Kickstarters Thread

Why? I've seen >1 that had a late buy-in option. It always pays to contact them on KS, IMLE:thumbsup:!
Exactly. I've contacted more than one to find out that even if they don't have a late buy in, they'll still let you do it. And on a lot of them the late buy in isn't immediately available but does become an option when they have their pledgemanager open.
 
Yeah, one thing I hate about Kickstarts is that there usually isn't a late buy-in option. I can't count the number of times that I found an awesome KS only to find that it had already been closed. :sad:
Late backer option is a thing, but I've noted it's not always an option. :sad: I've had the same experience as a Kickstarter junkie (give me my backer fix!) where like you've I've stumbled upon one late after the official Kickstarter ended.
 
I am really, REALLY tempted. But then I think of how many sets of my dice I'd need to get rid of to justify these. And my existing dice collection is way prettier.

Innovative but weird, at a price where you could get 20 cheap sets or 1-2 fancy sets.

I backed their Roulette Dice.

It turned out ok, but the wheel could have been centered a bit more precise.

In the end it is just an expensive gimmick.

My gut reaction was to think of it as a gimmick while reading the Kickstarter above. Good to know my gut is reading true.
 
hey there folks! We just funded my first TTRPG project on kickstarter on Tuesday -- thought some of you might appreciate!

The Last Caravan is a cars and aliens tabletop role-playing game about a midwinter road trip in the wake of an alien invasion. Starting from the East Coast, you and your fellow travelers will navigate a shattered North America. You’ll explore landscapes transformed by xenoflora, search abandoned towns and crashed spaceships, discover the otherworldly technology called Harmonics, negotiate with newly-formed factions both human and alien, outrun hostile pursuers, and fight for the future of your world.
Your story is about normal people finding heroism under extraordinary pressures. It’s about relationships tested by a crisis, and rediscovering what matters when the world is ending.
Your people need you. Will you join the caravan?

Fans of post-apocalyptic and survival games will find a robust, rules-lite experience: a tense 6-10 session campaign featuring a unique road trip gameplay loop, horizontal progression, and engaging faction dynamics.
Fiction-first roleplayers will find a story world and system that delivers deep interpersonal connections, with relationship-focused character creation, a roleplay-driven central mechanic, and powerful lore that will resonate and matter to characters.
 
A couple of KS that may be of interest to Mörk Borg fans.



The Nankaina one looks kind of interesting though it would seem that Ronin is already going to turn out pretty complete by itself. I like the aesthetic of Mangled Morbid Miscreations but again, not certain I have enough of a 'need' for it to back it.

I couldn't help myself. I backed Mangled Morbid Miscreations. One of the authors tells me they're probably going to include a Fishing mini game/mechanic! Also looks to be useful for solo gaming.

 
Is it tempting you? I know I decided to go in on it. I pass on most DnD related projects these days, but I'll go in on one that has something that might fill a slot in the system that i'd like to see covered/handled. The original books that they did, were a lot like the older Green Ronin or Mongoose books, too much black and gray tones which kinda made it harder to read. This one looks up to date with more easy on the eyes color schemes and fonts.

I decided to also. The flesh is weak.

Its tempting that it is basically the 5E engine for use across a wide range of genres

My core group is fine with different core mechanics, but many rpgers in the wider community like to keep with familar rules, so this has possibilities opening up alot of genres to them
 

This is an example of my weakness and my struggle to overcome it. This looks interesting. But I know little about it, nor the property. It's just appealing. They give little about the system, other than it's 'd20 based'. And in general, d20 as a system has passed me by.

I'm going to try to pass. But who knows how long my willpower will hold out.

You can do it! We believe in you! Deny the d20 heresy!
 
There’s a free QuickStart. Also, based on a European comic, which is usually a good thing in my book.

OK, QuickStart downloaded…it doesn’t really look like D20 to me. It uses d20s, but that doesn’t appear to be the system. I can’t say much more positive or negative though.

Roll a D20/Roll multiple D20's under a target number? Or over a target number?
 
Hey, you know what I absolutely do not need to be finding right now? Another glossy planar swashbuckling 5E setting.



:errr:

I have that on my list too, and have done for a little while.
There are also a few games with flying ships / airships for release for 5e too.
 


Evenson is a really good and respected horror writer, it's cool to see him involved in this kind of project.

Not sure the shipping charges to Canada make this worthwhile for me but I'll pick it up upon wider release for sure.

I'm not backing it myself, but it looked interesting and unique enough to bring it to people's attention here.
 
I got your miniature wargaming right here.



I never played this one, but I've met lots of people with fond memories of the original.

I have the original. Play it withy boys sometimes. Good fun watching discs fly across the room and smash down castle walls.
