Backstory Cards blend your characters and setting concept into an intriguing set of relationships and history. It’s tailor-made for games where the player-characters already know each other—from fantasy adventurers to star marines, from supernatural beings who share the same city to global-hopping troubleshooters.
The campaign for Backstory Cards Vol.2 aims to produce two more printed decks to add to your writing/game-running/creative arsenal!
This Kickstarter is to fund to the first edition printing of Quester Party: A hyrbid cooperative fantasy card game for 1-6 players. Check out Tiger Ghost.com for more info. This has been a labor of love and has come a long way since the first cards were hand drawn on card stock with colored pencils. Now after many late nights of grinding away on design the final prototype has been tested and with your backing, the first edition of Quester Party will become a reality.
I have already created all the art, designed the cards, box and team Tiger Ghost crew has game tested along the way. All I need now is your support. Those who back this project in one of the two reward categories will receive a special Quester included that will not be in the future editions of the game.
Cthulhu: The Great Old One is an exciting quick-play set collection game with “take that” cards and alternate in-game win AND lose conditions. More than that, Cthulhu:TGOO is a tribute to the writings of 1920′s horror author Howard Phillips Lovecraft, and to some of those who have kept his works not only alive but thriving in our modern culture. Each card is taken directly from the writings of Lovecraft, calling to mind the settings and events from his varied tales.
This new Deluxe Edition evolves gameplay and mechanics from the original edition of the game, adding in “Sign” cards which can negate the effects of Horror cards, as well as making the flow of play much more smooth, and the experiences more varied between each playthrough session. With the new poker-sized cards and drawing system, hands are easy to manage and fun to wield against your opponents.

With this special week-long Kickstarter we are trying to finish up these three mini-adventures to expand on the events that will take place in beginning with Folio #20. We also hope that if you are simply looking for some cool encounters for characters level 10+, these adventures will fill that void.
What are in the mini-adventures? Each mini-adventure is roughly 10 encounter points in a scenario that blends in with the main Folio adventure it corresponds to (in this case, the pre-adventure for the beginning of The Curse of Roslof Keep super-campaign). This includes maps, and statistics in both classic AD&D and 5th Edition D&D. However, these can also easily work as stand alone encounters for other ongoing campaigns. They are designed for 4-6 characters from levels 10+.
