There’s many interesting items to be found on Kickstarter, but these are the coolest ones this week.
Dog Might Games has another beautiful game accessory. The hero sleeves are small, well-built cases for you to store your favorite set of polyhedrals in. Need a new favorite set? They’re also selling all kinds of gorgeous new dice, including an amazing transparent rainbow striped set. Or you can get your reward with metal dice, if you like a more substantive sounding roll. The Bone Box stores five hero sleeves, but also can be used as a rolling tray. The acrylic screen can be used in the game as well, and there’s even a spot to store a dry erase marker. If you can’t afford the boxes, you should at least give yourself the chance to ogle all of the beautiful options.
“Our new Hero Sleeves and Bone Boxes offer all gamers a sturdy, sleek, and beautiful way to elevate your game. They are available in a number of exotic hardwoods and we will be releasing new woods and sculpts based on your feedback so visit our comments section and let your voice be heard.
All of our wooden boxes are made by our small group of passionate woodworkers in our shop in Ann Arbor, MI. and every piece that we make comes with our Lifetime Guarantee.
Our new Hero Sleeves are sleek and sturdy. Each side is cut from a solid piece of fine hardwood and lined with an aesthetically matched lining. The Hero Sleeve is held together with super strong neodymium magnets that keep it firmly closed for transport. Each one comes with one set of dice of your choice from the PEARL, SWIRL, or LAYERED styles.
The Bone Box is an all in one dice storage and rolling system. It features 5 individual Hero Sleeves, a rolling tray, dry erase marker storage, and a removable acrylic screen that you can write on. Each Bone Box is crafted in Black Walnut with Wenge banding and features a gorgeous sculpted lid.”
22nd HP Lovecraft Film Festival
This year the HP Lovecraft Film Festival is going to be New Orleans themed! The festival, as always is located in Portland. If you can’t make it, you can still take part in the fun and get some souvenirs, like Mardi Gras beads, doubloons, masks, and DVDs. There’s plenty of live sessions and more to check out, plus you get to hang out with with a ton of people who love the mythos as much as you do.
“Over the past few years, the H. P. Lovecraft Film Festival® has taken you on adventures to locales far and near, and now we’re bringing you a little of the New Orleans bayou with this year’s Mardi Gras theme! Join us for 3-days of Lovecraftian horror in film, fiction, art, and music in the heart of beautiful Portland, OR!
If you’re unable to attend the festival, you can still pledge for these fantastic rewards at the many “there in spirit levels.” At the end of the campaign, we’ll calculate your shipping to anywhere!”
RPG Worldbuilder may only be for Android, but it looks like a great resource for a GM. It allows to you to build your world in one place that is easy to track and develop in. You can build dungeons, create maps and charts, and even roll dice! If you have a world in your imagination and need a little help to bring it to life for your game, RPG Worldbuilder looks like it will be an amazing resource.
“RPG WorldBuilder is an Android app designed to be used as an accessory for tabletop role-playing games. RPG WorldBuilder makes role-playing adventure planning and bookkeeping a bit easier on GMs as it allows for easy map creation, dice rolling, custom charts, and seamlessly creating worlds. The goal for this app was to create a toolkit for GMs who want to plan adventures and create worlds wherever they go all on their mobile device.”
I really hope that the cool and strange graphics throughout the kickstarter page show up in the final product, because they’re amazing. Cultist Stimulator is a digital card game that lets you play, well a Cultist. As you seek for whatever forbidden thing it is your heart desires, you’ll run into obstacles and challenges you’ll need to overcome. I’m really interested in this being a narrative game, and can’t wait to see how the cards will play into it. There’s a beta version of the game linked to in the kickstarter, so if you want to try it out before pledging you can!
“Cultist Simulator is a narrative game that lets you play a seeker after unholy mysteries, in a 1920s-themed setting of hidden gods and secret histories. Perhaps you’re looking for knowledge, or power, or beauty, or revenge. Perhaps you just want the colours beneath the skin of the world. What you find may transform you forever. Every choice you make, from moment to moment, doesn’t just advance the narrative – it also shapes it.
Cultist Simulator is a narrative crafting digital card game, for release on PC, Mac and Linux. Choose an action, like Explore or Dream. Choose an object, like a Murmuring Amulet or a Captured Investigator or a Moment of Contentment. Combine it with other objects to find new secrets and build up your resources.
You’ll start with very little: your Passion, your Reason, some Funds, and a mysterious package from a benefactor. But you’ll learn to combine them to unlock snippets of story, and grow your powers. Craft the Rite of the Crucible Soul. Recruit Believers and promote them to Disciples to serve as burglars, researchers, cat’s-paws. Locate and pillage the Star-Shattered Fane or the Tomb of the Long. Penetrate the realm of the Hours, and win a place in their service.”
