Sitting around a campfire and telling stories is just part of human nature. We’ve been doing it for thousands and thousands of years. Well, Firelight, a new card-driven RPG that’s up on Kickstarter now, looks to take that tradition and bring it to your tabletop (far away from the nasty, biting insects and such of the outside world). It is designed for quick play. From set-up and character creation to having told a whole 5-act story takes a little less than 2 hours.
From the campaign:
Firelight is a new card-based role-playing game for 2-4 players that takes place in a colorful and action-packed fantasy world!
Whether you’re a longtime role-player or just curious about fantasy RPGs, Firelight provides you the tools to tell complete, 5-act stories with only 5 minutes of setup time. Each session is designed to be completed in a single 60-100 minute sitting, consisting of character creation and the telling of one complete story.
The campaign’s around 3/4 of the way to funding with still 28 days left to go.
