    I’ve really liked AAW Game’s series of Mini-Dungeons in PDF and now they’re raising funds to produce the Mini-Dungeon Tome, a 200+ page hardcover collection of over 100 of their short adventures, for 5th Edition and Pathfinder.


    Fever Swamp is an adventure compatible with Lamentations of the Flame Princess and most other OSR games. Fever Swamp will be a 30+page A5 (digest) book containing a series of geographically linked vignettes to explore. Flavours of nihilism, questions of inherent evil, and the abject failure of civilisation. And dampness, so damp.


    Horror of the Necrodarlings is a horror themed 3-part campaign for Dungeons & Dragons 5th Edition. The entire campaign is estimated to take 4 to 5 players about 8-10 months to complete. The campaign should take characters from 1st level all the way up to 9th.

    Secrets of Oyster Cove, by Douglas Sun, is the third in the Places by the Way series of short location modules for Dungeons & Dragons 5th Edition. The modules work well as short stand-alone adventures but have been developed to act as memorable interludes in your larger campaigns. Each book actually comes in two versions, a generic 5th edition one funded on Kickstarter as well as a Forgotten Realms branded one that is made available through the Dungeon Masters Guild.


    The Living is game set during a zombie apocalypse, where the zombies and living alike pose a threat to your PCs. Indeed, zombies are often the least of your worries in this new Kickstarter.


    Battlelords of the 23rd Century is a science fiction RPG designed by Lawrence R Sims and first published in 1990 by Optimus Design Systems. They published five editions of the game between 1990 and 1993 before SSDC Inc took over the game in 1999 and brought out a 6th edition of the rules in 2000. Now, in partnership with SSDC, new company 23rd Century Productions is using Kickstarter to fund a new and streamlined 7th edition.


    Triple Ace Games return to their Ubiquity powered All For One RPG for their latest Kickstarter campaign… and their twentieth campaign on Kickstarter! Satans’s Playground is set in an alternate history in which the supernatural is very real during the aftermath of the Thirty Years; War.

    Kickstarter have launched a Project Of Earth initiative to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Voyager probes. Shades of Vengeance have taken the idea of what might happen when a probe is picked up by an alien civilization. What’s their reaction and how do they respond. The bad news for us is it looks like they invade in Shades of Vengeance’s Era: Balam. The good news is that Shades of Vengeance are not only releasing Era: Balam in their signature Era d10 system but also for FATE and Savage Worlds.

    I first came across Sins a few years ago when store owner Jim Freeman, of Patriot Games in Sheffield, invited me up to have a look at a new RPG that was in development and meet the team behind it. The game sounded – and looked – gorgeous as they already had a professionally printed and bound copy of an early draft to show me. The game is a mix of genres and set in the post-apocalyptic ruins of 22nd Century Earth where entities known as Nemissaries have risen to fight an eldritch hivemind of the undying Brood.




    Feder & Schwert are currently running a Kickstarter for Der erste Spielleiter: Eine Comic-Biografie uber Gary Gygax or – given it’s English title – Rise of the Dungeon Master:Gary Gygax and the Creation of F&D. The graphic novel, written by David Kushner and illustrated by Koren Shadmi was released earlier this year and tells the story of Gary Gygax, co-creator of Dungeons & Dragons.


    The Draw of Glenfallow is a 5th edition adventure module by W.S. Quinton that’s currently running on Kickstarter. The adventure is the first part of a new series called the Tarot Adventrues, with each adventure themed after the cards in a Tarot deck. The Draw of Glenfallow sets the stage for the series by introducing a key character (Pieron) and is designed for characters levels 1 to 3.


    Andrew Valkauskas (Fate of the Norns: Ragnarok RPG) is back with Vanagard, a brand new collaborative storytelling card game that features some fantastic artwork. Utilising both roleplaying and board game techniques the players create their characters as they play and overcome challenges presented as the rounds storyteller weaves a scene based upon the story card they play. As characters overcome the challenges presented they can increase their levels and further expand their tales.


    In 2012 Iron Sky was released and became a cult hit movie. The sequel, Iron Sky: The Coming Race is being released on 14th February 2018 alongside the official Roleplaying Game which has just launched on Kickstarter! Headed up Dirk Vandereyken, and with a host of industry names such as Steven Long, Michael Surbrook and Darren Watts, writing it the game has an all star cast.


    The mighty Frog God is at it again with their new Kickstarter offering the fourth instalment in the Quests of Doom series. This time round not only are the modules offered for three different systems (Fifth Edition, Swords & Wizardry and Pathfinder) but theyare offering you a complete ‘pick and mix’ approach to what you’d like. There are sixteen (yes, 16!) adventures in total so across the three systems that makes up 48 to choose from in PDF or print. Every print adventure automatically comes with the PDF version free.

    Wolfgang Bauer and Kobold Press have just launched a Patreon to support a series of 5th Edition Warlock booklets for their Midgard Campaign Setting. Each Warlock booklet will e 16 to 20 pages long, with a black & white cover and interior artwork by artists such as Karl Walter and Gabriel Cassata.

    Mongoose Publishing return to Kickstarter to bring us a box set of Traveller goodness. The Great Rift & Deep Space Exploration Box Set will give us a load of information on the sectors of The Great Rift as well as “providing a comprehensive guide to deep space exploration and the mysteries that can be found far from the shipping lanes”.


    Mark Rein-Hagen’s Make-Believe Games launched their latest Kickstarter on 4th July. An appropriate date considering the game is Revolutionaries – The American War of Independence from the creative team of Nathan Tucker, Mark Kelly, C.A. Suleiman and Ryan Schoon.


    Fresh from securing a Savage Worlds license from Pinnacle Entertainment FeralGames have lost no time in launching their first Savage Worlds based Kickstarter with Ghost Ops. In Ghost Ops you are part of an Elite Special Forces Unit sent on missions to deal with Drug Cartels, Crime Lords, terrorist Cells and Warlords… from jungles to deserts, artic regions to urban sprawls. Fans of Tom Clancy and computer games such as Ghost Recon and Splinter Cell should enjoy this.


    Welcome to The Midderlands – an old school game setting and bestiary based on Swords & Wizardry Complete but for use with any other OSR systems or even games such as D&D or Pathfinder. The Midderlands is a green-hued, dark-fantasy, late-middle ages, early-renaissance view through grime-smeared spectacles. The setting itself is based on an area in the middle of England near where I live called The Midlands. Many of the locations are loosely based on reality, but others are pure fantasy from an addled mind.
