What is the RPG Pipeline and how to use it

The RPG Pipeline is a posting board to keep track of upcoming tabletop rpgs. When I see a new rpg released, going into crowdfunding or looking for playtesters, I post it here. I cover only games (not supplements or other add-ons) and only English language.

Castle of the Dead: A Micro Chapbook RPG


Price: $0.50


Inspire $9.99

Inspire: $9.99

Publisher: Broken Things

In Inspire, you play a spirit. The kind of thing that may one day become a god. Those other people around the table with you? Maybe they're going to end up being on the same pantheon as you. Someone needs to be at the top of this pecking order though. That's what you're going to find out as you shape the first generations of this community, each spirit trying to be the one who saves the day, and ultimately become the head of your pantheon.

As a Spirit, in the absolute most classical sense, you're going to have to start with determining what you're the spirit OF. That can be the nearby brook that gives life to the village, or the spirit of the nearby mountain, or even something increasingly esoteric. Either way, you're also going to have to choose an element that goes with you. Each suit of the card deck will go with an element, and you'll be stuck with one for the entirety of the game.

Each round, a challenge will be posed to the Village, based upon a card being drawn from the top of the deck, and each of the Spirits will propose a way to resolve it. Resolving if there is a contest of wills over an issue is done through playing cards, with your own element serving as a tie-breaker. Whoever wins is able to convince most of the community to back them, and they will change the world that the community lives in.

The Friendly Distance Bundle $15.00

The Friendly Distance Bundle: $15.00

Publisher: jackrosetree

The Friendly Distance Bundle is a collection of 14 RPG and RPG-adjacent games that are well-suited to social distancing and digital contact. We've collected these games and offered them to everyone for two reasons.

  1. We would like to encourage and support social distancing while maintaining social interaction and healthy relationships.
  2. We would like to raise money for one of the many charities that is uniquely positioned to help people right now, but isn't as obviously connected to the most immediate concern for many folks.
Pay what you like for this collection. If you can't afford anything, take a copy for free! This collection is here to help those of us that could use some structured activies with friends despite the need to maintain a social distance. What you do pay, will go to helping those in need right now.

All proceeds will go to Action Against Hunger, a charity organization dedicated to saving lives by preventing, detecting, and treating under-nutrition, particularly during & after disasters and conflicts. In addition to the rising need for medical support, the Covid-19 pandemic has created significant challenges for people at risk of hunger. This has always been a global issue, but the outbreak has exacerbated underlying issues that have turned many risky situations into dire ones.

We hope to support them with this project and we thank you for making that support possible.

Within this bundle, you will find games about:

  • Living in your favorite piece of fiction.
  • Journaling while lost and finding hope.
  • Exploring the lost art of collective music listening.
  • Being a stolen robot.
  • Comforting a child frightened by a dream.
  • Being critters in a medieval inn.
  • A radio show at the end of the world.
  • Altering details and removing context from scripts.
  • Oppressive regimes and the betrayal of friends.
  • Two-dimensional characters.
  • Keeping mum about a high school prank.
  • Being a very respectable pigeon.
  • Secret communication between lovers.
  • Discovering magic and hiding it from shady organizations.

Paper Arcade vol. 1 [$10.00]

Paper Arcade vol. 1 [$10.00]:

Li%2B7MG.jpg


Paper Arcade, vol. 1 has four games, by four different creators. Each of the games in Paper Arcade, vol. 1 are based around the community-chosen theme of Card-Based Mechanics. Each of the game pitches was voted on by the Paper Arcade Community. The four games are:

Elements in Harmony, by Danielle DeLisle

The players are Elemental Knights in the service of the Elemental Queens. The sisters have been at war for as long as anyone can remember and the knights, who genuinely like and respect each other, ally to stop the fighting. If the knights can gather the queens in one place, they can broker a truce between them. It is a difficult quest with dangerous obstacles, but the knights are brave and worthy.

Found by Rescuers by Joe Young

A survival horror journaling game for a single player, the Survivor, trying to stay alive through a single night in an isolated location. Every day, by the light of the moon, the Survivor draws a card from a standard deck to determine which event of 52 occurs in that hour of the night, answering the questions presented on the card in a journal. After twelve days of journaling, representing the twelve hours of the night you spend alone, the game ends, resolving based on events that have already occurred and the final card drawn as the sun finally rises.

It Goes Without Saying, by momatoes

Uh-oh! Ellen's in hot water. She's in an interview. Or a date. Or in the midst of an alcohol-fueled rant to her mother. Regardless of the situation, you, as Invisible Beings Who Control Ellen's Communication Centers, must bail her out of this dire situation. Together, play cards that indicate what bits of messaging you think Ellen should say.  But be careful! Whatever message one player crafts has an effect on the next message their fellow player makes. Teamwork makes the dream work, but can you save Ellen's communication woes when you yourself can't even talk?

Psychopomp, by Chris Challice 

You are a psychopomp, a spirit who guides the departed to where they are meant to be. If you succeed, they will find peace. If you fail, they will wander as tortured ghosts. You are different from other psychopomps; you were once human. Through titanic effort, you attained your current existence for one, specific purpose. There is a person you cherish, one that has yet to cross the veil. You are determined to be there for them when they do.

Profits from all sales of Paper Arcade vol. 1 are split evenly between the publisher and the four game designers featured (20% each).

(As I'm sure you can tell, this was inspired by all those kaiju movies we know and love... But mostly it was inspired by me watching Godzilland on youtube and wishing there was a ttrpg where you play kaiju and can just have fun and destroy things with your pals and live it up monster style.)

