The Story Engine, deck of endless prompts + book

The search function on mobile wasn't letting  me find it if a thread for this exists already, so please do send me the right direction if such already exists. Ran across this in a Facebook ad--getting a lot of KS-related ads right now all of a sudden, can't possibly imagine why lol--and this one really grabbed me. Looks like it could be a lot of fun for folks who enjoy the basic gimmick of it and are into creating adventure scenarios or writing or whatnot. I need to go back and look for the ages on it--if it's not all dirty-like seems like it could be a good writing resource for kiddos, too.

I backed his half a cat imaginary book. I enjoyed it.

Also good for him - had all his money ripped off at a con recently

Geh, that sucks.

 

I'm unfamiliar with him actually, so good to hear he's delivered enjoyable goods before.

I'm watching the video right now, and I'm REALLY wanting to back this.

I backed.

I mean the cash he had on hand, but that still sucks massively. We both worked for the same publisher at different points. We've met, though don't really know each other. He's done a ton of stuff.

I backed his Postcards from Impossible Worlds project.

 

My wife and I have both backed.  My wife is excited about this one.  I was going to back to have my own copy of the decks but she talked me out of it, for now.  (Besides, that's money that could be spent on Bones 5.)  I'm still in for the digital rewards.

All three expansions are unlocked!

 

Looks like he's cooking up some new stretch goals to finish the last couple days here out...

 

I'm debating jumping on up to the deck + 3 expacs option, as I don't-love-but-do-like the idea of the sci-fi and horror sets, but it's only another $5 to do it later via pledge manager, looks like*, so think I'll hold off and see how I'm feeling about them next month.

 

*And that's assuming I can't just change the whole reward later, I guess, dunno how the manager will work.

Okay, wow, this thing is still humming right along. And the 48-hour reminder doesn't go out until tonight, I guess? Is that still how that goes? I hadn't realized there was so much time left. Either way, it's shot right on up through several more stretch goals, including a couple of 18-card add-ons, one Lovecraftian and the other steampunk. There's a cyberpunk one ahead in 15k (CAD), I think it was, and two or three more after that over the next 50-75k. I'd say most of them are looking in play if it keeps moving like this. Main Deck can still grow another 5 cards too.

 

The add-ons are not a great value really at $5 for 18 cards, but I like the idea/feel of them. They should fit very nicely with the other sets, I imagine.

 

Thinking I'll bump on up to that deck + 3 option and ponder the add-ons from there.

Closing in on the 24-hour mark here, and it's all gravy. Everything's unlocked as far as add-ons and expacs go. The deck is up to 180 cards I believe it is, 3 expansions, and 8 add-on sets iirc. Not bad. I caved and upped for all those.

 

The digital value is what's truly unreal here. Digital copies of all that for a minimum of $14, I think it is. Spectacular.

Funded just shy of $300k. Great run there. Pledge manager will be open in the next week or so if you missed out.

 

See everybody in June or whenever.

It was at the last minute, but I pledged for it.

 

Though the core concept is now wholly original (there are random generators galore online), I like this particular execution.

      Deadlands Lost Colony is a roleplaying game setting for the Deadlands universe and uses the Savage Worlds Adventure Edition game system. It takes place in 2097, thirteen years after the Last War in Deadlands Hell on Earth. Hellstromme Industries created a “Tunnel” between Earth and a distant star system later called Faraway. Millions of colonists settled on asteroid mining stations and the only inhabitable planet, Banshee, before the Tunnel collapsed and left them stranded. Now the humans must fend for themselves against a rogue military, ruthless pirates, angry anouks, the rise of an evil alien presence, and worst of all, the arrival of the Reckoners—made flesh on Earth and exiled to Banshee!
