There’s many interesting items to be found on Kickstarter, but these are the coolest ones this week.
The One Shot podcast is launching a dramatic new twitch stream featuring Invisible Sun from Monte Cook Games. They have Darcy Ross on board to GM and have gotten access to some of the IS materials early in order to start this really awesome new project. In order to help the players have the time they need to immerse themselves into this world, they’re planning on paying everyone involved, which is what this kickstarter will help support. What’s cool is if you contribute you can help direct the direction of the story. You also get access to a bunch of campaign information from Darcy and from the ideas everyone helps contribute. I’m really excited to see this project come to life, and you should check it out.
“We’re taking full advantage of Invisible Sun’s player-driven system by inviting some of Chicago’s most talented performers to join us. Fans of our L5R, Mustang, and Dogs in the Vineyard episodes can look forward to being immersed in a rich surreal setting, replete with suspense, danger, and secrets.
We’re working with Monte Cook Games to bring you A Woman With Hollow Eyes. While this is not an official MCG production, we have the company’s permission and support to launch this unofficial series ahead of the release of Invisible Sun. And our GM is none other then Darcy Ross, the Community Relations Coordinator for Monte Cook Games.
In addition to an early look at many of the innovations in Invisible Sun, viewers of A Woman With Hollow Eyes will be our confidants and co-conspirators, learning secrets and receiving materials about this living setting created between the cast and backers. Higher-tier backers also have the ability to directly impact the story of the game with their ideas. These unofficial materials and secrets can be used alongside canon Invisible Sun lore, or may simply serve as inspiration for your own creations! Together we’ll create a truly beautiful, dramatic actual play that will change the way you play Invisible Sun before you even open The Black Cube.”
