Kick Me, I'm Dreaming!

I've been far too quiet on this blog lately. I didn't even finish the RPGaDay thing, though I did only miss by 1.

But some things have come up on Kickstarter that might appeal to some of my remaining readership.

First of all, the GURPS Dungeon Fantasy Boxed Set. As long time readers may know, I've got a long history with GURPS. But GURPS has a reputation as a complicated system that just doesn't have the "pick up and play" appeal of something like D&D or Pathfinder.

This box set hopes to change that. The box set includes a focused subset of rules for the Dungeon Fantasy genre, pregenerated characters, a small bestiary and an adventure. Old hands should find much familiar, while new players should not be overwhelmed.

It's fully funded and working its way through stretch goals. I'm a backer, but not as much as I'd like to be, so maybe if all of my readers throw in, it will be like I backed this the way I wanted to back this.

It's also been a while since I've posted anything Oz related. Which is the primary reason I'm mentioning this next one.

The Wicked Wizard of Oz is a Fighting Fantasy-style Choose your Own Adventure gamebook currently looking for funding. I am personally very choosy about my Oz and this hits both of my red flags: Focused on Wizard and dark/punk reimagining. I know this is a personal preference and there are certainly people reading this blog who enjoy that sort of thing.

A much clearer plus side is that the project is being undertaken by someone who has worked on Fighting Fantasy gamebooks in the past, as well as someone who has had a few successful Kickstarters.

It's very close to funding as I write this, with just a few days left.
