Dragons Conquer America RPG Up On Kickstarter

I had a lot of history classes back in college and grad school (I mean, I do have a history degree, after all). And while the class I had on the Aztecs was very fascinating, I have to admit that it could’ve used some dragons. Well, obviously, we don’t actually have dragons as part of our history, but that doesn’t mean we can’t inject them into our fantasy recreations of history. That’s just what you get to do in Dragons Conquer America. This alternate-history RPG is up on Kickstarter now.

Dragons Conquer America RPG Up On Kickstarter

I’m a big fan of unique settings and stories for games. There’s lots of fantasy settings and sci-fi settings and such. But there’s not many that I can think of that include 16th century Central America and various dragons and mythical creatures that have started roaming the land. But that’s just what you’ll find in Dragons Conquer America. You’ve got the Conquistadors. You’ve got the Aztecs. But you’ve also got feathered serpents and many other legendary beasts. You can get your copy of the game over on Kickstarter now.

Midweek Snippets

Well, I don’t know about you, but my week’s already been pretty full of gaming stuff, mostly yesterday. I ended up having my order from Miniature Market come in (containing the Curse of the Statuettes adventure), and then Ray got back from Origins and I got some Muse on Minis tokens for Guild Ball as well as some expansions for Ascension. Now… just need to get to the weekend where I’ll be able to really take a look at all of it, and maybe manage to get them some use.

Friday Snippets

Man, it is busy over here on this side of the screen. Pretty much all week there’s been stuff going on. I’m sure that’s part of why it feels like it’s really flown by… And I’ve still not really gotten a handle on what I’m going to do with my D&D group tomorrow! Gah!

Ether Wars Relaunches on Kickstarter

Not every Kickstarter is successful the first time around. Some people would say, “well, you didn’t make it the first time. I guess you’re finished.” I say, “Nay nay!” (RIP John Pinette) Many Kickstarter campaigns start out with their first project not making it. But after some refining, retooling, and reconfiguring, they relaunch and can come out further ahead than they ever had dreamed with the first campaign. Will that happen with Ether Wars? Only with your help. They’re back up on Kickstarter now.

Faith Sci-Fi RPG up on Kickstarter

Burning Games is running a Kickstarter for Faith, their new sci-fi RPG game. The game uses its own system, which is card-based rather than dice-driven (or diceless for you Amber fans out there). Characters are special people, chosen by their god, to carry out their war with the other gods.
The campaign is looking to raise £30k, and they’ve got 26 more days on the clock.
