After going to support the dwarven forge one (I need to form up another game group sometime in the near future, what with all the minis from reaper and now these dungeon tiles), I saw this one for sails of glory advertised

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1402889231/sails-of-glory-miniatures-ship-combat?ref=live

Basically, you get a bunch of ship models that I figured people might enjoy for use in a pirate campaign or something. I can even possibly see people combining that games rules into a naval game based in the realms where cannons are more common.

This idea also brought up the idea that I'd love to see someone make simple flat printouts of D&D class ships that you can use minis with. Maybe someone knows of such already. Anyway, just figured I'd share the find in case anyone's interested.

I find this kickstarter quite intriguing. It seems as though it is a mix and match stock art (created by the creator) to create portraits of you characters. The nice thing is, I think it would work well for games like Baldur's Gate and Neverwinter Nights as well (two games that I spent way too much time trying to find the right portrait for my character on).

I backed the Larry Elmore kickstarter, and just got an update that apparently he (along with Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman) had developed a campaign world called Sovereign Stone, and there must have been some novels about it. I've never heard much about it, though I do recognize some of the paintings. The update states that a group is going to be developing the game world further along with pathfinder rules. I figured some might find it of interest. They're only looking for $10,000 and they're already at $7,000, so it should get funded. Looks like for $50 you can get a bunch of PDF books, or for more you can get start getting the physical books (eventually some signed versions). BTW, if anyone is familiar with Sovereign Stone (I'm not), feel free to fill in any details.

According to his posts on Facebook, it was funded within 8 hours.

I'm interested, but we again have the issue of the print books being pretty pricy.

yeah, given I know nothing of the campaign world, I wouldn't go past $50 if I did get it to just get the PDF's and read them on a tablet. However, since its funded, if the stretch goals get interesting, it could drawn me in.

I read and enjoyed the Sovereign Stone trilogy (and it was nice to finally meet Shademahr, considering how much I like the painting Shademahr Encounters Baakish Va), so I am interested in this KS.

So someone bought the movie rights to one of Jack Chick's "publications" and is doing a Kickstarter on it: RPGs are Evil - Dark Dungeons: The Movie!

quote:
If you're not familiar with Dark Dungeons you can read it in its entirety here;

DARK DUNGEONS: THE COMIC

But all you really need to know is that it sets out to show what Jack Chick knows to be the truth behind role-playing. It shows that;

*Playing RPGs can make you gain real life magic abilities

*If you gain a high enough level you will be invited to join a secret cult

* Gamers whose characters die are in danger of committing suicide.

* That DM's are vile temptresses that are out to corrupt their players to the forces of evil.

Given all those startling claims it's amazing that the crusade against RPG's has not been more successful! In fact, the last movie to crusade against D&D was Tom Hank's 1982 classic, "Mazes and Monsters."

We are going change all that. I'm already investing all of my lottery winnings in this project but it's just not enough to get it filmed and that's where you come in.

If the idea of seeing a movie where all the anti-RPG arguments above are made with every last drop of drama and conviction I can wring out them appeals to you, then I want you to invest today and make this movie a reality.

Please check out the video above to see what we are capable of and remember that you are only charged if we meet our funding goal. If the project does not receive it's complete funding you are charged ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!


He mentions a love of Stephen Colbert, so I'm guessing that's the style he's going to shoot for: acting very serious while making ridiculous claims, but doing so in a manner that shows how ridiculous they are.

My husband got into it. We were watching the Dwarven Forge and had hoped it would have reached 2mill. We cannot wait for the box to get here in the fall-ish.

This one definitely caught my interest. Its made by the makers of midgard (makers of kobold quarterly). I personally have only seen two issues of this magazine, but I thought they were interesting. This is for a massive collection of spells and development of 12 new "schools of magic". Its called the deep magic kickstarter.

Oh, and just having watched the video, at least a small portion of it will be from Ed.... a section on battle magic of Valkyries and Shield Maidens... so it will probably have something to do with enhancing armor while scantily clad :-) (or at least if they reach the stretch goal, but considering its only been open today and they've already blown past the first stretch goal.... don't think it will be a problem).

The Deep Magic kickstarter rose fast. Ed being a part of it was a sure thing a few stretch goals ago. Now we're a few hundred away from Ed writing another selection of spells, this time dealing with luck and gambling magic. Update #4 is a brief blurb by Ed on the intent or flavor of this soon-to-be-achieved luck/gambling section.

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/350683997/deep-magic-a-tome-of-new-spells-for-pathfinder-rpg/posts/507948?ref=activity

The other contributors are also experienced designers and writers, including:
Tim Connors with Dimension-Warping Magic
Jason Bulmahn (Paizo, Minotaur Press) with Labyrinth Magic
Stephen Radney-McFarland (Paizo) with Mythic spells, adding to the ones in Paizo’s upcoming Mythic Adventures
Amber E. Scott with Tomb Magic
Richard Pett with fool’s summoning

*Edit: And Ed's luck and gambling magic goal has been reached.

I decided to get in on that one. It's still got a lot of time left, but it's already blown past a number of stretch goals. Call me impressed.

Sasquatch Game Studio (founded by Rich Baker, David Noonan, and Stephen Schubert) has launched a kickstarter for their campaign setting Primeval Thule.

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/809579963/primeval-thule

The setting is inspired by the sword and sorcery adventures of the pulps. Supported systems include 13th Age, Pathfinder, and D&D 4E. The vibe seems like brutal and decadent sword-swinging action tinged by sinister sorcery in the lands of a bygone era.

Cover art will be provided by Todd Lockwood. Maps will be created by lead cartographer Christopher West. Contributors new and old will lend a hand depending on there this lands at closing, including potentially Ed Greenwood.

How in the eleven hells does Ed manage to be a part of every just about upcoming game project?

***

Dreamscarred Press is running a kickstarter for psionic miniatures, figures based on the artwork of their Ultimate Psionics book, which adapts, updates, and expands the 3.5E OGL psionics rules for the Pathfinder system.

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/197021008/psionic-miniatures

The figures are a mix of monsters and the psionic classes iconic characters (some being psionic races). They're up to 16 different minis, the four core psionic classes, 10 stretch goals and 2 backer sponsored sculpts (one character and one monster). They're currently reaching for the 17th mini, the Intellect Devourer with 4 days left.

***

Kobold Press's Deep Magic project has blown past dozens of stretch goals. It's now far more than just a collection of prior Kobold Press spells. This thing is so packed with spell lore, it's going to have to go extradimensional just to store it all.

Kidding aside, it has expanded enough to spawned another book, the Kobold Guide to Magic.

And it's still growing. The upcoming stretch goal includes a short story by Ed and ten cantrips by Wolfgang Baur. If reached, this would make the third Ed stretch goal of this project.

The stretch goal beyond that includes more art, including possible pieces by Todd Lockwood, Wayne Reynolds, William O'Connor, Craig Spearing, or Brom (schedules permitting).
