Last hours of the Monster Hunter International RPG Kickstarter

And if they hit $125K, everybody in the Monster Hunter International RPG Kickstarter who is getting physical book (ahem) also gets a patch.  It’s a very nice patch. I’d rather like one.

Last week of the Dragonlock 3 Kickstarter.

If I had a 3D printer, I’d probably have gotten into this Kickstarter. And I’m not getting a 3D printer, sorry.  I have no room for it. It will gather dust.  I know this about myself, sorry.

Still: Dragonlock 3 looks pretty, what-what? Welcome to the future.

Quote of the Day, You Just Have To Laugh edition.

The Alas Vegas Kickstarter has been a thin slice of Hell for its creator. Remarkably so, in fact: I’m not a superstitious man, but I have to wonder whether the universe saw the description “an RPG of bad memories, bad luck & bad blood” and decided to take it as a challenge.  Anyway, the poor bastard running this has now discovered that his non-American hardcover books came back from the printer in clumps, so all of those had to be pulped; and the American softcovers (which is what I pledged for) all decided to go to Reno, and nobody knows why.

If you want to get @SJGames’ Conspiracy Theory, get in on the Kickstarter now.

Because Steve Jackson Games will not be putting Conspiracy Theory into distribution. It funded, and even hit stretch goals — but there apparently isn’t enough interest in it to justify a mass printing. So if you wanted it, you should probably hit Kickstarter within the next four hours.  It closes at 6 PM EDT today, so there’s still a window.

The 7th Sea: Khitai Kickstarter is live.

Basically, 7th Sea: Khitai is going to be China for 7th Sea  — and not Legend of the Five Rings, which is off doing its own revival somewhere else, I believe.  That was more Japanese, anyway.  This one looks very wuxia:

Which is good, because I like wuxia.  In other 7th Sea news: the proofs for its The New World supplement are out, and it would appear that they didn’t forget that I pledge drived for the ultimate birthday / anniversary / Christmas present for my wife. I can’t wait to see the picture that will be in the final version.

A week and a half to go on the Conspiracy Theory Kickstarter.

Conspiracy Theory, for those who don’t remember, is a card game from Steve Jackson Games about, well, conspiracy theories:

This sort of thing is more or less firmly within SJG’s wheelhouse, and I have high hopes for it.  Less than two weeks to go and still needs a couple more grand to fund, so if it sounds interesting, go ahead.  I plan to break this out with my regular gaming group…

The Dragonlock 3: Dangerous Lairs Kickstarter.

Friend of a friend is running this one: as you can guess, Dragonlock 3: Dangerous Lairs is the latest in a run of Kickstarters for 3D printing RPG/miniatures terrain.  …And my twenty year old self simply would not be able to understand why I don’t own a 3D printer.  It’s not the money, 20 Year Old Me; it’s not the money, although a couple of hundred bucks isn’t chicken feed.  It’s the household space/time ratio.  I’m not going to spend enough time at the 3D printer to justify the space it’d take up in the craft room*.

Anyway: check it out. It all looks really, really pretty.

The SJ Games ‘Conspiracy Theory’ Kickstarter.

Very clever, the way that they set the Conspiracy Theory Kickstarter up:

Early-bird supporters can get either five, three, or one buck off, depending on how quickly they hit that support button.  Not that it would have mattered, in my case; I was determined to not back this puppy until at least the Dungeon Fantasy stuff was in the mail.  …It went into the mail today, according to the message that I’ve just gotten.  And the Munchkin Shakespeare stuff has shown up, just in time for me to give it as a present; so, well played, Steve Jackson Games.  Well played.

Five days left on the Mysterion 2 Kickstarter.

At 45%, but they don’t need much, so Mysterion 2 is still doable. Christian-themed speculative fiction-themed anthologies.  It’d be good to have more of that.

Anybody play Stars Without Number? There’s a Kickstarter for the revised edition. It any good?
