Pirates of a Shattered World-RPG by The Polyhedral Knights

  • END DATE: Fri, July 26 2019 9:14 AM EDT.
  • SYSTEM(S): An original system
  • PROJECT TYPE: Core rulebook
  • MOST POPULAR PLEDGE: $20 for both PDFs
Pirates of a Shattered World is a post-apocalyptic science-fantasy swashbuckling adventure. Taking place in the Fractured Sea---an archipelago filled with monsters and wreckage from the second apocalypse---it puts the PCs in the roles of explorers, swashbucklers, and science-mages and sets them against a backdrop of gunpowder, sorcery, altered beasts, and haunted ruins beneath the waves. Gameplay in Pirates is fast and pulpy. You build your characters using Archetypes like Sailor, Mystic, Science Mage, or Courtier (among others) and races like Iguana Hybrid, Hobgoblin, Mutant, and Elyrian, then dig into the crunch with a host of Attributes, Skills, Talents, Combat Techniques, and Spells to flesh them out how you want. Pirates also puts a vast, fully-fleshed out setting at your fingertips, including a bestiary packed with ne'er do wells, ancient hazards, and oceanic horrors, as an atlas with locations like Vek (the fractious nation of the Hobgoblins), the Brotherhood of the Sail (a windborne pirate nation ruled by voting council), and the Spider Kingdom (a toxic jungle full of people infested by a parasitic hive-mind). It draws inspiration from works such as Shannara Series by Terry Brooks, Hawkmoon by Michael Moorcock, and Pirates of Dark Water.” Torg Eternity – Aysle by Ulisses Spiele

Aysle continues the Possibility War started in Torg Eternity. Storm Knights rise to battle High Lord Uthorion and his army of darkness. A supplemental sourcebook for Aysle, an extended adventure book set within Aysle, and multiple extras and surprises help you continue and expand your table-top role-playing game experience in the evolving world of Torg Eternity. Aysle is a realm of magic, fantasy, and an eternal struggle between Darkness and Light! It's ruled by High Lord Uthorion —currently inhabiting the body of a Viking warlord—and his Dread Covenent of nightmares, necromancers, and nefarious lords. Uthorion attacked from above and below, with maelstrom bridges crashing down in the sea to bring his Viking raiders, and a massive ritual connecting the underground passages of Aysle to subways, cellars, and caves on Earth. Any break in the ground may now be a portal to treasure and danger.”

“Help bring to print a new edition of Chivalry & Sorcery, and enjoy the highs and lows of role-playing in a medieval world...Standing on the shoulders of giants, with refined mechanics and a deep, rich atmosphere, this brand-new edition is bigger and better than ever before, and for the first time ever is brought to you as a full colour hardback book! Please join us as we raise funds to complete the layout and fund the printing of this hefty tome, an estimated 500 pages of glorious colour - the Chivalry & Sorcery Roleplaying Game! Since its first edition back in 1977, Chivalry & Sorcery's guiding principle has always been that no one is an island. Every character you play will have been shaped by the society around them - even your landless adventurer or free-booting wanderer had a home and family once! Previous editions of Chivalry & Sorcery focused on Christianity as the core religion of the medieval setting. In this new edition, we're expanding the rules to incorporate Judaism and Islam as possible faiths for your characters. At the same time, the rules for priests and miracles are structured for you to tailor them to any religion, whether real-world or fictional, to best fit your campaign.”


The Blood Queen's Defiance by Limitless Adventures

  • END DATE: Thu, August 1 2019 12:59 AM EDT.
  • SYSTEM(S): Dungeons & Dragons 5e
  • PROJECT TYPE: Adventure module
  • MOST POPULAR PLEDGE: $20 for the PDF of the book
“A 5th Edition 3-adventure arc that requires no DM! Blood Queen's Defiance (BQD) is a 5th Edition adventure path for five characters of 1st-4th level. This three-adventure path requires no set dungeon master (DM). The three adventures included in this product can run independently or as a connected arc. The Raid on Oakvale - The party is visiting the sleepy village of Oakvale when it is attacked by the forces of the enigmatic Blood Queen. The Cursed Spire - The party discovers the abandoned tower of an archmage who hasn't been seen for weeks, though strange noises and lights have been reported by the locals. The Warrens of the Blood Queen - The party must journey deep underground to confront the mysterious Blood Queen and save the region from certain destruction. How does this DM-less adventure work? We've written a typical 5e adventure, but instead of publishing it in a book for one DM to read and run for their group, we've taken the encounters and placed them on cards. The group then divides those cards up among themselves and chooses the encounters that will make up the night's adventure. The players then take turns running their chosen encounters for the rest of the group, controlling their character as normal.”

L'gat's Tome of Amazing Creatures Volume 3 is the final volume in a monster compendium trilogy intended to be used with D&D 5E.

Because of my fondness (weakness) for superhero role playing games, I'm in on Aberrant. I have to admit, the Blood Queen's Defiance looks great as well.
