Pillars of Eternity: Lords of the Eastern Reach Card Game Kickstarter Launched

You might remember that Obsidian CEO Feargus Urquhart claimed that a card game based on Pillars of Eternity would be announced soon during an interview with PC Gamer back in April, and that it would be funded through a Kickstarter campaign. I won't blame you if you had forgotten that, but the Kickstarter campaign for the project has launched today, with a funding goal of $30,000. The game is being developed by Zero Radius Games, with design work from Chris Taylor (lead designer on Fallout) and Scott Everts (Fallout, Fallout 2 and Fallout: New Vegas). Just to clarify, we're talking about a physical card game, not a digital product like Obsidian's own upcoming adaption of the Pathfinder Adventure Card Game.

And an explanation of the game's mechanics:

We probably won't follow this project as closely as an actual Kickstarter campaign or new project from Obsidian, but will still keep you updated for any big development.
