Looting Atlantis designed by Nick Sauer

Published by Shoot Again Games on Kickstarter

 

Imagine you are a citizen of Atlantis and the continent is sinking due to a violent eruption.  Knowing that the your home is lost other citizens begin to flee.  You and the other players around you however, realize that the other civilizations are primitive in comparison so you begin Looting Atlantis to secure your family’s future.

Looting Atlantis is a race to gather as much Atlantean equipment as possible.  The only problems are that the lava is destroying everything, and other citizens are trying to thwart you.  Looting Atlantis combines a race against the clock, with card counting, critical thinking and a drafting mechanic.

Ronnie tells us about Dungeon Saga the Kings of war rules what’s new for Warpath and Daeadzone and the Dreadball ranking system that’s coming soon.

I played Dungeon Saga and it has a good feel to it.  What I mean by that is it’s not like some of the other dungeon crawl games on the market where you feel like your’e playing a board game.  In Dungeon Saga I felt like the mechanics blended well with the story too.   I will definitely be bringing more to you in the near future.

I had the chance to watch this at Gen Con and it looks promising.  I would have filmed it for you but my camera was out of juice.

In this interview Jeff and I talk about their level up line and Fallen Frontiers.  Jeff was the only one at the booth so this is a little choppy from all the edits.

I find that their minis will make you happy.

Cold War Packshot550Cubicle 7 Entertainment launch Cold War espionage setting for Call of Cthulhu on Kickstarter

Following on from their first two smash-hit Kickstarters, Cthulhu Britannica: London and The Lone Wolf Adventure Game, Cubicle 7 Entertainment Ltd have announced that their latest project – World War Cthulhu: Cold War – is now live on Kickstarter!

World War Cthulhu: Cold War is a new Call of Cthulhu setting full of thrilling espionage, tense horror and sudden betrayal set at the height of the Cold War in the 1970s. The tangled webs of the spymasters tear and rejoin, double and triple agents make their moves and counter-moves, and it’s hard to be sure which side you’re really working for. Nuclear destruction hangs over everyone, and a few people at the heart of western intelligence continue their personal battle against the insidious influence of a much older enemy…

Kobold Press has a new Kickstarter up and running.  Here is a sample from the campaign.

 

Sometimes, unlikely heroes emerge from strange and forbidden places: dragons’ dens, murky swamps, magical forges and the realms of Shadow.

A bull-headed corsair smashes through a line of skeletal warriors, her war axe sending skulls flying! Her kobold companion darts nimbly in and out of the fray wreaking havoc, as arrows ping off the gearforged paladin’s brass hide and the darakhul fighter creeps up behind the evil necromancer, licking his chops in anticipation of the feast to come…

Bring monstrous heroes and astounding new twists to your Pathfinder RPG campaign!

Have you heard the news? Our Season 4 Kickstarter has reached its funding goal and is in its final days. It has been a rough journey though; more on that in a moment. I just want to thank all of you who have pledged and shared this on different social media groups.  Without you this wouldn’t have happened.  Now that it’s almost over I want to really make it fun, but first I’m asking that you read the story and then I’ll share what is in store for the rest of the journey.

When the project first started I was all fired up to do all of the social media and post updates that needed to be done. Then it hit.  I lost my hard drive and before I knew it a week had gone by, without any work on my Kickstarter being done.  In that time my wife managed to fix it up for me.  But the time I had to work was short lived, I was summoned for jury duty.  Which is nothing like you see on television, but it is time consuming.   I hoped and prayed that I wouldn’t be selected, but I was. It caused me to move my work schedule around a bit and I lost three days of good social media and posting to the Kickstarter project.

On my last day of jury duty I weighed the potential of canceling the Kickstarter.  I went back and forth measuring the pros and cons of what the better choice would be. This carried on late into the night, until I decided I’d cancel it in the morning and relaunch in a week or two.  Tired, I went to bed. I didn’t sleep well.

In the morning I woke to a nearly funded campaign. Instilled with excitement, I rushed to Hootesuite and hit my social media network calling out to all gamers.  It wasn’t long before Marc Tassin finished funding the project. (A quick side note, Marc is the current mastermind behind the Gen Con Writer’s Symposium and the Pathfinder setting World of Aetaltis: The Temple of Modren.)

I’ve spent the last 24 hours totally distracted from my “real” life by the Kickstarter.  I have been both distraught and ecstatic at the same time. Distraught because I haven’t really accomplished all of what I set out to do and I kind of feel like I failed.  I know the situations that arose weren’t really my fault, but I still feel responsible. Not to mention that I haven’t really had fun with it, which is always a part of  my plan. Ecstatic because, well, we’re funded and I’m about to have some fun.

I mentioned I was constantly distracted by this Kickstarter.  Well, the result of my distraction is that I’m going to shake it up a bit.  I’m reworking the stretch goals (actually changed some yesterday) and how they are obtained.

First I’m going to ask you for your help and in return I’ll add new unique stretch goals.  What is cool about this is that you get to be a part of the idea without even pledging.  Here is what you can do to participate.

  1. Visit the Kickstarter.
  2. Click Share – a pop up box will open.
  3. Find the Facebook icon and click it.

At 150 shares I will unlock a road to Gen Con 2015 living article.  Well a page really that will document not only my endeavors of this journey, but stories that exhibitors, publishers and game designers who are planning to attend the show are ready to share.  The first of these will be my thoughts about Gen Con and this whole Religious Freedom Bill.

I will unlock another “share” stretch goal every time the number doubles (300, 600, 1200).  I really don’t know what they will be yet, but they will be blog page related or an improvement to the functionality of the blog.

Next up we will be adding supporter related stretch goals.  You don’t have to pledge a lot to be involved, heck a dollar gives you a “number”.  These stretch goals will be 25 and 45 for now, I’ll add more if needed.  The first will open up the next stretch goal waiting to be unlocked.  Will you be number 25 or 45? I hope so!

There are only four days left, but I know we can blow some of these stretch goals out of the water, especially with these new and unique stretch goals.

Again I’d like to thank all of you for being a part of this community.

Matt
