GamesWatch: Hillfolk Kickstarter

You may have seen that I have mixed feelings about Kickstarter projects in the past but this is one that has really piqued my interest. Robin D. Laws is a freelance author who has written a number of popular roleplaying games including the GUMSHOE system that powers the wonderful Trail of Cthulhu game.

This crowdfunding project he has kicked off is a story driven game that uses a new system called DramaSystem and will, thanks to an already achieved stretch goal, be published as an Open Licenced game. The Hillfolk game will set the players in an Iron Age setting were players will struggle against Raiders and the environment and against one another in a struggle to survive. I'm keeping my eyes on this one.

Update! - UK based Kickstarters will be available from October 31st 2012.
