What’s Cool on Kickstarter

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

Headspeace RPG
This looks like a really interesting sci-fi RPG that has a lot of the same themes as Shadowrun, especially with the powerful corporations. However, I’m really interested in the fact that your mind is bound together with that of the others in your cell. I haven’t seen a game that was focused so much on emotion, and they’re even core attributes for your character. This game is definitely worth looking into.

“Headspace is a cyberpunk game where the players are operatives fighting against evil corporations. You’ll need to make use not only of your own hyper-competence but also that of your teammates by way of shared mental and emotional consciousness: the Headspace. Using this technology, you can connect to your teammates’ minds and use their skills as though they were your own. There’s a catch though: Everyone’s got emotional baggage and digging too deeply can pull a teammates emotions into your own actions. The Headspace is the edge you need to stand against the corruption of the world, are you and your fellow operatives ready to take up the challenge and make the world a better place?

Headspace is a role playing game that explores human emotion, memory, and personal identity. The world of Headspace is a dark future where technology has begun to alter not just our bodies, but how we feel and even think. In this future, an advanced neural networking technology, Headspace, has been developed. The Headspace allows a group of wielders to connect their minds directly to each other. But, jacking into the Headspace comes with a cost; there is no going back. Once your minds are bound together, every thought, sensation, emotion, and even dreams are shared over any distance instantaneously.”


Strange Arcade Shirts
There are a lot of neat shirts in this collection, and this is a great chance to add something unique to your collection.

Three shirt designs including Cthulhu and a portrait of Lovecraft, Cthulhu, and tentacles emerging from an old diver's helmet.

DCC RPG 4th Printing
We’ve been wanting to try DCC on TRF for a while, especially intrigued by the character funnel and high mortality rate. And now you have a chance to get in on the next printing of this, dare I say it, classic.

“You’re no hero.

You’re an adventurer: a reaver, a cutpurse, a heathen-slayer, a tight-lipped warlock guarding long-dead secrets. You seek gold and glory, winning it with sword and spell, caked in the blood and filth of the weak, the dark, the demons, and the vanquished. There are treasures to be won deep underneath, and you shall have them.

Return to the glory days of fantasy with the Dungeon Crawl Classics Role Playing Game. Adventure as 1974 intended you to, with modern rules grounded in the origins of sword & sorcery. Fast play, cryptic secrets, and a mysterious past await you: turn the page…”


Bullseye d6
If you’re an archer, these dice, specially made for your damage rolls should be in your dice bag. They’re a a fun way to tie the specific weapon you love so much to how hard you’re murdering that centaur.

Concept arts shows targets with 1-6 arrows in each.

“These unique dice feature a design meant to capture the spirit of the rangestriker! While having a focus on archers and crossbowman, they can be used by anyone to reflect the measure of accuracy achieved in a roll!”


Aethera Campaign Setting
If Pathfinder is the one and only system for you, but you’ve been craving to take your Paladin to space (or even if you’re just interested in interesting new settings) you should really check out Aethera. This looks like a beautifully made, well thought out new setting for Pathfinder, that adds new classes and races, while allowing for the incorporation of what already exists.

“In the Aethera Campaign Setting, you’ll soar to asteroid outposts and ancient high-tech ruins on a ship powered by crystallized magic, journey to worlds populated by intelligent plant bio-engineers, musically prophetic technocrats, human-souled robotic war veterans, and alien shamans, all suddenly threatened by interstellar raiders. Aethera is a Pathfinder RPG compatible science -fantasy setting.

The Aethera Campaign Setting brings space opera to the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game. You’ll be able to experience the unique biomes of six totally new alien worlds, each with their own highly detailed histories, cultures, conflicts, and threats. Aethera is being designed with a distinct 1920s-1930s retro-futuristic art style, tempered by the presence of magic. Its diesel-punk meets magical technology, meets elements of traditional fantasy. You’ll have paladins, sorcerers, and wizards working as a team to explore asteroid dungeons where they’ll encounter lost technology from before the collapse of stellar civilization. Or maybe you’d like to explore the tense post-war political environment of the human mega-city arcologies on the barren world of Akasaat, where you’ll stalk the shadows of mile-high cities uncovering a vast conspiracy surrounding an ancient prophetic song broadcast by one of the Aethera system’s dying stars.”
