I got burned on supporting Universal Fan Con (if you didn’t already know, the convention didn’t happen…long story) and while it slowed down my support of indie projects, it hasn’t completely stopped me. So here’s what I’ve donated to over the last couple of months. Continue reading “Projects I’m Supporting, Part Seven”

For those unfamiliar, The “I Got Five on It” series consists of posts where I give my five thoughts–right or wrong—on a book, graphic novel/comic, film, or TV show.

Midwest BFSA is getting a group together to play Ki Khanga in the next couple of months. We’ll let you know when you get this scheduled!
Ki Khanga: The Sword and Soul Role Playing Game, by Balogun Ojetade and Milton Davis, puts you in the role of a character of your liking in a world of mystery and magic; of villainy and victory; of sword… and soul.
Will you delve for lost artifacts in the ruins of ancient temples? Strap on beaded armor and an nkisi necklace to battle undead legions as they storm your city upon the backs of skeletal camels, or defend your village from a swarm of ravenous impundulu? Whether you’re making your way through the magical forests of Wandatu or fighting to survive in the palm oil-lit back alleys of Sati-Baa, you and your team will need all your wits, combat skill, and magic to make it through. But most of all, you’ll need each other.
This rulebook is the essential centerpiece of Ki Khanga: The Sword and Soul Role Playing Game
