I’m just a sucker for anything Roman, something I’ve written about more than once. As a result, I’ve been excited about the ongoing Kickstarter for Lex Arcana a best-selling RPG from Italy that is now coming to the English-speaking world. Full disclosure I’ve backed this myself but I also figured other people would want to hear about it before the Kickstarter ends Thursday of next week. That’s why I reached out to Quality Games for some more info!
The upcoming Fate game, A Far Off Land is a modern take on fairy tales with characters spanning both the magical world and the mundane. This is similar to games like City of Mist and Bloodlines & Black Magic but it hits that nice sweet spot that so many Fate games do. It’s straightforward and accessible for an alternative jaunt but rich enough for a deep campaign if you want to go that route. A Far Off Land is available right now as a pre-order on DriveThru RPG and us Kickstarter backers have already gotten our copies, but I’ve got a sneak preview for all of you right now with the book’s talented author, Megan Bennett-Burks.

Kickstarter is an amazing resource for small-scale game developers and roleplayers alike. Of course, finding Kickstarters that are worth backing is difficult and I find as many that I’d never want to back as ones that I like, if not more useless ones. Still, I like to keep my eye out and so it didn’t take long after I encountered Bloodlines & Black Magic to realize that it was one that I wanted to be involved with.
