Worra Realms is a new tabletop RPG over on Kickstarter and they’re looking for funding. Go take yourself a looksee.

From the campaign:

This revolutionary tabletop RPG is easy to learn, fast to play and unlike any RPG you’ve ever played.

Worra Realms is a revolutionary 2-6 player tabletop RPG that does away with character sheets and huge guide books. Players set off on exciting quests, delving into forests, caves and dungeons in search of danger, treasure and glory.

Game sessions can be setup in only a few minutes and last from 1-3 hours on average. Worra can be played with or without minis and is as simple or as complicated as you want it to be. It’s a perfect game for new players and seasoned GM’s alike.

The Standard Set contains 200 cards designed to aid a creative game master in creating and running a fun and exciting campaign. The Elite Set adds to the fun with 300 additional cards for creating characters.

    No more kickstarters.

    There should be a separate feed for Kickstarters and Indigo.

    Anyways… power to them but I recall hearing from Mongoose and a few other companies that the RPG market is very flat now.

      That’s a good idea – if we segregate the kickstarters and similar, then those of us who want actual gaming news can enjoy that, and those who want to fund whatever is happening can go that route.

      RPGs died with the monstrosity that was D&D 4.0. Wizards blew it on an epic scale. Jumped a shark so big it makes Jaws look like a guppy.

        Large scale games didn’t die when GW flopped Warhammer 8th. RPGs should survive. Sure, you’ll need to use imagination instead of minis, but it should be fine.

          RPGs are far from dead. FFG is bringing out Star Wars, PP are going gang busters with the IKRPG, and there are a lot of smaller companies who are going strong as well.

          WotC may be in a tenuous place after the DnD4 fiasco, but I’m sure the fans will come flocking back once they release the next edition.

        RPGs aren’t dead, just the two big, old powerhouses of WotC and White Wolf. I’m surprised WotC didn’t learn that gamers don’t like it when you totally retcon their entire gaming experience from when White Wolf tried to reboot the whole World of Darkness line. We clamor for change, but not too much change.

    There’s some pesky Malifaux RPG coming as well. Yeah, very much not dead. Pathfinder sells like gangbusters too.

    Note:

    I said “VERY FLAT” and this comes from some manufacturers. It means the volume is decreasing. Same can be said for some miniatures games… we might see 50 different games but if the total volume is down… or “flat” as in non-growth… well it is what it is.

    I have just heard and seen a few bits of news that have said RPG sales are flat. That comes from “second tier” manufacturers… Mongoose was the one who first comes to mind. Owner’s comment is things looked flat also for other companies he was in talks to. No idea who those are.

      On one hand, the core audience is aging, and it is both easier to schedule a board game and more inclusive of spouses and non-RPG types. I’m lucky to fit in two AD&D sessions in a month. Hasbro made a bid for younger audiences with 4th edition, but I think that followed TSR’s old plan with 2nd ed. — pump out the books and who cares if they end up dormant in a 12-year-old’s closet after a couple months. I’ve found that people who quit the hobby like that are very unlikely to return.

      Still, I am willing to bet that the transition from FLGSs to online merchants is hurting RPGs most of all. It’s pretty easy to get excited about a video game or high-end board game just by looking at the pictures online, but with 300 pages of rules, you really need to touch the volume and flip through the contents. RPGs always tended to be impulse buys for me. I’m excited waiting for a FF game in the mail, but waiting for a hardback book doesn’t share the same appeal.

    Flat. Comatose. Dead.
