The Imposters is more than just a single RPG book. It’s actually a collection of 7 different games, including both tabletop RPGs as well as some LARPs. Some of the games are new, while others are being retouched and updated. And these aren’t just some thrown-together games, either. They’ve won awards such as ENnies, Golden Cobras, and 200WordRPG contests. The book is up on Kickstarter now.
From the campaign:
The Imposters is an anthology of seven tabletop and live-action roleplaying games from seven different designers. Some of these games are brand new; some are revised and updated versions of games that have won prestigious indie gaming awards like the ENnies, Golden Cobra, and the 200WordRPG contest. All seven games offer a play experience you’ve never had before, which is why we think you should back this project now.
This Kickstarter campaign is raising money to pay all nine contributors (seven designers, an editor, and a layout artist) a fair wage. Each contributor is being paid royalties, which means the more we raise, the more each contributor earns. If we pass our initial goal, we will add additional art and game content as stretch goals to thank you for your support. Our first stretch goal is additional illustration by designer/artist Tim Hutchings.
The Kickstarter is about 1/5 of the way to their goal with still 29 days left to go.