Memories for Spots with Moments in What Remains of Your Special Place [Free]

Memories for Spots with Moments in What Remains of Your Special Place [Free]:

Place in your head you haven't gone back to since when you got busy?‒it made you this. It's a tabletop roleplaying game. So you'd sit with it, be in it.

No sprucing, needed; you can roll for that, though‒it takes time. To recall. What's where. No saving needed, from anything; you can roll to, though, save things‒it takes presence. To reform. What's bad.

Capture it, the audio, your visit; compose n enwomb a pillow fort. For warmer sound, for the record. Stick it to the home screen, your resulting thought-sopped lung-bray, the record. Play it. Later, to yourself. When you catch yourself. And you see you refuse yourself a break.

Inspired by: The Ocean at the End of the Lane and Alone Among the Stars

Uses a standard 52 card deck and/or a six-sided dice.

Mnemonic: Beyond the Rift [$20.00]

Mnemonic: Beyond the Rift [$20.00]:

eUR2Ig.png


It is a futile game we play. It won't bring our friends home. But perhaps it can give us a little peace, to imagine that their struggles end with a small measure of hope.

To our friends beyond the rift, these words are for you.
It has been centuries since the end of the Endless War, when the Grey Mage destroyed the dragons and tore the city of Tower in half. The part that remains in our world stands as a reminder of the cost that was paid for peace. What happened to the other half of Tower is a mystery. The ritual game, Beyond the Rift, is a way for those in the world of Mnemonic to imagine what life might be like for those trapped on the other side of the Rift.

Beyond the Rift is a tabletop game for 1 to 3 players, which can be played together in the same place or remotely over Discord, Skype, FaceTime, or even text messages. Each player is responsible for one aspect of play, from creating the world beyond the rift, to describing its dangers, to overcoming those dangers and finding resolution for the city of Tower.


What's the game like?

The style of play is meant to model the journey of metroidvania video games like Hollow Knight. The world is developed as you explore, with mysteries being solved in your group's descriptions of them. Unlike most metroidvania games, however, Beyond the Rift doesn't ask you to spend hours backtracking through areas you've already explored, or trying again and again to defeat a challenging boss fight. Instead, you'll roll once to determine what the Echo's efforts look like in the story: do they overcome the obstacle in front of them with ease? Or do they have to try over and over again before they finally succeed?

If you want to know more about the world where Beyond the Rift takes place, the ritual's full content also includes a Setting Guide that sheds light on some of the more interesting parts of the setting. You are welcome to use or ignore any of it to suit your group's needs.

What do I need to play?

Beyond the Rift is designed to be fully playable with anywhere from one to three players, and no two players are required to share the same play materials, making this a perfect game to play remotely. You can also play it as a solo experience.

To play, you will need:

  • A full deck of poker cards, including 2 Jokers (used by the Weaver)
  • 4 six-sided dice (used by the Adversary)
  • Some paper to write and draw on (used by the Echo)
  • Something to write an draw with (used by the Echo)
The full game is expected to take between one and several hours, but your group can pause play at any time. When you set the game aside, the Weaver in your group will want to make sure that any cards that have already been played remain separate from the deck, to ensure that the same cards aren't played more than once.

Sounds great! What does it cost?

Beyond the Rift is designed as a $20 game, and when you choose to Support this Ritual on the store page, that is the amount that will be set for you by default. If you can afford to pay, I'd really appreciate it.

However, the full ritual game is accessible directly within the project's store page; there's no extra files you need to download, and you can read the full text without paying. That means no one is going to stop you at the door asking if you paid, and if you can't pay right now, no one is going to stop you from going in. Times are hard right now, and everyone's gaming budget is just a little bit tighter than usual. Do what you need to for yourself and your family.

Can I share my story?

Absolutely! If you have an anecdote you want to share, you can do so directly on the store page using the Comments section. Or you can share it with me on Twitter at @MnemonicRPG. (Be sure to follow that account if you want to see more updates on the world of Mnemonic!)

Please enjoy!

In Deep Country, the land stretches forever. The long shadow of our embarrassing past. Villages rot away, trees don’t bother to flower anymore, and the potato is eaten cold from the ground. Things were better before. Better before Bastion. 

In the Underground are impossible tunnels beneath time and space. Devious machines release their creations into the corridors. All while the twisting network grows and touches everything. Connects everything. You can get anywhere, but there’s always a challenge. 

You have a failed career and a colossal debt.

Treasure is your only option.

A spark of hope in Electric Bastionland.

Electric Bastionland is a roleplaying game written by Chris McDowall, author of the critically-acclaimed Into The Odd. It uses and expands upon the systems developed in Into The Odd, resulting in a rules-set that’s easy to run as a Referee and even easier to play. It’s not a sourcebook or an expansion - it’s a standalone journey into an unknowable world.

  • the best mechaniucs

A note from Liz, the owner of AHP: Apologies, the goblins momentarily took over DriveThru account and uploaded this game PDF. They allowed me to add this disclaimer if I agreed not to take it down. This book is a 19 page, a6-size mini game. It has a lack of edits, a lot of caps lock... and is entirely in comic sans. To its credit - you will be able to play a short, albeit hetic, game about goblins going on a raid with it. Download at your own peril.

The only city that matters. Too big to fall, too complicated to function. A mess of alleyways, legalese and crowds. Aliens, Mockeries and People always in your way and your business.

Monster Butts vol 2: Winter Electro-loo [$2.00]:

This is a 34 page long mini zine that came after the first issue of Monster Butts! These are the winter butts! Drawing of popular fantasy tabletop role-playing creatures thrown into a winter wonderland and sketched silly.

It’s a time of year where all monsters gather to give and get, with fast friends and faster enemies, and the gruesomest of frenemies. The gifts will be passed around the room to give everyone a chance for something they want!
