One of the joys of running a Kickstarter is that you get a lot of spam from other anonymous creators, offering “you mention my KS and I’ll mention yours” deals. I delete and move on. But over the last couple of days, the deluge of spam got me thinking of what I’d actually recommend.
First up is another BOSR zine running as part of ZineQuest 4, The Medieval Margin-agerie Zine. “A 24-page zine of the grotesque, the weird, and the bizarre for OSR games. Featuring eight strange creatures written by Richard August.” This is from my good friends at Just Crunch Games/All Rolled Up, who are just down the road from me in Stockport, Greater Manchester. It’s already funded with nine days to go. Just Crunch, who put out Cthulhu Hack and The Dee Sanction recently, put out high-quality products and delivers them timely, so I have no hesitation in recommending this.
Only running for one week is Handiwork Game’s Maskwitches of Forgotten Doggerland. This is Jon Hodgson’s storytelling game, The Silver Road, mixed with his use of midjourney as a veteran industry artist to produce “a psychedelic Mesolithic role-playing game, placing your stories in Forgotten Doggerland – the land that lies drowned beneath the North Sea.” Again Handiwork Games produces high-quality products in a timely manner, and after receiving A|State 2nd Edition and Beowulf recently, I think they are my new favourite RPG company 🙂 But be fast on this one, there are only six days to go!
