Era: Balam Sci-Fi RPG Up On Kickstarter

I wish I could be a fighter pilot.

But I can live vicariously through my RPGs. And what's better than a fighter pilot? A fighter pilot in space, of course! And that's just what you get to be in Era: Balam, a sci-fi RPG that's up on Kickstarter now.

Era: Hitman RPG Up On Kickstarter

While having an ebook is nice (there's the portability, the searchability, and other such things good about them), I guess I'm just a traditionalist.
