Disclaimer – I am friends with one of the authors of this Kickstarter, Jonathan M. Thompson.

When I first heard about this Kickstarter, I thought it would be so cool to play as Dinosaurs. Reading it more closely though it’s actually about playing as humans with Dinosaurs on the Earth.  The main setting is about how Dinosaurs have returned to modern day times, but there are several other alternative settings to use the rule sets with.

I have only used one Battlefield Press book in the past and that was the Gaslight: Victorian Fantasy Edition (OGL) – http://battlefieldpress.com/2014/02/26/gaslight-victorian-fantasy-2nd-edition-ogl/

I used it with the Sword And Sorcery (an imprint of White Wolf) version of Ravenloft – Masque of the Red Death (for Dungeons and Dragons 3.5). Gaslight was very light on setting and very heavy on additional rules, classes and the like so it was a good fit.

I mention that all because Dinosaur Protocol is made for the Savage Worlds ruleset – https://www.peginc.com/product-category/savage-worlds/

That means you can probably use Dinosaur Protocol with other Savage World settings or games (as long as rampaging Dinos fit the game).  Battlefield Press has a good history of making game books that fit in nicely with other games and rule systems.  I feel that gives you more value than buying a game that as rules that are unique to itself and has no crossover potential.  A lot of smaller RPG Publishers have had good success using open systems to make product for, like D6, D20(OGL), Fate, and Savage Worlds for example.

Currently as of this writing it’s $1,428 pledged of $2,850 goal and 26 days to go. That said there are plenty of stretch goals of additional adventures written for the setting and the final stretch goal is a PDF Setting book of Arthur Conan Doyle’s The Lost World.
