In many fantasy RPGs, technology and magic has been fairly static for quite a long time. Things have been the way they are for hundreds of years. Now, think about our own world and what things were like in 1920 compared to here in 2020. Age of Ambition looks to fix the problem of stagnant fantasy worlds staying the same forever with a new place filled with invention and change. The new RPG is up on Kickstarter now.
From the campaign:
Welcome to a brave new age of promise or peril...
Age of Ambition is a fantasy roleplaying game set in a world rapidly leaving the traditional fantasy milieu behind. It's the game of forward-facing fantasy! Where the heroes help guide the world into a brave new era of promise or peril.
What makes Age of Ambition different?
We’re at a moment where fantasy, as a literary genre, has realized that societies change, grow and evolve. Fantasy gaming, however, has unfortunately lagged behind, mired in static worlds with no significant technological, magical or social progress.
Age of Ambition changes that. It presents a world in a state of rapid flux, where magical and technological advancements are challenging the long-standing social order. It’s a world that’s grown beyond medieval fantasy to become something new.
Furthermore, Age of Ambition casts the heroes as agents of social change. They are inventors and agitators, spies and civic leaders, who help guide the world into a brave and uncertain future.
The Kickstarter's more than 2x funded with 22 days left.
