Trinity Continuum: AEON RPG Up On Kickstarter

Occasionally, a game will need a new edition. Mechanics that were good for a while don’t hold up as well as had been hoped. The setting can use a bit of polish. Fresh insight is brought in, along with building off the wisdom of the old. In this instance, it’s the Trinity Continuum RPG. They’re up on Kickstarter looking to get a new edition made, and it looks like it’s gonna happen.

The Europa Incident Board Game Up On Kickstarter

The asteroid belt. That area of our solar system that never could quite pull itself together into a planet. The gravitational forces were never quite right. However, the loss of a planet is the gain of various corporations. Various groups are looking to mine those huge space rocks for the valuable minerals therein. That’s what you’ll be looking to do in The Europa Incident, a new board game from Fucina Logica Games that’s up on Kickstarter now.

Midweek Snippets

Still working on getting better from this cold. It always seems to take me longer to get back to 100% than it does days that I’m actually feeling sick. It’s like, “Ok, these are the days I’m definitely sick” and then a week of, “I’m hoping this is the last day of this garbage.”
I’m starting to get my appetite back, though. So I’m going to chow down on some bite-sized gaming stories.

Today in the platter we have: Treasure Towers Dice Towers Up On Kickstarter, Now available – New Ancestral Ruins bases From Tabletop-Art, Necronomicon Dice Up On Kickstarter, and New Nurgle Trays from Battle Foam: Great Unclean One.

Voodoo Games Running Isles of Terror Board Game Kickstarter

When the Conquistadores made their way into the islands of the Caribbean and around South and Central America, there were plenty of dangers among the palm trees. The Natives certainly weren’t always interested in having their riches plundered. There were storms that could wipe out entire islands. Then, of course, there were the ancient gods. Facing all these trials is what you’ll be doing in Isles of Terror, a new board game from Voodoo Games that’s up on Kickstarter now.

5150: Bugs: Into the Tunnels Minis Game Up On Kickstarter

Bugs.
I mean, I realize they’re a vital part of the ecological system and all, but I’d prefer if they didn’t come invading into my apartment. However, as bad as seeing something scurry across your kitchen floor in the pale moonlight may be, it is nothing compared to the bugs one comes across in the depths of space. For those, you’d best get out your plasma rifle. I don’t think a tennis shoe will suffice.
That’s the type of thing you’ll be fighting in 5150: Bugs: Into the Tunnels, a new minis game that’s a team-up between Two Hour Wargames and Acheson Creations. The game’s up on Kickstarter now.

Castles & Crusades: Monsters & Treasures Up On Kickstarter

When your game has been around for 14 years, regularly putting out new material, it’s easy for a new player, or even veterans, to get lost when looking for a specific bit of info. That’s where compendiums come in handy. In this case, Castles & Crusades: Monsters & Treasures looks to bring together all the monsters that’ve been created for the game over the almost decade and a half and give you one, giant tome of fights for your adventurers to take on. The book is up on Kickstarter now.

Manual of Mythology Up On Kickstarter

In folklore, there’s nearly countless spirits, creatures, and other beings that inhabit the world. In the Manual of Mythology, they’ll bring those creatures to your D20 RPG games. It will bring all these “real world” creatures into the mythical realm of your adventures. The book is up on Kickstarter now.

Ascendant Destiny Fantasy RPG Up On Kickstarter

When playing in an RPG, we tend to have a very specific idea of what we want our characters to be. We have a rather clear picture of what they look like, how they act, what their personality is like, what they’re good at. Sometimes, it’s hard for a game to actually make that character live and breathe in the system of the rules. Ascendant Destiny looks to be as flexible as possible with character creation rules, so the character you make is exactly the one you want. The game is up on Kickstarter now.

Monday Terrain Corner

Ooof, it was not the best of weekends, having been sick. Thankfully, even though it’s still pretty early in the morning (as I’m typing this up, anyway), I’m feeling better now. I think I turned a corner on it overnight. We’ll see how the rest of the day goes. I need to heal up. Gotta be ready for my friend to come over next weekend and do some gaming. Also, we’ve got our regular terrain feature for you today.

In the Terrain Corner we’ve got: Axolote Tiles Up On Kickstarter and Woodland Gaming Mat Available From Pwork Wargame.

Suen Ikna: The Known Lands RPG Up On Kickstarter

Language is such an interesting thing. We think something, and then either create a pattern of symbols or a collection of noises, and then what we were thinking is transmitted to other people. In Suen Ikna: The Known Lands, game creator Tariq has created his own language, with its own alphabet, punctuation, and grammar rules, to use in the game. The fantasy RPG setting is up on Kickstarter now.

League of Seekers Horror RPG Up On Kickstarter

There’s a lot of things out there in the dark places that want to get you. Strange, otherworldly things with malevolent intentions.

That’s the story behind League of Seekers, a horror RPG set in an alternate 18th century Europe. The game’s up on Kickstarter now.

UBOOT Board Game Up On Kickstarter

Under the sea.
Under the sea.
There’s lots of dangers for a submarine crew when you’re deep under the sea.
I know, not the lyrics you were thinking when you first started reading this post. But being deep underwater in the cramped confines of a submarine is where you find yourself in Phalanx’s UBOOT board game, which has officially launched its Kickstarter campaign.

