Sinful Playing Cards

Recommended Posts

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/fiftytwo-games/sinful-playing-cards/description

 

 

Standard and Tarot playing cards from artist Darryl Petrucci. This is a collection of art, originally made for the game SINS, which has been highly praised for its immersive world building. The artwork is now available as a standard deck of cards (63x88mm) and as a tarot deck of cards (70x120mm). Each card has unique art and with its beautiful and simplistic design, the art is the center of attention!

 

The artwork is based upon the deadly sins, portrayed by different characters. Throughout the 52 standard cards or 22 tarot cards, you'll find different interpretations of Lust, Gluttony, Wrath, Envy, Greed and Sloth. Spirit, Beast and Spectral creatures embody each card to tell their own story. 

 

 

Anybody seen this/know anything about it? I like the art for the cards but never heard of the company and all.

May've got got on this one. Same guy has apparently run at least three projects in the last few months--this, a SINS card game, and a game called Unlikely Heroes--each under a different account/company name but linking back to variations on the name Jakob Lindborg. Don't have anything  concrete yet, but those first two projects have gone silent and it's looking not-good, anyway. Be wary if you run across that name, anyway, before we find some sort of resolution on this.

 

Kinda bummed, I was being really optimistic here lol.

Interesting. You made me curious, and I started looking at it myself, and found a whole bunch of related FB pages for these three, and another one called Gears, which just finished it's KS on July 31st. 

The webpages for all of these games look very similar, and have the same contact address:

 

CONTACT

Gøngehusvej 106
2950 Vedbæk
Denmark

 

 

That address links back to a company called Nordic Innovators, who's webpage says this:

We collaborate with both companies, research institutions and public institutions, and help secure funding for their research and development projects.

So after reading various things on that Nordic Innovators page, it appears it's a legit company. 

That makes me think there are two possible scenarios here:

1. These are all legit projects, and the company is merely handling the funding, expecting the actual project creators to take over communications after funding. The reason they're all linked back to the same person is that person is the consultant in charge of these types of projects. 

2. The company doesn't know someone is using their address. 

If I were you, I'd reach out to them, and ask.  If it's legit, I don't think it would be harmful to ask.  If it isn't legit, they're probably not going to be too happy about someone using their address, which will be a lot easier to deal with now, rather than later. 

Of course, there is the third possibility that a principal in the company is doing this on the side, and he could still flake out.  I would hope, however, that someone involved with what appears to be a decently sized company that specializes in project consulting would be competent enough to run a Kickstarter, and legit enough to not scam people.

      Twisted are returning to Kickstarter soon, it's still in the teasing stage at the moment but there should be more details next week.
       
      Since their first Kickstarter wrapped up pretty dang late (even by usual Kickstarter standards), I'm hoping they've learnt a few lessons and keep this one fairly small and manageable.

      "Crosslances is an artistic reality consolidated for many years, we have dedicated ourselves very often to model making and playing miniatures in 28/32mm scale.
      This time, however, we want to launch a completely different project, an absolute novelty, our original idea.
      In fact, we want to make available to you these fantastic sculptures of ours, which can be printed directly at home, painted and placed inside your bookshelves to obtain stunning effects!"

      PDF is an inexpensive $1 supplement by Philip Reed, who has run multiple KS campaigns, and has been writing RPG material for 20+ years. He's also head bean counter at Steve Jackson Games.
       
      The rumors are essentially adventure seeds, mostly for single encounters. You have to stat out the details. See the free sample.
       
      Most of the material has been previously published in previous KS as articles. This KS is for a collection of his work. Sometimes, he'll give free PDFs of his previous work during a campaign.
       
      Personally, I recommend the PDF because you're only going to need a few pages at a time, and can cut up the printout for any illustration handouts.
       
      Dead tree copies are available through DriveThruRPG. See the KS for details.
