Kickerstarter Barking: Demon Wars Reformation by R.A. & Brain Salvatore

Time to bark again for a kickstarter project. This one is already successful, but given the pedigree of the designers I would venture to look into it.

The game boosts to be Salvatore and son's take on old school game mechanics set in the world of R.A. Salvatore's "Demon Wars" novels which are really great in my opinion. The video is vague on what it means by "old school" but the in-play segments are like nothing I have personally seen before as they game seems to rely on percentile dice and poker chips. Stretch goals aren't all that impressive either as most of them have to do with additional artwork inside of things like adventures or extra materials.

Buy in is also a bit much with $50 being when a physical copy of the game is available. But once again I must bring up the designers and the influence R.A. has had on gaming and the fantasy genre over the years. Given his dislike of what has happened with the Mothership of Fantasy RPGs of late, I think it is worth giving him a chance.

Thoughts are welcome as I am always interested in what others think of my original works.

The stench of rotten fish, sweat, mildewed wood and the ocean rose up from the black waters of the harbor in a visible mist that hung over the free trade city of Wickend adding to the already strong reek of human filth and cheap ale. The setting sun, unable to pierce the vile mist, washed over the crumbling buildings that lined the twisting streets of the Old District. From open doors and windows came the sounds of life, true life, of men laughing and boasting, of women flirting and dealing in their trades. To an outsider, the Old Distr…

I am starting to see a theme evolving here ... and it wasn't even planned.  Enjoy, and feedback is always welcomed!

Magic Item - Arcane Gauntlet

Arcane Gauntlets are small devices of leather and copper fitted to the wearer's primary hand and feature a small, thin gem imbued with pure arcane energies affixed to the palm. As a standard action the wearer of an Arcane Gauntlet may release its energies up to four times in a single encounter safely, and up to eight times if the wearer is willing to endure the burning residual heat from sustained use of the device.  If an Arcane Gauntlet is used to its maximum effect (eight times) it is inoperable until such a time as its wearer takes a long rest.
