As made up holidays go, I prefer them nerdy and fun. So Read an RPG Book in Public Week, an artificial construct of The Escapist, fits my criteria perfectly. As an introvert, sometimes reading RPG books is as fun as playing RPGs, and I can spend hours reading even bad ones. So at some point this week let your geek flag fly and post a picture of yourself reading an RPG book in public. Or don’t, I’m not the DM of you (and if I am the DM of you, I’ll give you extra XP for posting).

Last week I posted about some RPG projects burning up Kickstarter, and I asked anyone who had or knew of a cool RPG Kickstarter campaign to contact me.To my great surprise someone did! Even better, the Kickstarter campaign I was contacted about was pretty cool so I’m happy to talk about it.
World Architect Cards is the newest offering from Simian Circle Games, and a follow-up to their popular Dungeon Architect Cards. This deck of 54 cards allows the busy GM to quickly build overland features for your world on the fly. Alternately, you can use the deck to help build your campaign world, adjusting the results as you like and allowing the deck to inspire you.
I backed it, so I’m looking forward to getting both decks, World and Dungeon. I’m always on the hunt for cool little RPG products which make my GMing life easier. Next to dice, GM and player aids are my big weakness. I can get a big, thick RPG book and be content; give me some little GMing aid and I will fiddle with that for hours, giddy like a kid. So naturally I recommend World Architect Cards, and I look forward to taking them out for a spin.
What are you backing on Kickstarter these days? Drop a comment and let me know.
