Are you down for the Unity? (We know 311 is, anyway) Well, Zensara Studios is certainly down with the Unity, as they’ve launched their Kickstarter campaign for their new RPG system. So, if you’re in the market for a new fantasy rpg with some interesting arcane technology, you just might want to check it out.
In Unity, the god that created the universe (along with the four races that inhabit the world) didn’t like how things were going, seeing their creations become full of haughty hubris. So they sort of blew stuff up and left everyone for dead. Seems like a bit of a half-done tantrum, but I’m not a deity. Anyway, it’s now up to those four races to live in a world that was torn asunder and a god that doesn’t like them all that much.
As for the rules, they are designed to allow more of a teamwork-style tactical feeling to the game. So it’s not just, “I hit them with my sword.” “Ok, now I’ll hit them with my staff.” “I’ll shoot an arrow at it.” without much interaction. Players can, instead, combine their skills in order to overcome obstacles. The system includes four races (as you could tell from above), as well as 9 classes that have different branching ways that you can grow your character.
The Kickstarter campaign is up and running now. They’re already close to their goal (if they haven’t hit it already by the time you read this) with still 31 days left on the clock.
