SagaBorn is a new fantasy RPG that’s up on Kickstarter now. It’s designed to keep the rules out of the way for when you just want to tell a cool story with your friends.
From the campaign:
The SagaBorn Roleplaying Game was created as a simplified D20 system. Its goal is to be simple, streamlined, and efficient. It is meant to encourage more storytelling and epic action rather than browsing through rulebooks and arguing over what is “allowed.”
This 8 level system was created for the Dark Return setting, but can be used in almost any fantasy setting.
Seven playable races: elf, dwarf, half-dwarf, human, elfling, faun, and feral elfling.
Eight classes: fighter, barbarian, archeon, luminar, wylder, bard, ranger, and rogue.
Simplified skill system: only eight skills cover all the things an adventurer may need in order to overcome adventure obstacles. We replace Feats with a flexible point-based Talent system.
Heroic action: a simple mechanism to resolve most non-combat conflicts. Each party rolls a D20, adds the appropriate bonus, and the highest roller wins!
A simple mana-based magic system. Spells are organized by mana cost with no level or class restrictions.
We have some nice Funding rewards, and all backers will have their names mentioned as helping to bring SagaBorn to life!
