Yesterday was the first time I’d gotten a chance to get in an RPG session since November. People were just way too busy with things, or were sick, or something else came up. It happens. Sometimes, you’ve only got yourself around to RP with. That’s where a game like Journey to the Overland comes in. It’s a solo RPG that’s up on Kickstarter looking to fund a new 2nd edition of the game.
About the campaign:
Journey To The Overland: The Solo Tabletop Roleplaying Game has announced the launch of a follow Kickstarter to its immensely successful 2014 Kickstarter called Journey To The Overland: Redux. Journey To The Overland is a game inspired by Dwarfstar’s Barbarian Prince but also includes elements of games like Lone Wolf and Magnunmund, Dragonquest, Conan the Barbarian and of course Dungeons and Dragons. In short, if you like Gloomhaven or enjoyed Legacy of Dragonholt you will love Journey To The Overland.
