Kickstarter – Epic Hero and Villain Feat Cards

The creator of this project contacted me directly and asked me to have a look at his Epic Hero and Villain Feat Cards Kickstarter.

I’ve seen this sort of card gimmick in the past used by games like Torg and also recently Savage Worlds; the idea is that by playing a card you can take advantage of a bad situation and free yourself from the tyranny of poor dice rolling.  I do like systems like this as it gives the players a chance to shine and succeed at critical moments.

Would I back it?  Possibly if I was going back to playing a game like DnD where it might be useful but recently I’m playing more indie stuff or Call Of Cthulhu where a large bonus to a d20 roll may be aweseome but peanuts to a percentile system.

The good news is that the project is going to be backed as it has achieved it’s funding goal and it should be delivered in June or so.

I’ll mention that like other projects I have mentioned in the blog, I haven’t benefited in any shape or form by this post.  I just wanted to bring it to everyone’s attention as mentioned in my last post.

About the Author

I've been gaming on and off since about 1989 and during that period have played with numerous game systems. I'm fluent in a few, have a basic understanding of quite a few more and can get by in others. Somewhere along the way I found time to be a playtester, contribute to an unpublished game supplement and be associated with another gaming magazine written by far more talented people than I. This lead to one infamous article being written in which I followed the letter of the adventure and torched the parties river barge. I'm also listed on http://rpggeek.com as a game designer.
