RPG Crowdfunding News – Numenera: Liminal Shores, Usagi Yojimbo, The Lost City of Gaxmoor, and more

From September 13th to 19th, there are at least 19 RPG and RPG-related (dice, podcasts, and the like) ending on Kickstarter. From those 19, I do a deeper view of 7 of them (and provide links to the rest).


Numenera: Liminal Shores by Monte Cook Games
  • END DATE: Fri, September 13 2019 9:00 PM EDT.
  • SYSTEM(S): Numenera
  • PROJECT TYPE: Sourcebooks
  • MOST POPULAR PLEDGE: $185 + S/H for 3 PDFs and hardcovers plus unlocked stretch goals
“Three thematically linked hardcover sourcebooks with all new material for the award-winning phenomenon of the Numenera tabletop RPG. Voices of the Datasphere opens up a whole new aspect of game play, where characters interface with and explore the reaches of the datasphere. This strange new metaspace is not just an ancient alien data network, but in fact multiple such networks—some damaged, incomplete, or aged or evolved past their original purpose—created by myriad civilizations and interacting in unexpected ways. The datasphere offers knowledge to be learned, treasures to be discovered, and wholly new challenges to be overcome. Liminal Shore offers a new land in the Ninth World, discovered only through clues found in the datasphere. What new people live there? What wonders do they command? Do they know more about the mysterious prior worlds than you do? Do they have cyphers and artifacts never before seen by anyone from the Steadfast or the Beyond? Liminal Shore will offer answers to all these questions, plus new creatures, new NPCs, and new adventures for your Numenera campaign. Be the first to explore a whole new land! Edge of the Sun offers a jaw-dropping, entirely new adventuring locale out in the infinite void, and thrilling, epic, adventures that potentially affect the entirety of the Ninth World itself. Although it can be a part of any Numenera campaign, if you were ever looking for an incredible finale, this would fit the bill!”

“The roleplaying game for Mantic's epic fantasy setting: Kings of War. In a world of heroes, forge your own legend. For the first time ever, you can now explore Pannithor through the medium of a roleplaying game tailor made for this epic fantasy setting. Red Scar are collaborating with Mantic Games and Winged Hussar Publishing to tie together lore that stretches across aeons, all with the purpose of creating a roleplaying game that lives, breathes, and enables your character to take control of their own legendary destiny. There is absolutely no need to pick up any of the other Kings of War systems. First and foremost, Kings of War the Roleplaying Game has been designed as an RPG ruleset that allows each group to tell their own epic stories. As each crossover component of the game also has a narrative counterpart, the system will run brilliantly on its own as a traditional pen-and-paper RPG.”

Eldritch Century - 5e RPG Dual System by Draco Studios
  • END DATE: Thu, September 19 2019 3:00 PM EDT.
  • SYSTEM(S): Dungeons & Dragons 5e and Draco System
  • PROJECT TYPE: Source book and 3D printed miniatures
  • MOST POPULAR PLEDGE: $20 for 2 STL bundles and 2 PDFs
“290-page RPG Corebook compatible with 5e plus 3D printable files. Get free PDF and STL instant rewards within 48 hours of pledging. Welcome to the Wounded Earth. The year is 1984, 66 years after the Miasma appeared in the Argonne forest, wiping one third of the American Expeditionary Force and driving the Great War to an abrupt cease-fire. The War to End All Wars brought the world to an entire new kind of conflict. The gaping wound of the Miasma splits land and people alike, and extreme ideologies set humanity against itself. Eldritch Century is fully compatible with the 5e ruleset including the stats, powers and abilities. In addition, the book details the Draco System. In this system, each character is created following a series of prompts based on the setting. We call this character creation concept the Exegesis System. This helps define where they are from, who they meet and establishes their Paths. The Paths are what gives each character their abilities, Powers and uses of their Effort Slots. A player may be able to take up to 3 Paths depending on their decisions during character creation. The Power System is freeform, and each Faction has their own style, which can be shaped on the run. As a result, a Sino Siberian that takes the Teslamancer path but had to endure a long bureaucratic process will be different from a Teslamancer that got into the Sino-Siberian Mandate party from childhood.”

I want to thank you for shining a light on Draco Studio's Eldrich Century. I have not found a product that has intrigued me this much since Invisible Suns and I would have never found out about it if it wasn't for you.
