I just learned about the Containment Kickstarter a few minutes ago. I was actually just looking for something on the Rogue Games website, when I noticed that they recently started a Kickstarter project for “Containment – espionage roleplaying during the Cold War”. The game will come in a boxed set (Yay!) and contain the rulebook, a gamemaster’s book, two adventures and all the dice needed to play. Since Rogue Games usually utilizes their 12° system, I guess it will be two d12.
The Kickstarter will end in 27 days from now and it’s still far away from its $8000 goal. So if you are interested in Cold war espionage games, why don’t you check out the Kickstarter project page?
I have no idea how I could have missed this, but Jeremy Keller actually recorded a short video that gives an overview of how the dice mechanics of Technoir work. If you’re interested in this game, you should definitely check the video out.
By the way, the Kickstarter hasn’t reached its next goal of $20,000 yet. This time Jeremy is looking for help. People are asked to contribute their idea what the next additional Player’s Guide should be about. The person who comes up with the idea that gets chosen in the end will be credited in the PDF and has the chance to help Jeremy brainstorming new training programs, objects, etc.!
It seems more and more small-press publishers are jumping on the Kickstarter bandwagon. Jeff Mechlinski is a game designer from Batltimore, who is currently raising funds for his game “Age Past” on Kickstarter. In honor of free RPG day he also released a late beta PDF for free, so that you can have a first look at what the final Age Past book will look like. And even though Jeff is still raising money to pay for more art, Age Past already looks gorgeous.
The rules seem to be a bit too crunchy for my tastes, but that shouldn’t keep you from checking out this game. Currently 9 people have backed the project and there are still 41 days to raise the $3,200 Jeff has set as goal. If you’re into fantasy RPGs, you might want to have a look!
