Crowdfunding by Bundle contributors – Aug 2017by Bundle Operator Saturday 12 August 2017 0 comments
Did you get Kevin Crawford‘s Old School SFRPG Stars Without Number in our October 2013 SWN Bundle or its July 2014 revival? Last week Kevin’s Kickstarter for a revised edition of Stars Without Number passed US$100,000. He hit all his stretch goals on Day 1, including the last, characteristically prudent goal: “At $50,000, I will be extremely grateful to you all and have the wisdom to refrain from offering further stretch goals. I am but one man. I’ve completed every Kickstarter I’ve ever launched on-time or early, chiefly because I’ve known when to stop promising and when to start working.” The campaign runs through August 31.
We presented Kenneth Hite’s nonfiction treatise Tour de Lovecraft: The Tales waaay back in our August 2013 Bundle of Holding +5. Now Ken and Atomic Overmind are Kickstarting a new sequel volume, Tour de Lovecraft: The Destinations. In the manner of The Tales, the new book perceptively explores HP Lovecraft’s settings and the hidden routes connecting his stories. The Tour de Lovecraft Kickstarter ends August 28.
Fans of our two King Arthur Pendragon Bundles, take note: Less than two weeks remain to pledge for Paladin: Warriors of Charlemagne. Paladin adapts the Pendragon rules to historical Carolingian events and the medieval epics of The Matter of France. In Paladin the players play young Frankish squires or knights in the service of one of Charlemagne’s powerful vassals. By going on adventures they acquire glory and riches, become lords of their own lands, build castles, and found their own family. The road to fame leads to the ultimate goal: becoming one of the legendary paladins themselves, along the likes of Roland, Ogier the Dane, Renaud, Oliver, William Shortnose, and others. The Paladin campaign ends August 25.
