What’s Cool on Kickstarter

There’s many interesting items to be found on Kickstarter, and here are the coolest ones this week.

Space Roller: Futuristic Dice
These are some pretty neat looking d6. They were designed to be futuristic, but I would love to use them in any game.

“As a Sci- Fi lover, I’ve always yearned for one day I can experience the world like Star Wars, Blade Runner, Matrix, Tron, Starcraft ever since I was a kid. After so many years, I become a designer and I start to get back into tabletop game from TV game and PC game. Dreadball fanatics is the one I like to play. It’s a really fun game, but I always feel some futuristic elements are missing, just like a watching a football game without beer. So I decide to design my own dice that can satisfied my desire and here comes the Space Roller.”

 

Treasure Chest
This is a lovely treasure box that I would love to keep my dice and tokens in. Stretch goals have added locks and other items to improve the box. You can use it hold cards and other treasures.

“The Chest comes with 3 compartments to store your fantasy coins & bars, or your dice and counters for any table top or role playing games.

Made from plywood. The printed patterns on the chest is made from synthetic leather that is glued on to the plywood surface.”

 

The Outer Presence
This is a short adventure, and I love collecting more of those to play!

“Ok, what’s The Outer Presence about? An expedition to New Guinea. I took a little inspiration from Cannibal Holocaust, Lost, and H.P. Lovecraft. I’ve playtested it twice and have a couple guys looking it over and hopefully playtesting it themselves over the next few weeks.”

 

The Pale Blue Die
“To me, it underscores our responsibility to deal more kindly with one another and to preserve and cherish the pale blue dot, the only home we’ve ever known.” – Carl Sagan

These dice are inspired by a quote by Carl Sagan, and they’re pretty interesting d6.

“The message and power of the original photograph are only equaled by Carl Sagan’s poignant and candid words in the passage from his book. They’ve always meant a great deal to me and with this die I wanted to pay tribute to the original photograph and those powerful words, the meaning they have for me and the importance of their overall message to our planet and us as a species.

I chose a D6 die for this project to pay tribute to the record setting distance this photograph was taken from, 6 Billion Kilometers. Each of the six sides of the die counts out the number of heavenly bodies shown (Sun, earth, moon and other planets) and shows their path through the solar system.

The #1 side depicts the original Voyager 1 photograph only showing the earth as a pale blue dot highlighted by rays of sunlight. ”

 

The Thin Blue Line
This a modern horror campaign set in Detroit. It looks like a very interesting setup, and I haven’t ever seen a game set in Detroit.

“Calamity brews in Detroit. Paranormal activity is on the rise. An angry spirit, a dangerous creature, or a pack of desperate cultists hides under every sewer cover and within every abandoned building. Corktown has a secret, though. Its crew of supposed washouts are either psychics or have encountered the paranormal. The officers of Corktown Precinct stand between the city and paranormal onslaught. These damaged, over-worked, and under-paid officers must keep paranormal activity in Detroit under wraps and out of sight. No mean feat in a city as old, large, and haunted as Detroit. Corktown officers face constant threats from mundane crime, paranormal forces, as well as their inner demons and growing madness.

Do they have what it takes? Can they stand against the growing threats, or will they be consumed, along with the city they guard? The Thin Blue Line is a modern horror setting for Savage Worlds tabletop role playing game.”
