The RPG Origins of Star Control
  • 8
Star Control: Famous Battles of the Ur-Quan Conflict, Volume IV or just simply Star Control was a science fiction video game developed by Toys for Bob and published by Accolade in 1990. Star Control was primarily a simple space exploration and combat game, but its sequel is widely viewed today as one of the greatest PC games ever made.

Worlds of Design: Monster Workshop Part II
  • 2
I've been talking about good ways to devise RPG monsters for tabletop games (See "Just Say No to Boss Monsters"). In the previous installment we covered the unknown, unusual characteristics, monsters that cooperate, and critters with combined characteristics. But there are many other ways to surprise your players with monsters, ranging from misdirection to item-stealers to relentless hordes.

This week I look at RPG crowdfunding projects that end between January 9th and 23rd (a larger period than normal as several quickstarters dropped that I had not covered elsewhere). It’s not a crowded field (I share eight projects in this article), but there are still a variety of options to choose from.
New Year, New Campaign

As 2019 wraps up, Christmas may bring you new RPGs which encourage you to consider starting a new campaign in 2020 Even if you have an ongoing campaign, you might want to think ahead if you need to save the funds for a future campaign you want to run.

Worlds of Design: Monster Workshop Part I
  • 0
Many people try to design really tough monsters for RPGs, but that’s often a consequence of the boss monster mentality, suitable for computers, not tabletop. I like to focus on surprising the players, and here’s how.

Pay What You Want (But Please Pay Something!)
  • 49
DriveThruRPG has the option to offer products for no set fee, but rather Pay What You Want (PWYW), in which customers pay whatever they think is appropriate for the product. The concept isn't new; PWYW has been around since performers have busked on street corners. But when it comes to role-playing games, certain PYWY strategies work better than others. Picture courtesy Ron Mader. When PWYW...
The Most Expensive Gifts on Our RPG Wishlists
  • 13
With the rise of D&D and tabletop role-playing games in popular culture, a broader more diverse audience, and gamers that grew up with the game now adult professionals with extra cash to spare, the market has adapted to match. Although it may seem hard to believe, Wizard of the Coasts' recently announced D&D Anniversary Sapphire Dice is not the most expensive on the list. In case you missed...
RPG Crowdfunding News - Kisarta, Mistborn Metal Dice, Retropunk, and More

This edition of RPG Crowdfunding News focuses on RPG crowdfunding projects that end between Friday, December 20th and the day after Christmas: The Christmas Batch. Why end your campaign during the time of the year when continents of the world are on holiday? I think the answer is either they’re expecting a CHRISTMAS MIRACLE (capital letters) or these creators have never heard of Christmas and...
Space is Not the Only Thing Trying to Kill You in the Alien RPG
  • 57
Making a living in space is not easy. Radiation, micro meteors, and no food, air, or water. A mistake can take your life. And mankind is not alone. There are hostile things lurking in the shadows of mankind’s colonies and ships waiting to kill or worse. Things alien.

All of the RPG crowdfunding projects shared here are available through either GameOnTabletop, IndieGoGo, or Kickstarter and end between December 6th and the 12th. Due to the holiday season, the number of entries declined from the low-20s over the past several weeks to 15 for this report.

Travis Legge (Onyx Path Publishing and Aegis Studios) reached out to me with a press release for Scarred Land’s Vigil Watch and Yugman’s Guide to Ghelspad. Around this time last year, Travis spoke to me about becoming an official freelancer with OPP. His position has blossomed since then, and when he reached out, it morphed into an interview about the Scarred Lands, Pugmire, and his other work.

Design Masterclass: 7th Sea
  • 14
Anyone who knows me will wonder why it took me so long to get round to what is probably my favorite game of all time. However, I'm sad to say that in this example I'm not going to talk about the numbers. First Edition 7th Sea had some rather basic rules problems (mainly the importance of traits). While Second Edition actually fixes many of those issues, that isn't as useful as you might think...
