Insight Fantasy RPG is currently kickstarting. Made by fellow Nørwegian Even V. Røssland. A bit different to the fare we usually serve up at this blog, but who knows? Even writes:
“What the GM knows is not always the truth. Change the story as you play, and complete your quests in a way no one could have predicted.”
Guess that sounds like us, after all…
Couldn’t make WordPress talk to the Kickstarter embed right now, but there’s a video and everything over there. Stretch goals, I’m sure.
Reviewers say of the previous incarnation, The Insight RPG System:
Style: 5 (Excellent!)
Substance: 4 (Meaty)
“An interesting, simple universal RPG system that’s worth the intro price.”
GMSMagazine review video (YouTube)
“What I hope is gonna happen is somebody – please – approach the designer and have a Kickstarter campaign, to get it out. Because this is an absolutely brilliant RPG system, and it’s flexible enough that you’ll be able to use it for pretty much any game.”
Guess this is your lucky day, YouTube review person!
The game’s homepage and Facebook page
Esteban Osorio Gallardo has translated “A Trip to the Moon” into “Un viaje a la Luna”. This is a game I wrote back in 2007, when my son was 6 years old. Time flies, ladies and gentlemen; make the most of it.

If there’s one game I want you all to check out, it’s this one.
Itras By is a surrealistic game. It started out as a piece of automatic writing by one of the authors. Together they wrote back and forth, developing a setting along the way – a setting at times coherent, at times completely unhinged.
It is yours to play with. No, really: This book is made for you to build, rearrange, cut up, mutate and do what you want with it. It is, in fact, one of the specific exercises written in there.
This is my most-loved game. And I didn’t even write it myself.

José Carlos de Diego Guerrero has written a scenario using Archipelago. My Spanish isn’t very good, but the game seems to have an interesting take on scenario setup, with several decks of cards describing characters (Ada Lovelace, Robur el Conquistador), elements (the Babbage machine, the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen), locations (Hyde Park, Buckingham Palace), connections, motivations and destinies.
This looks like a very fun and interesting setup – check it out here!
Jason Morningstar contacted me a while back with the idea of revising Archipelago II. He’s done some great work on it, and we’ve tweaked it a little, removing stuff we didn’t use and adding things we liked.
You can download the latest version here!
Rafael Chandler has written an Archipelago hack called “A Grail Epoch”. It looks very, very cool.
Check it out here.
Richard Williams has designed a stand-alone game based on Archipelago II and Love in the Time of Seid. It uses a steampunkt setting, and has a lot of nifty little changes and additions to the basic rules. Looks cool!
Check it out on his web page!
We’re planning a hangout (video get-together) on Google Hangouts! I (Matthijs) will be talking about Archipelago, in a fairly free-flowing way. Discussion, design talk, free-for-all talk.
