Middara reprint kickstarter!  For anyone who missed the original, from around 5 years ago.  Also, the expansions for Acts 2 & 3 should be coming in it, too.

I have the game, from the first KS.  And it.  Is.  AWESOME.  Just finished a couple of encounters today with friends, and as I said to them, "You know, with Middara, the more I play its story, the more I want to keep playing it!"
What do I win?
An awesome-five for mentioning Penny Arcade's On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness.

The Sword Interval - Volume 2 (Funding ends July 18th) - A really good webcomic that's being printed as a graphic novel.  Go give them money, this guy is trying to do this for a living and it's really good.

Trial By Trolley (Funding ends August 7th) - This game looks like it has the chance to be the next Cards Against Humanity.  Just go look at it, I expect you'll either love it or hate it.

Two launched today.

Supreme Leader: Political Agendas & War Packs (Funding ends October 22nd) - This is a good party game that's fun, interesting, and pledging for their second kickstarter doesn't screw you out of anything that you might have missed in the first.  Plus there's a big fancy box!

Reaper Miniatures Bones 5: Escape from Pizza Dungeon (Funding ends November 2nd) - You know exactly what this is, and how many minis you can get that you don't need but will want anyway.

The lay-flat battle map hardcover arrived today. It's 1.5x the height of a normal D&D book, but it's high quality and the vinyl stickers are fantastic.

I'm worried about this one.  Everyone give it money, the game is great!

What's the point of putting things here if you don't throw money at the things I want you to?   :P


Orba - A musical instrument designed for your hands (Funding ends January 12th) - I've backed this one as well, I think it will satisfy the urge I've always had to own a theremin but at a significantly lower cost.

It's not another hundred dollar kickstarter game, I'll have to look at it closely!

Wrath of the Righteous video game and Knights of the Chalice 2 are set to launch Kickstarters next month, as is a remake of Geneforge (not based on a tabletop system, but a game well loved by cRPG fans). I wonder if any will delay.

D.E.I. - Divide Et Impera  Another board game, this one set in the frozen future of London.  Players vie for resources, sending their gangs of scrappers to gather everything they can, in the hopes of getting good rewards from the Purebreds (basically the rich folk).

It's a campaign relaunch, as they decided to do a cheaper meeple tier, in addition to the plastic figurines one.  They also re-jiggered some of the rules, if you looked at the original KS.

Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous (Funding ends March 11) - The people who did the Pathfinder Kingmaker video game are doing another Pathfinder adventure path video game kickstarter.  This one has already exceeded the amount of money that Kingmaker raised, the stretch goals are getting interesting.

THE COMPANY RPG (Funding ends February 17) - Not much left in this one but it is an interesting looking pen and paper RPG that you could use to run SCP games in.  D10 dice pool system so not too terribly complicated to learn (from what I can tell).

I can't be interested in WotR because the source material is so much worse than Kingmaker's in pretty much every regard. First book is literally from the writer of Siege of Dragonspear.

edit: Announced they're creating new to the game archetypes for some classes as part of the next stretch goal. These should be in the game's directory as a PDF (since it's a legal requirement). Will they count as official content the same way those two classes did? The only one they've mentioned sounds like it could just be a variant Stygian Slayer with video game friendly spells, but it could not be.
