The Last Days of Anglekite on Kickstarter

Magpie Games is running a Kickstarter campaign to fund The Last Days of Anglekite, a "Chaos World" setting for Dungeon World.
The Last Days of Anglekite is a Dying Earth-style weird fantasy setting for Dungeon World in which you play members of the Anglekite Adventurer's Guild, the last line of defense for a dying world threatened by catastrophic powers. The Last Days of Anglekite has everything you need to play out an epic struggle to save a world at the end of its time, drawing from weird sword and sorcery tales and over-the-top fantasy by authors like Jack Vance, Clark Ashton Smith, and Michael Moorcock.
Stretch goals for the campaign fund the creation of additional Chaos World settings, starting with The Cold Ruins of Lastlife.

The Last Days of Anglekite also includes advice for running LongCons. A LongCon is an extended play experience where multiple events at a larger game convention share a storyline that progresses from one slot to the next. This convention format has been growing in popularity over the last few years, and Anglekite promises to give you the tools you need to run a LongCon of your own.

At the time of this writing, the Kickstarter campaign is over 200% funded. Pledging as little as $10 gets you all the PDFs produced through the course of the campaign and its stretch goals.

It is the second edition of Discworld RPG, following the original GURPS Discworld published in 1998 and reprinted under the Discworld RPG name in 2002.

For those who may not be familiar, Discworld is the setting of an extremely popular series of fantasy novels written by Sir Terry Pratchett. The Disc consists of a flat, circular plane resting on the backs of four elephants who in turn stand on the shell of an enormous turtle which swims through space. It began as a fairly traditional — if satirical — fantasy world, but through over 40 novels, Pratchett advanced the setting into a rich canvas on which to poke fun at the peculiarities of modern life.

The first edition of the Discworld RPG was based on GURPS Third Edition, and it included GURPS Lite, a pared down version of the core system. Still, it relied perhaps too much on knowledge of th…
