Normally, in an RPG, you work your character around the rules of the game to create what you want. Nomnivore Games thought that was kinda silly. So, instead, they created a game system that builds the rules around what you want to do with your character. That's where Emberwind comes in, it's their new system and it's up on Kickstarter now.
From the campaign:
EMBERWIND is a new breed of tabletop RPG based on the belief that games should adapt to their players, and not the other way around.
EMBERWIND's modular game engine allows you to combine rulesets to suit the epic Heroes in your party. We're turning to Kickstarter to launch the EMBERWIND Core, an engine that offers the base for fast, fun, intense, customizable gaming. In the future, we'll release additional modules and content packages to help you further customize and deepen your play experience.
The Core engine combines the best elements of our favourite RPGs and video games from the past 20 years, plus some new innovations of our own, all streamlined to make it easy for new players to pick up and for experienced players to dive deeper into strategy and storytelling.
The campaign's around 1/2 of the way to their goal with still 30 days left to go.
