The ‘Built on Strange Ground’ Kickstarter.

I’m kind of bumping the Built on Strange Ground Kickstarter: I obliquely referred to it last week, but it should have its own entry. It’s a collection of comics and stories that purport to be “true, personal experiences of strange places, haunted sites, mysterious neighbors and local lore.”  Whether you believe in that sort of thing or not; who doesn’t like a good haunted house story? Also, the guy who does Sword Interval has a comic in here, so there you go.

The “The White Box: A Game Design Workshop-in-a-Box” Kickstarter.

I dunno if I can justify getting it, though.  I have no particular ideas for a board game.  But if some of you do then this sounds like a decent investment:

Basically, it combines all the generic stuff you’d probably want for a board game with a book on how to design one. Probably would make a good gift for that teenager in your life who’s into gaming. Heck, I wouldn’t mind something similar for RPG supplements, honestly.

The Sigil & Sign Cthulhu Mythos RPG Kickstarter.

The hook is that the players play the cultists. It’s also got this card-based character sheet system going on that I’m not familiar with, but let’s face facts: I buy more games than I play anyway.  I feel that at least I’m helping to keep more money in circulation, and that should eventually benefit me, right?

Anyway, the Sigil & Sign Cthulhu Mythos RPG is being put together by MBG Games and Cubicle 7 – the latter folks being the ones who do the Laundry RPG, which I order directly from England because it’s faster that way – and has some names writing for it that you might recognize. Check it out.

Day to go on the ‘Cold Warning’ Call of Cthulhu mini-Kickstarter.

Apparently you can do one-week ones, and Cold Warning is one of those.  It’s a blast from the past that had been on ice for decades.  But they thawed it out, which is pretty cool and I think that it’s interesting to see how stuff that’s been frozen in time for that long can still be well-preserved. Plus, if they get enough ice by tomorrow then a stretch goal will open up, which would be chill.

…I’ll stop now.

The ‘You’ Kickstarter. (Unknown Armies)

You,’ by Greg Stolze: it’s probably going to fund, but every little bit helps. It’s definitely an Unknown Armies book, but you don’t need to be up to speed about the game*, apparently. I kicked in…

*You really need to be up to speed on Unknown Armies, though.

If you Kickstartered 7th Sea Second Edition, check your email.

The PDF for Pirate Nations just dropped.  It’s not yet released to the general public, but if you backed the Kickstarter above $40 you should be getting a copy.  On a personal note… this isn’t the one that immortalizes my wife, alas.  Not that her character was a pirate.  Her character punched pirates.  Until they were good, or at least quiet.

The Munchkin Shakespeare Kickstarter.

This one is gonna be a gift for my sister-in-law.  She will have no idea that Munchkin Shakespeare exists, but she will love it on sight. So, hey, win.

Less than three days on the Tales From the Loop RPG Kickstarter!

I… succumbed.  They decided to make a RPG out of Simon Stalenhag’s bizarrely interesting pictures of robots and dinosaurs in 1980s settings.  And I don’t quite have the money for this, but… I succumbed.

Hey, let me spread that around!

Oh, good: the Pokemon Zoography 2017 Calendar Kickstarter funded.

I don’t really have any personal use for it – I don’t play Pokemon Go – but the person drawing the Pokemon Zoography 2017 Calendar is also the artist for the TimeWatch RPG, so, you know, part of the tribe and all that. Besides: the more creative work that gets supported, the more that gets created. As a creator myself I recognize this.

The ‘Tales from the Loop – Roleplaying in the ’80s That Never Was’ Kickstarter, dammit.

‘Dammit’ because I can’t afford this one.  Still, it’s damn pretty. Also, Kickstarter does indeed know what I like.

Get the Ogre Miniatures Set 1 Kickstarter to $120K! Get me free shipping!

Well, $15 off, but shipping is supposed to be about $12 anyway so if the Ogre Miniatures Set 1 Kickstarter gets that far then it’s free shipping.  And then I can use that money to get the glow-in-the-dark Ogres as add-ons.  So, hey, win-win.

My Patreon microfiction: ‘Birthday.’

I tried to imagine in ‘Birthday‘ how this sort of thing might actually go. After all, everybody knows the value of a first impression, right? And politeness costs a man nothing.  And any other number of cliches, really.

Looking for a great Christmas gift?  Try my Patreon! …OK, that sounds weird.  Still:
