I thought we had one of these, but all I see is the video game KS thread in IGtMaC.

And this Calendar with puppy versions of D&D monsters clearly isn't a video game, but is the sort of thing a bunch of D&D nerds might want to back.

It seems you are correct. I could have sworn we had a non-video game one.

On a specific note about that one- oh my god, baby chimera are unreasonably adorable.

Also baby gryphons, but that's mostly because I learned to today that, generally speaking, ground birds are the ones with cute babies, while birds that fly a lot actually have the ugly nestlings.


edit: *sigh* I am justifying my pledge by saying I'm doing it instead of a current gen system this season. And because it'll be awesome.

I don't know how many people will care, given that this is a geographic project, but if anyone makes trips to Sacramento, or is just interested in helping some gamer entrepreneurs out, I found Save Point Tavern and sent a bit of money their way (and will be sending a resume too, if it funds).

I also found Zen Dice, some pretty cool zen themed d6s that make me wish monks were fucking viable:


And Wizard's Gambit, an arcane themed rpg dice set:

I clicked on this link earlier and was filled with the same self loathing that I have when I click on other stupid manipulative links. My subconscious is like "Erik would like this- hey hand: click that shit before his brain catches up and let's surprise him!"

"oh, a new game thread about some obscure game I don't know! *click* shit. A silva thread. Why didn't I see that?"

It's a cute idea that might be interesting for a one shot game. Not something I'd pay for though.

I just find it hard to believe someone pledged 2500 dollars for that.

Trademarks aside I would have called it Grindhouse. It has more to do with the blaxploitation, chop socky, and skin flicks (SS Battle Nuns in Prison! Part 3!) than anything really to do with the 70's.

Then I would have added in abilities like Bad Editing, reused footage, and the infamous <MISSING SCENE>

BAD GUY: You're stuck in a pit slowly filling with burning gasoline! If the fire doesn't kill you the lack of air will! I'm going to enjoy this!

<MISSING SCENE>

GOOD GUY: I would have never thought to use Pubic Hair to get out of that kind of situation. Wow!

Why is the dead tree version $50? I'm more inclined not to back it and just print an online PDF.

I had posted a couple of "products on spec" threads, because the initialism amused me.

A cynical grab for that Cards Against Humanity money doesn't exactly instill a lot of faith in their ability to create compelling universes to roleplay in.

That KS campaign misspells Jeff Goldblum's name, uses an un-ironic greengrocers' apostrophe and splits a link for no reason -- within the first four sentences of its pitch.

Shouldn't this thread be in the Kickstarter shill thread?

No, actually it shouldn't have been moved. The prior two posts were derisively mocking an already closed KS campaign - which is pretty much the opposite of shilling.

I don't know... quantum bears would make a Cannonball Run game very entertaining.

That could be hilarious.
That said, this could only be something that you play as one-shots on silly beer-n-pretzel nights

Fixed that for you. Clearly, Spirit of '77 needs to support bear man as an archetype.

I was thinking about making a quantum primates joke, but I'm much more amused by the idea of Spirit of '77 having Quantum Huggy Bears.

So, the Wizard's Gambit kickstarter has about four days left, and the creator dropped a pretty cool stretch goal. If the project hits $75k (it's at $48k now), everyone gets a free dice set.
