Hey, I just wanted to commend you on this incentive, as well as the limited Early Bird pledges. The first got me to head over and check out the KS immediately, and the second inspired me to go ahead and pledge instead of waiting until later in the day. That was really smart, and had nice synergy.

Thanks for doing good work, and making the KS affordable.

I present to you the new Crowdfunding Collection #110, including every tabletop project started between 06/10 and 06/23.

My attendance to NordCon (a German role-playing game convention), delayed the collection for a week, thus it comes with none fewer than a total of 70 projects,… let’s get to them.

I’d like to briefly highlight the gamebook Kurai Jikan Eidolon (in German) which still requires some funding. I do know the author, followed his previous crowdfunding campaigns on a different platform and do recommend the project based on his skills as well as his ability to fulfill his projects.

Back to the English project, I did back Wicked City. The game uses a system based on Blades in the Dark and spices it up by allowing the players to essentially act as Dungeon Keeper. I liked both and thus couldn’t resist. Neither could I resist The Roleplayer’s Guide To Heists, which is a system-agnostic sourcebooks. I tend to regularly have groups trying to do a heist of one kind or another, and think the guide will be mighty useful.
Next to those two I almost backed a lot of more narrative games – which I grouped under „Story Game Role-Playing Games“. Like Hearts of Magic: Threads Entangled, a game that places the players in the tumultous conflicts between fey-nobles, arcane bureaucrats and anarchist witches – a setup that does sound fun. On a way more serious note I might back into Red Carnations on a Black Grave, which sees the players assume the role of French resistance member during World War II. The game takes a cue from Montesgur 1244 and offers historic characters to explore the conflicts. Then there’s the way more „fantastic“ Bleak Spirit, a game that aims to be a kind of (Dark) Souls-like. Yet, not by providing the players with very difficult fights, and more by providing a setting which melancholy and darkness is inspired by the one of the Souls series. Then there is What We Were, which shares the investigation of the characters personality with Bleak Spirits, while not being as bleak. Well, and there’s Troll’s Teeth, I have no idea how it works, but I am impressed by the use of wedges for the game mechanic.
With the, kind of avalanch, of fantasy rpgs, I found the Science Fiction approach of The ADVANCED kind of fresh. Among the fantasy games I like the design and graphics of Zafir: Tactical Roleplaying Game, Children of the Beast and The King of Dungeons – they do look very neat. Yet I do would recommend that you take a glance at Emberlord, Realm of the Livingstones, Age of Hunters, Awoken and The Awakening RPG as well, if you like fantasy.
There is an English gamebook by the name of Escape from Darkmoor and plenty more, interesting, cool projects worth checking out, just take a look:

I'm kickstarting 4 sets of Map tiles, in both gridded and plain flavours. They come in sets of 30, they're double-sided, and they're printed on playing card stock to be super affordable and portable.

We funded in 24 minutes and broke all our stretch goals in just over an hour. So i'm slightly in shock right now...

My Kickstarter for Red Carnations on a Black Grave is chugging along but I want to share it!

For just over two months in 1871, the Paris Commune tried to make an egalitarian, socialist state a reality despite disagreement within their walls and attacks from outside it. This is the story of a community caught up in a sudden revolution, their messy personal lives and their attempts to create a utopia in the face of impending death. How far would you go for what you believe in? Would you stand firm even if it meant your death?

Red Carnations on a Black Grave is a freeform roleplaying game for 4-6 players that brings to life the 72 tumultuous days of the Paris Commune. A game is playable in a single session of four hours or less. Each player portrays two characters during the two months of the Commune, one of whom must die during the French Army's all-out assault on Paris in the last week of May, 1871. Special cards guide your play, providing questions about how the characters are related to each other, historical incidents to serve as the basis of scenes in the game, and the ultimate fate of your surviving characters.

This game was made for people who love Paris, history, revolutions, and resistance, or tragic roleplaying games like Montsegur 1244 and Ten Candles. Help us spread the word of the revolution!

The Rocket Age (5e) Kickstarter campaign is in the last 48 hours! We have hit funding, rocketed past that to the Ed Greenwood adventure stretch goal, and are kicking in the second stage boosters to heads towards the next stretch goal, Rocket Ranger's Handbook by Rocket Age creator Ken Spencer. Can we go further? Tune your RADIO dial to find out!

Come join us in bringing a 1938 that never was and a Solar System that should have been to a brand new world of fans!

Rocket Rangers, Away!
