. One deck of cards included the designs of all 3 sets.The new Kickstarter features city & village designs.

    Initially one set of dice with both city & village maps is planned. but stretch goals allow for extra sets and other free add-ons.

    Hi all! I'm kickstarting Legacy: Life Among the Ruins, a game about the families that have survived a reality-twisting apocalypse, the characters that rise up as heroes from those families, and the struggles they face rebuilding the world in subsequent generations. Legacy combines the post-apocalyptic weirdness of Fallout, S.T.A.L.K.E.R. and A Canticle for Leibowitz with the epoch-spanning gameplay of Civilisation or Alpha Centauri, giving each player control over a Family of survivors and the Character that the Family sends out into the wasteland to fix their problems. The system's based on Vincent Baker's Apocalypse World, with some pretty hefty modifications; if you're not sure if it's your cup of tea all backers get immediate access to the full rules text, which you can download with no strings attached. If you're interested, give it a look!

    Spellcards for Pathfinder RPG!

    https://www.kickstarter.com/projects...e-playing-game

    The result of a personal project, I've created custom playing cards for all of the Core Rulebook spells (All 623 of em!) the nine metamagic feats, and a couple cards for tracking things like unprepared spell slots. These cards give you a physical system for tracking prepared spells, referencing spells for spontaneous casters, or a quick way to collect spells during GM prepwork. Get those laptops out from in front of your Casters so you can see their faces again!

    You can read more about it on the kickstarter page, or my google sites site describing the cards:

    To expand Mark's post further (I hope that's OK). Sorcerers of Ur-Turuk and is being designed and published by Arion Games, who also designs/publishes Advanced Fighting Fantasy and Maelstrom.

    It is fantasy RPG set in a Persian Empire inspired 'Sword & Sorcery' setting. The PCs are powerful sorcerers combing the desert for magical secrets from the buried remains of an ancient Sumerian-like civilisation.


    It is a troupe style RPG (like Ars Magica) in that each player creates 1 Sorcerer, as well as 1 major PC and 3 minor PCs. That way the player can play a different PC that is appropriate to the scene or task at hand.

    It uses Open D6, and seems to favour the simplicity of Star Wars 1e over its later iterations. It has a flexible magic system in which you combine 1 of 3 "verbs" (Summon, Shape, Destroy) with 1 of 10 "nouns" (Life, Magic, Fire etc).

    The final rulebook looks to be around 140 pages (the same as Star Wars 1e or one of the 3 D6 corebooks), in full colour, and with beautiful watercolour art. It will be followed by a setting book early next year, presumably of similar size.

    Question tiles search: need help with Kickstarter

    Many a time I've tried to find a tile map for the scene, only to spend hours browsing irrelevant tiles in a clunky interface and come away empty-handed.

    So I want to create a tiles search service, like Google Pictures only better. It'll search over rpgmapshare.com and other tiles, only with a user-friendly interface.

    Would be cool to fund it at Kickstarter, but I live in Russia so I can't create the thing (the Kickstarter campaign, that is) myself. Anyone here wants to help?

    I would like to bring to attention Starship Adventure. It looks like a very interesting game that fills a niche that I haven't seen another game fill.

    You, uh. Not to be mean, but you really need to work on the presentation of your work. Put your stuff through a spellcheck, for starters. And if you're going to link to an example of previous work, you should put in a little extra effort to clean up the table. Also...if you're trying to be even vaguely official with this, call it Pathfinder, not 3.75. You're not even saying Dungeons and Dragons 3.75, just 3.75, which isn't exactly a well-known name. You may also want to remove all the 'extra book' rewards, because...why would I want five copies of the same book? Seriously?

    As it is, the presentation denotes that it's going to be a shoddy product full of grammatical errors, unbalanced items, and cheesy classes. A lot like the Advanced Class Guide was.

    I have hired an editor, because as my posts show I terrible with grammar. I will take your opinions into consideration, and make the rewards more varied, I put multiple copies of the book as higher rewards based on how I would like a reward, because if I have 5 copies of a book, I would give a copy to each of my gaming group, kickstarter will be updated within a few minutes though thank you,

    Hello!

    Below is a link to our project, a new Sci-Fi setting and ruleset built from the ground up to integrate multimedia with traditional tabletop RPGs.

    The project speaks for itself better than I can. Any questions will happily be fielded on the Kickstarter Website.

    Starforged Odyssey: Aces Wild

    The video is short and should only take a few minutes of your time. There are additional videos if you're interested from there.

    Thanks for checking us out!

    The KS reached $100K this morning and unlocked the 10th stretch goal: backers will receive a gastronomic Esteren menu imagined by the team of GastronoGeek and the French Chef Maxime Leonard. A previous goal unblocked a set of beautiful art prints from Yoann Lossel.

