Monte Cook Games

The point of games is to have fun. Otherwise, we're just people sitting around playing pretend with convoluted rules for no reason. During your RPG sessions, topics can come up that won't always sit well with others. So, how does one approach such topics, and how do GMs make sure that what they're running works for everyone? That's what Consent in Gaming, a new book from Monte Cook Games looks at. You can pick up your copies now.

Monte Cook Games is looking to bring some giant robots to your fantasy RPG games, and I'm 100% ok with that. They're running a Kickstarter for Arcana of the Ancients, a science-fantasy book in the style of Numenera, over to 5th Edition.

Your Best Game Ever is a sourcebook with a difference. Most RPG books give you info to use in your game, and in a way, this is the same. However, instead of just items to use, it's actual strategies to get the most out of your RPG experience. It's not a list of new types of swords, but things you can do to increase the fun and immersion for everyone at the table. And if anyone knows about this kind of stuff, it's Monte Cook. The book is up on Kickstarter now.
Many parents are starting to get their kids into gaming. But it can be hard to find the right game. You don't want anything too complex. You probably don't want anything with too violent of theme. So finding something just right can be difficult. Well, No Thank You, Evil! is made with younger gamers in mind. It's even won awards for it. Now, a reprint of the game is up on Kickstarter. They're also adding in new expansions.
Monte Cook Games is running a Kickstarter campaign for Invisible Sun, their new mystery-filled RPG. This ambitious project takes gaming to a different plane, filled with secrets both within the game and within the game components. It is also designed to tackle that biggest of gaming problems: getting an entire group together on a regular basis for a session.
Monte Cook Games is running a Kickstarter campaign for an exclusive box set for their science-fantasy RPG, Numenera. The campaign has only 10 days left, but they're closing on being 6x funded. So there's plenty of stretch goals and extras to check out.

Numenera is a tabletop RPG, science-fantasy game that is set in a super-distant future. Players explore the earth and find wondrous artifacts left by past civilizations.
Monte Cook Games has launched a Kickstarter campaign for The Strange, a new tabletop RPG. They're also well over their funding goal and so have stretch goals up for the next 36 days.


From the campaign:

Monte Cook Games is thrilled to announce its next big tabletop roleplaying game: The Strange! Written and designed by Bruce Cordell and Monte Cook, The Strange is a game that crosses multiple worlds, called recursions, which player characters can explore and defend. In The Strange, your characters change with each world they travel to, taking on new aspects suited to help them function in that recursion's unique laws and structures. But dangers found in these recursions threaten not only characters, but also our very own Earth. If characters persevere, however, they can not only save themselves and Earth, they may even gain the ability to create a recursion of their own!

If you enjoyed the inspiring scope of games like Planescape, Gamma World, or Numenera, or mind-bending scenarios like Moorcock's Eternal Champion series, the TV show Fringe, or movies like the Matrix, you're going to love The Strange.
