Crowdfunding


A Scout is always prepared. That's true in this world as it is in the Wyrdwood. There, there's a lot more talking trees and magical animals to befriend. But the quest is still to get those merrit badges. And that's what you'll be doing in Scouts of the Wyrdwood Forest. The Kickstarter campaign for this new RPG is back up and running now.

Go! Go! Power Rangers!

*wicked guitar solo*

If you're a fan of the Power Rangers (and if you're in an age group below mine, it's a pretty safe bet that you are), you've probably played the Power Rangers: Heroes of the Grid game from Renegade Game Studios. Now, you may be looking for more mighty-morphin' action, and they're here to bring it to you with new expansion sets up on Kickstarter now.

You've maybe checked out the indie-produced video game Hyper Light Drifter. People seem to really enjoy it. So, why not bring it to tabletops with an RPG? At least, that's what Metal Weave Games thought, and I don't see anything wrong with it, either. They're currently running a Kickstarter to get it made. And they're running a public test of the rules, so you can even go download those and check it out before you pledge.

Many of you have thoroughly enjoyed the Root board game from Magpie Games. But perhaps you've wanted to get even more involved with the world. Go down into it and really explore the space, to become one of the characters. Well, soon, you'll be able to, as there's a Root RPG in the works. And you can get in on the action now on Kickstarter.

The folks over at Starling Games aren't just bringing you one expansion for their Everdell board game with their latest Kickstarter campaign. No, they're bringing you two! Want to leave the valley and strike out for unknown territory, you can head to Spirecrest. If you're wanting to bring more people into the game than ever, grab Bellfaire, with room for 5-6 player games.

What's your type? Tall, dark, and handsome? Gothy vampire? Bookworm? Chubby chef? All of the above? Are you looking for someone special to enter your life? Then Hey Cutie might be the game for you. It's a new dating sim card game that's up on Kickstarter now. Find your perfect match!

Adopt. Adapt. Improve. Words to live by. Growth. Learning. Change. That's what we should all strive for. Even our games should do that. It's with that in mind that Nightfall Games is bringing you a Kickstarter to fund the 2nd edition of SLA Industries. Sure, the original won some awards, but they knew they could do better.

How well do you know your friends? I mean, really know them (ok, maybe not -biblically- know them, but really, really know them)? And, almost as importantly, what do you think about them? And are you willing to tell them exactly what you think? If so, then Burning Bridges might just be the party card game for you.

The year is 2670 and humanity is still hanging on past two near-extinction events. They have spread out into the solar system with trips even further out beginning. It's into this time that you find yourself in TerrorForm, a new horror-sci-fi RPG setting and system from Argonauts Incorporated. You can check out this new RPG on Kickstarter now.

In an enchanted glade, all predatory animals have been held at bay, letting everything else thrive. But that barrier is breaking down. How will the animals that have come to make the glade home make it through? That's up to you in Hidden Heroes, a new one-shot RPG adventure using 5th Edition rules that's up on Kickstarter now.

Down there, deep, underneath, below the world, there's all manner of twisting passages in the vast undercity. But as much as there's your (almost) certain doom, there's also the thing you've been looking for your entire life. Everything you've ever wanted is there, along with everything that could ever kill you. Will you dare its dark depths? Well, you will in Heart: The City Beneath, a new RPG that shares a world with Spire. The new stand-alone RPG is up on Kickstarter now.

In an alternate vrsion of the 1960s, America made it to the Moon, but that's just peanuts compared to having landed on an exoplanet circling an exoplanet around Ursae Majoris over a year before. Unfortunately, the Russians had gotten there first. And the Japanese were close behind the US. Now, the race is on to colonize this new planet. That's the story behind Godspeed, a new board game from Pandasaurus that's up on Kickstarter now.

BrokenDice has been working hard creating a new RPG that they are bringing to Kickstarter soon. It's called The Nuadan Chronicles and it's a series that blends sci-fi with magic and a touch of post-apocalyptic all thrown into one. Head over to their website and check out just what this new system will bring.

