If you're playing Dungeons & Dragons and you want some new adventures, you might want to check out the Empyrean Investigations Kickstarter. These are new in terms of them not being published before, but they're also new in terms of them being different than many other adventures out there. "Monster is doing evil things. Go destroy monster," usually sums up a D&D adventure. These are a lot more mystery-themed, where your brains will play as much a part as your brawn.

The base game as well as expansions are up on Kickstarter now.

I read the title of this new RPG that's up on Kickstarter and I just want to put on Hendrix. I'm guessing I'm not the only one. And considering the rather psychadelic nature of the game, that seems to make good sense. Electric Bastionland is a new RPG that's up on Kickstarter now. You find yourself deeply in debt in a city and world that is definitely not what reality makes it out to be. It's hard to summarize in an opening paragraph, you just kinda have to go read about it yourself.

Listening to Meshuggah while typing this seems appropriate. Anyway, Free League Publishing is running a Kickstarter campaign for Vaesen, their new Nordic horror RPG.

You can check it out on Kickstarter now.
