Capers RPG Deluxe Edition Up On Kickstarter

NerBurger Games is looking to create a deluxe hardcover edition of their award-winning Capers RPG. It's Prohibition, and if you're one to drink alcohol (I'm not, but you do you), it's not a good time to be alive, since to get it, you have to deal with nefarious gangsters... with super powers! That's the world you find yourself in this 1920s game (hey, it's the 20s now, might as well play a game set in the 20s). The Kickstarter campaign to fund the book is running now.

From the campaign:

It’s the 1920s Prohibition Era in the United States. Alcohol is illegal. Organized crime grows at an unprecedented rate as gangsters get rich selling hooch to a thirsty populace. You are one of those gangsters…and you have super-powers!

We successfully Kickstarted the CAPERS RPG in March of 2018. That Kickstarter provided PDFs of the game and a whole bunch of support material, as well as Print on Demand books. In the past couple years, CAPERS has grown and been nominated for awards, and even won one. It's time to take the next step. 

So what's this Kickstarter all about? 

We'd like to create a high-quality hardcover of the CAPERS RPG, something we haven't done before. This requires doing an offset print run on a printing press. This book will feature sewn binding, high-end materials, and richer color. It will be a really lovely book that'll look good, feel good, and stand the test of time, shipped right to your door. 

And of course, you can get the PDF of the game, as well as all of the core game support materials, as part of this Kickstarter. 

We'll get started with printing IMMEDIATELY after the Kickstarter ends. With any luck, we'll be shipping your book to you in just a couple months.

The campaign's about 1/4 of the way to its goal with 29 days left to go.
