[shopping] Temptation waits... what are you resisting?

Looking at @negromaestro's post, they may well do that.
Not trying to discourage people, just making sure we take calculated risks. I have two Kickstarters by one creator, whose team survived cancer, divorce, financial disaster, and are still working years later on the project, updating us and struggling along.

I also backed a terrible Kickstarter that took all the backer's money and never produced the unique Afro-Caribbean Voodoo cards. :-(

To be fair, James “Alas Vegas” Wallis did the same. Left his backers hanging out to dry for years with poor and - frankly - unbelievable comms while he worked on other projects. He did fulfil eventually but the project was dead to me by then.

From what I understand, the anticipation might have been the best bit of Alas Vegas. In which case Mr Wallis may have been doing you all a favour...

(I did pick it up for £5 in the Expo bring and buy, but I haven't read it yet. Given that reading it means you can't play it, I also may be enjoying 'the best bit')
 
At the risk of spreading temptation - just read about a new rpg coming from Chaosium. Lords of the Middle Sea is post-apocalyptic, set in the ruins of a flooded America, using BRP. (Edit: I was going to say post-apocalyptic fantasy, but actually my skim suggested the same kind of vibe as, say, Mortal Engines with no monsters or magic.)

So the latest news is that Wyvern Gaming is pushing for a Kickstarter funding model for the Stargate RPG. The game itself is powered by DnD5e. So, yes, I am tempted by the simplicity of not having to learn a new rules engine, but then again, why Kickstarter? If the timing clashes with other notable products, I will pass on this.


Also did anyone notice we have a specific logo for Stargate RPG?

Another in the rash of games using the D&D rules for things that would be better served with other engines so that they can benefit from the user base.

I mean, what you'll get is a three-way fork of the DNA. D&D itself; things that use it badly and die; and things that create working but scarcely recognisable variants.
