WARNING: The audio quality this week was not ideal for Matt’s remote audio. Apologies for the difficult listening. We will find a better solution for next time.

We just have one topic today – KICKSTARTERS

A few examples of current crowdfunding campaigns. Warzone Eternal by Res Nova, Blade Runner by Free League and Household RPG by 2LM and CMON. We discussing generally what is good about the platform and how this recent boom may be drawing attention away from small projects that need Kickstarter attention the most.

My guest host this week is Matt Robinson.

Wizards of the Coast has announced the return of two popular settings now for 5E. Unfortunately, according to Twitter, Tracy Hickman and Margaret Weis, creators of Dragonlance and Jeff Grubb, creator of Spelljammer, were not involved in the announcement and found out at the same time everyone did during the announcement. We talked previously about the lawsuit involving the new Dragonlance novels. It doesn’t make WotC look great to ignore the original creators of these settings. Is this to emphasize a break from the past or a chance to save some money?

During the D&D Direct announcement last week, Modiphius Entertainment had a strange announcement of their own. In an attempt to possible distract from WotC, Modiphius had an hour long livestream announcement that was just a torchlit wall that eventually crumbles after a very long wait with only some slight change in lighting. They revealed their new TTRPG Cohors Cthulhu set in ancient Rome, a spinoff of Against the God Themselves, set in the same universe as Achtung! Cthulhu. I guess they were following the old adage “if you can’t beat ‘em, just be boring and confusing” or something like that.

We finally have a date for the Kickstarter campaign for Warzone Eternal. It will be launching May 17th, but be sure to listen to the entire livestream to make sure that date is correct. We talked with Alex Kanous from Res Nova Games previously about the new game and crowdfunding campaign. This should be a fun game to follow and hopefully a big success on Kickstarter. Hopefully with either the Cardinal’s blessing or the influence of the Dark Symmetry we will see the return of wargaming in the Mutant Chronicles universe.

Finally, there is a new release in Japan a a Swedish TTRPG, Kutulu by Mikael Bergström. Call of Cthulhu is the most popular tabletop roleplaying game in Japan. This is a much more rules light and streamlined d6 system. The insanity mechanic especially stands out as a great innovation to the Lovecraft setting. The Swedish language PDF is available as pay-what-you-want PDF on DriveThruRPG. With a little language software translation magic you can get an idea of how this system works. Hopefully we will see an English language release. Free League are you listening?

An English edition of the Household TTRPG design by Italian studio 2LM Press is being released by CMON who recently purchased the studio. The setting involves playing Littlings, small creatures like Faeries and Boggarts that originated in European folklore.

Some disturbing information has come out concerning the creator of the Empire of the Petal Throne and the Tekumel setting, one of the earliest roleplaying settings that wasn’t Dungeons and Dragons. It was discovered that Professor M.A.R. Barker wrote Serpent’s Walk , an anti-Semitic novel that was published under a pseudonym in 1991. What does the mean for the future of the setting and the Tekumel Foundation?

Late to the game as they were with the popularity of X-wing, WhizKids is producing a skirmish boardgame based on Dungeons and Dragons. The game designer, Nicholas Yu, revealed on Twitter that he is working on D&D: Onslaught. The game was shown off at GAMA and will feature a Combat Dial system to track stats.

RollVsEvil is a new tabletop non-profit organization focusing its first campaign on Ukraine Relief. Many of the biggest companies in tabletop are involved including R. Talsorian, Magpie, Paizo, Green Ronin, Roll20, GAMA, and more.

Modiphius announces the end of their license to produce the Mutant Chronicles TTRPG third edition. All of their current stock of MC material will be half price until June when it will be discontinued. This will also include the remaining stock of their Siege of the Citadel. Did that delayed Kickstarter have anything to do with the end of their license? WizKids will collaborate with Kid Robot to produce a series of 3-inch vinyl figures based on the Dungeons and Dragons first edition Monster Manual. This set will include 14 blind boxes of the miniatures with a slightly chibi design thanks to Kid Robot. It is an odd translation of the original 1E illustrations. Critical Role ran a one shot of an Elden Ring RPG sponsored by Bandai Namco. Will it be a modified 5E or something closer to the upcoming Dark Souls TTRPG? Critical Role also announced another theatrical event partnered with Cinemark to bring their season three campaign to theaters. $40 gets you a ticket and a t-shirt. Round up the Critters and find a cinema near you! Oh, and Cursed City returns. No reasons given.
