Kickstarter/Indiegogo of the week: Galaxies

I’ve used this point before but remains as true now as when Styne & Sondheim’s musical, Gypsy, debuted 60 years ago: You Gotta Get A Gimmick. In this particular case, the gimmick is a game that can be played in the dark. It’s not a completely unique gimmick, but the list of games that use it is exceptionally short. (I can only think of one off the top of my head, which was also created in Quebec interestingly enough)

One of the nice things about Galaxies, is that you don’t HAVE to play in the dark. You can, and doing so drastically improves both the theme and the experience, but it’s not required...

Kickstarter/Indiegogo of the week: Kingmaker Anniversary Edition

A few years ago, well before I started TheRatHole.ca, I had the pleasure of reviewing The Curse of the Crimson Throne hardcover collection of Pathfinder’s second Adventure Path.

They are taking everything from the six-part 2010 release and updating it all to the soon-to-be-released Second Edition ruleset. But that’s not all, last year Owlcat Games released a digital adaptation of Kingmaker which greatly expanded the already ambitious story.

Kickstarter/Indiegogo of the Week: Endless Realms- Tome of Shadows

Tome of Spirits is the first full-sized supplement for Endless Realms since their initial release set of the Core Rulebook and Creature Compendium (make sure to take a look at our reviews on both of them). Slated to be 200+ pages, the book will focus around the spirits of the different Realms.

The lore surrounding this game is ridiculously deep and well written. It took me probably double the time it normally does to read an RPG because I was just savouring every word. There is a sizable section of corrupt spirits in the Creature Compendium, and spirits in general, appear in essentially every section of the Core Rulebook in some way.

Tome of Spirits will expand on basically everything spirit related, from the different Realms, to cults and religions, to expanding on how the Corruption of...

Over the centuries, Hell has become a shadow of its former Glory.
