I've been looking forward to this since I heard of it.
 
And here's the rough-complete manuscript for the free version of Godbound, beta 1.0. It still needs editing and some fill text here and there, but this should be sufficient to get a GM and group going with a campaign of demi-divine heroics.

I've got about three weeks left to polish it and get my art workflow pipeline in order, as the Kickstart's due to launch on March 1st. The version attached here is the free version that everyone will be able to eventually download, but KS backers will get a deluxe version with another 40 pages of content, on much the same model as Stars Without Number.

looks standalone, along the lines of what he's done with Stars Without Number

From Facebook, a Kickstarter project owner posted:

When you see that a customer who backed your Kickstarter has 2,977 backed.

That's more than twenty times what I've backed.

It's a single digit multiplier for me. 8(

I know three people near 1,000 projects (above and below).  And not at the dollar level.

Well hot damn

The Dungeon Architect Cards were really cool, these should be even more useful to me. Kickstarter project opens February 15, next Monday.
So, on Monday, February 15th, we will be launching the World Architect Cards Kickstarter. This is a deck of cards designed to create randomly generated overworld maps for role-playing games, narrative building, map ideas, group creative sessions, etc. The initial deck will include 53 cards plus ...

Look what I made for lunch...

Though I think I might not try to eat it. It would probably end poorly for me.

I found it curious that you asked about that bit, when that's almost the only thing that doesn't change from the base bloodline.

I would have expected "why did you pick those spells?", "why did you pick those feats?", or "why did you pick those bloodline powers?" because they look at what actually has changed.

Of the 15, 14 of them have an alternative to 'energy damage' in their breath weapon. The one exception? Red dragon... and the only reason it doesn't have a little star next to Breath Weapon in the summary table is that the change is big enough to warrant its own bloodline power.

From the table:

DM: You find an elven leaf dagger.

Wiz: Cool, anyone else want it? No? Yoink

[... time passes ...]

Fighting undead, need a magic weapon, Wiz uses the dagger.

DM: "The magic leaf dagger hits the shadow creature, roll damage."

Wiz: "d4+1... 5 points."

Elven cleric: "Clearly this leaf dagger of my people strikes true because it is a creation of life, and is the very antithesis of death."

DM: "... I like it. 6 points of damage, it's +1, +2 vs. undead, and it's made of a magically hardened leaf."

Say, +Jason Paul McCartan, if it's made of a magically hardened leaf, will it be immune to rust attacks?

Immune to rust, but vulnerable to caterpillars.

Looks uncomfortable

Strangely, I thought that first about having to walk around with the costume, the weight hanging in front of him and having to avoid slamming into people.

Help them, Kicksnarker, you're their only hope

Actually, I'm not sure how much hope they really have, they've got about 66 hours left to fund and they're 80% of the way there... the final kick could see them over the finish line, but it seems unlikely at this point.

I'm trying to see why, though. I see some small aspects of the writing that could be better (and editing could have caught an "its -> it's" mistake), and as a whole it doesn't really grab but, but nothing jumps out at me as a warning flag. They're not even FC0B.
