Kickstart Monday: Deadly Vampires and Shadowy Necromancers

Welcome to Kickstart Monday!!!! This is our weekly series featuring 2 or more crowdfunding projects in the tabletop gaming industry. I scour over platforms like KickstarterGamefound, and Indigogo to find projects that interest me. People would ask me what I think is worth backing. Since I was providing these recommendations all ready, what better way to do it than post a weekly blog about projects I am interested in.

Stay informed when new Kickstart Monday projects come out by following us on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter and following the #KickstartMonday hashtag.

This week I thought I would look for some great, fresh content for Dungeon Masters of Dungeons and Dragons. Here are two great adventure supplements you might consider adding to any of your games.

Fanged Fables

Fanged Fables from Luna Publishing features 5 new Dungeons and Dragons 5E adventures that you can insert into almost any campaign. This supplement will provide any Dungeon Master with 5 mini-adventures involving vampires in their D&D game. Use these adventures as side quests or expand on one or some of them to create a unique campaign experience.

These adventures are designed for parties between 3rd and 13th level with tips on how to up or downscale them based on your group. Each adventure has its own set of objectives and narratives. A small town terrified by a blood-sucking beast, an abbey overtaken by horrors, and even an orc tribe with a lust for blood.

Do you think your players have what it takes to survive the horrors of the vampire? If you do, then you should consider backing this project.

Mini Adventure #1: Shadow of the Necromancer 1E/5E Boxed Set

Shadow of the Necromancer from Dark Wizard Games is a boxed set adventure supplement for Dungeons and Dragons 1 edition as well at 5th! This adventure is for characters levels 1-3. The premise of the adventure is a young necromancer takes up residence in the previous layer of a long-dead necromancer dead set to claim the power and spells of the latter.

I find the premise for this adventure really intriguing and worth diving into. This could easily be tied into another campaign where perhaps the players actually defeated the very necromancer that is mentioned in this book. Go back and explore the digs with the new occupants as low-level characters to bridge the two campaigns together.

If you like the idea of spooky adventures, low-level undead like zombies and skeletons, and want to see if you can horrify your players then consider backing this project.

Kickstart Monday: Going Medieval on Your Games

Welcome to Kickstart Monday!!! This is our typically weekly series featuring two or more crowdfunded projects for tabletop gaming. Every week I take a dive into what looks interesting on sites like Gamefound and Kickstarter. Hopefully, you will find these projects of interest too!

This week’s featured projects include an amazing 3D board game and a Dungeons and Dragons 5E supplement that is sure to spice up your city encounters. Hopefully, you are as interested as I am. Let’s check them out!

Hortven: King of Fortress

Hortven: King of Fortress from MasterGames features one of the more unique board games we have brought to Kickstart Monday to date. This game features an interactive, three-dimensional castle that you play the board game on. You will play as one of six playable characters interacting with the other players, game-controlled characters, and exploring the castle itself.

Since the big attraction to this game is the castle itself it definitely needs a number of cool components. You can open gates, doors, and other components of the castle itself as you play the game. On top of that, you will find crates and boxes scattered through the castle. Plundering those, also tangible objects, you will find treasures such as relics that you can use to help achieve victory.

If you are like me then just looking at this game has to bring out your inner child. I can see myself spending hours just playing with some miniatures around this, perhaps inserting the castle into a role-playing game. Of course, I would play the game too!

The City Attractions Package

The City Attractions Package from Evil Pidgeon Games will help you Dungeon Masters out there add new elements to your fantasy cities. Cities are more than just places to shop. People live there. They need activities. Town Criers, taverns, eateries, and more are the standard fare at most game tables.

This supplement will add NPCs, attractions, maps, random tables, and features that you can add into your fantasy cities to make them feel more real. It’s one thing to have players enter a city. It’s quite another for them to get a true feeling that the city is lived in, massive, and full of life.

If you are a Dungeon Master that is like me and wants to prep and create the best game experience for your players then this project is something you will likely want to look into.

Kickstart Monday: Your Dice Empowered by Thrones

Welcome to Kickstart Monday!!!! If you are new to #KickstartMonday then we tip our hats to you. We dive into crowdfunding applications like Kickstarter and Gamefound to find two or more crowdfunded tabletop gaming projects that we think you should know about. You’ll find board games, gaming accessories, gaming furniture, RPGs, dice, miniatures, and more on #KickstartMonday.

On this week’s #KickstartMonday we dive into a very dice-themed week. Let’s dive into this week’s projects!

Reliquaries: Hand Painted Dice Thrones by Dwarven Forge

Reliquaries: Hand Painted Dice Thrones by Dwarven Forge is a unique project featuring cool pedestals to give your dice the proper respect that they need. We have all had dice that just will not roll well, but what about rewarding those dice with the special treatment that they deserve. Each of these reliquaries is hand-sculpted and painted with an eye to detail.

So besides being places of honor for your dice you can actually put these to good use. Leverage them for tracking ability stats, damage, skill modifiers, or any number of things you might need markers for in your games.

While I feel that Dwarven Forge markets these a bit more to the RPG market, I can see myself using these to track the turn in a game of Warhammer Fantasy Battles, mark the damage taken on a miniature in battle, or track any number of effects.

If you are like us and love dice then you want to give your dice the respect that they deserve. Don’t jail your dice. Give them the place of honor that they deserve.

Handcrafted RPG Character Cat’s Eye Gemstone Dice

These handcrafted RPG character cat’s eye gemstone dice from Diving Hippo Studios is unique in a market filled with polyhedral dice. Each dice features a symbol that represents one of the 12 most popular character classes in Dungeons and Dragons. This really lets you have a unique set of dice that really represents your character.

The dice are made from Cat’s Eye which is a semi-transparent gemstone. The dice are hand-carved. Since they are gemstone they are heavier, not quite the weight of metal dice but weighty still. Though the carving process won’t have quite the same perfection as the sides of manufactured dice, it does mean that these dice will be truly unique and made just for you.

If you love to own unique dice, have a player character that’s truly special, or a class that you love to play then pick up a set of very unique dice then this is going to likely be the set you have always been wanting.
