I never knew about X-D-M. But it sounds great as far as I have seen of its contents. Looking forward to a copy in 2 weeks plus.

This Kickstarter for the Eldritch RPG 2e has an interesting campaign management angle, as one of the reward tiers includes a clonable campaign database of the game world:

We've partnered with Scabard to allow all supporters of this tier and above to access the entire published world of Ainerêve through their online campaign organizer, even cloning the contents to your unique account for your games! With Scabard, you can banish campaign disorganization! Find your notes quickly and efficiently from any web-enabled device. Build an adventure in minutes, creating an entire interconnected adventure with just a few clicks. Create a rich interconnected world!

Provided that there was an easy-to-use import mechanism, perhaps something like this would be possible with Campaign Logger as well?

Titancraft Heroes Kickstarter recently launched.

This is a project that lets you create custom minis for your game, and new features will include posing your figure, as well as joining figures together. The program is web-based, and can be accessed anywhere with internet, however if you back, I ask that you please request an "offline" desktop version in the future.

One of the main reasons I am backing is not only will they print and ship the mini to you, (For a price), but you can also download an .stl file for personal 3d printing.

The link is below, check it out!

Augmented reality figures and terrain would be handy indeed at least in theory, but I don't think I would really enjoy looking at the game table through my phone.
Dragon Drop: Augmented Reality for Tabletop RPGs
Just Drag & Drop to bring digital characters, terrain and visual effects to your next tabletop role playing game!

Not to mention the DLC money sink if the system does not allow me to use my own files.

I agree. I do not see augmented reality and TTRPGs harmonizing. Ic anyone has an idea, I‘m all ears.

Today Jim Pinto launched his Kickstarter for GM advice book, named as you would expect from his dry wit - A Good Book for Bad GMs:
This is exactly what it sounds like: a comprehensive guide to gamemastering advice. The book walks the reader, step-by-step through all the roles the gamemaster takes on, all of the players they will encounter, and all the pitfalls that can trip up even the best gamemasters. Each section details advice on how to deal with disruptive players, shy people, slow adventures, boring plots, and bad habits that follow you from game to game. The book compiles over 40 years of gamemastering after attending over 100 game conventions with hundreds of strangers with some of the worst behavior you've ever seen, including other gamemasters who forced me to walk away from their tables. The book even talks about how to avoid those situations in the first place, and how to correct those behaviors if you yourself are one of those types of gamemasters.

(Actually there are two books, the second one promises to offer GM inspiration.)

His acerbic style may not be palatable to everyone, but I prefer it over the Angry GM...
