There's a big debate over what sort of energy we should use. Coal, natural gas, wind, solar, nuclear. In the future, though, ceridium, a brand new element, will provide 1/4 of the power we need. However, there are side-effects, which include creating a new race of people and bringing back magic. Some crazy side-effects, indeed. But that's where you find yourself in Entromancy, a new cyberpunk fantasy RPG up on Kickstarter now.
From the campaign:
Entromancy is a tabletop roleplaying game set in San Francisco in the late 21st century. In our world, a quarter of the earth's power now runs on ceridium, a newly discovered element that has had the unintended consequence of spawning a new race of people, and several forms of magic that were once thought to have been forgotten.
In Entromancy, you’ll take the role of a character in a futuristic, technology-driven, magic-rich world complete with espionage, spellcasting, hacking, and engaging action sequences.
The core system of Entromancy is based on the world’s most popular roleplaying game, and will allow you to choose from five diverse races and five unique classes to create your character and begin your story. You’ll progress your character by taking on challenging missions and eventually embracing one of the game’s five brutally powerful destinies, which are like prestige classes.
Want to stealth hack your way into enemy territory as a Vanguard, enhancing your faction standing with the underrace nation of Aurichome? You can do that. Interested in putting together a crew of NIGHT Agents to clean out San Francisco's Presidio of zombie-like ragers? We've got you covered. Striving to climb the ranks of the Unaligned so that you can unlock the ferociously powerful, chaos-based magic of the Entromancer? No one's stopping you...other than the other two power hungry factions standing in your way.
The campaign is already over its funding goal, so it's on to stretch goals for the next 27 days.
