Hiya! Maxmage here, popping back to MUD to shill for a really awesome tabletop RPG Kickstarter. Hope that's OK in this forum!
The Kickstarter is for the wonderful new tabletop RPG Chuubo's Marvelous Wish-Granting Engine. It's written by the talented Jenna Moran, author of the fantastic Nobilis.
It's heavily inspired by a number of anime works, especially its Pastoral (Studio Ghibli works like Kiki's Delivery Service or My Neighbour Totoro) and Techno (The World Ends With You, Durarara!!!, with perhaps a dash of Scott Pilgrim) modes.
It can also handle epic and dreamlike fantasy, as well, while maintaining a focus on characters and their stories. We're up to $61.5k now, so the Miyazaki-inspired supplement Fortitude:By The Docks Of Big Lake is automatically included in pledges of $15 or more. If we can make it to $80k the (huge) campaign The Glass-Maker's Dragon will be included too!
Thanks for listening. Some day I'll have time to return to MUD!

PS In case you're interested, Nobilis is basically an RPG of playing demi-gods, not a million miles removed from Sandman (although you're not stuck with the Endless, you can be the god of any concept you like). A PDF is available with a lot of the pledge levels!
