Greetings, all!

Thomas Orr, a church friend of mine, has a nearly-done Roguelike named Are You a Wizard.  A playable version for Windows, Mac, and Linux is downloadable via the Kickstarter page.  Extra funding goes toward upgrading the art and audio.

May you also find this game spiffy enough to financially back.

Thankee!

Tsukuyumi: Full Moon Down 1.1 update and now with minis!

For those who didn't see/back the original, it's an asymmetrical PvPvE board game, where each player picks a faction and works to control as much of the map as possible, as well as completing goals.  Each faction is very different from one another, and some are great counter-picks to others, though this does not guarantee victory.  The game is also diceless, it's all about the strength of your forces vs your opponent's, and which tactics you utilize.  There is also an addon for a cooperative mode, if that interests you.
What do I win?
An awesome-five for mentioning Penny Arcade's On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness.

I'm on the fence about this one but I'm going to post it because why not?

Cuttlefish Colors: A hobby paint line (Funding ends April 10th) - They're cheaper than Reaper paints, now have an update on what they look like, and are the same size as the reaper bottles with an agitator bead and everything.  On the other hand, these guys are bad at Kickstarter (though this is their first one and that doesn't necessarily mean that will translate at issues with the product or delivery).  I'll probably end up pledging, I have a lot of minis to paint and can always use more colors.

Lancer an RPG about mech pilots in space.

Lancer features a mix of military science fiction and mythic science fantasy. In the setting, conscript pilots mix ranks with flying aces, mercenary guns-for-hire brawl with secretive corpostate agents, and relativistic paladins cross thermal lances with causality-breaking entities.

Humblewood campaign setting looks pretty fun. I ordered the pdf to use with my kids, who I have no doubt will be interested.

Interesting.  That does remind me, Lancer is being made by the artist behind Kill Six Billion Demons.  Completely different, yet seriously badass, setting.

I thought this thread was a thing:

My Favorite TTRPG Valor is getting a Kickstarter for an adventure path: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/valorousgames/valor-best-in-class

They already reached funding for the adventure, and have a stretch goal for a program to build/generate characters/NPC at $4000

Can pick up the adventure and the base corebook in digital pdf format for $30, or physical copies for $55.
I have a copy of the corebook, which is a pretty decent quality hardback in full color. Definitely a fun system worth looking into.
Im really bad at what I do.
A+

Realms Beyond, a party-based turn-based RPG using the D&D 3.5 ruleset has a late backer program for its Kickstarter.

If they get enough money pre-launch, they'll even add Monks!  (Monks and Bards and Psions are planned to be included eventually.)

Sharing this here as it has to do with dice rolling and dungeons and dragons - here's a Kickstarter that involves turning gemstones into d20 and other polyhedral dice!  http://kck.st/2Ezrurg

People have been using gemtsone dice for a couple of decades, so if it is a problem it isn't anything new   :P
