Two spiffy-looking Deadlands Kickstarters.

The Deadlands Classic 20th Anniversary Edition and the Deadlands: Good Intentions campaign book. I will not be picking up either, alas – the days of wine and roses are now but a fond memory* – but Deadlands is a fun game and a cool game concept. I’m glad that it’s back… not that it entirely went away, I guess. Ach, ye ken my meanin’, as Terry Pratchett had that one guy say. More or less.  Sorry, the book’s downstairs.  Where was I?

Oh, right, Deadlands Kickstarters.  Go for it. (more…)

The 7th Sea ‘Voyage of Fortune’s Star’ computer RPG Kickstarter.

:sigh: Let me find my wallet.

There’s a couple of early-adopter tiers that will offer a discount if you pledge before the Kickstarter funds.  The Kickstarter will almost certainly fund.  Very possibly very quickly. Note also that they’re definitely making the game anyway – in fact, the game is being made right now.  All of this is going towards funding extra stuff, which is fine by me and presumably all the other 7th Sea fanatics.

The ‘Thank You For Screaming’ Kickstarter.

Greg Stolze – dude who works on stuff like Unknown Armies and Delta Green, which are both coming out in new editions (and thus partially redeeming what has otherwise been the Year From Hell*) – has a Kickstarter going on for his fiction collection “Thank you for screaming.” I got his “The Forgotten Monk” book earlier; Stolze can write. Check it out.

*And Hell doesn’t want it back, either. Can’t say that I blame ’em.

The ‘Sun Spots – A Call of Cthulhu RPG Scenario’ Kickstarter.

Well, this looks interesting:

Dude did a Cthulhu Dark Kickstarter that I liked, and I seem to recall that he got it done and out on time.  So, not a bad risk, here.  I don’t know if I’m going to go in for the thirty buck print version, though.

The ‘DRAGONLOCK 2: Fantasy Village Terrain for 3D Printers’ Kickstarter.

Got turned onto this one by an online friend of mine.  I’m not backing it – I don’t have a 3-D  printer – but it looks like a pretty sweet deal for somebody who has one and who games.  I’m also told that 3-D printers have been going down in price lately, which means that I guess Steve Jackson Games was justified in bumping us up to Tech Level 8…

This ‘Loaded Dice’ Kickstarter TERRIFIES me.

I would be DOOMED if I signed up for it. DOOMED.  DOOOOOOMED…

God, imagine rolling for magic missile damage with these things. You would be lucky to survive a single combat before ending up on the floor…

The Penny Arcade/Lone Shark Games ‘Thornwatch’ Kickstarter.

I ain’t buying it – like the idea; don’t have the dinero – but good golly but look at that crowdfunding well.

Turned it on yesterday, and they’re already 300% funded. Penny Arcade is kind of frightening, sometimes.  In a good way, to be sure; but they are the Alpha Ultra-Ninja Grandmaster Flash Nerds, huh? – Said he, with pure admiring envy in his voice.

The ‘Dungeon Fantasy Roleplaying Game, Powered by GURPS’ Kickstarter.

Well, dag.  Guess I’m failing my Will Roll on this one…

Last hours of the Widdershins: Find The Lady Kickstarter.

It’s over tomorrow. I love the Widdershins webcomic and I would not mind in the slightest being in a position someday where I could be able to help adapt it for a RPG sourcebook. In the meantime, this is a cool project and Kate Ashwin gets these things out on time.

Last two days of the Apocalypse Campaign Guide (Savage Worlds) Kickstarter.

The Apocalypse Campaign Guide (Savage Worlds) looks righteous, and worth backing. I’ve tossed in. Check it out.

The ‘Eschaton’ apocalyptic cult game Kickstarter.

It’s a bit rich for my blood – sixty bucks for a board/card game about rival dark cults at the end of the world is a bit much, especially since I know that I won’t play it – but danged if it doesn’t look entertaining. They had a few copies at GenCon that promptly sold out, but the Kickstarter has already started:

The aesthetic is all very medieval metal, if that makes any sort of sense.  The kind of artwork where you don’t bother with opening up any color tubes besides black and brown. But again, it looks fun.
