This is a tiny blog, although perhaps not so much as I’d been assuming. You’ve all probably heard of these D&D related kickstarter projects, so consider this a nagging reminder. There are probably others that are worth your attention that I haven’t mentioned, so please feel free to post those in the comments.
The Adventurer Conquerer King Player’s Companion kickstarter ends tonight at 10PM EST. I’ve skimmed the pdf that was released late last year and will be playing it for the first time tomorrow going through Dwimmermount with Tavis.
I made my first delve into Dwimmermount last night with Paul Hughes, who writes blog of holding and has a kickstarter for his Random Dungeon Generator as Map. This is one of those things I’m not entirely sure I need but backed solely on the fun I had last night at his gaming table (which was in the middle of a crowded art gallery).
Dwimmermount has its own kickstarter, of course, and I’ve signed on for that one. I hesitate to look at the extras and notes too much since I’ll be gaming in it a few more times I expect. What can I say? I’m a sucker for a good megadungeon (insert StoneHell nag here).
Lastly, is the indie-a-go-go campaign for The Monolith from Beyond Space and Time plus The God That Crawls. This one is not pacing well toward its goal, while the Kickstarter ones are. I don’t know if its the site or the way the perk levels are constructed, but I can’t imagine there being a lack of enthusiasm for LotFP material, especially adventure modules by Raggi Himself. Instead of positioning the campaign as the only way these will see the light of day, he presents the campaign as a way to help LotFP publish projects faster, so perhaps some portion of the OSR gang know he’ll publish this no matter what and are willing to wait. Now that he’s got McKinney’ stuff out the door, I am anxious to get him back to publishing his own work so I kicked in some sheckels.
