RPG Crowdfunding News – Tenebria, Adrenaline, Eryphir, and more

Between September 20th to 26th, ten RPG, and RPG-related, Kickstarters end. Compared to recent weeks, that’s a notable decrease. However, this is not the start of a trend. Instead, it’s the result of Gen Con week and its impact on RPG Kickstarter launches (when many of the crowdfundings that would have ended this week likely would have begun).

  • MOST POPULAR PLEDGE: $10 for the PDF of the game
  • NOTE: At d20 Radio, I did an review/interview with Wet Ink Games about their RPG, Never Going Home, in which they discuss Tenebria: Remnant of Rome (here)
“A survival and resource management RPG after the fall of Rome. Rome, the famous Eternal City, has fallen and the last imperator exiled in obscurity. There are no more supply trains to support the legions. There is no more trade with the coasts. As far as you know, you are the last Romans, stranded a thousand stadia from anywhere. All you have left is your training, your eagle standard and your will to preserve civilization as you know it. Here in Tenebria, at the base of a crumbling aqueduct, you will make your final stand. Created by writer and artist Steven Wu, the newest from Wet Ink Games is ready to challenge you with a desperate fight for survival at the edge of a fallen empire. Create a survivor at the end of an age, choose what you can contribute to rebuilding, meet your fellow refugees in Tenebria, and take up the fight against the many others who want what you have preserved. Perhaps this is the beginning of a new age...”

  • SYSTEM(S): Forged in the Dark
  • PROJECT TYPE: Core rulebook
  • MOST POPULAR PLEDGE: $20 for the PDFs and PODs for both books and decks
“A tabletop RPG of near future action and intrigue. Think Ocean's 11, Mission Impossible, or Fast and Furious... With cyberware! Adrenaline is a Forged in the Dark game about a group of thrill-seeking characters in a close-knit crew who swindle, steal, and shoot their way to infamy and fortune - or die trying. The game takes place in a fictional setting that looks just like our modern world. Adrenaline can be played in a modern-day setting, or use the cyber, bio and pharmaceutical augmentations to take your action into the near future or cyberpunk. The crew is at the heart of Adrenaline game play. The player selects from one of three crews to determine the style of pay that they are interested in. They then create their characters from one of eight playbooks.”

Call of Cthulhu Sverige.png

Call of Cthulhu Sverige by Eloso Förlag
  • END DATE: Wed, September 25 2019 6:15 AM EDT.
  • NOTE: This Kickstarter is for a Swedish-language edition of Call of Cthulhu
“This is a Kickstarter for the officially licensed Chaosium RPG Call of Cthulhu, with an international collector's pledge available. It's all in Swedish, since our license only covers that language, but we do hope you will enjoy the collectible value. We have prepared two levels for you that are available internationally. One is the Core package with the Swedish Investigator's and Swedish Keeper's Handbook. The other one is the Collector's edition that also includes mini-campaign, the scenario and the two mini-scenario collection. You can read more below about them, but they are written by some pretty talented people. All international backers will also get the reproduction of the 1926 map of Stockholm. Please note: there is no English content, but Swedish is a beautiful (and frightening) language.”

“Join WizCo Games as we team up with World Anvil on this incredible journey to create episodic RPG adventures for 5th Edition D&D! Welcome to the WizCo Games Kickstarter for the creation of our first Adventure Series, “Corruption in Daelus,” supported online by the Blackwood Society Organized Play and WorldAnvil for Dungeons & Dragons 5th Edition! Power up your aether-jets and jump into the action-packed, neo-arcane high adventure of our Eryphir campaign setting with these four thrilling adventures! When word reaches the adventurers of a murder in a small, remote hamlet, they are tasked with uncovering the truth behind the unusual event. Their investigation leads them down a desperate road of horror and sorrow as they chase the culprit across the colonies, attempting to bring them to justice. Not everything is as it seems (naturally) and before the adventurers can bring the murderer to justice, they will have to struggle through a quagmire of lies and conspiracies; battle through treacherous traps and cutthroat creations. This Adventure Series consists of four, 4-part episodes. Each episode can be played in a single, four-hour session OR incorporated into your campaign as your characters gain experience and levels.”
Oasis of the Elementals.png

Oasis of the Elementals (for D&D 5E and Pathfinder 2E) by Douglas Sun
  • END DATE: Wed, September 25 2019 1:25 PM EDT.
  • SYSTEM(S): Dungeons & Dragons 5e and Pathfinder 2e
  • PROJECT TYPE: Adventure
  • MOST POPULAR PLEDGE: $6 for the PDF of the adventure
“It's the Arabian Nights meets A Fistful of Dollars in this location module for Dungeons & Dragons and Pathfinder. Oasis of the Elementals, our eighth Places by the Way location module for D&D 5E, and Path to the Mizar Oasis, our eighth Found by the Way module for Pathfinder (and the first for Pathfinder 2E, although 1E compatibility notes are included). This campaign offers you your only chance to get copies of the Limited (Kickstarter Only) Edition of both modules. The oasis at Mizar is a popular way station in the bleak, endless desert. It's just a village, but the water from one of its springs, the Spring of Wonder, is said to have remarkable properties: It cures the sick and lame, it dispels curses and magical effects, it restores lost hair, it increases stamina and promotes intimacy. And that's not the half of it. Many folks come to Mizar believing that the water is literally magical. These awestruck tourists don't know and may not notice that Mizar is in trouble. For generations, the Phares family owned the land containing the Spring of Wonders and they managed this tourist attraction wisely and well. The entire village benefitted. But the last of the family died without an heir, leaving their followers — the guards and other staff who took care of the spring — to split into rival camps and contest who should inherit this landmark of incredible value. Driven by greed and cruelty, they're using Mizar as their battleground and the once-happy residents as pawns.”
