  • SYSTEM(S): Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition
  • PROJECT TYPE: Sourcebook
  • MOST POPULAR PLEDGE: £25 for the PDF of both books
  • WHY SPOTLIGHT THIS CAMPAIGN? This is why we game. In Silverplate, you’re a food, a living, breathing, burgering, donuting, animated food, and you have things to do before you’re eaten. The visuals say it all, you play as an anthropomorphic meal going on adventures in a 5e food world. The setting book, Tasty Lands of Silverplate, is 250+ pages of meat monsters, snack NPCs, delicious archetypes, menus of lore, and candied lands. The ten level campaign/adventure, Blight of the Green Witch and Other Adventures, is 220 pages that’s all an adventuring appetizer to get you into a world of consumables. If you’re hungry for this type of adventuring, check out the campaign page for a link to the free demo to get a taste for this.

  • WHY SPOTLIGHT THIS CAMPAIGN? From Steve Jackson and Liz Danforth, this project offers two battle maps of a rose garden for use with any fantasy RPG. The dual maps include 50 counters with one side showing a grave, seat, urn, or other obstacle, and the other side showing the same but damaged or destroyed. There’s also a four-page booklet of rules, lore, and an adventure seed. If you enjoy battle maps, this one looks impressive and sizeable when both are connected together. As an added bonus, if you’re new to The Fantasy Trip, check out the Bundle of Holding to get PDFs of the books for a limited time.

This project takes an existing adventure for 5e and goes full weird fantasy with DCC and MCC mechanics. An Occurrence was originally kickstarted for 5e, but this version adds 40 new pages to the 5e version and converts it to DCC and MCC rules to give it more of an Appendix N feel. If you need more weird fantasy at your gaming table, this project is for you.


The Wolf King's Son.jpg

The Wolf King's Son from Lumpley Games
  • END DATE: Fri, January 6 2023 11:59 PM EST.
  • SYSTEM(S): Powered by the Apocalypse
  • PROJECT TYPE: Core rulebook
  • MOST POPULAR PLEDGE: $35 + $10 S/H for shipping in the US for the PDF and print versions of this RPG
  • WHY SPOTLIGHT THIS CAMPAIGN? You’re the Wolf King’s Son, but you’ve run from home, and now your life begins. This 100ish page RPG lets you try a variety of stories, some about your life as it’s lived now, some about those around you, some about the wider world. The campaign page makes me think there’s an element of Neil Gaiman’s The Sandman and ensemble tales of that nature within the storytelling of this RPG. Add to that, the game runs on the Powered by the Apocalypse concept and comes from the creators of the system. If a coming-of-age fantasy RPG from the creators behind PbtA speaks to you, check out the campaign page.

  • WHY SPOTLIGHT THIS CAMPAIGN? This is a short side adventure, roughly one hour to one session of a campaign in length.

Estimated to be 6 to 8 pages, Darklight Interactive (David Flor) is using this campaign to try out crowdfunding on GameFound. I support trying out the different platforms to learn their ins and outs.

The campaign page implies that there will be rules to adjust the levels of the adventures so your characters aren’t over matched. If a 5e project where you can add in some monster hunts appeals to you, especially one with new content being added monthly, this campaign may be worth checking out.

Savage!
Another Crowd Funding project finishing in that window is a double-‘Game Changer’ From Pinnacle:

Rifts_FullSpread_v5.png


Terror on The Dark Frontier & Land of a Thousand Islands [link]

This is a double-campaign for Savage RIFTS. Terror on the Dark Frontier is an adventure boxset, while Land of a Thousand Islands is a RIFTS ‘world book’ covering South America. Lots of material for GMs and players alike.

The campaign runs until approx the 6th of Jan. It uses Pinnacle’s own crowd funding platform which charges you when you back, but has the benefit of allowing you to add anything from the PEGINC web store on to your pledge and benefit from cheap postage.
