Fall of Man Kickstarter

Just learned about this Kickstarter:

The look and sound of it reminds me alot of Rifts (and I mean that in a good way!), but with the Pathfinder system.  Hmm...  I've kept my Kickstarter participation to a minimum, and Warlords of the Apocalypse is still potential "vaporware" at this point, although I think Owen K. Stephens is honestly trying to get it out.  But this Kickstarter is tempting, plus it looks like there will be conversion notes for Castles & Crusades among other games.  This has spiked my interest!  The character classes sound pretty cool!  Asphalt Samurai!  Sweet! I may have to get in on this bandwagon!
Oh you can check out the Kickstarter HERE.



  1. Interesting. I recall seeing The Hunt, and have the Canite preview. I wasn't sold on the art, but the mechanics were solid. $30 is pretty steep for a pdf, though. I'll keep an eye on this...

    Thanks for the heads up on this!

  2. It looks interesting. But $30 is a lot for a PDF and a goal of $22,000 is *very* ambitious.

  3. Thanks for the comments everyone. I agree that $30 is pretty steep for a PDF, will have to watch this one a bit.
    Hmmmm now I want to dig out my Rifts books! LOL

  4. Doesn't look like this is going to fund. I haven't joined it at this point.

  5. For the record: Warlords of the Apocalypse never had a KIckstarter. It did have pre-orders, taken by Adamant Entertainment. Super Genius games then bought WotA off Adamant, and when I left SGG it was part of my severance. Rogue Genius Games (which is me) will give anyone who took part in that preorder a refund if they ask for it. We've only had a very few refund requests.
    As it happens, Samurai Sheepdog did finish the book, and we at Rogue Genius Games helped them produce it. You can get the pdf: http://www.opengamingstore.com/products/fall-of-man
    Or have it POD: http://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/151392/Fall-of-Man
    I am still working on Warlords of the Apocalypse, though I have never given a date for when it'll be finished (since I've never had a firm feel for when I'll be able to spare the time to work on it), and we've never taken any money for it (though we honor all the preorders Adamant took).
