About this project

 

 

 

Welcome to the Infinity RPG Kickstarter, help us fund an RPG based on the massive Infinity skirmish miniatures game!

dbea8e38e2e190414a4d98fc62bcaa1c_origina

The Infinity universe was launched by Corvus Belli as a hugely-popular tabletop skirmish game in which sci-fi themed miniatures simulated futuristic battles across the alien battlefronts of Paradiso and the internecine conflicts of the Human Sphere. Before there was a skirmish game, though, there was an RPG: Infinity started life as a homemade RPG setting for the early roleplaying adventures of Corvus Belli founders Alberto, Carlos, Fernando, and Gutier. We've been playtesting the Infinity RPG with hundreds of people for the last 9 months, working hard to recapture the excitement of those first sessions and ensure that the feel of the Infinity universe will be captured in your own campaign!

This Kickstarter has funded the production of a beautiful full colour, hardback 368 page core rulebook for the roleplaying game. It will be sent out in PDF in December and the printed books in February 2016. We are also going to fund Faction supplements, campaign, amazing geomorphic tiles, custom dice, accessories, upgrades to increase the content in certain books and much more.

In the twisted jungles of Paradiso, humanity fights for its survival. The fierce, alien warriors of the Combined Army have poured through the Acheron Gate, descending upon the emerald jungles of the newest colonial world in a seemingly unstoppable torrent. The bestial Morat pound the Paradiso Front, where brave men and women fight ceaselessly to maintain a desperate defensive line which the sly Shasvastii penetrate with devastating ease. In the star-swept skies above, the collected might of humanity’s armadas maintain a life-or-death blockade to cut off an endless horde of alien reinforcements. And if any of humanity’s fractious forces should falter, then all may be lost…

But beyond that terrifying holding action, the intrigues and adventures of the Human Sphere spin on. Space pirates cruise through the shattered planetoids of Human Edge. Scientist adventurers delve the oceans of Varuna. Merchant guilds scheme amidst the scourging sands of Bourak. From Yutang, the Emperor gazes forth from an uneasy throne. Titanic war machines stride across the icy plains of Svalarheima. Byzantine hypercorps struggle for dominance amidst the chrome towers of Neoterra.

For the last ten years, players have tested their mettle upon the battlefields of the Human Sphere in Corvus Belli’s hugely-popular Infinity skirmish game. Now you can expand your adventures, diving deep into the amazing, never-before-seen depths of the Infinity universe with the ultimate science fiction roleplaying game.

I backed this.

 

Their Mutant Chronicles game turned out great and this shares a system with it.

 

Just keep in mind while their products have been excellent they have been chronically behind schedule.

I'm in at the print and PDF master.

I second werk on the behind schedule. I was in on their achtung and while the stuff will come out and look great you will need to be patient. I'm still waiting on Achtung stuff.

 

 

The system is actually pretty good. I had misgivings on it for Mutant Chronicles but now that I've seen and played it I enjoy the system.

Set it on reminder.  In general, I have a hard time pledging for RPGs these days.  Everything I've pledged for in the past ended up being retail price, and everything unlocked was released at retail too.  Could have saved 20% or more by waiting.

If the pattern holds from previous ones, the individual books are pretty close to retail. But things like pdf master, print master and subscription are fairly solid discounts.

Surprisingly I am not all that into the miniatures. I am currently in for the pdf of the core rule book but may level up if the Ares Mythologic Indiegogo does not fund. I am mainly in this one for the universe fluff as I am sucker for that kind of stuff.

That's been the thing holding me back from the Infinity wargame (well, that and a lack of existing players). I think they're solid miniatures, but the style just seems "meh" to me.  Maybe a little too generic or too far-future or something; I can't quite put my finger on it.

There are actually some of the regular stuff that I really like, the two sets that I have gotten I got because of the minis. But there are some that are, like you said, too generic. I think that is my problem with the ones for the Kickstarter. There is nothing about them that makes them special in my mind. It is a little disappointing as I anticipated going in for just the minis as I am not sure if I will actually play the game. But as I play the war game and am a sucker for fluff, I am in for at least the pdf's.

Kind of surprised no one else has posted this. Modiphius is putting out the Infinity RPG in cooperation with Corvus Belli:

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/modiphius/corvus-bellis-infinity-roleplaying-game

Love the figures and art and played a little of the skirmish game. I like what I've seen of the setting so far and have thought it would make a good RPG. I was going to do it with Savage Worlds but I guess I'll wait and see how the 2D20 system works out now.