    Hi everybody,

    Conan is a board game, but I thought I should put it up here because of the roleplaying and flavour involved, as well as minis you might like. The project is over 700% funded on day 5.

    The image below is of the basic pledge. I think with stretch goals you have + 50 minis or so, maybe more.

    I'm super excited about this one.

    https://www.kickstarter.com/projects...386/strike-rpg



    It's a very light, highly-tactical RPG with very simple rules and a lot of tactical complexity. The rules are already up for download, too, which is one of my requirements for kickstarting a game anymore.

    Also, it's in Canadian monopoly money, so it's even less expensive than the reasonable pledge levels would indicate!

    Goodman Games has launched a Kickstarter called "The Monster Alphabet, with GM Gems."

    This Kickstarter funds the creation of two hardcover systems-neutral sourcebooks: The Monster Alphabet and GM Gems. They are intended for use with any fantasy tabletop role playing game, under any rules system or edition.

    The Monster Alphabet is a lavishly illustrated 64-page hardcover sourcebook. Each page or spread is an “inspirational letter” which has a random table associated with a monster attribute. For example: A is for Android, B is for Breath Weapon, C is for Crossbreed, and so on.

    GM Gems is an 80-page systems-neutral hardcover of game master inspiration organized around general adventuring topics. It is filled with a wealth of information and ideas to empower every aspect of your game. The first printing sold out several years ago. This Kickstarter funds a second printing, in hardcover format, with new art to supplement the original work, including new cover art by TSR alum Laura Lakey, new interior work by fan favorite Stefan Poag, and new endsheets by Peter Mullen.

    Both GM Gems and Monster Alphabet are complete and ready to go to the printer. This Kickstarter funds their print run and the possible addition of incremental features through achievement of stretch goals.


    There's a few previews available on the Kickstarter page for both books. I pledged for the gold foil Monster Alphabet and added the Dungeon Alphabet.

    After months of planning, its finally here!

    The Pact Magic Unbound: Grimoire of Lost Souls Kickstarter is finally here!

    What We're About
    Pact Magic Unbound: Grimoire of Lost Souls is a compilation of Pact Magic Unbound, Vol 1 and Vol 2, with 100+ pages of new material, plus entirely new high-end artwork.

    Dario and I have gotten many requests for a product like this ever since we released Pact Magic Unbound, Vol 2. We want to deliver on the idea of the Ultimate Pact Magic Product in the biggest way possible.

    What We Need
    Dario and I are asking for $2,500. In truth, the product is already written and has been going through rigorous playtesting over the past two months. We need your help in order to commission new artwork for the book, however, so we're not stuck recycling the artwork from our existing products, most of which is from Dario's original Secrets of Pact Magic and is thereby ten years old.

    What We're Offering
    Dario and I are offering a variety of pledge tiers that will allow our backers to get exactly what they want out of this Kickstarter. We also have a number of exciting add-ons that will allow our backers to gain fantastic rewards. We have a number of Stretch Goals planned beyond what is listed, but we're also listening for backer feedback in regards to what our consumer base wants to see added to the Kickstarter. Want me to make Spirit Cards? Ask for them! Want Dario to record an audio drama where he gets people to read legends in accents? We can do that too!

    The incentive that I'm most excited for is our Create-A-Character add-on. Essentially, if you pledge enough funds for us to commission a piece of artwork, we'll let you decide what characters are portrayed in that artwork. Your character(s) can be forever immortalize in the forbidden pages of the Grimoire of Lost Souls, either flaunting occult power or becoming horribly maimed by it. For instance, my kitsune cavalier, Kyr'shin, will be making an appearance in the Grimoire of Lost Souls as the unfortunate victim of an alter age spell.

    Thanks for your interest! Please keep up with this thread, as I'll be making announcements on it as the Kickstarter moves along.

    PS. I actually got my RPG Design start on Giantitp.com. Homecoming! ;-)

    Thumbs up Create your own Dungeon Tiles on Wet/Dry Erase Material

    Here is the link for the Kickstarter: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects.../dungeon-tiles

    Here are the details:

    To offer an affordable way for gamers to create their own dungeons. Allowing them to upload their own designs and have them printed on quality material for an affordable price. Also allowing gamer to pick from pre-created dungeons on the site as well.

    Imagine that you spend all this time creating an epic dungeon only to print it on paper or cardstock. If funding is successful you will be able to upload and have it printed on wet and dry erasable high quality washable vinyl. You can get it as one big map or individual tiles for you to rearrange, the choice is yours!

    In order to accomplish this we have put together this dungeon set as rewards for your pledges. These Dungeon Tiles are map tiles for your roleplaying games and other miniatures games. The tiles can be assembled in various shapes and sizes of dungeons in moments. The tiles are marked in increments of 1" and are 6"x6" in size
