My absolute favorite RPG sessions always involve a heavy dose of scoundrels and rogues. Which is why I'm backing “Project: Dark” by Will Hindmarch.
In fact the single most memorable session in my gaming experience started with everyone having committed a crime and were given a chance for freedom – Irv the Mole if you are keeping score at home.
I know that there are those that would just as soon wait until something is complete and released so they don't assume a financial risk – or they simply don't want to wait. And for those on the sidelines, I can understand; Personally I have a few Kickstarters that I've relegated to the “if it shows up, fine” category.
I have personally met Will on numerous occasions; And played in a few of the games run by him. He is the utmost professional game designer with a solid track record. He truly understands games.
And while I missed my chance at GenCon to play early drafts of the game, those were able to spoke quite highly of the game.
The Kickstarter is already funded, and I can promise my players that come March this will be brought to the table.
