Ima back "A War Of Whispers" reprint KS. I really liked the loyalty mechanism in the first run, but I balked for whatever reason I can't recall, and regretted it. Now it turns out (a) some of the production was kinda cheap, but they've ramped it up for the new edition, and (b) there's some expansion content also now, so yay, I love expansions, more is always better (coughnotalwaysbutusuallycough).

A lot of RPG stuff lately including The Mork Borg Zine, Kingdoms Zine, Monsters! Monsters!, and Slipgate Chokepoint. In 'against all sense and good judgment' news i also jumped on HEL: The Last Saga cos i have a few camels i need to choke.

I'm backing the Bloodfields KS since I'm already a Titan Forge Patreon and I obviously need yet another skirmish game in my life.

I backed Bullet from Level 99 games just now. It's a shmup themed real time puzzle game that's kinda like a cross between Quacks of Quedlinberg and Puyo Puyo/Puzzle Fighter. Looks real fun.

+1 for Slipgate Chokepoint. It looks fraggin’ great. It’s a 1990s FPS themed book for the Stay Frosty RPG, which is itself a very DOOM/Aliens/Starship Troopers sort of deal. Obnoxious lethality, simple characters, plenty of rip and tear.

Well, despite having sworn never to kickstarter anything ever, I have become a backer. My wife is really into puzzles, so I backed the Magic Puzzles .

It looks like a solid product and they seem to be more or less prepared to go to press. I'm only a little worried that the massively overfunded nature of this particular Kickstarter project might lead to delays or other problems. Oh well, that's how it is. 50 bucks for 3 puzzles with some extra gamified elements seems like a pretty good deal to me.

I backed Nemesis Lockdown and am picking up the Carnomorphs. I of course have a ton of game from the first KS that I haven't even used yet... but I like the system and think the changes in Lockdown look pretty cool.

This game is a hit in my group, which makes the decision easy.

Once I knew that the first Nemesis core and expansions were coming with Lockdown, and the price, I sold my core and expansion that I had bought retail and aftermarket and will replace them in this KSer in sundrop for 2/3 what I previously paid for them. I may even get Lockdown but I have a stupid number of other games arriving before next September that one Nemesis is probably enough ... but who knows

I skipped HEL as it was too similar to Tainted Grail and Oathsworn, and Adventures in Neverland because it was (for me) just to expensive for what you got but it is a very good idea and theme (and I'll see what price it comes out in retail next year).

Two others I'm looking at - Starlight, I have access to the Pledgemanager, and Euthia: Torment of Resurrection, a kind of expanded MageKnight but in a more traditional rpg/boardgame format.
