A Mystery Adventure Inspired by Edgar Allan Poe for 5e

The title of this Kickstarter leaves little to the imagination but is in fact an RPG named Before The Stroke of Midnight, with The Black Ravens Compendium, as a level 9 adventure for 5E, thought is scalable.

Crack the Code

Your network has been compromised, but you're a team of hackers so it's off to work restoring the program! There' only so many commands before the network is corrupted and the program terminates, so you're going to have to be fast and accurate. To do so, you'll reveal command cards and use them to move data marbles to make a pattern. You'll all need the right code to win the game.

Is it funded? Yes

What’s the pledge to get a copy? $24 (about £19)

When does it end? November 22nd 2020

Where is it? Crack the Code over on Kickstarter


Orbital Dice: Click-Clack Custodians

In a departure from the usual dice we like to include in KS round ups where possible, we've got their custodians instead, with this Kickstarter from Orbital Dice. There's a number of different styles to choose from, and whilst it's fair to say there may be a cost for shipping (as it originates in Canada), there is an option for an STL file, so you can print your own!

Is it funded? Yes

What’s the pledge to get a copy? CA$20 (About £12 for a physical one, but STL files are available too)

When does it end? December 6 2020

Where is it? Protect your click-clacks over on Kickstarter


Rift Knights

Knights vs Demons, what's not to love? The knights must protect the elders, who in turn protect the seal, but during the winter solstice, the seal weakens to allow a few demons through - time, of course, for the sacred knights to step up and prevent them coming any further into our world. It's an asymmetrical game for 2-6 players.

Is it funded? Yes

What’s the pledge to get a copy? $50 (About £38)

When does it end? November 23rd 2020

Where is it? Protect the elders, and fend off the demons until dawn
