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.
As you know, by now. Exiled News doesn’t follow a strict plan, in fact, we have a bunch of contributors who fly by now and then. There are a few of us who work away at various posts to provide a snippet of news and an insight to creators large and small across the tabletop roleplaying game scene, boardgames, as well as video games.
So let me cut to the core and talk about Ethan. H. Reynolds for a little bit.
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.
Kids on Brooms, and yes, you can probably guess where I’m going with this one. It’s a delve into wizards, witches, magic, fantastical creatures and more. Written by Jonathan, Doug, and with the talents of Spenser Starke who created the concept of Kids on Booms (and once again illustrated by Heather Vaughan) – it lets you live out those Potter fantasies without throwing a single cent into the vast pockets of Rowling.
Strixhaven: A Curriculum of Chaos is in the news again, and it’s not hard to see why. A lot of the talk around the book is hugely positive, but if you’re looking for a good eyes and hands onto the latest release coming in from the D&D WotC team, then EN World’s own Beth Rimmels has got you covered. Beth’s review is weighty and hits on all the major ups and down of the book in a clear and concise manner.
