Kickstarter - Powered by GURPS: Dungeon Fantasy Monsters 2 & Game Reprint

I like GURPS. Well, I love the sourcebooks and used to run some GURPS back in my college days. It just seemed a bit heavy for my gaming tastes.

Now, I really like the GURPS: Dungeon Fantasy boxed set. The rules focus on what I focus on - fantasy gaming - and without the need to cover every genre the rules seem more approachable. I could see myself running this. I certainly could see myself playing it.

The Powered by GURPS: Dungeon Fantasy Monsters 2 & Game Reprint Kickstarter puts the relatively small print run associated with the original Dungeon Fantasy Kickstarter back in print. More copies - more circulation - more players - more support material. Isn't that how it works?
With your support, we're going to bring back the Dungeon Fantasy Roleplaying Game with a second printing and, more importantly, expand the line with a new book: Dungeon Fantasy Monsters 2! This companion to Dungeon Fantasy Monsters introduces even more foes to the dungeon, giving the GM new tools to use when designing adventures and the players more beasties to slay and loot.   
If you already have the Dungeon Fantasy boxed set, the Monsters 2 book is 20 bucks in print plus PDF.

If you need the Dungeon Fantasy boxed set (along with Monsters 2), print plus PDF is 95 bucks.

Dungeon Fantasy is a really sweet ruleset :)

I do not back every Kickstarter I highlight as my wallet's contents are not limitless but I do find all highlighted Kickstarters interesting for one or more reasons - Erik Tenkar

  1. I should note, because self-interest, that there are TWO Dungeon Fantasy RPG products on Kickstarter right now, and they're being mutually supported by Gaming Ballistic and Steve Jackson Games.

    The Citadel at Norðvorn (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/gamingballistic/the-citadel-at-norvorn) funded several days ago and is now in the process of cracking stretch goals.

    Not only that, but the DFM2 and C@N projects have mutually-reinforcing goals.

    When Citadel hit $16,000 not only did Nordvorn boost to 112 pages, DFM2 upgraded the dice inside the box.

    If Citadel hits $18,000 (possibly today!) DFM2 puts a game notebook in each box.

    If DFM2 hits $45,000 ($1050 to go, with a game steadily doing over $1,000 per day) then SJG will include an entirely new RPG supplement, Fantastic Dungeon Grappling, in *each copy of the reprint of the Box Set*.

    That's not even talking about the DFM2 stretch goal at $48K and $60K for more pages in the Monsters book itself, and the offset print run for Nordvorn at $25,000, which would see the game on store shelves as well as available through Warehouse 23 and Gaming Ballistic's website.

    The level of cooperation here might be unprecedented (might not; it's certainly unusual). My data - which I've shared over on RPG.net - shows at at least on MY end, the mutual support has been effective and shows the strength of the line.

    And I've got at least two more adventures - true adventures, not settings - being written right now.

    It's a great time to be involved in the Dungeon Fantasy RPG.
