Pelgrane's Dracula Dossier adds DramaSystem stretch goal


Greetings, raiders -

As I bet many of you already know, Pelgrane Press now has another Kickstarter on the go, for the Dracula Dossier.  

A new edition of Stoker’s novel that tells the real story; and an improvised spy thriller campaign for Night's Black Agents RPG. Two Books. One Mission. Dracula is not a novel. It's the censored version of Bram Stoker's after-action report of the failed British Intelligence attempt to recruit a vampire in 1894. Kenneth Hite has restored the deleted sections, inserting annotations and clues left by three generations of MI6 analysts. This is Dracula Unredacted. Follow those clues to The Director’s Handbook, containing hundreds of encounters: shady NPCs, dangerous locations, conspiratorial nodes, and mysterious objects. Together they comprise The Dracula Dossier -- an epic improvised, collaborative campaign for Night’s Black Agents, our award-winning vampire spy thriller RPG. The mission: Hunt and kill Dracula now, once and for all, before Britain falls to him forever.

The campaign has been gorging itself on the lifeblood of backers and turning it into sweet, sweet stretch goals. Most recently funded: a DramaSystem series pitch! 

In PERVENIET CALIX, the main cast are the Dukes of Edom, tasked with the impossible -- harness a medieval vampire for the 21st century's shadow wars. Now rogue agents -- and your fellow Dukes -- are making the impossible even worse. This DramaSystem Series Pitch will be a separate PDF. It can be played as a standalone game, or in between sessions of your DRACULA DOSSIER campaign, setting your NIGHT'S BLACK AGENTS player-character heroes as the GM's screw-tighteners par excellence.

Feng Shui Action Movie Roleplaying Kickstarter now in progress


I'll keep this brief, esteemed Hillfolk backers, as most of you already know about this and a gratifying many are already on board.

Atlas Games and I are currently Kickstarting Feng Shui 2, a new super-charged edition of my much-loved 90s-era RPG of Hong Kong inspired action movie roleplaying. You don't need to run up a stream of bullets or dodge a horde of hopping vampires to find it; you need merely click here.

Hillfolk wins Indie RPG Awards


If you're not too tired of patting yourselves on the back, Hillfolk funders, I'm surprised and delighted to report that the game just won not one but two coveted Indie RPG Awards: Best Game and Best Support!
