I am sure this will come as a surprise to no one but the Feng Shui 2 kickstarter is live and it is a monster.

About 12 hours after it launched an already at +50k (original goal was 8k) in backing.

Already backed! Feng Shui is in my all-time top 5 RPGs. A second edition will be so much fun.

I guess Ken and Robin weren't lying about fans being whipped into a frenzy.

I'm glad to see that, finally, the Horrors of War kickstarter is now going to have the full digital download option. Maybe the 32K stretch goal is not out of reach now.

I am glad too, but I do worry about the harassment/spam John Crowe received in order for him to finally give in.  People can be a bit. . . fanatic.

That's fair comment, for sure.

Speaking of fanaticism, with nine days to go in the funding period we're going to have to get the news out about this pdf release to spur some momentum towards that awesome 32K two-books-for-one stretch goal.

I am glad as well, though i was in it for the physical book reward- PDF is a welcome addition. I'm glad Mr. Crowe relented.

If I could afford putting any more into the kickstarter for the 32k two-books-for-one deal, I would... What an awesome stretch goal.
Chados- the, uh... hands of fate.

ASG is making up for lost time with an enhanced digital pledge level at $40. I hope the kickstarter gets enough late momentum to reach the 32K mark. Getting the word out on social media *coughRosscough* seems warranted.

Mr. Glancy mentioned this kickstarter in his latest update to backers but i thought I would place it here to try to up its reach with people who might be interested.

The people who run the HP Lovecraft Film Festival in Portland are starting a second file festival focused on the undead. The festival is happening regardless but they have some fun backer levels items and backing it does help support independent horror cinema if you are unable to attend the fest.

Thanks for reminding me there are pledge levels for those of us who can't attend. (I'm on the West Coast but that weekend is impossible for me to get down to Portland) One of those hoodies would be a fun pledge to help support independent cinema.

While I live in Portland I have too much adult life stuff intruding in on my fun so am not able to attend but did pledge some small amount of money to up the chance they run this next year.

Apparently the guys over at Dead Gentlemen (Gamers: Dorkness Rising) have an RPG based on one of their films.  Looks like it is using the Fate system.

It's an RTS from the Planetary Annihilation studio where the factions are Giant Robots versus Elder Things! Humans are the harvestable resource! Can you imagine the  Ross vs Aaron raillery potential?

And in Feng Shui 2 news, the Kaiju Patrol pop-up juncture has been unlocked and the next strech goal is adding Big Trouble in Little China and Road Warrior to Blowing Up the Movies.

It's a Lovecraft adventure game from the makers of Scratches and Asylum. Need I say more? Yes, I do, they've signed on S.T. Joshi as their consultant.

Why are you still reading this? You should have backed already.
