Survive This!! Vigilante City

I'm way behind on blogging, due to real life stuff. Awhile back I failed to mention, that I recently received the books from a kickstarter I backed. Survive This!! Vigilante City
Survive This!! Vigilante City is a fun OSR product, that is a mixture of old school D&D mechanics, and some new innovations from more modern games (a little 5E, some Black Hack etc.). The thing that excites me the most is how it reminds me of Palladium's Heroes Unlimited RPG. I mean that in a good way, one of the best (most enjoyable) campaigns (of any system/genre) that I have ever GM'd was a Heroes Unlimited Campaign. While Palladium's system no longer meets my needs, the spirit of that game can easily be found in Vigilante City. Allowing for a more approachable system while still capturing the cool elements of enabling players to create a diverse range of vigilantes (heroes). 
I'm hoping to work this one into the play rotation, but we are still playing SWN, and have a Genefunk 2090 Playtest to do...so many games so little time.

GeneFunk 2090

Hope I'm not posting too much about kickstarters lately, but wow there are some cool ones out there.
This next one is NOT OSR, and is in fact for 5E! I know..I know..but it is right up my alley.
Imagine Shadowrun...but instead of elves, trolls, etc.. your band was of Moreaus...err sorry I mean genetically engineered mercenaries specialized in various forms of violence and mayhem!!! Sound cool? Then check out the GeneFunk 2090 Kickstarter! It has 9 days to go and has exceeded it's pledge goals! I've backed this one and can't wait to give it a go.


Above is a sampling of the different (13) bioengineered genomes you can choose from, and I have been told the core rules will contain rules allowing you to make up your own!

Sci Fi Sunday : StarSIEGE

How cool is this? Been a big fan of C&C since it came out, this is a new version of StarSiege (and free!), based off of Amazing Adventures. I wanted to like the original Starsiege, but it was just too different from the C&C core chassis for what my group and I were looking for. This one is much closer to my play style than the original. Looks like you will need the Amazing Adventures core rules and the companion to make full use of this supplement.  I've got a Stars Without Number Campaign going at the moment, so not sure when we will get a chance to test these out, but it is good to see the Troll Lords taking the Siege engine to the Stars!
