Dragon Kings

Fans of Dark Sun rejoice! Timothy Brown, the co-creator of Dark Sun is running a KickStarter that he refers to as “my spiritual successor to Dark Sun.”  Dragon Kings is an ambitious and interesting undertaking that merges music, art, fiction and fantasy role-playing.  For those of you familiar with Dark Sun the world of Dragon Kings, Khitus, will seem very familiar.  Like Athas it is a world in decline, the best and most glorious days of the planet apparently behind it, and only the intervention of whip-smart heroes with nerves of steel can keep it from continuing to fall to waste.

If you go to the KickStarter page and look around you’ll quickly get an idea of how integrated the music and art are into the project.  We RPG lovers are very familiar at this point with the idea of art and fiction

gazetteer

helping to shape the worlds in which we play but the addition of music as a core component of that experience has never been fully realized.  Mr. Brown is actually creating an album which tells the story of a hero within the world of Khitus, complete with gazetteer book that has the lyrics to each song, art depicting that part of the story, and interesting lore that helps flesh out the world around.

The initial ask for this KickStarter is $29,000, which has almost been met as of now, and probably will be within the next day at the current rate.  That leaves well over three weeks of time to meet stretch goals which will add goodies such as more songs, rules supplements for additional game systems, adventures and short stories.

The initial game systems supported are Savage Worlds and Pathfinder which should satisfy most gamers.  13th Age is the first additional system to unlock via Stretch Goals with Fate Core coming along behind.

For myself the combination of a Dark Sun like campaign world, which was the first D&D Box Set I ever bought back in 2nd edition, and the Savage Worlds rules make this an extremely tempting offering.  Check it out and let us know what you think, and if you like what you see go ahead and back it as well!

Fate Dice KickStarter

After the success of the Fate Core KickStarter it was only a matter of time before the Evil Hat guys came out with their own line of dice to allow the over ten thousand backers to play the upcoming game in style.  Well now we can stop waiting as the Fate Dice KickStarter has arrived and these dice look nice!  The first package of dice starts at $20 for US backers and gets you a pack containing three sets of fudge dice.  After that you can get additional regular centurionFateDicepackages of dice for $15 each for normal sets or $18 each for the yet-to-be-announced special sets.  So far the announced packages include the official Fate Core set using colors from the book, the Centurion set and the Atomic Robo set.  The next set doesn’t get revealed until funding reaches $30,000 which shouldn’t take long since funding reached $26,000 within the first few days.  I absolutely everyone stop reading this article and go pledge to the KickStarter.  Okay now that you did that I have a small confession to make.  The last hidden set would have also been revealed on May 7th if it didn’t reach $30,000, I’m just impatient.  On the bright side you’ll be getting some Fate Dice soon!

What do you think about these dice?  Are you planning to get some?  What other sets would you like to see?

Fate/Fudge Dice KickStarter

Hello there Goblin Beatniks!  It’s that time again and this week’s KickStarter is Thematic Fate/Fudge Dice from Front Range Games.  For those of you who followed the epic Fate Core KickStarter you know that you need Fudge dice to play the game and what better way than with your own custom themed set?  The default set for the KickStarter is a rose and pentagram but there are several other sets you can vote to have available as well as a Backer.  This KickStarter isn’t yet fully funded so not only is this a chance to get some cool gaming accessories but also a chance to help make someone else’s gaming dream into a reality.  There are still over two weeks left so there’s time to get your own set (of 4) dice.   Also, as soon as it is funded 3 additional sets will be available based on backer voting, so you can vote for your favorite set and then get it sent to you once the KickStarter is over!  Of course I’m a fan of the Cthulhu themed dice which is thankfully the #2 design.  Maybe I can convince the goblins to buy us a few sets.  Four sets is only $33 for US backers ($35 or $39 elsewhere).  Check out the top three voted themes below and let us know what you think about this KickStarter.
