I present to you the new Crowdfunding Collection #54, including every tabletop project started between 09.25 till 10.09.).

Recently returned from vacation there are no fewer than 62 projects started within the last two weeks.
The projects that sparked my interest the most, are those who I put in the story game category. Like Purgatory House, a quite cool Horror rpg, which sports an interesting Blackjack based system. Generations does intrigue me by offering a concept about characters once removed from life being reborn.  Survive Et Al is quite exciting, though maybe a tad boardgamey. Next to those games gamers who like Fate might fancy into the rocking mice of Heavy Metal Thunder Mouse or dive into the GoT inspired fantasy world of Sustina. There’s as well a new Edition of Outbreak: Undead.
Next to those I would like to point you to the Rider of the Black Sun game book by Mantikore, a book I heard is very well received, as well as the Chill Undead Sourcebook.
There are plenty of foreign language games as well. Like, you’ll find quite some projects from Germany. Such as the translation of Starfinder, which does quite entice me. Next to this there are two full games. At the one hand Fallen World with a system of its own, at the other hand Seelenfänger: Täuscherland which is based on Fate Core. Yet, the most interesting project for someone who does not speak German, is likely TSUKUYUMI. Not a tabletop RPG, yet an interesting game.
You’ll find many more projects in the list, I’ll invite you to check out:

I present to you the new Crowdfunding Collection #50, which includes every tabletop project started between till 08.21 till 09.04.

Following a brief break you’ll find two new German projects. Most notably there is HeXXen 1733 from Mirko Bader, which offers a baroque setting plagues by various monstrosities in need of protection.
Next to that, I extended my search for active crowdfundings towards the Spanish crowdfunding platform Verkami. Which currently aims to finance the translation of Barbarians of Lemuria as well as Little Fears. The projects are currently without a preview pictures, because I haven’t figured how to get the picture link.
As for the English projects, I am fascinated by IDENTECOs cool Cyberpunk setting and atmosphere, which has a certain nostalgic flair. Westbound on the other hand is a card based Weird West role-playing game and Era: Belam extends the Era family with a SF game.
You’ll find many more interesting projects, supplements, dice, accessories and more, just take a look:

I present to you the new Crowdfunding Collection #50, which includes every tabletop project started between 08.09 till 08.21.

In regards of English crowdfundings, I do really love Vanagard. A story focused game, in which one assume the roles of curious, anthropomorphic animal like creatures. Second to that I took a liking to SINS, a narrative game in which one assumes the role of powerful ex-dead fighting against monstrosities on a post-apocalyptic earth.
If you fancy over the top, satiric science fiction, just take a look at Iron Skies. Yet you might as well take a look at GROGNARD, a biography of Loren Wiseman.
In regards of the German tabletop RPG projects I do like Protektor a lot. It is a fun approach to Urban Fantasy. Where players play rather regular people with strange animal companions being heroic, or well trying to be. Next to that „Rise of the Dungeon Master“ gets a German translation by Feder & Schwert.
Next to those projects you’ll find aplenty of cool map projects and other interesting pages,.. just check the collection:

I present to you the new Crowdfunding Collection #48, which includes every tabletop project started between 07.31 till 08.09.
This edition features a slightly varied design. Feedback is appreciated :)

This collection presents the Dungeon World project by System Matters. Which aims to bring a translation of the Powered by the Apocalypse game to Germany, offering a beautiful Deluxe edition. It’s a project I’ve been excited about, and jumped on it as soon as it went live. Next to this I did choose to include the pre-order project for My Little Pony: Tales of Equestria by Ulisses Spiele. I don’t often include pre-orders, but this one just been to cute to skip.

Next to those the English projects are as well fabulous. I did back Wicked Pacts as the combination of Urban Fantasy with „Mafia“ elements hits right up my ally. The second edition of Stars without Numbers is a bit out of my budget, but sure worth having a look up. I do recommend the Seco Creek Vigilance Committee RPG. A Western RPG following the story game principles, putting the characters into an interesting place. Fans of the Powered by the Apocalypse games should take a look at Sixty Mile Sky. An SF take on PbtA I gladly support.

