The Games Collective announced their new fantasy RPG, The Rise Within. There’s free, downloadable Quick Start Rules and a sample adventure over on their website for you to check out and see what the game’s all about.
From the announcement:
Young and innovative team of “The Games Collective” created a tabletop RPG game that will set trend among gamers worldwide. The game – “The Rise Within” is an extremely dynamic game in which players assume the role of Vasalli, the mighty born-humans that go through “awakening” in which their special abilities are developed. The world is in chaos with the mighty Vargan race rebelling against humanity and political struggles, while protectors of humanity – Colossi – are slowly fading. What differentiates “The Rise Within” from other tabletop RPGs is the focus that is put on narration, storytelling and mastering. However, the issue of Narrator being the most dominant and “God-like” player in other games has been solved.
In “The Rise Within” the picture rule has been implemented. The picture rule means that the more creative, imaginative and picturesque the player describes a certain scene in the game – he gets certain bonuses. To add to the game dynamics and similarity to real life “The Rise Within” has battle setting set up simultaneously for all of the players. That means that all of the players roll the dice at the same time, and their score adds to the hit success. That makes battles more realistic and response as well as defense faster. To add to the realistic setting, the XP points have been eliminated. Players are increasing a certain skill the game play.
“The Rise Within” will be presented as a project on the Kickstarter platform in order to fund everything needed for the full completion of the game.
