RPG Crowdfunding News – TROIKA!, Convictor Drive, Gutterpunk, and more

This week, I look at RPG crowdfunding projects that end starting on November 28th to December 5th. Headed into the holiday season, there can be a reduction in the number of offerings; however, going into the first part of the holiday season there are many flourishing campaigns. With a number of offerings available, this is a sampler of what RPGs are currently crowdfunding.

TROIKA The Science-Fantasy Roleplaying Game.jpg

TROIKA! The Science-Fantasy Roleplaying Game from Melsonian Arts Council
  • END DATE: Thu, December 1 2022 3:00 PM EST.
  • SYSTEM(S): TROIKA!
  • PROJECT TYPE: Core rulebook
  • MOST POPULAR PLEDGE: £20 + S/H for the print versions of the core book and an additional booklet
  • WHY SPOTLIGHT THIS CAMPAIGN? TROIKA! has a new art and language revision of this RPG available via Kickstarter. This isn’t a new edition with new rules, it’s the same mechanics just edited and given new artwork, so it’s 100% backwards compatible. If you’re not familiar with TROIKA!, it’s a science fantasy RPG that sells itself on wonder and sprawling ideas over traversing the known. This core book gives you backgrounds (classes), enemies, spells, rules, and a starting adventure to bring your table into the world of TROIKA!

Convictor Drive: Armored by Grief - Japanese Anime TRPG from LionWing Publishing
  • END DATE: Thu, December 1 2022 9:00 PM EST.
  • SYSTEM(S): An original system
  • PROJECT TYPE: Core rulebook
  • MOST POPULAR PLEDGE: $40 + S/H for the PDF and print version of the core book plus additional PDF files
  • WHY SPOTLIGHT THIS CAMPAIGN? Pain powers this sci-fi anime RPG. In this homage to Kamen Rider, you’re in a prototype city with all of the world’s advances, but faced with a crime wave. You have a Convictor to pilot, to fight back, but you can only do so by recalling the pain of losing something dear to you. If you’re looking for heroes with heart and you’re a fan of Kamen Rider and tabletop, check out the campaign to get a free PDF sample of the RPG.


Improphet's Tome.jpg

Improphet's Tome from Joshua Birdsong
  • END DATE: Sun, December 4 2022 11:59 PM EST.
  • SYSTEM(S): Pathfinder 2e
  • PROJECT TYPE: Sourcebook
  • MOST POPULAR PLEDGE: $20 for the PDF of the book, the art pack, and the Foundry pack
  • WHY SPOTLIGHT THIS CAMPAIGN? Want Pathfinder 2e content? PF2e has a dedicated fanbase that is not as serviced as others. This book helps to fill the deficit with over 40 spells, 100 items, 200 feats, nearly 100 character options, and the warlock class. If you want to see more PF2e content, this project, along with some of Legendary Games’ recent campaigns, represent some of the best non-Paizo options available.


Heretic's Guide to Devotion & Divinity (5E).jpg

Heretic's Guide to Devotion & Divinity (5E) from Eventyr Games
  • END DATE: Fri, December 2 2022 2:00 PM EST.
  • SYSTEM(S): Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition
  • PROJECT TYPE: Sourcebook
  • MOST POPULAR PLEDGE: €25 for the PDF of the book and VTT assets
  • WHY SPOTLIGHT THIS CAMPAIGN? Need rules for the divine at your 5e game? Pantheons, ceremonies, cults, relics, NPCs, monsters, and something I dig, godly rewards. This book ranges from concepts for your character as a faithful follower to those where you’re seeking to become a peer of the gods. There’s a lot of clever word play with the campaign page such as this is the line that sticks with me: “Bless your game with [the Heretic's Guide to Devotion & Divinity (5E)].” If you’re looking to ramp up the religious aspects of your campaign, check out this Kickstarter page for a free 20-page preview.

Outcast Silver Raiders from Isaac VanDuyn, Kim Diaz Holm, and Lex Rocket
  • END DATE: Mon, December 5 2022 11:00 PM EST.
  • SYSTEM(S): OSR
  • PROJECT TYPE: Core rulebook
  • MOST POPULAR PLEDGE: $85 + $15 S/H in the US for the PDF and print versions of all three books and the map
  • WHY SPOTLIGHT THIS CAMPAIGN? Let’s juxtapose the last offering with Outcast Silver Raiders (OSR). This is an anti-religious/anti-theocracy OSR that embraces heretics and adventures that set the players against the establishment. Coming as three books, you’ll get the Player's Guide, the Referee's Compendium, and The Mythic North. For magic, this RPG offers something different, dæmonic rituals. These powers can be accessed by any class, they’re dangerous but that’s the thrill of RPGs. Considering its dark subject matter, this isn’t for every player, but for those that are interested, there’s a link to a preview on the campaign page.

Assault on Santa's Workshop (5E) from Matthew DeMino
  • END DATE: Fri, December 2 2022 6:00 PM EST.
  • SYSTEM(S): Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition
  • PROJECT TYPE: Adventure
  • MOST POPULAR PLEDGE: $10 for the PDF of the adventure
  • WHY SPOTLIGHT THIS CAMPAIGN? Designed for 5th level characters in 5e, this adventure puts you in the holiday spirit with drow, Christmas constructs, and an assault on the workshop that supplies Santa. The digital files will fulfill at the end of the campaign, in time for Christmas. If you’re looking for fantasy holiday violence, this adventure may be what you’re hoping for in your stocking.

  • SYSTEM(S): Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition
  • PROJECT TYPE: Sourcebook

With appropriate backgrounds and archetypes, over a dozen NPCs, and a fourth level adventure, you’ll receive a solid foundation to get into a guild dedicated to enrichment through misappropriation. This magazine recalls the heavyweights like Dragon and Dungeon with fantastic artwork and issue themes. Check it out if you need a magazine about thieves.

In this RPG you’ll make a difference and rebel with magic and music against a dystopian society. This corebook provides all of the rules you’ll need for character creation, music, dice pools, pre-gens, and an adventure to introduce you to the world.

Another Kickstarter in the final furlough is Titan Robotics for Palladium Rifts.



Some contention, in that Palladium have had an unsuccessful Kickstarter in the past. This is being run by Sean Roberson who also does work for Savage Rifts and the book Is pretty much complete. As a bonus, the Savage Worlds rules for the Palladium stuff is included as a PDF.
