Powernap: Volume 2 (Funding ends October 14th) - This one is on Idiegogo for those who don't use kickstarter.  It's for a webcomic that I like enough that I'd be willing to pay for a physical copy of it (check it out if nothing else).  You're paying for the new book (and also volume 1 if you want it).  Also free international shipping!

FIRE & BONE 3: Tiny, Digitally Captured, Metal Animal Skulls (Funding ends October 14th) - Have you ever been interested in owning a small metal replica of an animal skull (or in the case of this particular kickstarter a HUMAN SKULL)?  If so, check this out.  The company and their products are pretty good, I have a pair of wolf skull cufflinks from one of their previous kickstarters.

I'm sure that anybody who reads this thread is probably already aware of the situation since the two threads are literally right next to each other right now, but a fellow board member needs our help.

Lycanthromancer is in trouble.  If anyone can help him, please do.  He's trying to get his life back together and I know that a lot of us understand just how hard that can be.

Thanks for posting this for me, man. You're awesome.

While I'm here, I wanted to draw some attention to an idea Solo had that could help me help myself. I outlined it in this thread. I know I have a bit of renown around here and elsewhere in the gaming community, and I'd like a chance to try for something big.

Anybody who wants to discuss it with Solo and me is more than welcome.

Spellbook Gaming Boxes (Funding ends November 6) - Are you tired of boring fake looking book boxes (boxes shaped to look like books, not boxes for your books)?  If so, check this out.  There are a lot of customization opens and it will come with a foam insert in case you want to use it to store your Magic cards or miniatures or whatever else.

I've got a handful this time.

Monkey House Games Legal Battle - This one's on Indiegogo.  Basically, Jeff Dee (if you know who that is) and company made a game (Villains and Vigilantes) in 1979.  Then the publishing company ceased to exist so the creators decided to release a new edition since publishing rights reverted to them.  Now the former president of the company that no longer exists is suing for trademark infringement.  I hate bullshit like this.

Friday the 13th: The Game (Funding ends November 13th) - I'm on the fence about this one.  On the one hand, the game looks and sounds pretty awesome.  On the other hand, I never play asymmetric mutiplayer games (1 big guy vs mutlple normal people like Depth or Evolve).

(The Awesome & Mighty) Machu Picchu Dice (Funding ends November 26) - I'll admit, I have a thing for dice.  Especially cool or unique dice.  I've backed a couple of dice kickstarters already and they've been hit-or-miss for me.  However, these dice look amazing!  If you're looking for awesome stone d6's with silver and stone/shell inlay then check these out.

Kill Doctor Lucky (Funding ends November 13th) - Please note: This isn't the Paizo version of the game.  Publishing rights have reverted back to Cheapass Games (a pretty damn awesome company that I'm surprised that I haven't mentioned before.  (Check them out.)  If you haven't played it before, think of it as the precursor to Clue.  You and the other players run around a mansion trying to Kill Doctor Lucky without being caught by the other player's.  It's a lot of fun!

Megalixir (Funding ends November 7th) - Have you ever wanted video game inspired display pieces?  Are you tired of art prints and looking for something a little different such as a deku nut or a fairy in a bottle or one of 10 other physical rewards (there are 12 total, plus a digital one, plus some combo tiers)?  Check this out, it's both pretty and cool.

I've never played it and have never looked at the system but I thought it was appropriate for the board so there it is.   :p
