Civilization’s gotta start somewhere. And that’s just what’s happening in the world. Tribes are banding together in the deserts, in the forests, and on the plains. But tribes of what, exactly? That remains to be seen. It’s certainly not just humans out there building huts and towns. Various races of monsters, living more or less with one-another, are setting up their own settlements. It’s the start of the First Age, and it’s where your characters will start out in Heroines of the First Age, a new RPG that’s up on Kickstarter now.
From the campaign:
HFA is a tabletop role-playing game about larger-than-life monsters and the dawn of civilization. HFA is the intersection between monstergirls, RPGs, and myth & legend. It will be delivered in color printed glory and instant PDF downloadability.
Heroines of the First Age is Powered by the Apocalypse, which focuses on the actions, reactions, and consequences of the things the players do in the game.
Inspirational Media: Utawarerumono, Nibelinglied, Maoyusha, Wintersun, The Epic of Gilgamesh, Monster Musume, Conan the Barbarian, Beowulf, Kobayashi chi no Maid Dragon, Black God’s Kiss, Everyday Life with Monstergirls, The Iliad, 12 Beast, Enuma Elish, Monstress, Myth, & Legend.
There are two main assumptions that Heroines of the First Age makes:
Monsters make up at least a portion of the civilized peoples in the world. The Player Characters are heroines and heroes drawn from these demi-humans. There may or may not be baseline humans, depending on how your group wants to roll.
This is the First Age. It is the dawn of civilization. People are just coming out of the forests and caves to create towns and agriculture. Grand armies are being assembled for the first time in history. The world is fresh, new, and exciting, and there’s so much of it that has never been explored before.
The campaign is already more than 2x funded. It’s set to run for another 28 days.
