Kickstarter Interests: 4/9/2017

This is a follow up to some Kickstarters that I am currently watching. If only I could buy them all! Alas, time and money is always the issue.

Clash of Steel: A Tactical Card Game of Medieval Duels

You stand across the bloodied mud of the battlefield. Your mortal enemy is just out of range, seething with lethal intent. Only one of you will walk away; only one will be victorious. Choose your weapons, test your mettle, and cross steel with your foe in a duel to the death.

Clash of Steel is a tactical two-player card game of medieval duels. Every element of play is designed to explore the nuanced and complex decision-making of crossing blades, from choosing your stance to selecting your target.

A two player card game that can be played in 15 min. There appears to be a lot of strategy and reading your opponent involved. The size of the game is designed to be able to be thrown into your bag and go. Only $12 plus $4-6 shipping. I just had to back this.

The Goon™ Roleplaying Game is based on the multiple Eisner Award-winning comic, The Goon™, by Eric Powell.

Feast them peepers on a samplin' of what we got lined up for ya in this 192-page extravaganza:
A guide to the Town's mean streets and deadly secrets
New Edges and Hindrances so your character can toughen up and be like Goon
Setting Rules to help you bring the comedy and tragedy of Goon and Franky's pulp-noir world to life
An adventure generator full of ideas to help build your own Goon™ stories
An unholy pack of shock-inducing Grievous Yarns (Savage Tales)
All the most infamous tough guys, lugs, dames, and evil, icky things from the comic's entire run—with Savage Worlds game statistics
And an original Plot Point that sees the return of a few of Goon and Franky's oldest and hillbilly-est enemies!

It's printed in a whopping 192 pages of graphic novel format and available in Limited Edition hardcover, so lemme tell ya, bub—this is one game you won't wanna miss!

This game ain't about heroes, per se. More like antiheroes. Join the Goon's crime syndicate—or play as Goon, Franky, and the rest of their crew—and fight off the rival gangs what's encroachin' on your turf, while you collect on Goon's debts and whatnot. You might also succeed at fighting off the tide of bleak suffering that's set to consume yer soul. Then again you might not!

But while you're contemplatin' the psychology and so forth, make sure to watch out for Zombie Priest and his legions of groanin', brain-chomping zombies; they're a constant hassle. If that ain't bad enough, there's crazed-yet-brilliant Dr. Hieronymus Alloy and his robots goin' on a rampage every other week. You also want to keep a lookout for swarms of chug-heads...what they call "changelings." Yeah. They're nasty little buggers.

Believe me, pal, we ain't even got to the worst of it yet. You sure you wanna join up with Goon's crew?

One of the big things right now is that backing either this or their Fear Agents campaign grants you pdfs of the Deadlands Player's Guide and Marshal's Handbook, East Texas University, Rippers Resurrected Player's Guide and Game Master's Handbook, and The Last Parsec Core rulebook. That is an insane bonus with tremendous value. If you have been at all interested in Savage Worlds settings, jump on this! I'm backing, just debating on if I am getting the softcover, or splurging for the hardcover...

The Iron Crows of Kazhuk Izril and other dwarf miniatures

In 1973, a study carried out by researchers from the University of Borghetto San Nicolò elaborated the "Scale of happiness" (or De Carli's Scale, by its creator's name), an order of magnitude which measures the happiness of a person on the basis of certain factors. Without going into details, the various studies correlated the proportion between the income of an individual and the extent of his collection of Dwarfs: in 94% of cases, it has been demonstrated that those who spend at least 42% of their income in Dwarf miniatures are on average happier than others.This discovery shocked the scientific community at that time, generating fierce debates and disputes, but everything was soon hushed up by the lobbies of fashion which saw in Elves a model of beauty more functional to their business. In defiance of the system and the standards imposed from above, we of the Durgin Paint Forge have worked hard for more than two years to realize a collection of Dwarfs that can allow you take a leap forward in your personal De Carli's Scale. This project is an act of love: we know how important it is for you to have awesome miniatures with which to widen your collection of dwarfs, and precisely for this reason we have endeavored to give you only our best. A spontaneous, visceral, loud and often inappropriate love: typically Italian, indeed. You will soon find that only a temporary restraining order may prevent us from loving you. In the meantime, sit down comfortably and enjoy excellence.

These may be some of the best looking dwarfs that I have seen, and the prices are really reasonable. Sadly I don't think that I can back this project right now as I just can't justify spending the money after backing some other projects. If I had a need for dwarfs I would as the models are simply awesome.

There are a few others that I am looking at but there are still plenty of days left on those. Anything here spark your interest?
