Dungeon Fantasy RPG Goodness at Kickstarter

There’s more DFRPG stuff going on at Kickstarter than I would have dreamt after the disappointing news about the discontinuation of the line last year.

First off, Steve Jackson game is not only raising money for reprinting the boxed set, but also for making a second Monsters volume. While this is still in the same weight class as the Monsters book from the boxed set (a bit underweight actually, but there are stretch goals) it has one big advantage: Actually good full-colour illustrations. As noted in my review of the matter the art in the first Monsters book was one of the big letdowns of an otherwise excellent effort at an all-in-one boxed set. The art samples on the kickstarter page show that SJGames is doing its best to remedy that. Be sure to back this book, which is not scheduled for regular distribution!

Another – not quite as surprising – kickstarter is Douglas H. Cole’s The Citadel at Norðvorn, which is going to remedy another short-coming of the DFRPG line, namely that there’s no canon setting. Taking place in the same world as Cole’s excellent Lost Hall of Judgment I’m having high hopes for this. Cole has shown he knows what you need to make a setting interesting. The only reason not to back this one is if you really don’t like Norse-inspired fantasy. And even then you might make an exception.
