Douglas Cole over at Gaming Ballistic just launched a Kickstarter for OSE solo and group play adventures that David Pulver designed. Good people both, and Douglas always runs a good Kickstarter. He communicates well and frequently and he ships a quality product. I've pretty much backed almost everything he's done. I'm interested to see how David's take on these adventures end up looking for OSE and for solo as well.

Do you have any knowledge of what the game is about?
Nope, never played it. But it came out in '82, so I can probably make some very educated guess even without looking at a review. Now I'm curious though...

So is this just a link farm to KS projects, or should we be dropping random KS kvetching in here?

Because I gotta share...

Sure it sucks when someone straight up fails to deliver on their KS product and the project kinda dies.

But it's a whole different kind of suck when a project never really dies but takes so long that by the time it delivers, you don't care anymore.

Looks fun. I got burned by The Melsonian Art Council when I KS one of their books but it never arrived and my query emails have been ignored so I won't be backing them again but I still like Troika!

Worth updating that I reached out to The Melsonian Art Council directly via their site and a friendly chap got back to me and was able to get me my book. Something with the coupon code was refusing to work and he patiently helped out.

I'd still be wary of backing something on KS but would recommend ordering direct from them once a book is out.

Kickstarter and my gmail often fail to work together; order surveys don't arrive - they don't even get shunted to spam, just unfindable. This has held up several rewards. Occasionally, when I get suspicious, I login to Kickstarter and find messages about things having gone out and am able to get things fixed. It seems to happen only with direct communication from Kickstarter; messages from Drivethru and Backerkit arrive on time.

Checking out the games as part of Zinequest and this one caught my eye. I'm getting the Warhol game for print and play to try them out.

This isn't rpg related per se but I know we have some blaxploitation film fans here and the folks at Deaf Crocodile Films have displayed impeccable taste with their bluray releases so far.

This pic alone made me pledge instantly.

Pledged! I always set projects I want to support to remind me because I'm lazy like that but I'm glad to see you made the goal Yeti Spaghetti Yeti Spaghetti!

Thanks!! We received a last-minute donation that put us over the edge. It was actually someone I should have approached earlier in the campaign, but the timing ended up being right for them to make us hit our goal.

I will say this, though. I hope I don't have to do another Kickstarter!! This campaign was a mental and physical strain.

ZineQuest is upon us! Lots of stuff for OSE and Mörk Borg, some interesting looking ones for DCC. I backed this one.

Here's a couple of others that I think look kind of fun or interesting but I haven't backed (yet):

for OSE

for DCC
