I was scouring the net since I can’t sleep, and I keep nocturnal hours. Something caught my eye on Kickstarter, something that is spelled Fléaux! but pronounced Flay-O. With the tagline ‘Tonight we bleed but tomorrow we’ll be rich!” – It’s down to about 3 hours on Kickstarter and we love (especially me) to call on Kickstarters that have done well beyond their original goal, but also to show Kickstarter RPGs that catch our eye. Kobayashi’s Flay-O did just that!
We love Kickstarters here at Exiled News, in fact, we adore any third party funded projects in RPG a lot. Me, I am a big fan of magic, hence my latest build on Elden Ring playing with sorcery! Talking of magic though, this is a new project that could do with your help and a boost. There’s 14 days to go and the creators are looking for £4,287 to bring it to life. They have just raised (so far) £1,611 of the goal and really could do with a boost to that amount.
Son of Oak is coming back to City of Mist, or rather they’re bringing a streamlined version of the City of Mist system to the RPG space in the form of COM: Reloaded as the driving force behind their brand-new setting.
Heckin’ Good Doggos is a game of make believe where players can experience the world from an animal’s point of view. Some things will seem familiar, like protecting their backyard from potential threats and protecting their owners, while others are purely fantastic and whimsical situations they find themselves in like helping a ghost resolve its business so it can leave this world. It is simultaneously serious and silly, with an emphasis on crafting scenarios that make players have a blast while also having to solve the many challenges they will experience in ways that only doggos can.
GROK?! Is deeply inspired by the old-school adventure games of the past, the creator cites that it’s been influenced by greater works such as Cortex Prime, Electric Bastionland, Fate Core, Freeform Universal, Index Card RPG, Knave, Numenera, Savage Worlds, Shadow of the Demon Lord, Technoir, Troika!, and Vagabonds of Dyfed.
Roleplaying is good stuff, and it can be a wonderful tool when applied to the education sphere. Especially, when it comes to kids. Children are natural, adept roleplayers given the right situation and 9th Level Games is about to bring their new Venture Village RPG to Kickstarter in February!
A single-session RPG written by Stefano Burchi, and published by Asterico Edizioni has landed on Kickstarter with 157 backers, and pulling in so far £7,048 of their £6,664 goal. It’s a powerful game, set in a turbulent time and the publisher has the talent to pull it off too.
Shotguns & Sorcery is a heady mix of high fantasy, and Mike Hammer style hardboiled noir. It’s packed with freelancers, and wizards, who skulk through the streets of the game’s setting – Dragon City – and explore the dangerous dungeons. They hang out in glowglobe illuminated speakeasies and swap tall tales of their exploits. The use pistols and wands, as well as other magic items.
