Bleak Spirit Fantasy RPG Up On Kickstarter

Bleak Spirit is an RPG with a difference. Well, a few of them, actually. First, you can play with as few as two players, with one playing the role of the world while the other being the traveller within it. It's also expected that you'll swap out roles occasionally. Extra players make up the chorus. Also, the world it happens in is a bit darker than most. It's a bleak landscape where the ancestors of an evil empire dwell. They may not be evil themselves, anymore (not entirely, anyway), but the echoes from that time still linger. You can check out the game on Kickstarter now.

The King of Dungeons Fantasy RPG Up On Kickstarter

I have a rather conversational tone here on TGN, as I'm sure you've noticed. When you read my posts, I would like to think you're reading them as though someone's talking to you, instead of just as text on a screen. Well, The King of Dungeons RPG writers were looking to do the exact same thing with their game. It's a more conversational, less strict, and less "reads like stereo instructions" take on the fantasy RPG genre. It's also up on Kickstarter now.