Yep, this is what I've found as well, I think I have generally lost money by pledging for RPG's on Kickstarter. Even stuff that seemed like a great deal, like the Chained Coffin box set for DCC for $30, turned out to have a lot higher shipping than I had thought (another $30) - I could have ordered this product today from NKG for $35, plus $15 shipping. That being said, I was generally happy with the Modiphius project Achtung Cthulhu, where I pledged for only the in print core books at a decent price, and then got free PDF's of a gazillion unlocked supplements. So depending how highly you value PDF's, those might make it worth it for Infinity as well.

I've found that with a lot of KSers. With Modiphius you can easily see what their stuff is going for. Right now it seams to be about a wash as the cost of the single core books are less then KSer price (mutant chronicles was $65 and sells for $50 at FRP) but the extra bonus items make up for that.

 

So with infinity the $65 gets you a LE mini, Core book and players guide. Assuming you could buy the minis post KSer, which you won't, you'll find those would probably be $8, core book $50 and players book $15 based off of how their other stuff is currently priced. And I'm sure more things will be added to the base pledge too.

 

Their all in PDF pledge is a great deal and so is the all in print (if you can afford to spend that much) as you'll get each pdf for about $10.

 

Hmm I like a couple of the minis... maybe a couple of cherry-picked add-ons only here... reminder set.

I'll be happy to get add on minis for you to save on shipping.

      About
      The concept for Mother of Dragons was born a few years ago.
      I still recall seeing the beautiful illustration made by Stéphane Wootha Richard posted on his Facebook profile and I fell in love with her immediately – I knew immediately that I wanted to bring her to life in miniature form.
      Fortunately, Stéphane was also very excited about the idea of a collaboration.
      We were inspired and driven to start working on the project that we both felt so passionate about and now, with much pride we can finally share this project with you all.

      What you see here required 2 years of committed development, during which time, our team has created and implemented many variants until we made of it a full range, indeed in addition to the varied scale of the main subject , you will find unique versions such as the bust or the lovely "super deformed" miniature. In fact, this is the characteristic of all of our Kickstarter campaigns — we always enjoy experimenting with new products and offering you something you've never seen before.
      Every successful kickstarter campaign enable us to share our dreams with the most supportive community in the world.

      In Mother of Dragons you will find exciting new figures as well as numerous artefacts (artefacts? – I hear you say. Exactly)! Be ready for an ancient Dragon Jar, or a real dragon’s tooth. One thing is certain. They will not be the only exclusives to catch your attention.

      Now with your continued help and support; it’s time to bring this project to life!
      So why support this project?
      Well, first because you’re a hobbyist and a modeller and you can’t wait to lay your hands on a new figure.
      Second, because the Mother of Dragons will also appeal to your collector’s side; she will be the “queen” of your showcase, no matter the scale, you choose.
      Apart from the main subject of this campaign, as usual, we’re offering great deals, rewards, add-ons and freebies, indeed Kabuki Studio places great importance to Kickstarter and for this reason the benefits/conditions offered will never be seen again outside the campaign, not even in the pledge manager/late backer's option.

      KICKSTARTER EXCLUSIVE!
       
       
      What is this, and how does it work I hear you say?
      Well it’s simple. At some point during the campaign we will show some super-secret stuff that isn’t quite ready yet. You, as Kickstarter backers will have the exclusive first chance to grab some of this cool stuff.

      Any funds gathered from this boost will be added to the total campaign fund and will also go towards unlocking goodies for the qualifying pledges
       
       
      It’s simple, we need your support in order to fund the project and unlock all the amazing items we’ve designed!
      To donate, select a pledge amount and reward on either the right-hand side of a project page or after clicking the “Back this project” button and selecting “Continue”. From here you’ll be taken to a page where you can continue as a guest, or login if you already have an account.
      If you would like to continue as a guest, just enter your email address and select “Continue as Guest”.
      Next, fill in your payment details and take a minute to review your pledge details. When you’re ready, just click the green “Pledge” button and the job is done! Easy, isn’t it?

      During the campaign, thanks to your help, we will unlock several new rewards so you may want to review your current pledge, well how do you do that? To change your pledge amount, visit the project page and click the “Manage your pledge" button that appears next to your pledge amount and then select "Change your pledge" on the following page.
      From here, you’ll be able to adjust your pledge amount or choose a new reward tier you'd like to pledge for and your pledge amount will update automatically.
      If you don't want to receive a reward, select "Make a pledge without a reward" and enter your new pledge amount. Alternatively, you may change your pledge amount within the reward tier modal.

