Kickstarters for Dungeon Masters: “The Queen’s Cavaliers”, a Matriarchal RPG


Kickstarter Project: The Queen’s Cavaliers RPG
Creator: Bold Pueblo Games and Caiohme Ora Snow.
End Date: June 6, 2014.
Kicktraq Progress: At time of posting, The Queen’s Cavaliers Kicktraq estimates a final funding total of over $16000, or 400% of its original funding goal. This project has seen a very steady increase in funding throughout its duration.
Funding Needed: $4000. Funding achieved! Now breaking stretch goals and searching for more in the final week!


Product: Sitting at an approximate 300 pages with the stretch goal content now being added to the core book, The Queen’s Cavaliers is a Matriarchal, Victorian era game where your charater is actually a combination of two chosen classes (this allows for hundreds of unique characters! This game also boasts, “TQC’s combat system is flexible and designed to be entertaining, with more options than simply doing damage from round to round. Want to swing on a chandelier to gain advantage over your foes, or recite an epic poem to build style points? These are all valid and effective strategies in TQC.”
Quality: Great quality! Already the stretch goals have unlocked even more beautiful spreads of artwork and special map packs, as well as free map packs and detailed adventures and supplements! The setting and whimsical, swashbuckling combat system is an incredibly unique twist on your typical Clockpunk Victorian RPG, and with all of the previous goals achieved, the book is of an optimal quality.
Tagline: “A Baroque, Clockpunk tabletop fantasy role playing game.”
Estimated Delivery: February 2015, though it may be released earlier as much of the game’s content is already written, just the artwork, editing, layout, stretch goal content and printing left!
