Geek Native | Swordsfall: Afropunk, African-cyberpunk, RPG setting kickstarts in just an hour

Geeky Preview

One of our first write-ups was a preview from the online blog site Geek Native. They do a good job of summarizing the Kickstarter and getting it hype!

Swordsfall is as much an art book as it is an RPG and the Kickstarter is to fund that art. The setting came from Brandon Dixon’s frustration that so much of fantasy lore, whether it high fantasy or low fantasy, was Eurocentric in flavour.

He set up a Patreon and a World Anvil to share Swordsfall. That’s now worth at least $324 a month in Patreon backers, so there’s clearly demand, and a Kickstarter feels like a sensible next step. You can follow the progress online.


Creator and Author of Swordsfall. He's a longtime omni-nerd who grew up during the classic days of Toonami, TechTV, and Transformers. However, as a black man in the hobby, he found himself longing for more stories that told the adventures of people that looked like him. Creating Swordsfall has not only been an effort to be the change he wanted to see but also as his own personal journey.
