What’s Cool on Kickstarter

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

Seven Worlds

I’m really interested in this new Savage Worlds setting. It’s a near future sci-fi setting that really focused on staying true to science, including realistic space combat rules and receiving the Atomic Rockets Seal of Approval. While the game does allow you to use FTL or play a psychic, they worked hard to include real science in the setting, which I really love. They have some short rules available if you’re interesting in giving it a try before you pledge on the Kickstarter page, and I’m looking forward to trying it out!

“Welcome to Seven Worlds, a new Epic Science-Fiction Setting and Campaign for the Savage Worlds role-playing game, from Intellistories, official Savage Worlds Licensee! Seven Worlds is a unique, epic hard(ish) Science-Fiction role-playing campaign and setting. In the year 2217 humanity’s greatest achievement is the colonization of the nearby star systems now known as the Seven Worlds, where humanity lives, thrives, and prepares for the next great wave of space exploration. But when the unexpected threatens humanity, only an unlikely band of heroes can unravel a deadly conspiracy and try to avert the Fall!”

What’s Cool on Kickstarter

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

7th Sea: Khitai
7th Sea is such a great game for playing heroes, and it really allows you to focus on intrigue or combat as you prefer. 7th Sea: Khitai doesn’t require you to own 7th Sea to play, it can be an entirely separate game, or you can integrate the two settings. Khitai takes an Eastern influence in it’s setting and lore, and is more supernatural based then 7th Sea is. The stretch goals are for fully fleshed out books for the kindgoms of Khitai, so you can take a really deep dive into the different parts of the world as you want.

“The Big Question in 7th Sea is “What does it mean to be a hero?” I wasn’t content with just the European answer. I wanted to include Heroes from all over the world to come play in our sandbox. 7th Sea: Khitai is a chance to allow the Eastern Hero into the world and bring more voices into the discussion. In the East, the Hero’s role is different than in Théah. The Call to Adventure is very real, a spiritual urge to travel toward one’s destiny. It is not metaphor, but an inevitable pull all Heroes feel, a pull toward a duty that is greater than a Hero’s own desires. The Song of the World brings these Heroes together to fulfill important roles.

In Théah, the Hero walks her own path. In Khitai, the Hero serves the World. In Théah, honor is personal. In Khitai, it is supernatural.

7th Sea: Khitai is a standalone game; you don’t need any other books to play it. Khitai uses the same ENnie Award winning system from 7th Sea: Théah, but with new twists to make the game fit the concepts of the East.”