You’ll find three game books, „choose your own adventure“ game, where the first two do quite impress and tempt me. The hybrids offer a fascinating take on role-playing games and you’ll find a extended crowdfunding for the „Warring States“ The Dark Eye supplement.
Oh, and there are a bunch of (imho) exceptional projects. Like dice coins or coins designed with very cool motives. Even a tabletop smoke machine! Yet, see for yourself:

I had several runs of the V5 Pre-Alpha planned for, and promised to, various groups or people.  Thus, after the first one completed, I started organizing the next one on the German tabletop RPG Forum Nerdpol. Which eventually happened on 20th of July.

This article will describe how the game went, which challenges we encountered, as well as my thoughts regarding the scenario and rules. It is the second of a series of four actual plays. I will try my best to recall the game correctly, though I didn’t took notes during the game and things might get mixed up.

I will express my comment, thoughts, thoughts of players in block quotes.
You will experience spoilers in regards of the scenario „The Last Night“. Specially if you are a player of mine, planning to play in another run.

I present to you the new Crowdfunding Collection #48, which includes every tabletop project started between 07.24 till 07.31.

Within the collection I’d like to highlight the PbtA game „Legacy“. The Kickstarter that managed to get me out of my „need for vacation money“ induced backing hiatus. Another project I really do like the the German Retro-Box for DSA (The Dark Eye), which offers the first edition rules of the game.
Next to those projects you’ll find cool adventures, interesting supplements, nice dice accessories and more. Just have a look:

Within less than a week of its release I organized a group to play the V5 PlayTest scenario „The Last Night“ on the 10th of June via Google Hangout.

The article will describe how the game went, which challenges we encountered, as well as my thoughts regarding the scenario and rules. It is the first of a series of four actual plays. I will try my best to recall the game correctly, though I would point out that it is about a month and a half in the past.

I will express my comment, thoughts, thoughts of players in block quotes.

I present to you the new Crowdfunding Collection #47, which includes every tabletop project started between 07.17 till 07.24.

Following the FeenCon convention, which I attended and where I GM’ed a bunch of V5 games, I present to you the brief collection of current crowdfunding project.
One of its many highlights is „Paladin – Warriors of Charlemange“. A fresh tabletop rpg by Nocturnal Media, which will use the system provide by Pendragon for its fresh setting. Another highlight, though quite a contrast, is Xas Irkalla. A new Horror RPG in which the player characters will be transported to an alien and hostile world made from the dreams of dead psychics. Compared to Xas the world described in the Spire RPG appears somewhat brighter. Though not for the dark elves who have to fight the system of oppression in this cyberpunk setting.
There are many more interesting projects,… though have a look for yourself:

I present to you the new Crowdfunding Collection #46, which includes every tabletop project started between 07.10 till 07.17.

This project does feature two interesting projects from Germany, and one which is actually more of a cooperation. The biggest one, available in English, is Cthulhu Wars 3, an immensely popular board game that I feel still deserves a mention. You’ll find as well a pretty impressive and beautifully illustrated collection of token cards by Johannes Voss, that might be of good use for a tabletop game.
If your interested in tabletop RPGs in foreign languages, take a look at Neciamus. Its developed by games in Aachen/Aix la Chapelle and offers a fantasy setting, placed during the times of reformation, as well as a fresh system.
Among the „English“ projects I personally favor the „parsley games“. Which looks like an intriguing mix of boardgame, „computer“ text adventure and RPG. Though Firelight comes in in as a close second and The Last Remnants appears to be quite fascinating.
You’ll find quite a bunch of other, fascinating project. Thus have a look for yourself,…

I have had a first run of the V5 Playtest a few weeks ago. During the playtest I noticed that the character backgrounds as written, even though I already made a few alterations, did offer some some challenges.

In consequence I decided to give the characters a bigger overhaul for the next playtest. I would like to share my documents and do would be happy to receive comments or remarks.

For the playtest itself, please go to white-wolf.com and download it at their blog:
V5 pre-alpha: The curtain rises!.
If you run the playtest, please give them feedback. If you did alterations, like using the characters as I changed it, please mention it as the standard assumption will be that you ran it as written.
