PenguinComics Launches Science Fiction Mini Adventure Cards Kickstarter

You all know I’m a big fan of items that can help GMs along in their mission of making a good game for their players. Pre-made adventures, maps, and other materials can really cut down the prep-time needed to run a game. Well, J. over at PenguinComics is making it so your sci-fi games are ready to go at a moment’s notice. They’ve launched a Kickstarter campaign for a set of Sci-Fi Mini-adventure cards, as well as aids for coming up with sci-fi corporation names, NPC names, and more.

From the Kickstarter:

Kickstarter Campaign for our Sci-fi/Cyberpunk Mini Adventure Cards.

This Poker-sized card deck includes 50 cards, full color, with:
* 40 Mini Adventures
* 10 MegaCorp logotypes
* 150 Small business names
* 150 MegaCorp names
* 300 NPC names

Great GM resource for any sci-fi/cyberpunk/tech-noir setting. The mini adventures are easily expanded upon or edited. Use them as they are and improvise – or edit them into campaigns, using the adventure texts as seeds.

The 10 MegaCorp Logotypes add flavor to any setting, and the 600 names are easily used random in any sci-fi-themed roleplaying game.

Small $500 goal (though campaign is in Swedish kronor, due to Kickstarter rules).

The Kickstarter campaign is up and running now. It’s set to go for another 29 days.

    Or for the price of having internet access you can go to dozens of random generator websites to make your own.

      Hi Michael!

      Thanks for taking the time to check out the project and commenting on it.

      It’s true that there are some truly amazing random generators out there! But everyone is different. Some people enjoy the fact that this is a physical product.

      Using cards during the game might in some cases be easier and faster – especially when it comes to a deck like this that combines several different things – as random names, adventures and graphic logotypes.

      Not only can you base your adventure on one of these cards – but if you go in another direction during that play, you can always draw another card and continue from there…

      Now, with the added weapon icons and traits, this deck can bring in even higher value for the GM.

      If you have specific ideas on how to keep improving this deck, please post a comment with your ideas at the Kickstarter campaign page:

      The product is now fully funded! We got 100% of our goal within 5 days, and keeps growing! THANKS to all backers!!

      / Pingo,
