Game to Grow Running Critical Core RPG Kickstarter

Critical Core is a new RPG that's up on Kickstarter. But it's a little different than most, as it was designed with the Autism spectrum in mind.

Limitless NPCs Up On Kickstarter

Limitless Adventures is running a new Kickstarter campaign. In this case, it's Limitless NPCs. Now, as much as it would be cool to actually be limitless, there aren't actually an infinite number of NPCs in the book. That would take too long to print. However, there are over a hundred of them for your 5th edition D&D games, and that's pretty good to fill up quite a few sessions in your games.

Tavern Encounters: The Heroes' Feast RPG Supplement Up On Kickstarter

Tavern Encounters: The Heroes' Feast is a little bit of several things. It's a cook book. It's an encounter guide for taverns in your games. It's a hosting guide.
