Streets of Bedlam

My former partner in webcomics Shawn Gaston passed this note along to me:

Would you do me a favor and share a link to the Streets of Bedlam Kickstarter with your readers? I’m doing the arts for it, and we’re already 300% funded, but if we hit $10,000 before the Kickstarter ends, Ed Lima (Borderlands, Doom 3) will compose a bitching soundtrack for the game.

Streets of Bedlam is a tabletop RPG game / setting. I don’t really understand Kickstarter or how it works, but for those of you into kicking and starting things, this may fall into your area of expertise. You can read more about Streets of Bedlam at the official Streets of Bedlam website, which is conveniently located on the internet.

    You’re a good man!

    I should also mention, anyone who pitches in at least $5 will be immortalized as an NPC in the game.


  2. Someone says:

    Borderlands had a soundtrack?

  3. Scott (Duneyrr) says:

    Thanks for the heads up on the Kickstarter, Shamus. I try to help Kickstart projects for friends, family, and products that I would want to buy/want to see in publication. If you ever see anything there that YOU want to see happen, chances are WE want to see it happen; so make sure to put them up on your blog.!

    Hey Shamus – relevant to your previous column and this one:

    You noted that this blog has moved away from sit-down RPGs. Are you still playing any games, or has that fallen out of your life as you play more computer games instead? While I enjoy your dissection of the online games, I do miss some of your earlier columns about traditional RPGs.

    • Shamus says:

      I miss it too. I haven’t rolled the dice in over a year. I’m busy. My gaming group has, for the most part, gotten married. It’s the first thing we talk about when we bump into each other, but it’s so hard making a game happen.

    “Streets of Bedlam is a tabletop RPG game / setting.”

    “is a tabletop RPG game / setting”

    “RPG game”


  6. Yar Kramer says:

    Oh, look, I go to click the link and it’s already past the $10,000 mark. ;)

  7. Aldowyn says:

    ZOMG you changed the text coding help! I just saw this! Love the examples, thanks!

    Oh, and isn’t kickstarter more or less the same as rockethub (except bigger)? I assume you remember how that works from Extra Credits’ foray on there.
