Come check out this week’s batch of crowdfunding and Kickstarter highlights–including RPGs and STLs!

Pax Illuminaten


Pax Illuminaten is a crunchy game that packs a lot of punch in a small box.

1776. Bavaria. You are an Areopagus, a disciple and founding member of the Bavarian Order of the Illuminati. Your charge: spread forbidden Enlightenment thinking into the highest reaches of the Holy Roman Empire, undermine its authority, and set the stage for revolution.

Spirit Fire


Spirit Fire is a non-linear, open-world board game system in which you explore unique fantasy realms on an introspective journey of discovery, wonder, and mystery. Your choices matter because you’re not following a story you ARE the story. There is no combat in Spirit Fire. It’s time to wield something more powerful than a sword: your mind, your heart, and your spirit.

Abyss of Hallucinations Collected Edition – Mörk Borg


Abyss of Hallucinations is an occult-inspired Mörk Borg setting built upon the nihilistic psychedelia of Aleister Crowley’s Book of Lies.  This campaign adds the third and final volume to the zine collection, and unifies the triad in a deluxe hardcover compilation, giving the Abyss the decadent glory it deserves!
