  9. We passed the 50% mark for Love's Labour's Liberated. I discuss that milestone and two RPG zines in our latest update: - POWERED by the DREAMR (by me). A Powered by the Apocalypse game in a zine in which you have the power to explore and control dreams. - Ascension: The Codex of Immortals. A 5e supplement that pays homage to Deities & Demigods. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/737521052/loves-labours-liberated-a-5e-rpg-zine/posts/2422746
  10. For this update, I discuss some of the poems and quotes that inspire me as I write for Love's Labour's Liberated. As well, in my continuing mission to create some zine community (zine-munity?), I look at:- Silver Swords: An RPG fanzine by Stronghold Press Games- Shards: Worldbuilding Zine - Quickstarter by Stephen Coffey (Written with dyslexics like me in mind)- The Isle of The Amazons - RPG Zine for #ZineQuest by Eric Bloat (Bloat Games)- The Playmakers by Epistolary Richard - Temple of the Blood Moth by Jacob Butcher https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/737521052/loves-labours-liberated-a-5e-rpg-zine/posts/2419636
  11. This is my personal project, POWERED by the DREAMR, a game open to dark nightmares. Because it's a zine, I don't have the space to share a proper setting but, in a future installment, I want to create a setting/adventure based around the dreams of madness that the Great Old Ones endure as the Dreamrs (PCs with the power to walk dreams) enter their slumbering chaos. *** POWERED by the DREAMR is a full Powered by the Apocalypse tabletop roleplaying game in a zine, and it’s live on Kickstarter. In POWERED by the DREAMR, you are a Dreamr who possesses limitless powers within dreams. Until you wake up, you travel between the subconscious of sleepers living out their dreams, searching out their secrets, or battling nightmares. Set in a dream state you and your friends collaborate on, this game maximizes the narrative rules to give each dream a surreal quality. As you navigate an ever-evolving environment of dream logic, your Moves will lead to success, reveal hidden truths, or unleash your character’s nightmares. Using a variant of the Powered by the Apocalypse phenomenon (originally seen in Apocalypse World, Monsterhearts 2, Dungeon World, and more), this game keeps dreams vibrant and varied via random questions that alter the fantasy or reveal a characters personal demons. You decide the dream objectives you must complete before the sleeper wakes. Will you combat a supernatural killer? Steal secrets? Defend the sleeper from dream stealers? Inspire a life altering idea for the sleeper? Live out your dream life? Or something completely your own? As a part of Kickstarter’s February initiative, #ZineQuest, this project is the debut solo tabletop roleplaying game by RPG journalist, Egg Embry (Knights of the Dinner Table, EN World (Hey!), Open Gaming Network, Tessera Guild). Making an RPG via Kickstarter is his dream manifest. With PDFs of the full game at just $5, or $12 for the print zine and PDF, you can share in his fantasy by checking out the POWERED by the DREAMR Kickstarter at: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects...-rpg-zinequest#WhatsYourDream #PoweredByTheDreamr #PbtA #ZineQuest #Kickstarter
  12. First time poster and I apologize I'm leading with a check-out-my-Kickstarter. I was not aware of bacisroleplaying.org until Sean_RDP invited me to become active and share my projects. Love's Labour's Liberated introduces the theme of February, love, into your 5e campaign. Part of Kickstarter’s RPG Zine Quest, this publication focuses on a romanticized view of Cavaliers, Enchanters, Magic Items, and more for the world's most popular roleplaying game. Each component is designed to be a hook that draws the player into the game utilizing character motivations. This zine will enhance the roleplaying flavor of the classes while offering chances for characters to buy-in to the setting and its challenges. Focusing on a new version of the fighter archetype, the Cavalier of Love, a 5e-realized Enchanter, and Magic Items with lovely story hooks, these rules expansions ramp up the quiet moments between combat. Each chapter will lead with a stanza of poetry by Leland Beauchamp. These pieces can standalone or be combined as an adventure hook. Through this zine, you’ll experience the creator’s love of roleplaying and 5e, and be able to share it with your table. Developed by longtime friends, novelist, John McGuire of The Dark That Follows, Hollow Empire, and the graphic novel, The Gilded Age, poet and gamer, Leland Beauchamp, and RPG journalist, Egg Embry of EN World (Hey!), Knights of the Dinner Table, Open Gaming Network, and the Tessera Guild, this book is the culmination of years of their experiences with ROLE-playing over ROLL-playing. Available to backers as a $5 PDF or $12 print zine including the PDF, the campaign offers bonuses like the option to declare your love in the zine, create love-based magic items, or even handwritten poems. The romanticized virtues of chivalry, the mystical nature of enchantment, magic love potions, and the passion of poetry all await you in Love's Labour's Liberated: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects...-a-5e-rpg-zine Love's Labour's Liberated for 5e by John McGuire, Leland Beauchamp, and Egg Embry. An RPG zine focusing on romance and love in fantasy is available during Kickstarter’s Zine Quest. #LoveAtTheGamingTable #D&D #5e #ZineQuest #Kickstarter
