Hi all, we are always looking for playtesters as we revamp our Cosmothea Blended-genre RPG and expand our Cosmoverse Campaign Setting! We're on our 5th major revamp and expansion of the setting and run PlayByPost adventures on QTGames.com.

We decided to start with publishing anthologies as we work on the revamp! What do cowboys and zombies, ancient stargates, dwarven space marines, and magic-powered hover bikes have in common? The Cosmoverse!

We've got Ed Greenwood, Steven Schend, Darrin Drader and other great authors and fantastic artists on board! Our anthology Kickstarter is up and running and we're at 47% with 20 days left!

Arcane Synthesis: A Blended-Genre Anthology
Eight tales blending magic, mystery, advanced technology, superheroes and horror, set within the vast, blended-genre Cosmoverse.
 
Even if you just want to see some great art or more on the setting, check it out. Thanks! http://kck.st/1a3F2GC

Earthdawn 4th Edition

 

http://www.kickstart...awn-4th-edition

 

My favourite system, it is like D&D except it makes sense (In this world, there is a perfectly good reason to have dungeons with treasures and monsters,... and so on)

 

The Earthdawn Franchise has been a bit of a mess, with Fasa abandoning it, RedBrick and another company acquiring it and taking it into different directions, then Fasa re-acquiring it recently.

 

The Earthdawn setting is a precursor to the more well-known Shadowrun setting.

"The Hunted: A Game of Medieval Magic, Mischief and Mayhem"

"The Hunted is a game of medieval magic, mischief and mayhem. The society in which the game takes place is one of great superstition. Many believe in omens, portents and the supernatural. In this culture witches are real, monsters lurk in the night and what’s scariest of all is that they might be your friends, neighbors, or even family.The church is constantly battling the encroaching heretics, keeping the seed of corruption from spreading within their communities. Those who are found to be against the church are killed for their crimes.

This is where our “heroes” come in. They have been called by a mysterious Dark Benefactor. It gives them power and leaves them with one purpose: Chaos. They are to personally see to the downfall of the three authority figures, The Lord of the Land, the Priest, and the Watch Captain. They are to remove these people from power by any means necessary. The characters must maintain the façade of living normal lives while working against the community. This will not be an easy task, however. The player characters must build their strength and power by causing mayhem in the town, if they hope to stand any chance against those who would stop them.

The authorities will not take kindly to this however, and do everything in their power to stop the impending chaos. The town will become more paranoid, neighbor turning on neighbor, brother turning on brother. Homes will be searched, blood will be shed, and people will be burned in an attempt to root out the heresy. The players’ actions will decide who will be the hunter and who will be… The Hunted." $595 of $2,000 goal

https://www.kickstar...-mischief-and-m

It's a bit of an underdog but it sounds interesting enough, a little bit of everything in that you cooperate while somewhat compete to survive.

Not to Hijack the thread but I believe this following post doesn't warrant a thread dedicated to itself.

I do believe it complements this thread though but apologies if not.

 

Creature Caster: First Wave - 1 day Left - 951% funded.
These "miniatures" are actually huge... standing 7+ inches.

Not sure how people view them on here as I am just getting into the PnP side of the RP world but I would imagine them as supreme beings, god-like demons, deities, manifestations of the gods or their handmaidens,etc.

This looks kind of neat. Might be handy for when you need to whip up a sort of fleshed out random NPC on the fly during a game, or a good way to brainstorm a new PC.