      Note: you are not adding to your existing pledge; the amount you enter will be the total amount collected if the project is successfully funded.
      Everything will be dispatched from Roma (Italy).
      You don’t have to be worried about customs tax because we’ll provide a special invoice for that purpose.
      All the pledges will be posted through DHL Express and the delivery time is brutally fast!
      18-24 hours for Europe
      2-3 days for rest of the world (customs clearance included)
      So even the delivery time is a “problem solved”.
      Average costs:
      up to 1kg to Europe 14.50 Euro
      up to 1kg to USA/Canada 19.50 Euro
      up to 1kg to Asia 31.50 Euro
      up to 1kg to Australia/South America 38.50 Euro
      We removed “Poste Italiane” from the carriers choice because the price difference is almost zero and the reliability of that carrier is particularly low, that means you could save 3 or 4 euro from shipping cost, but have great delays in your delivery or pay more in custom taxes, or even have the parcel lost.

      About
      Many years ago, I accidentally started a story about a man who accidentally started a war, and that was a wild ride to the end, or at least, to what I thought was the end. Until I accidentally started a short story sequel that became a novel that made it clear that if we're going to start a war, we should at least see it through to the conclusion of its opening stages.
      Which is where this book comes in.
      Some Things Transcend is the second book in the Princes' Game series, which picks up directly where Book 1, Even the Wingless, leaves off. This is a six-book series, and only Book 1 has a paperback or audio edition. It's time to change that.
      But wait! You say. I'm one of your fans, but I don't know this series. Why should I contribute to this? And lo, I say to you: the Princes' Game series interweaves with most of the other "modern" Peltedverse novels. Don't believe me? Have a look at this sketch of a timeline, where the stories of Reese and Hirianthial are in green, and the events of Princes' Game in red:
      Even if epic war stories with violence, "adult situations," headgames, crazy redemption arcs, alcohol and drugs, revolts and revolutions, more crazy redemption arcs, and moral, ethical, and philosophical discussions are not your cup of tea, the events of the PG series will inform future series in the Peltedverse, which I am already at work on!
      But wait AGAIN! You say. What if I've never read any of your work at all! And then I would say to you, "You can start with the free novel Earthrise" if you want a space opera romp in a universe populated with friendly aliens, fuzzy critters, space elves, and humans all working together, or you can start with the novel Mindtouch if you want a gentle "forever friendship" story of college students coming of age, or you can leap right into the R-rated, HBO-compatible Princes' Game series with Even the Wingless. Because epic war stories with violence, "adult situations," headgames, crazy redemption arcs, alcohol and drugs, revolts and revolutions, more crazy redemption arcs, and moral, ethical, and philosophical discussions!
      But wait a THIRD time! I'm not into HBO-compatible anything! Or I don't like difficult stories without preparation! Don't worry, I've got you covered. I have a set of summaries of the entire series so you can read "ahead" and know what to prepare yourself for. (It's full of spoilers, but that's the point!) Go pick it up! Or don't, if you hate spoilers and prefer surprises!
      Stretch Goals
      So, some stretch goals! Just in case, even though this is only a week!  
      $750 - Are you tired of bookmarks yet? I hope you're not tired of bookmarks yet! At $750, everyone who gets a physical reward will receive one! You need more bookmarks!   $1000 - I will write a short story about Vasiht'h telling Sehvi about his experiences during the events of Dreamhealers 5, "Family"! You know you want more Vasiht'h and Sehvi time. Everyone will receive an e-copy! $1500 - Wait, another short? Yes, absolutely! This one will be a vignette, with Jahir's POV of acquiring the jackal chest and amulet rampant and communicating with 'the ambassador' during the events of Wingless. Everyone will receive an e-copy! Over $1500 - I will wiggle a lot! And then tuck that money away to pay for the audiobook, which will probably cost about $3000. No, I am not expecting you all to hit $3000 in a week. I love y'all but please, buy groceries and stuff. <3 But Jaguar! You say. Why are your stretch goals so modest! Why don't you do Chatcaava plushes! We would totally be on board with Chatcaava plushes! 
      Because, dear backers, I don't want to fall down on this job for you, and that means humble goals. *bows* I admit Chatcaava plushes would be adorbs though. 
      But Jaguar, AGAIN! What if we want more vignettes or shorts!? 
      I'm not opposed to this idea. Tell me what you're interested in seeing. >.>
      Oh, and before I forget, the original for the Collector Level:
      Risks and challenges
      As much as possible I've streamlined this one so it takes very little by way of work. I've gotten very good at packing and shipping things!
      I think the biggest risks are:
      1. I get hyper and start throwing in prizes and things that I shouldn't because I like running myself to ragged shreds doing stuff;
      2. I get too perfectionist about the things and fuss them to death over millimeter differences in whitespace only I am going to care about.
      I think I'll be able to handle #2 since I've done OVER NINE THOUSAND of these Kickstarters. It's #1 you all are going to have to help me with. Sit on me if I start gibbering about something that sounds impossible, please?