<whoop! whoop! whoop!>

Ok ,so the Henshin Sentai-themed RPG doesn't specifically have bunches of giant robots in it, since not all Sentai shows do, but let's face it, it's basically a given. Anyway, if you're looking for some super-Sentai action and want to play around in a diceless RPG, Henshin might just be for you. The game has been out for a while as a .pdf, but they're looking to print it and expand on it with this Kickstarter campaign.

Stranded here on Earth, the aliens are slowly trying to get fuel for their ship. In the meantime, tensions are high as they're restricted to a certain area. But how will humans and aliens continue to get along? That's for you to figure out in the District 9 board game from Weta Workshop that's up on Kickstarter now.

If you had the ability to terraform a planet, how would you make it look? Tons of forests? Giant oceans? Rolling plains? Soaring mountains? Well, in Myraclia, you get to create your own planet. Well, not just your own. Others are looking to create their own paradise as well. But, in the end, only one's vision of the planet will be achieved. This new terraforming game is up on Kickstarter now.

Winter is coming.

I realize that's the tag line for an entirely different fantasy world, but it's what's going on here, too. Free League Publishing is running a Kickstarter campaign for The Bitter Reach, their new (and massive) expansion for the Forbidden Lands RPG. What does it have in its 200+ pages? New rules, new monsters, new encounters, and an entire campaign set in the cold reaches of a new region. The new book is up on Kickstarter now.

It's Friday the 13th. It's also a full moon.

Be careful out there, everyone. O,o

In the meantime, I'm going to hunker in my bear cave and munch on some bite-sized gaming stories.

Today on the platter we have: Elder Wood Running Spellbook Minis Dice and Miniatures Boxes Kickstarter, Handmade Zodiac Gemstone Dice Up On Kickstarter, Bloodstone Dice Up On Kickstarter, Vacant Realms Steampunk and Fantasy Miniatures Up On Kickstarter, and 5mm Metal Micro Dice Up On Kickstarter.

Pretty much all of us carry around a little supercomputer in our pockets. We've got stats that show that most of you are reading this sentence on a portable supercomputer now. Why not integrate them into the party games that you play when you get together with friends? That's the thought behind Game of Phones, a party game that's been redesigned and is back up on Kickstarter now.

The next in the Omen Saga of cards games from Kolossal Games is up on Kickstarter now. Omen: Heir to the Dunes, as one would expect, takes you to the mythical land of ancient Egypt. Anubis and Horus are about to go to war to see which will reign supreme, light or dark.

Though I'm kinda partial to dark, I guess it'd be good to still have light around, too.

The game is up on Kickstarter now.

Ancient Greece. It was a hotbed of new ideas and ways of thinking, with many philosophers coming into their own whose names would go down with history. Philosophia, a new sandbox board game up on Kickstarter, takes you to that ancient time and asks you how you would spread your new ideas around the region.

I love pancakes. Hell, just the other day, I made a huge-ass one for breakfast. They're so light, fluffy, and tasty. And you can prepare them with all sorts of extras. From different types of fruit, to nuts, and chocolate. Though keeping all the orders right when you're a cook might be rough. But that's just what you'll have to do in Flapjack Flipout, a new family dexterity game that's up on Kickstarter now.

The party comes across a strange bottle. It's got some strange liquid in there, obviously a potion of some kind. But what kind of potion? Sure, there's the regular healing potions and such, but that's so mundane. Why not really go out there with it? That's what the Book of Unusual Potions helps with. The book's up on Kickstarter now.

Halfway there. We're halfway back to the weekend. And even though this is a full week, as opposed to last week's shortened week, it already feels like it's going by much faster. That's not a complaint, mind you. Especially since this weekend includes D&D. If I'm going to have the energy to keep trucking along, I need to top off with some bite-sized gaming stories.

Today on the platter we have: Vesuvius Media Running Tokens and Coins Kickstarter, CNC Machined Brass Dice Up On Kickstarter, and Kraken's Weekly Price Drop Now Live.

A corrupt Emperor, pitting his people against one-another. An exiled hero, whom the populace hopes makes a return soon. Demons, bound after an ancient war, trying to re-enter our world. That's what awaits you in Yohei, a new skirmish game coming to Kickstarter next week from Draco Ideas and Eclipse Editorial.