The Pit Board Game Up On Kickstarter

Aliens. They’re almost never up to any good. And on Arbuda IV, that’s certainly the case. For there lies The Pit. It’s an alien laboratory that’s conducting all manner of crazy experiments. It’s up to you, the team of Solforce, to go to Arduba IV and destroy The Pit and take out its nefarious scientists once and for all. At least, that’s what you’ll be doing in The Pit, a new sci-fi board game that’s up on Kickstarter now.

The Scarlet Pimpernel: Signature Edition Up On Kickstarter

I dunno. Me being me, all I can think of is “The Scarlet p-p-Pumpernickel.” Because I watched a lot of cartoons growing up. Of course, that character was based on the Scarlet Pimpernel, of which you can now bring that swashbuckling action to your tabletop in Eagle-Gryphon Game’s, The Scarlet Pimpernel: Signature Edition, which is up on Kickstarter now.

Ultimate NPCs for 5th Edition Up On Kickstarter

As I’ve said time and time again, having more resources for the GM is never a bad thing. They have an entire universe to populate while the players have to only worry about their own characters. I know I’ve struggled to come up with all the NPCs that my group might encounter along the way. So it’d be handy to have something like the Ultimate NPCs Guide that’s up on Kickstarter now. It’s over 200 pages of pre-built characters of many different levels you can just drop into your game.

Redshirts, Vol. 2: A Starfinder Comedy Adventure Up On Kickstarter

We all know that if you’re in a sci-fi universe and you’re in a red shirt, your days are numbered. That’s the one piece of apparel that almost guarantees you don’t make it to the end credits. Well, there’s humor to be found in that when you look down at your character and go, “… aww man!” But that’s where you find yourself in the Redshirts, Volume 2 Adventure for Starfinder. It’s up on Kickstarter now.

Astrahys Fantasy Miniatures Game Up On Kickstarter

The last time I took French was my sophomore year of high school. I used it a little later on when some of my staff when I worked at the hospital was Haitian. So, needless to say, it’s rusty and then some. Thankfully, the Astrahys Kickstarter is in both French and English. And the minis look pretty awesome. So I suggest you check out this new fantasy minis game.

Dead ’til Dawn Zombie Survival Horror Card Game Up On Kickstarter

Well, there’s zombies attacking. Damnit, Todd! I told you that you should’ve gotten that cough looked at. Now we have to pool our resources and work together unless we want to become lunch for some walking skin sac. Good thing we played a bunch of Dead ’til Dawn, so that we know what to do.

The Devil’s Level Card Game Up On Kickstarter

As we know from the Bible (as well as many heavy metal songs), the number 666 is associated with forces not so aligned with good things (depending on who you ask/read, it’s the Devil’s number, or the Antichrist’s number, or the Number of the Beast, and so forth and so on). In The Devil’s Level card game, you’re looking to raise your three stats (Depression, Horny, and Genius) each to 6, in which case, you win. The game’s up on Kickstarter now.

Normandy: the Beginning of the End Tactical War Game Up On Kickstarter

The storming of the beaches at Normandy. It’s arguably one of the most important days in world history. Certainly, the entire outcome of WWII could be in question if that invasion hadn’t gone the way it did. As such, every aspect of it has been picked over time and again, both by experts and those that are amateur historians. Gamers also love to pour over every detail, looking at “what if” scenarios. You can do that sort of thing with Normandy: The Beginning of the End, a new tactical war game that’s part of the War Storm Series of games. It’s up on Kickstarter now.

Beer! Beer! Beer! Tiddilly beer! Beer! Beer! Tiddilly beer! Beer! Beer!
The Red Dragon Inn is the place to go when you head into town. The ale flows and there’s plenty of gambling and some light brawling, too. Of course, everyone wants to show they’re the toughest and can handle the most drink. But who will be the last one standing and who will have nasty things drawn on their face while they’re passed out? That’s for you to decide.
SlugFest Games is currently running a Kickstarter for the 7th expansion in the Red Dragon Inn game. It’s a stand-alone set called The Tavern Crew.

New Tribe Added to HATE Kickstarter

In the post-apocalyptic world of HATE, certain things that were once familiar have been twisted and deformed. The very plants that sustained the majority of life on the land became unrecognizable, with tendrils and grasping vines looking to hunt out prey. The result is the Sarrassa, a grotesque tribe that hovers between live and death. This new tribe has been added to the Kickstarter campaign as an add-on.

Nemesis Sci-Fi Board Game Up On Kickstarter

Do you know what nemesis means? A righteous infliction of retribution manifested by an appropriate agent, personified in this case by a ‘orrible bear, me.
Or, in this particular instance, Nemesis means a new semi-cooperative sci-fi board game that’s tearing up the funding over on Kickstarter. Take on the role of a crew member looking to survive horrific aliens while also trying to complete your own, secret goal that may not jive with what your other crew members are trying to do.

Friday Snippets

What a crazy week. Monday off. Tuesday in the office. Wednesday and Thursday at home because of the snow. Today’s back in the office, as I checked the hill at the entrance to my place late Thursday and it’d finally melted enough you could get out. So yeah, kinda odd schedule, but waddyagonnado? It’s winter. That kinda stuff’s gonna happen. It’s also gonna be 60 tomorrow, because this is still Georgia. Also, tomorrow, I’m gonna be doing some gaming. I hope you are, too. And if you’re going to be gaming, you’re going to want to be well-fed on bite-sized gaming stories.

Well, the world’s come to an end again. Damnit, Todd! I told you not to poke at that big, red button! Now humanity’s had to form back into small Tribes in our own, isolated Villages.

Such is the story in HATE, the new board game from CMON that’s up on Kickstarter now.
