Today I’ve got some new detail on a project that I’ve seen advertised in a few different places. The Hammer and the Stake is an ongoing Kickstarter for a game of socialist freedom fighters trying to bring down vampire overlords, all set in 1920s Eastern Europe. It’s an evocative idea for a game and the creator, Chris Gunning of Weaponized Ink was kind enough to answer a few interview questions about the project.Continue reading “Interview with Chris Gunning About The Hammer and the Stake”
The World of Aetaltis campaign is going strong over at Kickstarter and I’m excited to see this setting grow. I’ve been a fan for a while and backed this campaign in the early days. I wanted to see a little behind the curtain, though, so I asked Marc Tassin to answer a few questions. He provided some great answers and I think readers here will be just as excited as I am when the delve into Aetaltis!Continue reading “Interview with Marc Tassin about Aetaltis”
Today I’m pleased to bring you another interview with the fantastic, personable Craig Campbell of Nerdburger Games. I’ve talked to Craig before when his awesome superheroes-and-gangsters game CAPERS was dropping and it has been really well received by gamers. It did well enough that he considered Kickstarting a supplement and it’s a good thing he did because it’s going wild!Continue reading “CAPERS Noir with Craig Campbell”
Today we’re going to be talking about the upcoming game Orun, currently up on Kickstarter! Misha Bushyager of New Agenda Publishing was kind enough to answer a few of my questions but let me cut to the chase: you should go and back this Kickstarter. I did and then I listened to the episodes on She’s a Super Geek and was glad I did so. Then I read this interview and I was doubly-glad I did so. It’s great and I recommend you check it out!
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.
Craig Campbell is the founder and lead designer for Nerdburger Games, a professional RPG author for nearly two decades who just recently published his first game Murders & Acquisitions. Now that Craig’s starting his second Kickstarter he graciously agreed to answer some questions about the new game: CAPERS!
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.
