Masks of the Mummy Kings!
 
Coming Soon: Masks of the Mummy Kings

Hi friends! I am very close to releasing the stand-alone, expanded and revised version of my tomb-robbing adventure game Masks of the Mummy Kings. Originally published in +Epidiah Ravachol's Worlds Without Master (Issue 9!), I've polished up the rules a little bit and added a whole bunch of material that explicates the core playstyle, how to approach the game and examples of the game in action.

This is a cooperative game where you quickly build your Rogue character by choosing the two halves of the mask they wear; the group then delves into the Tomb to discover more treasures (and potentially new and more potent Masks). It's diceless, asks for creative narrative improvisation from all players, and is prep-neutral from the GM's perspective (that is, it works equally well if you load up on prep or run it all on the fly).

Right now, the PDF is available to backers of my Patreon. I'm in the process of proofing a 34-page booklet print version as well. Once that's all the set, patrons will get their rewards and then the whole thing will go out to the public.

My Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/ndpaoletta
Direct link to the post with the PDF: https://www.patreon.com/posts/masks-of-mummy-6043765

So, if this is something you're interested in and you want to check it right away, it's only $1/month away via backing my Patreon! Or wait until August (probably) and it'll be available for public consumption.

Big thanks to +Rachel Kahn for knocking the cover out of the park, and OF COURSE my gracious patrons who have supported the development of this project.

Hi folks! Well, we have one week left for the A Grandiose Disaster kickstarter. We easily met our funding and have hit two wonderful stretch goals. And we are closing in on our next stretch goals, Carol Johnson's Tremors based scenario. We have two other stretch goals after that, so if you want to see even more Disaster, please back now before it is too late. Thanks! https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/ndpaoletta/a-grandiose-disaster?ref=nav_search

Only you can be the 100th backer of a Grandiose Disaster. This is a limited time offer. As a bonus, back for $26 or more and we'll add Caitlynn Belle's Hatch Fever as a stretch goal! https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/ndpaoletta/a-grandiose-disaster

(I was going to write my own blurb, but +Nathan Paoletta says it so much better than I was going to).
 
Your end-of-week reminder that +Secretly Mike Young's A Grandiose Disaster is still rolling along (creating a channel of molten lava in its wake, of course)

You know we unlocked +Kirt Dankmyer's reality-tear Scenario.

You know we're only (7-10) backers away from unlocking +Caitlynn Belle's death plague Scenario.

But after that? We still have these to look forward to:

- Carol Johnson (Glorantha LARP, Runequest, Nights Black Agents) is bringing us Terror at Trinity - trapped underground with a nuclear terror!

- +Megan Pedersen (Time Cellist, Sparkle Baby, Greenlight) has gotten (too?) deep into research for a survival cannibalism Scenario - because you should have to decide who you're going to eat to survive

- Sandy Antunes (RPG.net, Miskatonic University, etc etc) takes us into the woods in Appalachian Werewolf! A group of teens goes camping and all seems well - until the wolves start howling. Play in tents indoors, or take the game camping with you!

All of these will get automatically added to the base $15 PDF+Scenarios pledge, and then there's options to add printed versions to the higher level rewards as well.

We're really excited about getting these into the world as part of this campaign, thanks for all the support so far and we look forward to unlocking more Scenarios over the next couple of weeks!

OK, we're on to Stretch Goal 2: +Caitlynn Belle's Hatch Fever!
"Hatch Fever was supposed to introduce a brief illness to the body that would help to fight off cancerous cells, then flush itself out of your system. Instead, it devoured people from the inside-out, liquefying their organs, thinning their blood, and burning off their skin. It made its way outside the compound, killing millions by the minute. Now, what's left? Just you and the other cancer-infected test subjects trying to make their way outside the lab. And then to what? What greener pastures lay ahead, around the rotting grass and choking weeds? Who knows, but you do know this - you may be doomed to die, but it sure as hell won't be here, and it sure as hell won't be now."
Caitlyn Belle co-wrote Singularity, a transhuman dating larp, as well as a bunch of other larps. She knows what she's doing and her scenario looks kick-ass. We've already made a significant start to funding her scenario, but as always, we need your help. Thanks to all who already supported us and if you don't know what I'm talking about, go here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/ndpaoletta/a-grandiose-disaster

As we head into the final week of the A Grandiose Disaster kickstarter, we get to have a party... a Donner Party.

The little charter flight over the Dubanina Mountains had always been one of Northern Lights Adventure Tours biggest selling points to its clients - beautiful views of the snow capped peaks and a shortcut that shaved hours off the beginnings of their arctic exploits. That is, until this time. This time everything that could go wrong, did. You're not sure if surviving the crash was a blessing or a curse.
Because it's cold.
There's nothing to eat.
And there's nobody coming to help you.

+Megan Pedersen's The Long Way Home promises to be an excellent scenario. And it isn't too late to make it happen.

Hi folks!  Just a note that we're nearly there to +Caitlynn Belle's scenario for A Grandiose Disaster.  Just a few more backers and we can all enjoy some Hatch Fever.  https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/ndpaoletta/a-grandiose-disaster

Special thanks to Sean Patrick Fannon for making A Grandiose Disaster his kickstarter pick of the day:  http://seanspickoftheday.com/2016/05/23/a-grandiose-disaster-larp-seans-kickstarter-pick-052316/
LARP games are a whole different kettle of fish for many roleplayers, but they can be some truly amazing experiences for all involved. A high degree of immersion, usually mixed with a larger player…
