Control: A Strategic Card Game (Funding ends February 19th) - An interesting looking quick play competitive card game about time travelers.

Fate More: From Bits to Books (Funding ends February 10th) - Evil Hat wants to print some of their Fate books that are currently only available in pdf.

Scarred Lands—FRPG setting in 5e OGL & Pathfinder editions (Funding ends February 2nd) - The title is pretty self-explanatory.  I've only glanced at Scarred Lands but the campaign looks pretty interesting.

Accursed: World of Morden (Funding ends January 26th) - Accursed is a setting for Savage Worlds that is pretty well reviewed, they want to print more books (and you can get pdfs of all the books as a pledge level).

Olympus Inc: An Urban Fantasy Setting Book For Savage Worlds (Funding ends February 18th) - The title is pretty self-explanatory.

Dragon: The Game (Funding ends February 14th) - An open-world action rpg where you are a dragon.  I've been following this game on Steam (it's in early access) and just found out about the kickstarter so I figured i would share it.

7th Sea: Second Edition (Funding ends March 13th) - 7th Sea is back in the hands of the original creator and so he's overhauling it since it's been over 15 years.  There's also a free quick start rules download.  Also, all pledges over $40 gives you all of the 1st edition books.

A couple more RPGs.

Weird War I - Savage Worlds (Funding ends March 3rd) - Savage Worlds already has Weird War II, Vietnam, and Rome.  Now Pinnacle wants to expand the Weird War series.  There's also a plot point campaign where you're the Germans (but this is WWI so not Nazis).

Robert E. Howard's Conan Roleplaying Game (Funding ends March 30th) - It's a 2d20 system (I've never played one of those) and a guy that I know is listed as a "renowned Conan expert" who's making sure the game stays true to its roots.  Also there are quickstart rules.  Definitely could be interesting.

Another pen and paper rpg

KULT: Divinity Lost (Funding ends March 31) - In 1991 an RPG was released called Kult (that I've never heard of, just fyi).  Now it's going to be re-released through Kickstarter.  It's a contemporary horror RPG.  Looks interesting.

Sandy Petersen's Cthulhu Mythos for Pathfinder (Funding ends April 6th) - The author of Call of Cthulhu wants to print a book converting the Cthulhu mythos to the Pathfinder ruleset.  He's even revising the official Pathfinder Cthulhu mythos monsters that have already been printed.

Also there's going to be a stretch goal for insanity rules.

Also there are miniatures!

Have you ever thought that you didn't feel complete unless you had dice with you at all times?  Or perhaps you want to introduce children to Lovecraft without giving them nightmares?  Well read on!

CUBi DICE : The Smallest Titanium Dice In The World (Funding ends March 16th) - These dice are 5mm per side and come with a keychain holder to carry them with.  Choose how many dice you want (keychain holds 6).

Littlest Lovecraft: The Horror Collection (Funding ends April 11th) - Contains children friend adaptations of "Pickman's Model", "The Haunter of the Dark", and "The Whisperer in Darkness".  Add-ons also include some pretty cool tumbler glasses, the other three Littlest Lovecraft books, and dice!  (I'm sensing a theme here...)


Edit: H.P. Lovecraft Cthulhu Mythos Petroglyphs: History in Stone (Funding ends March 17th) - I'll just quote the kickstarter tagline, "The Cthulhu Mythos on stone, with Elder Things, Shoggoths, & Deep Ones. Plus Miskatonic University T-shirts & Cthulhu Pendants."  It looks pretty damn awesome.

Dwarven Forge is making a new line of castles, walls, and towers.  It's looking pretty cool, if a bit pricey. 
I'm not arguing, I'm explaining why I'm right.

Speaking of Call of Cthulhu, my friend has been writing some investigations for the 7th edition rules to supplement the available content.

While free to access, he's hosting them on Patreon, so in this thread they go.  :tongue

I officially declare that Patreon counts as crowd-funding enough for this thread!

Prism Dice : Handmade from Bulletproof Glass (Funding ends April 15th) - Way too pricey for me but man wouldn't they be cool to show off?

GLOAID | Self Charging Wayfinding Systems (Funding ends March 30th) - A non-game related kickstarter, I just like the idea of high quality glow-in the dark materials.  I don't think that this one is going to meet its goal though.

Lexicons of Dueling Scottish Claymore (Funding ends April 22nd) - And interesting looking dueling card game.  This is the third kickstarter they've done, each one is a different deck/weapon.  It looks interesting but I've never pledged before so I'm not sure how well the game plays.

Trance Sphere: Oligodynamic Copper (Funding ends May 19th) - Reasonably priced large copper spheres (well, reasonably for the price of copper in general).

Rifts for Savage Worlds (Funding ends May 19th) - Pretty self-explanatory.  A Rifts conversion to the Savage Worlds system.

Dark Souls - The Board Game Funding ends May 16th) - Also self-explanatory.

The Dresden Files Cooperative Card Game (Funding ends May 19th) - I'm sure someone here would be interested in this.

Splyt Light (Funding ends May 14th) - A very cool build-your-own chandelier kind of project.  I like it a lot.

The Dark Eye RPG—English Edition (Funding ends June 2nd) - Another pen-and-paper RPG kickstarter.
