My friend makes amazing belts, and he is launching a Kickstarter to make MOAR sweet belts at a cheaper price.

The author Orrin Grey is Kickstarting a hardcover edition of his first short story collection, Never Bet the Devil & Other Warnings. The stories have a heavy Lovecraftian feel. One of the stories is available for free on the Kickstarter, Black Hill. The stories are really, really good, and Black Hill alone has some gamable elements. We interviewed him on Technical Difficulties if you also want to hear his pitch.

Steve Jackson Games are doing a kickstarter for Dungeon Fantasy Roleplaying Game (GURPS engine).  Looks like they are seeing if they can drum up support for a print run, rather then sell PDFs.  The books do look pretty.

My favourite sci-fi webcomic (Crimson Dark) is back up after a long hiatus and now has a patreon account.

I've backed this:

Personally, I want more African-inspired epic and heroic fantasy in my life.

That looks super cool. And another card-based resolution system! I'm a fan of that. And yes, the world needs more African-
 culture-based fantasy. The only major property that I can think of that's devoted major attention to it is Magic the Gathering, with the Mirage block way back in 1996. Though Pathfinder does have some African-themed areas in its setting books.

The Kickstarter for Deep Madness seems pretty nice, especially for the Lovecraft curious.

Fear the Con 10 is Kickstarting now! It'll be in St. Louis Missouri next June 23rd and 24th. Attendance will be free, but the more money they can raise in the KS the better the con will be.

Incidentally, Fear the Con was where I first got to meet Ross and Caleb.

Harlem Unbound

Call of Cthulhu.  Harlem Renaissance.  Gumshoe support as well.

Get in.

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1881168175/harlem-unbound-a-cthulhu-roleplaying-game-sourcebo/description

Quote
Harlem Unbound is a unique RPG sourcebook that takes players into the exciting world of the Harlem Renaissance at its height, to face terrifying horrors from the Lovecraftian Mythos. This groundbreaking tome gives Keepers and players everything they need to bring this unique place and time to life, and engage with the people who gave it its soul.

Harlem Unbound is compatible with multiple systems, with options for investigating the Mythos on New York’s jazz-soaked streets using either Chaosium’s Call of Cthulhu RPG or any of the several GUMSHOE-powered investigative RPGs by Pelgrane Press.

This sourcebook flips the standard Lovecraftian view of minorities on its head, putting them in the role of heroes who must struggle against cosmic horrors while also fighting for a chance at equality. By default, the protagonists of Harlem Unbound are African American, not white (which is the standard assumption found in Lovecraftian fiction). Our heroes and heroines come from all walks of life with regard to class, ethnicity, race, religion, gender and sexual orientation.
 
The heart of the Renaissance was a revolution aimed at changing the world through art, ideas, and the written word. It was a uniquely powerful movement against the unjust status quo, a time in history that still inspires today. The history, people and stories in this book shine the spotlight on the people of Harlem, their successes and their struggles.



Some highlights

Quote
Test your moxie by stepping into the ring with the Galveston Giant, Jack Johnson. Bob and weave to stay one step ahead of the horrors humanity isn't meant to know.

Enjoy a night in the Dark Tower listening to jazz, sipping on bootleg whiskey, and verbally sparring with author Richard Wright. Find yourself, lose yourself, among the giants of the Renaissance.

Duck into the Cotton Club, avoiding the Nightgaunt's elevating deadly embrace. Find another way to get high and leave the turmoil behind.

SCENARIOS 

Harlem Hellfighters Never Die: An ancient enemy from the battlefields of World War I has returned to exact vengeance on the Hellfighters. Can you rally them to save the day, or will you join the legion of the dead? 

The Contender: When former heavyweight champion Jack Johnson asks the players to investigate the death of a young fighter, the case takes them to Harlem’s lowest and highest areas in search of answers—none of which are easy, and only open the door for much harder questions.

My only caveat is that some of their stretch goals are non-written products (lighter and a hoodie) which always cause problems.

It's a shame stretch goals don't include a King in Yellow adventure. Or some Dreamlands crossover like Dreamhounds of Paris.
