New Games Jun' 19

edited June 2 in Stuff to Watch
I present to you the new Crowdfunding Collection no. 108, including every tabletop project started between 05/27 and 06/02.

This collection contains a bunch of role-playing crowdfundings I am interested in. Like Rust Hulks which offers space exploration trucking style – a mixture of Alien, Firefly with parts of Star Wars – while being Powered by the Apocalypse. Which is an enticing combination. I am as well tempted by Quietus, a role-playing game that aims to provide „melancholic horror“ in the style of movies like Oculus or The Strangers. It’s fitted for smaller group of one to two players plus a GM and is designed to be experienced in One -Shots, system-wise it’s one of the first „Powered by the Dark“ systems – named after Blades in the Dark – I’ve noticed. Speaking of Blades, there is the BLADE RPG, while being a fantasy game I am still drawn in by the beautiful artwork, an interesting system and the sympathetic video presention.
The StoryMaster’s Tales „Weirding Woods“ is the first of three… I’ll call ‚em „hybrid rpgs“. With Weirding Woods being more traditional and basically combinig tabletop rpg with board game elements in a fantasy setting. Escape in the Dark on the other hand provides a Science Fiction setting and offers an interesting mix of tabletop rpg, game book and Hands of Fate (the videogame, imho). Last but not least of the three is CircleTales Adventures, an interesting storytelling game in the more literal sense.
If you like Larp and Poker, take a look at The Deal – which aims to bring both together. I personally do recommend the Patreon of Blood on the Thames. They do offer really cool V5 actual plays and I think their efforts deserve support. If you like The Dark Eye, the translation of the famous German rpg, you should considering checking the Magic of Aventuria sourcebook by Ulisses – from my understanding an integral part to the enjoyment of the setting and game.
There are, of course, many more cool projects, just take a look:

  • I present to you the new Crowdfunding Collection no. 109, including every tabletop project started between 06/02 and 06/09.

    This week I’d really like to highlight Adventures in Austerion. The game offers stunning artworks and is a fascinating mix of a boardgame and a tabletop rpg without loosing the latter identity. It’s available in English and French and I backed it the moment I found the project, I do highly recommend checking it out. Another interesting game is Sleepaway. The game focuses on campsite horror story and does so by using the Belonging Outside Belonging System from Avery Alder, thus I am tempted. If you are looking for a traditional approach, check out Dungeons & Delvers. It offers exploring dungeons, killing monsters and looting all with a system inbetween D&D 3E and 5E. If you like D&D5E you’ll find that both Amazing Adventures and Rocket Age RPG use the system. Amazing Adventures aims to offer a setting neutral approach, enabling you to play horror, SF, modern, pulp and games set in other genres. In contrast Rocket Age does focus on the titular genre. Battlestations DIRTSIDE isn’t a D&D 5E yet am wonder how much of an RPG is it at all, as game set in a SciFi setting boarders the line of board- and tabletop roleplaying game. Native American Role-Playing Game is a more ttrpg and has a very interesting pitch, yet the presentation of the project took my enthusiasm down and I haven’t got trust that it will deliver. Stormforged on the other hand looks way better and appears to deliver a solid fantasy game.
    There are more cool projects like Necronomiconis by Artisano Del Reyes (on Kickstarter and Verkam) which aims to produce a stunningly beautiful Cthulhu accessoire book. Then there’s the French urban fantasy game Cities and Crimes, which I would have backed in a blink of an eye, were they to deliver to Germany. Thus I have to hope that enough French, Belgian and Swiss gamers back it so it comes to be.
    There are many, many more cool crowdfundings, see for yourself:

  • I present to you the new Crowdfunding Collection no.110, including every tabletop project started between 06/10 and 06/23.

    My attendance to NordCon (a German role-playing game convention), delayed the collection for a week, thus it comes with none fewer than a total of 70 projects,… let’s get to them.

    I’d like to briefly highlight the gamebook Kurai Jikan Eidolon (in German) which still requires some funding. I do know the author, followed his previous crowdfunding campaigns on a different platform and do recommend the project based on his skills as well as his ability to fulfill his projects.

    Back to the English project, I did back Wicked City. The game uses a system based on Blades in the Dark and spices it up by allowing the players to essentially act as Dungeon Keeper. I liked both and thus couldn’t resist. Neither could I resist The Roleplayer’s Guide To Heists, which is a system-agnostic sourcebooks. I tend to regularly have groups trying to do a heist of one kind or another, and think the guide will be mighty useful.
    Next to those two I almost backed a lot of more narrative games – which I grouped under „Story Game Role-Playing Games“. Like Hearts of Magic: Threads Entangled, a game that places the players in the tumultous conflicts between fey-nobles, arcane bureaucrats and anarchist witches – a setup that does sound fun. On a way more serious note I might back into Red Carnations on a Black Grave, which sees the players assume the role of French resistance member during World War II. The game takes a cue from Montesgur 1244 and offers historic characters to explore the conflicts. Then there’s the way more „fantastic“ Bleak Spirit, a game that aims to be a kind of (Dark) Souls-like. Yet, not by providing the players with very difficult fights, and more by providing a setting which melancholy and darkness is inspired by the one of the Souls series. Then there is What We Were, which shares the investigation of the characters personality with Bleak Spirits, while not being as bleak. Well, and there’s Troll’s Teeth, I have no idea how it works, but I am impressed by the use of wedges for the game mechanic.
    With the, kind of avalanch, of fantasy rpgs, I found the Science Fiction approach of The ADVANCED kind of fresh. Among the fantasy games I like the design and graphics of Zafir: Tactical Roleplaying Game, Children of the Beast and The King of Dungeons – they do look very neat. Yet I do would recommend that you take a glance at Emberlord, Realm of the Livingstones, Age of Hunters, Awoken and The Awakening RPG as well, if you like fantasy.
    There is an English gamebook by the name of Escape from Darkmoor and plenty more, interesting, cool projects worth checking out, just take a look:
