This week, I look at projects ending between October 28th to November 7th. I lead with a campaign that ties into Free RPG Day, a 5e accessory, a pair of projects built around haunted places, and more. As always, this is just a sampling of the RPGs that are campaigning right now and I encourage you to look for more of the great games being crowdfunded.
This week’s list of RPG crowdfunding projects runs from October 28th to November 5th. Included on the list is EN Publishing’s largest project to-date, an RPG I was able to play at Origins Game Fair, and a lot of original projects by great creators. This isn’t an exhaustive list, but it does highlight some of the great games waiting to be discovered.
This week, I look at RPG crowdfunding projects running from October 5th to the 23rd. This is an amazing time for RPG crowdfunding.

In this article, I share RPG Kickstarters that end by July 16th. This week, I focus on projects that speak to me from Khepera Publishing, MVmedia Philip Reed Games, and more. Unfortunately, that means hits like The Black Hack Second Edition - Classic Monsters from Gold Piece Publications and 5th Edition Monsters & Treasure of Aihrde from Troll Lord Games were linked instead of given short...
This week I look at RPG crowdfunding projects that end by April 30th. As I’ve been doing, I review campaigns as well as Kicktraq’s charts of how they’re performing. These projects began after March 11th (when American sporting events suspended their games signaling the scope of the pandemic), and present an informative view of launching new games amid this global crisis. With many...
In this article, I review RPG crowdfunding campaigns that end between November 8th and November 14th. This list includes at least 17 projects; there are more, but during that 7-day stretch, I selected these to reflect on.
At least 13 crowdfunding projects end between October 18th to the 24th.

Every April I shed my freelancer disguise for the clothes of a Track Director at what is one of Atlanta’s best conventions, JordanCon. To be honest it's the same black tee shirt and jeans, I just put them in a suitcase and pop on down to the Crowne Plaza® Atlanta Perimeter at Ravinia. Along with the tools to bring the beauty of Science Fiction to what is primarily a Fantasy-focused membership...

Fate Core System

Fate Core System: Characters live at the core of Fate! Fate Core is the latest edition of Evil Hat Productions’ popular Fate roleplaying game system. Fate started as a “house rules” project for the Fudge system during a car ride Rob Donoghue and Fred Hicks had back in 2001. After seeing some success with it in their home games, they created a free, downloadable version for anyone who cared to grab it. They figured a few dozen people would have a look. Instead, hundreds did, and it fast became one of the most popular variants of Fudge out there, spawning its own thousands-strong discussion list and eventually helping to launch Evil Hat as a commercial game company.
