Battlelords Sci-Fi RPG Up On Kickstarter
23rd Century Productions is looking to bring you a new edition of Battlelords, the sci-fi RPG set in a future full of intrigue and danger. This will be the 7th edition of the game, originally released in 1990. Be one of 15 different core races and deck your character out with a wide array of high-tech gear. Head out across the stars to make a name for yourself. The project is up on Kickstarter now.
From the campaign:
Battlelords is a game set in a dangerous future. An Alliance of Humans and aliens is fighting for survival. The Ak-Nar-Ryn (aka “Arachnids”) have destroyed worlds and decimated populations as they advance into Alliance territory. Against the backdrop of war, players can take the fight to the Ak-Nar-Ryn, become explorers seeking new aliens species for allies and technology or participate in espionage to further the goals of their corporate backers.
There are many core species and each has their specialty and their own story. You can play as a Chatilian so you can read minds and use mental powers. Be the ultimate infiltration specialist as a Mazian transforming to look like a Human, or a tree, or a desk, or pretty much anything else you can think of. If you’d like to go with brute strength, pick a Pythonian and throw someone for distance. Play a cunning and ruthless Phentari and make your enemies suffer. There are 15 different species to choose from!
Choose a path through life in a dangerous future. Be a pirate, a mercenary, an adventurer exploring a rift in space, a spy, or a hero. On the right adventure, it could be all of the above. Write your own stories in a big universe of adventures. The possibilities are as limitless as the stars.
The game offers:
15 different highly detailed species to choose from as a character.
An expansive, galaxy spanning setting, with limitless potential.
Detailed setting information for running a campaign for Alliance soldiers, mercenaries, pirates, spies, and corporate espionage agents
Pre-made teams, ready to play.
Armor ranges from light body armor, to mechanized battle armor, to the massive walking tanks called Ultra Armor.
Each suit of armor is highly customizable, with over a 150 options to choose from.
Over a dozen weapon systems, and hundreds of weapons to equip your character. Arm yourself with lasers, disintegrators, pulse weapons, grav sheers, grenade launchers, frost guns, and Omega weapons, just to name a few.
The campaign is about 2/3 of the way to their goal, but there’s only 7 days left on the clock.
