Fellowship looks like a fun game

Check out the Kickstarter campaign for Fellowship. It’s by the good folks who brought you Inverse World.

Fellowship is a Lord of the Rings kind of structure that isn’t tied to a Lord of the Rings kind of world. Also the GM kind of gets to play a character too, but there’s rules to how that works so it’s actually fun for the GM to play, and entertaining for the PCs to interact, and useful to the game as a whole rather than the usual, y’know, GMPC who gets all the best trench coats and katanas.

Fellowship is already fully funded, so at this point you’re getting a complete game guaranteed. The higher we can push their funding, the more goodies we can get. It’s win-win.

Got another one for ya!

Got another neato Kickstarter for you guys and gals to check out. Not a nerdy tabletop thing. No, this time, it’s a nerdy computer game!

XO by Jumpdrive Studios.

Sort of a space fleet RTS thing, which is a genre I love, but then every game turns into a complete disaster. I can never tell if I just suck at them or if these games’ systems tend to get in the way of actually playing them. XO looks to get around that by streamlining its systems rather than simplifying its gameplay.

Big Bad Con 2015

Hey. Nerds.

Do you like conventions? Do you like gaming? Because there’s this tabletop gaming convention called Big Bad Con that’s pretty cool. And it has the added benefit of contributing to charities.

I’ve not been, because it’s on the opposite side of the country and I don’t truck with heathen timezones. But I know a lot of folks who have been, and they had a great time. It’s a smaller event, but I find y’kinda want that in a gaming show. Gives you a chance to check out stuff more in-depth and to really get your hands dirty tinkering and feedbacking on up and coming games.

They’re running a Kickstarter to make this year’s show the best one yet. They surpassed their goal pretty quickly, so now it’s just a matter of adding as many bells and whistles as possible. Check it out. Even if you aren’t in the area or don’t plan to attend, there’s nothing wrong with supporting independent gaming and charity at the same time.

The homestretch!

We’re nearly done with the Atomic Robo hardcover reprint Kickstarter campaign.

Here’s the current list of stretch goals…

What an assortment of neat things WOW.

The campaign ends this Friday, June 5th, at 5pm Eastern. So, get to it!

Little update


Matt Speroni’s The Dreadful is on hiatus. Our cobbled together version of ComicPress only sorta ever worked, and now that we swapped servers it’s gone into full on Not Gonna Work mode. It’s just as well since Matt broke his damn drawing arm in three places, like, the day before we found out ComicPress was being goofy.

I can’t tell if that’s a lucky coincidence or not. On the one hand, no one’s to blame for the hiatus since it’d be happening either way. On the other hand, ouch. Get well soon, Matt.

In sunnier news, the Atomic Robo Hardcovers Kickstarter Campaign s going well. Scott shared some of the process behind the redesign for a couple covers here and here. The next stretch goal will bump the pagecount of THE SECRET FILES OF DR. DINOSAUR in every volume from four to six for fifty-four pages total.

There’s a stack of more stretch goals planned, and oh my goodness, we’re getting into some amazing territory soon.
