[19:37] <+MarkWalker> Well, I’m Mark Walker. I’m a long-time game designer, mostly wargames. Some of my most popular are Locl ‘n Load, World at War, Night of Man (sci-fi), ’65, and now, my first RPG, Dark War. Dark War is an RPG set in 1985.
[19:38] <+MarkWalker> It’s WW3, West Germany. The immense death and destruction of the war has called the dark things that live among us–Vamps, Werewolves, demons, witches, and other stuff to the war. So the RPG mixes equal parts realistic modern combat and paranormal entities. DONE
[19:30] <+John> Good evening everyone, I’m John Welch from Silentcandle Games.
[19:31] <+John> Naturally I’m quite excited to talk to you all about our upcoming game “Heroes of Estaria.”
[19:31] <+John> Heroes of Estaria is a fantasy roleplaying game aimed at Tabletop Gamers of just about any skill level. It starts off simple yet can bloom into something with loads of depth.
[19:31] <+ArionGames> Good evening everyone, i am Graham Bottley from Arion Games
[19:31] <+ArionGames> I am very pleased to be invited this evening to talk about my current KS campaign:
[19:31] <+ArionGames> Vikingr
[19:32] <+ArionGames> As some of you will know, many of the games i write originate with a game i want to run for my group
[19:32] <+ArionGames> There are many Viking-themed RPG’s out there, but none really scratched the right itch!
[19:33] <+ArionGames> Hence me writing this one
[19:33] <+ArionGames> What i was after was something with a simple base mechanic, that was quick to learn and create characters for, but had plenty of options
[19:34] <+ArionGames> So i adapted the OpenD6 system (the same as i used for Sorcerers of Ur-Turuk) and made a Viking game that fitted my needs
[19:35] <+ArionGames> The KS is here:

[19:35] <+ArionGames> and is going well so far!
[19:36] <+ArionGames> What would you like to know about it?
[19:40] <+Max> Hello everyone! My name is Maxim Krylov, I’m the author of a tabletop RPG called Interbellum and heavily inspired by real First World War and Interwar periods. The game is focused on combat and surviving of your squad of battle brothers in a grimdark Great War or in chaotic postwar period of civil and local wars.
[19:42] <+Max> Our setting is based on the idea “what if we mix the era of the early dieselpunk with fantasy and make magic as the basis for technological progress instead physics and nuclear tech”
[19:46] <+Max> As for the rules, we are developing our own system based on d6. We want to make so simple rules that would be understandable and accessible even for newcomers in tabletop RPGs. In addition, this has a great advantage – we can adapt our system specifically to the setting. Of course, this is a very difficult job and will require many tests.
[19:31] <+Jamie> Hi! I’m Jamie Chambers. I’ve worked on games about stones held by sovereigns, dragons and lances, big damn heroes, frakking toasters, as well as saving people and hunting things—the family business.
[19:32] <+Jamie> More recently I’ve pushed card games about building elder gods, books about very hungry cthulhupillars, and mutants on the starship Warden.
[19:32] <+Jamie> And as of today, crowdfunded a 5th Edition D&D-compatible adventure: A Delve In The Cave coming to game stores this fall.
[19:34] <+Jamie> Also written fiction and non-fiction, and served for nearly a decade on the board of directors for the Game Manufacturers Association.
[19:35] <+Jamie> Happy to talk about nearly anything. Pull up a chair and let’s chat!
[19:31] <+KeenanDunham> Thank you, I’m Keenan Dunham and I created and released on Kickstarter a pen and paper RPG called Necroropia
[19:31] <+DLB_Chuck> link?
[19:31] <+KeenanDunham> Necrotopia is an RPG of colliding apocalypses
[19:32] <+KeenanDunham> (Link: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/78190667/necrotopia-handbook-to-the-apocalypse)https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/78190667/necrotopia-handbook-to-the-apocalypse
[19:32] <+KeenanDunham> We have book 1 ready to ship, and book 2 in editing, with 3 more planned and a hardback omnibus
[19:33] <+KeenanDunham> The first is an Apocalypse on Earth, the second is Ragnarok set in Asgard, and the others contain more apocalyptic events, places, and characters to use.
[19:48] <+TrinityGM> Good Evening Folks I am Jonathan Gadbois, Creator of a New RPG that has been released on Kickstarter. It is called Trinity
[19:49] <+TrinityGM> its a very simple D10 based system…..with unlimited various of character creation
[19:50] <+TrinityGM> and one of the few games that allows you to play exactly what you want without restrictions as most classes
[19:50] <+TrinityGM> now while that is a very basic intro
[19:50] <+TrinityGM> the best way to explain in more detail is to field questions from everyone
[19:31] <+PsychicCactusChrisDean> GREETINGS READERS! I am Christopher Dean (you can call me Chris), a large part of Psychic Cactus Games (me and some freelance artists and a few volunteers).
[19:32] <+PsychicCactusChrisDean> I am here to talk about IS IT A PLANE!?, a comic book roleplaying game on Kickstarter. You create a comic book as you play, not just playing characters, but DRAWING their actions. This is rapid doodling; there is no time for artistic skill.
[19:33] <+PsychicCactusChrisDean> It’s a game of communication and interpretation. The Editor (the GM) has to interpret your drawings in order to decide what happens next. (And there are other mechanics around this that I shall explain.)

[19:31] <+Eloy-3EG> Hey all! I’me Eloy Lasanta, owner of Third Eye Games, and New Agenda Publishing (though that’s a story for another time)
[19:31] <+Eloy-3EG> Today I’m here to discuss my newest game currently on kickstarter called Part-Time Gods Second Edition
[19:31] <+Eloy-3EG> (Link: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/eloylasanta/part-time-gods-second-edition-tabletop-rpg/)https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/eloylasanta/part-time-gods-second-edition-tabletop-rpg/
[19:32] <+Eloy-3EG> In this game, you explore what it means to be human and what it means to be divine. You have to balance the two sides of your life. You’re a god, but being a god doesn’t pay the bills.
[19:33] <+Eloy-3EG> Neither does it alleviate all the responsibilities you have, from your family, friends, social groups, your job, or even your worshippers, other gods, etc.
[19:33] <+Eloy-3EG> Part-Time Gods Second Edition is a game about finding what’s important to you as a god and as a person, and making hard choices on what will be given your attention. 🙂
[19:33] <+Eloy-3EG> I think that’s enough rambling.
[19:38] <+THEBOOKOFDARKSECRETS> My name is Matt Bogdan. On FB my name is Matthew A. Bogdan. I have been creating Pathfinder adventures for almost 2 years and…
[19:39] <+THEBOOKOFDARKSECRETS> now want to add D&D 5e to it.
